The burden of diabetes and hyperglycemia in Brazil and its states: findings from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015

Conclusion: Diabetes and chronic kidney disease due to diabetes, as well as high fasting plasma glucose in general, currently constitute a major and growing public health problem in Brazil. Actions to date for their prevention and control have been slow considering the magnitude of this burden.RESUMO: Introdu ção e objetivo: O projeto Global Burden of Disease (GBD) 2015 estendeu suas análises para incluir unidades federativas brasileiras de maneira separada. Aproveitamos os avanços metodológicos do GBD para descrever a carga atual de diabetes e hiperglicemia no Brasil. Métodos: Utilizando os mé todos padrão GBD 2015, analisamos a carga de diabetes, de doença renal crônica por diabetes e de glicemia de jejum elevada no Brasil e seus estados. Resultados: A taxa padronizada por idade de anos de vida ajustados por morte ou incapacidade (DALYs) perdidos devido à glicemia de jejum elevadaf oi de 2448,85 (95% IU 2165,96-2778,69)/100000 para homens e 1863,90 (95% IU 1648,18-2123,47)/100.000 para as mulheres em 2015. Esta taxa foi mais do que o dobro em estados com maior carga, quase sempre no Nordeste e Norte, em comparação com aqueles com as taxas mais baixas. A taxa bruta de DALYs d evido à glicose de jejum elevada aumentou 35% desde 1990, enquanto que a dos DALYs devido a todas as doenças não transmissíveis aumentou apenas 12,7% e a taxa dos DALYs devido a todas as...

AbstractAs the most well-known and popular video-sharing platform around the world, YouTube is an influential tool for the dissemination of health-related information. In addition, considering the increase in obtaining information from internet-based sources in pandemic conditions, YouTube has become more important in the presentation of information related to COVID-19. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate videos related to COVID-19 vaccination in rheumatic diseases (RD) on YouTube. In this descriptive study, 334 video URLs listed with six search terms were recorded (26 July 2021). Three quality groups (high, i...

This study was divided in two phases: CALERIE-1 and CALERIE-2. CALERIE-1 study was performed to assess the possible effects induced by a reduction of 10-30% of caloric intake on body composition parameters and lipid profile after 6 and 12 months in a population of middle-aged non-obese subjects. CALERIE-1 results showed an improvement in lipid and glycemic profile and a reduction in body weight (BW) and fat mass. CALERIE-2 was the largest multi-center study on CRD. A total of 220 subjects were enrolled randomly with a 2:1 allocation into two subgroups: 145 in the CRD group and 75 in the ad libitum group. The CRD gro...

In conclusion, the study indicates that HBOT may induce significant senolytic effects that include significantly increasing telomere length and clearance of senescent cells in the aging populations. Data on the Prevalence of Liver Fibrosis in Middle Age https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/11/data-on-the-prevalence-of-liver-fibrosis-in-middle-age/ Fibrosis is a consequence of age-related disarray in tissue maintenance processes, leading to the deposition of scar-like collagen that disrupts tissue structure and function. It is an ultimately fatal issue for which there are only poor treatment options a...
