    Sammanfattning : Down syndrome (DS) is associated with psychomotor retardation, short stature and endocrine dysfunction. Statural growth is a well-known indicator of health. The growth in DS differs markedly from that of other children and there is a 20 cm reduction of final height as compared to target height. LÄS MER

    Nyckelord :obesity; weight loss; quality of life; mood; anxiet; y depression; psychosocial functioning; eating behavior; restraint eating; emotional eating; psychometric methods; factor structure; responsiveness; prediction; gastric surgery; controlled clinical trial; outcome measure;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: to document the impact of obesity on health-related quality of life (HRQL), to evaluate the effects of weight reduction treatment on HRQL, and to validate and improve methods for the assessment of HRQL in obesity. Methods: a) SOS comprises a cross-sectional study, an ongoing prospective intervention trial, and a longitudinal population study (n=1135). LÄS MER

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Coping strategies and health-related quality of life in persons with traumatic spinal cord lesion

    Författare :Magnus Lundgren Elfström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :spinal cord injuries; scale development; coping behaviour; distress; mental health; quality of life; psychometrics; validation; cross-sectional;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: The overall aims of the thesis were to investigate coping strategies employed by persons with traumatic spinal cord lesion (SCL) to cope with the lesion and its consequences, and to study the relations between coping strategies and health-related quality of life (HRQL). Further, specific contributions to SCL-related scale development were given. LÄS MER

    Nyckelord :obesity; controlled intervention study; surgery; weight loss; economics; sick leave; disability pension; willingness to pay; in-patient care; pharmaceuticals.;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: To analyse the patterns of sick leave, disability pension and drug consumption, and the willingness to pay (WTP) for obesity treatment among obese individuals. To estimate indirect obesity-related morbidity costs and direct costs of medication in relation to these costs in the general population. LÄS MER
