The principal aim of the present study is to analyze adiponectin, omentin-1, apelin and visfatin plasma levels in patients with and without AF in an effort to identify their potential role in the development of AF.
The purpose of this study is to test the potential ability of vinegar to significantly decrease visceral fat in healthy adults with "central obesity". During the 8-week trial, participants will either consume a low-dose vinegar pill (control treatment) or a vinegar drink twice per day. Research Aim and Hypothesis H1 Daily vinegar consumption will be associated with loss in visceral fat (as measured by DXA) after 8 weeks compared to the placebo treatment (low-vinegar pill) in a group of healthy adults with "central obesity". H2 Daily vinegar consumption will be associated with a decrease in abdominal circumference after 8 weeks compared to the placebo treatment (low-vinegar pill) in a group of healthy adults with "central obesity".
The objective of the proposed study is to enroll women with obesity that will undergo a controlled, energy restricted feeding intervention to test the effects of chronic ethanol consumption on adipose distribution and circulating testosterone during weight loss.
This is a large and comprehensively phenotyped cohort with fasting glycaemia where the predictive value of body composition and anthropometric measures of total and central fat distribution for postprandial carbohydrate intolerance are studied.
Given the increasing prevalence of obesity, there is an urgent need to find better strategies to promote physical activity in the community. The present study will invite 70-year-olds with central (abdominal) obesity to participate in a 10-week aerobic exercise program. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two equally large groups. The first group will complete the exercise program in instructor-led groups. The second group will complete the program at home with the help of an on-line video.
The investigators propose to undertake a controlled dietary intervention study in UAE subjects with visceral obesity to examine the feasibility of a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and/or whole-grain fiber in the UAE population. The research will also investigate the longer-term influence of increased fruits, vegetables and fiber consumption on health and its capacity to sustain lifestyle change.
In line with improvements in oncologic outcome for patients with esophageal cancer, the attritional impact of curative treatment with respect to functional status and health-related quality of life (HR-QL) in survivorship is increasingly an important focus. Functional recovery after surgery for esophageal cancer is commonly confounded by anorexia and early satiety, which may reduce oral nutrient intake with consequent malnutrition and weight loss. One in three disease-free patients has more than fifteen percent body weight loss at three years after esophagectomy. The ESPEN Special Interest Group on cachexia-anorexia in chronic wasting diseases has defined sarcopenia as skeletal muscle index (SMI) of ≤39 cm2/m2 for women and ≤55cm2/m2 for men, while similar cut-off points have been validated in upper gastrointestinal and respiratory malignancies (less than 38.5 cm2/m2 for women and 52.4 cm2/m2 for men). The European Working Group on Sarcopenia in Older People (EWGSOP) additionally recommends that assessment should also include determination of muscle function, for example gait speed or grip strength, where possible. The presence of sarcopenia is associated with increase treatment-associated morbidity, impaired HR-QL, reduced physical and role functioning, and increased pain scores in older adults. In addition, a previous longitudinal study demonstrated that the decline in HR-QL over a six year period in older adults was accelerated in the presence of sarcopenia. As such, sarcopenia may represent a modifiable barrier to recovery and subsequent retention of HR-QL and functional status, and may reinforce a persistent illness identity, among patients following potentially curative treatment for esophageal cancer.
This study evaluates the effect of intermittent calorie restriction versus continued calorie restriction on weight loss, gene expression profile of subcutaneous adipose tissue and abdominal fat distribution.
While perirenal fat measurement is an easy reproducible surrogate of visceral fat, its value as independent parameter in predicting postoperative complications after colorectal resection remains poorly investigated. The investigators want to test the value of perirenal fat as surrogate of visceral obesity as risk factor for morbidity in colorectal surgery and to compare it to the effect of Body mass index (BMI) and Waist- Hip ratio (WHR).
We aimed to risk faoctors for GERD and association between visceral obesity, plasma adipoline(leptin, adiponectin, IL-6, TNF-α)and development of reflux esophagitis in healthy Koreans.
