Abstract Short and long sleep duration have been associated with risk of obesity in children and adolescents. Evidence in adults is more mixed, with biological and psychosocial factors underlying these relationships mostly unknown. This review aimed at qualitatively and quantitatively summarizing previous studies on sleep duration as a predictor of obesity in adults in order to provide an update of the state of art in this field and clarify these relationships. Odds ratios at 95% Confidence Inte...

Abstract Background The association between folate insufficiency and congenital neural tube defects has been extensively investigated since 1990s. To reach an adequate intake of folic acid (FA), it is suggested to improve folate status through periconceptional supplementation with FA, promotion of the consumption of foods rich in natural folates, and the appropriate use of fortified foods. Aim The aim of the present study was to investigate the supplementation of folic acid in a sample of pregna...

The obesity paradox refers to extant evidence showing that obesity in older subjects or in patients with several chronic diseases may be protective and associated with decreased mortality. A number of mechanisms have been postulated to support the existance of obesity paradox; however, marked heterogeneity was found across studies and this has cast doubt on the actual presence of this phenomenon. The aim of the present narrative review is to summarize evidence underlying the concept of obesity p...

AIMS: Safety and tolerability of prolonged supplementation with a vitamin D, calcium and leucine-enriched whey protein medical nutrition drink (WP-MND) was evaluated in sarcopenic older adults. METHODS: A 13-week double-blinded, randomized, isocaloric placebo-controlled trial (PROVIDE study; n = 380) was extended with a voluntary 13-week open-label extension (OLE). OLE participants were randomized to receive daily 1 or 2 servings of WP-MND (21 g protein, 3 g leucine, 10 microg vitD and 500 mg ca...

Abstract Background Sarcopenic Obesity (SO) is characterised by the co-occurrence of high adiposity (HA) and low muscle mass (LM) and it has been associated with an increased risk for cardio-metabolic diseases. This cross-sectional study investigated the association between markers of insulin sensitivity and SO defined by three novel body composition models: 1) body composition phenotypes; 2) truncal fat mass/appendicular skeletal mass ratio (TrFM/ASM) load-capacity and 3) fat mass/fat free mass...

Summary Background Sarcopenic obesity is a clinical and functional condition characterized by the coexistence of excess fat mass and sarcopenia. Currently, different definitions of sarcopenic obesity exist and its diagnostic criteria and cut-offs are not universally established. Therefore, the prevalence and sensitivity of this condition for any disease risk prediction is affected significantly. Aim This work was conducted under the auspices of the European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Met...

Summary Background & aims The metabolic and functional characteristics related to sarcopenic obesity have not been thoroughly explored in the earlier stages of the aging process. The aim of the present study was to examine the phenotype of sarcopenic obesity, in terms of lean body mass, muscle strength and quality, in adult women with and without the Metabolic Syndrome (MetS), and its relationship with the features of myosteatosis. Methods Study participants were enrolled at the Sapienza Univers...
