Epidemiological studies analyse the patterns, causes and effects of health and dis-ease conditions in defined populations, specifically the UAE population.

Projects include:

Vitamin D deficiency study

• Data collected and assessed to determine the possible causes of high incidence of vitamin D deficiency in the UAE

• As per the findings, 63% of Emirati men and 68% of Emirati women showed to be deficient or severely deficient in Vitamin D

• Study started April 2016 with 48,916 individuals from Imperial College London Diabetes Centre database

Abu Dhabi sleep apnea study

• Questionnaire-based study in the patient population of the Centre, to establish the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea among Emiratis

• Data study from March - July 2015 with 700 participants

• High or intermediate risk of sleep apnea was found in more than half of the population studied

Correlation between depression and HbA1c levels in the UAE population

• Study from May 2012 - May 2013

• A questionnaire-based study investigating the correlation between diabetes control, its complications and depression

• 678 patients with diabetes, pre-diabetes and normal glucose tolerance were recruited

• It was found that: there was a higher prevalence of depression among patients with poorer glycemic control

• A higher risk of depression in Emirati men, moderate depression associated with the presence of coronary artery disease

The musculoskeletal component in patients with chest pain

• Examine the prevalence and characteristics of musculoskeletal tender spots among patients with chest pain

• Study from December 2012 - December 2013 with 200 patients recruited

• <1% had no tender spots of the chest musculature or of the thorax skeleton, which made it impossible to distinguish between patients with or without coronary artery disease
