  • Decreased access to bariatric care: an analysis of referral practices to bariatric specialists. [Journal Article]
  • SOSurg Obes Relat Dis 2016; 12(9):1725-1730
  • Primomo JA, Kajese T, … Morrison C
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most primary care and subspecialists do not discuss bariatric surgical options, resulting in decreased access to bariatric care. The main barrier to referral is noncommunication by the primary care physician or subspecialist, despite the vast majority of physicians having positive attitudes about bariatric surgery. Co-morbidities of diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea are more likely to prompt a referral. Primary care physicians are most likely to refer, while endocrinologists are least likely. Improved familiarity with nationally recognized obesity management algorithms could contribute to improved referral rates.
  • Rationale and Design of a Genetic Study on Cardiometabolic Risk Factors: Protocol for the Tehran Cardiometabolic Genetic Study (TCGS). [Journal Article]
  • JRJMIR Res Protoc 2017 Feb 23; 6(2):e28
  • Daneshpour MS, Fallah MS, … Azizi F
  • CONCLUSIONS: Investigations conducted within the TCGS will seek to identify relevant patterns of genetic polymorphisms that could be related to cardiometabolic risk factors in participants from Tehran. By linking genome-wide data to the existing databank of TLGS participants, which includes comprehensive behavioral, biochemical, and clinical data on each participant since cohort inception in 1999, the TCGS will also allow exploration of gene-gene and gene-environment interactions as they relate to disease status.
