Associations Between Time Spent Using Social Media and Internalizing and Externalizing Problems Among US Youth

In adjusted analyses, use of social media for more than 3 hours per day compared with no use remained significantly associated with internalizing problems alone (>3 to ≤6 hours: RRR, 1.60; 95% CI, 1.11-2.31; >6 hours: RRR, 1.78; 95% CI, 1.15-2.77) and comorbid internalizing and externalizing problems (>3 to ≤6 hours: RRR, 2.01; 95% CI, 1.51-2.66; >6 hours: RRR, 2.44; 95% CI, 1.73-3.43) but not … Continue reading Associations Between Time Spent Using Social Media and Internalizing and Externalizing Problems Among US Youth

Risks of ischaemic heart disease and stroke in meat eaters, fish eaters, and vegetarians over 18 years of follow-up: results from the prospective EPIC-Oxford study

This difference was equivalent to 10 fewer cases of ischaemic heart disease (95% confidence interval 6.7 to 13.1 fewer) in vegetarians than in meat eaters per 1000 population over 10 years. The associations for ischaemic heart disease were partly attenuated after adjustment for self reported high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and body mass index (hazard ratio 0.90, 95% confidence interval 0.81 to 1.00 … Continue reading Risks of ischaemic heart disease and stroke in meat eaters, fish eaters, and vegetarians over 18 years of follow-up: results from the prospective EPIC-Oxford study

Foreword

Buongiorno! Guten Tag! Good Morning!
My name is Aldo, I am a physician and I live in Italy. I have always read a lot of medical news, and I have realised how difficult it is to forget to read those news if you’re not disciplined enough or if you don’t make that a habit. So I have decided to help myself and the community, here and on the Telegram app, and share just two articles daily, those that get my attention.

Buona Lettura! Continue reading Foreword

Population Impact Attributable to Modifiable Risk Factors for Hyperuricemia

BMI, alcohol intake, adherence to a DASH‐style diet, and diuretic use were all associated with serum urate levels and the presence of hyperuricemia in a dose‐response manner. The corresponding PARs of hyperuricemia cases for overweight/obesity (prevalence, 60%), non‐adherence to a DASH‐style diet (prevalence, 82%), alcohol use (prevalence, 48%), and diuretic use (prevalence, 8%) were 44% (95% CI, 41 to 48%), 9% (3% to 16%), 8% … Continue reading Population Impact Attributable to Modifiable Risk Factors for Hyperuricemia

Antidepressant use during pregnancy and the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus: a nested case–control study

When adjusting for potential confounders, AD use was associated with an increased risk of GDM (aOR 1.19, 95% CI 1.08 to 1.30); venlafaxine (aOR 1.27, 95% CI 1.09 to 1.49) and amitriptyline (aOR 1.52, 95% CI 1.25 to 1.84) were also associated with an increased risk of GDM. Moreover, the risk of GDM was increased with longer duration of AD use, specifically for serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, tricyclic … Continue reading Antidepressant use during pregnancy and the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus: a nested case–control study
