The Role of Laparoscopic Mini-Gastric Bypass in Management of Metabolic Syndrome

Conclusion Laparoscopic mini gastric bypass is an effective procedure for the treatment of obesity, HTN, type 2 DM and dyslipidemia, technically feasible, safe operation with a low rate of major postoperative complications.

Authors: Klujszo EH, Parcheta P, Witkowska AB, Krecisz B Abstract Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common liver pathology in the western countries. Psoriatic patients are at higher risk of having NAFLD, and at higher risk of experiencing a more severe form of the disease with poorer outcomes. The components of the metabolic syndrome - obesity, lipid abnormalities, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes - significantly correlate with NAFLD progression. The inflammatory state present in psoriasis plays a significant role in development of NAFLD and the metabolic syndrome. All patients with psoriasis a...

This article provides an up-to-date review of the manifestations of neuropathy seen in the setting of diabetes and other metabolic disorders. RECENT FINDINGS Although a number of metabolic disorders cause or are associated with peripheral neuropathy, the neuropathies associated with glucose dysregulation make up the vast majority of cases. Recent investigations have determined major differences in the neuropathies associated with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Neuropathy in type 1 diabetes is closely linked to glycemic control, whereas neuropathy in type 2 diabetes is linked to dyslipidemia, central obesity, hypertension, ...

In conclusion, it remains unclear if brain-specific regional and temporal changes occur in the expression of the different APP variants during AD progression. Since APP is also found in blood cells, assessing the changes in APP mRNA expression in peripheral blood cells from AD patients has been considering an alternative. However, again the quantification of APP mRNA in peripheral blood cells has generated controversial results. Brain APP protein has been analyzed in only a few studies, probably as it is difficult to interpret the complex pattern of APP variants and fragments. We previously characterized the soluabl...

I recently collaborated on a review paper covering the history of clinical work on upregulation of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) as an approach to therapy. This is of interest to the aging research community because NAD is important to mitochondrial function. NAD levels diminish with age, alongside a loss of mitochondrial function that is known to contribute to the onset and progression of many age-related conditions. Animal studies and a few clinical trials have indicated that increased NAD levels may improve, for example, cardiovascular function in older individuals, as a result of improved mitochondrial functi...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that the proportion of total energy supplied by CHO and FAT can have a causal effect on the risk of metabolic diseases via the epigenetic status of CPT1A.Study registration at https://www.clinicaltrials.gov/: the Genetics of Lipid Lowering Drugs and Diet Network (GOLDN)-NCT01023750; and the Framingham Heart Study (FHS)-NCT00005121.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Exposure to environmental endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) may play an important role in the epidemic of metabolic diseases. Epigenetic alterations may functionally link EDCs with gene expression and metabolic traits. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to evaluate metabolic-related effects of the exposure to endocrine disruptors including five parabens, three bisphenols, and 13 metabolites of nine phthalates as measured in 24-hour urine on epigenome-wide DNA methylation. METHODS: A blood-based epigenome-wide association study was performed in 622 participants from the Lifelines DEEP cohort us...

AbstractIn this review, we consider the diverse risk factors in diabetes patients beyond hyperglycemia that are being recognized as contributors to diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). Interest in such alternative mechanisms has been encouraged by the recognition that neuropathy occurs in subjects with metabolic syndrome and pre-diabetes and by the reporting of several large clinical studies that failed to show reduced prevalence of neuropathy after intensive glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes. Animal models of obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and other disorders common to both pre-diabetes and diabetes ...

In this study, we sought to elucidate the role of VRK-1 in regulation of adult life span in C. elegans. We found that overexpression of VRK-1::GFP (green fluorescent protein), which was detected in the nuclei of cells in multiple somatic tissues, including the intestine, increased life span. Conversely, genetic inhibition of vrk-1 decreased life span. We further showed that vrk-1 was essential for the increased life span of mitochondrial respiratory mutants. We demonstrated that VRK-1 was responsible for increasing the level of active and phosphorylated form of AMPK, thus promoting longevity. A Fisetin Variant, C...
