This is a marketing study intended to provide additional data for marketing purposes for the eon™ FR is FDA 510(k) which has been cleared for non-invasive lipolysis of the abdomen to achieve disruption of adipocyte cells intended for non-invasive aesthetic use to achieve a desired aesthetic effect. This device is intended for individuals with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or less.
The implications of obesity, especially visceral fat, in health are well known. It would be desirable to control obesity by safe and effective treatment modalities. Aim: To assess the effectiveness of Auricular Acupuncture (AA) on body weight loss in a Portuguese sample.
Over the last 20 years, metabolic health (blood glucose and fats) of Ugandans, particularly residing in urban areas has increasingly become sub optimal. Women are the most affected. Sub optimal metabolic health increases chances of developing diseases known as non-communicable diseases (NCD); for example, type 2 diabetes and heart diseases. NCD are expensive to treat and Uganda lacks the health system to manage them. Therefore, there is need to prevent NCD. Metabolic health is mainly linked to dietary and physical activity behaviour. Studies show an increase in physical inactivity in urban Uganda, especially among women. Likewise, what urban Ugandans eat deviates from healthy recommendations by World Health Organization. For example, 9 in 10 urban Ugandans do not meet the daily fruit and vegetable health recommendations. Research shows that unhealthy eating and physical inactivity behaviours in urban Uganda are due to socio-cultural conceptions (prestige linked to weight gain and consumption of animal protein) and knowledge/skills gaps. Following the intervention mapping protocol, investigators have therefore designed an intervention to help women living in urban Uganda improve eating and physical activity behaviours to align them to healthy recommendations. Investigators target women because they are the most vulnerable health wise; possibility of passing on NCD risk from the mother to the offspring. Women are as well the most strategic for family behavioural change as they oversee dietary decisions in homes. The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of a combined food literacy and physical activity intervention in optimizing metabolic health among women of reproductive age living in Urban Uganda. The study is a cluster randomized control trail divided into two phases: a three months intervention and a three months post-intervention follow-up phase. Primary outcome is waist circumference. The target group are women of reproductive age (18 to 45 years), residing in Kampala. Intervention will be delivered through religious women group structures.
This study has two objectives: 1) to check that the daily consumption of two eggs with a particular fatty acid pattern rich in n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (α-linolenic acid, docosahexaenoic acid), conjugated-linoleic acid and conjugated-linolenic acid is well tolerated by the consumer ; 2) to evaluate the effects of the consumption of these eggs on health parameters in subjects presenting a risk of developing a metabolic disorder. This monocentric study is an interventional, randomized, double-blind, control study.
Background: Obesity is one of the most important health problems worldwide, several factors related to lifestyle as physical inactivity and unbalanced diets increase their development. This condition is characterized by low-chronic inflammation by excess of adipose tissue. The apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a caspase recruitment domain (ASC) protein is part of NLRP3 inflammasome, a complex related to inflammation and metabolic alterations. Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of physical exercise program on ASC gene expression and inflammatory markers in obese adults. Methods: 37 obese individuals were randomized to exercise-diet group or diet-group during a 4-month follow-up period. The dietary evaluation was analyzed by Nutritionist Pro software. Body composition was evaluated by bioimpedance (InBody 370). All biochemical determinations were analyzed by dry chemistry (Vitros 350). ASC messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) expression was performed by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using Taqman probes and by the 2-ΔΔcq quantification method. Cytokine levels was performed using the Bio-PlexPro™ HumanTh17Cytokine Assays (MagPix) panel. Statistical analysis was performed with Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) v.22 software.
The aim of the study is to evaluate the synergistic effects of daily consumption of food products fortified with bioactive components (fibres, polyphenols, omega-3, Slow Digestible Starch) for 9 weeks, compared to the daily intake of standard food products on low-grade inflammation in cardiometabolic risk subject. The inflammatory parameters will be assessed in fasting and in postprandial period after the consumption of a hyper-carbohydrate and hyper-lipidic test meal called Flexmeal. A metabolic stress will be induced by a fructose ingestion challenge during the last 6 days of interventional period.
Noninvasive fat reduction is a rapidly expanding field of cosmetic rejuvenation, as many patients are unwilling to suffer the downtime and healing associated with traditional invasive liposuction. The radiofrequency (RF) device has been shown to be safe and effective for non-invasive fat reduction, as well as cutaneous enhancement and improvement of skin flaccidity (BOISNIC, et al., 2014).
The main objective is to evaluate the FreeO2 device combined with noninvasive respiratory support technique for COPD patients and postoperative bariatric surgery patients. The main hypothesis is that FreeO2 device for oxygen therapy associated with NIV or nasal high flow oxygen therapy (NHFOT) allows to reach better oxygenation and avoid hypoxemia and hyperoxia.
The number of elderly individuals affected by cardiovascular diseases has been increasing in our country. Garlic (Allium sativum) has been associated with decrease of reactive species of oxygen, hypertension, high cholesterol, platelet aggregation, blood coagulation and especially cardiovascular diseases. The present study evaluated the effects of a garlic supplementation on vascular function and blood pressure in the elderly at cardiometabolic risk. Twenty-eight elderly individuals were submitted to an ingestion of four capsules of an aged garlic extract (KYOLIC® Aged Garlic Extract™). Muscle oxygenation and function were measured 180 min after interventions. Urinary thiosulfate, blood nitrate, nitrite, systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and heart rate (HR) were measured at baseline and 180 min after interventions.
This pilot project will determine whether a diet culturally-adapted to Puerto Ricans can effectively decrease cardiometabolic risk for diabetes. This will help define a culturally-appropriate, feasible, and sustainable diet intervention aimed at reducing type 2 diabetes and obesity outcomes.
