[THE INVESTIGATION OF THE FREQUENCY OF BODY BUILDING AND THE PREVENTIVE FACTORS OF EATING DISORDERS IN YOUNG MALES]

LUKÁCS Liza, TÚRY Ferenc, ARGALÁSZ Attila, MURÁNYI István

[INTRODUCTION - The risk of eating disorders is higher among young women where a slim body ideal dominates. In contrast, the male body ideal is based on the athletic type. The aim of the present study was to assess the relevance of the athletic ideal as a risk factor in certain professional subcultures of young men with respect to intensive workout and body dissatisfaction. These can be important risk factors of muscle dysmorphia in certain populations. METHOD - Body and eating attitudes, as well as workout habits of 1232 military and “general” college male students were studied using questionnaires. The Eating Disorder Inventory was used for all subjects, and general demographic data and information on their bodybuilding practice were also obtained. RESULTS - General college students had a significantly higher mean body mass index than military students (23.9 vs. 23.5 kg/m2). The prevalence of those engaged in bodybuilding was surprisingly high among the military students (64.5%). Comparisons between and within groups also showed significantly different scores on several subscales of the Eating Disorder Inventory. CONCLUSION - The findings suggest that male military college students tend to have protective factors against the psychopathological features of eating disorders.]

[A NEW WAY OF LONG-TERM ORAL ANTICOAGULANT THERAPY IN HUNGARY]

BODA Zoltán

[Coumarins have been widely used for the prevention of arterial and venous thromboembolism. The importance of oral anticoagulants has steadily increased in internal medicine and cardiology in the past 20 years. Coumarins are vitamin K antagonists by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors in liver cells. Since the average half-life of hydroxycoumarin is longer than that of aceno-coumarin, the INR of patients treated with hydroxy-coumarin is more stable, thus making it especially suitable for long-term anticoagulant treatment. The main indications of coumarin therapy include secondary prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism, and primary and secondary prevention of arterial thromboembolism, particularly embolic stoke, in patients with cardiovascular disorders. This review summarizes the most important clinical issues of long-term oral anticoagulant therapy including indications, contraindications, dosing, therapeutic range, and laboratory monitoring. Special emphasis is placed on the role of hydroxy-coumarin in longterm oral anticoagulant therapy.]
