Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Agents that increase energy expenditure and weight loss by neural and chemical regulation. Beta-adrenergic agents and serotoninergic drugs have been experimentally used in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) to treat obesity.
A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.
The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.
A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).
A plasma membrane exchange glycoprotein transporter that functions in intracellular pH regulation, cell volume regulation, and cellular response to many different hormones and mitogens.
To evaluate the short-term effects of structured lipids on appetite regulation.
To determine the safety, efficacy and treatment algorithm(s) of the Maestro System in causing weight loss in obese subjects - This study will provide feasibility data regarding the potenti...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate potential mechanisms by which estradiol deficiency accelerates fat gain and abdominal fat accumulation in women.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about how diet affects the hormone ghrelin. Ghrelin is made in the stomach and causes appetite to increase. Learning about ghrelin will help the...
In this proposal, we will (1) detect the associations between BDNF and Trk B gene DNA methylation, histone modification, psychotic symptoms, obesity, suicide and antipsychotic drug respons...
Emotional eating, the tendency to eat when experiencing negative affect, is prevalent in morbid obesity and may indicate that ways to deal with emotions are disturbed. Our aim was to compare emotion p...
AbstractObjective- Obesity impairs adiponectin expression, assembly and secretion, yet the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. The aims of this study were 1) to determine the molecular mechanisms by...
ABSTRACT: Obesity, a significant risk factor for various chronic diseases, is universally related to dyslipidemia mainly represented by decreasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), which p...
Our understanding of the regulation of appetite has improved considerably over the last few decades. Recent work, stimulated by efforts aimed at curbing the current obesity epidemic, has unravelled so...
Objectives:To investigate the role of toddlers' self-regulation skills and temperament in predicting weight outcomes in preadolescence.Methods:Participants for this study included 195 children (114 gi...
