Objective: The objective of this study is to assess the effects of sibutramine on body weight, body fat distribution, insulin resistance, plasma leptin, lipid profile and blood pressure profiles in hypertensive obese patients. Methods: Eighty-six central obese hypertensive patients (BMI = 39 ± 5 kg/m2, 84% of women, 48 ± 8.5 years old) were placed on a hypocaloric diet and placebo therapy for 4 weeks. They were then randomized to receive sibutramine (10 mg) or placebo for 24 weeks. Both, before ...

Objective: To compare methods for the assessment of visceral fat with computed tomography (CT) and establish cutoffs to define visceral obesity based on such alternative methods. Research Methods and Procedures: One hundred women (50.4 ± 7.7 years; BMI 39.2 ± 5.4 kg/m2) underwent anthropometric evaluation, bioelectrical impedance, DXA, abdominal ultrasonography (US), and CT scan. Results: Waist circumference, waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), and US-determined visceral fat values showed the best correla...

INTRODUCTION: Obese people are at higher cardiovascular risk than people with normal body weight. The objective of this study was to establish the relationship between obesity, body fat distribution and cardiovascular risk factors. METHODS: Body mass index (BMI), waist-hip ratio (WHR) systolic (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP), plasma cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose levels were determined in a population of 499 overweight and obese patients (432F/67M; age 39±12.9y). RESULTS: High p...

OBJECTIVE —Visceral obesity is shown to be a predictor of morbidity and mortality. We evaluated the association of measurements of generalized adiposity and visceral fat area (VFA), with abnormalities of metabolic syndrome (MS). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS —Seventy-six women (47.9 ± 9.2 years) with BMI of 38.7 ± 5.4 kg/m 2 underwent anthropometric measurements, laboratory procedures, bioeletrical impedance, and abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan. Diagnosis of MS was based on the presence of...

Obesity is an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease and it is associated with insulin resistance, which contributes to the development of dyslipidemia, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes. The coexistence of hypertension and diabetes increases the risk for macrovascular and microvascular complications, predisposing patients to congestive heart failure, coronary heart disease, cerebral and peripheral vascular diseases, nephropathy, and retinopathy. In obese diabetic patients, body weig...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effects of weight reduction with 10mg of sibutramine or placebo on blood pressure during 24 hours (ambulatory blood pressure monitoring), on left ventricular mass, and on antihypertensive therapy in 86 obese and hypertensive patients for 6 months. METHODS: The patients underwent echocardiography, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, and measurement of the levels of hepatic enzymes prior to and after treatment with sibutramine or placebo. RESULTS: The group using sibutra...
