    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to study the biomarker homocysteine and other novel potential vascular risk factors for dementia. In an out-patient based study of a cohort of 926 consecutive subjects referred to our Memory Unit during 1996―2000, serum-folate was lower and total plasma homocysteine (tHcy) and serum methyl malonate were higher in subjects being prescribed with B12.

  2. 2. Measurement Variability Related to Insulin Secretion and Sensitivity Assessment and Implications in Epidemiological Studies

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Lars Berglund; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]

    Sammanfattning : There is a growing interest in random measurement variability of biological variables. In regression models, such variability of the predictors yields biased estimators of coefficients (regression dilution bias). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Physical restraint use and falls in institutional care of old people effects of a restraint minimization program

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Författare :Tony Pellfolk; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical restraints; falls; dementia; care of the elderly; risk factors; work environment; restraint minimization education program; staff knowledge and attitude; and quality of care.; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Geriatrics and medical gerontology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Geriatrik och medicinsk gerontologi; geriatrik; Geriatrics;

    Sammanfattning : Physical restraint use and falls are common in institutional care of old people and various attempts have been made to reduce their occurrence. Falls and concomitant injuries are a major problem due to their negative effect on morbidity and mortality. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Blood pressure in advanced age with focus on epidemiology, cognitive impairment and mortality

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Författare :Lena Molander; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Blood pressure; hypertension; very old; mortality; epidemiology; cognitive impairment; dementia; Blodtryck; hypertoni; mycket gamla; dödlighet; epidemiologi; demens; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Geriatrics and medical gerontology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Geriatrik och medicinsk gerontologi; geriatrik; Geriatrics; Epidemiology; epidemiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The general conception is that blood pressure increases with age, but that diastolic blood pressure (DBP) starts decreasing in the elderly. There are, however, indications that systolic blood pressure (SBP) might also decline in advanced age, but further studies are needed to establish whether this is true. LÄS MER

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Författare :Undis Englund; Umeå universitet.; [2009]

    Sammanfattning : Scandinavia has among the highest incidence of fragility fractures in the world. The reasons for this are unknown, but might involve differences in genetic and/or environmental factors, such as sunlight exposure and levels of physical activity. LÄS MER
