  1. 1. Aspects of nutrition in geriatric patients - Especially dietary assessment, intake and requirements

    Author : Mats Persson Lintrup; Geriatrik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Validity.; Total energy expenditure; Reproducibility; Malnutrition; Geriatric patients; Fluid intake; Energy requirements; Doubly labelled water; Diet records; Aged; Dietary intake; Nutrition; Näringslära; Social medicine; Socialmedicin; samhällsmedicin;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to develop and test the feasibility of a dietary record routine, where nursing staff assess the patient’s food and fluid intake based on standardised portion sizes and household measurements. The energy intake (EI) was studied with a dietary record in 61 geriatric patients. READ MORE

  2. 2. Food habits in Swedish adolescents. Meal pattern, food choice and bioavailability of iron 1994 and 2000

    Author : Agneta Sjöberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adolescent nutrition; food habits; interview; meals; dietary iron; iron fortification; bioavailability; energy intake; energy expenditure; doubly labelled water;

    Abstract : The general iron fortification of white wheat flour was removed after 50 years of iron fortification. It was considered important to evaluate the effects of withdrawal of iron fortification among vulnerable groups in the population. Adolescents have high iron requirements for growth and the girls for menstrual losses. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Mediterranean dietary intervention study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis

    Author : Linda Hagfors; Gunnar Johansson; Margaretha Haugen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Rheumatoid arthritis; Mediterranean diet; fatty acids; antioxidants; diet history interview; biological markers; doubly labelled water; energy expenditure;

    Abstract : Case control studies have shown that a high consumption of fish, olive oil, and cooked vegetables is associated with a decreased risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis (RA). These foods have a central position in the traditional Cretan Mediterranean diet, and it has been suggested that dietary factors contribute to the low prevalence of RA in Mediterranean countries.

  4. 4. Studies on adipose tissue, body fat, body water and energy expenditure during the first four months of infancy using magnetic resonance imaging, skinfold measurements and the doubly labelled water method

    Author : Elisabeth Olhager; Kim Fleischer Michaelsen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : During recent years much interest has been focused on the relationship between early nutrition and the future health of humans. Poor growth during early life has been associated with impaired glucose tolerance and coronary heart disease later in life, while rapid weight gain in infancy has been associated with an increased risk of obesity during childhood.

  5. 5. Urea and Non-Protein Nitrogen Metabolism in Infants : With Special Reference to the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

    Author : Mary George; Sten Lindahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Urea; non-protein nitrogen metabolism; SIDS; drinking water nitrate concentration; carbon dioxide production; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : A large amount of non-protein nitrogen, in the form of urea and ammonium, is present in human breastmilk; however its physiological role in the infant is as yet not fully understood. It has been hypothesized that an insufficient enteric metabolism of urea could play a role in the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). READ MORE
