  1. 1. Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 and the Insulin Resistance Syndrome

    Author : Liisa Byberg; Anders Hamsten; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; PAI-1; insulin sensitivity; physical activity; birth weight; fatty acids; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Geriatrics; geriatrik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, different aspects of the insulin resistance syndrome in relation to plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) activity are investigated in a longitudinal population-based study. Participants were men investigated at ages 50 and 70 with follow-up data on mortality. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fall-Related Hip Fracture : Predisposing and Precipitating Factors

    Author : Breiffni Leavy; Liisa Byberg; Anna Cristina Åberg; Michaëlsson Karl; Melhus Håkan; Ann Bremander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Co-existing disease; Epidemiology; Fall circumstances; Hip fracture; In-depth interviews; Mixed methods; Physical activity perceptions; Psychotropic drugs; Qualitative; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi; Epidemiologi; Epidemiology; Geriatrics; Geriatrik; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi;

    Abstract : A physically inactive lifestyle is a predisposing risk factor for fall-related hip fracture. The circumstances, or precipitating factors, surrounding hip fractures are, however, not well understood, a factor of relevance for Swedish adults who have one of the highest hip fracture risks in the world.

  3. 3. Insights into the Effects of Type 2 Diabetes on Bone Health

    Author : Adam Mitchell; Liisa Byberg; Karl Michaëlsson; Tove Fall; Håkan Melhus; Ann Schwartz; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Epidemiologi; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : Individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have an increased risk of hip fracture, despite a stable or even greater bone mineral density (BMD). Bone area is linked to hip fracture risk independent of BMD and smaller bone area has been reported in T2DM subjects at the radius and tibia, but information at the hip is lacking. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dog Ownership and Cardiovascular Disease

    Author : Mwenya Mubanga; Tove Fall; Liisa Byberg; Erik Ingelsson; Unnur Valdimarsdottir; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : dog ownership; cardiovascular risk; cardiovascular disease; pet ownership; Epidemiologi; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : The relationship between pet ownership and human health has been studied extensively; however, the effect of dog ownership on human health has had conflicting results. The overall aim of this research project was to investigate the impact of dog ownership, and the death of the dog, on human cardiovascular health and all-cause mortality. READ MORE

  5. 5. Epidemiology of Physical Activity and Fragility Fractures

    Author : Karl Stattin; Liisa Byberg; Jonas Björk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; physical activity; fracture; fragility fracture; epidemiology; cohort study; proteomic; walking; exercise; cross-country skiing; skiing; Vasaloppet.; Epidemiologi; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : Fragility fractures mainly affect elderly individuals and often cause long term pain, loss of function and higher mortality rates. Physical activity improves balance, increases muscle strength and bone mineral density, and may reduce the risk of fragility fractures. READ MORE
