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

    Författare :Eva Carlsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    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

    Författare :Max Tenne; Ortopedi - klinisk och molekylär osteoporosforskning; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

    Författare :Susanne Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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. Mild primary hyperparathyroidism - Long-term effects of parathyroidectomy versus observation - with emphasis on skeletal outcomes

    Författare :Karolina Lundstam; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; primary hyperparathyroidism; parathyroidectomy; observation; vertebral fractures; peripheral fractures; kidney stones; radiography; bone mineral density; dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry; mortality;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The majority of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) in developed countries today present with no obvious symptoms, i.e. the mild form of the disease. LÄS MER

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

    Författare :Ingrid Larsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :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
