Correlation between serum leptin and its gene expression to the anthropometric measures in overweight and obese children.

Correlation between serum leptin and its gene expression to the anthropometric measures in overweight and obese children. Cell Mol Biol (Noisy-le-grand). 2018 Jan 31;64(1):84-90 Authors: Eldosouky MK, Abdu Allah AM, AbdElmoneim A, Al-Ahmadi NS Abstract Obesity is a multifactor disorder with evidence supporting the role of the genetic factor in its etiology. The present study evaluates the relationship between leptin G2548A (rs7799039) and leptin receptors (Gln223Arg (rs1137101) genotyping and its leptin level and the risk of childhood obesity. This case-control study was conducted on 168 overweight and obese Saudi children and 126 non obese one served as control. Fasting insulin, leptin, blood glucose, lipid profile levels were measured. HOMA- IR, and BMI were assessed. Genotyping of leptin and leptin receptor gene variants was done by SNP real-time PCR method. GG genotype and G allele of rs1137101 were significantly higher in overweight and obese children than controls. It showed significant association with risk of obesity OR 7.1 [ 95% CI: 3.4 - 14.8] and OR 2.8 [ 95% CI: 2.0 - 4.1] respectively. Leptin level was significantly greater in patients than controls (p<0.000*) with GG and AG genotypes having the highest level of leptin when compared with another genotype in the obese group. As regards, rs7799039 AA genotype showed significant higher leptin level than other genotypes in the same group with a non-significant difference in genotypes distribut...

In conclusion, screening uptake is negatively associated with unfavourable behaviours and health conditions that are also risk factors for breast and colorectal cancer incidence. Socioeconomic characteristics do not fully explain these differences. Health promotion interventions targeting diet and physical activity nested in screening programmes might miss part of the at-risk population.

Data (N = 358,218) were from the 2017 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. Outcomes included asthma, arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cognitive impairment, CVD, and kidney disease. Risk factors (RF) were obesity, ever smoking, sedentary lifestyle, and inadequate fruit and vegetable con...

Losing weight requires a person to eat fewer calories than their body burns. This typically involves eating less and exercising more. However, some foods and supplements may stimulate the metabolism to naturally burn more fat. Learn more about natural fat burners here.

Publication date: Available online 15 January 2019Source: Pharmacological ResearchAuthor(s): Waleska Dornas, Vincent LagenteAbstractFatty livers are susceptible to factors that cause inflammation and fibrosis, but fat deposition and the inflammatory response can be dissociated. While nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), caused by pathologic fat accumulation inside the liver, can remain stable for several years, in other cases NAFLD progresses to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which is characterized by fat accumulation and inflammation and is not a benign condition. In this review, we discuss the NASH host cells ...

DISCUSSION: Our data suggest that dietary non-heme iron deficiency may be a modulating factor in the pathogenesis of peripheral neuropathy in obese ob/ob mice with metabolic syndrome. Once the mechanisms can be further elucidated, how low dietary iron augments peripheral nerve degeneration and dysfunction via pro-inflammatory pathways and new therapeutic strategies could be developed.
