  • Association of Food Insecurity With Malnutrition and Cognitive Status in
           Elderly Referred to Outpatient Clinics of Milad Hospital in Tehran

      Authors: Zeifoddini; Aida; Qorbani, Mostafa; Ataie-Jafari, Asal
      Abstract: imageFood insecurity can cause adverse effects on the physical and mental health of the elderly. This study aimed to investigate the association among food insecurity, malnutrition, and cognitive impairment in elderly. To assess malnutrition, cognitive status, and food insecurity, the questionnaires Mini Nutritional Assessment, Mini-Mental State Examination, and the Household Food Insecurity Access Scale were used. There was a significant association between food insecurity and malnutrition (odds ratio [OR] = 5.36; 95% confidence interval [CI], 2.18-13.17; P < .001). The odds of cognitive impairment in the elderly with food insecurity were also more than 4 times higher than those with food security (OR = 4.35; CI, 1.78-10.59; P = .01). Because of the association between food insecurity, malnutrition, and cognitive impairment, food security in the elderly should be considered.

  • Food Insecurity in College Students: The Role of Environment, Social
           Networks, and Perceived Food-Related Time, Stress, and Skill

      Authors: Cuy Castellanos; Diana; Holcomb, Jeanne
      Abstract: imageUsing a mixed-methods approach, the purpose of this study was to identify contributing factors and their relationship to food insecurity at a midsize, private university. During semistructured interviews (N = 23), students discussed social and environmental factors related to food insecurity, as well as the individual factors of food-related time, stress, and skill. A short questionnaire measuring the individual factors was developed and implemented with the US Department of Agriculture food security survey (N = 270). Between the food secure and insecure groups, there were significant differences in relation to food-related time, stress, and skill (P < .01). Identifying specific factors can inform campus-specific interventions to address food insecurity.

  • Food Addiction and Consumption of Ultraprocessed Foods Among Undergraduate
           Nutrition and Dietetics Students

      Authors: Ünal; Gökçe; Uçar, Aslı
      Abstract: imageThe aim of this study was to determine food addiction and consumption of ultraprocessed foods among undergraduate nutrition and dietetics students according to academic year. A total of 238 students participated in this cross-sectional study. The ultraprocessed food consumption frequency was assessed and the Yale Food Addiction Scale was applied. The overall prevalence of food addiction was 10.5%. The mean symptom count for food addiction was lower in the fourth year than in the first and second years (P = .002). The frequency of processed meat (r = −0.441, P < .001) and donut consumption (r = −0.309, P < .001) showed a moderate negative linear relationship with the increase in academic years.

  • Higher Intakes of Soft Drinks Are Associated With Anxiety, Depression, and

      Authors: Ikram; Mashta; Shahbaz, Hafiz Muhammad; Ahmed, Waqas; Khan, Zahra; Tahir, Sajid Khan; Akram, Kashif
      Abstract: imageThis cross-sectional study was used to investigate the association of carbonated soft drink (CSD) intake with symptoms of anxiety, depression, and bone health in university students in Pakistan. Daily intake of CSDs was significantly correlated with an increased risk of anxiety, depression, and low bone mineral density (BMD) (P-trend = .000) compared with consumption of less than 1 CSD per week. About one-third of participants reported a moderate anxiety level, 26.4% reported a moderate depression level, and 7.8% reported a severe depression level. Furthermore, 67.2% of participants classified with osteopenia and 8.6% classified with osteoporosis. University students having high consumption of CSDs had significantly higher levels of anxiety, depression, and low BMD.

  • Preventive Effects of Prenatal Folic Acid on Postpartum Depression: A
           Retrospective Cohort Study

      Authors: Feng; Xueqin; Wang, Chunxia; Wang, Fuling; Zhang, Xiaoyun; Shu, Hua; Chen, Hui; Duan, Liting; Wei, Yuxi; Wang, Jishui; Man, Dongmei; Zhang, Fanyong
      Abstract: imageThis study was conducted to assess the association of prenatal folic acid (PF) supplements on the onset of postpartum depression (PPD) in Chinese women. Of the 629 subjects, 540 were cases who took PF supplements and 89 were controls who did not take PF. Univariate analysis showed that maternal age and body mass index were the most significant risk factors for developing PPD. Threshold effect analysis showed that maternal age of more than 26 years was an independent determinant of PPD. Current findings with PF supplements are insufficient to attenuate the onset of PPD.

  • Use of an Escape Room to Enhance Nutrition Care Process Skills and
           Self-efficacy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Wright; Lauri; Asare, Irene; Harris, Michel; Colin, Casey
      Abstract: imageApplication of the Nutrition Care Process (NCP) is a fundamental concept for students preparing to become registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs). Adequate practice, within pedagogical methods designed to mimic actual dietetics practice scenarios as realistically as possible, is necessary to increase student NCP skill proficiency and confidence. This study assessed the impact of a virtual escape room experience compared with a traditional case study on both NCP skills and confidence in a senior didactic program in dietetics for undergraduate students. Results indicate that the escape room experience improved both NCP documentation (P < .001) and student self-efficacy (P < .001).

  • A Nationwide Survey of Clinical Dietitians' Perceptions of Precepting:
           Benefits and Barriers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hernandez; Jennifer L.; Lopez, Nanette V.; Clifford, Dawn E.; Ross, Vicki D.
      Abstract: imageClinical preceptor shortages are a limiting factor for programs in dietetics. Perceptions on precepting were obtained from 378 registered dietitian nutritionists. The top benefits of precepting included improved teaching skills, staying current/stimulated in the profession, and increased awareness of practice area. Frequently reported barriers included inadequate compensation, time, and reward. People who had not precepted in the past year indicated higher perceived benefits of precepting. Those who indicated they would discontinue precepting reported significantly fewer benefits and more barriers than those who would continue. Finding and addressing barriers among a program's preceptor pool may be key to promoting preceptorship.

  • A Simple Scale That Can Be Used to Screen Visceral Obesity: Mini
           Nutritional Assessment

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bahşi; Remzi; Üstüner, Evren; Atmiş, Volkan; Coşarderelioğlu, Çağlar; Mut Sürmeli, Deniz; Turgut, Tuğba; Selvi Öztorun, Hande; Yalçin, Ahmet; Varli, Murat; Aras, Sevgi
      Abstract: imageA possible relationship between the Mini Nutritional Assessment Short Form (MNA-SF) and visceral fat thickness (VFT) in 390 participants 60 years and older was investigated. VFT was measured by ultrasonography as the distance between the inner wall of the rectus abdominis and the anterior abdominal aortic wall. The risk of visceral obesity increased with the increase in MNA-SF values independent of age, gender, diabetes mellitus, and alcohol history (odds ratio = 1.534, 95% CI 1.176–2.002, P = .002). The optimal cut-off point of the MNA-SF to predict visceral obesity was measured as 12.5 (area under the curve = 0.617, 95% CI 0.558–0.676). Our findings suggest that the MNA-SF may be useful in visceral obesity screening.
