  • Social and medical risk indicators for 8-year mortality in a Swedish urban elderly population
  • 2003
  • Ingår i: Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics. ; 36:2, s. 155-171
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim of this study was to identify and evaluate social and medical risk indicators for mortality in an urban elderly population. Altogether 217 subjects (144 women and 73 men, mean age 78 years, range 69–96 years of age) participated in an examination 1990/91. Eighty-eight persons (55 women and 33 men) had died, and 129 subjects (89 women and 40 men) were alive January 1, 1999. Several risk indicators were found and those with the highest statistical explanatory power to predict mortality were: tremor, inability for heavy housework, a pathological second heart sound, low triceps skinfold, low diastolic blood pressure and decreased appetite. A multivariate model (MVM) utililizing both social and medical risk indicators, and a clinical model (CM) based on the judgement of a registered nurse identified 49 and 34%, respectively, of those who died during the 8-year period (n=88). A third risk group, the intervention group, comprising individuals selected by either the MVM or CM models, identified 56% of those who died. The latter procedure could be used to define risk groups for mortality in future intervention studies. The combination of social and medical risk indicators in MVM, and a CM might be used in studies with larger sample sizes in order to increase the knowledge in this field.

  • The Johanneberg Study: a Social Survey in an Urban Elderly Population. I. General presentation of the study including an analysis of non-response and identification of risk groups
  • 1993
  • Ingår i: Scandinavian Journal of Social Medicin. ; 22:4, s. 283-92
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This study is the Swedish part of a world-wide transcultural and interdisciplinary study in elderly populations which addresses food habits, health and life-style. The aim of this paper is to present the general design including an analysis of non-response, and to identify risk-groups for intervention programmes. The study comprised 217 noninstitutionalized males (n = 73) and females (n = 144), aged 70 and over (mean age 78 years) in a small urban area. Home visits and clinical examinations with standard methods were used. The participation rate was 76%. Significant differences between non-respondents and respondents could be seen, which may be important when planning health promotion. On the basis of experience during the examinations, a risk-group was identified for prospective and intervention study purpose, based on a multiple variable model and a clinical model.

  • Effects of nutritional support long time after total gastrectomy
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Clinical Nutrition. ; 26, s. 605-613
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background & aimsLong-term effects of total gastrectomy on nutritional status are not well known, neither is the role of nutritional support. Dietary counselling is usually individualized, but generally not well defined. We aimed to evaluate effects of individualized oral nutritional support long time after total gastrectomy.MethodsDietary advice was given, aiming for an energy and protein rich diet, using ordinary food and liquid supplements tailored to individual needs and preferences. Counselling was repeated monthly. Body weight and a 4-day food record were obtained at baseline, and thereafter—at month 1, 3, 6 and 12. Body composition, resting and total energy expenditure were measured at baseline and at 12 months.ResultsThirteen of 15 included patients completed the study. Though a trend of weight gain was seen after 1 month, there was no significant weight change at 12 months as weight development was quite heterogeneous. Six patients who remained healthy during the study (all with BMI<25) gained weight (p<0.05), while five patients with intercurrent co-morbidity and two with initial BMI>25 lost weight or remained stable.ConclusionsNutritional intervention long time after total gastrectomy did not change body weight, body composition or energy metabolism. Intercurrent co-morbidity appeared to have a major impact on outcome, as the nutritional support was more effective in patients who remained healthy and had a BMI<25.

  • Muscle mass and exercise capacity in cancer patients after major upper gastrointestinal surgery.
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: e-SPEN, the European e-journal of Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism. - 1751-4991. ; 5:6, s. 265-271
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background & aimsNutritional therapy has traditionally been evaluated by changes in weight and in food intake, while body composition and function may be of greater clinical significance. We investigated relationships between total body skeletal muscle mass (TBSMM), energy balance and exercise capacity in 41 patients before, 6 and 12 months after curatively intended major upper gastrointestinal surgery.MethodsTBSMM and body energy content were assessed by DXA. Exercise capacity was measured on a treadmill. Energy balance was defined as the difference in body energy content at two points in time.ResultsDuring the first postoperative year average weight loss was 7% although 1 our of 3 patients remained weight stable (WS). Average TBSMM decreased significantly at 6 months (0.9 kg, p < 0.01), but was regained at 12 months, as was exercise capacity. 72% of weight losing patients (WL) lost TBSMM compared to 17% of WS patients, p < 0.01. Both TBSMM and changes in TBSMM, but not changes in energy content, were correlated to exercise capacity, r2 = 0.49, p < 0.001 and r2 = 0.15, p < 0.05 respectively.ConclusionsTBSMM and exercise capacity were clearly related in cancer patients after major upper gastrointestinal surgery, as were changes in TBSMM and exercise capacity. Energy balance was not directly correlated to exercise capacity, but more WS than WL patients increased their TBSMM indicating a possible influence by energy balance.

  • Health-Promoting Interventions for Persons 80 Years and Over are Successful in the Short Term – Results from the Randomized and Three-Armed Study Elderly Persons in the Risk Zone
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Journal of the American Geriatrics Society. - 0002-8614. ; 60:3, s. 447-454
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • OBJECTIVES: To examine the outcomes of the Elderly Persons in the Risk Zone study, which was designed to evaluate whether it is possible to delay deterioration if a health-promoting intervention is made when an older adult (≥80) is at risk of becoming frail and whether a multiprofessional group intervention is more effective in delaying deterioration than a single preventive home visit with regard to frailty, self-rated health, and activities of daily living (ADLs) at 3-month follow-up.DESIGN: Randomized, three-armed, single-blind, controlled trial performed between November 2007 and May 2011.SETTING: Two urban districts of Gothenburg, Sweden.PARTICIPANTS: Four hundred fifty-nine community-living adults aged 80 and older not dependent on the municipal home help service.INTERVENTION: A preventive home visit or four weekly multiprofessional senior group meetings with one follow-up home visit.MEASUREMENTS: Change in frailty, self-rated health, and ADLs between baseline and 3-month follow-up.RESULTS: Both interventions delayed deterioration of self-rated health (odds ratio (OR) = 1.99, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.12-3.54). Senior meetings were the most beneficial intervention for postponing dependence in ADLs (OR = 1.95, 95% CI = 1.14-3.33). No effect on frailty could be demonstrated.CONCLUSION: Health-promoting interventions made when older adults are at risk of becoming frail can delay deterioration in self-rated health and ADLs in the short term. A multiprofessional group intervention such as the senior meetings described seems to have a greater effect on delaying deterioration in ADLs than a single preventive home visit. Further research is needed to examine the outcome in the long term and in different contexts.
