Socio-economic determinants of casualty and NHS Direct use

Background There is limited evidence on the social determinants of A&E use and concerns over the equity of NHS Direct utilization. Methods We analysed data from the 2004–05 British General Household Survey, which included 20 421 participants. Logistic regression was used to examine individual casualty use in the last 3 months and household NHS Direct use in the last year. Results ...

Physical activity, obesity and cardiometabolic risk factors in 9- to 10-year-old UK children of white European, South Asian and black African-Caribbean origin: the Child Heart And health Study in England (CHASE)

Aims/hypothesis Physical inactivity is implicated in unfavourable patterns of obesity and cardiometabolic risk in childhood. However, few studies have quantified these associations using objective physical activity measurements in children from different ethnic groups. We examined these associations in UK children of South Asian, black African-Caribbean and white European origin. ...

Metabolic syndrome and renal sodium handling in three ethnic groups living in England

Aim/hypothesis Increased proximal renal sodium re-absorption is associated with central adiposity and insulin resistance in white men. Our study examined whether this association also exists in other ethnic groups with different prevalences of insulin resistance and associated metabolic abnormalities. Methods We studied the association between fractional renal excretion of ...

Variable effects of the APOC3 –482C > T variant on insulin, glucose and triglyceride concentrations in different ethnic groups

Aims/hypothesis. The apolipoprotein C3–482C > T variant modulates insulin and glucose concentrations after an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in young healthy white men. We evaluated the effect of this variant in different ethnic groups with different rates of Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus and coronary heart disease. Methods. We investigated the –482C > T in ...

Childhood size is more strongly related than size at birth to glucose and insulin levels in 10–11-year-old children

In adults low birthweight and thinness at birth are associated with increased risk of glucose intolerance and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. We have examined the relations between size at birth (birthweight, thinness at birth) and levels of plasma glucose and serum insulin in children, and compared them with the effects of childhood size. We performed a school-based ...
