  1. Do patients value nutritional therapy? A quantitative study in type- 2 diabetes patients

    Pinto, Ezequiel; Braz, Nídia; Nascimento, Tânia; Gomes, Eurico
    Type 2 diabetes patients’ adherence to pharmacotherapy is higher than adherence to nutritional therapy or lifestyle change behaviours, and patients do not value nutritional therapy in the same level as they value other types of interventions. This study aimed to analyse the value that T2DM patients place on nutritional therapy and to identify perceived barriers to nutritional therapy adherence. Methods: A non-random sample of 62 patients receiving health care in a Diabetes Clinic in the municipality of Faro, in the Portuguese region of the Algarve, was interviewed with a semi-structured protocol regarding sociodemographic characteristics, lifestyle, physical activity, and dietary habits. Additional data were collected from the patient’s clinical files and by conducting anthropometric...

  3. Postprandial glycaemia in type-2 diabetes: A non-random trial according to glucose control

    Pinto, Ezequiel; Braz, Nídia; Nascimento, Tânia; Gomes, Eurico
    Introduction: Postprandial glycaemia contributes significantly to the overall glycaemic control and is a risk factor for cardiovascular complications in type-2 diabetes patients. As patients with good glycaemic control can show elevated postprandial hyperglycaemia, especially after breakfast, the study of glucose response after this meal can provide insight that will help nutrition intervention and treatment. Methods: A group of 66 patients previously diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus was recruited and categorized into patients with HbA1c below 7% (proper glycaemic control) and patients with HbA1c of 7% or above (poor glycaemic control). All subjects were interviewed and offered a nutritionally controlled breakfast....

  5. Global geriatric evaluation of the Algarve population

    Braz, Nídia; Pais, Sandra; Cordeiro, Clara; Oliveira, Giovanna; Conde, Monserrat
    The ageing of population challenges communities to adapt and evolve to accommodate the needs of people that live longer (mostly out of work, either healthy, fragile or with chronic disease). Population ageing in the Algarve is higher than in overall Portugal. Studies on health conditions, frailty risk factors and elderly specific needs are undeveloped in Portugal and unknown in the Algarve. Objective To prepare a tool for Global Geriatric Evaluation, to be used in the “Survey of Health and Ageing in the Region of Algarve - SHARA”, a commitment to “European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing”. Methods A preliminary version of the screening...
