    Introduction: Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) has been thought as a disease of poor socioeconomic status. It is more prevalent in underdeveloped and developing countries than in developed countries. It is also common among the population with multiple social issues such as overcrowded dwellings, undernutrition, poor sanitation and suboptimal medical care. This study was done to review the socio demographic profiles of RHD patients in Hospital Queen Elizabeth (HQE) II, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
    Methods: A secondary data review of all patients registered under the RHD registry in HQE II for one- year starting from July 2013 to June 2014.
    Results: 204 RHD patients were included. Nearly three quarter (74.0%) were female. The mean age was 40.43 (14.75) years old. 61.1% has completed secondary
    education. 42.7% were housewives. The mean monthly income was RM 1363.83 (1297.05) which was categorized under the vulnerable income group. When they were categorized under the poverty level and the vulnerable income group, 42.6% and 76.5% of them fell under those categories respectively. The nearest health facilities to their houses were district hospitals (33.3%) with the mean distance of 9.17 km and health clinics (30.8%) with the mean distance of 4.27 km. Only 11.5% of them lived near the specialist hospitals with the mean distance of 21.32 km.
    Conclusions: Results from this review suggested that majority of RHD patients were in the low socioeconomic group with less access to health care facilities with specialist care. They are the most vulnerable groups and need to be prioritized in the specialized care program. .

    Introduction There is an increasing trend of obesity in children and adolescent globally.
    The objectives of this study were to identify the prevalence of overweight
    and obesity among students from secondary schools and to determine the
    mean random blood sugar (RBS) for the overweight and obese students.
    Methods This was a cross sectional study. Two secondary schools that were scheduled
    for visit by the School Health Team, Taiping in July 2016 were included. A
    standardized data collection sheet was used to collect the data. Overweight
    and obesity were defined based on WHO 2007 reference for BMI-for-age
    criteria. Random blood glucose was checked for overweight and obese
    students.
    Results A total of 184 school students consented and participated. 128 (69.6%) were
    female and 90 (48.9%) were Malays. The mean weight and height were 56.21
    kg and 1.61 m respectively with BMI of 21.49 kg/m2
    . Overall, the prevalence
    of obese and overweight were 12.5% and 10.9% respectively. Among the 4
    BMI groups, there were no significant difference found in sex (p=0.849) and
    races (p=0.536). However, there was significant difference (p=0.042) in
    mean RBS for obese and overweight students between races. RBS readings
    among overweight and obese students were within normal range with mean
    of 5.95 (0.67) mmol/l (range between 4.60 – 7.70 mmol/l).
    Conclusions The overall prevalence of overweight and obesity were comparable with
    other studies done in Malaysia. Nevertheless, there was no prevalence of
    Type II diabetes mellitus among them.

    Endometriosis is a complex disease primarily affecting women of reproductive age worldwide. The management goals are to improve the quality of life (QoL), alleviate the symptoms and prevent severe disease. This prospective cohort study was to assess the QoL in women with endometriosis that underwent primary surgery. A pre- and post-operative questionnaire via ED-5Q and general VAS score used for the evaluation for endometrial-like pain such as dysmenorrhoea and dyspareunia. A total of 280 patients underwent intervention; 224 laparoscopically and 56 via laparotomy mostly with stage II disease with ovarian endometriomas. Improvements in dysmenorrhoea pain scores from 5.7 to 4.15 and dyspareunia from 4.05 to 2.17 (p
