Body Composition and White Adipose Tissue Inflammation

The investigators want to find a better way to predict the risk of having fatty tissue inflammation by using a different approach to finding out body fat composition. In this study, the investigators want to estimate the body fat composition using a DEXA scan. DEXA stands for dual energy X-ray ...

Phase N/A

Measurement of Body Fat in Infants

Up to 10 infants will complete the study aimed to establish a technique for measuring whole body adiposity and brown adipose tissue in infant subjects using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry and magnetic resonance imaging, respectively.

Phase N/A

Low Versus High-glycemic Index Post-exercise Diets for Improving Metabolism and Body Composition

The increase in triglycerides after a meal (i.e. postprandial triglycerides) is a strong risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Overweight/obese individuals have a greater triglyceride response to the same meal compared to lean individuals; therefore they are at greater risk. If exercise is performed the evening before a high-fat breakfast, the ...

Phase N/A

Breakfast and Muscle Health in Children

One in every three children ages 2-19 years is overweight or obese. Although multifactorial in nature, obesity is primarily attributed to a mismatch between energy intake and energy expenditure (EE). Daily EE (DEE) can be partitioned between resting metabolic rate (RMR), EE associated with physical activity, and the thermic effect ...

Phase N/A

DXA Study of Precision and Reliability

Osteoporosis and obesity are highly prevalent and disabling chronic diseases. Osteoporosis is a disease of low bone mass, which predisposes people to bone fragility and increased risk of bone fractures. Obesity is a disease characterized by excess body fat levels, which predisposes people to diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, cancer, ...
