Abstract Background Type 2 diabetes and cardiometabolic comorbidities manifesting as the metabolic syndrome (MetS) are highly prevalent in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients attending cardiac rehabilitation (CR). The study aimed to determine the prevalence of cardiometabolic derangements and MetS, and compare post-CR clinical responses in a large cohort of CHD patients with and without diabetes. Methods Analyses were conducted on 3953 CHD patients [age: 61.1 ± 10.5 years; 741 (18.7%) with dia...

Overweight and obesity, defined as ‘ abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health’ ,1 has nearly tripled since 1975. With ~1.9 billion and 650 million adults overweight and obese, respectively, these conditions have reached epidemic levels,1 with devastating health consequences.2 Traditionally, in clinical practice, diagnosis is made with the use of anthropometric measures (height and weight, waist and hip circumferences), while weight loss is the treatment goal for all interven...

Abstract Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) programs, focused on improving the health trajectory of patients with cardiovascular disease, strive to increase physical activity (PA) and cardiorespiratory fitness. However, historically low compliance with recommended PA has prompted exploration of alternatives to traditional courses of exercise therapy. One alternative, exergaming, or the requirement of physical exercise inherent to a video game's activities, has shown to have a promising impact in improv...

Abstract Much of the focus of precision medicine has been directed toward genomics, despite the fact that “lifestyle and behavioral factors” are included in the description of precision medicine. Numerous structured diet and PA interventions have demonstrated success in preventing and/or reducing chronic-disease risk. The use of personal health technologies has expanded exponentially in the health care arena; there are a number of consumer-based technologies yielding health information to indivi...

Abstract The primary focus of public health recommendations related to the prevention of food-related chronic disease has been on the adoption of healthy dietary patterns; however, implementation has been challenging. There has been increasing recognition that an individual's diet and environment may impact disease susceptibility by affecting the expression of genes involved in critical metabolic pathways. Precision nutrition (PN) has emerged to translate discoveries about diversity in nutrient ...

OBJECTIVE The study objective was to examine the impact of race/ethnicity on associations between anthropometric measures and diabetes risk. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 136,112 postmenopausal women aged 50–79 years participating in the Women’s Health Initiative without baseline cancer or diabetes were followed for 14.6 years. BMI, waist circumference (WC), and waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) were measured in all participants, and a subset of 9,695 had assessment of whole-body fat mass, whole...

Abstract Precision medicine recently has gained popularity, calling for more individualized approaches to prevent and/or reduce chronic-disease risk and to reduce non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease (CVD). Encompassed under Precision medicine initiatives is the concept of healthy living medicine (HLM), which emphasizes the promotion of lifestyle and behavioral practices including physical activity and healthy dietary pattern. Precision measurements have the potential to impr...
