Abstract Aims The aim of this study is to assess the American Diabetes Association (ADA) risk score as a self-assessment screening tool for undiagnosed type 2 diabetes (T2DM) in Iran. Methods In a national survey of risk factors for non-communicable diseases, we included 3458 Iranian adults. The discrimination and validity were assessed using the area under the curve (AUC), sensitivity, specificity, Youden's index, positive and negative predictive values (PPV and NPV). The frequency of high-risk...

BACKGROUND A rise in the global prevalence of severe obesity (body mass index; BMI of ≥35 kg/m2 ) has been reported. In this study, we investigated the trends in the prevalence of severe obesity among Tehranian adults over the past two decades. METHODS A representative sample of 10,045 Tehranians aged ≥19 years were followed from 1999 to 2017. The trends in the prevalence of severe obesity were investigated over six cross-sectional phases with 3.6-year intervals using generalized estimating equa...

INTRODUCTION: Data shows that interactions between dietary factors and genetic variants can modulate the association of polymorphisms such as the Melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) gene with obesity. Considering the limited data available on this topic we aimed to investigate interactions between dietary patterns (DPs) and MC4R polymorphisms in relation to obesity phenotypes. METHODS: This cohort study was performed in the framework of Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study; for eligible participants in thi...

ObjectivesRegarding the inconsistent reports on the potential relationship between cardiometabolic disorders, including metabolic syndrome (MetS), diabetes, hypertension (HTN) and chronic kidney disease (CKD), and elevated serum levels of liver enzymes, we conducted this study to test this hypothesis.MethodsMen and women aged ≥ 19 years participated in the sixth examination of Tehran Lipid and Glucose study (TLGS) were recruited. Anthropometric and demographic measurements, as well as biochemica...

Purpose The current study aimed to investigate the relationship between daily consumption of total polyphenol and its subclasses and the incidence of diabetes. Materials and Methods Eligible adults (n=6,547) were chosen from among participants of the Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study (TLGS) with an average follow-up of 3.0±1.6 years. Dietary intakes were evaluated using a valid and reliable semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire. Biochemical variables and anthropometrics were evaluated at b...

BACKGROUND: Data available on the association between physical activity (PA) and body mass index (BMI) in different periods of life is controversial. Using a parallel latent growth curve modeling (LGCM) approach, the current study aimed to investigate the influence of daily PA on adolescents' BMI over a 12 year follow-up, taking into account their parental risk. METHOD: Participants comprised 1323 adolescents (53.5% girls), aged 12-18 years who had participated in the baseline phase of Tehran Li...

BACKGROUND: The present study aimed to assess the relation between nutrient patterns and changes in adult anthropometric and cardiometabolic factors. METHODS: This study was conducted on 1637 adults participating in the Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study (2005-2008), who were free of cardiovascular diseases and cancer and had completed dietary data. They were followed to the next survey (2008-2011). Dietary intakes were collected and nutrient patterns were obtained. Three year changes in anthropomet...

BACKGROUND: None of the current therapeutic approaches for management of Graves' disease have been able to re-establish normal thyroid function in all patients. OBJECTIVE: To describe the author's 35 years of personal experience in the management of Graves' hyperthyroidism and, in doing so, review current articles published on the long-term medical treatment of hyperthyroidism. METHODS: All published articles related to >/=4 years of continuous antithyroid drugs (ATD) treatment were searched. Fi...
