【Abstract】 Background Nowadays,the society is faced with problems such as aging population and high incidence of chronic diseases.The implementation of general practitioner(GP) system is an important way to guarantee and maintain residents' health.A sufficient number of GPs is a necessary condition for residents to obtain the services from GPs.The GP system has made great progress in recent years,but the distribution of GPs is different in areas with different economic development levels.It is an important part of achieving universal health to understand the situation of GPs in areas with different economic development levels and guide the reasonable allocation of GPs in each area.Objective To analyze the distribution of GPs and its change trends in regions with different economic development levels in China.Methods Using the data of the National data website of the People's Republic of China from 2013 to 2018,31 provinces(autonomous regions and municipalities) in China were divided into five different economic level groups according to the per capita GDP.Combined with the number of GPs in different regions in China Health and Family Planning Statistical Yearbook 2013—2017 and China Health and Wellbeing Statistical Yearbook 2018,a descriptive analysis was made on the distribution of the GPs in each group.The concentration index was used to analyze the trend of fairness changes,and the overall difference in distribution was configured through the Theil index.Results From 2012 to 2017,the number of GPs in China increased from 0.109 8 million to 0.252 7 million with an increase of 130.15%.The number of GPs per 10 000 population in the highest economic level group was significantly larger than the other economic level groups,reaching 3.61 per 10 000 population in 2017.During the same period,the GP concentration index declined first and then rose,reaching the lowest level in 2015(0.192 1).According to the decomposition of Theil index contribution rate,the annual difference rate between different economic level groups contributed more than 70%.Conclusion The number of GPs in China has increased significantly.The number of GPs and the proportion of GPs registering in general practice as specialty are both relatively great in areas with high economic development level.The distribution fairness of GPs is poor in regions with different economic development levels,and the difference between groups with different economic levels is the main source of the unfair distribution of GPs.

【Abstract】 The county-level medical alliance has received increasing attention from the government departments in recent years.However,due to the inadequate supervision system,the low enthusiasm of participants,and the unreasonable interest distribution mechanism,the implementation process of the medical alliance has been hindered.It is of great significance to analyze the stakeholders and their conflicts of interest to further promote the construction of county-level medical alliance.Using the theory of stakeholders and game theory,this research constructed two models of central government-local government model and local government-county-level medical institutions-patients model to study the relationship between the central government and local government,and game relationship between local government,county-level medical institutions and patients.It was found that the central government's supervision and management of local government,the costs paid by local government and county-level medical institutions,the rewards and penalties for county-level medical institutions,and the costs paid by patients and the benefits they received would affect the construction of county-level medical alliance.Therefore,government departments should improve the evaluation and incentive mechanism and act as the leader in coordinating the interests of all parties.The propaganda of the medical alliance policy should be strengthened to make relevant groups take the initiative to become participants.The county-level medical institutions should help each other and jointly improve patient satisfaction with medical treatment.

【Abstract】 Background Disease spectrum changes as time goes on.Chronic kidney disease(CKD) has become a global public health problem threatening people's health,causing a substantially great burden.The traditional disease-centered model is no longer applicable,the new appropriate chronic disease management model highlights the central role of the patient in disease prevention and treatment.Hence,how to increase patient self-management initiative,namely,patient activation,has become a research hotspot of CKD follow-up management.Objective To explore the correlation of activation with psychological distress and social support in CKD patients with outpatient follow-up management,providing evidence for improving patient activation.Methods A single-center,cross-sectional design with convenience sampling was adopted in the research carried out between August 2017 and October 2018.Participants were totally 301 non-dialysis patients with CKD stages 1-5 who received regular outpatient follow-up from the Clinic of Kidney Disease Center,Nanfang Hospital.They were investigated with Patient Activation Measure(PAM),Kessler Psychological Distress Scale(KPDS) and Social Support Scale.Results The rates with activation levels of 1-4 were 12.3%(37/301),18.3%(55/301),36.5%(110/301),and 32.9%(99/301),respectively,with corresponding mean evaluation score of 45.1(43.2,46.1),51.1(51.1,52.6),61.1(59.4,64.1),and 73.1(68.1,77.0),respectively.The PAM score was negatively correlated with KPDS score(rs=-0.301,P<0.01),but was positively correlated with the total score of social support,scores of objective support,subjective support and utilization of support(rs=0.195-0.359,P<0.01).Conclusion The activation for most CKD patients is not high,indicating that they have no sufficient self-management knowledge and confidence,and skills for health maintenance and promotion.In addition,CKD patients' activation increases with the growth of social support,but decreases with the aggravation of psychological distress.So the activation of such patients during the outpatient follow-up management may be enhanced by psychological rehabilitation interventions and increased social support.

【Abstract】 Background Total cholesterol(TC) at baseline is an influencing factor of the incidence of stroke,while no studies have been conducted on the effect of longitudinal trajectories of TC on the incidence of stroke at home and abroad.Objective To explore the effect of longitudinal trajectories of TC on the incidence of stroke.Methods A prospective cohort study was conducted based on KaiLuan research cohort.Cox regression model was used to analyze the effect of single TC measurement on the incidence of stroke among baseline subjects(n=95 943) with complete TC data and no previous history of stroke in 2006.According to TC levels,patients were divided into normal level group(TC≤5.2 mmol/L,n=59 065),marginal increase group(5.2 mmol/L<TC≤6.2 mmol/L,n=26 330),and hypercholesterolemia group(TC>6.2 mmol/L,n=10 548).The patients
(n=51 394) with complete TC data in 2008 and 2010 and no previous history of stroke before 2010 were taken as the observation population for repeated measurement.The follow-up period was(6.77±1.00)years,and the incidence of stroke was collected annually during the follow-up period.According to the longitudinal trajectories of TC,three different groups were determined:
22 116(43.03%) patients in the low-stable group,24 441(47.56%) patients in the medium-stable group,and 4 837(9.41%) patients in the high-stable group.The Cox regression model was used to analyze the influence of longitudinal trajectories of TC on the incidence of stroke.Results In the baseline observation group,Cox regression analysis showed that compared with the ideal level group,the HR values(95%CI) of stroke,ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke in the hypercholesterolemia group were 1.13(1.03,1.23),1.21(1.11,1.33),and 0.80(0.65,0.99),respectively,after adjusting for gender and other influencing factors.During the follow-up period,the cumulative incidence of stroke and ischemic stroke increased with the increase of TC longitudinal trajectories(P<0.05).Cox regression analysis showed after adjusting for gender and other influencing factors,the HR values(95%CI) of stroke in each group were 1.21(1.08,1.35) and 1.32(1.11,1.57),and of ischemic stroke were 1.25(1.09,1.43) and 1.34(1.05,1.72) when compared with that in the low-stable group.The HR values of hemorrhagic stroke were not statistically significant(P>0.05).In addition,after adjusting for baseline TC levels in 2010,the HR values(95%CI) of stroke in each group were 1.21(1.07,1.37) and 1.33(1.05,1.67),and of ischemic stroke were 1.25(1.13,1.44) and 1.34(1.20,1.72) when compared with that in the low-stable group.The HR values of hemorrhagic stroke were not statistically significant(P>0.05).The baseline TC levels in 2010 had no statistical significance on stroke and ischemic stroke(P>0.05).Conclusion A single increase in TC levels is the risk factor of the incidence of stroke and ischemic stroke,while it is a protective factor of the incidence of hemorrhagic stroke.The increased longitudinal trajectory of TC levels is a risk factor of the incidence of stroke and ischemic stroke,while it has no statistical correlation with the risk of the incidence of hemorrhagic stroke.

【Abstract】 Background One in twelve deaths in adults can be attributed to diabetes.Diabetic patients have significantly increased blood lipid and inflammatory markers.Moreover,hyperlipidemia,hyperglycemia and elevated inflammatory markers often increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.Objective To investigate the effect of exenatide combined with insulin on fibrinogen(FIB),high-sensitivity C-reactive protein(hs-CRP),interleukin-6(IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor alpha(TNF-α) in patients with type 2 diabetes with poor glycemic control.Methods A total of 193 outpatients and inpatients with T2DM were recruited from Department of Endocrinology,Affiliated Hospital of Xuzhou Medical University from June 2016 to June 2018,and were randomized into exenatide group(n=98) and insulin group(n=95).All patients continued their previous diet,exercise,and oral medication.Besides,the exenatide group additionally took exenatide,and the insulin dose was temporarily reduced by 30%,then was adjusted according to blood glucose later.The insulin group only adjusted the insulin dose based on the blood glucose level.After 6 months of treatment,hypoglycemic effects and changes of FIB,hs-CRP,IL-6 and TNF-α were compared between the two groups.Multiple stepwise linear regression analysis was used to analyze the influencing factors of inflammatory markers.Results FPG,2 hPG,HOMA-IR,HbA1c,TG,TC,LDL-C,hs-CRP,IL-6 and TNF-α were all decreased in both groups after treatment(P<0.05),whereas HOMA-IR,hs-CRP,IL-6 and TNF-α in exenatide group were significantly lower than those in the insulin group(P<0.05).In the exenatide group,mean body weight,body mass index(BMI),waist circumference(WC) and daily insulin dosage were also decreased as compared with baseline(P<0.05),but the difference of FIB was not significant compared with the pre-treatment(P>0.05).In the insulin group,mean body weight,BMI,WC and daily insulin dosage were increased as compared with baseline(P<0.05),but the difference of FIB was not significant(P>0.05).The difference of pre- and post-treatment ΔFIB was positively correlated with ΔWC,Δbody weight,ΔBMI,and ΔHOMA-IR(r=0.269-0.423,P<0.05).Δhs-CRP was positively correlated with ΔWC and ΔHOMA-IR(r=0.223-0.515,P<0.05).ΔIL-6 and ΔTNF-α were positively correlated with ΔWC(r=0.215-0.379,P<0.05).Multiple stepwise linear regression analysis showed that ΔBMI and ΔHOMA-IR were the influencing factors of ΔFIB,and ΔWC was the influencing factor of Δhs-CRP,ΔIL-6 and ΔTNF-α(P<0.05).Conclusion Exenatide with insulin treatment may achieve similar hypoglycemic effect as high-dose insulin,but is superior to the latter in reducing body weight,BMI,WC,insulin dosage,insulin resistance,as well as subclinical inflammation markers.

【Abstract】 Background There is a two-way relationship between periodontal disease and diabetes.Although periodontal disease is a common complication of diabetes,it has not received much attention from patients and doctors.Objective To investigate the periodontal status of patients with type 2 diabetes receiving contracted family doctor services in the Yuetan Community and analyze its influencing factors,in order to provide a theoretical basis for general practitioners to conduct oral health education for patients with type 2 diabetes.Methods From March 1 to June 1 in 2018,200 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus receiving contracted family doctor services in Yuetan Community Health Service Center and its subordinate stations were recruited by convenient sampling method for periodontal clinical examination and questionnaire survey.The survey included basic information,living habits,control situation of type 2 diabetes,and oral health care.Periodontal examination was performed using the community periodontal index(CPI) as a standard.Rank-sum test was used to analyze the highest and mean scores of CPI.Binary Logistic regression was used to analyze the influencing factors of excluded sextants.Results There were 169 cases without excluded sextants,and the cases with highest CPI scores of 0,1,2,3,and 4 accounted for 3.5%,14.5%,46.5%,10.0%,and 10.0%,respectively.Univariate analysis of the highest and mean CPI scores of 169 patients showed that the highest CPI score of patients with duration of diabetes > 9 years was significantly higher than that of patients with duration of diabetes
≤9 years;the mean CPI score of patients never having the teeth cleaning was significantly higher than that of patients having the teeth cleaning every half a year to a year;the highest and mean CPI scores of patients who did not pay attention to oral health knowledge were both significantly higher than that of patients paying attention to oral health knowledge;the highest CPI score of patients who were not informed by the doctor about the relationship of diabetes and periodontal disease was significantly higher than that of patients who were informed;the highest CPI score of patients having bleeding gums during brushing was significantly higher than that of patients without gum bleeding(P<0.05).There were 31 cases with excluded sextants and cases with 1,2,3,and 4 excluded sextants accounted for 5.5%,4.5%,3.0%,and 2.5%,respectively.The influencing factors of the presence of excluded sextants in patients with type 2 diabetes were age ≥ 65 years old〔OR=2.266,95%CI(1.011,5.079)〕,and duration of type 2 diabetes > 9 years〔OR=2.490,95%CI(1.056,5.889)〕(P<0.05).Conclusion Patients with type 2 diabetes who received contracted family doctor services in Yuetan Community have a poor periodontal condition,which is related to many factors.As a result,general practitioners need to pay more attention to patients' periodontal status and strengthen their oral health education.
