INFLUENCE OF DIETARY FACTOR IN STUDENT PERFORMANCE

Introduction Nutrition during adolescence is of great importance in the quality of life and in school performance. In our society, eating habits are changing due to socio-cultural and family factors, new ideas about self-image and a global food culture. Data published in the National Health Survey (ENSANUT 2006), suggest that excess weight in adolescents between 12 and 19 years, has a national average of 31.9% in Mexico. One in 3 teens have excessive weight in our country. Several studies suggest that foods high in energy density and large portions of food, increase energy consumption and hence weight gain. Bottled soft drinks currently consumed, contribute to the epidemic of obesity and type II diabetes in Mexico. The intake of energy from these drink, represent 21% of the total energy consumption in Mexican adolescents. This, added to the energy from the diet, both contribute to these epidemics. Therefore, the adoption of patterns of consumption of healthy food and drinks for adolescents should be a priority for the population, since a well-balanced diet positively affects the physical and intellectual development of adolescents.

Osgood-Schlatter disease

This is a painful condition in which there is injury to the tibial tuberosity where it joins with the patellar tendon. It is commonly found in adolescents who participate in a lot of sporting activities during their growth spurt. The patellar tendon causes damage to the tibial tuberosity due to a combination of increased quadriceps muscle strength, immaturity of the bone and repeated strain. Inflammation and increased bone growth around the tuberosity sometimes creates a palpable bony nodule just below the patellar tendon that may be painful.

Treatment allocation in trials: cluster randomisation

Researchers investigated the effectiveness of neuromuscular training in reducing the rate of acute knee injuries in adolescent female football players. A cluster randomised controlled trial study design was used. The intervention was a 15 minute neuromuscular warm-up programme (targeting core stability, balance, and proper knee alignment) carried out twice a week throughout one season. A total of 230 football clubs were recruited from the female under 14 to under 18 series in eight regional districts of the Swedish Football Association, located in the middle and southern parts of Sweden. Clubs were randomised to the intervention or control using cluster allocation, stratified by regional district. In total, 121 clubs were allocated to the intervention group and 109 to the control group, and the clubs were followed for one season. The coaches of the clubs allocated to the control group were instructed to train and play as usual without any changes.1

Weight loss in an adolescent girl

A 15 year old girl who had been previously fit and well presented to the child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) team with weight loss, irregular menstrual periods, excessive exercise, restriction of energy intake during the day, and binging during the evening, followed by vomiting. Her symptoms had been present for a year, since her father had experienced a myocardial infarction. Clinically her symptoms were in keeping with anorexia nervosa, as shown by her completed eating disorder questionnaire.1 Her body mass index (BMI) was 16 and her weight for height was 85% of the median (50th centile) for age and sex. She had a distorted body image, believing her stomach and ankles were too fat, and she had an extreme fear of gaining weight.

E-cigarettes are “gateway devices” for smoking among young people, say researchers

Adolescents who use electronic cigarettes were more likely to smoke conventional cigarettes and less likely to quit smoking, a study from the United States has found, leading the researchers to conclude that the nicotine delivery devices are “unlikely to discourage conventional cigarette smoking among youths.”

An adolescent athlete with groin pain

A 14 year old boy felt a mild aching discomfort in his left groin while playing rugby but still continued to play. He subsequently tackled an opponent and developed a severe pain of sudden onset in the left upper thigh and groin. A “snapping” sound was heard and he fell to the ground. He was unable to bear weight on the left leg and appeared pale, clammy, and nauseated. His pitch-side vital observations were normal and he was offered combined gaseous nitrous oxide and oxygen for pain relief. Ice was applied to the area of maximum discomfort and he was accompanied to the emergency department in an ambulance. At the emergency department he was advised that he had probably “strained” a muscle and was given conservative advice. He was discharged with crutches and analgesia.
