TL;DR: In this paper, a new method has emerged for establishing the discriminant validity assessment through heterotrait-monotrait (HTMT) ratio of correlations method, which can detect the possible indiscriminant among the latent variables.
Abstract: Assessment of discriminant validity is a must in any research that involves latent variables for the prevention of multicollinearity issues Fornell and Larcker criterion is the most widely used method for this purpose However, a new method has emerged for establishing the discriminant validity assessment through heterotrait-monotrait (HTMT) ratio of correlations method Therefore, this article presents the results of discriminant validity assessment using these methods Data from previous study was used that involved 429 respondents for empirical validation of value-based excellence model in higher education institutions (HEI) in Malaysia From the analysis, the convergent, divergent and discriminant validity were established and admissible using Fornell and Larcker criterion However, the discriminant validity is an issue when employing the HTMT criterion This shows that the latent variables under study faced the issue of multicollinearity and should be looked into for further details This also implied that the HTMT criterion is a stringent measure that could detect the possible indiscriminant among the latent variables In conclusion, the instrument which consisted of six latent variables was still lacking in terms of discriminant validity and should be explored further
TL;DR: The paper concludes by emphasizing sleep quality assessments as an important early risk indicator, thereby reducing the incidence of a wide spectrum of morbidities.
TL;DR: In this article, the impact of using fins and nano-sized materials on performance of discharging system was investigated, and the mathematical model has been offered in the form of PDE's, which were solved using Galerkin FEM.
TL;DR: Various studies are examined to explore relationship of type 2 diabetes mellitus with different dietary habits/patterns and practices and its complications and to encourage patients to understand the importance of diet which may help in disease management, appropriate self-care and better quality of life.
Abstract: Globally, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is considered as one of the most common diseases. The etiology of T2DM is complex and is associated with irreversible risk factors such as age, genetic, race, and ethnicity and reversible factors such as diet, physical activity and smoking. The objectives of this review are to examine various studies to explore relationship of T2DM with different dietary habits/patterns and practices and its complications. Dietary habits and sedentary lifestyle are the major factors for rapidly rising incidence of DM among developing countries. In type 2 diabetics, recently, elevated HbA1c level has also been considered as one of the leading risk factors for developing microvascular and macrovascular complications. Improvement in the elevated HbA1c level can be achieved through diet management; thus, the patients could be prevented from developing the diabetes complications. Awareness about diabetes complications and consequent improvement in dietary knowledge, attitude, and practices lead to better control of the disease. The stakeholders (health-care providers, health facilities, agencies involved in diabetes care, etc.) should encourage patients to understand the importance of diet which may help in disease management, appropriate self-care and better quality of life.
