MSQThe Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) is designed to measure an employee's satisfaction with his or her job. Three forms are available: two long forms (1977 version and 1967 version) and a short form.
QOLSThe Quality Of Life Scale is a valid instrument for measuring quality of life across patient groups and cultures and is conceptually distinct from health status or other causal indicators of quality of life.
TFEQThe "Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire" (TFEQ) contains 51 items and measures three dimensions of human eating behavior: cognitive restraint of eating (Factor I - 21 items), disinhibition (Factor II - 16 items), hunger’ (Factor III - 14 items).
BESThe Binge Eating Scale is a sixteen item questionnaire used to assess the presence of binge eating behavior indicative of an eating disorder. The questions are based upon both behavioral characteristics (e.g., amount of food consumed) and the emotional, cognitive response, guilt or shame.
HADHospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS). The HAD scale is an instrument that can detect anxiety and depressive disorders. It contains 14 items rated from 0 to 3. Seven questions relate to anxiety (total A) and seven to the depressive dimension (D total), thus obtaining two scores (maximum score of each score = 21).
RPAQThe Recent Physical Activity Questionnaire (RPAQ), assess usual physical activity (PA) in 4 domains (work, travel, recreation, and domestic life).
Substrate turnoverTurnover number (also termed k<sub>cat</sub>) is defined as the maximum number of molecules of substrate that an enzyme can convert to product per catalytic site per unit of time (a turnover rate).
Stable Isotope TracersStable isotope tracers provide a safe and powerful tool to investigate carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism, especially to asses substrate fluxes in vivo in humans. Isotopes are elements which share the same place in the periodic table. As such, they have the same number of protons, but differ in their atomic mass, which enables us to trace them by mass spectrometry.
YAQ The Youth Adolescent Questionnaire (YAQ) is a widely used 152-item food frequency questionnaire (FFQ). It is a unidimensional assessment of the previous year's diet in 9 to 18-y-olds and requires about 30 min to complete. A typical item asks the respondents to report the frequency with which they consumed a particular food (eg, yogurt, potato chips, and noodles) over the previous year. Response categories differ by type of food; more popular items (eg, apple juice) have response categories represented by days, weeks, and months, whereas less popular foods (eg, raisins) have weekly or monthly options.
BOD PODBOD POD: A method to evaluate body composition. The BOD POD is a computerized, egg-shaped chamber. Using the same whole-body measurement principle as underwater weighing, the BOD POD measures a subject's mass and volume by air displacement plethysmography, from which their whole-body density is determined. Using these data, body fat and lean muscle mass can then be calculated.
PG-SGA The patient-generated-subjective global assessment (PG-SGA) was adapted from the SGA and developed specifically for patients with cancer. A part is completed by the patient, and the physical examination is done by a health professionnal.
Clock drawing testThe clock-drawing test is a cognitive screening instrument
Faecal analysisFeacal analysis can be done with stool samples to monitor lipid and microbiota composition. Changes in human gut microbiota are associated with a variety of diseases and diet modifies gut microbiota. Profiling of the fecal microbiota can be done by Genome sequencing and ribosomal RNA survey. Microbiota-diet interactions produce metabolites, which can be analysed.
Dietary recall | 24 hour dietary recallThe 24-hour dietary recall is an interview held in person or over the telephone where a participant is asked to report all the foods eaten in the previous 24 hour period.
DEXADual-Energy X-ray absorption (DEXA) is used to measure body fat, lean tissue and bone mineral content
Hospital nutrition benchmarkingHospital nutrition benchmarking: nutritionDay questionnaires for units and patients. This has been regularly utilised for 10 years and offers speciality related benchmarking of the nutrition risk profile and interventions in specific wards.
IWQOLImpact of Weight on Quality Of Life lite questionnaire is a validated, 31-item, self-report measure of obesity-specific quality of life. In addition to a total score, there are scores on five domains: Physical function, Self-esteem, Sexual life, Public distress, Work.
MRIMagnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to investigate the anatomy and physiology of the body. MRI scanners use magnetic fields and radio waves to form images of the body. Body Composition is also estimated using cross-sectional imaging methods like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Nutrient biodisponibilityThe proportion of a nutrient that is absorbed from the diet and used for normal body functions.the bioavailability of a nutrient is governed by external and internal factors. External factors include the food matrix and the chemical form of the nutrient in question, whereas gender, age, nutrient status and life stage (e.g. pregnancy) are among the internal factors. Because aspects such as nutrient status also determine whether and how much of a nutrient is actually used, stored or excreted, some definitions of bioavailability restrict themselves to the fraction of a nutrient that is absorbed.
SFQ The Sexual Function Questionnaire (SFQ) is a self-report outcome measure sexual function. It has recently been modified to create a 28-item version (SFQ28) including the addition of a new arousal-cognitive domain.
SkinfoldsThe skinfold measurement test is used to determine a person's body composition and body fat percentage. This test estimates the percentage of body fat by measuring skinfold thickness at specific locations on the body.
DSM VDiagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition is the standard classification of mental disorders used by mental health professionals in the United States. The DSM consists of three major components: the diagnostic classification, the diagnostic criteria sets, and the descriptive text.
