Purpose The fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) gene is involved in energy homeostasis. The A allele of the rs9939609 (SNP; T>A) is associated with obesity and higher food intake, while its effect in energy expenditure remains unclear. The aim of this study is to examine whether FTO rs9939609 is associated with the anthropometric outcomes of a physical exercise program and a dietary intervention.

Purpose. The rs9939609 SNP (T > A) in FTO gene is associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes. The present study aimed at verifying whether this SNP influenced biochemical outcomes of children and adolescents who are overweight/obese submitted to a program of physical exercise and also if there was influence on basal levels of these biochemical variables. Methods. The sample was composed by 432 children and adolescents grouped in three ways (obese, overweight, and normal weight); of these, 135 c...

INTRODUCAO: A fibromialgia e uma sindrome caracterizada por dor muscular difusa, fadiga e pela presenca de pontos dolorosos especificos a pressao, alem de outros sintomas como o sono nao-reparador, ansiedade, depressao e rigidez matinal. OBJETIVO: Avaliar o perfil clinico de mulheres com SFM provenientes do ambulatorio de Reumatologia do Hospital de Clinicas (HC) de Curitiba – PR, destacando a presenca do sono nao-reparador e comorbidades associadas. METODOS: Estudo descritivo, transversal e do ...
INTRODUCAO: A hipertensao arterial sistemica e o excesso de peso sao problemas de saude publica que tem aumentado nos ultimos anos em decorrencia do estilo de vida inadequado e sao considerados como os principais determinantes no diagnostico de fatores de risco cardiovasculares. OBJETIVO: O objetivo deste estudo foi verificar a relacao dos niveis de pressao arterial e o perfil do indice de massa corporal (IMC) em escolares, de ambos os sexos, da rede publica de Curitiba (Parana, Brasil). METODOL...

Objective: To investigate the association of Arg16Gly and Gln27Glu polymorphisms of β2-adrenergic receptor gene (ADRB2) with the occurrence of asthma and overweight and the gene's influence on anthropometric, clinic, biochemical and physical fitness variables in children and adolescents. Methods: Subjects were evaluated for allelic frequencies of the β2-adrenergic receptor gene, height, weight, body mass index (BMI), BMI Z-score, waist circumference (WC), pubertal stage, resting heart rate (HRre...
In this study, we investigated the influence of two SNPs (rs846910 and rs12086634) of the HSD11B1 gene that encodes 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1(11β-HSD1), the enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of cortisol to cortisone, on variables associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome in 215 individuals of both sexes from southern Brazil. The HSD11B1 gene variants were genotyped using the TaqMan SNP genotyping assay. Glucose, triglycerides, total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol and LDL-chol...

Background Multidisciplinary intervention is an alternative for the treatment of children and adolescent obese. However, the influence of age and menarcheal status in the pattern of metabolic response of obese girls has not been investigated. The following study examined the effects of a 12-week multidisciplinary intervention on metabolic health in overweight girls and the contribution of age and menarcheal status on the resulting changes.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of 12 weeks of physical exercise (PE) on cardiovascular risk factors and BChE activity in obese adolescents. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The sample consisted of 24 obese adolescents and 51 normal weight controls. The following variables were measured in the initial stage and after 12 weeks: weight, height, BMI, waist circumference (WC), fat percentage (% F), maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) blood pressure, glucose (GLY) and insulin (I...
