In order to develop effective preventive strategies, knowledge of trends in socioeconomic and geographical differences in risk factor levels is important. The objective of this study was to examine social and spatial patterns of obesity diffusion in a Norwegian population during three decades. Data on adults aged 30-69 years from three cross-sectional health surveys eleven years apart in the Nord-Trøndelag Health Study, Norway, HUNT1 (1984-1986), HUNT2 (1995-1997) and HUNT3 (2006-2008) were utilized. Body mass index (BMI) was used as a measure of obesity. Height and weight were measured clinically. Age standardized prevalences, absolute prevalence differences and ratios, prevalence odds ratios for BMI and the Relative Index of Inequality (RII) were calculated. Multilevel statistical models were fitted for analysing geographical patterns. The prevalence of obesity was systematically higher in groups with lower socio-economic status and increased successively in all groups in the population during the
A new survey shows that only around 30 percent of Norwegian men use condoms when having "casual sex," reports the state health agency Folkehelseinstitutt. That ranks among the worst in Europe, and the consequences are also reflected in statistics showing a huge increase in cases of sexually transmitted diseases.. "Norwegian men are the worst in Europe at using condoms, and only condoms can protect against diseases," Kari Haugen, a nurse at the University of Stavanger, told NRK.. From her office at the universitys student union she points to research showing that three of four Norwegians have had unprotected sex and six out of 10 young Norwegian men failed to use a condom the last time they had sex with a new partner.. At the same time, health care officials are seeing a sharp rise in cases of syphillis, for example, up 500 percent between 2005 and 2015. Cases of gonorrhea doubled during the same time period, while there also were increases in cases of chronic hepatitis B and clamydia over the ...
The high intake of added sugar is one of the most important health-related concerns in the diet of children and adolescents.. To reduce the intake of added sugar, beverages with added sweeteners may be considered as a favorable alternative to sugar-containing products.. It has therefore been questioned whether the tax on drinks with added sweeteners should be decreased.. The Norwegian Food Safety Authority has been commissioned by the Ministry of Health and Care Services to assess whether the consumption of drinks with added sweeteners may pose a health risk to the population.. To investigate this issue, it is essential to get new and updated knowledge of the intake levels of sweeteners in the Norwegian population.. In order to provide a basis for answering the question asked by the Ministry, the Norwegian Food Safety Authority requested the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM) to calculate the intake of sweeteners in the Norwegian population from consumption of beverages, and ...

Materials for investigation were collected during research cruises in October-November in the coastal areas of western and northern Norway, and in December 1978 - May 1979 in the northern North Sea and south of the Faroes (Table l), During the autumn of 1978 T.sagittatus mainly migrated to the Andfjord area in North Norway where a fishery took place in October-December. Off northern Norway the mean mantle length of the different samples was 33-34 cm, off western Norway 27-30 cm. In the northern North Sea most squid taken during December-April measured 18-28 cm, a few 13-17 cm and 30-36 cm. Those taken in May had a mean length of 30 cm. The total edible weight was on an average 74% of the total weight (mantle 50%, arms and tentacles, 24%) . Off northern Norway the liver weight constituted 12,6% (6-16) of the total weight, off western Norway 10% (4-13), south of the Faroes, 7.1% (3-13) .

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health monitors the health of the population and works to improve general health by focusing on health promotion and the prevention of disease.
The main finding in this population-based study from central Norway was a high prevalence of PsA of 0.67%. This is higher than what has previously been reported in two previous studies from Norway (0.2%)9 ,15 as well as in reports from other parts of the world (,0.01-0.42%).13 ,14 The gender and age distribution in our study, however, was analogous to the Norwegian study by Madland and colleagues from the western part of Norway.9 The prevalence of PsA in our study is more comparable with the prevalence of RA in Norway which, in hospital-based studies, has been reported to be approximately 0.5%.18 ,19 Of note, a more equal prevalence of PsA and RA has also been suggested by some investigators assessing other populations.3 ,13. The majority (96.2%) of the PsA patients in this study had involvement of peripheral joints while only 3.8% had exclusive involvement of the spine. These numbers are in the same range as reported by Madland and colleagues.9 However, in the HUNT study, as many as 27.2% with ...
Background: A previous study has shown that variations in threshold and intensity (lipid goal attainment) of statins for primary prevention contribute to regional differences in overall consumption of statins in Norway. Our objective was to explore how differences in prevalences of use, dosing characteristics, choice of statin and continuity of therapy in individual patients adds new information to previous results. Methods: Data were retrieved from The Norwegian Prescription Database. We included individuals from counties with high, average, and low statin consumption, who had at least one statin prescription dispensed during 2004 (N = 40 143). 1-year prevalence, prescribed daily dose (PDD), statin of choice, and continuity of therapy assessed by mean number of tablets per day. Results: The high-consumption county had higher prevalence of statin use in all age groups. Atorvastatin and simvastatin were dispensed in 79-87% of all statin users, and the proportion was significantly higher in the ...
Background: While BRCA mutation carriers possess a 20-40% lifetime risk of developing ovarian cancer, knowledge about genetic modifying factors influencing the phenotypic expression remains obscure. We explored the distribution of the MDM2 polymorphisms SNP309T>G and the recently discovered SNP285G>C in Norwegian patients with BRCA related ovarian cancer.. G and the recently discovered SNP285G>C in Norwegian patients with BRCA related ovarian cancer.. C in Norwegian patients with BRCA related ovarian cancer.. Methods: 221 BRCA related ovarian cancer cases (BRCA1; n = 161 and BRCA2; n = 60) were tested for the MDM2 polymorphisms. Results were compared to healthy controls (n = 2,465).. Results: The SNP309G allele was associated with elevated OR for ovarian cancer in BRCA1 mutation carriers (SNP309TG: OR 1.53; CI 1.07-2.19; p = 0.020; SNP309GG: OR 1.92; CI 1.19-3.10; p = 0.009; SNP309TG+GG combined: OR 1.61; CI 1.15-2.27; p = 0.005). In contrast, the SNP285C allele reduced risk of BRCA1 related ...

OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of vitamin D status with all-cause mortality in a Norwegian population and the potential influences of existing chronic diseases on the association. DESIGN A population-based prospective cohort study. SETTING Nord-Trøndelag County, Norway. PARTICIPANTS A random sample (n=6613) of adults aged 20 years or older in a cohort. METHODS Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels were measured in blood samples collected at baseline (n=6377). Mortality was ascertained from the Norwegian National Registry. Cox regression models were applied to estimate the HRs with 95% CIs for all-cause mortality in association with serum 25(OH)D levels after adjustment for a wide spectrum of confounding factors as well as chronic diseases at baseline. RESULTS The median follow-up time was 18.5 years, during which 1539 subjects died. The HRs for all-cause mortality associated with the first quartile level of 25(OH)D (|34.5 nmol/L) as compared with the fourth quartile (≥58.1

AIM: To describe cardiorespiratory fitness and body mass index (BMI) values in a representative population of 9-year-old Norwegian children in two rural communities and compare present values with previous findings. METHODS: Two hundred and fifty-nine 9-year-old children were invited, and 256 participated in this study. Maximal oxygen uptake was directly measured during a continuous progressive treadmill protocol. Body mass and height were also measured. RESULTS: The mean +/- SD relative maximal oxygen uptake was 52.8 +/- 6.5 for boys and 46.9 +/- 7.2 mL/kg/min for girls. Eight percent of the boys and 16.8% of the girls were classified as overweight, and 1.6% of the boys and 6.9% of the girls as obese. Mean age, body mass, height and Ponderal index were not significantly different between sexes. Girls had a higher BMI than boys (p = 0.05). CONCLUSION: Compared to earlier Norwegian studies, childrens BMI values seem to have increased substantially. This increase is most pronounced in girls. When ...
Background: The municipalities are responsible for the emergency primary health care services in Norway. These services include casualty clinics, primary doctors on-call and local emergency medical communication centres (LEMC). The National centre for emergency primary health care has initiated an enterprise called "The Watchtowers", comprising emergency primary health care districts, to provide routine information (patients way of contact, level of urgency and first action taken by the out-of-hours services) over several years based on a minimal dataset. This will enable monitoring, evaluation and comparison of the respective activities in the emergency primary health care services. The aim of this study was to assess incidence of emergency contacts (potential lifethreatening situations, red responses) to the emergency primary health care service. Methods: A representative sample of Norwegian emergency primary health care districts, "The Watchtowers" recorded all contacts and first action ...

The majority of control subjects (n = 1,015) were women with a negative mammogram from the Tromsø Mammography and Breast Cancer Study conducted in 2001 and 2002. About 70% of the women, 55 to 71 years of age, residing in the municipality of Tromsø in Norway and attending the Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program at the University Hospital of North Norway agreed to participate (19). The study was approved by the National Data Inspection Board and the Regional Committee for Medical Research Ethics. In addition, we included healthy woman (n = 109), 55 to 72 years of age, participating in the Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program in Bergen in 1999, with two negative mammogram during a 2-year period (20). From this latter group, women with p.o. hormone replacement therapy or history of diabetes or other endocrine disorders were excluded. The mean (range) ages for cases (n = 731) and controls (n = 1,124) in the Norwegian study were 56 (26-93) and 62 (55-72) years, respectively.. Polish ...

Y-chromosomal variation at five biallelic markers (Tat, YAP, 12f2, SRY(10831) and 92R7) and nine multiallelic short tandem repeat (STR) loci (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS385I/II and DYS388) in a Norwegian population sample are presented. The material consists of 1766 unrelated males of Norwegian origin. The geographical distribution of the population sample reflects fairly well the population distribution around the year 1942, which is the median birth year of the index persons. Seven hundred and twenty-one different Y-STR haplotypes but 726 different lineages (Y-STRs plus biallelic markers) were encountered. We observed six known (P*(xR1a), BR(xDE, J, N3, P), R1a, N3, DE, J), and one previously undescribed haplogroup (probably a subgroup within haplogroup P*(xR1a)). Four of the haplogroups (P*(xR1a), BR(xDE, J, N3, P), R1a and N3) represented about 98% of the population sample. The analysis of population pairwise differences indicates that the Norwegian ...
These are the main conclusions in a scientific opinion from The Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM), conducted at the request of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet).. Based on the premises described in the scientific opinion, previous international and national risk assessments, and published literature, the other conclusions drawn by VKM are:. - The critical adverse health effect of excess intake of vitamin A is teratogenicity. This effect is the basis for the tolerable upper intake level (UL) of 3000 µg RE/day.. - The most important source of vitamin A in the Norwegian population is diet, followed by food supplements and then cosmetics.. - Topical application of cosmetic products, as estimated in the standard scenarios (0.05% in body lotions and 0.3% in face and hand cream), increases the total exposure to vitamin A (retinol and retinyl esters) in all age groups.. The estimated contribution of retinol and retinyl esters from cosmetics is most prominent for ...
Singleton babies born after assisted fertilisation are at higher risk of low birth weight, preterm delivery, and perinatal death than spontaneously conceived ones⇑. But a new study suggests that this is mainly the result of factors associated with infertility rather than the technology itself.. A Norwegian population based cohort study, which compared perinatal outcomes in more than 1 200 000 singletons born as a result of spontaneous conception and more than 8000 singletons born after assisted conception, found that those born after assisted conception were lighter at birth (difference 25 g, 95% CI 14 to 35), had shorter duration of gestation (2.0 days, 1.6 to 2.3), and had an increased risk of perinatal death (odds ratio 1.31, 1.05 to 1.65) and being small for gestational age (1.26, 1.10 to 1.44).. However, when the researchers compared babies born to 2546 women who, in consecutive pregnancies, gave birth to a singleton after assisted conception and after spontaneous conception, they found ...

Emil Aas Stoltenberg (from August 2015), with Sven Ove Samuelsen and Nils LH as superviors. His Master project with Nils LH was completed in June 2015, with thesis title "The c-Loss Function: Balancing Total and Individual Risk in the Simultaneous Estimation of Poisson Means". It concerns simultaneous estimation of an ensemble of Poisson parameters, using different loss functions, where certain estimation strategies uniformly dominate the maximum likelihood procedure. He also works with empirical Bayes methods, yielding estimators that nonparametrically smooth towards e.g. given Poisson regression models. Emil holds a previous Masters degree in political science, with thesis title "Bayesian Forecasting of Election Results in Multiparty Systems". His political forecasting work put him in the news, and in several television programmes he was educating the Norwegian population on the ins and outs of the US presidential election processes when Trump won.

Rising workload in general practice has been a recent cause for concern in several countries; this is also the case in Norway. Long working hours and heavy workload seem to affect recruitment and retention of regular general practitioners (RGPs). We investigated Norwegian RGPs workload in terms of time used on patient-related office work, administrative work, municipality tasks and other professional activities in relation to RGPs, and gender, age, employment status and size of municipality. In early 2018, an electronic survey was sent to all 4716 RGPs in Norway. In addition to demographic background, the RGP reported minutes per day used on various tasks in the RGP practice prospectively during 1 week. Working time also included additional tasks in the municipality, other professional work and on out-of-hours primary health care. Differences were analysed by chi square test, independent t-tests, and one-way ANOVA. Among 1876 RGPs (39.8%), the mean total working hours per week was 55.6, while the mean

The national patient experience survey has been conducted annually in the period 2011-2013, and several domains shows improvement in patient experiences over time.. • Hospital inpatients in 2013 report better experiences than patients in 2011 on four domains (doctor services, nursing services, organization, information), and better experiences than patients in 2012 on two domains (organization, information).. • As previous years patients in 2013 reported best experiences on the indicators related to patient safety, nursing services, doctor services and next-of-kin.. • The survey shows that hospitals have improvement potential from the patient perspective, especially related to discharge preparation, co-operation with services in the municipality, waiting time for elective patients and organization. These are the same domains as in previous surveys.. • The survey confirms significant variation in patient experiences between hospitals.. ...
Ivar Asbjørn Følling (23 August 1888 - 24 January 1973) was a Norwegian physician and biochemist who first described the disease named after him-Føllings disease-which is better known outside of Norway as phenylketonuria or, for short, PKU. He was born in Kvam, Steinkjer. Følling studied chemistry at The Norwegian Institute of Technology in Trondheim and graduated in 1916. He then went to the Kristiania University in Oslo, graduating in medicine in 1922. He received his medical doctorate (somewhat like a PhD in Medicine) in 1929 after doing postgraduate work in Norway and abroad (in Denmark, England, Vienna and the U.S.). Starting in 1932 Følling occupied a series of medical posts in Oslo, culminating in his being Professor of Biochemistry and Physician-in-Chief at the central laboratory at the Rikshospitalet, which is the Norwegian national research hospital. He retired in 1958. In 1934 at Rikshospitalet, Følling saw a young woman named Borgny Egeland. She had two children, Liv and Dag, ...
In the HUNT study all residents of Nord-Trondelag County, Norway aged 20 years and older, were invited to participate in a health screening during 1995-1997. Dr. Berle focused on the 8,269 participants aged 20-30 years who were screened for psychiatric symptoms using the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS). He and his coinvestigators retrieved birth data for all of these participants from the Medical Birth Registry of Norway Individuals who were small for gestational age (SCA) were 37% more likely to meet HADS criteria for an anxiety disorder and! or depression as young adults than participants who hadnt been SGA. Adjustment for gender, education, and socioeconomic status attenuated this association only slightly as SGA individuals were at an adjusted 29% increased risk of depression and/or an anxiety disorder ...
Results There were 9,271 maternal and 9,889 paternal deaths within the follow-up period of 1984-2009. The associations of all-cause, CVD and cancer mortality with parents own BMI were substantially nonlinear, with elevated mortality at both extremes and minima at 21-25 kg m-2. Hazard ratios for all-cause mortality per standard deviation (4.1 kg m-2) of own BMI were 1.04 (95% CI: 1.02, 1.06) and 1.05 (1.02, 1.08) in mothers and fathers, respectively. In contrast, associations of mortality with offspring BMI were approximately linear and positive. Causal hazard ratios per standard deviation of BMI estimated from the instrumental variable analyses were 1.20 (1.11, 1.30) and 1.11 (1.02, 1.22) for all-cause mortality in mothers and fathers, respectively. For CVD they were 1.26 (1.13, 1.41) and 1.15 (1.01, 1.30), and for cancer they were 1.23 (1.05, 1.45) and 1.07 (0.90, 1.27). ...

The outcome of pregnancies in six countries in Norway has been studied during 12 months prior and subsequent to the Chernobyl accident. The accident took place in a period with an annual increase of births of approximately 3%. However, the year after the accident a decrease of 0.7% was observed with particularly low numbers during February--April 1987. Concomitantly, the miscarriage fraction of all pregnancies increased by 16.3% and particularly during November 1986--January 1987. The same pattern was found when observations from Haukeland Hospital were analyzed separately. When the time of conception was taken into consideration we found that conceptions during the period May--July 1986 ended more often as miscarriages. We have no explanation of the observations. The external radiation exposure seems too small to have produced these effects. The internal radiation from food may have played a role.
