Juliet Walker: BMJ in the news

18 Mar, 09 | by julietwalker

Juliet WalkerA BMJ paper has been covered in Computer Weekly this week. The paper reported that a computerised test could be used to calculate whether patients are at risk of Type 2 diabetes and therefore allow doctors to intervene before they develop the disease. The test uses information from patient’s electronic health records and can also be used by the public online (http://www.qdscore.org/).

A row has blown up over a JAMA author’s undeclared competing interests. This omission was pointed out in a BMJ rapid response. The story can be followed on the Wall Street Journal’s health blog and on the Nature blog.

    Dear Juliet, it seem clear that “Mala Tempora Currunt” especially in Medicine, which unfortunately is a maid of Economics, if really we need a computer and a computerised test to calculate whether patients are at risk of Type 2 diabetes and therefore allow doctors to intervene before they develop the disease. Are there a few CLINICIANS alive on the earth? You know,to much information kills information. In fact, also in my former, 6-year-old paper, recomended for some time by NATURE.COM, published on NEJM and honoured by MEDLINE (http://blogs.nature.com/ Top cited papers Diet and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes (Medline)
    Paper Author: Sergio Stagnaro et al.,Diet and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes. N Engl J Med. 2002 Jan 24;346(4):297-298), I’ve illustrated the “clinical” diagnosis of INHERITED Real Risk of diabetes in individuals involved by Diabetic “and” Dislipidemic Constitutions, conditio sine qua non of diabetes! Perhaps, my no-sponsorized, CLINICAL, researches are short-lived and fascinating, as the transitory mimosa!
