Prevalence of vitamin d deficiency in urban south indians with different grades of glucose tolerance.

PREVALENCE OF VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY IN URBAN SOUTH INDIANS WITH DIFFERENT GRADES OF GLUCOSE TOLERANCE. Br J Nutr. 2020 Mar 26;:1-24 Authors: Jayashri R, Venkatesan U, Shanthi Rani CS, Deepa M, Anjana RM, Mohan V, Pradeepa R Abstract The present study assessed the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in an urban south Indian population in individuals with different grades of glucose tolerance.A total of 1,500 individuals [900 normal glucose tolerance(NGT), 300 prediabetes and 300 with type 2 diabetes mellitus(T2DM)] who were not on vitamin D supplementation were randomly selected from the Chennai Urban Rural Epidemiological Study(CURES) follow-up study. Anthropometric, clinical examination and biochemical investigations (25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D], insulin, glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and serum lipids) were measured. Vitamin D deficiency was defined as serum 25(OH)D

Abstract Fast-track or enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) pathways are evidence-based perioperative guides that promote stress reduction and earlier return to function following surgery. They emphasize preoperative counseling, nutrition optimization, analgesia standardization, fluid and electrolyte balance, minimally invasive approaches, and early ambulation. Although ERAS pathways were implemented in 2016 on a 43-bed postoperative colorectal medical-surgical unit, inpatient stays remained beyond the projected two-day length of stay (LOS). A quality improvement team was formed and an eight-week pilot project w...

This study assessed the feasibility and effectiveness of WCIs for increasing physical activity in breast cancer survivors; secondary measures included changes in dietary habits, weight, and QOL. METHODS: 20 obese or overweight breast cancer survivors who recently completed active breast cancer treatment were recruited into a single-arm, 12-week WCI pilot feasibility study. The intervention was comprised of one in-person wellness coaching visit followed by four telephone calls over 12 weeks and 12 weekly emails containing wellness recommendations. FINDINGS: Significant improvements from pre- to postintervention we...

Authors: Ahn SH, Seo DH, Cho Y, Jung M, Kim SH, Hong S Abstract BACKGROUND: Changes in muscle mass and strength can be caused by multiple endocrine factors including thyroid dysfunction. However, the relation between thyroid function and muscle strength in euthyroid individuals is not clear. In the present study, we investigated the relationship between thyroid function and hand grip strength (HGS) in euthyroid Koreans, especially according to sex and age. METHODS: This was a population-based, cross-sectional study from the 6th Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys including 2,894 Koreans (1,4...
