    Abstract : Type 2 Diabetes is a disorder that increases globally, but mainly in the western world. One of the hallmarks of Type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance in the target tissues of insulin action (adipose tissue, liver and skeletal muscle). In addition, most patients with Type 2 diabetes are obese. READ MORE

  3. 3. Occupational health risks in dentistry - musculoskeletal disorders and neuropathy in relation to exposure to physical workload, vibrations and mercury

    University dissertation from Ingrid Åkesson, Yrkes- och miljömedicinska kliniken, Universitetsjukhuset, 221 85 Lund

    Author : Ingrid Åkesson; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; prospective follow-up study .; cross-sectional; inclinometer; electrogoniometer; EMG; physical exposure; tactilometry; physical examination; diagnoses; neck upper limb; sensorineural; Key words: Dentistry; musculoskeletal; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin;

    Abstract : The aim of the thesis was to focus on the occupational health risks in dentistry with emphasis on musculoskeletal disorders in the neck and upper limbs and neuropathy in the hands, in relation to exposure to physical workload, vibration and mercury. An increased high frequency of long-lasting and wide-spread musculoskeletal symptoms in the neck and shoulder regions (58-75% during the past 12 months) was found in dentists and dental hygienists compared to different referent groups; furthermore, wrist/hand (46-59%) and hip (19-27%) disorders as well in female dentists and dental hygienists.

  4. 4. Islet constitutive nitric oxide synthase and nitric oxide production. Modulatory effects on insulin and glucagon secretion

    University dissertation from Björn Åkesson, Department of Pharmacology, Sölvegatan 10, S-223 62 LUND, Sweden

    Author : Björn Åkesson; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pharmacognosy; Pharmacological sciences; mouse; carbachol; muscarinic agonist; cyclic nucleotides; calcium-fluxes; NOS-inhibitors; in vitro and in vivo; insulin and glucagon secretion; Nitric oxide NO ; constitutive nitric oxide synthase cNOS ; pharmacy; toxicology; Farmakologi; farmakognosi; farmaci; toxikologi; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to elucidate the role of nitric oxide (NO) in the transduction signalling of insulin and glucagon release by stimulating or inhibiting islet endogenous NO-production as well as by using NO donors. Insulin release stimulated by L-arginine, the substrate for constitutive NO-synthase (cNOS)-catalyzed NO-production, was increased by the selective NOS-inhibitor NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) and suppressed by the intracellular NO donor hydroxylamine.

  5. 5. Cadmium exposure and iron status

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Enviromental Medicine

    Author : Agneta Åkesson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; environmental exposure; biological monitoring; bioavailability; pregnancy; cadmium; iron deficiency; hemochromatosis; dietary intake; soluble transferrin receptor; serum ferritin;

    Abstract : People are exposed to cadmium, a ubiquitous toxic metal, mainly via basic foods such as cereals and vegetables. Cadmium accumulates in the kidney, and renal tubular damage is considered the critical effect. Recently, association with osteoporosis at environmental exposure levels was indicated. READ MORE
