Physical activity and skeletal health in adults

Publication date: Available online 20 November 2019Source: The Lancet Diabetes &EndocrinologyAuthor(s): Jane A Cauley, Lora GiangregorioSummaryThe purpose of this Review is to examine the associations between physical activity and skeletal health, with an emphasis on observational studies with fracture outcomes and randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of physical activity interventions in adults older than 40 years. In general, increased physical activity—primarily leisure time activity or moderate or vigorous physical activity—is associated with a 1–40% lower risk of hip and all fractures. The primary limitation of these studies relates to health status; healthy people are more likely to exercise and less likely to fracture. Although there is no sufficiently powered RCT of exercise with a fracture outcome, there is evidence that some types of exercise prevent falls and bone loss, and meta-analyses support the anti-fracture effectiveness of exercise. RCTs and meta-analyses suggest that programmes combining impact exercise with moderate or high-intensity progressive resistance exercise might maintain or improve bone mass and prevent fractures, and that functional strength and balance training prevents falls.

Purpose of review Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a pervasive and growing health concern that has a significant impact on mortality and morbidity, putting stress on global healthcare systems. CKD affects ∼14% of general populations and ∼36% of high-risk populations and is projected to rise in the coming decade due to increasing rates of diabetes and hypertension. Recent findings Screen, triage, and treat programs aim to detect early stage disease with the intention of promoting medical and lifestyle interventions in line with a patient's level of risk that may slow disease progression and reduce morbidity and ...

Purpose of review Recently in October 2019 a Global Consensus Position on the use of Testosterone Therapy for Women was published. The use of testosterone and other agents for female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is an important topic for the urologist focusing on sexual health. This review describes the known causes for FSD, and discusses the role of androgens in this disorder, the evidence for using testosterone treatment, and other current and emerging therapies. Recent findings A recent meta-analysis, published in The Lancet Diabetes &Endocrinology evaluated a total of 36 randomized control trials spanning 1990&nda...

The objective of this study was to compare the experience and distribution of tooth loss in people with and without diabetes. METHODS: The authors conducted a comparative cross-sectional study of patients at a public university. Analysis included medical records of those treated from 2013 through 2017. The dependent and main independent variables were the number of missing teeth and a diagnosis of diabetes, respectively. As covariables, the authors analyzed the sociodemographic and socioeconomic characteristics, as well as the general and oral health status of patients. A multivariate model based on negative binomial r...
