Abstract

Each year in the world, especially in Indonesia, many elderly people exposed to higher risk of dementia due to an increased number of the elderly population and the incidence of mild cognitive impairment in the elderly. The aim of this study is to find out what factors are related with cognitive function in the elderly population. The study used analytic method with cross sectional study design. Subjects were 60 elderly people; male or female ≥ 60 years old. Data were analysed with Chi Square Test (α = 0.05). Cognitive function was measured by MMSE test. The result were found a significant relation between age and cognitive function ( p = 0.014), level of education and cognitive function (p value = 0.000), physical activity and cognitive function (p value = 0.003), cognitive activity and cognitive function (p value = 0.002), and social interaction and cognitive function (p value = 0.000). Gender variable did not have relation with cognitive function (p value = 0.343). This study conclude that there was a relation between age, education level, physical activity, cognitive activity and social interaction with cognitive function in the elderly population. There was no relation between gender and cognitive function in the elderly population.Keywords: cognitive function, cognitive impairment, elderly, MMSE

Abstract

Cancer cell have been shown to extensively use glucose for proliferation, even at hypoxia environment. The consumption of glucose in a hypoxia environment induced HIF and VEGF, which play a role in cancer cell infiltration process . The objective of study is to determine the relationship between fasting blood glucose levels with the amount of infiltrated axillary lymph node in patients with infiltrating ductal carcinoma. This is an analytic observational study with cross sectional design. The data obtained were tested with chi-square test (α < 0.05). This study was conducted on 24 infiltrating ductal carcinoma patients. The results showed p value of 0.004, indicating there is a significant correlation between fasting blood glucose levels with the amount of infiltrated axillary lymph nodes. The correlation coefficient ( r) value was 0.505; indicating medium level correlation. As conclusion, there is a significant correlation between fasting blood glucose levels with the amount of infiltrated axillary lymph node in patients with infiltrating ductal carcinoma.Keywords: axillary lymph nodes, breast cancer, fasting blood glucose level, infiltrating ductal carcinoma

Abstract

Prostate enlargement is the most quality of life-impacted problem in elderly. Proper diagnoses and prostate volume prediction are important in considering the best treatment. PSA is a glycoprotein specifically secreted by prostate glands and influenced by various condition, such as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). The aim of this study is to identify the correlation between PSA serum level and prostate mass volume. This was a descriptive study with cross-sectional design that conducted at Bhayangkara Hospital Mataram on April 2015. Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation test and multiple regression logistic, to determine the relationship between PSA serum levels and prostate mass volume. The average PSA level was 34,62 ng/mL (1,82-30,70 ng/mL), and the average prostate mass volume were 72,57cc. There was correlation between PSA serum levels with prostate mass volume ( r = 0,384, p = 0,815). Conclusion, there is a relationship between PSA levels with prostate volume in BPH patients in Bhayangkara Mataram hospital.Keywords: Bhayangkara Hospital Mataram, BPH, prostate volume, PSA

Abstract

Elderly people are a group of people with age of 60 and above. Studies in United States showed one-third of elderly people experienced fall in their houses and one-forty of them need bedrest in hospital. Falling can cause physical and mental injury. Physical injury manifests as fracture, hematoma, bruises, and dislocation, and mental injury manifests as lack of self esteem. This study aimed to examine the relation between age and gender on risk of fall on elderly people. This is a cross-sectional analytical study involving 23 elderly people from Tulus Kasih Elderly Home that met the inclusion criteria. Risk of fall were checked with Timed Up and Go Test. The data acquired were analyzed with chi-square with α = 0,05. As results, age significantly affected risk of fall (p=0.019) but gender did not (p=0.265). We concluded the risk of falling is increased with age and unaffected by gender.Keywords : age, gender, risk of fall, timed up and go test

This study was a parallel randomized clinical trial. Subjects were 30 diabetic elderly living in four nursing homes in Jakarta. In the study subjects were assigned to two groups using block randomization. All subjects had to take diabetic regiment with calorie and macronutrient following diabetic recommendation diet. The treatment group (n=16) received tempe, while control group (n=14) received legumes other than tempe. Fasting plasma glucose level (FPG) was assessed before and after intervention. Unpaired t test and Mann Whitney were used to analyzed data with the 5% significance level. There were 27 subjects completed the study: 15 of treatment group and 12 of control group. Both group were comparable in age, gender, BMI, calorie and macronutrient intake before treatment. Fat, fiber, and isoflavone intake were significantly higher in treatment group compare to control group. Decrease in FPG after intervention were observed but were statisticaly insignificant. In conclusion daily intake of 100 grams tempe for four weeks did not decrease FPG.  Keywords: elderly, plasma glucose level, tempe, type 2 diabetes
