Assessing Early Growth and Adiposity: Report from an EarlyNutrition Academy Workshop.
This report provides a summary of a workshop organised by the European Commission-funded EarlyNutrition Project and the EarlyNutrition Academy. Accurate and reliable methods to assess body composition are needed in research on prenatal and early post-natal influences of nutrition on later health bec...
Differences in the association between serum leptin levels and body mass index in black and white women: a report from the Southern Communit...
Leptin may be an important link between obesity and many high-burden diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular disease, but leptin levels and correlates in individuals of diverse racial backgrounds have not been well characterized despite racial differences in incidence and mortality patterns fo...
The evaluation of body composition: a useful tool for clinical practice.
Undernutrition is insufficiently detected in in- and outpatients, and this is likely to worsen during the next decades. The increased prevalence of obesity together with chronic illnesses associated with fat-free mass (FFM) loss will result in an increased prevalence of sarcopenic ob...
Folic Acid and other potential measures in the prevention of neural tube defects.
Neural tube defects (NTD) are common congenital malformations leading to severe disability or even death. The causes of NTD are multifactorial, including genetic predisposition, nutritional and environmental risk factors, and other maternal conditions. Some countries have introduced...
High prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in Zahedan, southeast Iran.
Several studies show a high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in Asia. Data regarding the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in southeast Iran are inadequate. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in Zahedan, a sunny area in southeast Iran. This population...
Elevated levels of triglyceride and triglyceride-rich lipoprotein triglyceride induced by a high-carbohydrate diet is associated with polymo...
Both polymorphisms may play an important role in the elevated TG and TRL-TG levels induced by the HC/LF diet, especially in females, thus indicating a potential dietary prevention of coronary heart disease in this Chinese cohort. Copyright © 2011 S. Karger AG, Basel....
Plasma visfatin is increased after high-intensity exercise.
We investigated the effects of repeated short bouts of high-intensity exercise on plasma visfatin and related metabolic responses. Six young, physically fit men (22.8 +/- 2.3 years; 78.5 +/- 2.3 kg; and body mass index 22.1 +/- 1.2) performed a single session of a running-based anaerobic sprint exer...
Nutritional counseling for diabetic patients: a pilot study in hungarian primary care.
Although nutritional advice and counseling are an important part of diabetes care, current Hungarian health care regulations make it available only in the secondary (specialist) care. Authors planned and implemented a self-financed nutritional counseling in primary care setting. For...
Regional body composition of Indian women from a low-income group and its association with anthropometric indices and reproductive events.
The study examined the body composition of women from an urban slum who have a low prevalence of obesity. Since the quantification of regional fat distribution is important for evaluating health risks, the regional body composition was assessed in relation to anthropometric indices and reproductive...
The use of prealbumin concentration as a biomarker of nutritional status in treated phenylketonuric patients.
We collected data from 69 phenylketonuric patients on food intake, blood prealbumin and blood phenylalanine concentrations. Protein insufficiency was defined as prealbumin z-scores below the 5th percentile of reference population. Additionally, we considered a prealbumin concentration of 20 mg/dl as...
