(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.

ConclusionsLEL patients had significantly more visceral fat and increased levels of insulin, UA and ferritin, which are closely related with metabolic disorders. This study indicates that the increased epidural fat in the spinal canal seen in the LEL patients is associated with metabolic syndrome.Graphical abstractThese slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary material.

Conclusions: Children fed a preterm formula postdischarge more often showed early rapid growth than did breastfed children, and early rapid growth was correlated with early signs of MetS at 6 y of age. However, all of the values were within normal ranges. This trial was registered at as NCT02078687. PMID: 29722837 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Impaired microvascular function in adipose tissue during T2D is not conditionally linked to systemic inflammation but is associated with other characteristics of the metabolic syndrome (obesity, insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, and dyslipidemia).

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate a fully-automated CT-based adiposity tool, applying it to a longitudinal adult screening cohort. METHODS: A validated automated adipose tissue segmentation algorithm was applied to non-contrast abdominal CT scans in 8852 consecutive asymptomatic adults (mean age, 57.1 years; 3926M/4926F) undergoing colonography screening. The tool was also applied to follow-up CT scans in a subset of 1584 individuals undergoing longitudinal surveillance (mean interval, 5.6 years). Visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue (VAT and SAT) volumes were segmented at levels T12-L5. Primary adipose ...

Psoriasis may be associated with metabolic syndrome and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.; Patients with psoriasis had increased hepatic, splenic, and arterial inflammation, which decreased with ustekinumab therapy.; Ustekinumab treatment was significantly associated with decreased systemic and vascular inflammation related to metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease among patients with psoriasis.
