Does FMI Correlate Better than BMI with the Occurrence of Metabolic Changes in Obese Patients? Study Based on 2007 Consecutive Mexican Patients

ConclusionsThere were no significant differences between the BMI and the FMI for predicting the degree of obesity. Likewise, there were no significant differences between them for the prediction of metabolic alterations.

We examined the association between baseline PH composite and cancer mortality adjusted for potential confounders using Cox regression. A total of 1191 cancer deaths were observed over the 10-year observation period, with the majority being lung (26.87%) and gastrointestinal (21.49%) cancers. Even after controlling for sociodemographics, health behaviors, baseline comorbidity score, and medications, participants with No PA and High RPP had 71% greater risk of cancer mortality when compared to participants with PA and Low RPP (adjusted HR: 1.71, 95% CI: 1.42–2.06). These associations persisted after examining BMI, smo...

Publication date: Available online 15 January 2020Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Tobore Onojighofia ToboreAbstractAlcohol use is known to result in disinhibition. However, evidence suggests that alcohol consumption could also result in inhibition. Several hypotheses have been proposed for this confounding alcohol-induced behavior, but none explains it adequately at the level of the brain. In this paper, oxidative stress is put forth as the underlying cause of alcohol toxicity and behavioral impairments. The implications of this understanding and how oxidative stress influences behavior in obesity, diabet...

CONCLUSION: The predominance of severe food insecurity occurred in overweight and obese mothers with inadequate dietary diversity. This probably happened because of a lack of access to food to adequately meet the nutritional needs of each member of the family. The results suggest that health promotion with actions aimed at food security is a priority within an integral action plan for natural disasters. PMID: 31937106 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionThis study did not show a clinically important increase in PaCO2 associated with higher SpO2 values in this specific population of obese patients after CABG. Partial pressure of carbon dioxide increased with liberal oxygen administration in almost half of the patients, but no predictive factor was identified.Trial (NCT02917668); registered 25 September, 2016.
