Positive predictive value between medical-chart body-mass-index category and obesity versus codes in a claims-data warehouse.
CONCLUSIONS: BMI categories derived from administrative claims, when available, can be used successfully particularly in the context of obesity research. PMID: 28795870 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
The objective of the present study was to observe the effect of sitagliptin on obese patients with insulin treatment-induced diabetes mellitus. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 120 obese patients with insulin treatment-induced diabetes mellitus were consecutively selected and divided into the control group (n=35), observation group 1 (n=40), and observation group 2 (n=45). The control group received different types or doses of insulin, observation group 1 received insulin combined with metformin, and observation group 2 received insulin combined with sitagliptin. The therapeutic effects were compared at the 6-month fol...
New York City dietitian Jennifer Medina tells Daily Mail Online how to take a proactive approach to avoid college weight gain as obesity rates skyrocket among youths in the United States.

Through an age-, and gender-matched case-control study, we determined the association of T. gondii infection and obesity using serological and molecular methods. Cases included 203 persons with obesity, and controls included 203 persons without obesity. Participants were tested for the presence of anti-Toxoplas...
Research, published inNeurolmage, suggests that reduced activity in the self-regulation centre of the brain could be a better predictor of obesity than heightened responses of reward systems to food cues in teenagers.Science Daily
Here we report a successful percutaneous endovascular retrieval of a VenaTech LP inferior vena cava (IVC) filter (B. Braun, Evanston, Illinois) that had migrated to the right ventricle in a morbidly obese patient who presented with chest pain. Case reports such as this are exempt from institutional review board approval.
Conclusions: The present study has confirmed high levels of overweight and obesity in Maltese children. It also provides proof of concept of scalability by demonstrating the feasibility of undertaking a relatively inexpensive study of an entire childhood population. The modus operandi (utilizing physical education teachers) could relatively easily be up scaled for any country.
(Florida Atlantic University) A number of factors, including obesity, shorten the lifespan for those with schizophrenia by 20 years and by 10 years for those with bipolar disorder compared to the general population. In the first study to compare long-term weight gain across psychotic disorders, researchers from FAU show that expanding waistlines and the way body fat is distributed are largely to blame.
In this study, we evaluated effects of O. gratissimum extract (OGE) in preventing obesity by using ovariectomized (OVX) animal models to mimic menopausal women. Methods: OVX rats showed increase in body weight and in adipocyte size in perigonadal adipose tissue (p

The aim of our study was to assess the expression of thermogenic genes (Uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma coactivator 1-alpha (PGC1α), and PR-domain-missing 16 (...
Conclusion: PBMCs β2AR, underexpressed in centrally obese, are associated with a better metabolic profile and showed a protective role for the development of CO. The discovery of β2AR as a new molecular marker of obesity subphenotypes in PBMCs might contribute to clarify the adrenergic immunomodulation of inflammatory obesity.
