AIM: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a complex of symptoms that can seriously affect the quality of life in women. It has been suggested that the nutritional status of adult women may influence the presence and/or severity of PMS symptoms. However, little is known about this association in adolescents. The present study aimed to examine the relationship between diet quality and the presence/severity of PMS symptoms in adolescents. METHODS: A case-control study of 272 female students, aged 13-18 years, was conducted in a high school...

AIM: Evidence of the effectiveness of dietetic consultation for the management of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors has not been previously synthesised. A systematic review and four meta-analyses evaluated the effectiveness of dietetic consultation for lowering blood lipid levels in high-risk individuals in primary health-care settings. METHODS: Of the 4860 records identified, 10 eligible randomised controlled trials (RCTs, n = 1530) were evaluated for reporting blood lipid outcomes following dietetic consultation (DN)-defined as at least one exclusive individual face-to-face consultation with a dietitian and comparators (C)-defined as no nutrition intervention or usual or minimal care provided by physicians and/or nurses...

AIM: Diabetes-related nutrition knowledge (DRNK) is essential for the self-care of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). A specific tool measuring DRNK can help us to understand awareness levels and tailor structured nutrition education programs. Our study aimed to develop a questionnaire to assess DRNK for individuals with T2DM in Singapore. METHODS: An expert panel was formed to consolidate in-depth, culturally suitable, and current information on DRNK...

AIM: Personal genomic testing for nutrition and wellness (PGT-NG) offers a new service delivery model to nutritionists and dietitians. However, research indicates that this type of testing currently lacks sufficient clinical validity and utility to be commercially available. Despite Australian guidelines to the contrary, healthcare professionals are currently offering testing to clients, and promoting these services online. Thus, it is important to understand how PGT-NG is currently framed online to the public...

AIM: The prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), which has adverse effects on mothers and their offspring, is increasing worldwide. The role of a plant-based dietary pattern as a determinant of GDM is not well understood. Therefore, we examined the association between plant-based dietary patterns and the risk of GDM. METHODS: We enrolled 460 pregnant women in this case-control study, of them 200 were cases and 260 were controls. Dietary intake of participants was evaluated using three 24-hour dietary records...

AIM: To investigate the relationship between nutritional status, functional ability and frailty in older adults participating in a 12-week Transitional Aged Care Service program. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of a clinical cohort of older adults aged 65+ years after hospital discharge.

AIM: There has been an increase in the use of text messaging to deliver and support health interventions. The aim was to develop a bank of text messages targeting healthy eating for children in the context of parenting partnerships that could be used in a family intervention. METHODS: Text messages were developed using the Theoretical Domains Framework and Behaviour Change Wheel COM-B model by study investigators using a three-phase approach: (i) initial development of a message bank; (ii) messages were reviewed and evaluated by experts and parents on their clarity, usefulness, and relevance using a 5-point Likert scale and open text spaces for additional feedback and (iii) refinement of messages content and finalised the message bank...

AIM: Obesity is an emerging public health problem, with its incidence on the rise. An abnormal metabolic profile is a risk factor for developing obesity. Dietary factors play a central role in the regulation of inflammation and obesity. The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence of metabolically healthy obese and metabolically unhealthy obese (MUO) phenotypes, and their association with dietary inflammatory index (DII) among obese Iranian people. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted from July to October 2017 among 300 obese participants in southern Tehran...
