  1. 1. Lumbar spinal stenosis Body mass index and the patient's perspective

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Sammanfattning : During recent decades, lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) has become the most common indication for spine surgery, a change that coincides with a higher worldwide prevalence of overweight and obesity. Thus, surgical treatment of LSS in the overweight and obese population is common and increasing in scope. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Body mass index, cognitive ability, and dementia prospective associations and methodological issues in late life

    Detta är en avhandling från Jönköping : Intellecta infolog

    Författare :Anna Dahl; Högskolan i Jönköping.; Högskolan i Jönköping.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; aging; body mass index; cognition; dementia; epidemiology; longitudinal; population-based; prospective; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Older people and ageing; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Äldre och åldrande;

    Sammanfattning : The aims of the present study were to investigate the association between overweight and cognitive ability and dementia, and to evaluate the usefulness of self-reported body mass index (BMI) in late life and various data sources commonly used in epidemiological studies to identify persons with dementia. Data were drawn from three population-based studies: the Swedish Adoption/Twin Study of Aging (SATSA), Aging in Women and Men: A Longitudinal Study of Gender Differences in Health Behaviour and Health among Elderly (the Gender Study), and the Finnish Lieto Study.

  3. 3. Economic perspectives on the obesity epidemic

    Detta är en avhandling från Jönköping : Intellecta infolog

    Författare :Åsa Ljungvall; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Obesity; body-mass index; BMI; waist circumference; inequality; socioeconomic inequalities; concentration index; socioeconomic disparities; time trends; economic freedom; misreporting; misclassification;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis takes its starting point in the large spread and rise in obesity prevalence that have been observed around the world, making obesity an increasing public health concern. The thesis consists of an introductory chapter, which justifies the study of obesity from economic perspectives and puts the subsequent studies in context, and four studies that address obesity from different economic perspectives.

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Jönköping : Intellecta infolog

    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. The importance of body mass index and weight-change in patients with coronary artery disease

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

    Författare :Linn Kennedy; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Cardiovascular system; Medicin människa och djur ; Kardiovaskulära systemet; prognosis; coronary artery disease; body mass index;

    Sammanfattning : High body mass index (BMI) is associated with cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, and insulin resistance. Obesity is also an independent risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD) and can cause structural as well as functional changes in the heart. High BMI is associated with increased mortality in the population. LÄS MER
