Background: Adipose tissue (AT) around and within non-AT organs (i.e., ectopic adiposity) is emerging as a strong risk factor for type 2 diabetes (T2D). Not known is whether major ectopic adiposity depots, such as hepatic, skeletal muscle, and pericardial adiposity (PAT), are associated with T2D independent of visceral adiposity (VAT). More data are particularly needed among high-risk nonobese minority populations, as the race/ethnic gap in T2D risk is greatest among nonobese. Methods: Thus, we ...

Background: Obesity is a chronic disease with several co-morbidities that increase morbidity and mortality and decrease quality of life. Psychopathologies are an important group of co-morbidities. In this study, it was aimed to search for the presence of depression and sexual dysfunction in patients with obesity, examine impact of obesity on marital adjustment, and highlight those important problems that are usually overlooked. Methods: Fifty patients who were seen in the obesity outpatient clin...

Background: Evidence suggests that metabolic syndrome (MetS) is highly prevalent in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, data on the prevalence of MetS in patients having both OSAS and COPD, or overlap syndrome (OS), are scarce. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence and identify predictors of MetS in patients with OS. Methods: MetS was evaluated in consecutive patients who were diagnosed with OS by polysom...

Background: We aimed to assess the burden of metabolic syndrome (MetS), and evaluate the phenotypic variation of MetS in a population at high risk for diabetes in urban Karachi, Pakistan. Methods: This study was embedded in a lifestyle intervention trial for the prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus. The study population comprised participants who belonged to urban households in Karachi, Pakistan. Results: Among 15,590 individuals who were screened through diabetes risk score (DRS), 3945 indivi...

Background: 11 Beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenases (11HSDs) are enzymes involved in the interconversion of cortisol and cortisone. There are two isoenzymes of 11HSD, 11HSD1 and 11HSD2. A causative role of 11HSD, particularly 11HSD1, in metabolic syndrome is well established in experimental animals. However, its role in human metabolic syndrome is less clear. We examined the influence of global 11HSD activity on metabolic syndrome in the general population, using the circulating cortisol:cortisone...

Background: Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) provides full nutrition support to critically ill patients with an impaired digestive tract. Patients who receive TPN support are at higher risk for complications such as hyperglycemia. In our study, we aim to assess the prevalence of hyperglycemia induced by TPN and identify its risk factors in hospitalized adult patients. Methods: Patients who received TPN between January 2012 and December 2017 at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center-St. Margaret...

Background: The state of prediabetes comprises atherosclerotic changes leading to decreased vascular function in humans. This study examined the effects on incretin mimetics on vascular physiology in the prediabetic postprandial state. Methods: Fifteen obese adults with prediabetes participated in a randomized, crossover, double-blinded trial comparing the postprandial effects of exenatide, saxagliptin, and placebo on peripheral vasodilation. All studies utilized a standardized high-fat meal. Re...
Background: The triglyceride (TG)/high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) ratio is related to insulin resistance (IR). However, little information is available on whether TG/HDL-C is associated with IR and components of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and how lifestyle habits affect TG/HDL-C in the healthy Japanese population. Methods: In total, 1068 Japanese subjects who had undergone an annual health examination and who were not receiving medication were recruited. Determinants for TG/HDL-C rat...
