Quantitative aspects in the assessment of liver injury. (1/12738)

Liver function data are usually difficult to use in their original form when one wishes to compare the hepatotoxic properties of several chemical substances. However, procedures are available for the conversion of liver function data into quantal responses. These permit the elaboration of dose-response lines for the substances in question, the calculation of median effective doses and the statistical analysis of differences in liver-damaging potency. These same procedures can be utilized for estimating the relative hazard involved if one compares the liver-damaging potency to the median effective dose for some other pharmacologie parameter. Alterations in hepatic triglycerides, lipid peroxidation, and the activities of various hepatic enzymes can also be quantitiated in a dose-related manner. This permits the selection of equitoxic doses required for certain comparative studies and the selection of doses in chemical interaction studies. The quantitative problems involved in low-frequency adverse reactions and the difficulty these present in the detection of liver injury in laboratory animals are discussed.  (+info)

Serum triglyceride: a possible risk factor for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. (2/12738)

BACKGROUND: We aimed to determine the relationship between ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and serum concentrations of lipids and apolipoproteins. METHODS: A cohort of 21 520 men, aged 35-64 years, was recruited from men attending the British United Provident Association (BUPA) clinic in London for a routine medical examination in 1975-1982. Smoking habits, weight, height and blood pressure were recorded at entry. Lipids and apolipoproteins were measured in stored serum samples from the 30 men who subsequently died of ruptured AAA and 150 matched controls. RESULTS: Triglyceride was strongly related to risk of ruptured AAA. In univariate analyses the risk in men on the 90th centile of the distribution relative to the risk in men on the 10th (RO10-90) was 12 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 3.8-37) for triglyceride, 5.5 (95% CI: 1.8-17) for apolipoprotein B (apoB) (the protein component of low density lipoprotein [LDL]), 0.15 (95% CI : 0.04-0.56) for apo A1 (the protein component of high density lipoprotein [HDL]), 3.7 (95% CI: 1.4-9.4) for body mass index and 3.0 (95% CI: 1.1-8.5) for systolic blood pressure. Lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)) was not a significant risk factor (RO10-90 = 1.6, 95% CI: 0.6-3.0). In multivariate analysis triglyceride retained its strong association. CONCLUSION: Triglyceride appears to be a strong risk factor for ruptured AAA, although further studies are required to clarify this. If this and other associations are cause and effect, then changing the distribution of risk factors in the population (by many people stopping smoking and adopting a lower saturated fat diet and by lowering blood pressure) could achieve an important reduction in mortality from ruptured AAA.  (+info)

Allyl-containing sulfides in garlic increase uncoupling protein content in brown adipose tissue, and noradrenaline and adrenaline secretion in rats. (3/12738)

The effects of garlic supplementation on triglyceride metabolism were investigated by measurements of the degree of thermogenesis in interscapular brown adipose tissue (IBAT), and noradrenaline and adrenaline secretion in rats fed two types of dietary fat. In Experiment 1, rats were given isoenergetic high-fat diets containing either shortening or lard with or without garlic powder supplementation (8 g/kg of diet). After 28 d feeding, body weight, plasma triglyceride levels and the weights of perirenal adipose tissue and epididymal fat pad were significantly lower in rats fed diets supplemented with garlic powder than in those fed diets without garlic powder. The content of mitochondrial protein and uncoupling protein (UCP) in IBAT, and urinary noradrenaline and adrenaline excretion were significantly greater in rats fed a lard diet with garlic powder than in those fed the same diet without garlic. Other than adrenaline secretion, differences due to garlic were significant in rats fed shortening, also. In Experiment 2, the effects of various allyl-containing sulfides present in garlic on noradrenaline and adrenaline secretion were evaluated. Administration of diallyldisulfide, diallyltrisulfide and alliin, organosulfur compounds present in garlic, significantly increased plasma noradrenaline and adrenaline concentrations, whereas the administration of disulfides without allyl residues, diallylmonosulfide and S-allyl-L-cysteine did not increase adrenaline secretion. These results suggest that in rats, allyl-containing sulfides in garlic enhance thermogenesis by increasing UCP content in IBAT, and noradrenaline and adrenaline secretion.  (+info)

The food matrix of spinach is a limiting factor in determining the bioavailability of beta-carotene and to a lesser extent of lutein in humans. (4/12738)

Carotenoid bioavailability depends, amongst other factors, on the food matrix and on the type and extent of processing. To examine the effect of variously processed spinach products and of dietary fiber on serum carotenoid concentrations, subjects received, over a 3-wk period, a control diet (n = 10) or a control diet supplemented with carotenoids or one of four spinach products (n = 12 per group): whole leaf spinach with an almost intact food matrix, minced spinach with the matrix partially disrupted, enzymatically liquefied spinach in which the matrix was further disrupted and the liquefied spinach to which dietary fiber (10 g/kg wet weight) was added. Consumption of spinach significantly increased serum concentrations of all-trans-beta-carotene, cis-beta-carotene, (and consequently total beta-carotene), lutein, alpha-carotene and retinol and decreased the serum concentration of lycopene. Serum total beta-carotene responses (changes in serum concentrations from the start to the end of the intervention period) differed significantly between the whole leaf and liquefied spinach groups and between the minced and liquefied spinach groups. The lutein response did not differ among spinach groups. Addition of dietary fiber to the liquefied spinach had no effect on serum carotenoid responses. The relative bioavailability as compared to bioavailability of the carotenoid supplement for whole leaf, minced, liquefied and liquefied spinach plus added dietary fiber for beta-carotene was 5.1, 6.4, 9.5 and 9.3%, respectively, and for lutein 45, 52, 55 and 54%, respectively. We conclude that the bioavailability of lutein from spinach was higher than that of beta-carotene and that enzymatic disruption of the matrix (cell wall structure) enhanced the bioavailability of beta-carotene from whole leaf and minced spinach, but had no effect on lutein bioavailability.  (+info)

Improvement of factor VII clotting activity following long-term NCPAP treatment in obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome. (5/12738)

Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is a very common disorder. Patients with OSAS are at an increased risk for cardiovascular events. It has also been reported that a 25% rise in factor VII clotting activity (FVIIc) is associated with a 55% increase in ischaemic heart disease death during the first 5 years. We examined the effects of nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) treatment on FVIIc in patients with OSAS. FVIIc was investigated prospectively in 15 patients with OSAS before (mean +/- SEM apnoea and hypopnoea index (AHI) 61.5 +/- 4.2 and after (AHI 3.0 +/- 0.9) NCPAP treatment for immediate relief, at 1 month after treatment and at over 6 months. FVIIc levels gradually decreased after NCPAP treatment. After 6 months of NCPAP treatment, FVIIc levels had decreased significantly (before 141.1 +/- 11.7% vs. after 6 months 110.7 +/- 6.2%; p < 0.01). Six of the seven patients whose FVIIc levels were over 140% before the NCPAP treatment had FVIIc levels below 130% after 6 months or 1 year of NCPAP treatment. This decrease in FVIIc after long-term NCPAP treatment could improve mortality in OSAS patients. If patients, especially obese ones, present with high FVIIc of unknown origin, it would be prudent to check for OSAS.  (+info)

Chronic infection with Helicobacter pylori, Chlamydia pneumoniae, or cytomegalovirus: population based study of coronary heart disease. (6/12738)

OBJECTIVE: To study possible associations between coronary heart disease and serological evidence of persistent infection with Helicobacter pylori, Chlamydia pneumoniae, or cytomegalovirus. DESIGN: Population based, case-control study, nested within a randomised trial. SETTING: Five general practices in Bedfordshire, UK. INDIVIDUALS: 288 patients with incident or prevalent coronary heart disease and 704 age and sex matched controls. RESULTS: High concentrations of serum IgG antibodies to H pylori were present in 54% of cases v 46% of controls, with corresponding results for C pneumoniae seropositivity (33% v 33%), and cytomegalovirus seropositivity (40% v 31%). After adjustments for age, sex, smoking, indicators of socioeconomic status, and standard risk factors, the odds ratios (95% confidence intervals) for coronary heart disease of seropositivity to these agents were: 1.28 (0.93 to 1.75) for H pylori, 0.95 (0.66 to 1.36) for C pneumoniae, and 1.40 (0.96 to 2. 05) for cytomegalovirus. CONCLUSIONS: There is no good evidence of strong associations between coronary heart disease and serological markers of persistent infection with H pylori, C pneumoniae, or cytomegalovirus. To determine the existence of moderate associations between these agents and disease, however, larger scale studies will be needed that can keep residual confounders to a minimum.  (+info)

Dietary control of triglyceride and phospholipid synthesis in rat liver slices. (7/12738)

1. The effect of dietary manipulation on the synthesis of triglycerides and phospholipids was investigated by determining the incorporation of labeled long-chain fatty acid or glycerol into these lipids in liver slices derived from normally fed, fasted, and fat-free refed rats. 2. Triglyceride synthesis was affected markedly by the dietary regime of the animal; the lowest rates were measured with fasted rats, and the highest ones with fat-free refed rats. 3. In contrast to triglyceride synthesis, phospholipid synthesis occured at virtually constant rates regardless of the dietary conditions. 4. Addition of large amounts of fatty acid to the incubation mixture resulted in a marked stimulation of triglyceride synthesis, whereas phospholipid synthesis was affected to a much smaller extent. 5. These results indicate that the synthesis of triglycerides and that of phospholipids are controlled independently, and that the availability of fatty acid in the cell contributes to the control of triglyceride synthesis.  (+info)

Extremely low values of serum leptin in children with congenital generalized lipoatrophy. (8/12738)

Congenital generalized lipoatrophy (CGL) is a syndrome with multiple clinical manifestations and complete atrophy of adipose tissue. The exact mechanism of this disease remains unknown. One hypothesis presupposes an abnormal development of adipocytes. Leptin, the adipocyte-specific product of the ob gene, acts as a regulatory factor of body weight. In children, as in adults, leptin levels are correlated with body mass index (BMI) and body fat mass. Some authors have demonstrated that adults with congenital or acquired generalized lipoatrophy have decreased leptin concentrations. In order to study serum leptin profile during childhood in this disease, we measured serum leptin concentrations in six children aged 5.5-11 years suffering from CGL, and investigated the relationship between metabolic parameters and the variations in leptin levels. Serum leptin concentrations (1.19+/-0.32 ng/ml (+/- S.D.)) were extremely low compared with those observed in normal children. No significant correlation was found with BMI, which is known to be one of the major determinants of serum leptin. Serum leptin values were significantly correlated with fasting insulin levels (r=0.83, P=0.024). In conclusion, extremely low leptin values measured in children with CGL could be regarded as one among other diagnostic parameters. However, the detectable levels observed in all of these children support the evidence that a small amount of body fat is likely to be present in these patients, despite complete subcutaneous lipoatrophy. Our data suggest that this small amount of adipose tissue could be metabolically active and, at least in part, sensitive to insulin. Further investigations are required to uncover the pathophysiological mechanisms of this syndrome, known to be commonly associated with insulin resistance.  (+info)

Although medium chain triglyceride (MCT) is less calorically dense than long chain triglyceride (LCT), it produces a greater thermic effect following ingestion. We hypothesized that the previously observed high rate of thermogenesis produced by MCT overfeeding was due to hepatic de novo synthesis of long chain fatty acids (LCFA) from the excess medium chain fatty acids (MCFA). To study this, we compared the effects of overfeeding MCT- and LCT-containing diets on blood lipid profiles. Ten in-patient, nonobese males were overfed (150% of estimated energy requirements) two formula diets for 6 days each, in a randomized crossover design. Diets differed only in the composition of the fat and contained either 40% of energy as MCT or LCT (soybean oil). The major differences between diets in the resulting pattern of blood lipids were: 1) a reduction in fasting serum total cholesterol concentrations with the LCT, but not the MCT diet; and 2) a threefold increase in fasting serum triglyceride ...

Hyperinsulinemia is common in obesity, but whether it plays a role in intramyocellular triglyceride (imcTG) buildup is unknown. In this study, hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp experiments were performed in overnight-fasted lean and high-fat-fed obese rats, awake, to determine the effect of insulin on imcTG synthesis (incorporation of [(14)C]glycerol, [(14)C]glucose, and [(3)H]oleate). Insulin infusion at 25 (low insulin) and 100 (high insulin) pmol/kg/min increased plasma insulin by 5- and 16-fold, respectively, whereas plasma and intramyocellular glycerol, FFAs, triglycerides, and glucose levels were maintained at their basal levels by co-infusion of exogenous glycerol, FFAs, and triglycerides at fixed rates and glucose at varying rates. In obese rats, insulin suppressed incorporation of glycerol into the imcTG-glycerol moiety dose dependently (P | 0.01-P | 0.001) in gastrocnemius and tibialis anterior, but only the high insulin suppressed it in soleus (P | 0.05). The low insulin suppressed glucose
The liver secretes triglyceride-rich VLDLs, and the triglycerides in these particles are taken up by peripheral tissues, mainly heart, skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue. Blocking hepatic VLDL secretion interferes with the delivery of liver-derived triglycerides to peripheral tissues and results in an accumulation of triglycerides in the liver. However, it is unclear how interfering with hepatic triglyceride secretion affects adiposity, muscle triglyceride stores, and insulin sensitivity. To explore these issues, we examined mice that cannot secrete VLDL [due to the absence of microsomal triglyceride transfer protein (Mttp) in the liver]. These mice exhibit markedly reduced levels of apolipoprotein B-100 in the plasma, along with reduced levels of triglycerides in the plasma. Despite the low plasma triglyceride levels, triglyceride levels in skeletal muscle were unaffected. Adiposity and adipose tissue triglyceride synthesis rates were also normal, and body weight curves were unaffected. Even ...

A high triglyceride level is a symptom- a sign that something is not right. For most of us, our diet and lifestyle choices are the culprit. For others, maybe not.. For others, it may be a sign of uncontrolled diabetes. Or perhaps hypothyroidism or a kidney problem. Closely working with your doctor is necessary to determine what is causing the high level of triglycerides. Taking medications to specifically lower your triglycerides if you are dealing with undiagnosed hypothyroidism or an unknown kidney issue ...
Previously we showed that chemical inhibition of iPLA2β in rat hepatoma McA-RH7777 cells attenuated hepatic VLDL assembly/secretion. To gain an insight into the role that iPLA2β plays in vivo, we generated C57BL/6 mice with targeted disruption of iPLA2β gene. The iPLA2β−/− mice developed normally to their maturity. Under chow diet conditions, female iPLA2β−/− and wild-type littermate (10-week-old) displayed no discernable difference in plasma lipid concentration or apolipoprotein levels, nor was their plasma lipoprotein profiling changed as determined by rate floatation ultracentrifugation. However, iPLA2β−/− mice liver accumulated 20% less triacylglycerol (TG) than wt controls, whereas phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) levels were not significantly different. Determination of VLDL-TG production rate in vivo using mice injected with poloxamer 407 (to block the lipoprotein lipase activity) revealed that accumulation of plasma TG in iPLA2β−/− mice ...

Triglycerides are a fat in your blood. They are important to maintaining good health. However, if your triglycerides get out of control, you can put your heart at risk. People with high triglycerides usually have lower HDL (good) cholesterol and a higher risk of heart attack and stroke.. Calories you take in but dont burn immediately are converted to triglycerides to supply you with energy later. Your triglycerides level can be too high if you continue to consume more calories than you need. Of course, this causes obesity, too.. Other causes of elevated triglycerides, called hypertriglyceridemia, include diabetes, an underactive thyroid, kidney disease and drugs such as beta-blockers, some diuretics, estrogen, tamoxifen, steroids and birth control pills.. The common guidelines for triglyceride levels are the following: normal, less than 150 mg/dL; borderline-high, 150 to 199 mg-dL; high, 200 to 499 mg-dL, and very high, 500 mg-dL or more. Mg-dL stands for milligram per deciliter.. The primary ...

Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood, and high levels are a risk factor for heart disease. Consequently, lower triglyceride levels is one of the approaches that should be included in heart-healthy lifestyle.
BACKGROUND: A ketogenic diet (KD), which has restricted carbohydrates, sufficient protein, and a very high fat content, causes the body to switch from a glucose-based metabolism to a ketone-based metabolism. The KD has been effective at reducing seizures in epileptic patients. Autism is comorbid with epilepsy and characterized by restricted and repetitive behaviors, low sociability, and deficits in communication. A strict version of the long-chain triglyceride (LCT) KD has been effective at reducing autistic symptoms in BTBR T+tf/J, an autistic model of mice. However, a more moderate and clinically relevant version of the LCT KD has been shown to be ineffective in this model. Recent studies suggest that a KD derived primarily from medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) will effectively reduce the severity of autistic symptoms. A MCT KD has been shown to cause an increase in ketone bodies, acetyl-CoA, and ATP similar to a LCT KD. However, MCTs are hydrolyzed faster than LCTs and provide more kilocalories per

What is the connection between high triglycerides and diabetes? The purpose of triglycerides is to help with fat storage in your body, and are produced from carbohydrates which are part of your diet. Triglycerides store fat that is later used as an energy source by your body, and the compound insulin is needed for fat to be formed. Diabetes is a condition where your body does not handle carbohydrates and especially sugars very well, and there may not be enough insulin created by your body to meet your physical needs. Often making an effort to reduce triglycerides in your diet can minimize or even prevent diabetes.. A normal triglyceride level should be less than 150mg/dL, and anything higher than this could signal the start of diabetic changes. If you have high triglycerides and diabetes you can develop a condition called diabetic dyslipidemia, which can double your risk of heart disease. Changes in your diet and lifestyle can play a big role in managing both triglycerides and diabetes. ...
When three fatty acids are grouped together by a molecule of glycol, you have a triglyceride. Thus, you can also have short chain triglycerides (SCTs), medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and long chain triglycerides (LCTs). The terms fatty acids and triglycerides are often used interchangeably.. It is important to know that the fats contained in the coconut are primarily saturated medium chain fatty acids (MCFA), also called medium chain triglycerides (MCT). MCFAs are distinguished from other fatty acids because they are more digestible and have greater solubility in water.. In comparison, the vast majority of other fats in our diet such as soybean oil, corn oil, canola oil, olive oil, lard and chicken fats are fully formed. of LCFA.. About 98 to 100% of the fatty acids you eat each day consists of LCFA. This type of fatty acid requires pancreatic digestive enzymes and bile for digestion. While MCFA contained in coconut fat can provide a quick and easy source of nutrition without resorting to ...

This test measures the amount of triglycerides in your blood.. Triglycerides are one of several types of fats in your blood. Other kinds are LDL (bad) cholesterol and HDL (good) cholesterol. Knowing your triglyceride level is important, especially if you have diabetes, are overweight or a smoker, or are mostly inactive. High triglyceride levels may put you at greater risk for a heart attack or stroke. This test is part of a group of cholesterol and blood fat tests called a fasting lipoprotein panel, or lipid panel. This panel is recommended for all adults at least once every 5 years, or as recommended by your healthcare provider. Knowing your triglyceride level helps your healthcare provider suggest healthy changes to your diet or lifestyle. If you have triglycerides that are high to very high, your provider is more likely to prescribe medicines to lower your triglycerides or your LDL cholesterol. ...
Most stored body fat is in the form of triglycerides (triacylglycerols), which represent a highly concentrated form of energy. Most dietary fat is also triglycerides. But the body also makes triglycerides in the liver from carbohydrates. And the fastest, surest way to increase triglycerides in the blood is to eat a lot of sugar. Restricting sugar intake and supplementing with dietary antioxidants is often all that is required to return triglyceride levels to normal.. Both cholesterol and triglyceride levels can be reduced by taking supplementary red yeast rice extract, guggul resin extract, niacin, pantethine and phytosterols. Fish body oils are the only polyunsaturates known to lower triglycerides. Vegetable oils do not.. Also see BYPASS THE BYPASS: Restore Circulation Without Surgery (available at Amazon.com).

Epidemiologically related traits may share genetic risk factors, and pleiotropic analysis could identify individual loci associated with these traits. Because of their shared epidemiological associations, we conducted pleiotropic analysis of genome-wide association studies of lung cancer (12 160 lung cancer case patients and 16 838 control subjects) and cardiovascular disease risk factors (blood lipids from 188 577 subjects, type 2 diabetes from 148 821 subjects, body mass index from 123 865 subjects, and smoking phenotypes from 74 053 subjects). We found that 6p22.1 (rs6904596, ZNF184) was associated with both lung cancer (P = 5.50x10(-6)) and blood triglycerides (P = 1.39x10(-5)). We replicated the association in 6097 lung cancer case patients and 204 657 control subjects (P = 2.40 × 10(-4)) and in 71 113 subjects with triglycerides data (P = .01). rs6904596 reached genome-wide significance in lung cancer meta-analysis (odds ratio = 1.15, 95% confidence interval = 1.10 to 1.21 ,: Pcombined = 5.20x10(
Omega 3 foods are recommended to be included in the triglycerides diet for anyone dealing with the problem of high triglycerides. Triglycerides basically come from two sources. The first one is our bodys natural ability to produce them as they are essential components of our body and they are the most common type of fat stored for energy.. The second source of triglycerides is from the food we eat. We get them from our diet in the fat and carbohydrates that we eat. They then get converted into a type of triglycerides our body can use and store.. At some point, we may experience a rise in the levels of triglycerides in the body as we age or due to certain medical conditions or as an effect of the drugs we take. But the usual cause of the elevation in our triglycerides is diet. Simply put, we eat too much and exercise too little.. But the good news is that the treatment to lower our triglycerides is actually pretty simple. Watch what you eat and move more! And ditch smoking while you are at it. ...
The purpose of this investigation was to examine the effects of exercise and diet on muscle triglyceride. Seven endurance-trained men completed a 120min cycling bout at 65% of V O2max in an attempt to lower muscle glycogen and triglyceride. Each subject then ingested an isocaloric, high-carbohydrate (HI-CHO; 83% of kcal) or high-fat (HI-FAT; 68% of kcal) diet for the ensuing 24 h. A 1600 kJ cycling time trial was completed following this 24-h dietary period. Muscle glycogen concentration before (571±38 vs. 599±41 mmol•kg dw-1) and after (241±36 vs. 285±41 mmol•kg dw-1) the 120-min cycling bout was not different (P,0.05) between the HI-CHO and HI-FAT trials, respectively.

Fat in food is in the form of triglycerides. Its also the form in which your body stores fat. If you eat too much fat, too many calories or too much sugar, your body turns those nutrients into triglycerides, which may elevate blood levels and increase risk of heart disease. Watching your calories, as well as your fat and sugar intake, is necessary in order to bring blood triglyceride levels down. Consult your doctor to discuss your diet for high triglycerides.. ...
Triglycerides and cholesterol are both types of lipids, but triglycerides store unused calories for energy while cholesterol is used for cell membranes and some hormones. Since they are both lipids, they do not dissolve in the blood. Instead they need the help of lipoproteins for transport.. Up until recently, it wasnt clear how high levels of triglycerides caused a hardening of the arteries (Mayo Clinic). This condition is known as atherosclerosis, and when combined with high cholesterol may cause plaques to build up in the arteries. This places people at risk for coronary artery disease and heart attacks.. High triglycerides may be a result of obesity, type 2 diabetes, low thyroid, liver or kidney disease, beta blockers, birth control pills, diuretics, steroids, or the breast cancer drug tamoxifen.. New Studies. A report published May 6, 2010 found that high levels of triglycerides can cause heart disease. Up until this point, cholesterol levels were the main focus of heart disease ...

These double bonds are sensitive to oxidation, which turns natural triglycerides rancid. As a consequence, the use of natural triglycerides in cosmetic needs to be balanced with their tendancy to turn rancid, with a typical malodor associated. The solution is often to add anti-oxidants to cosmetic formulations with natural fats, to prevent oxidation and rancid odor.. Another option, to keep the benefits of natural oils (skin feel, emolliency), without the drawback of oxidation, is to go with Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride. This ingredient is a synthetic triglyceride from natural origin (generally Coconut and Palm). This means that the fatty chains and glycerine can be from natural origin, and a chemical reaction is made (esterification) to synthesize the triglyceride. The fatty chains come from Caprylic Acid and Capric Acid, both saturated (ie without double bonds), so resistant to oxidation.. Molecule of Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride :. ...
Sept. 11, 2019-People with high triglyceride levels may want to talk with their doctor about adding a prescription omega-3 fatty acid medication to their cholesterol-lowering therapy.

BACKGROUND: Patients with elevated triglyceride levels are at increased risk for ischemic events. Icosapent ethyl, a highly purified eicosapentaenoic acid ethyl ester, lowers triglyceride levels, but data are needed to determine its effects on ischemic events.. METHODS: We performed a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving patients with established cardiovascular disease or with diabetes and other risk factors, who had been receiving statin therapy and who had a fasting triglyceride level of 135 to 499 mg per deciliter (1.52 to 5.63 mmol per liter) and a low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level of 41 to 100 mg per deciliter (1.06 to 2.59 mmol per liter). The patients were randomly assigned to receive 2 g of icosapent ethyl twice daily (total daily dose, 4 g) or placebo. The primary end point was a composite of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, coronary revascularization, or unstable angina. The key secondary end point was a ...
MCTs or Medium Chain Triglycerides are a healthy fat that requires minimal effort from the liver to convert into ketones. Without getting too complex, fats are made up of chains of carbon atoms. MCTs are made up of 6 to 12 atoms as opposed to 13 to 21 in long-chain fatty acids. Because there are fewer carbon atoms, they can be digested more easily. Ketones are a primary fuel source for your brain and a good source of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP). In simple terms, ATP obtains the chemical energy from the breakdown of food and releases that energy to fuel other cellular functions necessary for muscle contraction.. While some MCT oils are harvested from palm oil, most quality MCT oils are harvested from coconuts. Oils made from coconut tend to have higher lauric acid content. This acid is a slower burning fuel source in comparison to the C8 and C10 chains in MCT, so you get the best of both worlds. The difference between coconut oil and MCT oil is that MCT oil is more concentrated. Coconut oil is ...

Background: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), is characterized by progressively increasing blood glucose levels due to insulin resistance and eventual insulin deficiency caused by loss of Beta cell function. To start with only postprandial (PPG) levels are raised and later on fasting plasma glucose (FBG) is also increased. It is noted that hypertension, dyslipidemias, weight gain and CVD are more prevalent among diabetics. Anti-diabetic agents used for control of diabetes mellitus must be able to improve blood glucose, blood pressure, lipid levels and body weight. Insulin and OHGs, both are effective treatment regimens in controlling hyperglycemic events. Objective: (1) To determine mean triglyceride, HDL and LDL levels in controlled type II diabetes mellitus patients. To compare mean triglyceride, HDL and LDL levels in controlled type II diabetes mellitus patients using oral hypoglycemic drugs with patient using insulin.

Familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCHL) is a genetic disorder characterized by increases in plasma cholesterol and/or triglyceride, elevated apolipoprotein B, and heterogeneous low density lipoprotein (LDL). To examine the relation between plasma triglyceride concentrations and LDL heterogeneity, 13 hypertriglyceridemic FCHL patients with a predominance of small LDL (LDL subclass phenotype B) were treated with gemfibrozil. The distribution of LDL was determined using nondenaturing gradient gel electrophoresis and nonequilibrium density gradient ultracentrifugation. Mean plasma triglyceride levels decreased 55% (p , 0.01) after 3 months of treatment. Mean LDL peak particle size remained small (247 +/- 4 versus 249 +/- 5 A), and the correlation between change in plasma triglyceride concentrations and a change in LDL peak particle size was not significant. Individual changes in LDL flotation rate (Rf) were, however, inversely correlated with changes in triglyceride concentration (R = 0.60, p , ...

AU - Mito, Natsuko. AU - Shibata, Shigenobu. PY - 2007/8. Y1 - 2007/8. N2 - Energy homeostasis is subjected to a circadian control that synchronizes energy intake and expenditure. The transcription factor CLOCK, a key component of the molecular circadian clock, controls many kinds of rhythms, such as those for locomotor activity, body temperature, and metabolic functions. The purpose of the present study is to understand the function of the Clock gene during lipid metabolism in the liver using Clock-mutant mice. Clock-mutant mice with an ICR background were fed a high-fat diet for 13 weeks, and liver triglyceride, serum triglyceride, and serum free fatty acid levels were examined. Triglyceride content in the liver was significantly less increased in Clock-mutant mice on a high-fat diet compared to wild-type ...
Widely prescribed medications are often taken to influence all of these issues, especially when efforts to control them with diet, exercise, and proper weight have not been effective. However, some of these medications have unwanted side effects that remain a concern.. In this research, it was found that supplements of lipoic acid appeared to affect triglyceride levels through two pathways. After eating, lipoic acid supplementation increased the rate of disappearance of triglycerides in the bloodstream. And supplements also reduced the genetic expression of enzymes in the liver that synthesize triglycerides.. This is the first study that has identified the molecular targets by which lipoic acid can lower triglyceride levels, the researchers said, and to show the effect on liver enzymes resulting in less production of triglycerides. It also found that the mechanism of action of how lipoic acid can lower triglycerides appears separate and distinct from that provided by fibrate drugs, a group of ...
Genome-wide association studies have identified GALNT2 as a candidate gene in lipid metabolism, but it is not known how the encoded enzyme ppGalNAc-T2, which contributes to the initiation of mucin-type O-linked glycosylation, mediates this effect. In two probands with elevated plasma high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and reduced triglycerides, we identified a mutation in GALNT2. It is shown that carriers have improved postprandial triglyceride clearance, which is likely attributable to attenuated glycosylation of apolipoprotein (apo) C-III, as observed in their plasma. This protein inhibits lipoprotein lipase (LPL), which hydrolyses plasma triglycerides. We show that an apoC-III-based peptide is a substrate for ppGalNAc-T2 while its glycosylation by the mutant enzyme is impaired. In addition, neuraminidase treatment of apoC-III which removes the sialic acids from its glycan chain decreases its potential to inhibit LPL. Combined, these data suggest that ppGalNAc-T2 can affect lipid metabolism ...

Medium Chain Triglycerides might be a saturated fat, but that doesnt mean theyre bad for you. In fact, far from it, says Peter Wilson. Fat is bad for you right? The supermarkets are all selling low fat products and we are all told how we should be reducing our cholesterol. The media has used a really broad brush here
What treatments for elevated triglycerides?. , Dietary advice is essential, and these are the first to apply, with the recommendations of lifestyle hygiene (increase in physical activity).. , You should also know that fish oils have a beneficial effect on triglyceride levels. We are no longer at the time of cod liver oil, all this is now in the form of capsules (dietary supplements).. , Medications are very effective. They are usually indicated when dietary recommendations are insufficient. These are fibrates, derivatives of fibric acid. They are lipid-lowering drugs (drugs that lower the level of lipids in the blood). They lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and are prescribed by a doctor.. By reducing the level of triglycerides, fibrates help reduce LDL cholesterol - called bad cholesterol. But in studies, fibrates have not always prevented myocardial infarction ... ...

TY - GEN. T1 - Mathematically modeling the role of triglyceride production on leptin resistance. AU - Zhao, Yu. AU - Burkow, Daniel. AU - Song, Baojun. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Diet-induced obesity is becoming more common all over the world, which is increasing the prevalence of obesity-induced chronic diseases such as diabetes, coronary heart disease, cancer, and sleep apnea. Many experimental results show that obesity is often associated with an elevated concentration of plasma leptin and triglycerides. Triglycerides inhibit the passage of leptin across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to signal the hypothalamus to suppress appetite. However, it is still not clear how triglyceride concentration affects leptin transport across the BBB and energy balance. In this paper, we propose a novel ordinary differential equations model describing the role of leptin in the regulation of adipose tissue mass. Analytical and numerical results are analyzed using biologically relevant parameter values. ...
Accelerated turnover of very low density lipoprotein triglycerides in chronic alcohol users. A possible mechanism for the up-regulation of high density lipoprotein by ethanol. doi: 10.1016/0021-9150(84)90194-1. The Reason: This one actually caught my attention not only because of the topic of the paper, but also because of its implications beyond the population studied. In short, frequent consumers of alcohol can present with an abnormally high HDL level, and this can eventually progress to high HDL along with high triglycerides. An unusual profile, for sure, and also one that can lead to thinking theyre healthier than they actually are, just by looking at their lipid profile. If you ask them to stop drinking for a while, their HDL goes back to reflecting their normal level. They found, in short, that this was likely due to rapid cycling of VLDL - both increased production, and increased clearance - resulting in higher HDL levels. I found this bit interesting, and perhaps especially relevant in ...
Triglyceride-rich lipoproteins as a causal factor for cardiovascular disease Peter P Toth1,2 1Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, 2Preventive Cardiology, CGH Medical Center, Sterling, IL, USA Abstract: Approximately 25% of US adults are estimated to have hypertriglyceridemia (triglyceride [TG] level ≥150 mg/dL [≥1.7 mmol/L]). Elevated TG levels are associated with increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, and severe hypertriglyceridemia (TG levels ≥500 mg/dL [≥5.6 mmol/L]) is a well-established risk factor for acute pancreatitis. Plasma TG levels correspond to the sum of the TG content in TG-rich lipoproteins (TRLs; ie, very low-density lipoproteins plus chylomicrons) and their remnants. There remains some uncertainty regarding the direct causal role of TRLs in the progression of atherosclerosis and CVD, with cardiovascular outcome studies of TG-lowering agents, to date, having produced inconsistent
Predicting fatty acid composition of beef cattle at slaughter using weaner data would enable an early selection decision thereby saving time and costs associated with progeny testing. The aim of this study was to examine genetic and phenotypic correlations between triacylglycerol fatty acid composition at weaning and slaughter. Subcutaneous fat between the 12th and 13th rib interface was biopsied from 324 weaner calves sired by Angus, Belgian Blue, Hereford, Jersey, Limousin, South Devon and Wagyu. Fat from the same anatomical site was sampled from their carcasses at slaughter and analysed for fatty acids by gas-liquid chromatography. Statistical analysis was by Mixed Model and Maximum Likelihood procedures of Harvey (1990) after adjusting for genotype, sire nested within genotype, sex and location. Results indicated strongly positive genetic correlations between biopsy and carcass stearate (18:0), oleate (18:1n-9), total monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) and delta-nine desaturase enzyme index ...
THE EFFECTS OF DIETARY DIACYLGLYCEROLS ON POSTPRANDIAL LIPEMIA COMPARED TO TRIACYLGLYCEROLS IN COLLEGE AGED MALES AND FEMALES.. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the difference in postprandial triglyceride response of subjects to triacylglycerols [canola oil] compared to diacylglycerols [Enova oil] to determine if consumption of diacylglycerols produces a lower postprandial triglyceride response. Background: Postprandial lipemia is an increase in duration and magnitude of triglycerides in the blood. An elevated postprandial response to lipids is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome, and metabolic syndrome independently increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The greater the magnitude of lipemia, the greater the risk. In a double-blind study on male subjects, consumption of 10-44g (about 2 tsp to 3 tbsp) of diacylglycerol oil compared to triacylglycerol oil resulted in a decreased serum TG response. The most ...
Essentialis, Inc., today announced Phase 2b trial results for its investigational compound DCCR demonstrating a reduction in triglyceride (TG) levels by 30 to 40 percent in patients whose TG levels exceeded 500 mg/dL (Very High Triglycerides VHTG). The study included an arm combining DCCR with fenofibrate treatment (Abbott Laboratories [email protected] (fenofibric acid)); in the combination arm, DCCR was shown to be additive to fenofibrate for all lipid fractions except LDL-C. In contrast, a 2009 study of VHTG patients using prescription omega-3 fatty acid in combination with fenofibrate revealed no clinically important change compared to fenofibrate alone(1).. More than five million people in the United States have very high TG levels. This population is at elevated risk for a number of diseases, including acute pancreatitis, diabetes and cardiovascular events (e.g., sudden death, myocardial infarction, acute coronary syndrome, revascularization, stroke and atrial fibrillation).. The results of this ...
Coconuts are among the treasure-trove of whole foods that are beneficial to horses and their riders and owners. Coconut meal, and coconut oil provide important nutritional components for equine athletes. Coconut oil provides medium chain triglycerides, which are more rapidly absorbed and more quickly metabolized than the long chain triglycerides found in olive oil, vegetable oil, soy oil, and corn oil. Rather than being stored for fat, the body converts the medium chain triglycerides into fuel for muscles.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are triglycerides whose fatty acids have an aliphatic tail of 6-12 carbon atoms. The fatty acids found in MCTs are called medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). Like all triglycerides, MCTs are composed of a glycerol backbone and three fatty acids. In the case of MCTs, 2 or 3 of the fatty acid chains attached to glycerol are of medium length. Rich sources for commercial extraction of beneficial MCTs include palm kernel oil and coconut oil. With regard to MCFAs, apart from the above listed straight chain (unbranched chain) fatty acids, side chain (branched chain) fatty acids also exist. Molecular weight analysis of milk from different species showed that while milk fats from all studied species were primarily composed of long-chain fatty acid (16 and 18 carbons long), approximately 10-20% of the fatty acids in milk from horses, cows, sheep, and goats were medium-chain fatty acids. Some studies have shown that MCTs can help in the process of excess calorie burning, ...
Using SSCP, we have identified a common variant within the LPL promoter, a T→G transition at position −93. This mutation was previously reported by Yang et al27 to occur in an individual who had a T-to-C substitution at nucleotide −39 of the LPL gene, but on the other chromosome. In a sample of healthy white men from the UK, the carrier frequency of this mutation is 3.4%. Several of the DNA samples used in the SSCP analysis were from individuals of Afro-Caribbean origin, and from the initial SSCP screening, it was obvious that the −93G allele was much more common in this group. Genotyping a sample of 91 Afro-Caribbeans showed that the −93G carrier frequency was 18-fold higher than in the whites (62.6% versus 3.4%).. Since the NPHSII sample had been genotyped for both mutations, it became apparent that there was very strong allelic association between −93G and N9 (83%; −=.91, P=.00001), with 17% of −93G alleles being on the wild-type D9 background (−93G/D9). We did not identify ...
An adequate daily supply of omega 3 fatty acids confers multiple health benefits upon you. Meeting your daily requirements of omega 3 is indeed crucial to optimum physical and mental health, especially in preventing (even reversing) heart disease. Omega 3 fats reverse heart disease, boost immune function, fight degenerative disease, help increase fertility, improve mental health and promote healthy skin.. Numerous studies have shown that there are benefits from taking fish oil supplements for triglyceride levels that are above normal. High blood triglyceride increases risk of heart attacks, and their control is an important thrust of primary prevention of heart disease.. Triglyceride levels can be reduced by cutting down on consumption of fats, alcohol and simple carbohydrates. Omega 3 fatty acides, particularly EPA and DHA, help further in bringing down levels.. Fish oils for triglyceride control act in a roughly dose dependent manner, with more fish oil intake being better. Taking 4.5 grams of ...

Quite dramatic elevations in serum triglycerides are seen following ethanol ingestion,1 with levels over 100 mmol/l reported in chronic alcoholics.2 In the UK, patterns of ethanol ingestion are somewhat predictable. Typically, more units are consumed on Friday and Saturday nights than other nights.3 Burton-on-Trent is known internationally as the brewing capital of Great Britain,4 and was once responsible for brewing a quarter of all beer in the UK. It is not known whether consumption levels are reflected in this statistic, but nevertheless we hypothesised that the effect of weekend binge may be reflected in subsequent measurement … ...

Sitnick et al. (1) provide compelling evidence that skeletal muscle-specific modulations of adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) expression in vivo in mice impacts intramyocellular triacylglycerol (IMTG) content with no measurable effects on other lipid species (diacylglycerols [DAG], ceramides, and long-chain acyl-coenzyme A) and insulin sensitivity. The authors speculate that the fatty acid (FA) cycle observed in cardiac muscle, with FA largely trafficking through IMTG before being consumed, may only occur in skeletal muscle during exercise. However, data from Jensen and colleagues (2) elegantly demonstrate that this cycle may be physiologically relevant in resting human skeletal muscle under normal feeding conditions. The findings in mice are also contrasting with the effect of ATGL on fat oxidation and insulin sensitivity observed in vitro in human primary myotubes (3).. The study by Sitnick et al. (1) raises a number of questions. It is first striking that long-term high-fat feeding did not ...
OBJECTIVES Paraoxanase 1 (PON1) plays a protective role against the oxidative modification of plasma lipoproteins and hydrolyzes lipid peroxides in human atherosclerotic lesions. Cumin is the dried seed of the herb Cuminumcyminum that is known as Zeera in Iran. Cumin seeds contain flavonoids which are now generally recognized to have antioxidant activity and improve the antioxidant system. So, they possibly modify PON1 activity and oxidized low density lipoprotein (oxLDL) level. The present study was aimed to evaluate the effects of cumin extract supplementation on oxLDL, paraoxanase 1 activity, FBS, total cholesterol, triglycerides, High density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), apolipoprotein A1 (Apo A1), and apolipoprotein B (Apo B)in the patients with hypercholesterolemia. METHODOLOGY A fasting venous blood sample was obtained from the voluntary persons before and 45±3 days after taking cumin. Glucose, total cholesterol, and triglycerides were ...

Inclusion of turmeric for a spice in the recipe may help regulate blood Body fat stages after a meal. Research clearly show that the activity of sure enzymes (including pancreatic lipase and phospholipase A2) might be inhibited by incorporation of turmeric into recipes, using a results of reduced blood triglycerides following food consumption. From the studies that we have reviewed, turmeric wasnt employed by by itself, but together with other spices including ginger, garlic, black pepper, cinnamon, and clove. A single distinct intriguing cause just one examine was the job of pressure in altering turmeric Advantages. In this particular analyze, reduced levels of blood triglycerides had been only witnessed when analyze contributors stayed relaxed next their turmeric-that contains meals. Nevertheless, In the event the participants turned engaged in tense functions just after their meals, blood triglyceride degrees werent minimized with the turmeric-made up of meals ...
Introduction Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) are lipid molecules composed of a glycerol backbone and three medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) whose chain lengths are between 6 and 12 carbon atoms.1 Long-chain triglycerides (LCT), on the other hand, contain long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) whose chain lengths are 14 or more carbon atoms.1 Because the digestion and absorption of MCT involve fewer biological steps than LCT (see mechanisms of action), MCT are easily absorbed and more rapidly transported to target organs for utilization, and little are stored in adipose tissue.1-4 These characteristics have made MCT a valuable dietary ingredient in enteral and parenteral formula for patients suffering from impaired digestion of LCT since the 1950s.5. Because MCT are rapidly oxidized to acetyl-CoA, and higher concentrations of acetyl-CoA are conducive to ketone body formation,3 MCT were introduced as an alternative to fat in a ketogenic diet in the 1970s for the management of intractable childhood ...
The independent relationship between triglycerides and coronary heart disease Alan Morrison1, John E Hokanson21SCRIBCO, Blue Bell, PA, USA; 2Department of Epidemiology, Colorado School of Public Health, University of Colorado at Denver Denver, CO, USAAims: The aim was to review epidemiologic studies to reassess whether serum levels of triglycerides should be considered independently of high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) as a predictor of coronary heart disease (CHD).Methods and results: We systematically reviewed population-based cohort studies in which baseline serum levels of triglycerides and HDL-C were included as explanatory variables in multivariate analyses with the development of CHD (coronary events or coronary death) as dependent variable. A total of 32 unique reports describing 38 cohorts were included. The independent association between elevated triglycerides and risk of CHD was statistically significant in 16 of 30 populations without pre-existing CHD. Among populations with
RESULTS: During a median 24 and 17 years of 100% complete follow-up, 9991 and 4005 individuals died in observational and genetic analyses, respectively. In observational analyses compared to individuals with nonfasting plasma triglycerides of 266-442 mg/dL (3.00-4.99 mmol/L), multivariably adjusted hazard ratios for all-cause mortality were 0.89 (95% CI 0.78-1.02) for 177-265 mg/dL (2.00-2.99 mmol/L), 0.74 (0.65-0.84) for 89-176 mg/dL (1.00-1.99 mmol/L), and 0.59 (0.51-0.68) for individuals with nonfasting triglycerides ,89 mg/dL (,1.00 mmol/L). The odds ratio for a genetically derived 89-mg/dL (1-mmol/L) lower concentration in nonfasting triglycerides was 0.50 (0.30-0.82), with a corresponding observational hazard ratio of 0.87 (0.85-0.89). Also, the odds ratio for a genetically derived 50% lower concentration in nonfasting triglycerides was 0.43 (0.23-0.80), with a corresponding observational hazard ratio of 0.73 (0.70-0.77).. ...
Generation 2+ LICA antisense drug. AKCEA-APOCIII-LRx is a Generation 2+ ligand-conjugated antisense (LICA) drug designed to inhibit the production of apoC-III, for patients who are at risk of disease due to elevated triglyceride levels. ApoC-III is a protein produced in the liver that regulates triglyceride metabolism in the blood. People with severely elevated triglycerides, such as people with familial chylomicronemia syndrome (FCS), are at high risk for acute pancreatitis and other serious conditions. ApoC-III is also the target of WAYLIVRA, the first approved medicine for patients with FCS.. About familial chylomicronemia syndrome (FCS). FCS is a rare, genetic disease characterized by extremely elevated triglyceride levels that is estimated to affect 3,000 to 5,000 people worldwide. People with FCS are at high risk of unpredictable and potentially fatal acute pancreatitis. In addition to pancreatitis, FCS patients are at risk of chronic complications due to permanent organ damage, including ...
This report is interesting and important for physicians to be aware of, but the major concepts are absolutely predictable with a basic understanding of serum cholesterol responses to carbohydrates in the diet. Simply stated, when people eat carbohydrates their HDL (good cholesterol) goes down and their triglycerides go up. This is uncontroversial, and so consistent that researchers use triglycerides and HDL as objective measures of carbohydrate consumption. Dr. Frank Sacks of Harvard Medical School explains in a recent paper on low carbohydrate diets that HDL is a biomarker for dietary carbohydrate. High triglycerides and low HDL means the subjects are eating lots of carbs. The AHAs report confirms this as well, explaining that very high intakes of carbohydrate (,60% of calories) is accompanied by a reduction in HDL cholesterol and a rise in triglyceride ...
Normal mobilization of lipids from peripheral tissues requires catecholamine-induced activation of adenyl-cyclase and cAMP, which activate protein kinase. Activated protein kinase, in turn, activates triglyceride lipase, releasing free fatty acids and glycerol from the cell. In Type I TSD, a defect of the adenyl-cyclase or catecholamine receptor is postulated. In Type II TSD, abnormality of protein kinase is proposed. In Type III TSD, a defect of the triglyceride lipase is proposed. Lipogenesis appears normal in all these conditions. The inability or impaired ability to mobilize lipids results in widespread lipid deposition. Classification into myocardial and skin types has been suggested to reflect the predominant tissues of triglyceride deposition, although it is important to note that TSD is a multisystem disorder. ...
It is established that elevated plasma RLP-C levels are associated with endothelial dysfunction, a marker for atherosclerotic disease.95 Patients with established coronary heart disease present elevated plasma levels of RLP-C.96,97 The intima-media thickness of the carotid artery was positively related to baseline plasma RLP-C concentrations in a secondary intervention study in patients aged 50 years and older after their first cardiovascular event.95 This association was independent of plasma TG and LDL cholesterol levels. In the Lopid Coronary Angiography Trial (LOCAT),95 the mean on-treatment plasma RLP-C concentration was significantly associated with the reduction of minimum luminal diameter (P,0.004). However, this association was not independent of plasma TG levels. In addition, a significant association was found between plasma RLP-C concentration and the occurrence of new lesions in vein grafts. In patients with vasospastic angina with or without myocardial infarction, plasma RLP-C ...
