SORT - AF Supervised Obesity Reduction Trial for AF Ablation Patients

Study protocol: The purpose of this study is to proof a professional care of overweight patients with symptomatic atrial fibrillation, as well as the treatment of the risk factors for atrial fibrillation, especially obstructive sleep apnea and hypertension. There is a 1:1 randomization. In the intervention group, patients are followed ...

Obesity Intervention "Obeldicks" for Obese Children Adolescents and Their Parents

The intervention program "Obeldicks" was developed for obese children aged 6 to 16 years. This intervention is gender- and age specific. The 12-months intervention is based on nutrition course, behaviour therapy and exercise therapy. The evaluation compromised quality of structure, process and results of the intervention. Primary outcome measure is ...

Evaluation of Patients With Endocrine-Related Conditions

This protocol is designed to allow inpatient and outpatient evaluation of adults with a variety of endocrine disorders for purposes of research and physician education in our accredited endocrinology training programs. The research-directed evaluations may include blood, saliva, or urine samples, or evaluation tissue that was routinely collected for clinical ...

Phase N/A

Physical and Behavioral Traits of Overweight and Obese Adults

Although complex metabolic, hormonal, and neural networks operate to control body weight, obesity is in most cases, the result of over-feeding and inactivity. In the majority of obese patients, patterns of fundamental behavior determine the success or failure of weight loss interventions. Behavior is controlled to some degree by conscious ...

Phase N/A

Diabetes and Heart Disease Risk in Blacks

This study is designed to investigate in blacks the relationship of risk for diabetes and heart disease from obesity plasma glucose and triglyceride concentrations and the triglyceride related risk factors of small dense low density lipoprotein (LDL), high density lipoprotein (HDL) and central obesity. The Framingham Study demonstrated that obesity ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Short-Term Beta-Cell Rest in Adolescents and Young Adults With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Background Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a condition characterized by insulin resistance and progressive failure of the insulin-secreting beta-cells. Previously considered a disease of adults, it is now becoming increasingly prevalent in children and adolescents. Patients with childhood onset T2DM are at very high risk for diabetes-related morbidity and ...

The participants will be randomized to receiving skin closure with subcuticular sutures or surgical staples if they undergo cesarean section. Either technique is currently standard of care. ...

Phase N/A

Etiological Factors of Obesity-Associated Hyperandrogenemia in Peripubertal Girls

A number of pathophysiological mechanisms underlie the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Neuroendocrine abnormalities play a significant role in most women with PCOS, and PCOS is associated with relative resistance of the gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) pulse generator to negative feedback by progesterone and estradiol. This hypothalamic resistance to negative feedback ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Brown Adipose Tissue Activation on Insulin Sensitivity in Humans

Recent findings document the presence of active brown adipose tissue (BAT) in humans. Cold exposure via adrenergic stimulation activates BAT, which combusts significant amounts of blood glucose and free fatty acid (FFA) to produce heat. Animal studies suggest that BAT activation improves insulin sensitivity. However, the effect of cold-induced BAT ...
