Heat Tolerance and Occupational Heat Exposure Limits in Older Men with and without Type 2 Diabetes or Hypertension
Conclusion These findings demonstrate that T2D and HTN attenuate tolerance to uncompensable heat stress (32°C WBGT); however, these chronic diseases do not significantly impact thermal and cardiovascular strain, or the validity of ACIGH recommendations during moderate-intensity work.
In a country like Sudan with limited health resources and high prevalence of tropical diseases, obesity would complicate health challenges even more. However, the field of bariatric surgery in Sudan lacks research due to the fact that until 2018, there were no centers specialized in the surgical management of obesity and its comorbidities in the entire African Horn countries. This research is the first on patients underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) or gastric bypass (LGB) in Sudan.
ConclusionsThe decision rules achieved a high prognostic accuracy non-inferior to complex machine learning methods. They might help to identify patients at risk, who should receive special attention and intensified protection in ambulatory care.
ConclusionsOur results showed a high prevalence of MetS in the Belgian population. Identifying MetS high risk groups based on the socio-demographic and behavioral determinants is of major importance to establish preventive measures for cardiovascular diseases and diabetes of the Belgian population.Key messagesThe overall prevalence of MetS is almost 31% in the Belgian population.Age, education, overweight, obesity and chronic diseases are factors associated with the presence of MetS.
ConclusionsHigher LDH plasma levels are associated with a higher risk of dementia incidence in population at high cardiovascular risk.Key messagesHigher levels of LDH are associated with higher risk of dementia incidence among adult-elderly individuals with a high cardiovascular risk profile.The early detection of this biomarker could enable an early intervention and to delay, or perhaps even prevent, the onset of clinical symptoms.
In this study, we aimed to identify the prevalence, associated factors, and control status of T2DM in Bangladesh.MethodsThis cross-sectional survey was conducted in 15 randomly selected community-based clusters in Bangladesh. Around 1,000 adults aged ≥18 years from each cluster were selected. Face-to-face interviews, anthropometric measurement, biospecimen collection, and point of care blood test were performed. Individuals with Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) ≥126 mg/dl or previously diagnosed with T2DM by a qualified health provider were conside red T2DM cases. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to i...
ConclusionsPlant-based polyphenol-rich foods and beverages are major driver of metabolic benefits irrespectively of the overall adherence to the Mediterranean diet.Key messagesHigher intake of plant-based polyphenol-rich foods may contribute to better metabolic health.Plant-based polyphenol-rich foods not characteristics of the Mediterranean diet could be underrated among individuals living in the Mediterranean area.
ConclusionsThe SCUBY project presents a comprehensive framework to guide the evaluation of scale-up of complex interventions. We describe three contextualised roadmaps, for Belgium, Slovenia and Cambodia, each adopting their own (horizontal/diversification/vertical) scale-up strategy(ies) as a basis to monitor adaptations through a co-creation process. This study protocol will be a guide for other scale-up interventions making use of knowledge translation and co-creation activities.Key messagesProcess evaluation is needed to keep track of complex interventions including scale up.The SCUBY project developed an evaluation pl...

CONCLUSION: The AzoresDiab model exhibited excellent discrimination of patients with and without type 2 diabetes. The use of predictive risk models will enable the early implementation of disease prevention programs in medium- and high-risk individuals, and public health policies to prevent the onset of the disease in these populations.PMID:34665966 | DOI:10.22605/RRH5967
