  title={The Role of Thiamin in High Calorie Malnutrition},
  author={Derrick Lonsdale},
Objective: A number of disorders have become virtual epidemics in the modern era, including Attention Deficit (ADD), with or without hyperactivity, recurrent ear infections, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and obesity. All have male gender preponderance and obesity has been linked to cognitive dysfunction.

Thiamine Level in Type I and Type II Diabetes Mellitus Patients: A Comparative Study Focusing on Hematological and Biochemical Evaluations
Evaluating various biochemical parameters and serum thiamine levels in type I and type II diabetic patients and compare them with a healthy control group revealed that FBS, RBS, HbA1c, triglyceride, and total cholesterol levels were significantly higher in both type Iand type II diabetes patients compared to controls.

An increase of dietary carbohydrate intake from 55% to 65% and 75%, respectively, of total caloric intake for four days per period at isocaloric conditions causes a decrease of plasma and urine levels of thiamine without affecting enzyme activities.
Sudden infant death syndrome requires genetic predisposition, some form of stress and marginal malnutrition.
The third factor necessary for the event is inefficient oxidation in brain cells induced most commonly by marginal malnutrition in pregnancy or after birth.
Habitual nutrient intake in HIV-infected youth and associations with HIV-related factors.
In HIV(+) subjects not on antiretroviral therapy, HIV-1 RNA levels were negatively correlated with protein intake and poorer dietary intake compared to controls, and intake of some nutrients was associated with important HIV-related factors.
GERD and obesity: is the autonomic nervous system the missing link?
It is hypothesized that the potential imbalance in sympathovagal stimulation to the LES is a key contributing factor to the increased prevalence of GERD symptoms in obese individuals.
