Gout is the most common inflammatory arthritic condition affecting more men than women. Hyperuricemia and the deposition of urate crystals into the joints are the hallmarks of gout. The prevalence of gout and hyperuricemia is rising in the United States and world-wide possibly due to the aging population, comorbidities, and other lifestyle factors. Gout and serum uric acid (SUA) levels are highly heritable, underscoring the role of genetics on disease risk and possibly the racial disparities in gout prevalence...

Hawai'i has comprehensive statewide tobacco control policies and was the first US state to raise the minimum age of sale, purchase, and possession of tobacco products to age 21 ("Tobacco 21") in a policy including not just cigarettes, but also electronic smoking devices and other tobacco products. This insights article provides strategic thinking about tobacco control advocacy planning. Specifically, we identify formative factors critical to building and sustaining our cross-sector, statewide advocacy infrastructure that has been able to address many ongoing challenges of tobacco-use prevention and control over time...

In this report we examine the level of knowledge about heart attack symptoms and what action to take if a heart attack is suspected among Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) adults in the United States using data from the 2014 NHPI-National Health Interview Survey. Analyses include summary statistics to describe levels of heart attack knowledge and multivariate logistic regression to identify characteristics associated with having the recommended heart attack knowledge. Less than half (44.4%) of NHPI adults have the recommended heart attack knowledge...

Physical Activity (PA) is essential for the prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCD). The risk of developing NCDs is three times as high among people with disabilities than people without disabilities. In 2016, an estimated 158,570 people in Hawai'i had disabilities. So far, only limited studies have considered increasing PA opportunities for people with disabilities. AccesSurf is a non-profit organization empowering people with disabilities to perform adaptive swimming and surfing. The purpose of this study was to conduct qualitative process and pilot outcome evaluation of AccesSurf...

Risk behaviors are known to adversely affect health outcomes, but the relationship between youth risk behaviors and oral health remains unclear. The objective of this study is to examine the likelihood of dental visiting among Hawai'i public high school students by demographic factors and number of adverse risk behaviors. Aggregated 2013 and 2015 Hawai'i public high school Youth Risk and Behavior Survey (YRBS) data was analyzed from 10,720 students. Results showed that, overall, 77.1% of students reported a dental visit in the past 12 months...

Fibroadenomas are common benign tumors of the female breast. In the appropriate clinical setting, they are often managed expectantly without excision. Rarely, cancer may arise within a fibroadenoma, and this diagnosis mandates prompt treatment for malignancy. We present the case of a 70-year-old Samoan woman with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) arising within a fibroadenoma. Health care practitioners should be aware of the possibility, particularly in older women, of finding carcinoma within a fibroadenoma, which informs the rationale for prompt surgical evaluation and follow up of all breast masses...

The Hawai'i Patient Reward And Incentives to Support Empowerment (HI-PRAISE) project, part of the Medicaid Incentives for Prevention of Chronic Diseases program of the Affordable Care Act, examined the impact of financial incentives on Medicaid beneficiaries with diabetes. It included an observational pre-post study which was conducted at nine Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) between 2013 to 2015. The observational study enrolled 2,003 participants. Participants could earn up to $320/year in financial incentives...

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), a small Pacific nation located in Micronesia (population 53,184). Although generally preventable, diabetic foot disease is among the most frequently reported complication of DM globally and in the RMI. Over 25% of people with DM globally will have at least one DM-related foot ulcer, which may require surgical intervention. The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence of DM-related foot surgeries at the Leroij Atama Zedkaia Majuro Hospital, the main tertiary referral centre for the RMI, and where 90% of all DM-related foot surgeries in the country are conducted...

This retrospective cohort study examined associations between maternal body mass index (BMI), race, and obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASI) (3rd/4th degree perineal lacerations). Obstetric anal sphincter injury may lead to significant maternal morbidity, and a more thorough understanding of risk factors for this complication may guide providers in patient counseling and procedures such as episiotomy or operative vaginal delivery. Vaginal deliveries performed at Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children from 2008-2015 were included...

Diabetes distress (DD) generally refers to the emotional and cognitive stress caused by the daily management of diabetes. The Diabetes Distress Scale (DDS)-17 is a 17-item instrument that is frequently used to screen DD and the Fisher's DDS2, developed by Fisher, et al, is a two-item instrument to quickly identify DD. However, these scales have been validated in Caucasian populations but not in Asian Pacific Islander (API) populations. This study aimed to 1) evaluate content validity of the DDS17 by evaluating correlation with hemoglobin A1c and 2) identify two items to develop a brief screening tool, DDS2, for an API population...

In order to successfully address social determinants of health and to achieve social justice for kanaka and all the people of Hawai'i, we must broaden our understanding of and approach to healing/health through interdisciplinary, culturally-informed education. Strengthening cultural competence within an Interprofessional Education framework, has potential in meeting important challenges in patient and population health, including meeting the increased demand for culturally trained professionals, increasing access to providers, and reducing health inequities in kanaka (Native Hawaiians)...

As part of the strategic plan to improve preconception care, health care providers are advised to counsel women about developing a reproductive life plan. Women are asked think about whether they want to become pregnant and have children and if so, when they would like to do so. The utility of a reproductive life plan is based on the premise that an individual has control over their own health and reproduction. Less is known regarding the beliefs of health care providers which may be important for strategizing educational and training programs...

Gelastic seizures (GS) are a rare form of epilepsy characterized by inappropriate, uncontrolled laughter. They are highly associated with abnormal cognitive development and behavioral problems in patients. Research has shown that GS can originate from hypothalamic hamartomas (HH), non- neoplastic masses consisting of gray matter with large and small neurons interspersed with glial nuclei. GS have also been observed in patients with frontal and temporal lobe lesions. The patient in this case report is a 40-year-old man with a past medical history significant for brain tumor, diabetes mellitus, and schizophrenia who presented with a long standing history of sudden, involuntary laughter occurring 2-3 times a week since 8 years old...
