Chapter 11: Metabolic Syndrome, Diet and Exercise

Publication date: Available online 10 February 2016 Source:Best Practice & Research Clinical Obstetrics & Gynaecology Author(s): Sunita MC. De Sousa, Robert J. Norman AO Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is associated with a range of metabolic complications including insulin resistance, obesity, dyslipidaemia, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnoea and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. These compound risks result in a high prevalence of metabolic syndrome and possibly increased cardiovascular disease. As the cardiometabolic risk of PCOS is shared amongst the different diagnostic systems, all women with PCOS should undergo metabolic surveillance though the precise approach differs between guidelines. Lifestyle interventions consisting of increased physical activity and caloric restriction have been shown to improve both metabolic and reproductive outcomes. Pharmacotherapy and bariatric surgery may be considered in resistant metabolic disease. Issues requiring further research include the natural history of PCOS-associated metabolic disease, absolute cardiovascular risk, and comparative efficacy of lifestyle interventions.

Publication date: Available online 9 December 2019Source: Journal of Membrane ScienceAuthor(s): Miao Tian, Yuan Liao, Rong WangAbstractIn recent years, novel superwetting membranes have gained popularity for oily wastewater treatments via synergy between surface chemistry and topography. However, the water fluxes of the superwetting membranes normally decrease rapidly due to pore clogging and surface fouling, especially when treating surfactant-stabilized oil-in-water emulsions. Herein, a facile strategy is proposed to develop a superwetting thin film nanofibrous composite (TFNC) membrane with remarkable antifouling and se...
