This study highlights the wide range of barriers to insulin initiation in Malaysia and provides an overview as to why the use of insulin remains low. What is remarkable is the similarity of the barriers encountered in a multicultural, Asian country to barriers reported in studies conducted in the West. A Pubmed search of qualitative studies which focus on barriers to insulin initiation identified eight studies from North American [25, 26], UK [27-30], European [31] and South African [32] settings. Thematic consistency is apparent between these studies and our study, suggesting that these barriers are widely held ideas and that the results of this study are generalisable.. Studies on psychological insulin resistance amongst multi-ethnic populations have found that ethnicity is an important determining factor. Studies in the west have found that Hispanic and ethnic minorities are less willing to start insulin therapy [19, 33]. Reasons for this resistance include perceived lack of access to care ...
Attenuation of the effect of ethnicity on the risk of incident ischemic stroke when P-wave terminal force was included in the models raises the possibility that differences in AF predictors and subsequently ethnic differences in AF (including paroxysmal AF) could partially explain the ethnic difference of stroke incidence. Although we could not confirm that such attenuation is statistically significant, given the overlapping CIs of the HR in the models, the persistence of attenuation among different models is in favor of none by chance results.. Because we showed that ECG AF predictors were equally predictive for AF and that they are more prevalent in blacks than whites, it would be expected that an increased prevalence of AF in blacks compared with whites would result-just the reverse of findings reported by previous studies but is in concert with the fact of high stroke burden in blacks and the strong association between AF and stroke. A potential explanation for this paradox comes from the ...
Approximately 120 adolescents from each of four ethnic groups - Malay, Chinese, Indian and Australian - stratified by age and sex, were individually asked to rank six postulated reasons why people are religious. In brief, the alternatives related to Gods will, family, own effort, natural gift, own choice and luck. The alternative luck was rejected by all subject in all groups. The results seemed to be consistent with the likely religious influences in the ethnic groups. The most significant finding was that age and sex as individual differences variables correlated with attribution in different ways and to different extents in the four groups. The result were related to Weiners attribution theory and to Herbsts findings on relationships between variables for particular individuals. ...
Kitty Lymperopoulou 1, Nissa Finney 2, Gemma Catney 3, 1 University of Manchester, 2 University of St Andrews, 3 University of Liverpool There has been a longstanding debate in the UK about the residential patterns of ethnic minority groups and the consequences of these patterns for social cohesion. However, there has been less focus on the role of residential segregation in perpetuating the socio-economic disadvantage of ethnic minority groups, and as yet there is little evidence on how residential segregation patterns relate to spatial patterns of ethnic inequality. This chapter draws on data from the 2001 and 2011 Censuses in the UK to explore how ethnic group concentrations within local authorities in England and Wales are related to patterns of ethnic inequality in employment, education, housing, and health. The Index of Dissimilarity is used to measure residential segregation for nine ethnic minority groups in 2011 and how it has changed since 2001, for neighbourhoods (output areas) within ...

The purpose of this study was to assess the association and report effect sizes between the rs9939609 SNP in the FTO gene with direct measures of body fat using imaging techniques in a multi-ethnic cohort. We found differences in minor allele frequency among the four groups such that the frequency of the minor allele was highest in the European and South Asian groups, and lowest in Aboriginal and Chinese groups. In Aboriginals and Europeans, the minor allele was associated with dietary intake and VAT (Europeans only). When the four ethnic groups were analysed together, the FTO rs9939609 minor allele was also associated with body fat measures and SAT.. The minor allele frequencies reported in the present study are similar to that found in a number of studies investigating similar ethnic groups (Al-Attar et al., 2008; Li et al., 2008; Sanghera et al., 2008; Rong et al., 2009; Yajnik et al., 2009). Our investigation adds to this by providing direct comparisons of allele frequency in these ethnic ...

Albain and colleagues analyzed the association between clinical outcomes and race in participants from the TAILORx trial, which evaluated more than 10,000 women with the most common type of early breast cancer (HR-positive, HER2-negative, axillary lymph node-negative). Findings released from the TAILORx study in June 2018 showed no benefit from chemotherapy for 70 percent of the women in the trial. It found that treatment to prevent the cancer from returning with chemotherapy and hormone therapy, following surgery, is not more beneficial than hormone therapy alone in patients with a low or intermediate recurrence score.. Following enrollment in the TAILORx trial, patients tumors were analyzed using the 21-gene Oncotype DX recurrence score (RS; on a scale of 0-100), which predicts cancer recurrence. Patients with low risk (RS score of 0-10) were treated with hormone therapy alone, while patients with high risk (RS score 26 and above) were treated with hormone therapy and chemotherapy. Patients ...

For the purposes of the data presented here race refers to the self designation of a racial or ethnic group by the respondent in the above named studies and cell lines. The investigators realize that there are more specific designations for each of the ethnic groups reported here and that these self designations may be inaccurate and/or misleading and should only be used for hypothesis generation purposes. It is a well known genetic fact that genetic variation within self designated ethnic groups is greater than between ethnic groups and these data should not and indeed cannot be used to generalize to a whole race. It is also recognized that race or ethnic groups are social constructs that may (or may not) be a proxy variable for variation in SNP presence or allele frequency. At best, they may offer a clue as to what might be found in a larger outbred population in the US.. ...

I agree with Marysia.. For one, I would like to point out that white privilege does not mean that all people of Anglo descent (and yes I know that Anglo and white do not mean the same thing exactly, but I use Anglo because it is the generally accepted term for lack of a better word) should feel guilty for what someone who happens to be the same ethnic group did two hundred years ago. After all, I cannot think of a single ethnic group, white or not, that has not gone to war with another group or discriminated against another group. It happens often.. What white privilege refers to is the fact that certain ethnic groups have fewer problems with poverty, have better standards of education, have lower rates of infant mortality, etc. These ethnic groups fall under the blanket of what we call Anglo. I do not believe that most white privilege is intentional- after all, no baby decides what social class or ethnic group to be born into. In fact, what separates white privilege from racism is the ...

INTRODUCTION. The term race refers to a group of genetically related persons who share certain physical characteristics such as skin colour and facial features, and who have for a long time been isolated geographically, or have in common cultural or religious practices.1, 2 On the other hand, the term ethnicity, which has been found to be more socially acceptable, applies to a group of people of the same nationality, language or culture, and who may or may not have genetic markers in common.1, 2. There are two ways of considering race. The first is in terms of anthropological classifications of negroid, caucasoid etc; and the second is based either on overt physical characteristics or, as in the United States, on self racial-identification.3 Almost universally throughout the world, this second system of classification is applied.. As there is no clear distinction between race and ethnicity, many researchers no longer distinguish between these, but rather use the single term race/ethnicity.1, 2 ...

This thesis deals with socioeconomic and ethnic inequalities in psychological factors and in health-related quality of life among patients with coronary heart disease, as well as with psychosocial predictors of positive and negative changes in quality of life among patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). With regard to the psychological factors, the present study is focusing on the following most commonly researched characteristics: psychological well-being, vital exhaustion, Type D personality and hostility. Psychological well-being is characterized by the occurrence and severity of the depression and anxiety symptoms, which are strongly associated with the coronary heart disease. Vital exhaustion, a state characterized by lack of energy, increased irritability and feelings of demoralisation, is also known as one of the risk factors for coronary heart disease, and has been shown to be a substantial predictor of myocardial infarction. Type D personality defines individuals who experience ...

Introduction. Outline and account for the disadvantages experienced by minority ethnic groups in British society. Society is made up of a number of social divisions including age, sex, ethnicity, income, wealth and sexual orientation. Many theorists and critics have their own definition of social divisions. For example, Bilton et al (2002, p.70) states: In broad terms, the concept of social divisions refers to ways in which, either as individuals or more commonly as members of social groupings, we construct social differences among ourselves.... There has been a growing interest in the study of race and ethnicity in Britain over the course of the twentieth century. I, therefore, intend to discuss the difficulties faced by ethnic minority groups in Britain. It is also important to examine how ethnic minority groups are disadvantaged from access to other social rights - such as the rights to housing, education and employment (Ginsburg, 1998; Macey, 1995), which is what I intend to discuss ...
Siddiqi and Nguyen (see page 28) take advantage of a unique data set, the Joint Canada-United States Survey of Health (JCUSH), which allows for the examination of cross-national racial inequalities.1 Their article reports on a provocative set of analyses, which have important implications for understanding the causes and solutions to health inequalities. By examining the nature of health inequalities across two countries with many cultural and historical similarities, they seek to determine whether racial inequalities are unique to the USA or whether they also exist in Canada. The answer? Race inequalities are not found in Canada after accounting for socioeconomic status. Their findings place doubt on the highly questionable, yet widely reported, claim that differences in health status across racial/ethnic groups are mainly the result of innate biological or genetic differences. Rather, their analyses direct … ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Declining dominance of an ethnic group in a large multi-ethnic developing country. T2 - The case of the Javanese in Indonesia. AU - Ananta, Aris. AU - Utami, Dwi Retno Wilujeng Wahyu. AU - Purbowati, Ari. PY - 2016/1/1. Y1 - 2016/1/1. N2 - Indonesia is undergoing a third demographic transition that features changes in ethnic composition. We examine quantitatively the extent and change of dominance of the Javanese, who have experienced below replacement fertility. As used herein, an ethnic group is said to be dominant if it is the largest ethnic group and its percentage is at least twice the percentage of the second largest ethnic group. The Javanese are the largest, most ubiquitous and politically important ethnic group in Indonesia. This quantitative analysis addresses the ethnic dominance and cultural hegemony literature. We question the ubiquity of the Javanese - who represent the process of Javanization - because Indonesias Javanese character/culture may be eroding. We find ...
Based on the aforementioned data, the risk index (RI) identifies the percentage of all students of a given racial/ethnic group in a given disability category. The RI is calculated by dividing the number of students in a given racial/ethnic group served in a given disability category (e.g. LD) by the total enrollment for that racial/ethnic group in the school population. The 1998 OCR data revealed risk indices for all racial/ethnic groups that were higher for LD than those found for MR. The NRC (2002) report stated that, Asian/Pacific Islander have placement rates of 2.23%. Rates for all other racial/ethnic groups exceed 6%, and for American Indian/Alaskan Natives, the rate reached 7.45% (p. 47). The second index, odds ratio, provides a comparative index of risk and is calculated by dividing the risk index on one racial/ethnic group by the risk index of another racial/ethnic group. In the OCR and OSEP databases, the odds ratios are reported relative to White students. If the risk index is ...
The main plan of my research is to expand follow-up studies on the global birth cohorts from diverse ethnic groups to eventually enable precise screening. This aim is aligned with the missions of Stanford Long-Range Planning and Precision Health to diminish health disparities. Therefore, our research supports the University mission of deep phenotyping and care of diverse patients and populations. These studies have the potential to specify mechanistic and causality insights from the drivers of diabetes and insulin resistance risk in different ethnicities. The ultimate goal of my research is to pave the way for opportunities to prevent insulin resistance as early as 10-20 years before the onset of diabetes and the age-related adverse outcomes such as vascular dementia and to reduce the widening ethnic inequalities ...

Study Design: This was a retrospective cohort study of all women delivered within a managed care network. Rates of GDM were calculated for maternal, paternal, and combined race/ethnicity. Results: Among the 139,848 women with identified race/ethnicity, Asians had the highest rate (P , .001) of GDM (6.8%) as compared with whites (3.4%), African Americans (3.2%), and Hispanics (4.9%). When examining race/ethnicity controlling for potential confounders, we found that the rates of GDM were higher among Asian (adjusted odds ratio [aOR], 1.5; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.4-1.6) and ...
Genomic diversity of 21 STR loci has been studied in six ethnic populations of Daghestan (the Caucasus), namely, Avars, Dargins, Kubachians, Lezgins, and Nogais, and the results have been compared with these data for European, African, and East Asian ethnic groups. Daghestan is unique in its ethnic diversity, which is the greatest in the Caucasus: 26 out of approximately 50 autochthonous ethnic groups of the Caucasus live there. The genetic origin of this wide ethnic diversity of Daghestan and the Caucasus as a whole is still obscure. The genetic heterogeneity of Daghestan populations has been found to be lower than that of most other populations in the world. This is explained by a prolonged isolation and gene drift in their demographic history. Generalized genetic distances between ethnic groups calculated for the whole set of loci studied allow differentiating Asian populations from African ones, with European populations occupying intermediate positions. All Daghestan ethnic populations form a
The paper presents an empirical analysis of inter-ethnic relations among adolescents in Englands schools, the first national study of schools throughout England to relate inter-ethnic attitudes to both school and area ethnic composition. We combine survey data on warmth of feeling for specific ethnic groups, friendships and attitudes with administrative data on the shares of those groups at school and area level. We confirm that the pupils have warmer feelings for their own ethnic group than for others. Second, we show that in schools with more pupils from another ethnic group the gap between a pupils views of those from her own group and from another ethnic group is smaller. This is true for attitudes of the majority and of minority ethnic groups. Third, we show that school composition (interpreted as contact) mitigates area composition (interpreted as exposure).. ...

In essence, an ethnic group is a named social category of people based on perceptions of shared social experience or ancestry. Members of the ethnic group see themselves as sharing cultural traditions and history that distinguish them from other groups. Ethnic group identity has a strong psychological or emotional component that divides the people of the world into opposing categories of us and them. In contrast to social stratification, which divides and unifies people along a series of horizontal axes on the basis of socioeconomic factors, ethnic identities divide and unify people along a series of vertical axes. Thus, ethnic groups, at least theoretically, cut across socioeconomic class differences, drawing members from all strata of the population ...

Background: South Asians (SA) have a high prevalence of diabetes (DM) which may be due to differences in insulin resistance (IR) or beta-cell function. We compared the prevalence of DM, IR, and beta cell function between SA and four race/ethnic groups. We also determined whether the association between age and adiposity with IR and beta cell function differed by ethnicty.. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional analysis of two cohorts aged 44-84 years without CVD: the Mediators of Atherosclerosis in South Asians Living in America (MASALA) study and the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA). We compared 799 SA with 2,611 Whites, 1,879 African Americans (AA), 1,493 Latinos and 801 Chinese Americans (CA). DM was classified by fasting plasma glucose ≥126 mg/dL or use of a diabetes medication. Insulin resistance was estimated by the homeostasis model assessment (HOMA)-IR and beta cell function by the HOMA-ß model. Spline curves displayed the effect of age and waist with HOMA-IR and HOMA- ...
The Marmot Review (2010) recommends that investment should be made into interventions targeting the early years, as it is believed this is where the greatest impact can be achieved. The review specifically recommends support for transition between home and primary school as this is highlighted as a period which may be particularly challenging for those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Emanating from this perspective and focusing on children up to 5 years old from minority ethnic backgrounds, this paper draws on findings from a small study with foundation stage minority ethnic children, their parents and school teachers in a northern city in England, together with relevant literature to identify issues in transition of minority ethnic children to primary school. Such an approach is necessary to reduce ethnic inequalities in both education and health related outcomes (Dyson et al., 2009).. Key messages:. ...
Advanced CKD is one of the starkest examples of disparities in health conditions, with rates of ESRD for racial/ethnic minorities ranging from 1.5 to 4.0 times those of age-adjusted white counterparts, although there are relatively similar rates for the early stages of CKD (1). Despite the consistent findings of increased ESRD among racial/ethnic minorities, the reasons for these disparities remain elusive. Health research often tries to identify an independent role of race/ethnicity by controlling for factors, such as socioeconomic status, education, health care utilization, and insurance, and exploring potential polymorphisms of genes that may influence the development and/or progression of CKD (1,2). However, rarely do we reflect on what the designation of race/ethnicity actually means beyond a simple census marker. The concepts of race and more recently, ethnicity are deeply integrated into the social fabric of our society. Yet, they often mean different things to different people, and the ...
Using data from a large national English patient survey we found substantially more negative experiences reported by ethnic minorities (particularly South Asians and Chinese), younger patients and those with poor self-rated health. Differences by gender and socioeconomic deprivation were limited and inconsistent. A substantial proportion of ethnic differences reflected concentration of ethnic minority patients in low-performing practices (consistent with the minorities concentrated in poor practices hypothesis, table 1), but concentration in low-scoring practices explained little of the large differences observed among patients of different age and self-rated health. In spite of large within-practice differences among patients of different ethnicity and self-rated health, primary care practices varied substantially in respect of these differences and in some practices South Asian and Chinese patients evaluated their experience similarly or more positively compared with White patients. This ...

This course provides basic theoretical and empirical knowledge about racial and ethnic relations in the United States. The first part of the course explores theories that explain the introduction, maintenance, reproduction, and persistence of race and ethnicity as meaningful social groupings. With this theoretical backdrop, we examine racial and ethnic relations in the real world. The main themes of this course are: 1) to explain whether, how and why race and ethnicity matter; 2) to demonstrate how race and ethnicity interact with and relate to larger social and economic institutions in the U.S.; and 3) to help you to construct theoretically informed and cogent arguments that support your own perspectives on racial and ethnic group relations.. We will consider the following questions: 1. What accounts for biological emphasis of race? 3. What accounts for racial/ethnic groups position in the class hierarchy? 4. How does the fact of being a racial/ethnic minority affect other group experiences? ...

Does where we come from affect our proneness to certain diseases? After all, if our ethnicity can be seen through our genetics, and genetic factors determine likeability for diseases, the link between ethnicity and health should come as no surprise, right?. In this article, well try to shed some light on this topic from a completely objective perspective.. For starters, we should acknowledge a simple truth: ethnicity and its real impact on biological matters is a sensitive subject. Only experts have come to face the fact that ethnicity actually has physiological consequences and therefore, might help to explain a certain predisposition to pathologies and disease. This article will include information on the different impacts that ethnic factors have on health. Because when talking about well-being and healthiness your origins matter. In order to genuinely consider health risks that you might face, it´s fundamental to identify the ethnic group of belonging. Ethnic aspects will inevitably be ...

In an iconic scene from the movie, Jennifer Lopez shows Constance Wu a few pole tricks, and Wu deflates. I cant do that. What if you dont have muscles to do that? From the pole, Jennifer Lopez replies matter-of-factly, You can, and you will. Every girl has muscles to do this. Theres a common misconception that pole dancing is for young, thin women with strong arms and an athletic build. Or more recently, for men.. As the founding organization behind the pole fitness movement more than 20 years ago, S Factor has led thousands of women of all levels of ability to discover their own sensual, feminine power. You dont have to be an athlete to join the diverse women of S Factor in tapping into your own power. Your body, age, and shape are not obstacles to dancing - your beliefs are the only limitations.

And heres where the short- and long-term meanings of diversity can actually diverge, in an interesting--and, I believe, very telling--way.
