Growth and Body Composition in Preterm Infants

OBJECTIVES GENERAL Evaluate the growth and body composition of VLBW infants upon reaching the corresponding term gestational age (GA) and weight. SPECIFIC Evaluate the longitudinal growth and body composition of VLBW infants from the first week of life and at the corresponding term GA and weight. Relate the weight loss ...

Body Composition and Adipose Tissue in HIV

HIV lipodystrophy is increasingly recognized as a common and clinically significant long-term sequelae of HIV treatment. In the HIV lipodystrophy lipohypertrophy phenotype, visceral adipose tissue (VAT) is increased and this is associated with reduced growth hormone (GH) secretion. Mounting evidence also links this phenotype with dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, subclinical atherosclerosis ...


Dietary Essential Fatty Acid Regulation of Omega-3 HUFA Metabolism; Satiety and Body Composition

Objective To evaluate the effects of lowering the dietary nutrient linoleic acid (LA) as a controlled variable on: 1) tissue accretion of omega-6 and omega-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA); 2) bioactive endocannabinoids derived from the omega-6 HUFA arachidonic acid (AA); 3) insulin sensitivity; 4) satiety and hunger; and 5) ...

Exercise and Mediterranean Diet on Body Composition Disease Activity and Inflammatory Markers in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation, joint pain, destruction of the synovial membranes and metabolic alterations due mainly by the liberation of tumor necrosis factor alpha and interleukin-1 beta mainly and leading to changes in body composition as rheumatoid cachexia, which is characterized by involuntary ...

Does Dairy Benefit Bone & Body Composition in Overweight Girls Undergoing a Weight Management Program?

Three groups (25 girls/group) will participate in this study. Participants must be low dairy consumers (0-1 svgs/d) and do little to no structured physical activity at study entry. Each participant will be assigned to a group; one of two experimental groups or a control group. The two intervention groups will ...

Influence of Elevated Baseline Serum Creatinine and Body Composition on Acute Kidney Injury in Cardiac Surgery

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is an infrequent but major and well - recognized complication of cardiac surgery (1, 2). Its incidence ranges from 1 to 30% (3). Numerous pre-, intra-, and postoperative factors have been associated with the development of AKI after cardiac surgery (3-19). Most commonly used definitions are ...

Body Composition and Lipid Metabolism at Rest and During Exercise: A Cross-Sectional and Prospective Analysis.

Metabolic flexibility broadly refers to the ability to utilize the right fuel source for energy (primarily either carbohydrate or fat) at the right time (Kelley and Mandarino, 2000). This was first conceptualised at the level of skeletal muscle (Kelley and Mandarino, 1990; Andres et al., 1956). A main tenant originally ...

Comparing Effects of Liraglutide and Bariatric Surgery on Weight Loss Liver Function Body Composition Insulin Resistance Endothelial Function and Biomarkers of Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) in Obese Asian Adults

The morbidity and mortality from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), the most common liver disease worldwide, are rapidly increasing as a result of the global explosion in obesity, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region where there will be an estimated 300 million obese people by 20302. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a subset ...


Ultra Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA): Accurate and Precise Quantitative Multi-compartment Body Composition

This is a cross-sectional comparative technology study using a sample of convenience stratified by age, sex, and BMI. Following consent, each participant will undergo: 6 DXA whole body scans. The primary measure is bone mineral mass and body volume. DXA body volume is measured using equations from previous work that ...
