  The present study comprises the relationship among body weight, hemoglobin and hematocrit during follicular and luteal phases in young menstruating women. Hemoglobin concentration, hematocrit and body weight were measured in 25 healthy normal menstruating women, over 2-3 consecutive menstrual cycles. Hemoglobin concentrations were significantly (p<0.05) lower in follicular phase than in the luteal phase. Hematocrit and body weight did not show any statistically significant differences in both the phases of menstrual cycle. In addition Basal Body Temperature (BBT) showed a significant rise during the luteal phase of the cycles.

  This study is done to find out the effects of atenolol on plasma electrolytes sodium, potassium, calcium and on serum enzymes, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) of common rabbits Oryctolagus cuniculus following the administration of an oral daily dose of 0.6 mg atenolol for 27 days. Observations showed a non-significant rise in sodium concentration, a significant elevation and ultimate fall of potassium concentration and reduction of calcium levels significantly to half of the normal values. These findings suggest the diuretic action of drug; possibly the prolonged use cause the renal dysfunction. Long-term treatment of hypertension by atenolol may impair the hepatic function indicated by significant very low and high levels of serum AST and ALT, respectively.

  Background and Objective: Over the past several decades, an increase in the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) has coincided with rising rates of obesity. This study was conducted to evaluate the association between SSBs consumption and Body Mass Index (BMI) among female university students. Materials and Methods: An online structured survey form was used to collect the data on SSBs consumption and BMI in Saudi Arabia. Results: One way ANOVA found significant differences in mean BMI across various consumption frequencies of SSBs (p<0.001). An increased risk of being obese (high BMI: 30 or more) was associated with increased total consumption and consumption frequency of SSBs (p<0.05). Conclusion: This study found that mean BMI was positively associated with SSBs consumption. These significant results indicate that consumption of SSBs increases the risk of obesity.
