A number of studies have evidenced the effect of modifiable lifestyle factors such as diet, breastfeeding and nutritional status on breast cancer risk. However, none have addressed the missing data problem in nutritional epidemiologic research in South America. Missing data is a frequent problem in breast cancer studies and epidemiological settings in general. Estimates of effect obtained from these studies may be biased, if no appropriate method for handling missing data is applied. We performed Multiple Imputation for missing values on covariates in a breast cancer case-control study of Córdoba (Argentina) to optimize risk estimates. Data was obtained from a breast cancer case control study from 2008 to 2015 (318 cases, 526 controls). Complete case analysis and multiple imputation using chained equations were the methods applied to estimate the effects of a Traditional dietary pattern and other recognized factors associated with breast cancer. Physical activity and socioeconomic status were
The patients anxiety state is augmented more by disclosure of disease "labeling", or diagnosis from the physician at a general checkup than by a simple notification of abnormal values. Excluding the effects of potential confounding variables such as anxiety traits or depressive states associated with personality and types of lifestyle-related diseases also led to similar results. Additionally, even with mild deviations in the abnormal test values, disease diagnosis disclosure elicited an anxiety state in patients. Despite these results, improvements in daily life behavior due to the perception of abnormality notification or diagnosis disclosure were not observed one month after the general checkup. The results of the present study showed that, even in a general checkup for the general population, disclosing non-critical diseases such as lifestyle-related diseases exacerbated anxiety as a short-term psychological impact.. Anxiety state is thought to be affected by many factors. In particular, ...
Decreased nitric oxide (NO) availability due to obesity and endothelial dysfunction might be causally related to the development of lifestyle-related diseases such as insulin resistance, ischemic heart disease, and hypertension. In such situations, instead of impaired NO synthase (NOS)-dependent NO generation, the entero-salivary nitrate-nitrite-NO pathway might serve as a backup system for NO generation by transmitting NO activities in the various molecular forms including NO and protein S-nitrosothiols. Recently accumulated evidence has demonstrated that dietary intake of fruits and vegetables rich in nitrate/nitrite is an inexpensive and easily-practicable way to prevent insulin resistance and vascular endothelial dysfunction by increasing the NO availability; a NO-rich diet may also prevent other lifestyle-related diseases, including osteoporosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cancer. This review provides an overview of our current knowledge of NO generation through the

BACKGROUND: Excess body weight, physical activity, smoking, alcohol consumption and certain dietary factors are individually related to colorectal cancer (CRC) risk; however, little is known about their joint effects. The aim of this study was to develop a healthy lifestyle index (HLI) composed of five potentially modifiable lifestyle factors - healthy weight, physical activity, non-smoking, limited alcohol consumption and a healthy diet, and to explore the association of this index with CRC incidence using data collected within the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) cohort. METHODS: In the EPIC cohort, a total of 347,237 men and women, 25- to 70-years old, provided dietary and lifestyle information at study baseline (1992 to 2000). Over a median follow-up time of 12 years, 3,759 incident CRC cases were identified. The association between a HLI and CRC risk was evaluated using Cox proportional hazards regression models and population attributable risks (PARs) ...
To describe the modifiable lifestyle risk factors for stroke among a high risk population for stroke. Africa suffers from rapid population growth, adoption of harmful western diets, and increased prevalence of hypertension and obesity. A total of 440 study participants were screened and 87 individuals with hypertension plus at least one other known stroke risk factor were enrolled. The prevalence of hypertension and diabetes mellitus in the screened population was 19.7 and 1.8%, respectively. Among those with hypertension only 2.3% (2/87) had ever had serum lipid assessment. Seventy-two percent (68/87) had very high serum LDL-cholesterol, while 33.3% (29/87) had low levels of HDL-cholesterol, and 67.8% had mean blood pressures greater than 160/100 mmHg and 40% (35/87) were obese, with a BMI ≥30. Targeting individuals with modifiable stroke risk factors and implementing self-management programs may be a way to reduce stroke burden in Uganda.
Obesity is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes. However, abdominal obesity has been more closely linked to metabolic complications that increase type 2 diabetes risk than excess body weight. Excess intra-abdominal (visceral) fat has also been shown to precede the development of type 2 diabetes. In this regard, reducing intra-abdominal fat through weight loss can improve metabolic risk variables, including glucose-insulin parameters. Several intervention studies have reported that lifestyle modification programs stressing physical activity and healthy eating could substantially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes in high-risk patients with abdominal obesity and impaired glucose tolerance. These lifestyle modification programs were shown to be remarkably effective despite the fact that they only produced less than a 5% weight loss. By itself, physical activity has a significant metabolic impact by improving indices of plasma glucose-insulin homeostasis, even in the absence of weight loss. Although ...
BACKGROUND: Promoting positive changes in lifestyle behavior in the whole population may be a feasible and effective approach to reducing type 2 diabetes burden, but the impact of population shifts of modifiable risk factors remains unclear. Currently most of the evidence on modifiable lifestyle behavior and type 2 diabetes risk on a population level comes from studies of between-individual differences. The objective of the study was to investigate the association and potential impact on disease burden for within-individual change in lifestyle behavior and diabetes risk.. METHODS: Population-based prospective cohort study of 35,680 participants aged 30-50 at baseline in 1990-2003 in Västerbotten County, Sweden (follow-up until 2013). Five self-reported modifiable lifestyle behaviors (tobacco use, physical activity, alcohol intake, dietary fiber intake and dietary fat intake) were measured at baseline and 10 year follow-up. Lifestyle behaviors were studied separately, and combined in a score. ...

Negative lifestyle factors are known to be associated with increased cardiovascular risk (CVR) in children, but research on their combined impact on a general population of children is sparse. Therefore, we aimed to quantify the combined impact of easily assessable negative lifestyle factors on the CVR scores of randomly selected children after 4 years.; Of the 540 randomly selected 6- to 13-year-old children, 502 children participated in a baseline health assessment, and 64% were assessed again after 4 years. Measures included anthropometry, fasting blood samples, and a health assessment questionnaire. Participants scored one point for each negative lifestyle factor at baseline: overweight; physical inactivity; high media consumption; little outdoor time; skipping breakfast; and having a parent who has ever smoked, is inactive, or overweight. A CVR score at follow-up was constructed by averaging sex- and age-related z-scores of waist circumference, blood pressure, glucose, inverted high-density ...

Results Cigarette smoking was associated with increased risk for all polyps and was stronger for SSPs than for ADs (OR 1.74, 95% CI 1.16 to 2.62, for current vs never, ptrend=0.008). Current regular use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs was associated with a 40% reduction in SSP risk in comparison with never users (OR 0.68, 95% CI 0.48 to 0.96, ptrend=0.03), similar to the association with AD. Red meat intake was strongly associated with SSP risk (OR 2.59, 95% CI 1.41 to 4.74 for highest vs lowest intake, ptrend,0.001) and the association with SSP was stronger than with AD (ptrend=0.003). Obesity, folate intake, fibre intake and fat intake were not associated with SSP risk after adjustment for other factors. Exercise, alcohol use and calcium intake were not associated with risk for SSPs. ...
Objective: Premature CVD death is common among first responders. Effective risk reduction programs are urgently needed to address this public health concern. We tested the one year effectiveness of a lifestyle-based intervention program in police officers and firefighters in the Boston and Phoenix areas.. Methods: 173 participants with excess abdominal fat or CVD risk were assigned to a one year intervention or control group using cluster randomization by city. The intervention was comprised of a personalized nutrition plan based on an algorithm combining laboratory results with food preferences, phone coaching to encourage adherence to lifestyle recommendations including healthy eating and exercise and online food journaling.. Results: 130 participants remained in the study for one year (68 intervention; 62 control). In the intervention group the mean weight loss from baseline was 4.8% (4.9 kg, p,0.01) at 6 months and 3.1% (3.2 kg, p,0.01) from baseline at 1 year; waist circumference reduction ...
This study is timely given recent indications that the CHD mortality rate in women ages 35 to 44 years may not be declining as it is in other groups (2). Furthermore, there is limited evidence regarding associations between modifiable lifestyle factors and CHD in young women. Existing evidence for CHD risk factors in young women comes primarily from small case-control studies and is limited to oral contraceptive use (24), smoking (25), diabetes (25), hypertension (25), alcohol (26), and coffee (27).. To our knowledge, this is the first study to investigate the association between lifestyle factors and risk for both clinical CVD risk factors and incident CHD. Focusing on primordial prevention through healthy lifestyle could importantly address the economic burden of the medical management of clinical CVD risk factors (1,7) as well the substantial health care costs of subsequent CHD, stroke, eye disease, and premature death (1,4,7,28,29). In the American Heart Associations 2020 Impact Goals, ...
MONDAY, Sept. 2, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- An unhealthy lifestyle is a bigger contributor to heart disease than genetics for many younger adults, according to a new study.. The findings show that good health habits should be a key part of prevention efforts, even in people with a family history of early heart disease, researchers said.. The study included 1,075 people under age 50. Of those, 555 had coronary artery disease.. The investigators assessed five lifestyle factors linked to heart disease: physical inactivity, smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.. In all, 73% of patients had at least three of the risk factors compared to 31% of those without coronary artery disease (the control group).. In both groups, the odds of coronary artery disease increased with each additional risk factor. The risk was three times higher for those with a single risk factor and 24 times higher for those with three or more, the findings showed.. The researchers also found that the ...

Studying gene-lifestyle interaction may help to identify lifestyle factors that modify genetic susceptibility and uncover genetic loci exerting important subgroup effects. Adequately powered studies with prospective, unbiased, standardised assessment of key behavioural factors for gene-lifestyle studies are lacking. This case-cohort study aims to investigate how genetic and potentially modifiable lifestyle and behavioural factors, particularly diet and physical activity, interact in their influence on the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Incident cases of type 2 diabetes occurring in European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) cohorts between 1991 and 2007 from eight of the ten EPIC countries were ascertained and verified. Prentice-weighted Cox regression and random-effects meta-analyses were used to investigate differences in diabetes incidence by age and sex. A total of 12,403 verified incident cases of type 2 diabetes occurred during 3.99 million person-years of ...

Type II diabetes is a progressive condition when the insulin producing cells in your body are unable to produce enough insulin, or when the insulin that your body is producing does not work properly. This can lead to a build up of glucose, when the body become too damaged from this build up it can cause life threatening complications such as: heart attacks, strokes and may lead to amputations.. Diabetes does run in the family. If you have a family member with diabetes, you have a genetic disposition to the condition. While genetics already put people at risk of diabetes, it is greatly increased if those family members display several modifiable lifestyle factors including high blood pressure, overweight or obesity, insufficient physical activity, poor diet and carrying extra weight around the waist.. Unfortunately, there is no current cure for type II diabetes but, you can manage the condition through lifestyle changes and medication. Introducing positive lifestyle changes will not only help you ...
Many patients at high risk of cardiovascular diseases are managed and monitored in general practice. Recommendations for cardiovascular risk management, including lifestyle change, are clearly described in the Dutch national guideline. Although lifestyle interventions, such as advice on diet, physical exercise, smoking and alcohol, have moderate, but potentially relevant effects in these patients, adherence to lifestyle advice in general practice is not optimal. The IMPALA study intends to improve adherence to lifestyle advice by involving patients in decision making on cardiovascular prevention by nurse-led clinics. The aim of this paper is to describe the design and methods of a study to evaluate an intervention aimed at involving patients in cardiovascular risk management. A cluster-randomised controlled trial in 20 general practices, 10 practices in the intervention arm and 10 in the control arm, starting on October 2005. A total of 720 patients without existing cardiovascular diseases but eligible

We appreciate the opportunity to respond to Gregg et al. (1) regarding our commentary on community-based lifestyle modification programs to prevent diabetes (2). Gregg et al. believe that we have a disagreement over the interpretation of the extant data and that in our analysis we ignored other important findings of the landmark trials.. Gregg et al. (1) cite the 2012 systematic review by Ali et al. (3) (which we discussed in our article) as evidence that in community programs "an average 4% weight loss was observed" (1), which Gregg et al. believe is "comparable" to the major prevention trials. What Gregg et al. (1) ignore is the fact that the duration of the intervention and follow-up in 24 of the 28 studies in the Ali article was less than 1 year- most were 3-9 months; only 4 had a duration of 1 year. As we showed (2), which was also confirmed in a more recent meta-analysis of lifestyle interventions (4), community-based studies lasting 1 year were able to achieve a weight loss compared with ...

There are a number of causes of slow metabolism that includes:. Hormonal aberrations. Hormones are chemicals in our body that performs different functions in our body. In case of any hormonal aberration, the speed of metabolic processes is greatly affected. A few most important of these hormones are insulin, thyroid and cortisol. Thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism) is one the most common cause of genetic or acquired slow metabolism.. Genetics. At times, deficiency of some enzymes run in families leading to slow metabolism and obesity trends that can only be managed by dietary modification and life-style changes. Although it is difficult to deal with genetic causes of slow metabolism directly, but the effects and complications can be largely controlled by organic methods without necessitating the need of medications or supplements..

THURSDAY, Oct. 12, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States, and routine screenings remain the most reliable way to detect the disease early, a breast cancer expert says.. "Breast cancer can be treated more successfully if detected in its early phases, while it is small and has not yet spread," said Dr. Kathryn Evers, director of mammography at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. "With todays state-of-the-art treatment options and less extensive surgery, patients are experiencing better outcomes.". Older age is a leading risk factor for breast cancer. Most women are diagnosed after the age of 50. Having certain mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes also predispose women to the disease. And there are some lifestyle-related risk factors that can be controlled, such as hormone therapy after menopause, obesity, alcohol intake and physical inactivity, Evers said.. "Having one risk factor or even several doesnt mean a ...
Could an unhealthy diet and lack of exercise be making you age faster? Researchers at Mayo Clinic believe there is a link between these modifiable lifestyle factors and the biological processes of aging. In a recent study, researchers demonstrated that a poor diet and lack of exercise accelerated the onset of cellular senescence and, in turn, age-related conditions in mice. Results appear today in Diabetes.
In the setting of genetic and lifestyle-related risk factors, aging contributes to the development of type 2 diabetes through impaired β-cell function and impaired β-cell adaptation to insulin resistance (9,10) leading to impaired insulin secretion (11,12), as illustrated in Fig. 1. Studies in rodents and humans have found that aging may exert a distinct influence on β-cell turnover as well as function.. In older patients who have developed diabetes, autoimmune destruction of β-cells is rarely observed. Limited pathologic investigation suggests that total β-cell mass may be moderately reduced, but severe loss of β-cell mass is uncommon. Pancreatic β-cell mass in adult humans exists in a dynamic state such that the cells can undergo compensatory changes to maintain euglycemia. Aging is thought to be associated with reduced capacity to regenerate β-cells, as suggested by studies involving rodents (13-15) and humans (16-18). On the one hand, for example, the β-cell toxin streptozotocin, ...

This study showed that adoption of the healthy lifestyle habits above was associated with lower CAC incidence, slower CAC progression, a trend towards lower cardiovascular event risk, and significantly lower all-cause mortality over 7.6 years.2 To our knowledge, this is the first study to connect the protective effects of healthy lifestyle across baseline subclinical vascular disease, atherosclerotic progression, clinical coronary heart disease (CHD), and death in a single longitudinal evaluation.. Results of this study are consistent with those of prior authors who have investigated the effects of lifestyle on CHD and death independently. At least five large prospective studies have shown protective effects of smoking avoidance, weight maintenance, physical activity, and diet on mortality.3-8 However, inclusion of CAC as an additional measure of subclinical atherosclerosis along the intermediary pathway lends biologic credibility to the outcomes investigated in our study.. Much attention has ...
Lack of awareness, along with lifestyle-related factors, is a a key factor that leads to the high incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Dubai, says a specialist cardiologist at Medeor 24x7 Hospital.
Although aerobic exercise training (AT) has been the cornerstone of rehabilitation for patients with CVD or MetS, experts agree that with the escalating problem of obesity, prevention programs in this area need to target weight loss (WL) as well. This is reinforced by recent research of our own showing that obesity is a major risk factor for physical disability among older adults. From a translational perspective, clinical researchers have recommended that effective community partnerships are needed to deliver such programs. In response to this call, the investigators have recently completed a translational study funded by NHLBI, the Cooperative Lifestyle Intervention Program (CLIP). In this investigation, 288 obese, older adults with CVD or MetS were randomized to a successful aging control treatment (SA), AT, or AT+WL for 18-months. The primary outcome was mobility disability, assessed by performance on the 400 m Walk Test (400MWT), and our staff co-delivered the interventions with agents from ...
