BACKGROUND: Hypertension has become a global health challenge given its high prevalence and but low awareness and detection. Whether the actual prevalence of hypertension has been estimated is important, especially for the poor. This study aimed to measure tested prevalence and self-reported prevalence of hypertension and compare the inequity between them in China. METHODS: Data were derived from China Health and Nutrition Survey (CHNS) conducted in 2011. By using the multistage, stratified, random sampling method, 12,168 respondents aged 18 or older were identified for analysis. Both tested prevalence (systolic blood pressure ≥ 140 mmHg or/and diastolic blood pressure ≥ 90 mmHg or /and current use any of antihypertensive medication) and self-reported prevalence (ever diagnosed with hypertension by a doctor) were used to measure the prevalence of hypertension. The concentration index was employed to measure the extent of inequality in tested prevalence and self-reported prevalence. A ...
This is a list of countries (and some territories) by the annual prevalence of cocaine use as percentage of the population aged 15-64 (unless otherwise indicated). The primary sources of information are the World Drug Report 2014 (WDR 2014), and the World Drug Report 2006 (WDR 2006), published by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). The indicator is the "annual prevalence" rate which is the percentage of the youth and adult population who have consumed the drug at least once in the past year.

HIV prevalence at any given age is the difference between the cumulative numbers of people that have become infected with HIV up to this age minus the number who have died, expressed as a percentage of the total number alive at this age. At older ages, changes in HIV prevalence are slow to reflect changes in the rate of new infections (HIV incidence) because the average duration of infection is long. Declines in HIV prevalence can reflect saturation of infection among those individuals who are most vulnerable, and rising mortality, rather than behaviour change. Increases in HIV prevalence can reflect increasing numbers of individuals receiving antiretroviral therapy, and living longer. However at younger ages, trends in HIV prevalence are a better indication of recent trends in HIV incidence and risk behaviour since young people are likely to only recently have initiated sexual or injecting drug behaviours. In addition, young people who have recently been infected with HIV are not likely to have ...
The aim of this study was to analyze the prevalence of chronic diseases in women of childbearing age and investigate the influence of these diseases on pregnancy and birth. This analysis is the first population-based study in which all chronic diseases could be taken into consideration. In the SNiP, every fifth pregnant woman suffers from at least one chronic disease, and higher prevalence rates have been reported in the literature. In an American study analyzing 6.294 women of childbearing age, 26.6% of the participants had one of the more prevalent chronic diseases. In contrast, 39.1% of all women who were not pregnant reported that they were chronically ill [8]. The population-based prevalences rates in the SNiP data are consistently lower than those found in the literature. However, in this study the prevalence rates in young mothers have been contrasted to all women in childbearing age. The prevalence of some chronic diseases is lower during pregnancy (e.g., epilepsy, asthma, and some other ...
Diabetes prevalence data for adults (≥20 years of age) were derived from studies meeting the following criteria: a defined, population-based sample and diagnosis of diabetes based on optimal WHO criteria (a venous plasma glucose concentration of ,11.1 mmol/l 2 h after a 75-g glucose tolerance test). The exceptions to the latter criterion were the study in China, for which a test meal was used (4), and the study in Tanzania (5), in which fasting glucose alone gave a higher prevalence of diabetes than a previous study that used the optimal WHO criteria.. Prevalence estimates for type 1 diabetes for people ,20 years of age for individual countries were estimated from available incidence data using methods described in the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Diabetes Atlas 2000 (6). Population-based data are not available for type 2 diabetes in people ,20 years of age, and this group has been excluded from these estimates.. Age- and sex-specific estimates for diabetes prevalence were ...

This study is among the first systematic attempts to estimate the prevalence of COPD across the world regions using spirometry-based data. The estimates presented here are based on the age range starting from 30 years, while many of the previous reviews were based on people aged 40 years or older. An appreciable prevalence of COPD has been reported in younger population groups, adding to uncertainties over the current epidemiological situation globally.. In the current study, we estimated a global prevalence of 10.7% (7.3%-14.0%) in 1990 and 11.7% (8.4%-15.0%) in 2010, corresponding to 227 and 384 million of affected cases in 1990 and 2010, respectively. This estimate is an order of magnitude higher than the one presented in the 2001 World Health Report, estimating a world-wide prevalence of COPD of 10.1 per 1000 population (12.1 per 1000 men and 8.1 per 1000 women) [157]. A 2006 global review conducted by Halbert and colleagues reported a pooled prevalence of 9.2% (7.2-11.0), based on 26 ...
In South Africa, persistence of the HIV epidemic and associated gender and racial disparities is a major concern after more than 20 years of democratic dispensation and efforts to create a more healthy and equal society. This paper profiles HIV prevalence and related factors among Black African men and women compared to other race groups in South Africa using the 2012 population-based national household HIV survey. This secondary data analysis was based on the 2012 population-based nationally representative multi-stage stratified cluster random household sample. Bivariate and multiple logistic regression analysis were used to assess the relationship between HIV prevalence and associated factors by gender and racial profile. Overall HIV prevalence was significantly higher (p | 0.001) among both Black African males (16.6%; 95% CI: 15.0-18.4) and females (24.1%; 95% CI: 22.4-26.0) compared to their counterparts from other races. Among Black African males, increased risk of HIV was significantly associated
This study demonstrated statistically significant differences in the sensitivities, specificities and positive likelihood ratios between the high- and low-prevalence populations (table 2), providing evidence that the diagnostic performance of junior doctors in interpreting x-rays does vary with prevalence. There was evidence that the sensitivity depended on the x-rays being interpreted, and although such dependence could not be demonstrated for individual x-ray types (due to sample size), it was demonstrated for broader categories of x-rays. Since the x-ray type is an indicator of the type of target disorder and therefore patient, this implies that the diagnostic performance does depend to some degree on both the type of x-ray being interpreted and the target disorder being sought.. However, this was an independent effect: analysis of the interaction between prevalence and x-ray group was not significant. The effect of the junior doctors performance varying with prevalence occurred irrespective ...

The International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood (ISAAC) was designed to compare prevalence of asthma and allergy between populations in different countries and trends over time. Phase I showed considerable variations in the prevalence of current wheeze and in this months Thorax Pearce and colleagues report phase III of the ISAAC study where the phase I survey was repeated after an interval of 5-10 years. The results of phase III show that international differences in asthma symptom prevalence have reduced, especially in the 13-14 age group, with decreases in Western Europe and in English speaking countries. There was an increase in prevalence in regions where previously there was low prevalence, such as Latin America. This important and intriguing study shows that there is still an overall rise in the global burden of asthma probably due to increased awareness, although prevalence differences have lessened ...
The data needs to be interpreted with caution, especially for the less frequent conditions, as the uncertainty intervals associated with these figures is quite wide.. A decline is observed in prevalence of visual impairment for each of the eye conditions except Diabetic Retinopathy and the various eye conditions collated under the Other category, where the crude prevalence increased. The considerable increase in the prevalence of diabetes in recent years has contributed to this and the data suggests that eye health services are not managing to keep up with the rising prevalence of diabetes.. The decline in the prevalence of Trachoma is particularly encouraging over the 25-year period. In contrast, given that Uncorrected Refractive Error is the major cause of visual impairment, one would have wished for a greater decline in the prevalence of this condition - the Myopia epidemic is likely to be slowing this rate of decline.. ...

Discussion. The effects of social context on the nutritional status of populations We attempted to build explanatory models of wasting prevalence in children under 5 years of age for Africa, Latin America, and Asia using secondary datasets. The results suggested that explanatory models of wasting prevalence must differ across regions. In Asia, measures of the population disease burden (incidence of measles as an immediate factor, measures of environmental health (percentage of the population with access to safe water as an underlying factor), and measures of the presence of basic health services and mother- and child- caring practices (LBW as an underlying factor), explained 64% of the variability in wasting prevalence. More distal determinants of malnutrition, representing the distribution of resources in a society, were not predictive of wasting prevalence in Asia.. In Africa and Latin America, there seemed to be a time trend in wasting prevalence. In Africa, wasting prevalence approximately ...
Despite a marked increase in submitted data, there are still numerous countries lacking national prevalence data. There is a need to inform and motivate governments and agencies to collect, and report to WHO, national data on the prevalence of deficiency and, whenever possible, vitamin A programme coverage conditions prevailing at the time that population assessment data were collected. We hope that readers will find this report useful and feel free to share any comments with us ([email protected]). We also hope that this information will contribute to our common goal to eliminate vitamin A deficiency as a public health problem. ...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the trends in the incidence and prevalence rates of type 1 diabetes (T1D) among children and adolescents in the Netherlands. METHODS: A population-based cohort study was conducted in the Dutch PHARMO record linkage system (1998-2011). All children and adolescents aged ≤19 yr with at least one insulin dispensing ... read more (as a proxy for T1D) were identified and the numbers of incident and prevalent cases (numerators) were calculated. Overall age-adjusted (0-19 yr) incidence and prevalence rates together with age- and sex-specific rates of T1D and their 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated using data from the Dutch Central Bureau of Statistics as denominator. Trends over time were assessed using Joinpoint regression software (National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD, USA). RESULTS: In 2011, the overall age-adjusted incidence and prevalence rates of T1D were 25.2/100 000 (95% CI, 23.7-26.8) person-years (PY) and 174.4/100 000 (95% CI, 170.2-178.5) children, ...
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an important endocrine disorder of dogs. The objectives of this study were to estimate prevalence and incidence of DM in dogs, and to explore risk factors for DM and the survival of DM cases in primary-care clinics in the UK. A case-control study nested in the cohort of dogs (n = 480,469) aged ≥3 years presenting at 430 VetCompass clinics was used to identify risk factors for DM, using multivariable logistic regression. Overall 409 new and 863 pre-existing DM cases (total 1272) were identified in 2016, giving an apparent annual prevalence of 0.26% (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.25-0.28%), and an annual incidence risk of 0.09% (95%CI: 0.08-0.09%) in dogs aged ≥3 years. Factors associated with increased odds for DM diagnosis were all age categories | 8 years, female entire dogs (odds ratio (OR): 3.03, 95% CI 1.69-5.44, p | 0.001) and male neutered dogs (OR: 1.99, 95% CI 1.18-3.34, p = 0.010) compared to male entire dogs, Border Terriers (OR: 3.37, 95% CI 1.04-10.98, p = 0
The results of this study demonstrated prevalence of CKD stage 3 and 4-5 in patients with hypertension to be 33.2 and 4.3%, respectively. A decline in GFR in patients with hypertension was independently associated with cardiac and vascular complications which included CAD, stroke, PAD, and heart failure.. Prevalence of CKD has increased over the past 20 years [1] as a result of greater proportion of older people in the population and a corresponding increase in the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors, such as diabetes and hypertension [1]. Uncontrolled hypertension is a major risk factor for CKD and patients with CKD have an increased risk of hypertension not only from related stiffening of arteries, but also related to volume overload. A world-wide study showed that the prevalence of CKD significantly increases in patients at high risk for cardiovascular disease such as hypertension [15]. Prevalence of left ventricular hypertrophy was as high as 50% in patients with GFR less than 30 ...
The epidemiology, mortality, and use of hospital services of insulin-treated diabetes mellitus have been studied in Fyn County, Denmark (450,000 inhabitants). The overall prevalence rate was 3.6 and 3.3 per 1000 for men and women, respectively, and overall annual incidence rates have been estimated to be 15 and 11 per 100,000, respectively. Based on a mortality analysis, it is estimated that the overall mortality rate in this patient population is 4-5% per year. During follow-up, hospital admission rates were estimated to be 0.47 and 0.53 per patient person-yr for men and women, respectively; corresponding values for estimated number of hospital bed days used by the patients were 7.2 and 9.6 per person-yr. Only 26% of the patients (74% in the age class 0-9 yr) attended a diabetes outpatient clinic at the prevalence date (1 July 1973); the remaining patients were supervised by their general practitioner. Based on these figures, an epidemiologic model for insulin-treated diabetes has been ...
Self reported prevalence and health-seeking behavior for chronic conditions was compared with a similar survey conducted three years ago in the same population. We found that the prevalence rates of overall self-reported chronic conditions and that of diabetes and hypertension increased significantly in the last three years. Similar to the earlier study, the majority of the patients sought care from private sector and in fact we found significant increase in proportions of patients seeking care from private sector over the time.. The already high and rising prevalence of self-reported chronic conditions among poor is of great concern. Studies in India show that many chronic conditions (like, diabetes and hypertension) remains undiagnosed, and hence the actual prevalence of these conditions in population could be much higher [20, 22]. The awareness provided by the community health assistants about chronic conditions, diabetes and hypertension among people and healthcare providers in KG Halli over ...

A high overall prevalence of psychological distress (32.9 % and 81 % according to the K-10 score ≥28 and K-10 score ≥16, respectively) was found in this large sample of tuberculosis public primary care patients in South Africa. Caseness of psychological distress or common mental disorder was assessed using two different cut-offs (K-10 score ≥28 and K-10 score ≥16), as found in two different previous validation studies in South Africa [26, 27]. The uncertainty regarding the correct K-10 cut-off for this study group is a major limitation of this study.. Several studies showed that the K-10 had good psychometric properties [25, 26] and can discriminate between cases and non-cases reported in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) [15, 34]. The finding of 32.9 % to 81 % (using cut off scores of 28 and 16 respectively) the prevalence of psychological distress in this study is in line with the prevalence rates of depression or common mental disorders in most other ...

Results Prevalence of MDRD CKD stage 3-5 was 6% (5% in males, 7% in females). It varied with age, ranging from 1% of males and 2% of females aged 16-54 to 31% of males and 36% of females aged 75 and over. There was an inverse socio-economic gradient. CKD stage 4-5 (eGFR,30) was rare. Prevalence of CKDEPi was slightly lower especially in females and at younger ages. Prevalence of albuminuria was 9%, higher in males (10% vs 8%) and with a strong inverse socio-economic gradient in males. The overall prevalence of CKD stages 1-5 was 14% in males and 13% in females. Only 1.5% of males and 1.3% of females reported being told by a doctor they had CKD.. ...

The predictive value of a model can be confirmed by comparing its forecasts with real-world observations. The model was calibrated using HCV prevalence by age and gender in the year 2000, as reported by NHANES.[1] The incidence was back-calculated and the model was used to fit reported prevalence in 2000. Total prevalence in other years, prevalence and incidence by sequelae, and mortality were calculated. A 2010 incidence of 16,020 (13,510-19,510) was forecasted versus the reported incidence of 17,000.[29] The wide CI for incidence was driven by the large uncertainty in reported prevalence.[1] According to the study by Davis et al.,[15] HCV incidence peaked in 1989 when it was 11.5 times higher than the incidence in 1950. This corresponded to a peak incidence of 274,000 in a single year. A 2010 prevalence of 2.5 (2.1-3.2) million cases was estimated, matching the most recent NHANES data that showed 2.5 million cases in the 2009-2010.[30] In comparison, Davis et al.[15] reported an HCV prevalence ...

This study examined the prevalence rates of 13 bullying-related indicators in a population-based sample over 10 years. Survey data from nearly one-quarter of a million students indicated that bullying has remained a prevalent, although declining, experience for school-aged youth. Specifically, 13.4% to 28.8% of students reported experiencing bullying in the past month, and approximately half of the students reported witnessing bullying. These estimates are consistent with recent bullying-prevalence reports,8 and they add to the current literature with the inclusion of a younger sample of youth. Despite these fairly high prevalence rates, the covariate-adjusted results for 10 of the 13 indicators suggested things may be getting better, as indicated by a reduction in bullying prevalence and related attitudes. The effect sizes of the change were in the small-to-moderate range (ranged 0.04-0.67) when comparing the first and last years data.. Some forms of victimization were commonly and ...

NAFLD is a spectrum comprised of isolated steatosis, NASH, advanced fibrosis, and cirrhosis. The majority of NAFLD subjects do not have NASH and dont carry a significant risk for adverse outcomes (cirrhosis and mortality). Globally, the prevalence of NAFLD is approximately 25%. In Asia, a gradient of high prevalence rates to low rates are noted from urban to rural areas. Given the prevalence of NAFLD, the clinical and economic burden of NAFLD and NASH can be substantial. With increasing recognition as an important liver disease, the diagnosis of NASH still requires a liver biopsy which is suboptimal ...

Purpose: The World Health Organization (WHO) suggest that people at least 65 year old should perform 150 min physical activity (PA) per week in bouts of at least 10 minutes. The guidelines are based on predominantly studies with self-reported PA. We evaluated objective measures of PA on T2D prevalence and the WHO guidelines.. Methods: During 2012-2015, a total of 1939 (49% women) individuals, all 70 year old were included in a cross sectional study investigating risk factors for non-communicable diseases; the Healthy Ageing Initiative. Objective measures of PA was attained from accelerometers, worn for one week. T2D was defined by a fasting glucose of ≥7.0 mmol/L or a prior T2D diagnosis.. Results: Based on objectively measured PA, 39% of the studied population reached the minimum requirements for PA as stated by the WHO. Using logistic regression, the odds ratio (OR) for T2D when achieving the WHO recommendations was 0.94 (CI 0.68-1.30). By removing the 10 minute bout prerequisite, the OR ...

Results A total of 3051 (6.1%) participants reported a history of HD, and 525 (1.1%) and 3726 (7.5%) reported ever water-pipe or nass use, respectively. Heavy water-pipe smoking was significantly associated with HD prevalence (highest level of cumulative use vs never use, OR=3.75; 95% CI 1.52 to 9.22; p for trend=0.04). This association persisted when using different cut-off points, when restricting HD to those taking nitrate compound medications, and among never cigarette smokers. There was no significant association between nass use and HD prevalence (highest category of use vs never use, OR=0.91; 95% CI 0.69 to 1.20).. ...

In order to work out the number we need, we have to specify the true prevalence of people who will develop dementia, in the population being tested. In the tree diagram, this has been taken as 10%. The diagram shows that, out of 1000 people tested, there are 85 + 108 = 193 with a positive test result. Out ot this 193, rather more than half (108) are false positives, so if you test positive there is a 56% chance that its a false alarm (108/193 = 0.56). A false discovery rate of 56% is far too high for a good test. This figure of 56% seems to be the basis for a rather good post by NHS Choices with the title "Blood test for Alzheimers no better than coin toss If the prevalence were taken as 5% (a value thats been given for the over-60 age group) that fraction of false alarms would rise to a disastrous 73%. How are these numbers related to the claim that the test is 87% accurate? That claim was parroted in most of the media reports, and it is why Dr Pickett said one in 10 people would get an ...

In this "(near) zero-prevalence sensitive questions" technique, the authors include a couple of questions, the population prevalence of which (in Germany) is known to be (near) zero: whether the respondent has ever received an organ donation and whether the respondent suffered from Chagas disease. Lo and behold, they get significant positive prevalence for these events, around 4-8%, which are enough to cast doubt on the higher prevalence received on other items such as excessive drinking (12% over and above DQ). Again, this does not solve all the problems: the unrelated questions could be problematic (meaning that they dont produce the correct prevalence), "yes/no" is a bad design for some of these questions, which should include a "do not know" (say, for the Chagas question), the respondents ...

Not necessarily. It can do, in fact the recommendation is to test for it six months after injury, but it can also be a long-delayed consequence. Some people are diagnosed decades after head injury. In the case of a child, sexual problems would of course not show until adulthood.". Is it treatable?. "Yes! The missing hormones can be replaced regularly with synthetic hormones. For some people its a life-changer. For other people the results arent so dramatic, because head injury often causes other kinds of damage too, but certainly hormone replacement can restore your sex drive and make you able to conceive.". I had never heard of PTHP. Why is it so under-diagnosed?. "Well yes, it is catastrophically under-diagnosed. A neurosurgeon on a BBC medical programme recently estimated that there are between 500,000 and a million undiagnosed sufferers in the UK, which is a huge, huge number. Part of the problem is that neither doctors nor patients know about it. When you have a head injury - in the UK at ...
Forecasts are rarely sanguine. Diabetes incidence and prevalence are projected to increase as the general population gets older, bigger, and more racially diverse. (Age, obesity, and ethnic background constitute three important risk factors for diabetes.) Diabetes will result in higher rates of blindness, amputation, dialysis, stroke, myocardial infarction, and death. Onset of complications will occur at an earlier age as type 2 diabetes extends its reach to younger individuals. The burden to the individual and society will be enormous. Costs will soar.. Moreover, primary care physicians, already beseeched by every specialty organization to do more, will not have time to meet basic quality-of-care criteria. Estimates are that it would take a full-time primary care physician (panel size of 2,500) 7.4 hours/day to simply address basic preventive services in a typical practice setting.1 And that just includes those recommendations with a sound evidence base. New studies seem destined to conclude ...

OSA epidemiology and risk factors: The prevalence of OSA varies considerably between studies, mainly due to differences in the population studied, study designs, and the method and criteria used to diagnose OSA. A prevalence of 4% in men and 2% in women has traditionally been quoted in many populations. The prevalence from three well-conducted studies with similar design from Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Spain showed an OSA prevalence of 17-26% in men and 9-28% in women and a prevalence of 9-14% and 2-7% for men and women with moderate to severe OSA. These studies used a two-stage sampling design which allows some degree of estimate of the "self-selection" bias which is usually a significant problem in OSA studies.. Read More » ...

Our study is the largest prospective placebo controlled study of the cardiac effects of VEGFR-TKIs and the first in a non-cancer-bearing population. As such, our population presents a unique opportunity to study patients naïve to the effects of prior cardiotoxic regimens and with a relatively low baseline prevalence of CV disease. We found the incidence of significant LVEF decline occurring in the first 6 months of treatment in patients treated with sunitinib or sorafenib to be low. In sensitivity analyses using alternative definitions of cardiac dysfunction, this remained low, with only very modest differences when we considered person-years in our analyses. The number of late declines in LVEF was also not statistically different among the three groups.. It is critical to note that in E2805, patients were carefully screened and those with baseline CV comorbidities were excluded from study participation. As such, these patients may have a lower prevalence of CV disease compared to metastatic ...
Abstract: We investigate the least common multiple of all subdeterminants, lcmd(A x B), of a Kronecker product of matrices, of which one is an integral matrix A with two columns and the other is the incidence matrix of a complete graph with n vertices. We prove that this quantity is the least common multiple of lcmd(A) to the power n-1 and certain binomial functions of the entries of A ...
NAPSI)--When it comes to health, making positive lifestyle changes that include losing weight and being more active is a goal for many people. But often times, no matter how good the intentions, these changes only last a few weeks. Even if you know what to do to improve your health, figuring out how to do it and fitting it into your daily routine can present the biggest challenges. Making small changes-step by step-can go a long way to help you manage or even prevent many serious health problems and diseases, such as diabetes. For example, if you are at risk for type 2 diabetes, losing a small amount of weight (thats 10 to 15 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds) can help lower your chances of getting the disease. Try making small but gradual steps to be more active and follow a healthy meal plan. You can start by walking 10 minutes a day and gradually work up to 30 minutes a day, five days a week, and drink water instead of soda at each meal. If you have diabetes, making similar types of changes in ...
