Which Physicians Are the Most Overweight?

In the latest US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report on obesity, about 35% of the US population is obese, which is a body mass index (BMI) of ≥ 30.[1] Although far fewer physicians of the total number who responded to the Medscape survey are obese (8%), being overweight is still a problem for 34% of them. Radiologists ranked below the middle of the specialty weight scale, with 38% of them reporting being overweight to obese. General surgeons report being the most overweight physicians, with 49% confessing to being overweight to obese (BMI > 25). Family physicians follow closely at 48%. Dermatologists are the least heavy, with less than a quarter of them (23%) reporting a BMI > 25, followed by 29% of ophthalmologists. According to investigators of a recent study using data from the 2003-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, looking at BMI alone may miss many people at risk for cardiovascular disease. Some experts suggest using a BMI > 27-28 to indicate obesity, which correlates better with body-fat percentage vs the cut point of 30.[2]

Un poco sorprendente, ya que estamos sentados 95% del día leyendo estudios. A lo mejor ésta relacionado con que tenemos mejores horarios que nos permiten hacer ejercicio.

What Supplements Do Radiologists Take?


About 39% of radiologists who responded take a multivitamin, which is slightly more than the usage rate of 33% reported in a survey of the general US population.[20] Twenty-one percent of radiologists take omega-3 fatty acids, 27% take vitamin D, and 15% take a form of vitamin B. Despite a lack of evidence supporting the value of antioxidant supplements, 22% of radiologists who responded use them and 11% take coenzyme Q10, probably to prevent statin-related myalgia, according to verbal responses to the question on specific CAM therapies used. In the NHS/HPFS analysis[21] mentioned in the previous slide, usage for many supplements increased among health professionals between 1986 and 2006, particularly in women taking vitamin D (2.2% to 32.2%) and folic acid (0.8% to 10.7%). Use of fish oil increased significantly for both genders (1.6% to 18.1% for women and 3.3% to 22.2% for men). On the other hand, use of antioxidants vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E declined steadily.

Igual que yo, solo vitamina D. Estar encerrados en cuartos sin ventanas tiene sus desventajas.



Percentage of Radiologists Who Exercise at Least Twice a Week


In 2012 Gallup poll, 54.7% of Americans exercised 3 or more times a week,[28] while in a Gallup poll of physicians that same year, 58% of physicians claimed to exercise the same amount.[8] When looking at exercise frequency by weight group, radiologist respondents in the current Medscape survey who claimed normal weight did best, with 72% of them exercising at least twice a week. The heavier radiologists came closer to the Gallup poll results, with 53% of those who are overweight and only 42% of those who are obese saying they exercise at least 2 times a week.
