Overweight is always accompanied by hypertriglyceridemia (HTG), but the change in non-fasting triglyceride (TG) concentration in overweight subjects without postprandial hypertriglyceridemia was unknown.

Only few studies document longer periods of fasting in large cohorts including non-obese participants. The aim of this study was to document prospectively the safety and any changes in basic health an...
Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and generally measured after 8-12 h fasting. However, some recent studies have pointed that non...
Neotropical nectar-feeding bats consume large amounts of sugar and use most of their energy-rich diet directly from the bloodstream, suggesting an adaptation towards lower body energy reserves. Here w...
Omentin-1 might play a role in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and obesity. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of weight loss after biliopancreatic diversion on serum om...
In two experiments, we studied a) the changes of LH secretion in heifers under different feeding schedules, and b) total ghrelin concentration at estrus in cows and heifers. In experiment one, synchro...
Walnuts have been shown to reduce serum lipids in hyperlipidemic individuals with a well-controlled feeding trials. Current study have been determined the effects of daily walnut consumpti...
The investigators will enroll about 120 subjects from the hospital's healthcare center. The investigators will collect the basic informations, blood pressure, body mass index, fasting bloo...
The aims of this study are as follows: AIM 1: To examine the weight loss and weight maintenance efficacy of an alternate day fasting-high protein (ADF-HP) diet; AIM 2: To examine the effec...
Preoperative fasting is mandatory for anesthetic induction. This period of fasting is probably greater due to delays in the surgical theater and changes in daily operation schedules.Invest...
Many patients with type 2 diabetes have difficulty attaining cholesterol goals, partly due to the recommendations for fasting measurements that may not be practical in the typical clinical...
The metabolic process of breaking down LIPIDS to release FREE FATTY ACIDS, the major oxidative fuel for the body. Lipolysis may involve dietary lipids in the DIGESTIVE TRACT, circulating lipids in the BLOOD, and stored lipids in the ADIPOSE TISSUE or the LIVER. A number of enzymes are involved in such lipid hydrolysis, such as LIPASE and LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE from various tissues.
A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.
Lipids, predominantly phospholipids, cholesterol and small amounts of glycolipids found in membranes including cellular and intracellular membranes. These lipids may be arranged in bilayers in the membranes with integral proteins between the layers and peripheral proteins attached to the outside. Membrane lipids are required for active transport, several enzymatic activities and membrane formation.
Lipids containing one or more phosphate groups, particularly those derived from either glycerol (phosphoglycerides see GLYCEROPHOSPHOLIPIDS) or sphingosine (SPHINGOLIPIDS). They are polar lipids that are of great importance for the structure and function of cell membranes and are the most abundant of membrane lipids, although not stored in large amounts in the system.
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
Hyperlipidemia - high cholesterol (hypercholesterolaemia)
Hyperlipidemia involves abnormally elevated levels of any or all lipids and/or lipoproteins in the blood. Lipids are transported in a protein capsule, the size of that capsule, or lipoprotein, determines its density. The lipoprotein density and type...
