Abstract

People with serious mental illness have consistently higher levels of mortality and morbidity than the general population. They have greater levels of cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, diabetes, and respiratory illness. Although genetics may have a role in the physical health problems of these people, lifestyle and environmental factors such as smoking, obesity, poor diet, and low levels of physical activity play a prominent part. To review the effects of dietary advice for schizophrenia and schizophrenia-like psychosis. We searched the Cochrane Schizophrenia Group's Trials Register (September 09, 2013 and February 24, 2016). We planned to include all randomised clinical trials focusing on dietary advice versus standard care. The review authors (RP, KTP) independently screened search results but did not identify any studies that fulfilled the review's criteria. We did not identify any studies that met our inclusion criteria. Dietary advice has been shown to improve the dietary intake of the general population. Research is needed to determine whether dietary advice can have a similar benefit in people with serious mental illness.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 29 May 2019.
All research outputs
#3,837,701
of 15,140,498 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#6,378
of 11,116 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#71,130
of 266,340 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#123
of 192 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,140,498 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 74th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,116 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 22.8. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 266,340 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 192 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
