RESUMO

Certain metals play a role in the pathogenesis of diabetes. This study aimed to investigate the potential association of plasma magnesium (Mg) and dietary intake of Mg with glycaemic markers. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 2373 subjects in Guangxi, China. Dietary Mg was obtained through a food frequency questionnaire containing 109 common foods. Plasma Mg concentration was determined by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. Multiple linear regression combined with multivariable restricted cubic spline (RCS) functions was applied to evaluate the association of plasma Mg and dietary Mg with haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and fasting plasma glucose (FPG). In linear regression, dietary Mg was significantly associated with FPG in the overall population (ß = - 0.087, P < 0.05) and in women (ß = - 0.098, P < 0.05). Plasma Mg was significantly associated with FPG in the overall population (ß = - 0.096, P < 0.05) and in men (ß = - 0.110, P < 0.05) and women (ß = - 0.088, P < 0.05). In the RCS model, no non-linear association was found between dietary and plasma Mg and HbA1c levels. Dietary and plasma Mg are significantly negatively associated with fasting glucose.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The impact of dietary guidelines on health in ethnic minority regions needs to be further explored because of multiple sociocultural factors. Therefore, this study was conducted to analyze the association between adherence to dietary guidelines and health risks in an elderly population in an ethnic minority region. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was conducted among 836 older adults in ethnic minority areas. They were asked to describe their daily dietary intake levels through a semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire. The closeness coefficient for each study subject was calculated by using the technique for order preference by similarity to an ideal solution (TOPSIS), which measures the adherence to Dietary Guide for Elderly Adults (DGEA). Regression models were used to analyze the association between adherence and health risks. RESULTS: The daily food of the elderly in this area comprised cereals and vegetables. They had low intake of milk, dairy products, and water and high intake of salt. The closeness coefficient for the total population was 0.51, and the adherence of this population to dietary guidelines for the elderly was low. In both the crude model and the models adjusted for covariates, the closeness coefficient was not significantly associated with clinical indicators and health outcomes (p > 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: No association was found between adherence to large sample-based dietary guidelines and clinical indicators or health outcomes in ethnic minority populations. The applicability of dietary guidelines to ethnic minority areas and whether they yield the expected health benefits require further study.

RESUMO

Longevity research is a hot topic in the health field. Considerable research focuses on longevity phenomenon in Bama Yao Autonomous County, which has a typical karst landform and is located in Southwest China. This study aims to illustrate the spatial feature of longevity indicators in other Yao areas, to analyze the correlation between climatic factors and longevity indicators, and to provide new clues and targets for further longevity studies. We collect and integrate population, climate, and terrain data into a spatial database. The main analysis methods include spatial autocorrelation, high/low clustering, and multiscale geographically weighted regression (MGWR). Two longevity clusters are identified in Guijiang River Basin (longevity index (LI%): 2.49 ± 0.63) and Liujiang River Basin (LI%: 2.13 ± 0.60). The spatial distribution of longevity indicators is autocorrelative (Moran's I = 0.652, p < 0.001) and clustered significantly (Z score = 4.268, p < 0.001). MGWR shows that the atmospheric pressure significantly affects the spatial distribution of LI% (estimate value (EV) = - 0.566, p = 0.012), centenarity index (CI%) (EV = - 0.425, p = 0.007), UC (EV = - 0.502, p = 0.006), and CH (EV = - 0.497, p = 0.007). Rainfall significantly affects the spatial distribution of LI% (EV = 0.300, p = 0.003) and CI% (EV = - 0.191, p = 0.016). The spatial distribution of the main longevity indicators shows significant heterogeneity and autocorrelation, and they cluster in the Guijiang River and Liujiang River basins. Atmospheric pressure and rainfall may contribute to the longevity phenomenon through complex mechanisms. The longevity phenomenon in the Yao nationality in Guijiang River Basin requires further study to improve our understanding of the health effect of meteorological, environmental, and social conditions on longevity.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Heavy metals may play an important role as environmental risk factors in diabetes mellitus. This study aimed to explore the association of HbA1c with As, Cd, Cu, Ni, Pb, and Zn in single-metal exposure and multi-metal co-exposure models. METHODS: A cross-sectional study involving 3472 participants was conducted. Plasma concentrations of heavy metals were determined by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. We estimated the association of each metal with HbA1c by linear regression. Potential heterogeneities by sex, age, and smoking were investigated, and metal mixtures and interactions were assessed by the Bayesian kernel machine regression (BKMR). RESULTS: In linear regression, Cu (ß = 0.324, p < 0.05) and Ni (ß = -0.19, p < 0.05) showed significant association with HbA1c in all participants. In BKMR analyses, all exposure-response relationships were approximately linear. Cu was significantly and positively associated with HbA1c levels in overall participants, women, participants aged 60 years old and above, and nonsmokers. Ni was significantly and negatively associated with HbA1c levels in overall participants. We did not observe the overall effect of plasma metal mixtures on HbA1c or the interaction effect of the metals on HbA1c. CONCLUSION: Cu was positively correlated with HbA1c, whereas Ni was negatively correlated with HbA1c, when evaluated individually or in a metal mixture. Additional studies are necessary to confirm these correlations and to control for exposure to different metals in the general population.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Two cervical cancer screening (CCS) projects have been ongoing for years in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region (Guangxi), and some Trichomonas vaginalis infection (TVI) cases have been found as an opportunistic finding. This study aimed to identify the high-risk population and expound the spatial epidemiological features of TVI in Guangxi. METHODS: This study was based on CCS from 2012 to 2019. Adjusted odds ratio (AOR), and spatial analyses were used to identify the high-risk subgroups, as well as to depict the spatial epidemiological feature and its relationship with meteorological factors. RESULTS: The infection rate of TVI was 0.38% in 873,880 samples. Significant association with a high risk of TVI was found in the following: females aged 40-49 years (aOR=4.464; 95% CI, 3.359-5.932; p<0.001), aged 50-59 years (aOR=3.169; 95% CI, 2.370-4.237; p<0.001), from urban (aOR=1.577; 95% CI, 1.471-1.691; p<0.001), from minority areas (aOR=1.183; 95% CI, 1.060-1.320; p=0.003), areas with GPD <41,500 CNY (aOR=1.191; 95% CI, 1.106-1.282; p<0.001), and inland areas (aOR=1.520; 95% CI, 1.339-1.726; p<0.001). Counties with higher infection rate were concentrated in northwest Guangxi's mountainous area (Z-score=3.9656, p<0.001), in the upper reaches of the Hongshui River and Yu River, and with a significant spatial autocorrelation (Moran's I=0.581, p=0.002). Spatial error model showed significantly negative regressions among temperature (B=-0.295, p=0.002), annual temperature range (B=-0.295, p=0.002), and TVI spatial distribution. CONCLUSION: The spatial clustering and disparity of TVI in northwest Guangxi warrant further study, and meteorological conditions may play an important role in TVI in northwest Guangxi.

RESUMO

The objective of the study was to explore the relationship between the plasma levels of 22 metals and cognition status in older adults aged 60 years and above. A cross-sectional survey was conducted between 2018 and 2019. Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) was used to detect the concentrations of metals, and a mini-mental state examination (MMSE) questionnaire was used to estimate the cognition status of the elderly. Based on the years of education and MMSE scores, the participants were separated into the normal and impaired cognition groups. Lasso regression, logistic regression, and restricted cubic spline models were used to explore the relationship between the metals and cognitive status. A total of 1667 subjects were included in the study, and 333 (19.97%) of the participants had impaired cognition. Then, 12 metals, including Al, Fe, Ni, Cu, As, Se, Rb, Sr, Mo, Cd, Sn, and Sb were selected by lasso regression. Before the multivariate adjustment, Al and Cu were associated with the risk of increasing cognitive impairment (OR = 1.756, 95% CI: 1.166-2.646, P = 0.007; OR = 1.519, 95% CI: 1.050-2.197, P = 0.026, respectively). By contrast, Rb was associated with a decrease in the risk of cognitive impairment (OR = 0.626, 95% CI: 0.427-0.918, P = 0.017), but Cd was significantly associated with an increase in this risk (OR = 1.456, 95% CI: 1.003-2.114, P = 0.048). After multivariate adjustment, only Al (OR = 1.533, 95% CI: 1.000-2.350, P = 0.050) maintained a borderline difference with the risk of cognitive impairment. A significant positive correlation was found between the risk of cognitive impairment and Al, Cu, and Cd, contrary to the negative correlation found with Rb.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Fatty liver disease (FLD) is a serious public health problem that is rapidly increasing. Evidence indicates that the transcription factor EB (TFEB) gene may be involved in the pathophysiology of FLD; however, whether TEFB polymorphism has an association with FLD remains unclear. OBJECTIVES: To explore the association among TFEB polymorphism, gene-environment interaction, and FLD and provide epidemiological evidence for clarifying the genetic factors of FLD. METHODS: This study is a case-control study. Sequenom MassARRAY was applied in genotyping. Logical regression was used to analyze the association between TFEB polymorphism and FLD, and the gene-environment interaction in FLD was evaluated by multiplication and additive interaction models. RESULTS: (1) The alleles and genotypes of each single nucleotide polymorphism and haplotypes of TFEB in the case and control groups were evenly distributed; no statistically substantial difference was observed. (2) Logistic regression analysis indicated that TFEB polymorphism is not remarkably associated with FLD. (3) In the multiplicative interaction model, rs1015149, rs1062966, rs11754668 and rs2273068 had remarkable interaction with the amount of cigarette smoking. Rs1062966 and rs11754668 also had a considerable interaction body mass index and alcohol intake, respectively. However, no remarkable additive interaction was observed. CONCLUSION: TFEB polymorphism is not directly associated with FLD susceptibility, but the risk can be changed through gene-environment interaction.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The associations between oil tea and type 2 diabetes (T2D) have been little studied in the population. This study aimed to evaluate whether oil tea intake is related to the reduced risk of T2D in adults. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: A rural-based cross-sectional study was conducted in Gongcheng Yao Autonomous County, Guangxi, southern China (2018-2019), with a total of 3178 population included in the final analysis. A multivariable logistic regression model was used to analyze the associations between the intake frequency, daily intake of oil tea and the risk of T2D. We further compared the association differences between the daily intake of oil tea and the risk of diabetes under different dietary patterns, which were generated from food frequency intake data using principal factor analysis. RESULTS: The differences in the frequency and daily intake of oil tea in both groups (diabetes group and the non-diabetes group) were statistically significant (p<0.05). After adjusting for age, sex, smoking status, physical activity, body mass index (BMI), compared with non-oil tea drinkers, intake ≥3 times /d had an inverse association with T2D (OR=0.417; 95% CI: 0.205-0.848, p<0.05); while daily intake of more than 600 mL/d but less than 900 mL/d was significantly associated with reduced T2D risk (OR=0.492; 95% CI: 0.284-0.852, p=0.011). In the Chinese traditional dietary and the plant-based dietary model, compared with the non-oil tea drinkers, the fourth intake group had a lower risk of diabetes, with an OR (95%CI) value of 0.500 (0.291-0.854) and 0.505 (0.298-0.855), respectively, but no statistical significance (All p>0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that oil tea was associated with a reduced risk of T2D aged 30 years or older.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to assess the effects of Apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene polymorphisms, dietary nutrient intake, and their interactions on the prevalence of dyslipidemia in a Yao minority area, China. METHODS: rs429358, rs7412, rs7259620, and rs405509 of the APOE gene were genotyped in 1014 adults aged ≥30 years by using the MassArray system. Dietary nutrients intake data were ascertained from a 109-item food frequency questionnaire (FFQ). RESULTS: Multifactorial logistics regression analysis showed that dyslipidemia was associated with rs7412-CT/TT genotype (OR: 0.540, Bonferroni correction confidence interval: 0.336-0.869), high fat intake (OR: 1.644, 95% CI: 1.128-2.395), high saturated fatty acid (SFA) intake (OR: 1.668, 95% CI: 1.146-2.428), medium carbohydrate intake (OR: 0.634, 95% CI: 0.461-0.873) and high carbohydrate intake (OR: 0.591, 95% CI: 0.406-0.858). The results of logistics regression multiplication model showed that medium carbohydrate intake in the carriers of the rs7412 minor alleles was associated with a low risk of dyslipidemia (OR: 0.433, Bonferroni correction confidence interval: 0.199-0.941). CONCLUSIONS: Genetic variations at the rs7412, dietary fat, SFA, and carbohydrate intake and the interaction between APOE gene polymorphisms and carbohydrate intake are associated with dyslipidemia in Yao nationality people.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Animal experiments have found that oil tea reduces body weight and improves blood lipid levels. However, the effect of oil tea on human health has not been confirmed yet. This study aims to explore the relationship between oil tea consumption and obesity and dyslipidemia. METHODS: In a cross-sectional population study in Guangxi, China, a semi-quantitative questionnaire was used to investigate the oil tea consumed and food consumption frequency in adults aged 30 years and over. Anthropometric variables and serum biochemical indicators were measured. A total of 2001 adults were divided into five groups based on their non-consumption status and quartile of consumption (groups non-drink oil tea, Q1-Q4). RESULTS: The risk of abdominal obesity tended to decrease significantly with increasing consumption of oil tea (P for trend< 0.05) in the overall participants (Q3 group, OR = 0.545, 95% CI = 0.336-0.884; Q4 group, OR = 0.520, 95% CI = 0.311-0.871) and in women (Q2 group, OR = 0.502, 95% CI = 0.274-0.920; Q3 group, OR = 0.397, 95% CI = 0.213-0.740; Q4 group, OR = 0.421, 95% CI = 0.228-0.780). Oil tea consumption Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4 group significantly reduced the risk of abnormal HDL-cholesterol (P < 0.05). Oil tea consumption Q2 group significantly increased the risk of abnormal LDL-cholesterol (OR = 2.600, 95% CI = 1.033-6.546) in women. Oil tea consumption Q1 (OR = 0.081, 95% CI =0.008-0.864) and Q3 (OR = 0.057, 95% CI = 0.004-0.913) groups significantly reduced the risk of abnormal HDL-cholesterol in women. CONCLUSION: Oil tea consumption may be associated with a low risk of abdominal obesity. High-dose oil tea consumption may be associated with a low risk of abnormal HDL-cholesterol. Prospective studies with large sample sizes would be required to further investigate this association.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT: This meta-analysis aimed to estimate the prevalence of burnout among medical students in China.A systematic search from the following electronic databases: China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Wangfang database, VIP database, Chinese biomedical literature database, PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and Google Scholar was independently conducted by 2 reviewers from inception to September 2019. The data were analyzed using stata software Version 11. Heterogeneity was assessed using I2 tests, and publication bias was evaluated using funnel plots and Egger's test. The source of heterogeneity among subgroups was determined by subgroup analysis of different parameters.A total of 48 articles with a sample size of 29,020 met the inclusion criteria. The aggregate prevalence of learning burnout was 45.9% (95% confidence interval [CI] = 38.1%-53.8%). The prevalence rate of high emotional exhaustion was 37.5% (95% CI: 21.4%-53.7%). The percentage was 44.0% (95% CI: 29.2%-58.8%) for low personal accomplishment. The prevalence rate was 36.0% (95% CI: 23.0%-48.9%) in depersonalization dimension. In the subgroup analysis by specialty, the prevalence of burnout was 30.3% (95% CI: 28.6%-32.0%) for clinical medicine and 43.8% (95% CI: 41.8%-45.8%) for other medical specialties. The total prevalence of burnout between men and women was 46.4% (95% CI: 44.8%-47.9%) and 46.6% (95% CI: 45.5%-47.6%), respectively. The prevalence of burnout with Rong Lian's scale was 43.7% (42.1%-45.2%), and that with the other scales was 51.4% (50.4%-52.4%). The prevalence rates were 62.9% (61.3%-64.6%), 58.7% (56.3%-61.1%), 46.5% (42.9%-50.2%), and 56.0% (51.6%-60.4%) from Grades 1 to 4, respectively. There was a statistically significant difference among the different grades (P = .000).Our findings suggest a high prevalence of burnout among medical students. Society, universities, and families should take appropriate measures and allot more care to prevent burnout among medical students.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Hand grip strength is a complex phenotype. The current study aimed to identify the effects of the association between APOE rs405509 polymorphisms and gene-environment interactions on hand grip strength among middle-aged and elderly people in a rural population in Gongcheng, southern China. METHODS: APOE rs405509 polymorphisms in 1724 participants (695 men and 1029 women, aged 45-97 years old) were genotyped using the Sequenom MassARRAY platform. Statistical analysis was conducted using SPSS 21.0 and Plink 1.90. RESULTS: The APOE rs405509 G allele was associated with lower hand grip strength in all participants (ß = -1.04, P value <0.001), and the correlation seemed to be even stronger among women. A significant gene-environment interaction was observed between APOE rs405509 and smoking, especially in men. The hand grip strength of male smokers carrying the GG genotype was significantly higher than that of nonsmokers (P value = 0.004). CONCLUSIONS: APOE rs405509 polymorphisms might be genetic factors that affect hand grip strength in a rural population in Gongcheng, southern China. The APOE rs405509-smoking interaction has an impact on hand grip strength.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Sufficient attention was not paid to the effects of microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT) and plasma tau protein on cognition. OBJECTIVE: A total of 3072 people in rural China were recruited. They were provided with question- naires, and blood samples were obtained. METHODS: The MMSE score was used to divide the population into cognitive impairment group and control group. First, logistic regression analysis was used to explore the possible factors influenc- ing cognitive function. Second, 1837 samples were selected for SNP detection through stratified sampling. Third, 288 samples were selected to test three plasma biomarkers (tau, phosphorylated tau, and Aß-42). RESULTS: For the MAPT rs242557, people with AG genotypes were 1.32 times more likely to devel- op cognitive impairment than those with AA genotypes, and people with GG genotypes were 1.47 times more likely to develop cognitive impairment than those with AG phenotypes. The plasma tau protein concentration was also increased in the population carrying G (P = 0.020). The plasma tau protein was negatively correlated with the MMSE score (P = 0.004). CONCLUSION: The mutation of MAPT rs242557 (A > G) increased the risk of cognitive impairment and the concentration of plasma tau protein.

RESUMO

This study seeks to examine and analyze the spatial and temporal patterns of 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreaks and identify the spatiotemporal distribution characteristics and changing trends of cases. Hence, local outlier analysis and emerging spatiotemporal hot spot analysis were performed to analyze the spatiotemporal clustering pattern and cold/hot spot trends of COVID-19 cases based on space-time cube during the period from 23 January 2020 to 24 February 2020. The main findings are as follows: (1) The outbreak had spread rapidly throughout the country within a short time and the current totality incidence rate has decreased. (2) The spatiotemporal distribution of cases was uneven. In terms of the spatiotemporal clustering pattern, Wuhan and Shiyan city were the center as both cities had high-high clustering pattern with a surrounding unstable multiple-type pattern in partial areas of Henan, Anhui, Jiangxi, and Hunan provinces, and Chongqing city. Those regions are continuously in the hot spot on the spatiotemporal tendency. (3) The spatiotemporal analysis technology based on the space-time cube can analyze comprehensively the spatiotemporal pattern of epidemiological data and produce a visual output of the consequences, which can reflect intuitively the distribution and trend of data in space-time. Therefore, the Chinese government should strengthen the prevention and control efforts in a targeted manner to cope with a highly changeable situation.
