The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of multiple doses of LLF580 administered subcutaneously over 3 months in obese subjects. In addition, the study will also determine early efficacy signals in various metabolic diseases associated with elevated triglycerides and/or obesity.
The aim of the present study is to develop and validate the effects of a new cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) using digital healthcare mobile apps such as Noom Coach and InBody.
The purpose of this study is to explore how working with a partner can influence participation in a church wellness program. There are many different types of church wellness programs. Church members are more likely to participate and achieve goals in these programs when they have peer support. The researcher would like to know what African American men and women think about working with a support partner. This information will help researchers design better church wellness programs. The participants are being asked to take part in this research because the investigators believe that it is helpful to share feelings and thoughts about experiences working with a partner to achieve health goals. This knowledge will be used to create church wellness programs that will help African American men and women prevent disease and live healthier lives.
This study evaluates differences in brain function and cognitive performance in adolescents with type 2 diabetes (T2D) compared to non diabetic controls (both obese and lean) and correlates these changes with obesity, insulin resistance, and glycemic control in youth with T2D.
Obesity is associated with poor asthma control and greater healthcare utilization and costs. In this study the researchers will examine the biologic and behavioral interrelationships between these conditions and their impact on outcomes. Towards this end, the researchers will conduct an observational prospective cohort study of 400 obese asthmatic patients treated at institutions in New York City and Denver, and develop and pilot test educational and counseling modules that take an integrated approach to asthma and obesity self-management support.
The focus of this study is to examine the feasibility of integrating Vinyasa yoga into a Standard Behavioral Weight Loss Intervention, to examine whether engagement differs between Vinyasa yoga and a restorative form of Hatha yoga within a Standard Behavioral Weight Loss Intervention, and to use this information to inform an expanded study to directly test the effectiveness of these interventions on weight loss in adults.
School-based interventions have shown mixed results. Most studies have lacked enough statistical power and have been carried out in North America and Europe. The Juntos Santiago is a cluster-randomized trial based on a gamification strategy conducted in Santiago de Chile. The trial uses elements of a game such as points, levels and rewards along with a strong community participation component. Children voted their enrollment and collectively chose the rewards (two per year, one activity and another structural) they are playing for. The intervention consists of a healthy snacks challenge, a steps challenge and an activity challenge. The primary outcome is change in z-BMI and waist circumference.
Time-restricted feeding (TRF) is a novel type of intermittent fasting that involves eating within a daily period of 10 hours or less, followed by fasting for at least 14 hours daily. Several studies in rodents report that TRF reduces body weight, improves blood sugar control, and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease—even when food intake is matched to the control group or no weight loss occurs. Preliminary evidence suggests that TRF may also increase weight loss, fat loss, and reduce the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in humans. This study will test whether TRF enhances fat loss and increases weight loss in adults with obesity, relative to conventional dieting alone. In addition, this study will determine whether TRF reduces risk factors for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease and will measure the feasibility and acceptability of TRF.
Background: Family-based lifestyle intervention programmes have been known to reduce overweight and improve cardiovascular risk in adolescent obesity . This study was designed to address the gap in service provision of a family based weight management program for overweight and obese adolescents. The LITE (Lifestyle Intervention for obese teenagers) group program is a 6-month, family-based behavioural lifestyle intervention, specifically designed to treat obesity in adolescents 10-16 years referred to the Weight Management Clinic. The main principles underpinning LITE program are that parents are identified as the agents of change responsible for implementing lifestyle change in the family . Methods: The study design is a two-arm randomized controlled trial that recruited 60 overweight and obese adolescents 10-16 year olds that attended Kandang Kerbau Women and Children's Hospital(KKH) weight management clinic. Adolescents with secondary cause for obesity are excluded. Participants are randomized to LITE program with usual care or usual care. Briefly, the LITE program involves four x 180 min weekly sessions, followed by three x 90 min monthly sessions, for adolescents and parents. The key aspects covered in the LITE program are in keeping with Health Promotion Board guidelines for the management of overweight and obesity and include healthy food choices and eating patterns, increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary behavior. The parenting aspects aim to support and increase parental capacity to implement and maintain the lifestyle changes. The program takes a solution focused approach with families identifying small changes that they would like to try each week instead of a child-centric approach. Outcome measurement are assessed at 3 and 6 months post baseline and include anthropometric measurements, physical activity, dietary intake, metabolic profile, improvement in positive parenting behaviour and measurement of family support. Primary outcome is change in body mass index (BMI) z-score at 6 months. Secondary aim is to evaluate the changes in waist-height ratio and fat percentage change and improvement in positive parenting behaviour.
This study aims to identify new morphological and quantitative magnetic imaging parameters of pituitary gland and sellar region in overweight and obese patient at baseline and after 3 years, dividing patients in 3 groups (weight loss through diet and lifestyle changes, weight loss through bariatric surgery, no weight loss)
