The prevalence and multilevel analysis of minimum dietary diversity intake and its determinants among 6-23  months old infants in The Gambia: further analysis of the Gambian demographic and health survey data
CONCLUSION: The World Health Organization dietary evaluation tool suggests that the MDD value be extremely low, even though it might be slightly higher than the numbers for some nations. The country may need to take drastic measures to tackle child malnutrition.PMID:37705103 | PMC:PMC10498527 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-023-00442-x (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)

Analysis of the association between osteoporosis and muscle strength in Korean adults: a national cross-sectional study
CONCLUSIONS: The results showed that osteoporosis was likely to contribute to an increased prevalence rate of LMS in terms of HGS. Aging, BMI, and renal function also had significant effects on the association between osteoporosis and LMS. This association is likely to assist in developing better strategies to estimate bone health in clinical or public health practice.PMID:37700322 | PMC:PMC10498644 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-023-00443-w (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)

Telehealth and cardiometabolic-based chronic disease: optimizing preventive care in forcibly displaced migrant populations
J Health Popul Nutr. 2023 Sep 4;42(1):93. doi: 10.1186/s41043-023-00418-x.ABSTRACTThe number of migrants, which includes forcibly displaced refugees, asylum seekers, and undocumented persons, is increasing worldwide. The global migrant population is heterogeneous in terms of medical conditions and vulnerability resulting from non-optimal metabolic risk factors in the country of origin (e.g., abnormal adiposity, dysglycemia, hypertension, and dyslipidemia), adverse travel conditions and the resulting stress, poverty, and anxiety, and varying effects of acculturation and access to healthcare services in the country of destin...
