Summary Background Cardiorespiratory fitness is associated with risk of dementia, but whether temporal changes in cardiorespiratory fitness influence the risk of dementia incidence and mortality is still unknown. We aimed to study whether change in estimated cardiorespiratory fitness over time is associated with change in risk of incident dementia, dementia-related mortality, time of onset dementia, and longevity after diagnosis in healthy men and women at baseline. Methods We linked data from t...

Abstract Background and aims Several risk prediction models for coronary heart disease (CHD) are available today, however, they only explain a modest proportion of the incidence. Circulating microRNAs (miRs) have recently been associated with processes in CHD development, and may therefore represent new potential risk markers. The aim of the study was to assess the incremental value of adding circulating miRs to the Framingham Risk Score (FRS). Methods This is a case-control study with a 10-year...

Abstract Background Both screen time and metabolic syndrome (MetS) are associated with health outcomes. However, limited data exist on the association between screen time and MetS among expatriate adolescents living in United Arab Emirates (UAE). Methods We conducted a cross-sectional school-based study on 473 expatriate adolescents (47% girls) aged 12–18 years in Al-Ain district of Abu Dhabi Emirates in the UAE. Data was collected with the expertise of trained nurses & IDF criteria was used to ...

Abstract Despite all the evidence of health benefits related to physical activity (PA) and cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), low levels of PA have reached pandemic proportions, and inactivity is the fourth leading cause of death worldwide. Lack of time, and inability to self-manage are often cited as main barriers to getting adequate PA. Recently, a new personalized metric for PA tracking named Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) was developed with the aim to make it easier to quantify how much ...

Abstract Purpose Sedentary behaviour (SB) and low physical activity (PA) are independently associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Compared to PA, high cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) has been associated with a higher protection against all-cause mortality and a number of specific diseases. However, this relationship has not been investigated in NAFLD. This study examined the roles of SB and CRF on: i) the likelihood of having NAFLD in the general population, and ii) the risk ...

Background: Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) is a novel activity metric that translates heart rate variations during exercise into a weekly score. Weekly PAI scores assessed at a single point in time were found to associate with lower risk of premature cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality in the general healthy population. However, to date, the associations between long-term longitudinal changes in weekly PAI scores and mortality have not been explored. Purpose: The aim of the present stud...

Purpose Dropout from exercise programs, both in the real world and in research, is a challenge, and more information on dropout predictors is needed for establishing strategies to increase the likelihood of maintaining participants in a prescribed exercise program. The aim of the present study was to determine the dropout rate and its predictors during a 3-yr exercise program in older adults. Methods In total, 1514 men and women (mean ± SD age = 72.4 ± 1.9 yr) were included in the present study....

Abstract Objective To test whether Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI), a personalized metric of physical activity (PA) tracking, is associated with all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality in patients with self-reported CVD and to determine whether these associations change depending on whether contemporary PA recommendations are met. Patients and Methods A total of 3133 patients with CVD (mean [SD] age, 67.6 [10.3] years; 64% men) were followed from the date of participation in th...

We thank Dr. Leggio and colleagues for their comments on our paper [(1)][1]. We agree that we need to increase the efforts to encourage physical activity (PA) as primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD). More specifically, PA that leads to improvements in cardiorespiratory

Abstract Background Individuals with coronary heart disease (CHD) are recommended to be physically active and to maintain a healthy weight. There is a lack of data on how long-term changes in body mass index (BMI) and physical activity (PA) relate to mortality in this population. Objectives This study sought to determine the associations among changes in BMI, PA, and mortality in individuals with CHD. Methods The authors studied 3,307 individuals (1,038 women) with CHD from the HUNT (Nord-Tronde...
