We provide estimates of the prevalence, incidence and remission of difficult bladder emptying symptoms (prostatism) among noninstitutionalized men 60 years old and older living in a community in the United States. The prevalence of 1 or more symptoms of prostatism (hesitancy, straining, weak stream, intermittency or use of a catheter) among men who never(More)
Heavy lead exposure has been connected to cardiovascular disease, but modest exposures encountered in the general environment have not been associated previously with disease risk. The relationship between blood lead levels and blood pressures was examined using data from the second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. A direct relationship was(More)
To estimate the necessity of air ions (AIs) as a natural source of atmospheric gaseous superoxide for mammalia the effect of air ion deprivation on mice and rats was investigated. Ambient air deionization inside an experimental acrylic glass cage (AGC) was performed by electrostatic field, built up by acrylic glass surfaces. Under these conditions, four(More)
Glucose tolerance data from the second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were analyzed to determine factors predicting fasting plasma glucose levels and glucose tolerance in a representative US population. Central adiposity (subscapular skinfolds), age, and family history of diabetes were the major predictors of fasting levels and of glucose(More)
We reported that difficult bladder emptying symptoms are prevalent in elderly men. Urodynamic tests were conducted among 94 volunteer male respondents identified from our Medical Epidemiologic and Social Aspects of Aging Study in Washtenaw County, Michigan. Urine flow rates were significantly slower among men with symptoms compared to those without(More)
BACKGROUND Bone mineral content (BMC) and density (BMD) have been shown to diminish after fracture and immobilization in adults. Distal radius fractures are common in children, and unlike adults, there is a low incidence of refracture. The primary aim of this study was to assess the change in radial BMC and BMD after upper extremity fracture and casting in(More)
We investigated changes in serum triglyceride, cholesterol, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLC) levels during etretinate administration in 21 patients with psoriasis. Mean serum triglyceride and cholesterol values showed a statistically significant increase during etretinate therapy compared with placebo treatment; mean HDLC levels did not(More)
