UK government delays restriction of promotions on less-healthy foods: Serious implications for tackling obesity
Obesity (Silver Spring). 2022 Jul 27. doi: 10.1002/oby.23524. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTRegulations ensuring that the promotion and advertising of foods high in fat, sugar, and salt were restricted from October 2022 are now to be delayed by the UK Government. The delay of this policy is to be condemned because it will set back the anticipated improvement to population diets and obesity levels by postponing the expected transformation of retail food environments in-store and online. Governmental justifications for delaying these policies, the implementation of which was the responsibility of the UK food industry, can be...

Childhood obesity risk factors by race and ethnicity
CONCLUSIONS: These findings showed racial/ethnic differences in the risk factors that influence the likelihood of obesity during childhood. Further research is needed to identify modifiable racial/ethnic specific risk factors to guide obesity-prevention interventions.PMID:35894074 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23500 (Source: Obesity)

Pragmatic implementation of a fully automated online obesity treatment in primary care
CONCLUSIONS: This fully automated online program, implemented into the routine workflow of a primary care setting without any human counseling or researcher involvement, produced clinically meaningful short-term weight loss. Greater program engagement was associated with greater weight loss; efforts are needed to understand barriers to engagement.PMID:35894075 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23502 (Source: Obesity)

Coverage for obesity prevention and treatment: analysis of state employee health plans and use of benefits
CONCLUSIONS: Despite promising new therapies, states in 2021 were less likely to provide coverage for antiobesity medications. Additionally, limited use data suggested that few eligible individuals may be receiving these services. In conclusion, state employee health plans are currently inadequate given the prevalence, severity, and costs of obesity.PMID:35894076 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23468 (Source: Obesity)

Aldose reductase promotes diet-induced obesity via induction of senescence in subcutaneous adipose tissue
CONCLUSIONS: AKR1B1/Akr1b3 modulation of senescence in subcutaneous adipose tissue contributes to aberrant metabolic responses to high-fat feeding. These data unveil new opportunities to target these pathways to combat obesity.PMID:35894077 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23496 (Source: Obesity)

Weight loss and β-cell responses following gastric banding or pharmacotherapy in adults with impaired glucose tolerance or type 2 diabetes: a randomized trial
CONCLUSIONS: Reducing demand on the β-cell by improving IS through weight loss does not reverse β-cell dysfunction. L + M was the only treatment that enhanced β-cell function.PMID:35894078 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23475 (Source: Obesity)

Three-dimensional optical body shape and features improve prediction of metabolic disease risk in a diverse sample of adults
CONCLUSIONS: Body shape measures from an accessible 3DO scan, adjusted for demographics, predicted MetS better than demographics and/or BMI alone. Risk classification in this population increased by 29% when using 3DO scanning.PMID:35894079 | PMC:PMC9333197 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23470 (Source: Obesity)

Effects of liraglutide on gastrointestinal functions and weight in obesity: A randomized clinical and pharmacogenomic trial
CONCLUSIONS: Liraglutide, 3 mg, induces weight loss with delay in GES T1/2 and reduces calorie intake. Slowing GES and variations in GLP1R and TCF7L2 are associated with liraglutide effects in obesity.PMID:35894080 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23481 (Source: Obesity)

Pre- and postnatal exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke and body composition at 12  years: periods of susceptibility
CONCLUSIONS: Postnatal exposure to SHS may increase adolescent adiposity and lean mass. Future studies should determine whether early-life exposures to SHS are associated with other cardiometabolic risk markers.PMID:35894081 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23480 (Source: Obesity)

Myopia and BMI: a nationwide study of 1.3 million adolescents
CONCLUSIONS: BMI was associated with myopia in a J-shaped pattern, with the size effect being greater for adolescent men than women. This study indicates that both low BMI and high BMI are associated with mild-to-moderate and severe myopia.PMID:35894082 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23482 (Source: Obesity)
