One year reliability of the Dutch eating behavior questionnaire: an extension into clinical population

ConclusionIt is concluded that the internal consistency of the Dutch Eating Behavior Questionnaire is excellent, and that the test –retest reliability results suggest that items intended to measure three types of eating styles were likely testing trait, rather than state, factors, regardless of whether normal-weight controls were included in, or excluded from, the analyses. Finally, the measurement invariance of the Dutch Eat ing Behavior Questionnaire across body mass index status was assessed. It indicated that the three-factor structure had the best fit to the data, and this dimensional structure proved to be invariant across body mass index status.

CAMBRIDGE (CBS) – Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are on the verge of making some gastrointestinal treatments more convenient and safer for patients. There are a variety of ingested devices that remain in the GI tract for an extended period of time, like bariatric balloons that are inflated in the stomach to promote weight loss or stents to keep the esophagus open. But removing these devices usually required endoscopic procedures. MIT engineers demonstrated a bariatric balloon that can be inflated in the stomach and then degraded by shining light on the seal, which is made of a novel lig...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewObstructive sleep apnea (OSA), obesity, and disturbed glucose homeostasis are usually considered distinct clinical condition, although they are tightly related to each other. The aim of our manuscript is to provide an overview of the current evidence on OSA, obesity, and disturbed glucose homeostasis providing epidemiologic evidence, biological insights, and therapeutic strategies.Recent FindingsThe mechanisms hypothesized to be involved in this complex interplay are the following: (1) “direct weight-dependent” mechanisms, according to which fat excess compromises respiratory mechanics,...

Most medical devices that are placed within the gastrointestinal tract have to be removed eventually. Such procedures can be challenging to perform and require anesthesia, with all its associated risks and costs. For example, thousands of bariatric b...

I came across an article inForbes discussing beauty and wellness trends for 2020 (see:9 Beauty And Wellness Trend Predictions For 2020 And Beyond). Included in the article was the graphic shown below that categorizes the global wellness economy for 2017 into various segments. All of this raised the question in my mind about how health systems can pursue a portion of this huge wellness market without straying too far from their roots. First, take a look at the graph below.I believe that it would be relatively easy for health systems to become more engaged in three segments of the global wellness industry as shown above...

(The Lancet) Five years after weight-loss surgery, despite small improvements in self-esteem and moderate improvements in binge eating, adolescents did not see improvements in their overall mental health, compared to peers who received conventional obesity treatment, according to a study in Sweden with 161 participants aged 13-18 years published in The Lancet Child&Adolescent Health journal.

SummarySurgical treatment of obesity leads to weight loss and metabolic improvement, but it is unclear if the response differs between patients with and without type 2 diabetes. Retrospective cohort study comparing weight loss and metabolic outcomes between patients with and without type 2 diabetes, matched for body mass index (BMI), gender and age, 12  months after Roux‐en‐Y gastric bypass. Forty‐eight patients with type 2 diabetes (D) and 48 without type 2 diabetes (ND) were evaluated, 87.5% female, mean age 42.2 ± 0.9 years. The mean baseline weight and BMI of the D and ND groups...
