AbstractLipocalin ‐2 (LCN2) is a secreted glycoprotein involved in several chronic inflammatory processes. Metabolic syndrome (MetS) and adult growth hormone deficiency (GHD) are known as chronic inflammatory conditions. The primary objective of this observational cross‐sectional study was to compare LCN2 plasmat ic levels in these clinical settings, whereas the secondary objective was to investigate any possible correlation between LCN2 and BMI and/or indexes of insulin sensitivity/resistance. Seventy‐four patients were divided as follows: Group A, MetS (18 patients, 13 females and 5 males, mean ±&thin...

Authors: Shibayama Y, Wada N, Baba S, Obara S, Sakai H, Usubuchi H, Terae S, Nakamura A, Atsumi T Abstract Patients with primary aldosteronism (PA) are complicated by metabolic syndrome more frequently than those without PA. Hyperaldosteronism has been reported to be associated with a higher prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). We aimed to clarify the risk factors for hepatic steatosis in the two subtypes of PA, comparing the status of hepatic steatosis in each of these subtypes. This was a retrospective observational study. We enrolled patients with an aldosterone producing adenoma (APA) (n = 3...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a global disease that is a manifestation of metabolic syndrome. Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT), a special type of visceral adipose tissue, has been proposed to be an independent predictor of visceral adiposity. Both OSA and EAT have a close association with diabetes and coronary artery disease. Whether EAT thickness is associated with OSA is controversial.

Purpose of review The aim of this article is to describe the benefits of physical activity and exercise on rheumatoid arthritis disease activity, functioning, and symptoms; and offer recommendations for promotion of physical activity and exercise among people with rheumatoid arthritis. Recent findings In addition to well-known benefits of exercise such as improving cardiovascular health and metabolic syndrome and reducing obesity, exercise has consistently shown rheumatoid arthritis-specific benefits. Exercise and increases in physical activity improve clinically measured disease activity, reduce symptoms such as fati...

AbstractIntroductionInsulin resistance (IR) plays a central role in pathogenesis of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The aim of this study was to correlate histopathological grading and IR in overweight/obese patients with NASH as compared with lean NASH.MethodsPatients with NASH who underwent liver biopsy between January 2012 and December 2012 were included. Anthropometric, clinical, and biochemical features, necro-inflammatory grades, and fibrosis stage on liver biopsies were scored according to Brunt and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) activity score (NAS).ResultsOf 42 patients, 33 (78.6%) had body mass in...
