What is the food security status, self-rated health, and diet of students using a university-based food bank?Download
Background: Food insecurity is the limited or uncertain ability to obtain the quantity and/or quality of food that an individual or household needs. The topic of household food insecurity has been investigated in myriad vulnerable groups, including low-income families, women, black and Hispanic...
Weeds promote greater arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi benefit in organically managed spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivation systemDownload
Weeds appear to enhance soil microbial benefit in organic agricultuer. We examined effects of weed and microbial effects on spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield and quality under organic management systems. Canadian spring wheat cultivars were planted in weed-free and weedy treatments in...
Spring triticale is being evaluated as a platform crop for bio-industrial products on the Canadian prairies and may require genetic modification (GM). Seed lost at harvest may persist and result in volunteer GM triticale populations in following crops that could impact co-existence with...
Background: Diabetes and chronic kidney disease are two leading public health concerns. Patients with both diabetes and chronic kidney disease may be at elevated risk for suboptimal nutrient status due to diet restrictions, electrolyte and fluid imbalance, and altered metabolism. Objectives: The...
Vitamin D Supplementation and Bone Health in Adults with Diabetic Nephropathy: Preliminary Findings from a Randomized Controlled TrialDownload
Vitamin D (vitD) is a nutrient of concern in Canada particularly for those with diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Participants (18-80y) with diabetes and CKD were randomized to receive either 50mcg/day (n=33) or 1,000mcg/month (n=30) vitD3 for 6-months. Variables studied included:...
Vitamin D insufficiency is highly prevalent in children (up to 40%), particularly in northern climates such as Alberta, due to reduced sunlight exposure and low intake. Although suboptimal vitamin D status and metabolic dysregulation are commonly observed in obesity, little is known about the...
Vitamin D Status and Health-care Outcomes in an Ambulatory Population of Patients with Diabetes and Chronic Kidney disease: A Five-year Follow-up.Download
Vitamin D (VitD) deficiency is a prevalent condition in Canada, especially in northern latitudes where sunlight exposure is limited. Elderly patients especially those with chronic conditions such as Diabetes Mellitus (DM) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) have a higher risk of developing vitD...
