Nutrition transition and double burden of undernutrition and excess of weight in Brazil.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:15:21 +0100 | The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
CONCLUSIONS: In Brazil, the current prevalence of excess weight is at least 3-fold higher than that of undernutrition. The lowest prevalence rate in the last period analyzed was observed in children <5 y of age. Inclusive social policies have succeeded in reducing poverty and in identifying new challenges related to obesity control or reduction.

Does Chile's nutritional situation constitute a double burden?
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:15:19 +0100 | The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
CONCLUSIONS: The data showed high rates of obesity with very low frequency of stunting and, although more information is needed, the double burden of malnutrition probably does not exist in Chile, unlike in other countries in the region. Among specific groups there are low intakes of critical nutrients and food insecurity. Surveys that include anthropometric and biochemical measurements at the family level are needed to correctly evaluate the double burden of malnutrition in Chile.

The dual burden of malnutrition in Colombia.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:15:17 +0100 | The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
CONCLUSIONS: National estimates of the dual burden of malnutrition in Colombia are lower than expected. Despite the independence of the occurrence of these conditions, the fact that the dual burden coexists at the national, household, and intraindividual levels suggests that public policies should address both conditions through multiple strategies. It is imperative to evaluate the current nutrition policies to inform malnutrition prevention efforts in Colombia and to share lessons with other countries at a similar stage of nutritional transition.

The double burden of undernutrition and excess body weight in Ecuador.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:15:15 +0100 | The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
CONCLUSIONS: This article shows the coexistence of high rates of undernutrition and OW/OB at the individual, household, and national levels in Ecuador. Although integrated approaches to address the emerging double burden are required, public health policies to date have not responded adequately.

The double burden of malnutrition in indigenous and nonindigenous Guatemalan populations.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:15:12 +0100 | The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
CONCLUSIONS:: In Guatemala, DBM is more prevalent in indigenous than in nonindigenous populations at the household and individual levels. To enhance effectiveness, current strategies of national policies and programs should consider DBM and focus on indigenous populations.

The double burden of undernutrition and excess body weight in Mexico.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:15:10 +0100 | The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
CONCLUSIONS: Although some prevalences of double burden were lower than expected, assuming independent distributions of the 2 conditions, the coexistence of stunting, overweight or obesity, and anemia at the national, household, and intraindividual levels in Mexico calls for policies and programs to prevent the 3 conditions.

Double burden of undernutrition and obesity in Uruguay.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:15:08 +0100 | The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
CONCLUSIONS: The data suggest that there is a nutritional double burden in Uruguay. This nutritional burden is similar to that of other countries in the region. This important public issue should be tackled, and it should be addressed in early infancy.

Obesity and early evidence of cardiovascular abnormality
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 10:25:42 +0100 | The Journal of Pediatrics
In adults, it is clear that obesity plays an important role in elevating risk for cardiovascular outcomes such as myocardial infarction and stroke. It has been somewhat less clear if childhood and adolescent obesity also increases risk of cardiovascular disease. There are several potential lines of evidence that could be helpful in establishing that relationship. One is evidence that obesity in young individuals is already associated with markers of risk for cardiovascular disease. (Source: The Journal of Pediatrics)

[Deep Brain Stimulation: New Frontier in the Treatment of CNS Disorders.]
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 08:50:06 +0100 | Acta Medica Portuguesa
Conclusions: In most of these clinical situations, deep brain stimulation is a safe and useful therapeutic resource that must be considered whenever the usual therapies are useless or not enough; in the other cases a greater experience is needed to make it a regular indication.
