  1. 1. Reduced Preoperative Fasting in Children

    Author : Hanna Andersson; Peter Frykholm; Mark Thomas; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fasting; Children; Preoperative; Pulmonary Aspiration; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : Preoperative fasting is recommended in order to reduce the risk of perioperative pulmonary aspiration. However, preoperative fasting may have negative effects on patient wellbeing and homeostasis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Orexins, Guanylins and Feeding on Duodenal Bicarbonate Secretion and Enterocyte Intracellular Signaling

    Author : Magnus Wilhelm Bengtsson; Gunnar Flemström; Olof Nylander; Karl E. O. Åkerman; Per M. Hellström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Physiology; alkaline secretion; carbohydrates; central nervous system; cholinergic stimulation; duodenum; enteric nervous system; enterochromaffin cell; fasting; feeding; glucose; guanylyl cyclase C; humans; hypocretin; intra-arterial; in situ; intracerebroventricular; luminal acid; luzindole; orexin-B; SB-334867; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The duodenal epithelium secretes bicarbonate ions and this is regarded as the primary defence mechanism against the acid discharged from the stomach. For an efficient protection, the duodenum must also function as a sensory organ identifying luminal factors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Glycerol kinase deficiency. Clinical, biochemical, and genetic aspects

    Author : Christina Hellerud; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : contiguous gene syndrome; diagnose; exercise; fasting; glucose deficit; glycerol; glycerol kinase deficiency; metabolism; molecular modelling; mRNA analysis; mutation; natural history; prognosis; splice-junction analysis; treatment; triglycerides;

    Abstract : Glycerol kinase deficiency (GKD, MIM 307030) is an X-linked recessive inborn error of metabolism occurring isolated or in an Xp contiguous gene syndrome with adrenal hypoplasia and/or Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The gene syndrome is due to deletions in the p21 region on the X chromosome. READ MORE

  4. 4. Risk factors for atrial fibrillation in population-based studies : Epidemiological perspectives

    Author : Linda Johnson; Internmedicin - epidemiologi; []
    Keywords : Atrial fibrillation; Fasting plasma insulin; forced expiratory volume; glucose; hypertension; lung volumes; population; premature atrial contractions; risk factors; spirometry; supraventricular extrasystoles; supraventricular tachycardias systolic blood pressure; weight;

    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is common among the elderly, and has serious consequences such as stroke and increased mortality. Not all of the population attributable risk for AF is explained by known risk factors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Trends in obesity and type 2 diabetes : ethnic aspects and links to adipokines

    Author : Mikael Lilja; Stefan Söderberg; Olov Rolandsson; Mats Eliasson; Kurt Svärdsudd; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Type 2 diabetes; leptin; adiponectin; obesity; abdominal obesity; epidemiology; ethnicity; fasting glucose; post-load glucose; Family Medicine; allmänmedicin;

    Abstract : Objective The prevalence of obesity and related diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is increasing worldwide, and the Asian Indian population seems to be particularly susceptible to developing T2DM, even at a low body mass index (BMI). In Sweden, the age-adjusted prevalence of diabetes has not increased despite increasing self-reported obesity. READ MORE
