Effects of Intake of a Polysaccharides Mix on Metabolism Hormones and Satiety in Obese Children.

INTRODUCTION The postprandial phase has a fundamental role in metabolic regulation. In fact, being exposed to high levels of substrates such as glucose and fatty acids after food intake tends to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. This is even more relevant in reference to the amount of hours in ...


Walnuts to Achieve Lasting NUTrition to Prevent Diabetes

Prediabetes is a precursor of type 2 diabetes and an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and currently affects one-quarter of the population of the United States. Individuals of overweight or obese BMI are at particular high risk for incident diabetes. A major modifiable risk factor for type 2 diabetes ...


Cooking for Health Optimization With Patients

Cooking for Health Optimization with Patients (CHOP) is the first known multi-site prospective cohort study with a nested Bayesian adaptive randomized trial in the preventive cardiology field of culinary medicine. It is also the first known longitudinal study to assess the impact of hands-on cooking and nutrition education on patient ...


Use of Nutrigenomic Models for the Personalized Treatment With Medical Foods in Obese People

NutriGen project specific aim 1. Establishing a genetic signature model, involved in the donation of methyl groups and unsaturated omega-6/3 fatty acids metabolism, with a high predictive value for classification of dyslipidemia and insulin resistance in obese subjects. Establishing a genetic signature model in obese adults with dyslipidemia. Establishing a ...


Improving Primary Care to Prevent Childhood Obesity

Overweight in the preschool age group is prevalent, increasing, and of consequence. During the last 30 years in the U.S., the prevalence of overweight among youth has dramatically increased. Overweight in young children is associated with later overweight, with childhood conditions such as hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and type II diabetes, and ...


Vitamin K and Glucose Metabolism in Children at Risk for Diabetes (Vita-K 'n' Kids Study)

The undercarboxylated fractions of the two vitamin K-dependent proteins osteocalcin and matrix Gla protein have been shown to play key roles in type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (at least in mouse models). Clinical trials are needed to isolate the effects of vitamin K manipulation on carboxylation of these two ...


Vitamin K and Glucose Metabolism in Adults at Risk for Diabetes (Vita-K 'n' Adults Study)

Given that glutamate carboxylation or decarboxylation is key to the metabolic role of osteocalcin (at least in mouse models) and that carboxylation is vitamin K dependent, it is critical to isolate the effect of vitamin K manipulation on carboxylation of osteocalcin and its subsequent effect on glucose metabolism in clinical ...


Racial Differences in Vagal Control of Glucose Homeostasis

Obesity has a greater detrimental impact on the health of African American women (AAW) than on any other racial or gender group. Nearly 80% of AAW are overweight or obese. Reduced insulin sensitivity is more prevalent among AAW as compared to white women and men of both races. This condition ...


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 ...


Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for the Treatment of Obesity

This is a randomized controlled pilot study to assess the microbiological and clinical impacts of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) in patients with obesity. The investigators will prospectively enroll 20 adult patients who are obese (Body Mass Index of 35kg/m2 or higher) after providing written informed consent. The study participants will ...
