Body Composition Measurements in Chronic Heart Failure

Feeding optimization and nutritional assessment in patients with severe heart failure are challenging. The reasons are rather complex and many questions have not been answered yet. Unfortunately, no clear and definitive guidelines are available from the big Nutritional Societies - The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN), American ...

Evolution of Adipokines and Body Composition in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Receiving Tocilizumab Therapy

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease associated with cardiovascular morbidity. Tocilizumab (TCZ), a monoclonal antibody against the interleukin-6 receptor is an effective new biotherapy for the treatment of RA. This treatment is associated with increased LDL and HDL-cholesterol lipid parameters. Adipokines are adipose tissue-specific secreted molecules, which have ...

Effects of Empagliflozin on Liver Fat Content Energy Metabolism and Body Composition in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

In this multicentre, prospective, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized, 2-arm parallel, interventional pilot study HCL and intramyocellular lipids (IMCL) will be quantified with 1H magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy. Hepatic ATP and inorganic phosphate (Pi) concentrations will be assessed with 31P MR spectroscopy (1). Whole-body and hepatic insulin sensitivity and metabolic flexibility will ...

The Addition of Probiotic Consumption to a Nutritional Intervention and Caloric Restriction on Body Weight and Composition in Overweight Participants

Limited interventional human studies suggest that probiotic supplementation may be a beneficial strategy for promoting weight loss when added to a nutritional intervention via their effects on lipid absorption and metabolic signaling molecules. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of addition of a probiotic supplementation to ...

Expression of Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) and Body Composition Modification in Patients With Septic Shock

With a prevalence of more than 15% in ICU, septic shock today represents a real public health problem and remains the leading cause of mortality in ICU. Undernutrition is characterized by an alteration of the body composition and in particular by a loss of muscle mass. In intensive care, there ...

VolumE maNagement Under Body Composition Monitoring in Critically Ill patientS on CRRT

Although monitoring fluid balance for continuous renal replacement therapy-treated patients is an important issue, most physicians usually use conventional methods such as the difference between the amount of intake and output (I & O), which is not objective way. Meanwhile, bioimpedance electrical vector analysis presents the patients' fluid status with ...

Body Composition Monitoring(BCM) for Determination of the Fluid Status in Patients Undergoing General Anesthesia

Patients undergoing anesthesia and surgery receive intravenous fluids during the procedure. The amount of administered fluid depends on the type of surgery, cardiovascular stability and intraoperative losses like hemorrhage. Fluid overload as well as hypohydration might be detrimental and might adversely effect outcome after surgery. Specifically overhydration results in significant ...

Phase N/A

Validation of Bedside Ultrasound to Predict Body Composition in Non- and Critically Ill Patients

The prospective study will include 200 patients and 50 critically ill patients, who had an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan including the L3 level for any clinical reason. Ultrasound scans of the anterior thighs and forearms will be taken after the CT scan within 48 hours. Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) ...

Impact of Protein Quantity Within the USDA Healthy Style Eating Pattern on Sleep

According to the National Sleep Foundation, 13% of U.S. adults were reported to sleep 6 hours or less per weeknight in 2001. Eight years later, the number increased to 20%. Also, the proportion of people experiencing a sleep problem (e.g. difficulties in initiating or maintaining sleep) several nights per week ...

The Effect of Neprilysin (LCZ696) on Exercise Tolerance in Patients With Heart Failure

Heart failure (HF) with reduced ventricular ejection fraction is a disease that affects around 5.7 million people in the United States, with a mortality rate of approximately 50% within 5 years. HF is characterized by an exacerbation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), which leads to an increase in sympathetic nerve ...
