Supervised lifestyle intervention for people with metabolic syndrome improves outcomes and reduces individual risk factors of metabolic syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Metabolic syndrome is characterised by a clustering of metabolic risk factors including abdominal obesity, raised triglycerides, lowered HDL cholesterol, hypertension and impaired glucose tolerance. Multifaceted lifestyle interventions including diet and exercise are recommended as the first-line treatment for the metabolic syndrome.

AbstractIntroductionThe main objective of this research was to evaluate the association of insulin resistance (IR) with micro- and macrovascular complications, sex hormones, and other clinical data.MethodsCross-sectional study of patients older than 18  years old with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) was performed. Participants filled in questionnaires about T1D, disease duration, smoking, glycemic control, chronic diabetes complications, and hypertension status. Data about chronic diabetic complications (neuropathy, retinopathy, and nephropathy) were collected from medical records. History of major cardiovascular even...

CONCLUSION: This study shows that MetS does not predict restenosis after CEA. Also, the presence of MetS did not influence patient survival negatively. PMID: 31653610 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Gao RY, Hsu BG, Wu DA, Hou JS, Chen MC Abstract Background: Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) acts as a potent metabolic regulator. Serum FGF21 levels were significantly higher in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) populations. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between serum FGF21 levels and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in T2DM patients. Methods: Fasting blood samples were obtained from 126 T2DM patients. MetS and its components were defined according to the diagnostic criteria from the International Diabetes Federation. Serum FGF21 concentrations were measured using a comm...

ConclusionsOur results suggest that MetS is associated with alterations in FC between the DMN and other regions of the brain. Furthermore, these results indicate that the overall burden of vascular RFs associated with MetS may, in part, contribute to the pathophysiology underlying aberrant FC in the DMN.

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is defined as a group of metabolic disorders that together increase a person ’s chance of developing cardiovascular diseases, including stroke. The component disorders that comprise MetS are central obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high triglycerides, and low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) [1]. Body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), w aist-hip ratio (WHpR), and waist-height ratio (WHtR) are anthropometric indices that can be used to define abdominal obesity for MetS diagnosis [2].

CONCLUSIONS: Specific metabolic syndrome components may have modest associations with ovarian cancer. These associations varied in direction and the prevalence of the components influenced the overall association between metabolic syndrome and ovarian cancer. Evaluating metabolic syndrome as a composite exposure could be misleading in ovarian cancer research, but further study of the syndrome components is warranted.

Abstract BACKGROUND: The severity of left ventricular (LV) remodelling is only partially related to the severity of aortic valve stenosis; additional factors, including diabetes, insulin resistance, obesity and metabolic syndrome, may play important roles. Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT), now considered as a metabolically active organ, is also linked to these factors. AIM: To analyse the association between EAT volume measured using computed tomography and LV remodelling in a prospective cohort of patients with aortic stenosis. METHODS: Consecutive asymptomatic patients with at least mild degenerative ao...

Because of their numerous health-promoting biological properties, polyphenols are potential candidates to ameliorate MetS and, recently, the incorporation of these compounds into widely consumed foodstuffs has emerged as a potential strategy to enhance their intake. Therefore, we aimed to assess the potential beneficial effects of biscuit...
