Acute diarrhea, a significant burden to Thailand’s universal health care system: a nationwide database

popular for tourism. The current management for acute diarrhea in Thailand does not recommend identifying the pathogen causing acute diarrhea in all patients. We recommend preventing the chance of infection by hand washing, eating properly cooked food, and promoting good hygiene. The long-term consequences of infectious diarrhea include symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and have been reported by approximately 10% of patients with IBS [ 22 ], The disease outcomes of patients with acute diarrhea in the 3 different health care coverage programs in Thailand

Health awareness, motor performance and physical activity of female university students

Health awareness, motor performance and physical activity of female university students

Study aim: To assess body composition, health awareness and cardiorespiratory fitness in female university students differing in volume of obligatory physical activity classes.

Material and methods: 109 female students of the University of West Hungary volunteered to participate in the study. The subjects were divided into two groups according to frequency and volume of obligatory physical activity: students of recreation and health education programmes (RHE; n = 27) and of social pedagogy, tourism and catering, and teacher training programmes (STT; n = 82). Basic somatic characteristics were measured, body composition was assessed by bioelectrical impedance, cardiorespiratory fitness was evaluated using the Rockport Fitness Walking Test and health behaviour was assessed by questionnaire method. Student's t-test for independent samples, the U Mann Whitney test or chi-square test were used in data analysis.

Results: RHE students had higher values of percentage muscle mass (p<0.05) and of cardiorespiratory performance (p<0.001), they also declared significantly more frequently (p<0.001) practicing leisure physical activity as compared with the STT group. However, in both groups the symptoms of unhealthy behaviour were observed.

Conclusions: Although beneficial effects of augmented physical activity on body composition, cardiorespiratory performance and attitudes towards taking up leisure-time activity was noted, attention should be paid to symptoms of unhealthy behaviour observed in female students. This support the need for including obligatory physical education classes in university curriculum and the importance of education and promotion of healthy behaviour among the students.
