Weight for it: Time-restricted eating benefits those at risk for diabetes, heart disease

(University of California - San Diego) Researchers from University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies reported a form of intermittent fasting, called time-restricted eating, improved the health of study participants who had been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.

Conclusions: PEG-HCC can improve some parameters of disease in these models and this may be due to a resulting increase in peripheral insulin sensitivity. However, additional studies are needed to elucidate how PEG-HCCs are producing these effects. PMID: 31937152 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

(Natural News) Years of research have established a positive collaboration between estrogen and vitamin D to improve bone health. Now, recent research suggests that this dynamic duo could also play a role in staving off metabolic syndrome in postmenopausal women. Metabolic syndrome is described as a cluster of conditions – such as obesity, high blood...

Publication date: Available online 13 January 2020Source: Medical Journal Armed Forces IndiaAuthor(s): Rajvir BhalwarAbstractMetabolic Syndrome (MetS) is a clustering of specific risk factors, namely, central obesity, raised blood pressure, impaired fasting glucose, raised triglycerides, and low levels of high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C). This constellation is triggered by insulin resistance and its resultant hyperinsulinemia. The two most important and universally agreed causes of insulin resistance are increased body fat (particularly central obesity) and physical inactivity. Other causes include certain gene...

ConclusionsIn adults in China, HCT level was associated with elevated central arterial stiffness, independent of conventional cardiovascular risk factors. As a serological marker, HCT can predict the degree of central arterial stiffness. HCT combined with other traditional cardiovascular risk factors can better assess vascular heart disease.

Authors: Malo J, Alam MJ, Shahnaz M, Kaliannan K, Chandra G, Aziz T, Sarker T, Bala M, Paul R, Saha CK, Karmakar PK, Malo MS Abstract Background: We have previously shown that the deficiency of the gut enzyme intestinal alkaline phosphatase (IAP) is associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in humans, and mice deficient in IAP develop the metabolic syndrome, a precipitant of T2DM and ischemic heart disease (IHD). We hypothesized that IAP deficiency might also be associated with IHD in humans. We aimed to determine the correlation between the IAP level and IHD in humans. Methods and Results: The IHD patien...

Type 2 diabetes and cardiometabolic comorbidities manifesting as the metabolic syndrome (MetS) are highly prevalent in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients attending cardiac rehabilitation (CR). The study aimed to determine the prevalence of cardiometabolic derangements and MetS, and compare post-CR clinical responses in a large cohort of CHD patients with and without diabetes.

Abstract Green tea (Camellia sinensis, Theaceace), has been extensively studied for its putative effects in prevention of age related diseases. Here, we discuss the increasing evidence that consumption of green tea has preventative effects in obesity, hypertension, insulin resistance, type II diabetes, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease and Metabolic Syndrome (MetS). The catechins in green tea has been found to be beneficial in obesity induced by a high-fat diet. These effects are mainly attributable to the gallate esters of catechins, (-)-epicatechin gallate (ECG) and (-)-epigallocatechin-3- gallate (EGCG). ...

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) affects 10% of adolescents and is associated with development of diabetes and heart disease. Abdominal obesity, representing excess visceral fat, is the most prevalent component of MetS. Sagittal abdominal diameter (SAD) is highly correlated with visceral fat, yet its use in the clinical setting is largely nonexistent. We aimed to determine MetS prevalence and association between MetS severity and SAD in adolescents undergoing bariatric surgery.
