To examine if employees with higher nutrition knowledge have better diet quality and lower prevalence of hypertension.

Method

Cross-sectional baseline data were obtained from a workplace complex dietary intervention trial. Participants included 828 randomly selected employees (18-64 years) recruited from four multinational manufacturing workplaces in Ireland, 2013.

Background

There is little research on overall cardiovascular (CV) health among couples. Our aim was to examine concordance levels for CV health among couples, using the American Heart Association ideal health metrics, and to investigate if the CV health of an individual is associated with that of his or her partner.

Hypothesis:There is a positive association between the overall cardiovascular health of an individual and that of his/her partner. Methods

Abstract

Background Despite recommendations that central obesity assessment should be employed as a marker of cardiometabolic health, no consensus exists regarding measurement protocol. This study examined a range of anthropometric variables and their relationships with cardiometabolic features and type 2 diabetes in order to ascertain whether measurement site influences discriminatory accuracy. In particular, we compared waist circumference (WC) measured at two sites: (1) below the lo...

Abstract

Electronic health records (EHR)support clinical management, administration, quality assurance, research, and service planning. The aim of this study was to evaluate a clinical data management programme to improve consistency, completeness and accuracy of EHR information in a large primary care centre with 10 General Practitioners (GPs). A Clinical Data Manager was appointed to implement a Data Management Strategy which involved coding consultations using ICPC-2 coding, tailored suppo...

There is an ongoing need for contemporary data on the prevalence of T2DM within Ireland.  This could help formulate strategies that further develop effective diabetes prevention, detection and management.

Aims

The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of undiagnosed and diagnosed T2DM in middle-aged Irish adults and compare features in order to investigate why certain individuals remain undetected. In particular, we determined the extent to which the probability of diag...

Abstract

Aims/hypothesis

Insulin resistance is commonly proposed as a precursor to both type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD), yet few studies have directly compared insulin resistance with both outcomes simultaneously and determined whether associations with each outcome differ in strength or are comparable. We assessed the association of fasting insulin and HOMA-IR with incident CVD and diabetes in older people.

Methods

In the long-term follow-up of the Prospective...

Abstract

Purpose

The health, well-being and quality of life of the world’s 1.2 billion adolescents are global priorities. A focus on their patterns or profiles of time-use and how these relate to health-related quality of life (HRQoL) may help to enhance their well-being and address the increasing burden of non-communicable diseases in adulthood. This study sought to establish whether distinct profiles of adolescent 24-h time-use exist and to examine the relationship of any identified...
