1. Erickson, Megan. Association of nutrition education with the delay of the conversion of pre-diabetes to diabetes in hyperglycemic veterans.

Degree: 2015, Texas Woman's University

Diabetes is a multi-factorial, complex disease where lifestyle changes including diet and exercise can play a pivotal role in its prevention and management. This retrospective study determined the effectiveness of an outpatient nutrition education program in preventing/delaying the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. Hyperglycemic Veterans (n=372) were divided into a treatment group that received nutrition education (n=207) and a quasi-control group that did not receive nutrition education (n=165). Body weight, body mass index (BMI) and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) changes were analyzed using Cox Proportional Hazards and chi-square tests. Data indicated significantly fewer Veterans were diagnosed with diabetes in the treatment group compared to the control group (p < 0.0005). Covariates of age, HbA1c and BMI were positively associated with diabetes. A diagnosis of diabetes occurred 2-3 months later for Veterans receiving nutrition education. Nutrition education significantly delayed the conversion of pre-diabetes to a diagnosis of diabetes among Veterans. Advisors/Committee Members: Moore, Carolyn (advisor), Garcia, Jose (advisor), Juma, Shanil (advisor), Utech, Anne (advisor).

2. Utech, Anne. Role of common medications and nutritional supplements in non-small cell lung cancer patients.

Degree: PhD, Nutrition and Food Science, 2012, Texas Woman's University

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) can lead to a wasting syndrome called cancer cachexia. Cachexia has been defined as a body weight loss of ≥5% in six months or less, in the presence of underlying disease. Some common medications that have recently been identified as possible disruptors to this process include beta blockers (BB), angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE-I) and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARB). Oral nutritional supplements add macronutrients to a patient's diet, but their role has not been evaluated in the development or prevention of cancer cachexia. This retrospective, chart review study at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Houston, Texas hypothesized that exposure to ACE-I/ARB, BB, ACE-I/ARB + BB or nutritional supplements would improve the following outcomes in a sample of 440 male NSCLC patients: survival, weight and body composition change percentages (measured by weight and computed tomography images of fat and muscle at four locations over two time points), albumin changes from diagnosis to six months post-diagnosis, and development of cachexia. Patient exposure to drugs or nutritional supplements was designated if the patient took them for ≥6 months in the first year post-diagnosis. Nutritional supplements showed no relationships with any of the outcomes; however, a small number of subjects (n=23, 5% of subjects) were exposed. Results of the drug group exposures showed that ACE-I/ARB or both ACE-I/ARB + BB improved survival (p<0.0005, M=753 and 797 days respectively) over unexposed patients (M=468 days) or those exposed to BB alone (M=438 days), even when controlling for cancer stage ( p<0.0005). No other significant results were found when exposed patients were compared to unexposed patients. Therefore, the decreased mortality is not related to changes in body weight, body composition, development of cachexia or albumin. Other ACE-I/ARB mechanisms for increasing survival (such as slowing tumor progression or attenuating inflammation) should be investigated in the future.
