The Effect of Hypertension Duration and the Age of Onset on CV Risk Factors Expression in Perimenopausal Women.

Conclusion: Hypertension onset at the time around menopause appears together with abdominal obesity and may be a driving force for CV risk factor accumulation in postmenopausal women. PMID: 31885899 [PubMed]

Publication date: Available online 18 February 2020Source: Food HydrocolloidsAuthor(s): Xiaqing Wu, Guowen Zhang, Mingming Hu, Junhui Pan, Ang Li, Ying ZhangAbstractAs one of the most reactive dicarbonyl compounds, methylglyoxal (MGO) can react with protein to form advanced glycation end products (AGEs), then promoting the development of diabetic complications. Hence, it is significant for preventing protein glycation mediated by MGO. Here, the anti-glycation potential and mechanism of gallocatechin gallate (GCG) as an active ingredient of green tea were investigated. It was found that GCG exhibit good scavenging activitie...

Authors: Warmbrunn MV, Herrema H, Aron-Wisnewsky J, Soeters MR, Van Raalte DH, Nieuwdorp M Abstract Introduction: Cardiometabolic diseases (CMD) are a group of interrelated disorders such as metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases (CVD). As the prevalence of these diseases increases globally, efficient new strategies are necessary to target CMD and modifiable risk factors. In the past decade, evidence has accumulated regarding the influence of gut microbiota (GM) on CMD, providing new targets for therapeutic interventions.Areas covered: This narrative review discusses the pathophysi...

This study aims to investigate the gamma and neutron attenuation properties of several OAD (oral anti-diabetic drugs) samples. Our sample consists of seven different OAD films with different elemental compositions. The data were evaluated with Monte Carlo (MATLAB, WinX) techniques by SEM (Scanning electron microscopy) and EDS (Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy) analysis. By using WinXCOM in the energy range from 0.02 MeV to 20 MeV, the mass attenuation coefficients (μ/ρ) for OAD samples are calculated. Additionally, both effective removal cross-section and effective atomic numbers (Zeff) for the sample films ...

In this study, we first analyzed the chemical compounds of AG by HPLC-DAD-ESI-IT-TOF-MS n . Of the 31 compounds detected, 29 were identified based on previous results. Then, the effects of DMY and AG on high-fat diet hamster livers were studied and the metabolite levels and metabolic pathway activity of the liver were explored by 1H NMR metabolomics. Compared to the high-fat diet group, supplementation of AG and DMY attenuated the high-fat-induced increase in body weight, liver lipid deposition, serum triglycerides and total cholesterol levels, and normalized endogenous metabolite concentrations. PCA and PLS-DA score plots...

CONCLUSIONS: Insufficient riboflavin intake may contribute to development of cardiometabolic disorder, particularly in women. It was also found that riboflavin may have different influences on its risks in women according to menopausal status. This study highlighted the importance of public policies targeted at these sex-specific groups for reducing cardiometabolic risks. PMID: 31192558 [PubMed - in process]

We examined the effects of the independent and combined effects of Zataria Multiflora supplementation and circuit resistance training (CRT) on selected adipokines among postmenopausal women. Forty-eight postmenopausal women were divided into four groups: Exercise (EG, n = 12), Zataria Multiflora (ZMG, n = 12), exercise and Zataria Multiflora (ZMEG, n = 12), and control (CG, n = 12). Participants in experimental groups either performed CRT (3 sessions per week with intensity at 55% of one-repetition maximum) or supplemented with Zataria Multiflora (500 mg every day after breakfast with 100 ml of water), or their combination...

cute;pez FR Abstract The metabolic syndrome (METS) is an entity diagnosed by three or more of the following factors: abdominal obesity, low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and high serum triglycerides, fasting glucose, and/or blood pressure levels. Abdominal obesity is the most prevalent component of the syndrome that favors insulin resistance and a proinflammatory and prothrombotic status, and the risk of developing diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic conditions. During the menopausal transition, women tend to gain weight and this has been related to an increase in the prevalence of the METS. Rates ha...

If you’ve never heard of metabolic syndrome, you’re probably not alone. It’s a term often used in medical journals and doctor-speak, but it is worth knowing about. A national health report found that 33 percent of adults have the condition, with women more affected than men. “And more women, especially between the ages of 20 and 39, are now developing metabolic syndrome,” says Aruna D. Pradhan, MD, associate physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. In fact, the rate for women is growing, from 35 percent in 2003 to 37 percent...
