Despite the established role of foot care education in diabetes management, reports evaluating such interventions are rare. The effectiveness of an intensive foot care intervention programme and a conventional one were therefore compared in Type 2 diabetes. The intensive group showed significantly greater improvements than the conventional group in...

The aim of this study was to compare the effects of an intensive educational approach incorporating longer time, greater simplicity, repetition, and cognitive motivational techniques with a conventional one in subjects with established non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) whose weight, glycemic control, and diet were not optimal. Subject...
Article
The efficacy of supplemental iodine in correcting hypothyroidism in adults and older children with endemic myxedematous cretinism is not known. To investigate this issue we administered im iodized oil (1.5 mL) to 28 hypothyroid endemic cretins (TSH, greater than 5 mIU/L) from western China, aged 14-52 yr (mean = 29 SD = 11 yr). Clinical examination...
Article
To determine the interrelationships among neuroticism, general arousability, sexual desire, and sexual dysfunction in women, two studies were conducted. The first found a significant positive correlation between general arousability and neuroticism. The second found a curvilinear relationship between general arousability and sexual dysfunction, and...
Article
Neurolinguistic programmers claim that eye movement and other assessment (usually of verbal predicates in spoken language) of PRS (the favored system for processing sensory data) converge to define the same system. In this artifact-controlled study with 190 psychology and counseling students, PRS assessed by including or excluding first and last ey...
Article
Intercorrelations among general trait arousability, emerging sexual desire, current sexual desire, lack of sexual desire perceived as a problem, and sexual dysfunction were assessed in 65 women currently involved in marital or de facto heterosexual relationships. The Stimulus Screening Test was used to measure general arousability and the Assessmen...
Article
Intelligence was measured by means of the Hiskey-Nebraska Test of Learning Aptitude or the Griffiths Mental Development Scales in a sample of 369 patients from iodine-deficient rural villages (Baihuyao), iodine-sufficient rural villages (Huanglo) and urban populations to test for the damaging effects of iodine deficiency on the development of the n...
Article
Evaluation of some of the physical variables recorded during an intake of patients into the Macquarie University Weight Control Program is reported. Measures from 43 females aged between 19 and 66 years were taken prior to therapy and 15 weeks later. All subjects lost weight, the range being from 1 to 19 kg, and significant reductions on 14 anthrop...
Article
Investigated depth of trance and the components of susceptibility (the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility—Form A) as outcome variables in 47 female patients in a weight-reduction program involving hypnosis and in 46 program dropouts. Significant reductions were found in measures of anthropometry following treatment. A significant depth...
Article
At the conclusion of a treatment program for obesity, the influence of age and several pretreatment measures of body proportion (weight, height, symphysis height, finger tip span, body surface area, and linearity index) on weight loss were assessed. All 42 volunteering females lost weight; however, the extent of loss was uninfluenced by the above v...
Article
The relationship between hypnotic responsiveness as measured by the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A (HGSHS:A) of Shor and E. Orne (1962) and global depth estimates derived from an 11-point scale were explored in 2 clinical samples. In one case, depth estimates were made just before, and in the other, immediately following the...
Chapter
Body recognition was studied in fifteen female patients with anorexia nervosa and 15 age matched controls, using a distorted image on a video monitor. The patients showed a greater tendency to over- and underestimate their body shape than the controls. The patients’ desired body shape was significantly thinner than that of controls, as was their es...
Article
Describes 3 tests for the measurement of conscious and unconscious aspects of body image. Normative data for a homonyms test are presented together with the results of psychometric analyses and instructions for administration. An objective body image test is also described in detail. These paper-and-pencil tests for tapping unconscious concern with...
Article
The Secord Homonym Test was used to elicit unconscious concerns about the body in one normal and two obese samples. The first sample of nonobese subjects was used to gather baseline data and also to examine the discriminant validity of the test as a measure of unconscious rather than conscious body concern. In a second sample of obese subjects a si...
Article
Video-image representations of body size were measured on a television monitor that was modified to give a display continuum that ranged from 50% under- to 50% over-estimation of objective size. Sixty-eight females who were undergoing weight reduction counseling were measured before and after treatment. All Ss judged themselves to be significantly...

... Keine dieser nachweislich wichtigen Variablen tauchen in der Beschreibung der NLP-Variante der Zielsetzung auf. Stattdessen geht es um das Imaginieren der Ziele mit allen Sinnen, die unbedingte Formulierung der Ziele in der Gegenwartsform oder die Kombination von Zielen mit »Ankern« (Cooper, 2009;Seidl, 2011 (Jupp, 1989) oder nach einer 21-tägigen NLP-Ausbildung weniger ängstlich (Duncan, Konefal & Spechler, 1990), dafür aber sozial reflektierter sind (Konefal, Duncan & Rees, 1992) (Sharpley, 1987;Sturt et al., 2012;Witkowski, 2010Witkowski, , 2012.

... Hypnotizability was not a significant predictor of weight loss or other outcomes in our patients, which is in line with some studies and a recent meta-analysis (7,38,39) but unlike others showing a significant relationship between hypnotic susceptibility and weight-loss outcomes (10,40,41). ...
... However, some populations have evidence of both neurological and myxoedematous cretinism ( Boyages and Halpern, 1993), and dietary goitrogens, hereditary predisposition, the presence of gastrointestinal diseases, and a greater susceptibility of females may also contribute to the complex causation and expression of the disease ( Ermans et al., 1972;Eastman and Phillips, 1988;Thilly et al., 1993;Vanderpas, 2006). Clinically, neurological cretins are usually distinguished by the presence of goitre, extreme mental retardation, deaf-mutism, squint and motor spasticity, and myxoedematous cretins by extreme growth retardation, facial dysmorphism, myxedema and less severe mental retardation ( Collins et al., 1987;Eastman and Phillips, 1988;Boyages and Halpern, 1993). However, with the exception of extreme dwarfism, the literature is unclear over whether the two forms of the disease can be separated by the development of particular sets of skeletal and dental traits ( Finkbeiner, 1923;Nager, 1933;Hill, 1936;Quervain and Wegelin, 1936;Wilkins, 1941;Dreyfus et al., 1950;Bellini and Neves, 1956;Middlemass, 1959;Tumay et al., 1962;Borg et al., 1975;Israel et al., 1983;Ortner and Hotz, 2005). ...
... 96 A 1991 study reported a reduction in diabetic foot-related complications after an intervention to improve foot self-checks. 97 However, a recent systematic review revealed little agreement on the optimal strategy to help patients and family members become proficient with routine foot care at home. 98 Standardization and optimization of foot selfchecks are warranted. ...
... For example, whatever the cause of thyroid destruction in myxedematous cretins, it appears not operative at birth but becomes an important factor with increasing age. Considering that the clinical status of the myxedematous cretins were subsequently modified by the duration length and severity of hypothyroidism (11,12), we were curious that whether the neurological cretins also have thyroid function or clinical status changes with increasing age. ...
... Interventions that improve adherence are critical for reducing risk factors and preventing adverse health outcomes [8]. As greater adherence to dietary advice is an essential component for preventing the onset and progression of many diet-related chronic diseases, interventions to improve patient adherence to dietary advice using various techniques have been developed [9,10]. To identify these interventions, we conducted a Cochrane systematic review to assess the effects of interventions enhancing adherence to dietary advice for preventing and managing chronic diseases in adults [11]. ...
... This result highlights the importance of patients' subjective perception while prescribing antidepressants and confirms the findings of previous studies [Abolfotouh and al-Helali, 2001; Danoff et al., 2006]. SD has been reported to be associated with neuroticism [Jupp and McCabe, 1989; Morozov and Gorbov, 1990; Rozhkov, 1999] . Neuroticism, general arousability , sexual desire, and sexual dysfunction in women were found to be significantly intercorrelated [Jupp and McCabe, 1989]. ...
... However, severe iodine deficiency in pregnancy especially in first trimester and in childhood is a risk factor and has a devastating effects on intellectual function in the offspring [27]. Globally, several studies have served as evidence that people living in regions of iodine deficiency areas are either intellectually very weak or have mild to moderate neurological disorders [28]. We could only find one study in our subjects of interest which proved that maternal hypothyroidism constitutes a risk factor for an abnormal neurobehavioral development of affected child [29]. ...
... Patients with CPP reported more sexual problems than women with any other type of chronic pain problem [206]. The quality of intimate relationships is closely connected with sexual function [207]. Satisfaction with sexual relationships appears to be associated with higher marital functioning [208]. ...
... Based on the early studies, the standard (self) scoring of the HGSHS:A is called and considered to be an instrument that yields objective data about the responsiveness of the individual, as opposed to the subjective indices (e.g., hypnotic depth, involuntariness score, and so on, see, e.g., Bongartz, 1985;Gwynn, Spanos, Gabora, & Jarrett, 1988;Jupp, Collins, & McCabe, 1985;Kirsch, Council, & Wickless, 1990;Laurence & Perry, 1982, etc.). ...
