DHA supplementation decreases resting metabolic rate in healthy young females.

Summary of "DHA supplementation decreases resting metabolic rate in healthy young females."

This study examined the independent effects of eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acid supplementation on resting metabolic rate (RMR) and substrate oxidation in young healthy females and males. EPA or DHA supplementation had no effect on RMR and substrate oxidation in males; while DHA reduced RMR by ~7% (p < 0.01) in females. In conclusion, these data establish potential sex differences on RMR in response to DHA supplements. Novelty:  Supplementing with DHA decreases resting energy expenditure in healthy young females but not males.

Beta -adrenergic agonist clenbuterol increases energy expenditure and fat oxidation, and induces mTOR phosphorylation in skeletal muscle of young healthy men.

Clenbuterol is a beta -adrenoceptor agonist marketed as an asthma reliever but is not approved for human use in most countries due to concerns of adverse cardiac effects. Given its demonstrated hypert...

Changes in resting metabolic rate and body composition due to intragastric balloon therapy.

Intragastric balloon (IGB) insertion leads to dietary restriction; however, its neurohormonal actions were also described. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) adjusted for body mass (RMR/mass) seems to incre...

Cerebral metabolism, oxidation, and inflammation in severe passive hyperthermia with and without respiratory alkalosis.

It was unknown whether respiratory alkalosis impacts the global cerebral metabolic response as well as the cerebral pro-oxidation and inflammatory response in passive hyperthermia. This study demonstr...

Supplemented howler monkeys eat less wild fruits, but do not change their activity budgets.

Research on the influence of food supplementation on primate behavior has focused on terrestrial and semiterrestrial species. Its effects on highly arboreal species are poorly known. We assessed the i...

Leptin and insulin in young adulthood are associated with weight in infancy.

Low weight in early infancy is a known risk factor for cardio-metabolic syndrome in adult life. However, little is known either about developmental programming in subjects of normal birthweight, or ab...

Resting Metabolic Rate Reliability

This research is being conducted to study the reliability of a method used to measure resting metabolic rate, or how much energy a person expends while at rest.

Metabolic Effects of Differential Organ Growth Rates

Young children have a high resting energy expenditure (REE) relative to their body weight and metabolically active compartment, fat-free mass (FFM). Both body weight and FFM are, however, ...

Resting Metabolic Rate Testing in Bariatric Surgery Patients

This study evaluates if measuring resting metabolic rate (the number of calories the body burns at rest) before surgery can help predict successful weight loss after surgery.

Impact of Protein Supplementation to Mother Milk on Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) in Growing Healthy Preterm Infants.

Resting Energy Expenditure is the amount of energy, usually expressed in Kcal required for a 24 hour period by the body during resting conditions. It is closely related to, but not identic...

High Intensity Interval Circuit Training on Resting Metabolic Rate in Overweight Adults

This is the first study to examine changes in resting metabolic rate up to 72 hours following an exercise session, and how these changes may be affected by 12 weeks of high intensity inter...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A measurement of OXYGEN uptake in a sitting, resting person (resting oxygen consumption), varying with age, sex, race, and other factors. In normal adult men, one MET is approximately 3.5 ml O2/kg/min of body weight. Oxygen uptake during activities or work can be measured in METs which can be use to determine health status and exercise prescription.

Volume of biological fluid completely cleared of drug metabolites as measured in unit time. Elimination occurs as a result of metabolic processes in the kidney, liver, saliva, sweat, intestine, heart, brain, or other site.

The ratio of the number of conceptions (CONCEPTION) including LIVE BIRTH; STILLBIRTH; and fetal losses, to the mean number of females of reproductive age in a population during a set time period.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

A peritoneal mesothelioma affecting mainly young females and producing cysts of variable size and number lined by a single layer of benign mesothelial cells. The disease follows a benign course and is compatible with a normal life expectancy, requiring occasionally partial excision or decompression for relief of pain or other symptoms. Malignant potential is exceptional. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1345)
