Abdominal fat and hip fracture risk in the elderly: the Dubbo Osteoporosis Epidemiology Study. (1/459)

BACKGROUND: Fat mass, which is a major component of body weight, is directly related to bone mineral density and reduced fracture risk. It is not known whether abdominal fat is associated with hip fracture. The present study was designed to examine the association between abdominal fat and hip fracture in women and men aged 60+ years. METHODS: This was a nested case-control study with one fracture case being matched with two controls of the same age. In women 63 cases were matched with 126 controls, and in men 26 cases were matched with 52 controls. Hip fracture was confirmed by X-ray and personal interview. Other measurements included weight, height, body mass index (BMI), abdominal fat, and femoral neck bone density (FNBMD). Conditional logistic regression model was used to analyse data. RESULTS: The odds ratio of hip fracture risk associated with each 10% lower abdominal fat was 1.5 (95% CI, 1.1 to 2.1) in women and 1.2 (95% CI, 0.7 to 2.0) in men. However after adjusting for FNBMD or body weight, the abdominal fat-fracture association was no longer statistically significant. Similarly, body weight and BMI was each significantly associated with hip fracture risk (in women), but after taking with account the effect of FNBMD, the association become statistically non-significant. CONCLUSION: Lower abdominal fat was associated with an increased risk of hip fracture in elderly women, but the association was not independent of FNBMD or weight. The contribution of abdominal fat to hip fracture risk is likely to be modest.  (+info)

Inactivity, exercise, and visceral fat. STRRIDE: a randomized, controlled study of exercise intensity and amount. (2/459)

Despite the importance of randomized, dose-response studies for proper evaluation of effective clinical interventions, there have been no dose-response studies on the effects of exercise amount on abdominal obesity, a major risk factor for metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. One hundred seventy-five sedentary, overweight men and women with mild to moderate dyslipidemia were randomly assigned to participate for 6 mo in a control group or for approximately 8 mo in one of three exercise groups: 1) low amount, moderate intensity, equivalent to walking 12 miles/wk (19.2 km) at 40-55% of peak oxygen consumption; 2) low amount, vigorous intensity, equivalent to jogging 12 miles/wk at 65-80% of peak oxygen consumption; or 3) high amount, vigorous intensity, equivalent to jogging 20 miles/wk (32.0 km). Computed tomography scans were analyzed for abdominal fat. Controls gained visceral fat (8.6 +/- 17.2%; P = 0.001). The equivalent of 11 miles of exercise per week, at either intensity, prevented significant accumulation of visceral fat. The highest amount of exercise resulted in decreased visceral (-6.9 +/- 20.8%; P = 0.038) and subcutaneous (-7.0 +/- 10.8%; P < 0.001) abdominal fat. Significant gains in visceral fat over only 6 mo emphasize the high cost of continued inactivity. A modest exercise program, consistent with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control/American College of Sports Medicine (CDC/ACSM), prevented significant increases in visceral fat. Importantly, a modest increase over the CDC/ACSM exercise recommendations resulted in significant decreases in visceral, subcutaneous, and total abdominal fat without changes in caloric intake.  (+info)

Increased plasma adiponectin in response to pioglitazone does not result from increased gene expression. (3/459)

Plasma levels of adiponectin are lower in obese and insulin-resistant subjects compared with lean and insulin-sensitive ones. Thiazolidinediones increase plasma adiponectin levels in diabetic subjects, although the mechanism of this increased plasma adiponectin has not been well studied. In the present study, we compared the plasma levels and adipose tissue expression of adiponectin in subjects with normal (NGT) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and also studied the effects of metformin and pioglitazone on plasma and adipose tissue mRNA level of adiponectin in IGT subjects. IGT subjects had lower plasma adiponectin levels compared with NGT subjects, and similarly IGT subjects had lower adiponectin mRNA levels. In contrast, the increased plasma levels of adiponectin in response to pioglitazone were not associated with increased adiponectin expression in adipose tissue. Metformin did not cause any change in plasma or expression levels of adiponectin. Other adipokines were examined, and both pioglitazone and metformin decreased plasma levels of resistin in IGT subjects, and pioglitazone (but not metformin) decreased plasma levels of leptin. These data suggest that pioglitazone increases plasma adiponectin levels by posttranscriptional regulation in contrast to transcriptional regulation of adiponectin in relation to insulin sensitivity in NGT vs. IGT subjects.  (+info)

Rats with steroid-induced polycystic ovaries develop hypertension and increased sympathetic nervous system activity. (4/459)

BACKGROUND: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine and metabolic disorder associated with ovulatory dysfunction, abdominal obesity, hyperandrogenism, hypertension, and insulin resistance. METHODS: Our objectives in this study were (1) to estimate sympathetic-adrenal medullary (SAM) activity by measuring mean systolic blood pressure (MSAP) in rats with estradiol valerate (EV)-induced PCO; (2) to estimate alpha1a and alpha2a adrenoceptor expression in a brain area thought to mediate central effects on MSAP regulation and in the adrenal medulla; (3) to assess hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis regulation by measuring adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and corticosterone (CORT) levels in response to novel-environment stress; and (4) to measure abdominal obesity, sex steroids, and insulin sensitivity. RESULTS: The PCO rats had significantly higher MSAP than controls, higher levels of alpha1a adrenoceptor mRNA in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN), and lower levels of alpha2a adrenoceptor mRNA in the PVN and adrenal medulla. After exposure to stress, PCO rats had higher ACTH and CORT levels. Plasma testosterone concentrations were lower in PCO rats, and no differences in insulin sensitivity or in the weight of intraabdominal fat depots were found. CONCLUSION: Thus, rats with EV-induced PCO develop hypertension and increased sympathetic and HPA-axis activity without reduced insulin sensitivity, obesity, or hyperandrogenism. These findings may have implications for mechanisms underlying hypertension in PCOS.  (+info)

High prevalence of metabolic syndrome among men in Okinawa. (5/459)

We determined the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) in Okinawa from cross-sectional results of an annual physical checkup. We also calculated the homeostasis model assessment ratio (HOMA-R) as an index of insulin resistance, and examined the relationship between HOMA-R and MS. We studied 3,839 men (mean age 49.2 years) and 3,146 women (mean age 50.0 years), a total of 6,985 people aged from 30 to 79 years, who underwent an annual physical checkup in our hospital between May 2003 and March 2004. The diagnosis of MS was based on the criteria in the Third Report of the National Cholesterol Education Program Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults (Adult Treatment Panel III: ATP III). Abdominal circumference was assessed in accordance with the diagnostic criteria of the Japan Society for the Study of Obesity. The prevalence of MS was 30.2% in men and 10.3% in women. Mean HOMA-R significantly increased with an increase in the number of ATP III risk factors. Logistic regression analysis with the independent variables of sex, age, and HOMA-R gave an odds ratio of MS of 3.6 for men, 1.4 for a 10-year age increment, and 2.0 for an elevation of HOMA-R above 1.0.  (+info)

Short-term predictors of abdominal obesity in children. (6/459)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to examine the short-term tracking of abdominal adiposity in children. METHODS: A total of 918 children (477 boys) aged 6-12 years at baseline were followed-up for 2 years. Central obesity was assessed by waist circumference (WaistC), whereas body fat distribution by waist-to-hip ratio. Maturity was assessed by the Khamis-Roche method. Parental fatness and children's cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) were also evaluated. Multiple and logistic regressions were employed to identify the predictors of BMI and WaistC. RESULTS: Tracking of body fatness and body fat distribution was high (r = 0.69-0.86, P < 0.01). More boys remained obese than girls (P < 0.05), whereas a greater percentage of boys moved to a higher quartile of WaistC after the 2-year follow-up (22.0 vs 14.1%, P < 0.01). Sex, child's maturity and WaistC at baseline, CRF, and maternal BMI explained 76% of the variability in BMI and WaistC at the follow-up (n = 290). Children with high WaistC at baseline and low CRF presented 1.9- and 4.3-fold increased risk of remaining in the upper quartile of WaistC at the follow-up (P < 0.01; n = 552). CONCLUSION: Youth with increased WaistC at baseline and low CRF presented an increased chance of maintaining central obesity at the follow-up. More boys than girls moved into a higher quartile of abdominal obesity during the 2-year follow-up period and this should be taken into account in designing programmes for childhood obesity.  (+info)

Effect of leptin on insulin resistance of muscle--direct or indirect? (7/459)

We examined the effect of leptin on the insulin resistance in skeletal muscles by measuring glucose transport. Male Wistar rats were fed rat chow or high-fat diets for 30 days. Before sacrifice, rats fed high-fat diet were subcutaneously injected with leptin (1 mg/kg b.w.) for 3 days. The glucose transport in epitrochlearis and soleus muscles did not differ in the experimental groups under basal conditions, however these values decreased significantly in the rats fed high-fat diet under insulin stimulation (p<0.01). Leptin treatment recovered the decreased glucose transport in epitrochlearis (p<0.05) and soleus muscles (p=0.08). Triglyceride concentrations in soleus muscles were increased significantly in the rats fed high-fat diet as compared to rats fed chow diet (p<0.01), and were decreased significantly by leptin treatment (p<0.01). The glucose transport was measured under basal conditions and after 60 microU/ml of insulin treatment with or without 50 ng/ml of leptin. Leptin had no direct stimulatory effect on glucose transport under both basal and insulin-stimulated conditions in vitro. These results demonstrate that leptin injection to rats fed high-fat diet recovered impaired insulin responsiveness of skeletal muscles and muscle triglyceride concentrations. However, there was no direct stimulatory effect of leptin on insulin sensitivity of skeletal muscles in vitro.  (+info)

Administration of recombinant human GHRH-1,44-amide for 3 months reduces abdominal visceral fat mass and increases physical performance measures in postmenopausal women. (8/459)

OBJECTIVE: A recent study indicated that twice-daily s.c. administration of a high dose of recombinant human GHRH-1,44-amide (GHRH) for 90 days can alter body composition in healthy older men. No data establish whether this is also true in postmenopausal women. The present study tests the hypothesis that the same GHRH regimen applied in women will: (i) elevate both IGF-I and GH concentrations; and (ii) reduce abdominal visceral fat mass, augment total body water and enhance functional performance. DESIGN: Ten postmenopausal volunteers underwent baseline study and then received 1 mg GHRH twice daily s.c. for 3 months. METHODS: Statistical comparisons were made with pre-intervention baseline data. RESULTS: GHRH administration stimulated: (i) a mean 98 +/- 14% elevation of overnight GH concentrations after administration of the peptide for 1 and 3 months (P < 0.005); (ii) a sustained 71 +/- 3.5% rise in IGF-I concentrations over the interval from 2 weeks to 3 months (P < 0.0012); (iii) a 16 +/- 7% reduction in abdominal visceral fat mass (P = 0.029) and a 14 +/- 5% increase in tri-tiated water space (P < 0.025); (iv) an abbreviation of the times required to walk 30 m (P = 0.015) and ascend two flights of stairs (P = 0.003). Most (70%) subjects experienced local skin reactivity. There were no systemic adverse events. CONCLUSIONS: A 3-month regimen of GHRH supplementation in postmenopausal women can stimulate GH and IGF-I production, reduce abdominal visceral fat and improve selected measures of physical performance, while inducing significant local skin reactivity.  (+info)

The purpose of this study is to test the effects of a drug, eplerenone, along with lifestyle modification to affect sugar metabolism, body fat distribution, and cardiovascular health in HIV-infected individuals. In non-HIV-infected individuals, recent data has shown that aldosterone, a hormone that regulates salt and water balance, is increased in association with increased belly fat and decreased insulin sensitivity. In HIV-infected individuals, aldosterone appears to be higher in individuals with increased belly fat, and increased aldosterone appears to be strongly associated with impaired sugar metabolism. In this study, the investigators will test the effects of eplerenone, which is a medication that blocks the actions of aldosterone, along with lifestyle modification. The investigators hypothesize that eplerenone may improve sugar metabolism, improve markers of cardiovascular health, and reduce fat accumulation in liver and muscle ...
New research from Uppsala University shows that saturated fat builds more fat and less muscle than polyunsaturated fat. This is the first study on humans to show that the fat composition of food not only influences cholesterol levels in the blood and the risk of cardiovascular disease but also determines where the fat will be stored in the body. The findings have recently been published in the American journal Diabetes.
A study involving 39 young adult men and women of normal weight, who ate 750 extra calories in the form of muffins every day for seven weeks, found that those whose muffins were made with palm oil built significantly more fat and less muscle than those whose muffins were made with sunflower oil. Moreover, the palm oil group developed the fat in more dangerous places - in the liver and abdomen. The groups gained the same amount of weight.. http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2014-02/uu-afa022414.php. ...
Caponization results in reduced androgen levels, which leads to abdominal fat accumulation in capons. In this study, we sought to understand the molecular mechanisms behind this fat accumulation. Abdominal fat (AF) content increased significantly (P | 0.05) and serum and AF testosterone levels decreased significantly (P | 0.05 or P | 0.01) after caponization. In AF tissue, 90 differentially expressed genes related to lipid metabolism were screened by gene expression profiling in caponized and sham-treated chickens. Among these, six representative genes were significantly up-regulated (APOA1, SCD, FABP7, RXRG, and FADS2) or down-regulated (FABP3) (P | 0.05 or P | 0.01) and were strongly associated with the PPAR pathway. In addition, cell junction pathways were also enriched. In vitro, Fat content was significantly lower in cells treated with testosterone compared with control cells (P | 0.01), and mRNA levels of RXRG, FABP7, and FABP3 changed accordingly, confirming the effect of testosterone on fat

A study published in Clinical Nutrition by Labayen et al. has investigated the role played by dietary fat in the build-up of abdominal fat in adolescents. Previous studies have suggested that high intensity exercise might prevent the accumulation of fat and subsequently obesity, noting that physical activity increases fat oxidation. The scientists recruited a sub-sample of 224 Spanish adolescents who participated in the HELENA- CSS, an EU funded project involving adolescents from 10 European cities. To calculate energy and nutrient intake the participants reported 24 h dietary recall on two non-consecutive days within a period of 2 weeks. Body weight, height and BMI were measured and physical activity was objectively assessed by accelerometry. Labayen et al report that they found an association between the percentages of energy derived from fat intake and abdominal fat deposition, noting that this relationship was independent of physical activity, moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) ...
The prevalence of abdominal obesity in Quebec is of increasing concern: it has doubled since 1990, from 21 to 48 percent for women and 14 to 32 percent for men.
A small 12-week clinical trial involving 52 overweight, middle-aged adults with high total and LDL cholesterol has found that those who ate a daily snack of almonds significantly improved a number of cardiovascular risk factors compared to those who ate a banana muffin.. Specifically, they decreased total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol non-HDL-cholesterol and remnant lipoproteins, and reduced abdominal fat mass, waist circumference and leg fat mass (not total weight or fat mass - this is about distribution).. The muffin and the 1.5 oz (42g) of whole natural almonds had the same number of calories. Otherwise, the participants ate the same balanced diet. Participants followed each diet for six weeks, with a two-week washout period in between. Adherence to the diets was 85%.. http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2015-01/pn-nrs010615.php.

Supplementation with conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) reduced body fat mass particularly in the legs, and had positive effects on lean body mass, says a new clinical trial.. Writing in this months British Journal of Nutrition, researchers from Norway, led by Jean-Michel Gaullier from Link Medical Research AS, report that overweight and obese subjects randomly supplemented to receive a daily dose of Lipid Nutritions Clarinol CLA ingredient experienced an average loss of 3.4 percent in body fat mass, compared to placebo.. The current study is the first to report that the reduction of body fat mass occurred mostly in the legs and that CLA had a tendency to decrease the amount of abdominal fat mass, which is in line with the observed significant decrease in the waist-hip ratio, wrote Gaullier.. The new study, supported by Lipid Nutrition who also provided the Clarinol supplement, recruited 118 overweight and obese men and women (average age 47.3, BMI 28-32 kg per sq.m) and assigned them to receive ...
Obesity is a global epidemic, which is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and metabolic abnormalities. It is measured by body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), waist-hip ratio (WHR), body fat (BF) distribution and abdominal fat mass, each having its own merits and limitations. Variability in body composition between ethnic groups in South-Asians is significant and may not be truly reflected by BMI alone, which may result in misclassification. This study therefore, aims to determine the frequency of obesity, body fat composition and distribution, in a high risk population of an urban slum of Karachi, Pakistan. This survey included 451 participants selected by systematic sampling who were administered pre-tested questionnaires on socio-demographics, diet and physical activity. Chi-square was used to determine the association between categorical variables and multiple linear regression was used for quantitative variables. A P value of less than 0.05 was considered significant. Classified
of physical activity, smoking and dietary habits.. Waist Circumference. Waist circumference is another widely used measurement to determine abdominal fat content. An excess of abdominal fat, when out of proportion to total body fat, is considered a predictor of risk factors related to obesity. Men with a waist measurement exceeding 40 inches are considered at risk. Women are at risk with a waist measurement of 35 inches or greater.. References:. 1.

L1-L4 and L4-L5 abdominal fat mass determinations obtained by DXA were associated with the development of metabolic syndrome in all regression models tested, showing an increasing gradient from the lowest to highest quintile.. With respect to the percentage of L1-L4 fat mass, and more specifically, in models adjusted for age, women who were in the highest quintile presented a risk of developing metabolic syndrome that was 7.18 times higher (95% CI = 5.66-9.28) than women in the lowest quintile. In models adjusted for BMI, this risk was attenuated. Thus, those women who were in the highest quintile showed a risk of metabolic syndrome, which was 3.92 times higher (95% CI = 2.88-5.16) than those who were in the lowest quintile.. Similar results were obtained for L4-L5 fat mass. In models adjusted for age, the risk for women in the highest quintile was 6.92 times higher than for those in the lowest quintile (95% CI = 5.35-8.76). Meanwhile, in models adjusted for BMI, the risk for women in the ...
We found a strong independent relationship between both visceral and subcutaneous adiposity with insulin resistance. Increased levels of fat in these depots were significantly associated with lower SI, the impact of which was enhanced by a significant inverse interaction term. Thus, high levels of fat in both depots lead to substantial insulin resistance. Moreover, the fat measures explained over one-quarter of the model variance (27 of 43.5%), with VAT being a more potent predictor than SAT. The effects were similar across ethnic groups and sex. However, in the obese, there was no statistical evidence of an interaction between VAT and SAT. The relationship between abdominal fat and insulin secretion was quite different: subcutaneous, but not visceral, adiposity was an important correlate of AIR. In this population, age, not fat, explained the greatest proportion of the variance in AIR. When SI is included in the AIR model, both SAT and VAT (inverse) are significant correlates. Finally, VAT ...

At Shen Therapies, we have long known the health implications of excess abdominal fats on everything from minor health complaints, right through to decreasing your fertility. Excess abdominal fats lead to inflammatory diseases processes in the body and they also lead to excess bad hormones and we are now calling these Obestrogens. This is why health authorities are worried about the increasing weights and abdominal fats in adults and in children, because it is quite literally leading them to early graves.. In April 2016, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reevaluated the impact of weight control through modifiable dietary and lifestyle risk factors on lowering cancer risk. They defined overweight and obesity as abnormal or excessive body fat accumulation negatively affecting health.. Obesity affected approximately 640 million adults worldwide in 2014, a 6-fold increase from 1975, and 110 million youth in 2013, doubled since 1980. Deaths caused by overweight and obesity ...

Background: Abdominal fat distributions are reportedly strongly associated with metabolic risks in type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, research on fat distribution in adolescents with type 2 diabetes mellitus has been limited.. Aim: To investigate fat distribution characteristics in adolescents with type 2 diabetes mellitus for comparison to those with simple obesity in Japan.. Design/Methods: Sixty-one adolescents 10 to 15 years of age with simple obesity or type 2 diabetes mellitus, who visited our outpatient clinics between 2002 and 2018, were enrolled in this study with ethics approval. Simple obesity was defined as a BMI ≥95%ile without. Serum lipids, ALT and HbA1c were measured without fasting. Visceral fat area (VFA) and subcutaneous fat area (SFA) were investigated using umbilical level CT scans. Subjects were classified into 2 subgroups: simple obesity group (n=38) or the type 2 diabetes mellitus group (n=23).. Results: Comparisons between the 2 groups are shown in Table 1. VFA and the ...
Adipose tissue was obtained from six women undergoing liposuction twice at 6-mo intervals. Samples obtained bilaterally from abdomen, inner thigh, and outer thigh had fatty acids quantified by gas chromatography. There were no important differences between sides or over time. The saturates 14:0, 16:0, 18:0, and 20:0 were higher in abdominal adipose than in outer thigh (P < 0.002 for all); 16:1 and 18:1 omega 9 were lower in abdomen vs outer thigh (P < 0.01), whereas 18:1 omega 7 and 20:1 omega 9 were unchanged. Polyunsaturates 18:2 omega 6, 20:3 omega 6, and 20:4 omega 6 were higher in outer thigh than in abdomen (P < 0.06), and inner thigh values were intermediate. These changes in fatty acid composition resulted in lower mean triglyceride melting points from abdomen to inner thigh to outer thigh, and suggest that temperature may influence the selection process determining the variation in adipose fatty acid composition with anatomical location. Because the site-specific differences included ...
Research continues to reveal that consuming grapefruit benefits weight loss in a a major way.† The key may be an enzyme called AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), which appears to get activated by an organic compound in grapefruit called nootkatone. When AMPK gets activated, it encourages the bodys energy-producing processes, like glucose uptake, for example, which helps boost metabolism. That, in turn, can encourage weight loss. AMPK is generally activated during exercise to help muscles use stored sugar and fat for energy.. An animal study published in the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism demonstrated how long-term intake of nootkatone significantly reduced high-fat and high-sucrose diet-induced body weight gain, abdominal fat accumulation, and the development of hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, and hyperleptinemia. The study concluded that not only can grapefruits nootkatone likely help to prevent obesity, but it can also improve overall physical ...

Mouse study provides important clue as to how females stay healthier than males, even as body fat increases. October 23, 2018. Science Daily/York University. In a new study, researchers found that the abdominal fat on female mice had more blood vessels than the fat on male mice, and that this protected the health of the female mice as they gained fat from eating a high-fat diet.. Published today in Frontiers in Physiology -- Vascular Physiology, the research focuses on the differences between abdominal fat in obese male and female mice. A team of researchers under the direction of Professor Tara Haas found that the abdominal fat on female mice had more blood vessels than the fat on male mice, and that this protected the health of the female mice as they gained fat from eating a high-fat diet.. Males and females develop fat tissue differently and also differ in susceptibility to cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and diabetes. However, the underlying biology behind why fat tissue in ...
Rationale: A high waist circumference is associated with an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and CVD in patients with a BMI in a range between 25 and 34.9 kg/m2 (82). Monitoring changes in waist circumference over time may be helpful, in addition to measuring BMI, since it can provide an estimate of increased abdominal fat even in the absence of a change in BMI. Furthermore, in obese patients with metabolic complications, changes in waist circumference are useful predictors of changes in CVD risk factors (537). There are ethnic and age-related differences in body fat distribution that modify the predictive validity of waist circumference as a surrogate for abdominal fat (526). These variations may partly explain differences between ethnic or age groups in the power of waist circumference or waist-to-hip (WHR) ratio to predict disease risks (429, 543). In some populations, waist circumference is a better indicator of relative disease risk than is BMI: examples ...
Recently, the use of waist circumference (WC) has been substituting the BMI as a measure of obesity and health. Waist circumference has been found to strongly correlate with adverse cardio-vascular events or diseases such as diabetes. This correlation between waist circumference and bad health is stronger than that of BMI.. Waist circumference correlates with bad health stronger than BMI does. The logic behind this shift in health policy makers attitude lies in the fact that not all fat is the same. More and more scientific data is coming in, showing that fatty tissue is not just a storage for calories but rather a living, functioning organ that is capable of communicating with the rest of the body.. It turns out that there are two main fat distributions that can be identified in people: Abdominal fat (pot belly or apple shaped or male type) and Hip fat (pear fat or female type). These pictures might clear things up a bit more:. ...
Aim: To examine the relationship between birth weight (BW) and abdominal adiposity in adolescents.. Research Design and Methods: A total of 284 adolescents (49.3% females) aged 14.9±1.2 years were included in the study. BW and gestational age were obtained from parental records. Abdominal adiposity (in three regions: R1, R2, and R3), trunk and total body fat mass (FM) were measured by DXA. Regional FM indexes (FMI=FM/height2) were thereafter calculated (Trunk FMI and abdominal FMI R1, R2, and R3).. Results: BW was negatively associated with abdominal FMI R1, R2 and R3 independently of total FM, gestational age, gender, breastfeeding duration, pubertal stage, physical activity and socioeconomic status (all P,0.01).. Conclusions: Our study shows an inverse association between BW and abdominal adiposity in adolescents, independently of total FM and other potential confounders. These findings suggest that fetal nutrition, as reflected by BW, may have a programming effect on abdominal adiposity ...

Ah, done with knockout mice, not with an actual ACE inhibitor. Thats always questionable, because you dont know what other developmental stages have been affected by the gene knockout that could be responsible for the reduced fat (and, really, its not quite correct to say it reduces body fat, since it sounds like those mice never actually put on that fat). Thats a different scenario than reducing fat in someone who already is overweight. Im not quite sure that abdominal fat in mice translates well to abdominal fat in people either ...
There is a saying about what matters in real estate: location, location, location. The same holds true for your personal real estate. When you look in a mirror, where do you see extra pounds?. Weighing too much is harmful, but the location of those extra pounds can worsen the risk. Simply put, extra weight around your middle puts you at greater risk for heart disease.. For both men and women, abdominal fat carries the greatest health risk, says Dr. James M. Rippe, associate professor of medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine and author of 26 health and fitness books, including The Healthy Heart for Dummies. He says the so-called apple-shaped body is more dangerous because abdominal fat cells cause greater metabolic changes. Those changes can include insulin resistance (a forerunner of diabetes) and a faster heartbeat.. The body mass index (BMI) has become the standard way to learn the healthy weight for your height. In general, BMI can accurately determine if you are of normal weight, ...
Walking is an excellent exercise for burning calories and for improving cardiovascular fitness.

The biggest reason that occasional fasting functions for weight loss are it allows you to consume fewer unhealthy calories.. The many various methods entail skipping foods during the fasting intervals. Unless you repay when you eat a lot more throughout the consuming ranges, you will then be ingesting a lot fewer energy.. As outlined by a recent 2014 review study, occasional fasting can cause significant fat loss. With this review, occasional fasting discovered to lessen weight by 3-8Per cent over 3-24 days.. When evaluating the rate of weight loss, individuals misplaced about .55 lbs (.25 kg) a week with occasional fasting, but 1.65 kilos (.75 kilograms) weekly with different-time fasting.. Individuals also shed 4-7Percent in their midsection circumference, suggesting they shed abdominal fat.. These outcomes are very impressive, and so they do show that irregular fasting can be quite a helpful weight-loss assist.. All that said, the key benefits of sporadic fasting go way beyond just fat loss. ...

A dislocated joint usually can be successfully reduced into its normal position only by a trained medical professional. Trying to reduce a joint without any training could substantially worsen the injury.[15] X-rays are usually taken to confirm a diagnosis and detect any fractures which may also have occurred at the time of dislocation. A dislocation is easily seen on an X-ray.[16] Once a diagnosis is confirmed, the joint is usually manipulated back into position. This can be a very painful process, therefore this is typically done either in the emergency department under sedation or in an operating room under a general anaesthetic.[17] It is important the joint is reduced as soon as possible, as in the state of dislocation, the blood supply to the joint (or distal anatomy) may be compromised. This is especially true in the case of a dislocated ankle, due to the anatomy of the blood supply to the foot.[18] Shoulder injuries can also be surgically stabilized, depending on the severity, using ...

PTSD symptoms may result when a traumatic event causes an over-reactive adrenaline response, which creates deep neurological patterns in the brain. These patterns can persist long after the event that triggered the fear, making an individual hyper-responsive to future fearful situations.[20][81] During traumatic experiences the high levels of stress hormones secreted suppress hypothalamic activity that may be a major factor toward the development of PTSD.[82] PTSD causes biochemical changes in the brain and body, that differ from other psychiatric disorders such as major depression. Individuals diagnosed with PTSD respond more strongly to a dexamethasone suppression test than individuals diagnosed with clinical depression.[83][84] Most people with PTSD show a low secretion of cortisol and high secretion of catecholamines in urine,[85] with a norepinephrine/cortisol ratio consequently higher than comparable non-diagnosed individuals.[86] This is in contrast to the normative fight-or-flight ...
