There is ongoing scientific interest regarding comorbidities associated with the metabolic syndrome (MeTS). MeTS comprises a combination of parameters that predispose individuals to the development of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Three or more of the following criteria are necessary: fasting glucose > 110 mg/dl (5.6 mmol/l), hypertriglyceridemia > 150 mg/dl (1.7 mmol/l), HDL levels 130/85 mmHg, waist circumference (values for Mediterranean populations > 94 cm (men)/> 89 cm (...

Abstract Background Spexin is a novel peptide predominantly produced in human white adipose tissue and has recently been implicated as a potential signal in the regulation of body weight, energy homeostasis, and satiety. The effect of bariatric surgery on spexin is unknown. Objectives To study the effect of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery on endogenous spexin concentration and various risk factors of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease in youth with severe obesity. Setting Univers...

This is a single case of a 65-year-old American woman who presented with substantial weight gain and insulin resistance (IR) post-Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery. Before RYGB, she had reached 340 lbs (155 kg) and a body mass index (BMI) of 56.6 kg/m 2 . The surgery resulted in a 70 lbs (32 kg) weight loss, bringing her BMI, per cent total weight loss (%TWL) and per cent excess weight loss (%EWL) to 44.9 kg/m 2 , 20.6% and 36.8%, respectively. Unfortunately, her BMI would return to 53.6 k...

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of walking-training on the balance between pro- and antiangiogenic signals and on the angiogenic potential in postmenopausal women.Thirty-four postmenopausal women (56.18 ± 4.24 years) participated in a 13 weeks program of walking-training. Anthropometric measures, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), interleukin (IL)-1α, IL-1β, IL-2, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12p70, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), C-reactive protein, insulin, IGF-1, cortisol, deh...

Background Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide, with prevalence above 30% in many adult populations. Strongly associated with obesity, weight loss through diet and physical activity is the mainstay of its management. Weight loss can be difficult to achieve and maintain however, and uncertainty exists as to which lifestyle changes are most effective. Objective The aim of this work was to systematically evaluate randomised controlle...

AbstractOrange juice consumption can promote lower levels of oxidative stress and inflammation due to the antioxidant activity of citrus flavonoids and carotenoids. In addition, red-fleshed sweet orange juice (red orange juice) also contains lycopene. This study investigated the effects of red orange juice consumption on risk factors for metabolic syndrome. Volunteers consumed red orange juice daily for 8 weeks, with clinical and biochemical assessments performed at baseline and on the final day...

BACKGROUND: There has been a few studies about the predictability of metabolic syndrome (MetS) based on the Framingham risk score (FRS) as a tool for predicting the risk of 10-years cardiovascular diseases (CVD) in Iranian population. The aim of this study was to compare the risk stratification obtained with the FRS and MetS in a cohort of the Iranian population. METHODS: In this population-based study Kerman Coronary Artery Disease Risk study, Iran, MetS was diagnosed as defined by the revised ...

Biochemical markers indicative of disease and cellular processes in diabetes are surveyed against existing clinical utility. Markers are categorized by indications for hyperglycemic stress, oxidative stress, and inflammation. The adipokines and fatty acid metabolism markers are further surveyed as diabetic stress measures during obesity. Inflammation markers are separated by those indicative of adipose stress, those providing insight into endothelial dysfunction, and those indicating innate immu...
