Heart Healthy Diet: Low Fat, Low Cholesterol, Low Sodium Diet Purpose of the diet Control and / or decrease levels of cholesterol in your blood. Control and / or decrease blood pressure and / or fluid retention. Cholesterol This fat-like substance is necessary for good health. However, high levels in the blood can cause heart and blood vessel diseases. Our bodies make cholesterol. We also get it from eating foods from animals (meats, milk, eggs, cheese, butter). Foods from plants (fruits, vegetables, grains) do not contain cholesterol. Saturated fats These fats are generally solid at room temperature. They tend to increase blood cholesterol levels. Trans fatty acids These are fats that can raise cholesterol levels like saturated fat does. Trans fats are usually listed as partially hydrogenated oils. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats These fats are generally liquid at room temperature. Some can lower blood cholesterol levels.

Page 2 How can I lower my blood cholesterol level? Decrease total fat intake, especially saturated and trans fats. Saturated fats are mainly in animal foods. Trans fats come mostly from partially hydrogenated plant oils. Foods that may contain trans fats include store bought baked goods, non-dairy whipped toppings, cream substitutes, some crackers and cookies, and many deep fried foods. To check for trans fats in a food, look for any oil that is “partially hydrogenated” in the ingredients on food labels. If a food has less than half a gram of trans fat per serving, the food manufacturer can list “zero grams of trans fat” on the food label, so it is best to check the ingredients for partially hydrogenated oils. Limit high cholesterol foods. Egg yolks, fatty meats, organ meats, butter, whole milk and other high fat dairy products are high cholesterol foods. Substitute monounsaturated fat or polyunsaturated fat for saturated fat in your diet. Monounsaturated fats include olive oil, peanut oil and canola oil. Safflower, corn and sunflower oils, and most margarines and salad dressings are examples of polyunsaturated fats. Also, fish has a higher content of polyunsaturated fat than red meat. A special note on fish: Many fish are low fat. Some fish that have a higher fat content such as salmon are high in a kind of fat called omega 3 fatty acids. This type of fat has been shown to be very heart healthy. It is recommended to eat fish three times a week for this reason. One caution: consider how you prepare it so that you don’t add large amounts of undesired fats. Baking, broiling, grilling or poaching fish is best. What is sodium? Sodium is a mineral that is necessary for good health and is present in all foods. Most people eat more sodium than they need. If the body cannot get rid of the extra sodium, fluid builds up. Extra fluid increases the work of the heart and kidneys, and may increase blood pressure. Eating less sodium may help control these problems. You will sometimes see the term sodium abbreviated "Na", as in NaCl (Sodium Chloride), which is table salt. The recommended sodium intake per day for most people is no more than 2300 milligrams (mg). For anyone who has high blood pressure, is over 50, or is African American, the sodium intake is 1,500 mg. Page 3 Sodium Guidelines To choose foods that are healthier for you, look for these labels: Sodium-free – less than 5 milligrams of sodium per serving Very low-sodium – 35 milligrams or less per serving Low-sodium – 140 milligrams or less per serving Reduced sodium – usual sodium level is reduced by 25 percent Unsalted, no salt added or without added salt – made without the salt, but still has the sodium that's a natural part of the food Know Your Salt When you are on a No Salt Added diet, even a small amount of salt has a lot of sodium in it. Amount of Sodium in Salt ¼ teaspoon salt 600 milligrams of sodium ½ teaspoon salt 1,200 milligrams of sodium ¾ teaspoon salt 1,800 milligrams of sodium 1 teaspoon salt 2,300 milligrams of sodium 1 teaspoon baking soda 1,000 milligrams of sodium How can I limit sodium?
Fit and Fat? Yes, you can be fit and overweight within reason. The trick is to control your weight so you can be physically active. There are plenty of people who get regular physical activity, yet they are overweight. A recent study showed people who are fit and carrying extra pounds may not be at increased risk of developing or dying from heart disease or cancer when compared to people of healthy weight.1 Likewise, thin people are not necessarily healthy if they carry excess belly fat. What matters more than weight is the amount and type of body fat. Studies show that fat around the midsection or belly fat may be more harmful than fat elsewhere on the body.2 Why? Belly or visceral fat embedded into muscles and around vital organs can have a metabolic impact compared to subcutaneous fat, which is the type of fat that simply sits beneath the skin like on your hips. Abdominal fat is also a predictor of risk for obesity-related diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease. Generally ladies should strive for a waist circumference below 35 inches and men, 40 inches according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Eat Whatever You Want As Long You Exercise It might sound logical that if you work out, you can eat whatever you want, but this is usually not the most effective way to lose weight. Believe it or not, it is easier not to eat the chocolate cake than it is to burn it off. One slice of decadent chocolate cake could contain as many as 500 calories and require up to five miles of jogging to burn it off. Losing weight occurs when you create a calorie deficit either by eating fewer calories, burning calories through exercise or a combination of both. Diet plans that include cutting calories and regular physical activity tend to be the most successful and sustainable. Further, the quality of the food you consume and regular physical activity are important to overall health, regardless of weight. So the next time you want to indulge in a calorie-rich food or beverage, enjoy a smaller portion and account for it in your daily calorie budget. Health Only Improves When You Lose Lots of Weight Seeking to reach your healthy weight is an excellent goal in support of good health. However, you may benefit from losing as little as 5-10 percent of your body weight. Studies show that even small amounts of weight loss may improve blood cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, blood pressure and lower risk for heart disease. Celebrate small victories on your journey toward a healthier weight. The payoff – people who lose weight slowly are more likely to keep it off. Skipping Breakfast Slashes Calories Studies show that breakfast eaters have healthier weights compared to breakfast skippers. Skipping breakfast or any meal usually results in overeating later in the day. Enjoying a nutritious meal in the morning sets the stage for the day. A breakfast that contains protein and fiber may keep blood sugar levels stable and hunger at bay until lunchtime. Your blood sugar and energy levels are low when you wake up in the morning. To get your body moving and energized after a long night’s rest, you need fuel in the form of a healthy breakfast. Another benefit, people who eat breakfast tend to have healthier diets overall, ones that are higher in nutrients. Breakfast may help you keep the weight off. We have learned from successful losers, the National Weight Control Registry of those who have lost weight and kept it off, make eating breakfast a daily habit. Reconsider where you slash calories in your diet and keep in mind you may save calories if you start your day the healthy way with a nutritious and delicious breakfast.

Why is this clinical study being done? 35% of cats will ultimately develop chronic kidney disease which is the leading cause of death in older cats. There are no current therapeutic options for cats with CKD other than renal transplantation, of which is not typically an option for most owners. Most of our efforts aim at improving uremic signs with food, dietary supplements, and antacids, but there are no current methods for improving the function of the kidney directly. Stem cells are thought to improve, repair, and aid in the growth of damaged tissue through various mechanisms. Since renal failure is so common in cats and renal cell death is the ultimate result, improving the health and environment of the cells that remain could improve the overall function of the kidneys and ultimately improve the survival times and quality of life in these patients. The aim is to use the cat’s own adipose derived stem cells to improve renal function directly. Stem cells can be delivered in various ways and research has shown that intravenous injection results in first pass delivery of the stem cells to be highest in the pulmonary capillary beds. If the cells are directly delivered into the renal artery then the first capillary bed to uptake the stem cells are the glomeruli and tubular vascular endothelial cells of the nephron, resulting in more dramatic uptake and regenerative capabilities. Study Aims 1) to perform a pilot study on 6 cats with IRIS stage III CKD using intra‐arterial autologous MSC delivery into the renal artery to assess for short term safety and efficacy. 2) if phase 1 proves safe and effective over a 3 month period then the second aim is to investigate and compare the effect of autologous MSC injected via either the renal artery or cephalic (or saphenous) vein on CKD progression in a placebo controlled study (an additional 24 cats). The authors hypothesize that MSC therapy coupled with conventional therapy will 1) improve renal function based on GFR studies, 2) reduce the mortality from renal failure, 3) reduce all cause mortality, and 4) improve quality of life compared with cats treated only by conventional therapy. In addition, MSC therapy delivered via renal arterial injection prolongs survival compared with cats receiving MSC through peripheral venous injection. Financial Benefits to Participate in This Study for Cats Who Qualify (Phase I) Free stem cell harvesting, isolation, and intra‐arterial injection Free follow‐up for 3 years (on an every 3 months basis) after stem cell delivery including all examinations, blood work, urinalysis, urine cultures, blood pressures, radiographs, ultrasounds, and GFR studies. Each cat in Phase I will have approximately $14,000 of treatment and diagnostics covered over this 3 year period. ...
Stem cell therapy offers potential in the regeneration of craniofacial bone defects; however, it has not been studied clinically. Tissue repair cells (TRCs) isolated from bone marrow represent a mixed stem and progenitor population enriched in CD90- and CD14-positive cells. In this phase I/II, randomized, controlled feasibility trial, we investigated TRC cell therapy to reconstruct localized craniofacial bone defects. Twenty-four patients requiring localized reconstruction of jawbone defects participated in this longitudinal trial. For regenerative therapy, patients were randomized to receive either guided bone regeneration (GBR) or TRC transplantation. At 6 or 12 weeks following treatment, clinical and radiographic assessments of bone repair were performed. Bone biopsies were harvested and underwent quantitative micro-computed tomographic (µCT) and bone histomorphometric analyses. Oral implants were installed, subsequently restored, and functionally loaded with tooth restorations. Reconstructed sites were assessed for 1 year following therapy. No study-related, serious adverse events were reported. Following therapy, clinical, radiographic, tomographic, and histological measures demonstrated that TRC therapy accelerated alveolar bone regeneration compared to GBR therapy. Additionally, TRC treatment significantly reduced the need for secondary bone grafting at the time of oral implant placement with a fivefold decrease in implant bony dehiscence exposure (residual bone defects) as compared to GBR-treated sites (p < 0.01). Transplantation of TRCs for treatment of alveolar bone defects appears safe and accelerates bone regeneration, enabling jawbone reconstruction with oral implants. The results from this trial support expanded studies of TRC therapy in the treatment of craniofacial deformities (ClinicalTrials.gov number CT00755911). Key words: Bone regeneration;...
