Issue 3 of vol. 18 of the Malaysian Journal of Medical Sciences has been updated on the Bioline website. This issue includes The Relationship between Media Use and Body Mass Index among Secondary Students in Kuching South City, Sarawak, Malaysia, a study done on the relationship between BMI of secondary school students in Kuching South City, Sarawak, Malaysia, and consumption of media. Data was collected from 316 students between the ages of 13 and 17 through both a questionnaire and anthropometric measurement. The results show that boys were found to spend more time using media than girls, and overall media did not affect the body weight of the students.

Vol. 18 has also been updated with no. 4. This issue includes an article called Effects of Duration of Diabetes on Behavioural and Cognitive Parameters in Streptozotocin-Induced Juvenile Diabetic Rats, a study in which infant rats were induced with diabetes. This resulted in severe cognitive dysfunction in the rats. The results of the study showed that if Type-1 diabetes is treated as early as possible, potential cognitive dysfunction side effects can be reduced.
