CONCLUSIONS: A significant positive correlation exists between HDI and obesity. As policy-makers attempt to improve the general welfare of the people, they should be aware of potential unwanted effects of development on the risk of obesity and overweight among the population.

AbstractFrustratingly, disease-modifying treatments for diabetic neuropathy remain elusive. Glycaemic control has a robust effect on preventing neuropathy in individuals with type 1 but not in those with type 2 diabetes, which constitute the vast majority of patients. Encouragingly, recent evidence points to new metabolic risk factors and mechanisms, and thus also at novel disease-modifying strategies, which are desperately needed. Obesity has emerged as the second most important metabolic risk factor for neuropathy (diabetes being the first) from consensus findings of seven observational studies in populations across the ...

Evidence suggests that pathophysiological conditions such as obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D) are associated with morphologic and metabolic alterations in the small intestinal mucosa. Exploring these alterati...

We examined the associations between the four PGSs and changes in fasting glucose, insulin, β-cell function (HOMA-B) and insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) in 692 overweight participants (84% white Americans) who were randomly assigned to one of four weight-loss diets in a 2-year intervention trial.ResultsHigher BMI+WHR −PGS was associated with a greater decrease in 2-year changes in waist circumference in white participants (P = 0.002). We also found significant interactions between WHRonly+PGS and dietary protein in 2-year changes in fasting glucose and HOMA-B (P = 0.0007 and

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is characterised by progressive obliteration of the pulmonary vasculature, culminating in right-sided heart failure (HF). In recent years, studies have observed an association between systemic metabolic dysfunction, PAH and right ventricular failure [1]. Patients with PAH have an increased prevalence of obesity [2] and type 2 diabetes [3, 4]. Interestingly, abnormal glucose metabolism is evident even in non-diabetic individuals with PAH [5–7], and serves as an independent predictor of prognosis [8].

We describe the mechanistic basis for the clinical benefits associated with nutritional ketosis and identify areas of practice where the evidence base could be improved. We summarize the key principles which inform our approach to treating patients with low-carbohydrate diets. The scientific controversy relating to these diets is real but is consistent with the known challenges of any dietary interventions and also the limitations of nutritional epidemiology. Secondly, notwithstanding any controversy, international guidelines now recognize the validity and endorse the use of these diets as a therapeutic nutritional approac...

AbstractPurposeThe utility of available scoring systems for type 2 diabetes (T2D) remission prediction after metabolic surgery has not been defined in a multi-ethnic Asian population like Singapore. We sought to assess the predictive performance of the Asia-developed ABCD scoring system for T2D remission after metabolic surgery, and develop a new algorithm to improve prediction.Materials and MethodsWe conducted a retrospective analysis of adults with T2D who underwent either Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy between 2007 and 2018, and followed for 1  year postoperatively (n = 114, mean age 4...
