Study Design. Retrospective analysis wherein 103 patients were considered, and 76 patients were included: 49 were classified as chronic non-specific low back pain (CNSLBP) (Study group) and 27 had identifiable cases of specific chronic low back pain (LBP) (Control group). Objective. Elucidate markers of systemic inflammation in patients with CNSLBP. Summary of Background Data. Mechanisms of LBP are poorly understood. Pro-inflammatory cytokines are increased in obesity and involved with pain modulation; we previously proposed a theoretical model of their mediating role in LBP. Methods. Demographic information was...

A morbidly-obese 57-year-old diabetic and hypertensive man with chronic kidney disease, diastolic heart failure, and bilateral hearing loss was found to have soft tissue masses/densities in the lateral aspect of both auditory canals on local examination and on imaging. He underwent biopsies of both ear canal masses and histologic examination revealed amyloid deposits in the dermis. These deposits were confirmed as AL (amyloid light chain) kappa-type amyloid by laser mass spectrometry. A systemic work-up showed plasma cell dyscrasia with 9% kappa light chain restricted plasma cells in the bone marrow as well as amyloid depo...

Cold exposure promotes obesity and impairs glucose homeostasis in mice subjected to a high‑fat diet. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Aug 10;: Authors: Zhu P, Zhang ZH, Huang XF, Shi YC, Khandekar N, Yang HQ, Liang SY, Song ZY, Lin S Abstract Cold exposure is considered to be a form of stress and has various adverse effects on the body. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of chronic daily cold exposure on food intake, body weight, serum glucose levels and the central energy balance regulatory pathway in mice fed with a high‑fat diet (HFD). C57BL/6 mice were divided into two groups, which were fed w...

Authors: Feng EC, Jiang L Abstract Preterm infants face lifelong disabilities, including learning disorders, as well as visual, auditory and behavioral problems. Recent studies have demonstrated that leptin, an adipocytokine encoded by a gene associated with obesity and expressed in adipose tissue, affects neurocognitive and motor function; however, the mechanisms of brain damage in preterm infants are unclear. In the present study, the neuroprotective effects of leptin in a rat model of preterm hypoxic‑ischemic brain damage were investigated. Rats (2‑days‑old) were subjected to brain damage (ligation of the ...

This study aims at determining effects of long-term nitrate administration on obesity indices in normal adult female rats.MethodsFemale Wistar rats were divided into four groups (n = 10/each): i.e. control group received tap water and three treatment groups received water containing 50, 100 and 150 mg/L sodium nitrate for 6 months. Body weight (g), naso-anal length (cm) and obesity indices including body mass index (BMI), Lee index, abdominal and thoracic circumferences were determined every two months. Both white adipose tissue (WAT) and brown adipose tissue (BAT) were weighted and then adiposity index was calcula...

Publication date: Available online 15 August 2018Source: Journal of Contextual Behavioral ScienceAuthor(s): Emma Wallin, Thomas Parling, Sandra Weineland, Joanne DahlAbstractAlthough overweight is typically associated with lower quality of life, weight loss in itself does not necessarily improve quality of life. Therefore, there is an increase of studies investigating the effect of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to promote values-based behavior among people with overweight. However, few have evaluated the use of brief self-help interventions with minimal therapist support. The aim of the present study was to evalu...

Conclusions: Higher hs-CRP as a marker of low-grade inflammation was detected in prepubertal children exposed to maternal GDM, but no differences were seen in height, weight, BMI, or markers of glucose and lipid metabolism compared to control children. This finding may reflect an ongoing process of metabolic changes in children born after a GDM pregnancy.Horm Res Paediatr

Publication date: Available online 15 August 2018Source: SteroidsAuthor(s): Julius Fink, Masahito Matsumoto, Yoshifumi TamuraAbstractSedentary lifestyle and over-nutrition are the main causes of obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, the same causes are major triggers of hypogonadism. Many T2D patients show low testosterone levels while hypogonadal men seem to be prone to become diabetic. Testosterone plays a major role in the regulation of muscle mass, adipose tissue, inflammation and insulin sensitivity and is therefore indirectly regulating several metabolic pathways, while T2D is commonly triggered by insulin resi...
