Abstract Objectives The objective of this study was to identify and describe different dietary patterns in a nationally representative sample of Greek adults and to assess potential associations with lifestyle characteristics. Study design This was a cross-sectional study. Methods Dietary patterns were derived by principal component analysis using individual dietary data (24-h recall) of 3552 participants of the Hellenic National Nutrition and Health Survey (HNNHS). Analysis of variance and chi-...
Background: Gaps remain on the safety of egg intake on cardiovascular health, setting the study’s aim to investigate the association between quantity and frequency of egg consumption, with established dyslipidemia. Methods: Study participants (N = 3558, 40.3% males) included individuals from the Hellenic National and Nutrition Health Survey (HNNHS), of national representation. Quantity and frequency of egg consumption was determined. Minimally adjusted, multivariable logistic and linear analysis...

Summary Background & aims Malnutrition in the elderly is a multifactorial problem, more prevalent in hospitals and care homes. The absence of a gold standard in evaluating nutritional risk led us to evaluate the efficacy of six nutritional screening tools used in the elderly. Methods Two hundred forty eight elderly patients (129 men, 119 female women, aged 75.2 ± 8.5 years) were examined. Nutritional screening was performed on admission using the following tools: Nutritional Risk Index (NRI), Ge...

Summary Background Poor nutritional status is associated with high rates of healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) among hospitalized elderly patients. Early recognition of patients at risk for HCAIs is important. The Geriatric Nutritional Risk Index (GNRI) is a screening tool able to predict nutrition-related complications. Aim To examine the use of GNRI as a predictor of HCAIs in the acute care setting. Methods A total of 248 consecutive patients aged >65 years, admitted as emergencies to th...
