Experts have identified a new disease in which a person cannot live without coffee
Although this pathology is quite rare, to describe, for example, it can be with the incident, which happened to 11-year-old boy, says MedicalXpress.
His parents purely by chance, we conducted an experiment double-blind placebo — it’s an experiment when that is the drugs are given a pacifier, do not know not only the patient but also the doctor.
The boy’s parents suffering from dyskinesia, know that their kids need to drink at least two cups of strong espresso. But one day they accidentally bought decaf coffee and didn’t even notice it. And a week them the boy suffered painful muscle spasms, before my parents notice what they bought. After the resumption of drinking regular coffee cramps the boy passed.
This well-known drink allows the boy with a rare genetic muscle disorder to control muscle spasms. The doctors know about it long ago. However, no proof that caffeine allows you to relieve muscle spasms in this disease, was not.
“This is one of those amazing cases happy accidents that sometimes happen in the history of medicine,” said Emmanuel Flamand-Roze, doctor hospital Pitie-Salpetriere in Paris and lead author of the study of psoriasis. According to him, the parents accidentally conducted an experiment double-blind placebo — the strictest possible tests to see whether the treatment.
This disease affects one out of several million. When the disease “hand, foot, face, muscle randomly move,” explains Flamand-Roze. That is why a child can’t ride a bike, to walk himself home from school, and even just writing with a pencil. Spasm can cover the patient at any time. The disease is associated with a defect of the gene ADCY5, and worst of all, from the disease there is no cure.
