Authors: Hua L, Lei M, Xue S, Li X, Li S, Xie Q Abstract The additive effect of high-intensity interval training to fish oil supplementation on newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes is unknown. 173 newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes patients were randomly assigned into the control group (received corn oil), fish oil group (eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA:docosahexaenoic acid, DHA = 3:2, total 2.0 g/day), and the fish oil + high-intensity interval training group. Three instructed high-intensity interval training sessions (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; 10 × 60-s cycling bouts) were perform...

This study argues that a closer adherence to Med-Diet is independently associated with an increase of 25(OH)D suggesting that higher vitamin D levels may contribute to the protective effect of the Med-Diet on osteoporosis. PMID: 32223463 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to investigate the vitamin D status, and analyze the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and metabolic risk factors in PCOS women in Shaanxi China.Methods: A cross-sectional study included 169 women diagnosed with PCOS and 114 control women without PCOS. The serum 25(OH)D and metabolic markers were measured. Vitamin D deficiency was defined as serum 25(OH)D concentration less than 20 ng/mL. The primary outcome was the difference in vitamin D status between the PCOS and control groups, the secondary outcomes were correlations between serum 25(OH)D concentration and metabolic risk factors in women with...

This study found that the majority of women adopted one or more healthy behaviors to prevent NCDs, while few women practiced comprehensive behaviors. Age, satisfaction with house income, living alone, social support, social participation, and household decision making were the determinant factors for behaviors toward NCDs prevention. A high prevalence of underweight (26.4%), overweight (31.9%), obesity (5.6%), high systolic blood pressure (SBP) (62.5%), and low muscle strength (54.2%) were frequently observed. Eating well-balanced meals, avoiding fatty foods, and undergoing blood cholesterol testing had significant correla...

Contributor : Sona RajakumariSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusAdipocytes are key players in maintaining energy homeostasis and are classified into two different categories: white and brown adipocyte. While white adipocytes store energy as triacylglycerols in lipid droplets, brown adipocytes combust excess chemical energy and release in the form of heat through uncoupled respiration. This characteristic phenomenon of brown fat attracts researchers and pharmacological industries to view brown fat as one of the potential therapeutic targets for obesity and associated metab...

AbstractIntroductionLithuania has one of the highest mortality rates from coronary heart disease (CHD) among European countries. Most CHD are preventable, but when they occur, the management of these patients is important in secondary prevention. The purpose of the present analysis was to describe the demographics, clinical profile, and contemporary management of patients with stable CHD in the Lithuanian population and to compare data with other Central Eastern European countries.MethodsCLARIFY (prospective observational longitudinal registry of patients with stable CHD) is an international cohort study in outpatients wit...
