Meal replacement as a weight loss strategy for night shift workers with obesity: a protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Piumika Sooriyaarachchi, Ranil Jayawardena, Toby Pavey & Neil A. King
Abstract Background Shift work is considered a risk factor for a number of chronic health conditions including obesity. Weight reduction in obese patients lowers the risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, certain cancers, and mortality. Achieving a negative energy balance by providing low-calorie meal replacements is widely used for weight management. This study aims to evaluate the impact of a low-calorie “meal-replacement” on the weight and metabolic parameters of shift workers with obesity. Methods This trial...

Effects of meditation on physiological and metabolic parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus “MindDM”: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

K. P. C. Dalpatadu, P. Galappatthy, P. Katulanda & S. Jayasinghe
Abstract Background Sri Lanka is faced with the challenge of managing a large population with diabetes mellitus by 2030. Psychological stress plays a major role in disease outcome by exerting physiological, psychological and social effects on individuals with chronic disorders. Meditation-based interventions have positive effects on the management of stress and diabetes, which are mediated via modulation of neuro-humoral mechanisms and autonomic functions, among others. Mechanisms of bio-physiological effects of meditation are considered to be...

Global child and adolescent mental health perspectives: bringing change locally, while thinking globally

Sowmyashree Mayur Kaku, Jordan Sibeoni, Salah Basheer, Jane Pei-Chen Chang, Dulangi Maneksha Amerasinghe Dahanayake, Matias Irarrazaval, Jamie M Lachman, Boladale Moyosore Mapayi, Anilena Mejia, Massimiliano Orri, Tze Jui-Goh, Md Saleh Uddin & Inge Vallance
Abstract Child and adolescent mental health (CAMH) are a global priority. Different countries across the globe face unique challenges in CAMH services that are specific to them. However, there are multiple issues that are also similar across countries. These issues have been presented in this commentary from the lens of early career CAMH professionals who are alumni of the Donald J Cohen Fellowship program of the IACAPAP. We also present recommendations that can be implemented...
