Functional dependence among older adults: a cross-sectional study with a rural population of southern Brazil.

CONCLUSION: Older adults in rural areas have a high prevalence of functional dependence. Knowledge of functional dependence and associated factors in rural populations is necessary for the planning and developing actions, especially in the routine of primary care, which promote health and prevent or postpone the decline in functional capacity.

Authors: Sabet Sarvestani F, Azarpira N Abstract Heart and cerebral infarctions, as two important ischemic diseases, lead to the death of tissues due to inadequate blood supply and high mortality worldwide. These statuses are started via blockage of vessels and depletion of oxygen and nutrients which affected these areas. After reperfusion and restoration of oxygen supply, more severe injury was mediated by multifaceted cascades of inflammation and oxidative stress. microRNAs (miRNAs) as the regulator of biological and pathological pathways can adjust these conditions by interaction with their targets. Also, miRNAs...

Authors: Siamashvili M, Davis S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Bromocriptine mesylate quick release (QR) is a dopamine D2 receptor agonist and is the only oral, primarily centrally acting drug that can be used for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes. AREAS COVERED: The authors describe current recommendations on the use of bromocriptine mesylate QR. Major efficacy and safety parameters of the late phase trials, including The Cycloset Safety Trial, have been identified and presented. EXPERT OPINION: Efficacy of bromocriptine mesylate QR monotherapy appears to be low but is compensated by favorable safety pr...

AbstractIntroduction and hypothesisAlthough medical comorbidities are widely recognized to be associated with erectile dysfunction, less research has been done on their association with female sexual dysfunction (FSD). The purpose of this study was to assess whether FSD is associated with comorbidities; we hypothesized that there is an association.MethodsThis is a secondary analysis of the third National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal-3), a prospective stratified probability sample of individuals aged 16 –74. We assessed for association between sexual function scores and heart attack, heart disease...

As a primary care doctor, I see a lot of women dealing with the inconvenience, discomfort, and embarrassment of urinary incontinence (unintended leaking of urine).

Urinary incontinence can negatively affect physical and emotional well-being. For example, women may avoid going out because they’re worried about havi...
