Abstract Media exposes children to weight biased messaging by presenting overweight characters negatively. Although bias against human figures and human characters has been examined, children’s bias against non-human animated characters is unstudied. Children’s (N = 60; 4–6 years old) weight bias against human and non-human characters was measured. Children saw characters of different weights (thin, overweight), genders (girl, boy), and stimuli type (human-line drawing, human-photo, non-human ca...

Abstract Obesity is a health concern that is recognized as a critical factor for vulnerability to influenza A/pdmH1N1 virus infection, with epidemiological and clinical impacts. In humans, obesity induces disturbances in inflammatory and immune responses to the influenza virus and in some cases, this leads to severe complications, with fatal outcomes. Obesity impairs immunity by altering the response of cytokines, resulting in a decrease in the cytotoxic cell response of immunocompetent cells wh...

Abstract Objective The obesity epidemic has been compounded by the stress of weight stigmatization. Resilience helps adolescents achieve positive outcomes during times of stress. This study aimed to determine relationships between overweight/obesity, perceived overweight/obesity, body size dissatisfaction (BSD), and/or resilience using a novel assessment tool among adolescents, and to determine if a modifiable factor such as resilience holds potential for treatments for BSD. Methods Adolescents,...

Abstract Objective Although bariatric surgery is a durable treatment for patients with severe obesity, it does not directly address behavioural and psychological factors that potentially contribute to weight regain post-surgery. Psychological interventions, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), can be challenging to access due to physical limitations and practical barriers. Telephone-based CBT (Tele-CBT) can improve eating psychopathology and psychological distress before and after surger...

Abstract The aim of this single center prospective controlled study in volunteers with obesity and overweight was to evaluate the effect of a patient therapeutic education program (PTE group) combined with spa therapy on weight, physical activity, eating habits and quality of life versus spa therapy alone (control group). The main endpoint was weight change at 5 months after the end of the program. The PTE group of 151 subjects with obesity or overweight followed a 3-week program combining patie...

Abstract Background Obesity is an in independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Goal To describe the early LV remodelling pattern in patients with overweight and obesity and structurally normal hearts. Methods Consecutive patients (n = 2374), with structurally normal hearts and BMI ≥ 18.5 kg/m2, undergoing prospective mid-diastolic ECG gated CTCA were selected. Left ventricular mass (LVM) and Left ventricular mid-diastolic volume (LVMDV) were measured. The concentricity index (LVM/LVMDV...

Abstract Background There is a lack of evidence regarding the impact of changes in waist circumference on disability among older populations in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This research examines the association between changes in waist circumference with disability in the older populations of Indonesia, and whether the associations are dependent on wealth or baseline abdominal obesity levels. Methods In 2007 the INDEPTH-WHO Study on global AGEing and adult health (SAGE) was conduct...

Abstract Chronopharmacology is the study of the varying responses of drugs to changes in biological timing and endogenous periodicities. The selective sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor, dapagliflozin, is a globally prescribed antihyperglycemic drug. Although dapagliflozin is usually administered once a day, the specific intake time is generally not mentioned. Therefore, this study aimed at investigating the diurnal effects of dapagliflozin on high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity in mice. F...

Abstract Data on attitudes and perceptions towards obesity are lacking in Asia. Participants who attended an obesity public forum were surveyed concerning obesity and its treatment options. Although obesity is generally accepted as a disease with biological underpinnings such as hormonal imbalances and slow metabolic rate, it is also regarded as an issue of personal responsibility. 65.1% believed that weight-loss medications are dangerous. 20.6% thought that pharmacotherapy is effective for weig...
