Implementation of nutrition clinic utilizing meal replacements in this low-income patient population was effective in achieving a significant reduction in weight over 6 months of treatment..
The potential lipotoxic effect of intramyocellular triglyceride (IMTG) accumulation has been suggested to be a major component in the development of insulin resistance. Increased levels of IMTGs correlate with insulin resistance in both obese and diabetic patients, but this relationship does not exist in endurance trained (ETr) subjects. This may b...
Regular participation in sports is associated with enhanced physical fitness and lower fat mass in prepubertal boys.
Regular participation in at least 3 h per week of sports activities and competitions on top of the compulsory physical education program is associated with increased physical fitness, lower whole body and trunkal fat mass in prepubertal boys.
Food selection and eating behaviour during weight maintenance intervention and 2-y follow-up in obese men.
In obese men, long-term maintenance of dietary changes was difficult. New ways to ease self-monitoring and increase self-efficacy might be necessary to improve maintenance of dietary changes.
Ectopic fat storage in heart, blood vessels and kidneys in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases.
In humans and most animal models, the development of obesity leads not only to increased fat depots in classical adipose tissue locations but also to significant lipid deposits within and around other tissues and organs, a phenomenon known as ectopic fat storage. The purpose of this review is to explore the possible locations of ectopic fat in key ...
Obesity is associated with increased storage of lipids in nonadipose tissues like skeletal muscle, liver, and pancreatic beta cells. These lipids constitute a continuous source of long-chain fatty acyl CoA (LC-CoA) and derived metabolites like diacylglycerol and ceramide, acting as signalling molecules on protein kinases activities (in particular, ...
Changes in intake of fruits and vegetables in relation to risk of obesity and weight gain among middle-aged women.
Our findings suggest that increasing intake of fruits and vegetables may reduce long-term risk of obesity and weight gain among middle-aged women.
Waist circumference is the best body size measurement in predicting diabetes in Aboriginal people.
Relationship between body mass index and different domains of disability in older persons: the 3C study.
These results are in favor of a strong association between obesity and the three domains of disability and incontinence. Weaker relationships between underweight and disability were observed. Results suggest that maintaining a BMI in the healthy range could contribute to independence in activities of daily living.
The impact of maternal obesity on midtrimester sonographic visualization of fetal cardiac and craniospinal structures.
Maternal obesity increases the rate of SUV for the fetal cardiac structures by 49.8% and for the craniospinal structures by 31%. The optimal gestational age for visualization of fetal cardiac and craniospinal anatomy in obese patients may be after 18-20 weeks.
