Effect of Pyridoxamine Supplementation on Vascular Function and Insulin Sensitivity

A growing body of evidence demonstrates that increased adipose mass, especially visceral adipose tissue, contributes directly towards an increase in systemic inflammation, (micro-)vascular dysfunction and the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD), insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Advanced glycation/lipoxidation endproducts (AGEs/ALEs) are a heterogeneous family of unavoidable by-products, which are ...

Phase N/A

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Glucose Metabolism

Many adults who are overweight have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) which disrupts sleep and makes it difficult to breath during the night. OSA increases the risk for a person to become insulin resistant and diabetic. It is not known why OSA causes this problem, i.e., whether it is disrupted sleep ...

Phase N/A

Role of Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) on Inflammation and Lipids

This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, crossover study of the effects of EPA and DHA on inflammation and lipid metabolism in 24 men and women with metabolic syndrome. The study will characterize the effects of EPA alone and DHA alone, relative to each other and to placebo, on plasma biomarkers ...

Phase N/A

Optimal Timing of Physical Activity in Cancer Treatment

The number of long-term cancer survivors is growing. As a result, treatment-related morbidity such as cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, functional decline and fatigue - is impacting quality of life and impairing survival. Metabolic syndrome in the general population is currently treated with lifestyle advice to increase physical activity (PA) and ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Correction of Metabolic Acidosis in CKD on Intrarenal RAS Activity

In chronic kidney disease (CKD), as glomerular filtration rate decreases, excretion of hydrogen ions fails, leading to progressive metabolic acidosis (arterial pH < 7.35 and a serum bicarbonate concentration < 22 meq/L). Metabolic acidosis enhances further progression of CKD. It is known that the intrarenal renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is stimulated ...

Phase N/A

Complex Effects of Dietary Manipulation on Metabolic Function Inflammation and Health

Obesity is associated with a constellation of cardiometabolic abnormalities (including insulin resistance, elevated blood pressure and dyslipidemia) that are risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. However, not all people experience the typical "complications" associated with obesity. Approximately 25% of obese people are protected from the adverse metabolic effects of ...

Phase N/A

Vestibular Stimulation to Trigger Adipose Loss Clinical Trial

There is a growing realization that obesity can, in many ways, be viewed as a neurological disease triggered by lifestyle factors. There is clear evidence that the arcuate nucleus in the hypothalamus regulates a "set-point" for how much fat the body should have. It does so by altering appetite and ...

Phase N/A

Nicotinamide Riboside and Metabolic Health

This study will investigate the effects of 6 week Nicotinamide Riboside supplementation (1000 mg/day) on metabolic health in healthy (pre)obese humans. The primary objective will be hepatic and whole body insulin sensitivity. Secondary objectives, to provide information about the underlying mechanism, will be muscle mitochondrial function, brown fat activity, ectopic ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Brisk Walking and Regular Intensity Exercise Interventions on Glycemic Control

Sedentary young adults (18-39 years) will be recruited from the community and surrounding areas of Plymouth, NH. In order to be included in the study sample, participants must meet the following criteria: a BMI > 30 and who do not participate in regular physical activity. Participants will be free of ...

Phase N/A

Vitamin K to Slow Progression of Dyslipidemia and Diabetes Risk (Vita-K 'n' Kids Study II)

Animal studies have found that vitamin K-dependent proteins matrix Gla protein and osteocalcin beneficially influence lipid and glucose metabolism, respectively. However, this concept has not been tested in humans at risk for dyslipidemia and diabetes risk. Vitamin K supplementation presents an opportunity to test the hypothesized link between the vitamin ...
