Colorectal cancer and potential predictors of never screened for faecal occult blood test: a narrative review.

J Public Health Res 2021 Aug 4. Epub 2021 Aug 4.

Faculty of Medicine, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major public health threat. Therefore, CRC screening uptake has been a focus with the established precancerous lesion and the strong association of early detection with staging and survival of the disease. However, CRC screening is relatively low in many countries. This article briefly discussed the current situation of CRC, recommendations, and current uptake of CRC screening in various countries. Besides that, this article also highlights the potential factors that help to predict the CRC screening uptake worldwide. Identification of those factors could guide policymakers to develop an effective strategy to improve the CRC screening uptake and ultimately improve the health outcome of the population.

Successful pregnancy in morbidly obese lady with polycystic ovary syndrome after bariatric surgery: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 Aug 24;85:106235. Epub 2021 Jul 24.

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine and Science Health, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia. Electronic address:

Introduction: Obesity has been proven to have adverse effects on fertility and is one of the predisposing factors for delay in pregnancy even with the use of assisted reproductive technique. There are many pathways in which obesity can affect fertility such as anovulation, poor implantation and low-quality oocyte.

Case Presentation: We report a case of a 40-year-old lady with primary infertility for six years with underlying polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and BMI 45.7 whom was successfully conceived twice following bariatric surgery procedure in which reduction of 70% of her BMI prior to bariatric surgery lead to her spontaneous conception without fertility intervention and successful live birth.

Clinical Discussion: Obese PCOS needs multidisciplinary approaches which include weight loss program such as dietary advice, exercise intervention as part of preliminary treatment prior to ovulation induction and counselling.

Conclusion: Bariatric surgery has been a mainstay treatment in patients with morbid obesity and those with BMI more than 35 associated with obesity related problems such as joint pain, hypertension or diabetes mellitus. Bariatric surgery such as laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy should be considered more often in contrast to lifestyle modification for morbidly obese lady with PCOS and infertility prior to the use of standard ovulation induction regime for treating infertility.

Prevalence and risk factors associated with alcohol consumption among indigenous people in Sabah Borneo Island.

Aust J Rural Health 2021 Jun 20;29(3):464-472. Epub 2021 Jun 20.

Faculty of Medicine, MAHSA University College, Jalan Universiti, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Objectives: In this study, we aimed to determine the prevalence and risk factors of alcohol use among a cohort of population in Sabah.

Design: This is a prospective, cohort study involving rural community residents.

Setting: Rural community resident at Bingkor, Keningau, Sabah.

Participants: 363 individuals aged 13 years old and above.

Intervention: Community-based participatory research to determine the prevalence and risk factors associated with alcohol use.

Main Outcome Measures: Measurement of alcohol use using Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) and assessment of psychiatric morbidity using Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI) questionnaires.

Results: Most alcohol drinkers aged between 36-45 years old, followed by 26-35 years old and 46-55 years old. Interestingly, there are almost similar female to male ratio. Most were Kadazan-Dusun ethnic, non-Muslims, and married. Although only less than a third of the participants received tertiary education, the majority were working. Based on the findings, being a male, non-Muslim and having an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) (current) posed a significantly higher risk of alcohol consumption.

Conclusion: A worryingly high prevalence of hazardous alcohol consumption among the locals is reported. There is a need for population-wide intervention towards preventive measures based on the identified risk factors for hazardous alcohol use.

Prevalence and risk factors of prehypertension in university students in Sabah, Borneo Island of East Malaysia.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 May;99(21):e20287

Department of Biomedical Science and Therapeutics, Faculty of Medicine and Health Science, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

Unhealthy lifestyle contributes mainly to an increased prevalence of non-communicable diseases including hypertension and cardiovascular diseases tend to increase in Malaysia. These diseases lead to an increased risk of end organ damage and cardiovascular complications. In this study, the prevalence of prehypertension and its associated risk factors among a cohort of university students in Sabah was determined.This is a prospective, cross-sectional study conducted among 365 undergraduate students irrespective of faculties at Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS). Standardized and validated World Health Organization (WHO) STEPS questionnaires were used to collect sociodemographic data. Additionally, clinical and anthropometric data were measured and recorded by a trained staff, followed by descriptive and logistic regression analyses.A total of 365 UMS undergraduate students aged 18 years and above participated in the study. The prevalence of prehypertension among university students was high (31%) (95% CI [29.1%, 34.3%]). Well-known risk factors for hypertension including family history of hypertension, reduced sleep duration, reduced physical activity, smoking, being overweight or obese were significantly associated with the risk of developing prehypertension (Pā€Š<ā€Š.05) among UMS students. However, no association was observed between ethnicity, age, and gender with prehypertension.A worryingly high percentage of UMS students are prehypertensive, indicating the need of early preventive strategies aimed at increasing awareness, early screening, and lifestyle modification to reduce the rising burden of the disease and the associated complications in this age group.

Private troubles to public issue: empowering communities to reduce alcohol-related harm in Sabah, Malaysia.

Health Promot Int 2017 02;32(1):122-129

Sabah Health Department, NCD Unit Public Health Division, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

Summary: Alcohol is the number three contributor to the burden of disease worldwide so must remain a priority health promotion issue internationally. Malaysia is a Muslim country and alcohol-related harm was not seen as a priority until recently, because it only affects a minority of the population. Sabah has more than 30 different ethnic groups, and alcohol has a traditional role in the cultural practices of many of these groups. In 2009, the Intervention Group for Alcohol Misuse (IGAM) was formed, under the umbrella of Mercy Malaysia by a group of healthcare workers, academics, members of the Clergy and people who were previously alcohol-dependent concerned about the harmful effects of excessive alcohol consumption. IGAM in collaboration with other bodies have organized public seminars, visited villages and schools, encouraged the formation of a support group and trained healthcare professionals in health promotion intervention. The focus later changed to empowering communities to find solutions to alcohol-related harm in their community in a way which is sensitive to their culture. A standard tool-kit was developed using WHO materials as a guide. Village committees were formed and adapted the toolkit according to their needs. This strategy has been shown to be effective, in that 90% of the 20 committees formed are actively and successfully involved in health promotion to reduce alcohol-related harm in their communities.
