Abstract Background Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is emerging as a significant public health challenge in Nepal. Behavioural, social and economic changes are likely to play a part in the rise of this chronic disease, as they are in many developing countries. A better understanding of the relationship between physical activity (PA), socioeconomic factors and T2DM can inform the design of prevention programs. This study aimed to identify the path relationships between PA, socioeconomic position,...

Abstract Background The aim of this study was to assess the association between body shape trajectories and all-cause mortality in a Mediterranean cohort. Methods Using a group-based modeling approach to fit body shape trajectories from age 5 to 40 years, among 11,423 participants from the Spanish SUN cohort, we assessed the subsequent risk of all-cause mortality. To create the trajectories, we used a censored normal model as a polynomial function of age. Cox regression models adjusted for sex, ...

Abstract Background and Aims Metabolic syndrome (MetS) increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Despite a higher prevalence of MetS in African American (AA) women, little is known about the effectiveness of lifestyle interventions in improving metabolic markers in this high-risk group. This study investigated the effectiveness of a community-based lifestyle intervention delivered by lay health coaches in reducing MetS among AA women. Methods and Results A cluster-randomi...
Abstract Background and Aims The assessment of visceral adiposity is of great significance for the prevention of hyperuricemia (HUA), especially in non-obese individuals. The metabolic score for visceral fat (METS-VF) is a newly proposed surrogate of visceral obesity. We aimed to evaluate the longitudinal associations of METS-VF with the risk of HUA in non-obese adults. Methods and Results A total of 16,058 non-obese adults without HUA were included for this retrospective cohort analyses. The cr...

Abstract Aims Kisspeptin-10 (KP-10), a potent vasoconstrictor and inhibitor of angiogenesis, and its receptor, GPR54, have currently received much attention with respect to atherosclerosis, since both KP-10 and GPR54 are expressed at high levels in atheromatous plaques and restenotic lesions after wire-injury. The present review introduces the emerging roles of the KP-10/GPR54 system in atherosclerosis. Data Synthesis KP-10 suppresses migration and proliferation of human umbilical vein endotheli...

Abstract Aims This study aimed to summarize earlier studies on the effects of dairy consumption on inflammatory biomarkers in adults and to quantify these effects through meta-analysis. Data Synthesis A comprehensive search of all relevant articles, published up to December 2019 indexed in PubMed, ISI (Institute for Scientific Information), EmBase, Scopus, and Google Scholar was done using relevant keywords. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that examined the effect of dairy products consumpti...

Abstract Background and Aims Elevated homocysteine concentration is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. The aim of our study was to determine the environmental and genetic factors associated with serum homocysteine concentration in healthy young adults. Moreover, we aimed to determine the cut-off value of homocysteine concentration for predicting unfavorable MTHFR genotype and to investigate whether this association is modified by dietary patterns and serum folate status. Me...

Abstract Background and aims FTO variants are among genetic variants frequently associated with obesity. We analyzed the association between FTO rs1421085 polymorphism and obesity, dietary intake, cardiorespiratory fitness, physical activity and socioeconomic status (SES) from age 9 to 25 years. Methods and results The sample included both birth cohorts (originally n = 1176) of the Estonian Children Personality Behaviour and Health Study. The association between FTO rs1421085 and obesity, dietar...
