Using the Behaviour Change Wheel for Designing an Online Platform for Healthy Weight Loss - "POEmaS".

CONCLUSION: The BCW provided a framework for an evidence-based intervention on weight loss delivered by a web platform. Using the framework led to a clear understanding of the behaviour determinants and their relation to the platform features. PMID: 30306951 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to measure the effects of duodenal-jejunal exclusion (DJE) on glycometabolism in non-obese type 2 diabetic rats, and to investigate the mechanisms. Goto–Kakizaki(GK) rats and Sprague–Dawley(SD) rats were divided into DJE operation groups and sham operation groups respectively. The glucose relative parameters were measured before and after operation. 8 weeks postoperation, the levels of the key regulators of intestinal gluconeogenesis and the crucial proteins of hepatic insulin signaling were evaluated. Postoperatively, the concentration of blood glucose declined and the insulin sensitivity was ...

Some are yet to be proven as appropriate regarding its physical or mental side effect. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between weight control success and depression by weight control behaviors (WCB) dividing them into appropriate and inappropriate.Subjects/MethodsWe used data from the 2016 Korea National Health and Nutrition Ex...

CONCLUSION: The goal to reach a healthy weight is difficult. It is recommended that agencies that work with overweight and obesity problems provide people with the knowledge, strategies, alternatives, and needed activities from a biopsychosocial perspective to help adolescents with this health condition to be successful in reaching and keeping a healthy weight.

Publication date: Available online 15 December 2018Source: Molecular Aspects of MedicineAuthor(s): Denise Hoch, Martin Gauster, Sylvie Hauguel-de Mouzon, Gernot DesoyeAbstractEarly pregnancy is characterized by a series of complex and tightly regulated events to ultimately establish implantation and early placental development. One of the key events is the opening of the decidual spiral arteries into the intervillous space. It leads to a rise in oxygen tension in the intervillous space and the placenta and will induce transcriptional and translational changes of oxygen-sensitive molecules including antioxidants.Diabetes an...
