Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag av avhandlingen:

In a community-based multicentre cross-sectional survey, we investigated physical health and use of healthcare services in Norwegian adults with intellectual disabilities. In a substudy we used the same physical capability tests as used in the Tromsø study. We found that the participants in their thirties in average performed similar on physical capability tests as participants in the general population aged 80 years. Despite many physical health conditions, most experienced their health as good. Risk of poor perceived health were higher for women, those with motor disabilities, more physical health conditions and with lack of physical activity.
Norwegian guidelines recommend annual health checks. The use of health checks was low (57%), more for adults with a more severe degree of intellectual disability. Cervical cancer screening was seldom performed. Perceived dental health was poor in 39% despite frequent use of dental care services.
Results from our study show a need for increased focus on physical and dental health in adults with intellectual disability. Physical capability tests should be part of annual health checks. The quality of dental care services needs improvement.
