The major contributor to psychiatric acute admissions at the University Hospital of North Norway in the city of Tromsø in 2001 was the GP-based Tromsø Casualty Clinic, only open out-of-hours. We explored all acute psychiatric referrals from Tromsø Casualty Clinic in 2001. The purpose ...
    • Adding marrow adiposity and cortical porosity to femoral neck areal bone mineral density improves the discrimination of women with nonvertebral fractures from controls 

      Zebaze, Roger; Osima, Marit; Bui, Minh; Lukic, Marko; Wang, Xiaofang; Ghasem-Zadeh, Ali; Eriksen, Erik Fink; Vais, Angela; Shore-Lorenti, Catherine; Ebeling, Peter R.; Seeman, Ego; Bjørnerem, Åshild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-18)
      Advancing age is accompanied by a reduction in bone formation and remodeling imbalance, which produces microstructural deterioration. This may be partly caused by a diversion of mesenchymal cells towards adipocytes rather than osteoblast lineage cells. We hypothesized that microstructural deterioration would be associated with an increased marrow adiposity, and each of these traits would be independently ...

    • Advancing alcohol Research in low-income and middle-income countries: a global alcohol environment framework 

      Walls, Helen; Cook, Sarah Anne; Matzopolous, Richard; London, Leslie (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-04-16)
      Alcohol-related harm has gained increased attention in high-income countries (HICs) in recent years which, alongside government regulation, has effected a reduction in alcohol consumption. The alcohol industry has turned its attention to low-income and middle-income country (LMIC) markets as a new source of growth and profit, prompting increased consumption in LMICS. Alcohol use in LMICs is also ...

    • The ambiguity of physical activity, exercise and atrial fibrillation 

      Morseth, Bente; Løchen, Maja-Lisa; Ariansen, Inger Kristine Holtermann; Myrstad, Marius; Thelle, Dag Steinar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-07)
      Although commonly associated with cardiovascular disease or other medical conditions, atrial fibrillation may also occur in individuals without any known underlying conditions. This manifestation of atrial fibrillation has been linked to extensive and long-term exercise, as prolonged endurance exercise has shown to increase prevalence and risk of atrial fibrillation. In contrast, more modest physical ...
