Summary of "The effects of 8 weeks of levothyroxine replacement treatment on metabolic and anthropometric indices of insulin resistance in hypothyroid patients."

Insulin resistance (IR) is an independent cardiovascular risk factor. IR predisposes to metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Meanwhile, little evidence there exists about the effect of levothyroxine replacement treatment (LRT) on IR in hypothyroid patients.

The Relationship between Anthropometric Indices and Breast Cancer in Central Iran.

Anthropometric indices have a debatable relationship with breast cancer (BC) among different ethnicity. In the current study, we have evaluated the relationship between anthropometric indices and BC i...

Novel and traditional anthropometric indices for identifying arterial stiffness in overweight and obese adults.

Obesity and arterial stiffness are both independently associated with cardiovascular risk. New anthropometric indices can better reflect abdominal obesity than traditional anthropometric indices. Thus...

Anthropometric Factors in the Assessment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Risk in Patients with Metabolic Syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are related to a higher incidence of cardio-vascular diseases and mortality in patients. The aim of the study was to define the potential us...

Relationship between BMI and aortic stiffness: influence of anthropometric indices in hypertensive men and women.

Increased aortic stiffness could be one of the mechanisms by which obesity increases cardiovascular risk independently of traditional risk factors. Studies have suggested that anthropometric indices m...

Leptin as a predictor of anthropometric cutoff points for obesity.

This study was conducted to find the association between leptin and adiposity indices. Secondly, to identify optimal threshold of various anthropometric indices for obesity, as assessed by 75th percen...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).

Substances that contain a fused three-ring moiety and are used in the treatment of depression. These drugs block the uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin into axon terminals and may block some subtypes of serotonin, adrenergic, and histamine receptors. However the mechanism of their antidepressant effects is not clear because the therapeutic effects usually take weeks to develop and may reflect compensatory changes in the central nervous system.

Specific effects of drugs and substances on metabolic pathways such as those occurring through the CYTOCHROME P-450 ENZYME SYSTEM. These include effects that often result in DRUG INTERACTIONS; FOOD-DRUG INTERACTIONS; and HERB-DRUG INTERACTIONS.

Measurable and quantifiable biological parameters (e.g., specific enzyme concentration, specific hormone concentration, specific gene phenotype distribution in a population, presence of biological substances) which serve as indices for health- and physiology-related assessments, such as disease risk, psychiatric disorders, ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE and its effects, disease diagnosis; METABOLIC PROCESSES; SUBSTANCE ABUSE; PREGNANCY; cell line development; EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES; etc.
