Development of a Mobile Application Platform for Self-Management of Obesity Using Artificial Intelligence Techniques
Int J Telemed Appl. 2021 Aug 27;2021:6624057. doi: 10.1155/2021/6624057. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTObesity is a major global health challenge and a risk factor for the leading causes of death, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and several types of cancer. Attempts to manage and regulate obesity have led to the implementation of various dietary regulatory initiatives to provide information on the calorie contents of meals. Although knowledge of the calorie content is useful for meal planning, it is not sufficient as other factors, including health status (diabetes, hypertension, etc.) and level of physical activity,...

Malnutrition Prevalence Rates among Dutch Nursing Home Residents: What Has Changed over One Decade? A Comparison of the Years 2009, 2013 and 2018
ConclusionEven though much attention has been paid to prevent malnutrition in Dutch nursing homes over the last decades, results show a relatively stable malnutrition prevalence rate of around 16%. This leads to the question if nursing staff is able to sufficiently recognize residents with (a risk of) malnutrition, and if they are aware of interventions they could perform to decrease this rate.

Prevention of Diabetes Macrovascular Complications and Heart Failure
Cardiovascular (CV) mortality in diabetes has declined substantially over the last 3  decades in high-income countries from a multifactorial approach targeting glucose, cholesterol, and blood pressure, and lower smoking rates. Additional CV gains may be achieved from large-scale weight loss, which ongoing trials are testing, and from delaying diabetes in those at highest risk. Fina lly, recent outcome trials support a role for (1) sodium/glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors, which lower major adverse cardiovascular events but incident heart failure more strongly, and (2) glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, which lowe...

Hepatic-Metabolite-Based Intermittent Fasting Enables a Sustained Reduction in Insulin Resistance in Type 2 Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome
Horm Metab Res DOI: 10.1055/a-1510-8896Insulin resistance is the hallmark of Type 2 Diabetes and is still an unmet medical need. Insulin resistance lies at the crossroads of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, obesity, weight loss and exercise resistance, heart disease, stroke, depression, and brain health. Insulin resistance is purely nutrition related, with a typical molecular disease food intake pattern. The insulin resistant state is accessible by TyG as the appropriate surrogate marker, which is found to lead the personalized molecular hepatic nutrition system for highly efficient ins...

Exosomes derived from bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells harvested from type two diabetes rats promotes neurorestorative effects after stroke in type two diabetes rats.
CONCLUSIONS: T2DM-MSC-Exo treatment for stroke in T2DM rats promotes neurorestorative effects and improves functional outcome. Down regulation of miR-9 expression and increasing its target ABCA1 pathway may contribute partially to T2DM-MSC-Exo treatment induced white matter remodeling and anti-inflammatory responses.

Curcumin-loaded nanoemulsion improves haemorrhagic stroke recovery in wistar rats.
Abstract Cerebrovascular diseases are currently a major global health problem. Considering the limitations of current therapy, the search for new alternatives for the treatment of these diseases is necessary and, in this context, curcumin, a molecule that has neuroprotective properties already described in the literature. A limiting factor when considering therapies for the nervous tissue is the presence of the blood-brain barrier which stimulates the search for new drug delivery strategies. In this context, nanoencapsulation seems to be a promising alternative. In this work, we compared the protective effects of ...

Stroke Induces Prolonged Changes in Lipid Metabolism, the Liver and Body Composition in Mice
AbstractDuring recovery, stroke patients are at risk of developing long-term complications that impact quality of life, including changes in body weight and composition, depression and anxiety, as well as an increased risk of subsequent vascular events. The aetiologies and time-course of these post-stroke complications have not been extensively studied and are poorly understood. Therefore, we assessed long-term changes in body composition, metabolic markers and behaviour after middle cerebral artery occlusion in mice. These outcomes were also studied in the context of obesity, a common stroke co-morbidity proposed to prote...

Diet Drinks Linked To Increased Stroke Risk & Heart Attacks
This study, as well as other research on the connection between diet beverages and vascular disease, is observational and cannot show cause and effect. That’s a major limitation, researchers say, as it’s impossible to determine whether the association is due to a specific artificial sweetener, a type of beverage or another hidden health issue. “Postmenopausal women tend to have higher risk for vascular disease because they are lacking the protective effects of natural hormones,” North Carolina cardiologist Dr. Kevin Campbell said, which could contribute to increased risk for heart disease and stroke...

Atrial Fibrillation Burden: Moving Beyond Atrial Fibrillation as a Binary Entity: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association.
nd Stroke Council Abstract Our understanding of the risk factors and complications of atrial fibrillation (AF) is based mostly on studies that have evaluated AF in a binary fashion (present or absent) and have not investigated AF burden. This scientific statement discusses the published literature and knowledge gaps related to methods of defining and measuring AF burden, the relationship of AF burden to cardiovascular and neurological outcomes, and the effect of lifestyle and risk factor modification on AF burden. Many studies examine outcomes by AF burden classified by AF type (paroxysmal versus nonparoxysmal); h...

Mental contrasting with implementation intentions (MCII) improves physical activity and weight loss among stroke survivors over one year.
Objective: Stroke is the most common cause of physical impairment, and having already had a stroke dramatically increases the risk of having another one. Although greater physical activity lowers rates of stroke recurrence, patients often fail to act in line with this recommendation. The present intervention tested whether teaching the self-regulation strategy of mental contrasting (MC) with implementation intentions (II; MCII) improves stroke patients’ physical activity and weight loss over 1 year compared with 2 information-only, control interventions. Research Method: Participants were 183 stroke survivors who were ca...

Adipose tissue and metabolic and inflammatory responses to stroke are altered in obese mice RESEARCH ARTICLE
ABSTRACT Obesity is an independent risk factor for stroke, although several clinical studies have reported that obesity improves stroke outcome. Obesity is hypothesised to aid recovery by protecting against post-stroke catabolism. We therefore assessed whether obese mice had an altered metabolic and inflammatory response to stroke. Obese ob/ob mice underwent a 20-min middle cerebral artery occlusion and 24-h reperfusion. Lipid metabolism and expression of inflammatory cytokines were assessed in the plasma, liver and adipose tissue. The obese-specific metabolic response to stroke was assessed in plasma using non-targeted ul...

Delayed 2-hour post-stroke administration of R18 and NA-1 (TAT-NR2B9c) peptides after permanent and/or transient middle cerebral artery occlusion in the rat.
Abstract Following positive results with the poly-arginine peptide R18 when administered intravenously 30 or 60minutes after permanent and/or transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO; 90min) in the rat, we examined the effectiveness of the peptide when administered 2hours after MCAO. R18 was administered intravenously (1000nmol/kg via jugular vein) after permanent MCAO or a transient 3-hour MCAO or when administered intra-arterially (100nmol/kg via internal carotid artery) immediately after reperfusion following a transient 2-hour MCAO. In the transient MCAO studies, the neuroprotective NA-1 peptide was us...

An alternative surgical approach reduces variability following filament induction of experimental stroke in mice RESOURCE ARTICLE
ABSTRACT Animal models are essential for understanding the pathology of stroke and investigating potential treatments. However, in vivo stroke models are associated, particularly in mice, with high variability in lesion volume. We investigated whether a surgical refinement where reperfusion is not reliant on the Circle of Willis reduced outcome variability. Mice underwent 60 min of transient middle cerebral artery occlusion avoiding ligation of the external carotid artery. During reperfusion, the common carotid artery was either ligated (standard approach), or it was repaired to allow re-establishment of blood flow th...

Microcirculatory Disorders and Protective Role of Antioxidant in Severe Heat Stroke: A Rat Study
This study aims to examine microcirculation and systemic hemodynamic disturbances in severe heat stroke (HS). A total of 147 rats were divided into HS group (HS), pretreated with superoxide dismutase (SOD+HS) group, and pretreated with normal saline (NS+HS) group. Heat stress was induced by incubating the animals in certain temperatures. Blood flow and vascular reactivity were monitored dynamically with intravital microscopy. Pulmonary permeability was reflected by wet-to-dry weight ratio, the concentration of Evans Blue (EB), and histopathology of lung. The results showed that heat stress could induce blood flow rate redu...

Prognostic importance of weight change on short‐term functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke
ConclusionsShort‐term weight loss after stroke appears to be more common than we expected, and our results suggest that it is associated with unfavorable functional outcomes. Therefore, clinical nutrition should be considered as a component of medical treatment and weight loss should be monitored as an indicator of malnutrition.
