  1. 1. Bone mass and physical activity

    Författare :Anna Nordström; Tommy Olsson; Peter Nordström; Heather McKay; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; physical activity; peak bone mineral density; males; fractures; Medicin; Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract Weak and osteoporotic bones in old age are an increasing cause of mortality and painful physical impairment of the elderly, especially in the western world. Bone mineral accrual during childhood and adolescence is thought to play a vital role in preventing osteoporosis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Fatigue after traumatic brain injury : exploring novel methods for diagnosis and treatment

    Sammanfattning : Background: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most common causes of disability and mortality. While some patients recover quickly, especially at the mild side of the injury severity continuum, many will experience symptoms for years to come. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : BackgroundLow aerobic fitness and obesity are associated with atherosclerosis, and thereforegreatly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and early death. It has long been known that atherosclerosis my begin early in life. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Vitamins, fatty acids, physical activity and peak bone mass

    Författare :Magnus Högström; Peter Nordström; Anna Nordström; Jon Karlsson; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mineral density, deteriorated bone microstructure and increased fracture risk. About 50% of all women and 25% of all men will have an osteoporotic fracture. Given that there is no effective cure in established osteoporosis, prevention is of high importance. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Healthy Ageing Initiative : Prevention of falls and fractures

    Författare :Jonas Johansson; Peter Nordström; Anna Nordström; Jon Karlsson; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The world is currently experiencing a dramatic increase in the number of older individuals, an amount that is expected to double between 2015 and 2050. This increase will likely affect the prevalence of age-related functional impairments, such as those caused by fractures. LÄS MER
