Molecular effects of dietary fatty acids on brain insulin action and mitochondrial function.

Molecular effects of dietary fatty acids on brain insulin action and mitochondrial function. Biol Chem. 2018 Dec 01;: Authors: Chudoba C, Wardelmann K, Kleinridders A Abstract The prevalence of obesity and its co-morbidities such as insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes are tightly linked to increased ingestion of palatable fat enriched food. Thus, it seems intuitive that the brain senses elevated amounts of fatty acids and affects adaptive metabolic response, which is connected to mitochondrial function and insulin signaling. This review will address the effect of dietary fatty acids on brain insulin and mitochondrial function with a special emphasis on the impact of different fatty acids on brain function and metabolism.

This study defines a new clinically relevant concept of T-cell senescence-mediated inflammatory responses in the pathophysiology of abnormal glucose homeostasis. We also found that T-cell senescence is associated with systemic inflammation and alters hepatic glucose homeostasis. The rational modulation of T-cell senescence would be a promising avenue for the treatment or prevention of diabetes. Intron Retention via Alternative Splicing as a Signature of Aging In recent years researchers have inv...

In this study, we investigated the effect of trehalose on the development of NASH in the Tsumura Suzuki Obese Diabetes (TSOD) mouse, a metabolic syndrome model characterized by obesity, type 2 diabetes, and NASH. We found that trehalose intake markedly inhibited histopathological features of NASH, particularly hepatic steatosis and liver cell injury, in TSOD mice. Trehalose intake attenuated increase in mesenteric adipose tissue weight, impaired glucose tolerance, and iron deposition in the duodenum, suggesting that trehalose prevents insulin resistance and iron absorption in TSOD mice. These findings indicate that trehalo...

Authors: Wrzosek M, Sawicka A, Wrzosek M, Piątkiewicz P, Tałałaj M, Nowicka G Abstract Introduction: Interaction between obesity and genetic factors involved in the regulatory pathways of glucose homeostasis may play a significant role in diabetes development in the obese. The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between the TCF7L2 rs7903146 polymorphism, adiponectin levels, age at onset of obesity and the occurrence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in a sample of obese Polish adults. Material and methods: A total of 474 unrelated obese subjects were included in this study. Real-time PCR was used to...

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.

ConclusionsThese data suggested that JLD could improve metabolic disorders in associated with activation of BAT thermogenesis via enhancement of mitochondrial biogenesis and fatty acid oxidation metabolism, thus providing a new pharmacological evidence for the clinical usage of JLD in T2DM treatment.

ConclusionsAmong the Faroese populations studied, the prevalence of type 2 diabetes increased with age and was more prevalent among men. The detected prevalence was comparable to other Nordic countries for all age-groups.

This study was designed to assess whether changes in DD are associated with HbA1c change beyond BMI change in individuals with prediabetes. Hierarchical regression showed changes in BMI (p = 0.008) and the $1000 DD task (p = 0.04) were associated with HbA1c change beyond demographic characteristics, with the full model accounting for 25.8% of the variance. Those with greater BMI increases and greater increases in discounting of the future showed the greatest increases in HbA1c. DD represents a novel target to pre vent progression from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes.

Obesity is one of the major pandemics of the 21st century. In 2013 –2014, the prevalence of obesity in the US was>35% among men and 40% among women [1]. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 39% of men and 39% of women were overweight, and 11% of men and 15% of women were obese in 2016. Thus, approximately 2 billion adults worldwide were overweight and, among them, more than half a billion were obese [2]. Obesity is a chronic disease adversely affecting the quality of life and is associated with many comorbidities, like hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes (T2DM), cardiovascular disease (CVD), n...

This study examined the safety and efficacy of a commercially available low-energy diet in insulin-treated obese men with type 2 diabetes.MethodsEighteen men ≥ 35 years old who had class III obesity, had received insulin treatment for ≥ 1 year for type 2 diabetes, and had glycated hemoglobin (Hb) ≥ 6.5% were randomized to receive either a low-energy diet (N = 9) or standard medical nutrition intervention (N = 9) for 6 months.ResultsCompared with 1.5% ( ± 3.55) in the control group, the mean percentage weight loss in the intervention grou...
