The triglyceride-glucose index (TyG index) is a tool for insulin resistance evaluation, however, little is known about its association with coronary artery disease (CAD), which is the major cardiovascular death cause, and what factors may be associated with TyG index. To evaluate the association between the TyG index and the prevalence of CAD phases, as well as cardiovascular risk factors. The baseline data of patients in secondary care in cardiology from Brazilian Cardioprotective Nutritional P...
Abstract Background Appropriate dietary recommendations represent a key part of secondary prevention in cardiovascular disease (CVD). Objective We evaluated the effectiveness of the implementation of a nutritional program on quality of diet, cardiovascular events and death in patients with established CVD. Design In this open-label, multicentre trial conducted in 35 sites in Brazil, we randomly assigned (1:1) patients aged 45 years or older to receive either the BALANCE Program (experimental gro...

ABSTRACTPistachio is a nut with high polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), polyphenols and carotenoids content, and the synergism between these compounds appears to affect glucose metabolism. In this systematic review we analyzed studies in which the effect of chronic consumption of pistachio on markers of glucose metabolism was evaluated in pre-diabetic and type 2 diabetics. We used the PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane and Lilacs databases. The research terms used were...

Abstract Test-day milk, fat and protein yields and somatic cell score (SCS) of Brazilian Holstein cattle were used to study the effect of fixed (HTDF) vs random (HTDR) contemporary groups (herd-test-date) with or without unknown parent groups (UPG) using an autoregressive test-day animal model for genetic evaluations. Therefore, four models were used in this study to evaluate these effects: HTDF with or without UPG and HTDR with or without UPG. A total of 4,142,740 test-day records from the firs...

ABSTRACTPurpose: We evaluated postprandial response of the lipid metabolism markers after the intake of a high-saturated fat (HSM) or high-monounsaturated fat meal (HMM).Methods: A randomized, controlled and acute intervention study included 63 women (age 26.9 ± 6.1 years): 35 normal weight (NW) and 28 overweight (OW) (total body fat [TBF] 24.7 ± 3.9% and 36.6 ± 3.9%, respectively). After 12 hours of fasting, each subject was given one of the two test meals standardized, including 2 muffins and ...

Abstract Yacon ( Smallanthus sonchifolius (Poepp.) H. Rob) is a natural source of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) studied for its potential as a functional food for prevention and management of chronic diseases, in part associated with its positive impact on glycemic response and body weight. However, yacon beneficial effect on glucose response and food intake control are still controversial. We investigated the acute effect of yacon consumption on glycemic response, subjective appetitive sensation...

The objective of this work was to evaluate the criteria for the formation of contemporary groups (CGs) in the genetic evaluation of body weight at weaning in Nellore cattle. A total of 713,474 records from 3,066 herds located in Midwestern and Northern Brazil were used. Data were obtained from the genealogical registry of zebu breeds of the Brazilian association of zebu breeders. Data structures were defined based on the number of standard deviations (SDs) for outlier removal (±2.0, ±2.5, ±3.0, ...
