  • Since the late 1990s, the volume of research on gender issues in mental health has grown significantly. One important point that the gender literature has demonstrated, in addition to clarifying how women’s health differs from that of men’s, is how little we actually know about men’s mental health concerns. Although the great body of research in mental health has historically been based on men, until recently the research has largely failed to address how male gender integrally influences the clinical presentation and treatment of various disorders.

  • A representative sample survey of 1273 persons aged 60 and older living in private households was conducted in an area covering over half of Cambodia's population which includes Phnom Penh and the five most populated provinces (Kampong Cham, Kandal, Prey Veng, Battambang, and Takeo). 1 The location of the provinces covered are shown in Figure 1. Sampling procedures are described in detail in Appendix A. Samples were drawn separately for Phnom Penh and the other five provinces taken collectively using somewhat different procedures for the two domains.

  • As with other age groups, more older women than older men experience depression, but rates decrease among women after menopause. 13 Evidence suggests that depression in post-menopausal women generally occurs in women with prior histories of depression. In any case, depression is NOT a normal part of aging. The death of a spouse or loved one, moving from work into retirement, or dealing with a chronic illness can leave women and men alike feeling sad or distressed.

  • Here we tried to map the dependency among aged in India. This is done across four sub groups, Rural Male, Rural female, urban male and urban female. In India in both categories of full and partial dependency, more than 80 percent of the women fall. In the national level more than 70 percent of the elderly are fully dependent in both female categories in both rural and urban areas (72.07 and 72.12) while it is just over 30 in the case of men (32.7 and 30.11). Kerala is the toper in the Rural male section with more than 43% are...

  • For each of the three external sources, in addition to national results, results limited to the six province area covered by the SEC are also shown to increase comparability with the SEC. As comparisons between national and SEC area results from the external sources make clear, the older population in the six SEC provinces resembles fairly closely the older population at the national level, at least with respect to the characteristics included in the table.

  • The PSA criteria used to recommend a diagnostic prostate biopsy have evolved over time. The goal is to increase the sensitivity of the test for younger men more likely to die of the disease and to reduce the frequency of detecting cancers of low malignant potential in elderly men more likely to die of other causes. Age-specific reference ranges reduce the upper limit of normal for younger men and increase it for older men. Different thresholds alter the sensitivity and specificity of detection. The threshold for performance of a biopsy was 4.0 ng/mL, which has been reduced to 2.6...

  • We do not see significant differences in behavior of the younger and older subjects. Somewhat surprisingly subjects more often than not chose the lower average payoff decks. Among older subjects, 58% chose the lower payoff decks on four or more of the six choices, while 59% of the younger subjects did so (Table 1 and Figure 3). The proportions were similar across age groups for each of the six different deck pairs Older women were significantly more likely than older men to choose the lower mean, higher variance decks (Figure 4).Of the 54 choices made by the...

  • Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. Every year there are 34,986 new cases in England and Wales and 10,000 deaths1 . Prostate cancer is predominantly a disease of older men but around 20% of cases occur in men under the age of 65 years. Over the past 10 to 15 years there have been a number of significant advances in prostate cancer management but also a number of major controversies, especially about the clinical management of men with early, non-metastatic disease.

  • Being a man should not seriously damage your health, conclude White and Banks (2004) in their chapter in a men’s health text. The maxim is used at the beginning of this text to remind the practice nurse of the fact that being a man in some instances can and does seriously damage their health. Men are much less likely to visit their general practice than women. Those men who are aged under 45 years visit their general practice only half as often as women; it is only when they become older that the gap narrows signifi cantly....

  • American men face a staggering array of health concerns. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 70 percent of American men are overweight, a key predictor of future health problems. Almost 25 percent smoke, another key risk factor. One in five American men has heart disease, and 29 percent aged twenty and older suffer from hypertension. More than 11 percent of men face a limitation in their usual activities due to chronic health conditions. In addition, the medical concerns men face often differ from those of most concern to women.

  • Because competition can improve quality and drive down costs, governments should foster com- petition and diversity in the supply of health ser- vices and inputs, particularly drugs, supplies, and equipment. This could include, where feasible, private supply of health care services paid for by governments or social insurance.

  • I said, 'Hi! Donna, this is Jack. Jack, this is Donna.' Donna gave him a big smile. Her smile usually makes men weak in the legs. Susie has freckles, and she hates them! 'When I'm older they'll be one BIG freckle, all over me!' she thinks. And Susie has problems with boys. 'Great legs, but I don't like the freckles,' one boy says about her. Her best friend, Donna, never has problems with boys. Donna has pretty hair, nice teeth and blue eyes — and she hasn't got freckles! Boys fall at her feet. But now there's a new...

  • The sex distribution in SEC is reasonably close to that in the 1998 census and 2000 DHS. The 1999 Socioeconomic Survey is somewhat out of line with the other sources. Likewise, the age distribution of older persons in the SEC is quite similar to that in the other sources. The marital status distribution in the SES for men is also fairly similar to that found in the other three sources but not for women. The SEC sample has relatively fewer women who are currently married and relatively more who are widowed than indicated by the census and the...

More than 12 percent of women face a limitation in their usual activities due to chronic health conditions. In addition, 62 percent of women aged twenty years and older are overweight, a key predictor of future health problems. Moreover, the medical concerns women face often differ from those of most concern to men.

  • The vast majority of Buddhists also indicated that they meditated during the past month and just over half indicated they meditated at least several times a week. Elderly women meditate somewhat more frequently than men. Provincial elders also reported more frequent meditation than those in Phnom Penh. However older elderly meditate more frequently than younger elderly, a finding that is consistent with the higher percentage of older elderly who indicate religion is very important for them.

  • Listening to the radio is fairly common among elders although only half do so daily or almost daily and just over one fourth do not listen to the radio at all. Elders who are men, live in Phnom Penh, or are younger are more likely to listen to the radio and to listen to frequently than elders who are women, live in the provinces, or are older. TV watching is somewhat less common than listening to the radio. Two fifths of Cambodian elders indicate they did not watch TV during the last month while only modestly more...

  • Other adjustments include the incorporation of body mass index, the use of finasteride, percentage free PSA and [-2]pro-PSA. It should be noted that the results of the Cancer Risk Calculator for prostate cancer may not be applicable to all men as most participants in the PCPT were Caucasian, and results may not be applicable to men of other races. In addition, most men in this study underwent a sextant prostate biopsy. This has now been largely superseded by an increase in the number of systematic biopsies taken routinely (Heidenreich et al. 2010).
