Animal studies indicate Salacia reduces body weight, possibly due to its α-glucosidase inhibitor (α-GI) properties, but this has not been examined previously. In this study, a randomized, placebo-controlled, three-way cross-over design was used to evaluate whether Salacia Chinensis (SC) reduces appetite in healthy overweight/obese individuals (body mass index 28.8 ±3.6 kg/m2; 32 ± 12 years). Forty-eight participants were fasted overnight and consumed a dose of SC (300 or 500 mg) or placebo with ...

Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors are used as antidiabetic agents to slow carbohydrate absorption. We examined a medicinal plant, Salacia, with known α-glucosidase inhibitor properties. In this clinical trial, we measured glycemic indices after a mixed meal tolerance test in healthy overweight/obese individuals. We randomized 51 subjects (BMI: 28.7 ± 3.5 kg/m2; 58% female) to Salacia Chinensis (SC) extract (300 mg and 500 mg dose) and placebo in random order using a double-blind, placebo-controlled, ...

Summary The effects of higher than recommended vitamin D doses on bone mineral density (BMD) and quality are not known. In this study, higher intakes, in postmenopausal women undergoing weight control over 1 year, had no effect on areal or volumetric BMD but prevented the deterioration in cortical bone geometry.

ABSTRACT Objective: To describe the presence of lipoprotein-X in a patient with obstructive liver disease and review the available literature on secondary hypercholesteremia occurring in the presence of lipoprotein-X. Methods: Reported is the case of a 40-year-old man who presented with severe hypercholesterolemia due to obstructive cholestasis secondary to lymphoplasmacytic sclerosing cholangitis. A literature search was conducted through PubMed for references from 1976 to 2013 regarding the ap...

Vitamin D maintains calcium and phosphate homeostasis, is essential for bone development and maintenance, and also has non-skeletal effects [1]. Severe vitamin D deficiency causes rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, while less severe vitamin D deficiency is associated with secondary hyperparathyroidism and increased bone turnover causing bone loss and fracture, especially in older populations [2]. Vitamin D deficiency has also been related to numerous diseases including diabetes and ...

Type II diabetes is an established cause of vascular impairment. Particulate air pollution is known to exacerbate cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, particularly in susceptible populations. This study set out to determine the impact of exposure to traffic pollution, with and without particle filtration, on vascular endothelial function in Type II diabetes. Endothelial production of nitric oxide (NO) has previously been linked to vascular health. Reactive hyperemia induces a significant i...

Abstract The effect of vitamin D supplementation and caloric restriction (CR) on glycemic indices and osteocalcin (OC) is not clear. In this randomized controlled double blind trial, we examined whether vitamin D 3 supplementation at 2500 IU/d (D) or placebo has differential effects on markers of insulin sensitivity and bone turnover in overweight/obese postmenopausal women during 6 weeks of caloric restriction (weight loss; WL, n = 39) compared to weight maintenance (WM, n = 37). Seventy-six wo...

Background: Weight loss (WL) negatively affects bone mineral density (BMD) in older populations and has specifically been shown in women. Objective: In this prospective controlled trial, we examined variables of bone quality and endocrine changes after intentional WL in men. Design: Thirty-eight overweight and obese [mean ± SD body mass index (in kg/m2): 31.9 ± 4.4; age: 58 ± 6 y] men were recruited to either WL through caloric restriction or weight maintenance (WM) for 6 mo. Results: There was ...

OBJECTIVE Sexual dysfunction is a prevalent problem in obese women with type 2 diabetes. This study examined the effects of intensive lifestyle intervention (ILI) in these women. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Look AHEAD is a 16-center, randomized, controlled trial evaluating the health effects of ILI compared with a control group (diabetes support and education [DSE]). The Look AHEAD Sexual Function Ancillary study included 375 female participants at five Look AHEAD sites. Participants completed t...
