Does social globalisation through access to information communication technologies drive obesity among youth? An empirical analysis, 1990 –2013
Authors: Sarikaya I, Albatineh A, Sarikaya A Abstract Aim: Standardized uptake value (SUV) normalized by body weight is affected by amount of body fat. Higher (overestimated) SUV is measured in normal tissues and lesions in obese patients than the patients with normal body mass index (BMI). SUV calculated/normalized by lean body mass (LBM, fat free body mass) (SUVLBM or SUL) instead of total weight is recommended to provide more accurate SUV results. Given importance of a quantitative PET parameter particularly when comparing PET studies, in this study we aimed to re-visit and re-assess the effect of obesity on SUV...

AlmomaniAbstractAimsThe prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) is increasing in several countries. The MetS is characterized by the occurrence of at least three of the following risk factors: decreased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, increased blood pressure, raised fasting blood glucose, elevated triglycerides, and abdominal obesity. There is a growing evidence of the role of l-carnosine in improving lipid profile and enhancement of the antioxidant activity. However,...
This study suggests that higher doses of RK may cause adverse effects in health compromised conditions. Under these conditions, prolonged use of RK, especially in high doses, may pose a health hazard. PMID: 31603036 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionMLL remains to be underdiagnosed. Due to the obesity epidemic, clinicians must be aware of this once rare disease. The role of concurrent bariatric surgery with surgical resection of MLL warrants further studies.
ConclusionsPreoperative skin antisepsis for trauma surgery of the lower leg and foot using CHX led to significantly fewer complications of wound healing when compared to PVP-I.
This study aimed to investigate prevalence and risk factors of biopsy proven NAFLD in a cluster of healthy non-obese and lean individuals.Methods and MaterialsIn a retrospective study, adult (> 18 years) apparently healthy individuals who had donated liver to pediatric patients between July 2012 and October 2018 were included. Non-obese and lean individuals were defined as BMI
