Fat Cell Size in Insulin Resistance

Little is known about the turnover of adipose cells in the fat depots of normal animals and human subjects. However, microarray analysis of adipose cell gene expression in high risk insulin-resistant human subjects suggests that a reduced rate of adipose cell turnover is associated with enhanced adipose cell size and ...

The Food Intake Phenotype: Assessing Eating Behavior and Food Preferences as Risk Factors for Obesity

The prevalence of obesity in the United States has reached alarming proportions with 33% of adults over the age of 20 being overweight. In some populations, obesity is even more prevalent. Although there have been a number of advances in our understanding of the genetics of obesity, the environmental influences ...

Phase N/A

Nutritional Deficiencies in the Bariatric Patients

Although morbidly obese subjects have larger than regular caloric intake, there is evidence that they suffer from nutritional deficiencies at a higher rate than the general population, probably because they eat mostly "unhealthy food."

Phase N/A

Rajavithi Health Promotion Project (Population Base Cohort)

Metabolic Syndrome (hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity, cerebrovascular-cardiovascular disease) In Community Survey was performed in central Bangkok. Prospective Cohort and intensive educated intervention (health promotion program in specific high risk groups) were performed. The aim of the study is to identify high risk patients who can develop serious complications from metabolic ...

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 ...

Changes in Different Fat Compartments and Their Effect on Particular Manifestations of Metabolic Syndrome After Bariatric Procedures.

The metabolic risks associated with obesity are closely correlated with central (abdominal), rather than a peripheral (gluteofemoral) fat pattern. The amount of fat lost from each site may be independently regulated. Very scant information is found in the literature regarding the relative changes in different fat body compartments. Rapid and ...

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 ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Lifestyle Intervention in Obesity Effect on Diabetes

There will be done QOL-measures, blood- and urine analysis, weight, waist- and hip measurement, blood pressure and VO2-max measurement at baseline, after 6 months and after 12 months.

Phase N/A

Observational Study of Early Metabolic and Vascular Changes in Obesity

Obesity is dramatically increasing in countries with so called western Lifestyle, whereby juveniles are affected in particular. Atherosclerosis, a major consequence of obesity, starts early in life and results in cardiovascular disease and stroke, the main causes of mortality in industrialized countries. STYJOBS / EDECTA is a prospective, observational study ...
