Lifestyle Interventions to Reduce Diabetes Risk

2014-08-27 03:57:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Type 2 diabetes is more frequent in Japanese Americans than in Japan or the U.S. non-Hispanic white population. This appears to be due to the effects of ''westernization'' to bring out metabolic changes that lead to diabetes. This study will look at whether increased physical activity and dietary changes will reduce or prevent the metabolic changes that lead to type 2 diabetes in Japanese Americans who have impaired glucose tolerance, a condition intermediate between normal glucose tolerance and diabetes.

Prevention of Corticosteroid-Induced Glucose Intolerance

Glucose intolerance is frequent and serious complication of corticosteroid therapy. the aim of the study is to examine the hypothesis that co treatment with rosiglitazone can prevent gluco...

Exercise Intolerance in Elderly Patients With Diastolic Heart Failure

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of weight loss via hypocaloric diet, aerobic exercise training, combined hypocaloric diet and exercise training, and attention control i...

Fructose Supplementation in Carriers for Hereditary Fructose Intolerance

This study aimed to examine metabolic response to a short-term fructose enriched diet in carriers for hereditary fructose intolerance compared to controls. Effects of fructose coffees will...

C-Reactive Protein and Endothelial Dysfunction in Women With Glucose Intolerance

The goal of this study is to determine whether markers of vascular inflammation (such as c-reactive protein) can predict endothelial dysfunction (as measured by flow-mediated dilation) in ...

Evaluation of Exercise, in Addition to Diet, in Women With Gestational Diabetes

The main objective is to evaluate the effect of therapeutic exercise program on blood glucose regulation in women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) who are assigned to diet-and-exer...

Repurposing matrine for the treatment of hepatosteatosis and associated disorders in glucose homeostasis in mice.

The present study investigated the efficacy of the hepatoprotective drug matrine (Mtr) for its new application for hepatosteatosis and associated disorders in glucose homeostasis. The study was perfor...

Folate treatment partially reverses gestational low-protein diet-induced glucose intolerance and the magnitude of reversal is age and sex dependent.

Gestational low-protein (LP) programming causes glucose intolerance (GI) and insulin resistance (IR) in adult offspring. Folate supplementation has been shown to rescue the offspring from various prog...

The Root of Atractylodes macrocephala Koidzumi Prevents Obesity and Glucose Intolerance and Increases Energy Metabolism in Mice.

Targeting energy expenditure offers a strategy for treating obesity more effectively and safely. In previous studies, we found that the root of Atractylodes macrocephala Koidzumi (Atractylodis Rhizoma...

Metformin reduces glucose intolerance caused by rapamycin treatment in genetically heterogeneous female mice.

The use of rapamycin to extend lifespan and delay age-related disease in mice is well-established despite its potential to impair glucose metabolism which is driven partially due to increased hepatic ...

Short-term thermoneutral housing alters glucose metabolism and markers of adipose tissue browning in response to a high fat diet in lean mice.

Systemic insulin resistance and glucose intolerance occur with as little as 3 days of a high-fat diet (HFD) in mice and humans; the mechanisms that initiate acute insulin resistance are unknown. Most ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

A heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by HYPERGLYCEMIA and GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.
