  1. 1. Body composition and quality of life in patients with IBD, ileostomy and short bowel syndrome

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Eva Carlsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; inflammatory bowel disease; Crohn´s disease; ulcerative colitis; short bowel syndrome; quality of life; health related quality of life; coping; concern; body composition; bioelectric impedance spectroscopy; Dual-energy absorptiometry; total body water;

    Sammanfattning : Patients with IBD are at risk for intestinal disability (e.g. having a stoma, malnutrition). The general aim of the thesis was to investigate physiological, psychological and social consequences of having IBD and an ileostomy or short bowel syndrome (SBS). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Osteoporosis in elderly women; Bone traits, fracture and the PTH gene complex

    Detta är en avhandling från Clinical and Molecular Osteoporosis Research Unit, Clinical Sciences, Malmö

    Författare :Max Tenne; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; osteoporosis; fracture; parathyroid hormone; gene; polymorphism; dual energy X-ray absorptiometry; bone mineral density; hip strength analysis;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Fragility fractures are a major health problem world wide and the numbers are growing due to ageing populations. Early identification of individuals at risk for osteoporosis and fracture, enabling preventive measures and treatment is essential. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Studies on nutrition, body composition and bone mineralization in healthy 8-yr-olds in an urban Swedish community

    Detta är en avhandling från Clinical and Molecular Osteoporosis Research Unit, Clinical Sciences, Malmö

    Författare :Susanne Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; body composition; bone mineralization; dual energy x-ray absorptiometry; healthy; lipids; metabolic markers; overweight; physical activity;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The incidence of welfare diseases including overweight in childhood is increasing worldwide. The results from a study of healthy pre-school children showed that in a population with well educated parents 17% of the children were overweight or obese at the age of 4 years. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Human body composition. Reference data and anthropometric equations. The metabolic syndrome and risk

    Detta är en avhandling från Clinical and Molecular Osteoporosis Research Unit, Clinical Sciences, Malmö

    Författare :Ingrid Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adults; anthropometry; atherosclerotic morbidity; body composition; body fat; cardiovascular disease; DEXA; dual energy x-ray absorptiometry; fat-free mass; FFM; humans; metabolic syndrome; morbidity; mortality; prediction equations; randomly selected sample; reference data; sagittal trunk diameter; TBK; total body potassium; waist circumference;

    Sammanfattning : The determination of body composition is a key to the understanding of the relation between obesity and disease. In order to evaluate body composition data, reference values are needed. Since methods with high validity and reproducibility are expensive and often time consuming, simpler techniques based on anthropometry are needed. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Peak Bone Mass, Lifestyle Factors and Birth Weight: A study of 25-year old women

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Mattias Callréus; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peak bone mass; normative values; birth weight; physical activity; smoking; bone mineral density; bone mineral content; dual energy X-ray absorptiometry;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Osteoporosis is a common bone disease, which does not give symptoms until the ultimate outcome, the fragility fracture occurs. Regulation of bone mass is controlled by genetic, environmental and nutritional influences. LÄS MER
