Impact of Protein Quantity Within the USDA Healthy Style Eating Pattern on Sleep

According to the National Sleep Foundation, 13% of U.S. adults were reported to sleep 6 hours or less per weeknight in 2001. Eight years later, the number increased to 20%. Also, the proportion of people experiencing a sleep problem (e.g. difficulties in initiating or maintaining sleep) several nights per week ...

Clinical Evaluation Of An X-Ray Bone Densitometer:Use Of DXA Technology For Precise Assessment Of Human Body Composition

The secondary objectives of this study are the assessment of the consistency of body composition measurements at local level (arms, trunk, legs) between the Stratos and Hologic 4500 A, Monitoring the evolution of body composition in patients receiving at least two evaluations of DXA Hologic QDR 4500A on: patients treated ...

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 Analysis in Cirrhotic Undergoing Paracentesis

Ascites is a frequent complication of liver cirrhosis, initial treatment consists on diuretics intake, however, as the disease progresses this complication becomes more severe, consequently other therapeutic options are used. Paracentesis is indicated when severe ascites is present and it should be accompanied by albumin infusion. Nutritional status is generally ...

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 ...

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 ...

Measurement of Body Composition by Air Displacement Plethysmography in Pediatric Intestinal Failure Patients

Infants and children with intestinal failure (IF) require prolonged periods of parenteral nutrition (PN) for sustenance and growth until intestinal adaptation allows adequate enteral intake. Lean body mass (or muscle mass) preservation and accrual is an important goal during this phase of nutritional rehabilitation. However, lean body mass is not ...
