Fatty liver disease: The three lesser-known signs indicating your liver is in trouble

According to a recent study, an estimated six to seven percent of the world’s population has liver fibrosis and doesn’t know it because they don’t have any major symptoms. Often people remain unaware they have something wrong with their liver unless something is diagnosed during tests carried out for another reason. Any symptoms that do show tend to be non-specific and people often dismiss them as being caused by something else. Experiencing flu-like signs, fever or shivery attacks could be an indication your liver is in trouble.

Nausea, a disinterest in food and weight loss are some early symptoms of liver problems.

In fact, the initial stages of hepatitis often bring flu-like symptoms, including digestive discomfort.

Cirrhosis is the presence of scar tissue in the liver, the largest solid organ in your body.

The early signs of cirrhosis are often subtle, making it likely to go undetected for several years.

Later, it can cause flu-like symptoms, such as fatigue, fever, loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting. In later stages it can cause malnutrition, swelling in the legs or abdomen, and jaundice.

Researchers have noted that exhaustion and fatigue are the single most common symptom of liver damage, said My Liver Exam.

The health site continued: “Unfortunately, the specific causes of liver disease-related fatigue and exhaustion are not fully understood.

“Researchers speculate that the root cause of liver disease-related chronic fatigue may be caused by changes in brain chemistry and hormone levels which result from impaired liver function.

“In particular, altered levels of corticotrophins, serotonin, and noradrenaline may be at the root of depleted energy levels.

“Researchers also note that fatigue-related symptoms are likely worsened by a general increase in the presence of toxic by-products in the blood, which the damaged liver cannot properly eliminate.”

Liver cancer can be caused by alcohol abuse, having a long-term hepatitis B or hepatitis C viral infection, haemochromatosis or primary biliary cirrhosis – a long-term liver disease which damages the bile ducts in the liver.

NHS Choices said: “The exact cause of liver cancer is unknown, but most cases are associated with damage and scarring of the liver known as cirrhosis.

“It’s also believed obesity and an unhealthy diet can increase the risk of liver cancer because this can lead to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.”

Trouble Falling Asleep a Modifiable Risk Factor for Dementia?

Difficulty falling asleep may be predictive of future cognitive impairment in older adults ― and depressive symptoms and vascular disease may partially drive this association, new research suggests.

Trouble falling asleep “may be a modifiable risk factor for later-life cognitive impairment and dementia,” said lead author Afsara Zaheed, PhD candidate in clinical science, Department of Psychology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

“Patients should also be aware of the importance of insomnia on cognitive functioning so that they can bring up these concerns with their providers early,” she told Medscape Medical News.

The findings were presented at SLEEP 2021: 35th Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies.

Poor Sleep Common With Age

As many as one half of older adults report having poor sleep quality and insomnia, and growing evidence suggests that insomnia may be a unique risk factor for cognitive decline in later life, Zaheed explained.

To investigate further, the researchers analyzed data on 2496 adults aged 51 years and older who were participants in the Health and Retirement Study, a longitudinal study of aging in a nationally representative population of older adults.

In 2002, participants were asked how often they had trouble falling asleep, woke up during night, woke up too early, and were not able to fall asleep again and how often they felt really rested when they woke up in the morning.

In 2016, participants’ cognition was assessed using a battery of neuropsychological tests that gauged episodic memory, executive function, language, visuospatial/construction, and processing speed.

Analyses controlled for sociodemographics and baseline global cognitive performance and the influence of depressive symptoms and vascular disease.

Compared with other insomnia symptoms, having difficulty falling asleep in 2002 was the main insomnia symptom that was predictive of cognitive impairment 14 years later, in 2016.

More frequent trouble falling asleep was predictive of poorer episodic memory, executive function, language, processing speed, and visuospatial performance.

The associations between sleep initiation and later cognitive impairment were partially explained by depressive symptoms and vascular disease burden for all domains except episodic memory, which was only partially explained by depressive symptoms.

Unclear Mechanism

Zaheed said research is needed to uncover neurophysiologic mechanisms underlying the observed associations.

“It may be that chronic difficulty with falling asleep is associated with inflammatory or metabolic processes that negatively affect brain structure and function over time,” she said.

“Insomnia has also been linked with higher accumulation of protein aggregates in the brain that disrupt cell communication and are characteristic of late-life disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease,” she added.

“While our project did not directly investigate these potential causal pathways between insomnia and cognition, our results suggest that investigating these potential mechanisms is an important area for future research,” Zaheed said.

“While additional intervention research is needed to determine whether targeting insomnia in older patients can have lasting cognitive benefits, results from this study suggest that discussing insomnia symptoms at the primary care level may be beneficial for both doctors and patients,” Zaheed added.

“By targeting insomnia ― for example, through an evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy approach ― individuals may improve various mental and physical health outcomes in addition to improving their sleep quality,” Zaheed said.

Reached for comment, Shaheen E. Lakhan, MD, PhD, neurologist in Newton, Massachusetts, said, “There is a strong link between chronic sleep disturbances and cognitive impairment, including dementia.

“This study further supports this link and specifically calls out initiating sleep (as opposed to staying asleep) as the culprit. It also raises the hypothesis that the link is primarily mediated by depression and vascular disease; however, the verdict is still out,” said Lakhan.

The study was funded by the National Institute on Aging. Zaheed and Lakhan have disclosed no relevant financial relationships.

Finland election polls: Eurosceptics on course to make huge gains spelling trouble for EU

The 2021 Finnish municipal elections are due to be held on June 13, 2021. Finland’s municipal elections were originally scheduled to take place in April, but were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to one of the latest polls, the right-wing Finns Party could more than double its vote share compared to the party’s previous election performance.

The last municipal elections held in Finland took place in 2017.

The National Coalition Party won the most votes of any party, with 20.7 percent of the vote.

The Social Democratic Party won 19.4 percent of the vote, while the Centre Party of Finland gained 17.5 percent.

The Green League Party won 12.5 percent of the vote in the last elections, while the Finns Party won only 8.8 percent of the vote.

As per the Helsinki Times, Tuomo Turja, the research director at Taloustutkimus, told YLE: “The Finns Party’s challenge is not so much the other parties, but whether it can get its own supporters to the polling stations.”

The Social Democratic Party, headed by Finland’s Prime Minister, Sanna Marin, are set to get 17 percent of the vote according to the poll.

But the right-wing opposition party, the National Coalition, appeared to have the lead over all rivals in the poll.

The National Coalition could win as much as 19.6 percent of the vote according to the poll, almost a fifth of the vote.

According to the Helsinki Times, Elina Kestilä-Kekkonen, an associate professor of political science at Tampere University, told YLE: “It shows the European trend where confidence in the powers to be was exceptionally high during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Now that the epidemic is losing momentum, the SDP has to step before the public also in regards to other issues.”

Politico reported that a party ad campaign was recently pulled for discrimination, by suggesting immigrants can jump the public housing queue in Finland’s capital of Helsinki.

He said: “There is no influence in being quiet and nodding.”

After the UK’s exit from the EU in recent years, there have been growing rumblings of anti-EU sentiment elsewhere in Europe.

Anti-EU parties in places like Sweden and Estonia have gained momentum recently.

If momentum continues to grow, other countries could potentially opt to leave the EU behind in the future.

Sarah Drew Teases ‘Trouble’ For Cindy: Her Family Is Starting To ‘Fall Apart’

Author: Avery Thompson
This post originally appeared on Hollywood Life

Sarah Drew spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HL about Cindy’s feelings about her daughter in the wake of Kate’s return and more. Plus, she gives a morsel of information about where the heck Cindy is.

Cindy Turner’s seemingly perfect facade is crumbling around her on Cruel Summer. The rumors about Jeanette seeing Kate while she was being held captive are running rampant. As Jeanette is being questioned by the police, Cindy is clearly starting to doubt her own daughter. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Sarah Drew about Cindy’s motives. Is Cindy just concerned about her family’s reputation or the truth about what happened between Jeanette and Kate?

“I think it’s a combination of both,” Sarah told HollywoodLife. “One of the kinds of defining characteristics of her as a human is that she, her identity is wrapped up into the success of her family, especially her children, you know, it’s like, well, I spent my life raising these kids, and if they’re not successful, then I’m not successful. That’s kind of where her brain is, I think. I don’t know that she’s aware of that. I think that for her, she thinks she’s just loving her child. But I think what’s really happening underneath it is that she’s starting to see some cracks in this sort of tableau that she thought she created or helped create. The 1994 version of Jeanette is definitely who Cindy wants her daughter to be. And then when things start to crack, it’s like, quickly, let’s like plaster that crack up. God, that can’t be true. It doesn’t even matter if it’s true or not. We just have to plaster it up really quick before more people find out about it or hear about it. I think that gets her into a little bit of trouble.”

When Jeanette is brought in to be questioned about Kate, that’s when Cindy’s world begins to collapse. The police ask Jeanette about the necklace Kate claims is Jeanette’s, but Jeanette swears it’s not hers. Sarah breaks down what is going through Cindy’s mind.

“I think what’s happening in that moment is that the narrative that she had created about what her family was is starting to fall apart,” Sarah continued. “It’s a very big moment for Cindy when that necklace comes out. Because for her, [it’s like], are you lying? Are you? Are we not? Did you do? So it’s not only it’s the betrayal, it’s the potential of the betrayal of me. You’ve betrayed me because you’ve lied to me. But there’s also the potential of what does this mean for our family? If this is true, then how do I fix it? How can I possibly fix it? Something needs to be done. All of these things, I think are going through Cindy’s brain in this moment. Whether she really believes Jeanette’s been lying or not, it’s a crack. It’s a massive, gaping crack in what she thought was true about her life.”

In the year 1993, Cindy reveals to Jeanette that she and Kate’s mom used to be friends in high school. In Cindy’s eyes, Kate’s mom was the one always chasing after Cindy. All the guys had eyes for Cindy. Sarah noted that Cindy and Joy’s past, as well as what’s going with Kate and Jeanette, explores the idea of perception.

“There’s a lot to be told there, especially watching the scene between Joy and Kate in episode 2 and seeing kind of a mirror of that same conversation between Cindy and Jeanette in episode 3,” Sarah told HollywoodLife. “But in Joy’s version, Joy was the popular one and Cindy was always chasing after her, and all the men wanted Joy, not Cindy. In Cindy’s version, all the guys including Joy’s husband wanted Cindy, Joy was the one chasing after Cindy like a puppy dog. What I find so fascinating about this show is that it really does explore the idea of perception, right? In just watching those two scenes next to one another, you could think as an audience member: is Cindy lying? Is Joy lying? One of them might be lying. One of them might be in denial. Or maybe that was their experience of both those times for them. That’s the thing that I think is so fascinating is that we, as humans, can interact and receive the same situation differently than someone else. And for me, this is truth. And for you, it happened in a totally different way because of how it made you feel.”

In the 1995 timeline, Cindy is still nowhere to be seen. Sarah could only say this about Cindy’s whereabouts: “Yes, you will find out where she is. But that’s the only thing I’m allowed to say about that.” Cruel Summer airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on Freeform.

‘Good Trouble’ EP Breaks Down That Pregnancy Bombshell & That Epic Return In The Spring Finale

Author Avery Thompson
This post originally appeared on Hollywood Life

‘Good Trouble’ dropped major twists throughout its spring finale. HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with ‘Good Trouble’s EP about that game-changing pregnancy, [Spoiler]’s return, and what’s ahead.

Get ready because big changes are ahead on Good Trouble. The April 21 spring finale featured Isabella’s return, and she revealed that she’s pregnant with Gael’s baby. Just as Davia moved on with someone else, Dennis showed back up at the Coterie. Malika made a decision about her relationships, and Mariana was forced to reveal her relationship with Evan.

HollywoodLife got EXCLUSIVE scoop from executive producer Joanna Johnson about what Isabella’s pregnancy means for Gael and Callie’s future. It’s a “huge buzzkill,” Joanna said. She also discussed the impact of Dennis’ return on Davia, Malika’s future with Isaac, the aftermath of Mariana’s confession, and more. Read our Q&A below:

Beau Mirchoff
Callie and Jamie in the spring finale. (Freeform)

Isabella’s pregnancy reveal was definitely unexpected. How is Gael going to be navigating this impending arrival? 
Joanna Johnson: I think these young people on our show, they’re all responsible and all have dreams. They’re all trying to make things happen, but they don’t have great responsibilities personally. They don’t really have to answer to anyone else but themselves at this point in their life, so what interests me about this as well is what happens if you suddenly have to grow up very quickly and start considering your life choices and possibly being a parent? How does that affect your dreams and every choice that you make? How do you deal with something that’s so unplanned with someone that you don’t even know? So I thought that was all stuff that was interesting to me.

This reveal also came at a time when Callie and Gael were on the precipice of possibly getting back together or figuring out what their relationship is going to be. When he told her that Isabella was pregnant, it felt like a nail in the coffin. There was that look between them where it seemed like they’re now ships passing in the night. Do you think all hope for them is lost? Is there a possibility that these two could find a way to make this work? 
Joanna Johnson: It’s interesting because it sounds so unreal at first. It’s like, okay, so you’re not involved with this girl, right? So it’s not like there’s that. I don’t think you realize necessarily at first how complicated it might be. I think that it’s a hard thing to hear, but it doesn’t have to be a deal-breaker. I think that’s something that they have to explore in the next season. Does this mean that we just push our feelings down, or is there a way to do this? I think that’s kind of how we leave them, but it’s a huge buzzkill. He was finally going to tell her how we felt about her, and she was ready. Callie’s journey this season has been a little bit of her wondering: did I make a mistake when I chose Jamie? Was Gael the one I should have chosen? So it’s certainly not what you want to hear when you go up there thinking that you were going to fall back in bed together. It’s a real buzzkill. But does it have to be the end? That’s a question, and I think it’s an interesting question. Can you still date somebody who’s going to have a baby with someone else?

When Callie was making out with Tony, she said that her heart was with someone else. That’s obviously a weighted statement there. Is she talking about Gael, Jamie, or both? There still unresolved feelings with Jamie, too.
Joanna Johnson:  I think she’s trying to get over Jamie. She’s trying to deny those feelings. As long as you deny something, it just is going to persist. When you’re a young person, it’s not like you’re smart enough to say I think I’ll wait six months to a year before I get in a relationship again so I can really get over this. You just jump into the next thing, or you go backward. There are definitely unresolved feelings for him that Callie’s going to have to deal with, especially now that they’re going to be trying a murder case on opposite sides. It’s like the universe keeps throwing them back together, especially in adversarial ways.

Callie has made some bad decisions before, but I’m really scared for her now. Does she understand fully what she’s getting into with Kathleen? It seems so ominous. 
Joanna Johnson: Callie is somebody who is not afraid of doing something controversial, even though I would say she also has a very strong moral sense. She’s created a bond with Kathleen, and I think that she trusts Kathleen on some level, even though she’s not sure how much she can trust her. Like Callie says to Jamie, I find it hard to believe that Kathleen would be involved in something like this, in the disappearance of a witness and potentially the murder of a witness. I think she’s definitely willing to hear Kathleen out, which is why I think she sits down. Kathleen’s persuasive. She’s an interesting character, and I loved having Constance Zimmer on the show this season. It’s just been such a treat, and she just really plays that character so well.

Davia was shocked to see Dennis return. (Freeform)

The moment that made my jaw hit the floor was when Dennis returned. He’s back and Davia’s moved on. Is Dennis going to fight for her? 
Joanna Johnson: Well, it certainly seems like he’s going to have to. I mean, she loves him. Obviously, they have a real history, but he hurt her quite a bit. It’s hard because she’s met this new guy who’s really nice. She likes him a lot, but she’s not in love with him. What’s she going to do here with him back is really the question, and is Dennis going to have to work for it? She certainly seemed upset to see him.

Malika and Isaac reached a turning point in their relationship. She was trying to figure out what she wants, and she does make a decision. She said goodbye to Dyonte and wanted to stay with Isaac. She doesn’t want to lose him. Is it going to be so simple for her to get back together with Isaac? 
Joanna Johnson: It’s tough because, as her friends told her, you can’t unring that bell. I mean, once you’ve said this to him, that you have these feelings for someone else, is he going to be able to get past that? She feels like she’s polyamorous, but she also is willing to be monogamous to keep her relationship with Isaac. She’s willing to do that, but she’s already told Isaac how she feels. She’s hoping this grand gesture will convince him.

Cierra Ramirez
Mariana in the ‘Good Trouble’ spring finale. (Freeform)

Mariana finally told the girls that she’s in a relationship with Evan. She revealed that she’s dating him after they say they want to sue him and Spekulate. How much will this reveal complicate things, not only for her relationship with Evan but her career?
Joanna Johnson: Right now, the girls can’t seem to sell their app idea. They don’t have much of a career, but the real betrayal is the friendship. How will the girls really react? I mean, will they understand? The friendship that these girls have created over all these seasons is deep, and I love their relationship and their friendship. This was what Mariana has been dreading, having to tell them that she has been seeing Evan. It’s just like, I’m so worried about what’s going to happen to them. They’re such a favorite dynamic, at least for me, on the show. I just love them. I worry, and I know what’s going to happen. Is this going to break them up? That would be a huge breakup and devastating.

What can you say about Alice’s arc going forward? 
Joanna Johnson: Alice’s arc has always been to find her voice and stand up for herself. That has never been something that’s easy for her to do. She finally sort of stood up and thought she was standing there for all these people who were going to have her back and go with her. It’s just a real betrayal for someone who’s had such a hard time speaking her truth to have the consequences really rough. She’s feeling really betrayed. Did she make a terrible mistake? Has she lost an opportunity to get exposure for her career by speaking up? It’s got to break your heart to see Alice, who’s had such a hard time speaking up, finally do that and have no support.

Review: Stitchy in Tooki Trouble – Pretty But Painfully Average DKC-Inspired Platforming

A scarecrow is a creation built to deceive. A visual signifier of something greater. A simulacrum intended to impress, but when approached, the illusion shatters. Conveniently, Stitchy in Tooki Trouble is much the same. At first glance, it’s a rather attractive pillaging of Donkey Kong Country Returns, borrowing the visual style and Tiki-themed aesthetic for a rollicking 2D adventure in the tradition of Retro Studios’ greater apes. Then you start playing and it rather falls apart.

In this facsimile we have stalks of corn in place of bananas, Tooki statues in place of puzzle pieces, and stilted, uninteresting level design in place of magnificence. Stitchy can walk, double jump, and ground pound. That’s it. You use said ground pound to smash boxes open, but even when they’re stacked up atop one another you can’t simply smash through the lot in a satisfying bout of carnage, à la Crash Bandicoot; you’ve got to laboriously stomp them all individually, for some reason.

Yes, that probably seems like quite a minor thing to pick on, but what can we possibly say about this game? You’ve played it before, a million times, and probably on your phone. That’s not a slight against phone games, but the familiar structure (ranking each level out of three stars?! Why, such a thing has never—, etc), simplistic level design and ultimate lack of real excitement calls to mind the sort of thing you download for free in a promotion, play once, then sack off for more Candy Crush, or whatever the kids are playing on their phones, these days. *Shakes fist at the modern world*

Stitchy in Tooki Trouble isn’t a bad game by any means – well, actually, that depends on your perspective. Something that’s technically solid but doesn’t impress or surprise in any way is, we’d argue, a good deal less interesting than a truly awful experience. Stitchy falls right into the safest possible shape of a 2D platformer. Little challenge, little intrigue, but technically it’s an impressive-looking and feeling game, running at 60fps with bright graphics that really pop off the screen even in handheld mode. But in service to this — a platform game that’s less imaginative than Bloo Kid 2 — it doesn’t really amount to anything consequential.

Coming on the heels of Kaze and the Wild Masks (another game that takes inspiration from Donkey Kong Country) does Stitchy in Tooki Trouble even fewer favours. Despite some moments that are superficially interesting, such as an early level that sees you dealing with rolling waves creating a high obstacle to plan your advance around, the game doesn’t really do anything with its gimmicks, opting instead for banal, samey stage designs that basically don’t do anything to either thrill or offend. The world’s slowest, easiest mine cart stage. A level when a mechanical octopus attacks from the background with its tentacles. Then a languid, simplistic boss battle with said cephalopod.

And it’s… fine, we guess. It’s the kind of title that’s really, really difficult to review because there is nothing new to say about it. No enthusiasm. No real ideas. You play as a scarecrow; how about some sort of gimmick involving, you know, crows? Maybe a flutter jump using crows perched on your arms. Something. Anything!

But there is nothing. Get three items, get to the exit. Rinse, repeat. The juxtaposition of the Shin’en-esque level of graphical polish and the sheer repetition and uninspired slog of the gameplay never ceases to be jarring. As we said, it’s not bad. There’s just absolutely no reason to play it when so many other more interesting (and often cheaper) platformers are available. The controls are responsive (though “Jump” is on the ‘A’ button), the visuals are perfectly pleasant and the soundtrack gets the job done. It’s a meat-and-potatoes platform game through and through, but it fails to find a real identity or reason to exist.


Imagine Donkey Kong Country with none of the flair, none of the momentum, none of the secrets, none of the style and none of the grace. It doesn’t even have a funny face. There’s very little to get your teeth into here, though die-hard platform game fans may get some measure of satisfaction from its limited, low-risk take on the genre. We must reiterate – Stitchy in Tooki Trouble is not a badly-made game, it’s just a relentlessly unimpressive one that offers nothing new or even any kind of twist on an existing trope or mechanic. A sequel to Stitchy that perhaps saw fit to include something — anything — to make the game stand out, that could marry its impressive visuals with similarly good level design… now that would be worth a go. As it stands though, this scarecrow excels its most famed pop-culture analogue by lacking a brain, a heart and any courage to speak of.

NEW Nintendo Switch Pro leak spells trouble for existing Switch owners

There’s potentially some bad news for existing Nimtendo Switch owners.

One rumour that seems to gaining traction is that Nintendo will release an upgraded version of the Switch in 2021.

The new and improved Nintendo Switch console will reportedly support 4K visuals when docked.

Unfortunately, however, new reports suggest that the Nintendo Switch Pro could launch with exclusive games.

That’s according to an industry insider on Resetera, who said that third-party developers will be especially keen to take advantage of the new technology.

“There will be some select exclusives, especially from third-party partners,” reads a Resetera post. “May not be a big number of them, but I know of at least one.”

Previous Nintendo upgrades have done something similar. Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and Fire Emblem Warriors were both exclusive to the New Nintendo 3DS, for example.

It makes sense that third-party developers would want to take advantage of the additional horsepower.

If the Nintendo Switch Pro could run games like Call of Duty Warzone and Cold War, then it could be a big earner for Activision.

Indeed, it’s hard to imagine any publishers not wanting to port their games to the Switch console.

The Nintendo Switch has been the console of choice for indie game developers looking to make a profit.

Indie games sold on the Switch tend to perform better on the Nintendo handheld than any other platform (the ones with decent eShop visibility, at least).

Games like Wonder Boy and Oceanhorn have reportedly sold more units on Switch than every other platform combined.

Popular indie games like Stardew Valley have also proven extremely popular on Switch, although exact platform sales are yet to be revealed.

Rumoured Nintendo Switch Pro games include the likes of Breath of the Wild 2 and Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

“The fun of exploring while catching Pokemon and filling in a Pokedex has always been a core part of the Pokemon video game series,” reads the official description.

“Pokemon Legends: Arceus was developed with the desire to deliver an experience infused with new action and RPG elements that go beyond the framework established thus far, while honouring the core gameplay of past Pokemon titles.

“As Trainers explore the natural expanses in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, they’ll encounter Pokemon that call these grand vistas home. To catch wild Pokemon, players can study the Pokemon’s behaviours, sneak up to them, then throw Poke Balls.”
