Potential roles of Helicobacter pylori treatment, bodymassindex and waist circumference in the causation of erosive esophagitis: a randomized clinical trial (HEROES-GERD) In recent decades, the prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and obesity has been increasing while Helicobacter pylori infection has been decreasing.To evaluate if H. pylori treatment, excess body weight and other anthropometric measurements are associated with incident erosive esophagitis, as a secondary (...) % (380/404) of patients. The 12-month follow-up esophagitis rates for overweight and normal body weight patients were 13.6% (29/213) and 6.0% (10/167), respectively (p = 0.015); rates for patients with and without increased baseline waist circumference were 15.4% (24/156) and 6.7% (15/224), respectively (p = 0.006). Following logistic regression, only the combination of increased baseline bodymassindex and waist, but not H. pylori treatment, was independently associated with new-onset esophagitis

Bodymassindex and the risk of mortality among Chinese adults with Type 2 diabetes To examine the associations between BMI and the risks of all-cause, cardiovascular disease (CVD)-specific and cancer-specific mortality among people with Type 2 diabetes, and thus provide recommendations for weight management in the population.This retrospective cohort study was conducted among 52 763 people with newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetes between 1 January 2004 and 31 December 2014 in Shanghai, China. All
Relationship between bodymassindex, body image, and fear of negative evaluation: Moderating role of self-esteem This study examined the correlation between bodymassindex as independent variable, and body image and fear of negative evaluation as dependent variables, as well as the moderating role of self-esteem in these correlations. A total of 318 Malaysian young adults were conveniently recruited to do the self-administered survey on the demographic characteristics body image, fear (...) of negative evaluation, and self-esteem. Partial least squares structural equation modeling was used to test the research hypotheses. The results revealed that bodymassindex was negatively associated with body image, while no such correlation was found with fear of negative evaluation. Meanwhile, the negative correlation of bodymassindex with body image was stronger among those with lower self-esteem, while a positive association of bodymassindex with fear of negative evaluation was significant only
Influence of lifestyle factors on BodyMassIndex in preschoolers in Behbahan city, southwest Iran, 2016 The bodymassindex (BMI) of Iranian preschoolers is noticeably increasing. Thus, studying the factors influencing BMI in preschool children is crucial. The purpose of this study was to identify the effects of lifestyle factors on BMI of preschool children, residing in Behbahan city, southwest Iran, in 2016.A total of 120 preschool children, aged 4 to 6 years, participated in this cross (...) activity and screen time affected the BMI (p<0.05), and the duration of physical activity had inverse relationship with obesity, and screen time was directly related to obesity.Understanding the factors affecting the BMI of preschool children can inform the development of interventions to impact children's weight-related behavior and it can be used as the basis for future healthy body weight policies. Efforts to lower the obesity rate of preschoolers should be focused on the lifestyle behaviors
Socioeconomic inequalities in childhood and adolescent body-massindex, weight, and height from 1953 to 2015: an analysis of four longitudinal, observational, British birth cohort studies Socioeconomic inequalities in childhood body-massindex (BMI) have been documented in high-income countries; however, uncertainty exists with regard to how they have changed over time, how inequalities in the composite parts (ie, weight and height) of BMI have changed, and whether inequalities differ
The power of social networks and social support in promotion of physical activity and bodymassindex among African American adults Social support and social networks can elucidate important structural and functional aspects of social relationships that are associated with health-promoting behaviors, including Physical Activity (PA) and weight. A growing number of studies have investigated the relationship between social support, social networks, PA and obesity specifically among African (...) Americans; however, the evidence is mixed and many studies focus exclusively on African American women. Most studies have also focused on either functional or structural aspects of social relationships (but not both) and few have objectively measured moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and bodymassindex (BMI). Cross-sectional surveys of adult African American men and women living in two low-income predominantly African American neighborhoods in Pittsburgh, PA (N = 799) measured numerous
How does grazing relate to bodymassindex, self-compassion, mindfulness and mindful eating in a student population? Contemporary research investigating obesity has focused on grazing (i.e. an uncontrolled and repetitive consumption of small amounts of food). Meanwhile, constructs such as mindfulness, mindful eating and self-compassion have received much attention in assisting individuals with eating behaviours and weight regulation. The association between those constructs and grazing, however

Influence of bodymassindex on the therapeutic efficacy of gemcitabine plus cisplatin and overall survival in lung squamous cell carcinoma Gemcitabine plus cisplatin (GP) is commonly used to treat lung squamous cell carcinoma (SCC); however, it is not clear which subgroup of lung SCC patients could benefit most from GP treatment. We explored the predictive factors in lung SCC patient cohorts.Seventy-eight lung SCC patients treated with a first-line GP regimen were enrolled (...) in this retrospective cohort study. Progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Classification tree models were used to explore the risk factors for PFS and OS in these patients.The median PFS and OS in SCC patients treated with a GP regimen were 6.0 and 13.6 months, respectively. Three terminal subgroups were formed for both PFS and OS. The subgroup with a bodymassindex (BMI) > 23.94 kg/m2 and aged ≤ 54.5 had the longest PFS (9.0 months); the subgroup
Beneficial Effects of ragi (Finger Millet) on Hematological Parameters, BodyMassIndex, and Scholastic Performance among Anemic Adolescent High-School Girls (AHSG). Adolescence is a period characterized by rapid physical, emotional, and mental growth and changes potentially resulting in health challenges. Anemia, which is a fairly common complication in this age group, is reported to negatively affect the cognitive ability of adolescents. Traditionally, ragi (Finger millet: Eleusine coracana (...) ), a cereal available in India, has been recommended as nutritional supplement to combat anemia because of its high protein and mineral content as well as anti-microbial property. This study sought to establish the effect of ragi in improving hematological parameters, bodymassindex, and scholastic performance among adolescent school girls. Sixty adolescent girls were randomly selected and divided into intervention (n = 30) and control groups (n = 30). The effect of dietary supplementation of ragi
Impact of Misclassification of Obesity by BodyMassIndex on Mortality in Patients With CKD Unlike the general population, a higher bodymassindex (BMI) is associated with greater survival among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This "obesity paradox" may be due to limitations of BMI as a measure of adiposity in CKD. Both BMI and body fat percentage (BF%) are used to classify obesity, but outcomes may vary. Therefore, we investigated the 2 different cutoffs for diagnosing obesity (...) (BMI ≥28 kg/m2 or BF% >25% for men and >35% for women) and the impact on all-cause mortality in CKD.A total of 326 patients with non-dialysis-dependent CKD were prospectively followed for a median of 4.9 years (range 2.9-5.3). BF% and lean bodymass were determined using the Body Composition Monitor, a novel multifrequency bioimpedance spectroscopy device. Covariates included age, gender, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, estimated glomerular filtration rate, proteinuria, and high-sensitivity C
