“Fast food is a food which is speedily available as well as provides, frequently at eating places as well as seasonally related with not so much cost and nutritional things like hamburgers, French fries, and soda.” The teenagers of today will be the future of tomorrow; therefore, concentrating on today's adolescents and educating them on how to modify their behaviours toward healthy eating patterns is critical. The dietary issue is one of the most serious health issues confronting millions of children of all ages. There are lots of effects of fast food on the health of adolescents. Because of peer pressure, shortage of time, attractive packages and tastes they become closer to take fast food. Fast foods are at large quantity obtain in educational institutions through various stores. Canteens are available in educational institutions to offer soda water, soft drink, cracks and lots of other foods of less nutritious rate(value). There are many ill impacts and effects of fast food and persons are not aware of its dangerous effects. It can cause many harmful disorders. Prolonged use of fast food is the reason for medical issues, chubbiness means obesity, GI Tract problem and increased fat. Excessive intake of fast foods may reduce appetite and eliminate the chance for nutrients in foods. These quick meals are rich in fat, salt, and sugar, and they are the root cause of chronic illnesses such as obesity, diabetes, and cancer in later years of life. This review focuses on what is fast food and its effect on adolescents and the evidence of its effects on mortality, morbidity and quality of life.

Background: Diabetes is a significant health problem that has reached worrisome proportions: almost half of the world's population now has diabetes. Diabetes mellitus, or diabetes, is a severe, long-term disease in which a person's blood glucose levels are elevated due to their body's inability to make any or enough insulin, or to properly utilise the insulin that it does produce. The chemicals extracted from medicinal plants were shown to be both safer and more bioactive than manufactured medicines. Objective: The goal of this research was to use molecular docking to find possible binding affinities of luteolin, a phytocompound from Rumex vesicarius L, to five target proteins, in order to find the lead molecule against diabetes. Methodology: One chemical was isolated from Rumex vesicarius L. leaves in this research. The binding affinity of the complexes was calculated using molecular docking studies. The docking procedure was carried out using AutoDock Tools 1.5.6, which brought the ligand together with the target proteins. Results: The binding energies of Luteolin with major Glutamine-fructose-6-phosphate amido transferase (GFAT1), Pancreatic α-Amylase, Forkhead box protein O1(FOX01), α--glucosidase, and Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) were determined to be -6.89, -6.80, -6.36, -9.35, and -7.72 kcal. Conclusion: Our findings suggest that luteolin can target not only α--glucosidase but also DPP4 and other targets, suggesting that they may be used as type 2 diabetes mellitus inhibitors. We believe that this phytochemical, luteolin, may be utilised in preclinical studies as an anti-diabetic drug to combat diabetes mellitus.

Objective: To compare insulin resistance and beta-cell function in nondiabetic, prediabetic, and diabetic subjects in a subset of obese Pakistani population. Materials and Methods: Two hundred and ten obese subjects underwent anthropometric measurements. After overnight fasting for 8 hours, 6 cc blood was drawn for fasting blood glucose level, fasting insulin level. Blood glucose samples were taken after drinking 75 gm glucose in 260 ml water. HOMA IR and HOMA BETA% were calculated by the formula. Subjects were divided into obese nondiabetic, obese prediabetic and obese diabetic according to WHO criteria. Results: Out of 210 obese subjects, 53 (25.2%) were males and 157 (74.8%) were females. The mean BMI was 32.39±5.21. Mean abdominal circumference was 102.78±10.16. There were 101(48%) obese nondiabetic, 51(24%) were found to be obese prediabetic, 58(28%) were found to be obese diabetic. Mean insulin resistance in obese nondiabetic subjects was 2.8 ±3.7, in prediabetic 8.5± 12.3, in diabetic was 17.7±24.6. Mean HOMA beta was 245.3±267.4 in obese nondiabetic subjects, 290.5±298.4 in prediabetic, and 16.6±57 in diabetic. Conclusion: There was a significantly increased incidence of prediabetes and diabetes in obese subjects. Prediabetic and diabetic subjects were found to have marked insulin resistance. Beta-cell function was markedly reduced in diabetic subjects having a family history of diabetes, emphasizing the genetic predisposition to develop beta-cell exhaustion.

Aims: Search for non-invasive methods for diagnosing late transplant kidney dysfunction, which can improve control and monitor the condition of the kidney transplant, characterization diagnostic role of dopplerography of renal vessels in patients with late dysfunction of the transplanted kidney. Study design: When conducting dopplerometry, blood flow indices were analyzed from 3 to 6 cycles of heart contractions, followed by an averaged indicator. In addition, the linear blood flow velocity was assessed separately from the renal vein. Place and Duration of Study: For the period 2016-2017 Ultrasound of an allopod was performed in 60 recipients of RT (RENAL TRANSPLANT) in the late postoperative period. Methodology: The average age of the patients was 38.89 ± 1.52 years. There were 34 men (56.6 7%), 26 women (43.33%). All patients were divided into two groups: patients with preserved function and patients with RT (RENAL TRANSPLANT) dysfunction. Related kidney transplantation (RRT) was performed in 55.0% of patients, in 45.0% - cadaveric kidney transplantation (CKP). The groups were comparable in the main clinical and demographic parameters. Results: The reverse dynamics was observed when examining the level of the renal filtration function indicator, the estimated glomerular filtration rate (SKF) - at a TAMX level of more than 15 cm/sec, glomerular filtration was 51.18 ± 1.93 (47.32-55.04) ml/min (p <0.01), and with a decrease in TAMX of less than 15 cm/sec, the level of SKF decreased significantly, more than twice, to the level of 25.40 ± 2.19 (21.02-29.78) ml/min <0.001). Conclusion: The determination of dopplerographic parameters for TP with preserved and especially with impaired depuration function with a direct assessment of TAMX opens up wide opportunities in non-invasive assessment of RT (RENAL TRANSPLANT) changes, identification of developing complications, as well as improved transplant survival.

The urinary tract infections (UTI’s) are common infections that can affect kidneys, ureters, and urethra. About 40% of urinary tract infections are caused during hospitalization and globally an estimated 600,000 patients are affected per year. Urinary tract infections are more prevalent in women due to their short urethra and its anatomical proximity to the anal orifice. A bladder infection may cause pelvic pain, increased urge to urinate, pain with urination and blood in the urine. A kidney infection may cause back pain, nausea, vomiting and fever. Bacteriuria is a major risk factor for the development of urinary tract infections during pregnancy and with further risk of preterm birth & pyelonephritis if untreated. This study was carried out to isolate and identify bacteria involved in the first trimester of pregnancy. A cross sectional study was conducted from February, 2019 to June 2019. Structured questionnaires were used to collect data from pregnant women. UTI was diagnosed by urine culture on standard culture media. Out of 25 pregnant women included in this study, 15 (60.0%) were symptomatic and 10 (40.0%) asymptomatic. Escherichia coli(64%) was the most commonly found bacterial isolate followed by Psedomonas aeruginosa (20%), Klebsiella sp. (12%) and Proteus sp. (0.4%). Antibiotic susceptibility test by Kirby-Bayer Disc diffusion method revealed that all the bacterial isolates subjected to antibiogram test were sensitive or susceptible to Gentamycin, Nalidixic acid, Nitrofurantoin, Amikacin and Co-trimoxazole, and resistant to Amoxicillin, Norfloxacin and erythromycin were resistant to all bacterial isolates.
