ConclusionOur study suggests a VDR-mediated metabolic cross-talk between gut and adipose tissue, which significantly contributes to systemic lipid homeostasis. These results have important implications for use of the intestinal VDR as a therapeutic target for obesity and associated disorders.
Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: MitochondrionAuthor(s): Hamza El Hadi, Roberto Vettor, Marco RossatoAbstractCardiovascular disease is the leading cause of diabetes-related morbidity and mortality. It is widely accepted that heart failure risk is increased in diabetic patients even after adjusting for coronary artery disease and hypertension. Mitochondria are the center of fatty acid (FA) and glucose metabolism and thus are likely to be impacted by impaired metabolism associated with diabetes. Although the cause of this increased heart failure risk is multifactorial, increasing evidence points toward...

Conclusion: Therefore, considering the role of myonectin in increasing fatty acid uptake, exercise training can play an essential role in decreasing obesity-related diseases and metabolic syndrome; this effect is partly related to the roles of myonectin. Therefore, the use of this type of exercise is recommended to reduce the risk of diseases associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome. PMID: 30894898 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Triglycerides do not impair the interpretation of HbA1c assay. Patients and clinicians can now be confident that hypertriglyceridemia is not an important factor when interpreting HbA1c results. PMID: 30891069 [PubMed]
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Volume 119, Issue 4Author(s): Dori Steinberg, Melissa Kay, Jasmine Burroughs, Laura P. Svetkey, Gary G. BennettAbstractBackgroundObesity treatment focuses primarily on reducing overall caloric intake with limited focus on improving diet quality. The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) dietary pattern is effective in managing hypertension and other chronic conditions, yet it is not clear whether behavioral weight control interventions improve DASH adherence. We conducted a post hoc analysis of a behavioral weight loss intervent...
Abstract: Prediabetes continues to be a national and worldwide health concern, affecting 84 million adults in the US. Early identification and intervention have been successful in delaying and/or preventing the progression to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). To curb the increasing prevalence of T2DM, recognizing the importance of identifying and managing prediabetes is paramount.
