The metabolic syndrome (MetS), characterized by a group of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors including truncal obesity, hypertension, deranged lipid profiles, and abnormal glucose metabolism [1], is a significant risk factor for CVD and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) [2]. The prevalence of obesity in South Africa is exceptionally high, at 11% in men and 41% in women [3], compared to that of the USA, where 31.7% of men and 33.9% of women are obese [4]. The prevalence of MetS in South Africa is increasing due to the high prevalence of obesity and poor dietary habits, which are now also reported in rural areas [5, 6].

AbstractBackgroundSingle anastomosis sleeve ileal (SASI) bypass is a newly introduced bariatric and metabolic procedure. The present multicenter study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of the SASI bypass in the treatment of patients with morbid obesity and the metabolic syndrome.MethodsThis is a retrospective, seven-country, multicenter study on patients with morbid obesity who underwent the SASI bypass. Data regarding patients ’ demographics, body mass index (BMI), percentage of total weight loss (%TWL), percentage of excess weight loss (%EWL), and improvement in comorbidities at 12 months postoperatively and postopera...

Contributors : Zhu-Jun MAO ; Lu-Ping QinSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensInsulin resistance (IR) is likely to induce metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Gluconeogenesis (GNG) is a complex metabolic process that may result in glucose generation from certain non-carbohydrate substrates. Chinese herbal medicine astragalus polysaccharides and berberine have been documented to ameliorate IR, and combined use of astragalus polysaccharide (AP) and berberine (BBR) are reported to synergistically produce an even better effect. However, what change may occur i...

Abstract AIMS: Recent epidemiological studies have suggested an association between sarcopenia and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in the general population, prompting our investigation into the gender-specific association between sarcopenia and NAFLD in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, 4210 patients with T2DM were recruited from the Seoul Metabolic Syndrome Cohort. Appendicular skeletal muscle mass (ASM) was estimated from bioimpedance analysis measurements, and the skeletal muscle mass index (SMI) was calculated by dividing the sum of ASM by bo...

AbstractBackgroundDipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors and sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are widely used antidiabetic drugs. However, to date, no studies have directly compared the effects of these two drugs on the components of the metabolic syndrome in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).ObjectivesThe Comparison of Canagliflozin vs. Teneligliptin against Basic Metabolic Risks in Patients with T2DM (CANTABILE) study aims to examine whether the DPP-4 inhibitor (teneligliptin) or the SGLT2 inhibitor (canagliflozin) is the more effective drug for reducing metabolic risk factors as a compos...

Publication date: Available online 23 October 2019Source: The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular BiologyAuthor(s): Margarida Lorigo, Melissa Mariana, Manuel C. Lemos, Elisa CairraoAbstractTestosterone (T) is the predominant endogenous androgen in the bloodstream. At the vascular level, T presents genomic and non-genomic effects, and both effects may overlap. The genomic actions assume that androgens can freely cross the plasma membrane of target cells and bind to nuclear androgen receptors, inducing gene transcription and protein synthesis. The non-genomic effects have a more rapid onset and may be related to th...
