The present cross-sectional study evaluated the association of vitamin D receptor (VDR) variants with serum 25(OH)D3 levels and their interaction on essential hypertension (EH) risk. 1539 patients were eligible in the study population. Two loci in VDR gene (rs2239179, rs2189480) were genotyped by TaqMan probe assays. Logistic regression, Kruskal–Wallis rank test and Chi-square test were used to determine the association among VDR polymorphisms, serum vitamin D metabolites, and the risk of EH. In...
Previous studies consistently report that diet quality is inversely associated with risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes. However, few studies have assessed the association of diet quality with serum lipoproteins, an intermediate marker of cardio-metabolic health, or assessed whether type 2 diabetes modifies these associations. This study assessed associations of diet quality (evaluated using the Alternative Healthy Eating Index (AHEI)), and the interaction of diet quality wi...
N-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 LC-PUFAs) have positive effect on cognitive function with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is still controversial. The aim for this meta-analysis was to assess the scientific evidence published in the last 10 years on the effects of n-3 LC-PUFAs intake on MCI patients to explore whether n-3 LC-PUFAs have positive effective. A comprehensive literature search was developed using the Google Scholar, EMBASE, and PubMed database. The pooled effect for al...
While the satiety quotient (SQ) is increasingly used in pediatric populations, the present study assessed its reliability and reproducibility in adolescents with obesity. Sixty-eight adolescents with obesity were enrolled. Anthropometric measurements and body composition (DXA) were assessed. They randomly completed two experimental sessions: (i) condition with a standardized breakfast used to calculate SQ (C1); (ii) condition with the same breakfast and ad libitum lunch and dinner buffet meals (...
The association of components of a low saturated fat (SFA) and of a Mediterranean diet was tested with atherosclerosis biomarkers in 190 familial hypercholesterolemia adults (FH) from Brazil (BR) and Spain (SP). Median blood LDL-C, Apolipoprotein B (apoB), and C reactive protein (hs-CRP) concentrations were higher in BR than in SP: 179.0 vs.161 mg/dL; 141 vs. 103 mg/dL; and 1.6 vs. 0.8 mg/L respectively (all p < 0.001). In BR there was lower median total fat (22.3 vs. 38.3%) and SFA (8.1 vs. 12....

Soluble forms of vascular adhesion molecules, ICAM-1 and VCAM-1, accelerate atherosclerosis pathogenesis. The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of daily supplementation of 3 g cinnamon on the plasma levels of ICAM-1 and VCAM-1 among patients with type 2 diabetes. This randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial was performed on 44 adult patients with type 2 diabetes aged 25–70 years. The patients were randomized to two groups of intervention (n = 22) and control (n = 22), d...

Maternal nutrition is recognized as one of the main determinants of fetal growth. We analyzed the risk of having a Small for Gestational Age (SGA) newborn according to maternal dairy intake during pregnancy. A matched case-control study was conducted in Spain. Dietary intake during pregnancy was assessed using a validated Food Frequency Questionnaire. Odds ratios (OR) and their 95% confidence intervals (CI) were estimated using conditional logistic regression models. 518 cases (SGA) and 518 cont...
