REVIEW
Justin Avery Aunger, Paul Doody, Carolyn Anne Greig
Sedentary behavior has been found to be associated with negative health outcomes independently of physical activity in older adults. This systematic review collates interventions to reduce sedentary behavior in non-working older adults, assessing whether they are effective, feasible, and safe. A systematic search identified 2560 studies across five databases. Studies were included where participants were ≥60 years on average with none younger than 45, and participants did not work >2 days per week. A total of six studies were identified, three of which included control groups, while the other three were repeated-measures pre-post designs...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the vitamin D status of postmenopausal women with early estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer and to compare it with that of healthy postmenopausal women from the same Mediterranean region. STUDY DESIGN AND OUTCOME MEASURES: Data from 691 breast cancer (BC) patients in the B-ABLE cohort were analyzed after recent cancer intervention (recent-BC) or after a minimum of two years since this intervention (long-term-BC). Patients were also stratified by previous chemotherapy exposure (ChT+ and ChT-)...

REVIEW
Sophie Behrman, Jennifer Burgess, Anya Topiwala
Antipsychotic medications are widely prescribed in elderly populations for a range of psychiatric symptoms. Evidence for their efficacy in this population is limited, and such individuals are at increased risk of numerous side-effects, including stroke and death, particularly in those with dementia. There appears to be a mismatch between the current evidence base and what is occurring in clinical practice, especially in the use of antipsychotics to treat delirium and behavioural and psychological disturbance in dementia...

REVIEW
Ulrike Sauer, Vikram Talaulikar, Melanie C Davies
OBJECTIVE: There is uncertainty whether treatment with dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) decreases menopausal symptoms for women in the peri- or postmenopausal phase. A previous systematic review considering this subject suggested that DHEA may slightly improve sexual function compared with placebo (CS. Scheffers, S. Armstrong, AEP. Cantineau, C. Farquhar, V. Jordan Dehydroepiandrosterone for women in the peri- or postmenopausal phase. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2015, Issue 1...

Recognizing that increased knowledge of the perimenopause transition, in advance of experiencing symptoms, can make a positive impact on a woman's menopause experience, this study investigated whether women engage in self-directed learning to inform themselves about menopause, and if they do initiate self-directed learning, what socio-ecological issues may help or hinder their search. Two hundred twenty-seven responses to an online survey were analyzed from women aged 35-55 years. Fewer than half (48%) indicated that they had engaged in any kind of learning action regarding menopause...

Behavioral change theories have been used to support interventions that increase both motivation for and adherence to physical activity programs for breast cancer survivors. Most of the programs can improve psychological health-related quality of life. Depressive and anxious symptoms seem to be associated with some stressors, such as the perception of breast cancer, prognosis, long-term treatment-related side-effects and fear of cancer recurrence. Beyond physical fitness, several physical activity programs for breast cancer survivors have been reported to improve psychosocial wellness and life satisfaction...

OBJECTIVE: Aging and menopause are associated with an adverse cardiometabolic profile, predisposing to cardiovascular disease. Diet may also affect their cardiometabolic risk. The aim of this study is to assess dietary habits and patterns of postmenopausal women and their association with adiposity measures, cardiometabolic parameters and subclinical atherosclerosis. STUDY PROTOCOL: The study will include two parts. The first part consists of cross-sectional evaluation of 750 postmenopausal women recruited consecutively from the Menopause Unit of an academic hospital...

OBJECTIVES: Frailty confers a poor prognosis as it portends an increased risk of disability, dependence, and mortality. Although frailty is generally associated with aging, a marked interindividual variability exists. We compared a range of serum biomarkers of inflammation, fibrosis, and catabolism in three distinct cohorts, consisting of young patients with myocardial infarction, age-matched healthy volunteers, and disease-free centenarians. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective observational registry study...

OBJECTIVES: We explore the differences in the gut microbiota associated with gender and hormonal status. STUDY DESIGN: We included 76 individuals in this study: 17 pre-menopausal women, 19 men matched by age, as a control group for the pre-menopausal women, 20 post-menopausal women and 20 men matched by age as a control group for the post-menopausal women; all 4 groups were also matched by body mass index (BMI) and nutritional background. MAIN MEASUREMENTS: We analyzed the differences in the gut microbiota, endotoxemia, intestinal incretins, pro-inflammatory cytokines, and plasma levels of energy homeostasis regulatory hormones between pre- and post-menopausal women and compared them with their respective male control groups...

OBJECTIVES: A qualitative research study was performed to assess the health and lifestyle behaviors of middle-aged women during the menopause transition, as well as to inform the development of interventions designed to combat menopause symptoms and improve quality of life during and after menopause. STUDY DESIGN: Data were collected from 1611 women via a 21-item questionnaire distributed electronically. Only women who self-reported age ≥40 years and who were either peri-menopausal or post-menopausal were included in the analyses...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of exercise (EXE) alone or exercise combined with dietary supplements (EXE-SUPPL) on body composition and physical performance in subjects 60 years and older with sarcopenic obesity. METHODS: A systematic review was carried out of studies identified through five search engines up to April 15, 2018. We searched for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating EXE or EXE-SUPPL in elderly individuals with sarcopenic obesity for at least six weeks...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of, and risk factors for, sub-types of urinary incontinence (UI) in a nationally representative sample of midlife Bangladeshi women. METHODS: Bangladeshi women, aged 30-59, recruited by multi-stage cluster sampling, completed the Questionnaire for the Diagnosis of Urinary Incontinence. The prevalence and the factors associated with each form of UI were explored using multivariable weighted logistic regression. RESULTS: 59...

OBJECTIVES: The link between postural control and cognition is under-studied, especially in healthy older adults. In the present study, we examined the link between postural control and posture-unrelated attention control. STUDY DESIGN AND OUTCOME MEASURES: Healthy individuals (n = 112) - men aged 77.2 ± 5.5, and two groups of women, aged 78.6 ± 3.5 and 68.9 ± 3.7 - participated in this cross-sectional study. Postural control was assessed by static balance (SB) posturography in eight standing positions, and by two measures of dynamic balance (DB): the Timed Up-and-Go (TUG) test, and the Functional Reach Test (FRT)...

#19
REVIEW
Dudley Robinson, Sanjay Suman
Nocturia, defined as waking at night to pass urine, is a common condition which increases with age. Whilst nocturia is known to have an important effect on quality of life, more recent evidence has linked the symptom with significant morbidity and mortality due to the effects of sleep deprivation on glucose metabolism and the immune system. The causes of nocturia are multifactorial and may be related to urine overproduction, storage disorders and primary sleep disorders. The commonest underlying pathology, however, is nocturnal polyuria, which may be associated with a number of medical conditions...

Mai Stafford, Diana Kuh
OBJECTIVE: We describe sources expected to provide for future care needs among baby-boomers in their late sixties and examine how expectations vary according to earlier health and social experiences. We hypothesised that greater integration in social relationships across adulthood is associated with greater expectation of informal care, and that greater morbidity over a longer time period is associated with greater expectation of formal care. METHOD: The MRC National Survey of Health and Development, a population-based birth cohort study set in mainland Britain, provided data on care expectations for 2135 participants aged 68-69...
