    • Ageing and mental health: Changes in self-reported health due to physical illness and mental health status with consecutive cross-sectional analyses 

      Lorem, Geir F; Schirmer, Henrik; Wang, Catharina Elisabeth Arfwedson; Emaus, Nina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-01-18)
      Objectives: It is known that self-reported health (SRH) declines with increasing age and that comorbidity increases with age. We wished to examine how age transfers its effect to SRH through comorbid disease and mental illness and whether these processes remained stable from 1994 until 2008. The hypothesis is that ageing and/or the increased age-related burden of pathology explains the declining ...

Municipalities determine the type(s) of service and the amount of care applicants require. The services granted are outlined in an individual decision letter, which ...
    • Allsidighet og agendaer 

      Ytreberg, Beate (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2014)
      Sture Grønli tillegger meg meninger jeg ikke har, og bruker resten av debattinnlegget til å kritisere det han leser inn. Snakk gjerne for NGT Grønli, men få det ikke til å se ut som om min kronikk i Nordlys 20.02.2014 var rettet mot NTG. Jeg nevnte ikke NTG i det hele tatt, men brukte ordet ”toppidrettsgymnas” en gang som ubestemt flertall.

    • The association between anemia and falls in community-living women and men aged 65 years and older from the fifth Tromsø Study 2001-02: a replication study 

      Hopstock, Laila Arnesdatter; Utne, Elisabeth Bøe; Horsch, Alexander; Skjelbakken, Tove (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-27)
      Background: <br> Falls are common among elderly people, and the risk increase with age. Falls are associated with both health and social consequences for the patient, and major societal costs. Identification of risk factors should be investigated to prevent falls. Previous studies have shown anemia to be associated with increased risk of falling, but the results are inconsistent. The aim of this ...
    • The association between childhood fractures and adolescence bone outcomes: a population-based study, the Tromsø Study, Fit Futures 

      Christoffersen, Tore; Emaus, Nina; Dennison, Elaine; Furberg, Anne-Sofie; Gracia-Marco, Luis; Grimnes, Guri; Nilsen, Ole-Andreas; Vlachopoulos, Dimitris; Winther, Anne; Ahmed, Luai A. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-16)
      <p><i>SUMMARY</i>: Childhood fracture may predict persistent skeletal fragility, but it may also reflect high physical activity which is beneficial to bone development. We observe a difference in the relationship between previous fracture and bone outcome across physical activity level and sex. Further elaboration on this variation is needed.</p> <p><i>PURPOSE</i>: Childhood fracture may be an ...
    • The association between timed up and go test and history of falls : The Tromsø study

    • Barn og ungdom i krise : hvordan bli en god hjelper? 

      Mathisen, Vår (Book; Bok, 2008-03)
      De fleste barn og unge i Norge har det godt. De har nok mat, et sted å bo, skole og fritid som fungerer, venner og foreldre som viser at de bryr seg. Dette gjelder dessverre ikke alle, og det er da hjelpeapparatet kan bli koblet inn. Bokens fokus er den subjektive opplevelsen og meningsdimensjonen hos ungdom som mottar hjelp fra helse- og sosialvesen, skole- og utdanningsvesen, NAV, politiet, ...
    • Behandling av pasienter med uspesifikke nakkesmerter gjennom påvirkning av motorisk kontroll 

      Thrane, Gyrd; Wiesener, Trond (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2007)
      Dette prosjektet vil bestå av 6 casestudier på pasienter med uspesifikke nakkesmerter. Prosjektet har som mål å integrere teori om funksjonell motorisk kontroll i vår behandling av disse pasientene. Gjennom aksjonsforskning vil prøver vi å utvikle vår personlige praksis med bakgrunn i teorien, og vurdere om teorien må endres på bakgrunn av denne erfaringen med reelle praksissituasjoner.

    • Bone mineral density is associated with Vitamin D related rs6013897 and estrogen receptor polymorphism rs4870044: The Tromsø study 

      Martinaityte, Ieva; Jorde, Rolf; Emaus, Nina; Eggen, Anne Elise; Joakimsen, Ragnar Martin; Kamycheva, Elena (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-03-02)
      Background:<br>Bone mineral density (BMD) is determined by bone remodeling processes regulated by endocrine, autocrine and genetic mechanisms. Thus, some studies have reported that BMD is associated with single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with vitamin D receptor (VDR), serum 25(OH)D levels and estrogen receptor 1 (ESR1), but without consensus. Therefore, we aimed to map and compare ...
