Le risque de dépression, en rapport avec l’apport en calcium et magnésium ?

Selon l’OMS, environ 350 millions de personnes à travers le monde sont concernées par la dépression, et celle-ci va représenter « la seconde cause de maladie vers 2030. » On connaît certains facteurs de risque comme la sédentarité, une durée de sommeil « trop courte ou trop longue » ou un stress prolongé. Et à l’inverse, divers facteurs diététiques et nutriti[...]

BackgroundWe aimed to describe changes in hepatitis B screening practices over a 3-year period among HIV-infected patients in West Africa.MethodsA medical chart review was conducted in urban HIV treatment centers in Ivory Coast (3 sites), Benin, Burkina Faso, Senegal, and Togo (1 site each). Among patients who started antiretroviral treatment between 2010 and 2012, 100 per year were randomly selected from each clinic. Demographic, clinical, and laboratory data was collected using a standardized questionnaire. We assessed changes in the proportion of patients screened over time and identified predictors of screening in a multivariable logistic regression.ResultsA total of 2097 patients were included (median age: 37 years, 65.4% of women). Overall, 313 (14.9%) patients had been screened for hepatitis B, with an increase from 10.6% in 2010 to 18.9% in 2012 (P0.001) and substantial differences across countries. In multivariable analysis, being aged over 45 years (adjusted odds ratio: 1.34 [1.01–1.77]) and having an income-generating activity (adjusted odds ratio: 1.82 [1.09–3.03]) were associated with screening for hepatitis B infection. Overall, 62 HIV-infected patients (19.8%, 95% confidence interval: 15.5–24.7) were HBsAg-positive and 82.3% of them received a tenofovir-co[...]

The early diagnosis of short stature is essential for effective management and treatment. Investigations for children with growth failure are required to distinguish between idiopathic short stature due to physiological variants (familial short stature, and constitutional delays of growth and puberty, or both), primary causes of short stature, such as syndromic and/or genetic defects and skeletal dysplasia, and secondary growth deficits due to endocrine or other chronic disorders such as celiac disease, Crohn's disease, malnutrition, renal, anorexia nervosa or other chronic diseases.

Human adult height has been increasing world-wide for a century and a half. The rate of increase depends on time and place of measurement. Final height appears to have reached a plateau in Northern European countries but it is still increasing in southern European countries as well as Japan. While mean birth length has not changed recently in industrialized countries, the secular trend finally observed in adult height mostly originates during the first 2 years of life. Secular trend in growth is a marker of public health and provides insights into the interaction betw[...]

Adipsic diabetes insipidus is a rare complication of intracranial tumors in which impaired antidiuretic hormone secretion is associated with the loss of thirst sensation. Here, we present the case of a patient with bifocal intracranial germinoma, diagnosed due to symptoms mainly caused by adipsic diabetes insipidus. This is, to our knowledge, the first case of adipsic diabetes insipidus revealing an intracranial germinoma reported in the literature. We describe the diagnostic procedures and the three-year fol[...]
