  2. 2. On diet in ankylosing spondylitis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Björn Sundström; Solveig Wållberg-Jonsson; Gunnar Johansson; Margaretha Haugen; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diet; ankylosing spondylitits; omega-3; cardiovascular; reumatologi; rheumatology;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to examine the role of diet in ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Patients were examined in: i) a postal questionnaire survey of dietary habits and gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms; ii) a study on biomarkers of diet and disease activity; iii) a comparison of cardiovascular risk factors with the general population using data from the Västerbotten Intervention Programme (VIP), and; iv) a 21-week omega-3 fatty acid supplementation study regarding the effects on disease activity.

    Abstract : Diabetic long-term complications, despite intensive treatment, cause serious handicaps at relatively young age in diabetic patients. Diabetic nephropathy (DN) develops in up to 30% of patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D). READ MORE

  4. 4. Diet and postmenopausal breast cancer - With a focus on low-grade inflammation

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Joana Alves Dias; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oxidative stress; low-grade inflammation; Biomarkers of inflammation; cytokines; ICC; variation; diet; dietary recommendations; diet quality index; food patterns; reduced rank regression; obesity; CVD; postmenopausal breast cancer; epidemiology; cross sectional; nested case-control;

    Abstract : Diet-breast cancer studies have shown that “healthy eating patterns” are associated with decreased risk whereas unhealthy patterns (especially those including alcohol) are associated with increased risk, particularly in postmenopausal women. The potential mechanisms behind the observed associations are still under investigation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Interaction between dietary factors and genetic risk for lipoprotein traits and cardiovascular disease

    Abstract : In previous studies, a high quality diet has been associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared to a low diet quality, and specific “healthy” diet components, such as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), have been hypothesized to reduce the risk of CVD. However, results from epidemiological studies have been conflicting. READ MORE
