  1. Effect of urine urea nitrogen and protein intake adjusted by using the estimated urine creatinine excretion rate on the antiproteinuric effect of angiotensin II type I receptor blockers

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1333 (2015) PMID 26304595

    Objectives The aim of this study was to determine the role of protein intake on proteinuria in chronic kidney disease (CKD), as it is presently not conclusive.
  2. Hypercholesterolemia-induced ocular disorder: Ameliorating role of phytotherapy

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1307 (2015) PMID 26429651

    The ocular region is a complex structure that allows conscious light perception and vision. It is of ecto-mesodermal origin. Cholesterol and polyunsaturated fatty acids are involved in retinal cell function; however, hypercholesterolemia and diabetes impair its function. Retinal damage...
  3. Oxidative damage and antioxidant defense in thymus of malnourished lactating rats

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1408 (2015) PMID 26429663

    Objective Malnutrition has been associated with oxidative damage by altered antioxidant protection mechanisms. Specifically, the aim of this study was to evaluate oxidative damage (DNA and lipid) and antioxidant status (superoxide dismutase [SOD], glutathione peroxidase [GPx]...
  4. Selenium status in preschool children receiving a Brazil nut–enriched diet

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1339 (2015) PMID 26429652

    Objective The Brazilian Amazon region has selenium (Se)-rich soil, which is associated with higher Se levels in populations fed locally grown produce. Brazil nuts are a major source of dietary Se and are included with meals offered to children enrolled in public preschool in ...
  5. A glance at … telomeres, oxidative stress, antioxidants, and biological aging

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1447 (2015) PMID 26429668

    • Increased systemic oxidative stress contributes to accelerated telomere attrition. • Accelerated telomere attrition is associated with accelerated cellular aging...
  6. Association between basal metabolic function and bone metabolism in postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1394 (2015) PMID 26429661

    Objective Diabetes is a risk factor for osteoporosis, and glycemic control is critical during osteoporosis treatment in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, diabetic therapies have potentially adverse effects on bone metabolism. Additionally, biomarkers for bone meta...
  7. Association between oral feeding intolerance and quality of life in acute pancreatitis: A prospective cohort study

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1379 (2015) PMID 26429659

    Objective Oral feeding intolerance (OFI) is a common complication of nutritional management in acute pancreatitis (AP) and is associated with significantly worse clinical outcomes and increased cost of treatment. However, changes in patient-reported outcomes associated with O...
  8. Association of nutritional risk and adverse medical outcomes across different medical inpatient populations

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1385 (2015) PMID 26429660

    Objective The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of nutritional risk and its association with multiple adverse clinical outcomes in a large cohort of acutely ill medical inpatients from a Swiss tertiary care hospital.
  9. Obstructive sleep apnea is independently associated with inflammation and insulin resistance, but not with blood pressure, plasma catecholamines, and endothelial function in obese subjects

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1351 (2015) PMID 26429654

    Objectives Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Several of the proposed mechanisms for the development of CVD in OSA are similar to those proposed for the increased risk of CVD in obesity, so that it is difficult ...
  10. Patient Generated Subjective Global Assessment as a prognosis tool in women with gynecologic cancer

    Nutrition 31(11-12):1372 (2015) PMID 26429658

    Objectives The aim of this study was to assess the nutritional status (NS) of women hospitalized for gynecologic tumors and relate it to such outcomes as hospital length of stay and 1-y mortality.
