diabetes ancillary services such as podiatry, and the inability to maintain a region-wide register of diabetic patients. Spencer et all are right to point out that only a mix of primary and secondary preventive strategies will eventually bring the epidemic of renal disease among Australian Aboriginals under control. As the epidemiologist Last has pointed out, "Preventative services offered in the absence of any provision for treatment of existing and perceived disease are unlikely to be readily… Expand

Occurrence of lactational mastitis and medical management: A prospective cohort study in Glasgow
TLDR
One in six women is likely to experience one or more episodes of mastitis whilst breastfeeding, and a small but clinically important proportion of women continue to receive inappropriate management advice from health professionals which, if followed, could lead them to unnecessarily deprive their infants prematurely of the known nutritional and immunological benefits of breast milk. Expand
Prevalence and Risk Factors of Lactation Mastitis in Three Hospitals in Cameroon: A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
One in seven women is likely to have mastitis during breastfeeding, and most of the women are not aware of breastfeeding techniques and practice substandard breastfeeding hygiene that predisposes them to mastitis and to possible premature cessation of breastfeeding. Expand
A descriptive study of mastitis in Australian breastfeeding women: incidence and determinants
TLDR
The prevention and improved management of nipple damage could potentially reduce the risk of lactating women developing mastitis and there was no association between breastfeeding duration and mastitis. Expand
Determinants of mastitis in women in the CASTLE study: a cohort study
TLDR
Nipple damage, over-supply of breast milk, use of nipple shields and the presence of S. aureus on the nipple or in breast milk increased the mastitis risk in the CASTLE study sample, suggesting reducing nipple damage may help reduce maternal breast infections. Expand

TLDR
SM during lactation was closely associated with admission time after the occurrence of acute mastitis, galactostasis, primipara, diabetes, and nipple injuries. Expand
Lactation mastitis: occurrence and medical management among 946 breastfeeding women in the United States.
TLDR
Feeding fewer than 10 times per day was protective regardless of whether or not feeding frequency in the same week or the week before mastitis was included in the model, and duration of feeding was not associated with mastitis risk. Expand
Re-examination of old truths: replication of a study to measure the incidence of lactational mastitis in breastfeeding women
  • L. Kvist
  • Medicine
  • International Breastfeeding Journal
  • 2013
TLDR
Researchers must strive to be as exact as possible when reporting definitions and incidences of mastitis and should attempt to identify the true population at risk – in this case, all women who were breastfeeding in the uptake area under study, during a specified time limit. Expand
Lactation Mastitis: A Descriptive Study of the Experience
  • K. Wambach
  • Medicine
  • Journal of human lactation : official journal of International Lactation Consultant Association
  • 2003
TLDR
Data collected via telephone interviews soon after diagnosis and daily through the seventh day after symptom onset documented that symptom intensity was moderate, peaked on the second day, and lasted on average 3 to 4 days. Expand
Incidence of and Risk Factors for Lactational Mastitis: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The wide variability in incidence across contexts suggested that a substantial portion of this burden might be preventable, and provision of care to breastfeeding women at risk for or affected by mastitis is currently constrained by a critical lack of high quality epidemiological evidence. Expand

Incidence of mastitis in breastfeeding women during the six months after delivery: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
A large proportion (20%) of women who were breastfeeding developed mastitis in the six months after delivery, and as general practitioners are commonly consulted about mastitis, it is important that they know how to diagnose and treat this condition. Expand
