Prevalence of obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and risk of cardiovascular disease in a psychiatric inpatient sample: results of the Metabolism in Psychiatry (MiP) Study.

Prevalence of obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and risk of cardiovascular disease in a psychiatric inpatient sample: results of the Metabolism in Psychiatry (MiP) Study. Eur Arch Psychiatry Clin Neurosci. 2019 Jul 13;: Authors: Barton BB, Zagler A, Engl K, Rihs L, Musil R Abstract The information on prevalence of obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome (MetS) and cardiovascular risk (CVR) and on sociodemographic variables available in patients with psychiatric diseases about to be treated with weight gain-associated medication (e.g., clozapine, mirtazapine, quetiapine) is limited. In a naturalistic study, psychiatric inpatients (age: 18-75) of all F diagnoses according to ICD-10, who were about to be treated with weight gain-associated medication, were included. Demographic variables were assessed as well as biological parameters to calculate the Body Mass Index (BMI), MetS, diabetes and CVR. A total of 163 inpatients were included (60.1% male; mean age: 39.8 (± 15.1, 18-75 years). The three most common disorders were depression (46.0%), bipolar disorder (20.9%) and drug addiction (20.2%). The three most common pharmacotherapeutic agents prescribed were quetiapine (29.4%), mirtazapine (20.9%) and risperidone (12.9%). Of the included inpatients 30.1% were overweight, 17.2% obese, and 26.9% and 22.4% fulfilled the criteria for a MetS according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the National Expert Panel on Detection, Ev...

Here, a transient memristor with the MgO thin film as resistive dielectric material and the Ni as electrode material is reported. The memristor shows reversible and nonvolatile bipolar resistive switching performance, narrow distribution of low resistance state (LRS) and high resistance state (HRS), uniform switching voltages and stable retention at room temperature. It is indicated...

However, the initiating events underpinning these dysfunctions are still unclear. Here, we address the hypothesis that BPA interferes with the highly evolutionary conserved process of mitochondrial cholesterol transport, a crucial step in steroid hormone biosynthesis, by using the model organism C. elegans. We observed that embryonic lethalit...

FaesAbstractDisease mapping is a scientific field that aims to understand and predict disease risk based on counts of observed cases within small regions of a study area of interest. Hierarchical model-based approaches that borrow information from neighbouring areas via conditional autoregressive (CAR) random effects on the local disease rates have gained a lot of popularity, thanks to the readily implemented Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. Nowadays, many software implementations to model r...

Conclusions: The results evidenced the role of the domiciliary situation among outcomes at the national level, with lower prevalence of general and abdominal obesity in men living in rural areas. However, higher prevalences were found among women, especially for abdominal obesity.

This study aimed to identify different groups of pregnant women based on their behavioral, psychosocial and socio-economic characteristics and their pregnancy outcomes.In total, 2455 women who were 12 weeks pregnant completed a questionnaire on smoking behavior, health behaviors and psychosocial and socio-economic characteristics. Neonatal and maternal outcomes were extracted from the Dutch perinatal registration. Subgroups were identified with latent class analysis and adverse pregnancy outcomes were compared between subgroups with logistic regression.Women were classified into four latent classes. Two classes represent...
