The investigators are involved in a research program to understand how different diets may affect the risk of colorectal polyps and cancer. To that end, the investigators are conducting a ...
This study will look at the inflammatory (changes usually associated with infection/injury to the body) and bowel permeability (bowel's ability to allow contents to enter the body) effects...
The risk of developing cardiovascular diseases increases with aging largely due to age-related declines in the function of arteries (arterial dysfunction), which are influenced by common l...
Diet macronutrient relative composition, quality and quantity determines lifestyle disease, including cardiovascular disease, development. Our hypothesis is that a high content of carbohyd...
This study will investigate the use of a low biologically available and high protein diet (LoBAG) for treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Subjects with type 2 diabetes will be recruited...
Type 2 diabetes can be managed with the use of diabetes self-management skills. Diet and exercise are essential segments of the lifestyle changes necessary for diabetes management. However, diet recom...
A diet rich in saturated fat and sugars (Western diet, WD) induces myocardial expression of the NLRP3 inflammasome and dysfunction in the mouse. We therefore hypothesized that a diet enriched with an ...
Individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) may modify their diet, which may pose nutritional risk. Further, some dietary approaches, such as a diet low in fermentable oligosaccharides, disacchari...
Obesity has become a global health-threat for every age group, including the elderly. It is well known that young mice (10-12 weeks of age) fed a western-type diet (WD, high in fat and sugar) become o...
A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.
Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal. This does not include DIET THERAPY, a specific diet prescribed in the treatment of a disease.
A diet that contains limited amounts of fat with less than 30% of calories from all fats and less than 10% from saturated fat. Such a diet is used in control of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. (From Bondy et al, Metabolic Control and Disease, 8th ed, pp468-70; Dorland, 27th ed)
A diet which is devoid of GLUTENS from WHEAT; BARLEY; RYE; and other wheat-related varieties. The diet is designed to reduce exposure to those proteins in gluten that trigger INFLAMMATION of the small intestinal mucosa in patients with CELIAC DISEASE.
A course of food intake that is high in FATS and low in CARBOHYDRATES. This diet provides sufficient PROTEINS for growth but insufficient amount of carbohydrates for the energy needs of the body. A ketogenic diet generates 80-90% of caloric requirements from fats and the remainder from proteins.
