Yoga benefits patients with metabolic syndrome

(Wiley) In a recent Scandinavian Journal of Medicine&Science in Sports study, one year of yoga training decreased pro-inflammatory adipokines and increased an anti-inflammatory adipokine in adults with metabolic syndrome and high-normal blood pressure.

AbstractAimsThe metabolic syndrome (MetS) is composed of a cluster of related cardiovascular risk factors. The aim of the present study was to determine how MetS contributes to short ‐ (30‐day) and long‐term complications and restenosis after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) or stenting (CAS).MethodsA consecutive cohort of 752 patients undergoing CEA (n  = 314) and CAS (n = 438) in a single institution was examined, of which 296 (39.4%) were identified as having MetS. All patients were followed‐up with carotid duplex ultrasound scan of the supraaortic vessels and a neurological assessment of symptom...

CONCLUSIONS: 1.Hunger and satiety are mediated by an interplay of nervous and endocrine signals. 2. Healthy adipose tissue secretion of adipokines is coordinated in an anti-inflammatory, insulin-sensitizing and cardioprotective pattern. However, with increasing fat mass this secretion pattern is changed into a proinflammatory, insulin resistant, atherogenic and fatal systemic environment . 3. Bariatric surgery is not a solution of the obesity problem for everyone. 4. Long term postsurgical observations of the hormonal profile changes are necessary and should be obligatory.

In this report, we propose that the molecular mechanisms of beneficial actions of CR should be classified and discussed according to whether they operate under rich or insufficient energy resource conditions. Future studies of the molecular mechanisms of the beneficial actions of CR should also consider the extent to which the signals/factors involved contribute to the anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and other CR actions in each tissue or organ, and thereby lead to anti-aging and prolongevity.

ConclusionsNAFLD could be dealt with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, preventing its progression into cirrhosis. SG can be performed in patients with obesity and metabolic syndrome, with NAFLD showing satisfactory results 12  months after surgery. NAFLD should be a formal indication for bariatric surgery.

Conclusion: Dyslipidemia is common in overweight, obese children. FLD is prevalent in those with elevated liver transaminases. WC is an easy tool that can be utilized to screen for dyslipidemia and FLD in overweight and obese children. PMID: 30009050 [PubMed - in process]

Fasting blood glucose is the current protocol for assessing metabolic impairment. However, recent studies have shown young adults may have normal fasting blood glucose levels with underlying irregularities in postprandial glucose regulation, insulin secretion and cortisol release, which causes a ...
