*  Abstract 554: Vitamin D in Chronic Kidney Disease is Not Associated with Insulin Resistance | Hypertension
INTRODUCTION: Vitamin D deficiency is reported to be associated with Insulin Resistance (IR) in general population. Although the impaired homeostasis of vitamin D and IR are common conditions in chronic kidney disease (CKD), the underlying mechanisms of IR remain unclear and it is not known if vitamin D status is associated with IR in nondialyzed CKD patients.. OBJECTIVE: To investigate if serum levels of 25 hidroxivitamin D [25(OH)D] are associated with IR in nondialyzed CKD patients.. Methods: Cross-sectional study conducted in nondialyzed CKD outpatients under regular treatment, clinically stable, age≥18 years, estimated glomerular filtration rate (CKD-EPI) (eGFR)≤ 60 ml/min., not using vitamin D, corticosteroids and immunosuppressive drugs and without malignant diseases. Body adiposity: body mass index (BMI); total body adiposity by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry-DXA; waist-to-height ratio (WheiR). Vitamin D was determined by analysing 25(OH)D by Passing-Bablok method; ...

To determine whether adiposity was altered, body size (weight, length) and composition, determined by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry, were examined in preterm infants fed with a nutrient enriched (A, n=56), a term infant (B, n=57) or the nutrient e

*  Dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system can be a link between visceral adiposity and insulin resistance
Insulin resistance usually occurs early in the development of type 2 diabetes. An altered balance in the autonomic nervous system and in certain endocrine and inflammatory pathways, might contribute to the development of insulin resistance. In diabetes, hyperglycemia further aggravates insulin resistance as well as beta cell dysfunction but the mechanisms causing this phenomenon, i.e. glucotoxicity, are not fully understood.. Insulin resistance can be demonstrated in healthy first-degree relatives of type 2 diabetes patients who also have a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Relatives and control subjects without family history of diabetes were studied with respect to insulin sensitivity and the activity in the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and in the cortisol axis. Levels of sex hormones, leptin and cytokines were analysed. Abdominal adipose tissue distribution was determined with computed tomography.. Male relatives had decreased testosterone levels and increased leptin levels. There ...

Protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) and SH2 domain-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase-2 (SHP2) have been shown in mice to regulate metabolism via the central nervous system, but the specific neurons mediating these effects are unknown. Here, we have shown that proopiomelanocortin (POMC) neuron-specific deficiency in PTP1B or SHP2 in mice results in reciprocal effects on weight gain, adiposity, and energy balance induced by high-fat diet. Mice with POMC neuron-specific deletion of the gene encoding PTP1B (referred to herein as POMC-Ptp1b-/- mice) had reduced adiposity, improved leptin sensitivity, and increased energy expenditure compared with wild-type mice, whereas mice with POMC neuron-specific deletion of the gene encoding SHP2 (referred to herein as POMC-Shp2-/- mice) had elevated adiposity, decreased leptin sensitivity, and reduced energy expenditure. POMC-Ptp1b-/- mice showed substantially improved glucose homeostasis on a high-fat diet, and ...

*  Optimal body fat percentage cut-off values for identifying cardiovascular risk factors in Mongolian and Han adults: a...
The present study, using data obtained from Han and Mongolian adults from Inner Mongolia, China showed that BF% performed differently for discriminating CVD risk factors in sex and ethnicity. The optimal BF% cut-off points for men and women were approximately 24.0% and 34.0% in Han adults, and 25.0% and 35.0% in Mongolian population, respectively. Compared with WHO criteria, the optimal BF% cut-offs in this study were a little lower in Han adults, but similar in Mongolian, which were taken account of validity to detect CVD risk factors and clustering two or more CVD risk factors.. BMI is the most widely used measure to diagnose obesity. However, the accuracy of BMI in detecting excess body adiposity in the general adult population is limited, because it cannot measure BF% directly and poorly distinguishes among total body fat, total body lean and bone mass.12 13 To overcome misclassifications, direct measurements of BF% would be a better tool for diagnosing obesity. Moreover, BF% has been ...

Effects of Exercise, Physical Activity and Adiposity on Brain Health. Teaching and Research Interests. Dr. Krista Lisdahl is the Director of the UWM's Brain Imaging and Neuropsychology (BraIN) Laboratory. The primary focus of her research is on the neurocognitive consequences of chronic drug use during adolescence and emerging adulthood and predictors of substance use onset in youth. More specifically, using magnetic resonance imaging (structural MRI, fMRI and DTI) and neuropsychological assessment, Dr. Lisdahl's laboratory examines the effects of chronic marijuana, alcohol, nicotine and ecstasy use on brain structure and function. We also attempt to explain individual differences by examining whether genetics, gender or lifestyle factors such as aerobic exercise, physical activity, or adiposity ...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of dietary patterns (DP) with maternal adiposity indicators, leptin, adiponectin and insulin concentrations during pregnancy. A prospective cohort of pregnant women followed up at the 5th-13th, 20th -26th and 30th-36th gestational weeks and 30-40 d postpartum was conducted in Rio de Janeiro. A FFQ was administered in the third trimester (30th-36th gestational weeks). The reduced rank regression procedure was used to identify DP that explain response variables (dietary fibre and total fat) related to indicators of maternal adiposity (postpartum weight retention and gestational weight gain (GWG) adequacy), and plasma leptin, adiponectin and insulin concentrations ...

Our results demonstrate that HF-feeding in animals prone to obesity results in impaired GLP-1 satiation signaling. Specifically, OP animals maintained on the HE/HF diet exhibit decreased sensitivity to the satiating effects of Ex-4, a GLP-1R agonist, compared with OR rats fed a similar diet or their counterparts fed chow. Furthermore, and similar to previous studies, we found that during HE/HF-feeding, OP rats gained significantly more weight, had increased body adiposity, and consumed more calories during 24 h than OR rats (4,5). Increased energy intake in HE/HF-fed OP rats is a function of increased meal size (4), indicating an inability of OP rats to effectively suppress appetite and calorie intake after a meal. Indeed, diet-induced obese rats exhibit decreased sensitivity to intraintestinal lipid-induced satiation compared with diet-resistant rats, an effect associated with diminished GLP-1 protein expression in the intestinal epithelium (5).. Fat is a potent GLP-1 secretagogue (12), and ...

Limited research has been conducted that elucidates the growth and body composition of preterm infants. It is known that these infants do not necessarily achieve extra-utero growth rates and body composition similar to those of their term counterparts. Preterm infants, who have difficulty in achieving these growth rates, could suffer from growth failure. These infants display an increased intra-abdominal adiposity and abnormal body composition when they achieve catch-up growth. These factors affect the quality of weight gain, as these infants are not only shorter and lighter than term infants, they also have more fat mass (FM) and less fat-free mass (FFM), resulting in a higher total fat percentage ...

NZO is an inbred strain originally selected in New Zealand for polygenic obesity (10). NZO neonates have high birth weights, and mice of both sexes are large and, at weaning, exhibit an elevated carcass fat content (11). The adiposity is more reflective of adipocyte hypertrophy than hyperplasia (12). NZO males develop hypertension when fed a diet with increased fat content (13). NZO mice have not been extensively studied because they are difficult to breed and only recently have been available from commercial suppliers. Because the obesity is polygenic, there is no simple control (although NZW and NZB are closely related nonobese strains and share certain hematological anomalies with NZO) (14). Diabetes frequencies vary among the various NZO substrains. The NZO/Wehi stock develops comparable obesity as observed in NZO/Hl and NZO/HlLt mice (15); however, only males of the latter two strains develop chronic nonfasting hyperglycemia. Approximately, 50% of group-caged virgin NZO/Hl and NZO/HlLt ...
