This study focus on the cause of obesity and impacts of bariatric surgery on it.
The study aims to evaluate the possible effects of an exercise program, nutritional and psychological, postural orientation and guidance of oral health on body composition, physical activity levels and lifestyle, physical fitness and health and motor performance, the factors risk of cardiovascular disease, eating habits, the cognition levels, the psychological profile, the body posture of children and adolescent with overweight and obesity, considering the presence of risk genotype associated with the development of obesity. In addition, identify the effects of orientation for oral health on the quality of life and healthy oral habits.
This study aims to assess barriers that prevent obesity patients from receiving adequate care for their condition. The non-interventional study will be administered in the form of a 30-minute, cross-sectional, online survey to various respondents. There is no experimentation involved in the process of data collection, and each survey poses minimal human risk. The study will evaluate lifestyle habits and weight management strategies perceived and/or practiced by each of 3 stakeholders in obesity: Patients (People with obesity), Providers, and Employers. A customized survey will be administered to each of the 3 stakeholders, and data will be analyzed based on respondents' answers.
Background: Extracellular RNAs (exRNAs) send genetic data from cell to cell. This is how they affect the way cells communicate with each other. There are many types of exRNA, and they each serve different roles. But they have also been linked to some diseases. Researchers want to measure exRNAs to see how they relate to certain traits over time. They will use blood samples that were taken as part of the Framingham Heart Study (FHS). Objectives: To identify cross-sectional associations of exRNAs with age, sex, and cardiometabolic risk factors. Eligibility: People ages 30-70 who had blood taken as part of the FHS Third Generation cohort. Design: Researchers will study samples that have already been collected in the FHS. There will be no active participant contact for this project, only use of data that are collected as part of planned follow up from other studies. As part of the FHS, participants gave blood samples. They gave permission for the blood to be used for research. The exRNAs from the blood samples will be studied to see how they relate to certain traits. These include age, sex, and body mass index. The exRNAs will also be studied for their usefulness as biomarkers of risk for subclinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. No study participants will be contacted for this study.
Intervention targets youth ages 14 - 19 participating in soccer teams. The intervention group will be given face to face nutrition lessons and have access to an online immersive learning environment. The comparison group will not. The project will test if the immersive learning environment is effective in preventing unhealthy weight gain.
Individuals with prediabetes are at increased risk for developing diabetes. Higher hemoglobin A1c's (6.1-6.4%) are associated with a high risk of developing diabetes. It is known that programs such weight management classes and one-on-one counseling with registered dieticians can lead to weight loss and decrease the risk of diabetes. However, engagement of Kaiser Permanente Colorado members in these activities is low. The purpose of this study is to determine which of three outreach methods is most effective in increasing engagement in these activities.
The main goal of the study is to provide a unique multidimensional picture of the health of the population with simultaneous optimal standards of sampling, processing and storing of data and biomaterial that will allow discovering novel mechanisms in the development and progression of common civilization diseases. In the effect it will improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
The First 1000 Days (conception to age 2) is a crucial period for the development and prevention of obesity and its adverse consequences in mother-child pairs and their families. The overall aim of the First 1000 Days program is to work across early-life systems to prevent obesity, promote healthy routines and behaviors, address social determinants of health, and reduce health disparities among vulnerable children and families at the MGH Chelsea and Revere HealthCare Centers, and DotHouse Health. The study aims to simultaneously implement and evaluate an obesity prevention program across early life systems to reduce the prevalence of obesity risk factors within racial/ethnic minority families, close the gap in maternal-child health disparities, and assess and address social determinants of health.
Online visit and online counseling via telemedicine technology is a new service for obese people who wish to lose weight but because of their active lifestyle and time limitation cannot come to clinic. The purpose of this study was to examine the efficacy this technology-based intervention on weight loss in obese and overweight female adults.
The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of limited portion of almond consumption after a successful weight loss by a comprehensive weight loss plan (NovinDiet Plan) on weight maintenance in obese female adults.
