Burnout Syndrome, Mental Splitting and Depression in Female Health Care Professionals.
This study intends examination of relationships between burnout syndrome, depression, and Kernberg's concept of splitting. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this present study, we assessed 132 female health care professionals working with a population of diabetic patients utilizing Burnout Measure (BM) Splitting Index (SI), Beck Depression Inventory II (BDI-II), and additional psychometric instruments, the Toronto Alexithymia Scale and the Trauma Symptoms Checklist. RESULTS The study results indicated significant Spearman correlations between burnout syndrome as measured by BM and depression (BDI-II) (R=0.62, P
Physical activity (PA) is an important modifiable risk factor in the prevention of non- communicable diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, several types of cancer and depression [1,2]. Several methods exist for assessing PA and sedentary behaviour (SB) . Self-reported measures (e.g. questionnaires) have been widely used in epidemiological studies because of their low cost and low burden to participants . Nevertheless, their reliability and validity is limited by recall bias or social desirability [5,6].
People with restless legs syndrome have nearly three times the risk of suicide or self-harm, even if they didn't have underlying conditions like depression, diabetes and insomnia, according to a new study.
This study aimed to identify demographic and clinical predictors of response to Tele-CBT among 79 patients who received Tele-CBT in 3 previous studies. Listwise deletion was applied, after which 58 patients were included in a multivariate linear regression adjusted for age, sex and education status, to evaluate patient rurality index (urban or nonurban), and baseline binge eating, emotional eating and depression symptoms, as predictors of tele-CBT response.ResultsThe predictors explained 31% of the observed variance [R2=0.312, F(4,57)=3.238, p

Demin, Allan V. Kalueff, Cai SongAbstractNeuroinflammation and metabolic deficits contribute to the etiology of human affective disorders, such as anxiety and depression. The zebrafish (Danio rerio) has recently emerged as a powerful new model organism in CNS disease modeling. Here, we exposed zebrafish to 2% glucose and 10% cholesterol for 19 days to experimentally induce type 2 diabetes (DM) and to assess stress responses, microglia,...
To systematically assess the association between depression and risk of gestational diabetes by a meta-analysis of cohort studies.
CONCLUSIONS: Depression is associated with a proinflammatory state during pregnancy. These associations are mediated by early pregnancy BMI, and depressive symptoms during pregnancy aggravate the inflammation related to obesity. PMID: 31439060 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
There’s an unfortunate confusion that exists when talking about mass shootings in America. This confusion is reinforced by politicians and the media, each pushing their own agendas and biases. Some have erroneously claimed it’s a mental illness issue. I’m not being pedantic when I say we should not confuse mental illness with other, related concerns, such as psychological distress. The two are very different things. A person can be under psychological distress and still not have a mental illness. Here’s why the distinction is important and why sloppy reporting by both journalists and law enforcement...
ConclusionsThe algorithm produces plausible analyses of medication errors in older people, pointing to established areas of therapeutic deficiencies. Though individual recommendations exist, the algorithm cannot employ the full potential of FORTA as important details (e.g., blood pressure values, pain intensity) are not (yet) included. However, it seems capable of detecting medication problems in large cohorts —FORTA-EPI (Epidemiological) is designed to support epidemiological analyses, e.g., on comparisons of large cohorts, interventional impact, or longitudinal trends.
ConclusionsNontraditional factors, such as cultural practices and emotional functioning, are also important predictors of diabetes risk and should be considered when culturally tailoring diabetes prevention programs.RésuméObjectifsLes immigrants sud-asiatiques sont généralement en bonne santé à leur arrivée, mais développent rapidement le diabète après leur immigration. On ignore si des facteurs culturels et psychosociaux contribuent au risque de diabète dans ce groupe ethnique minoritaire. Les modèles de prédiction actuels portent p...
CONCLUSIONS: Gout is common among older people in residential care but may be under-recognised. Holistic management of gout is needed in this population, with careful consideration of chronic comorbidities and treatments. PMID: 31433129 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
