Summary

The patients are randomized into 4 groups : Patients undergoing PENS of dermatome T6 in and a 1200 Kcal diet (Group 1), Patients undergoing PENS T6 and a 2000 Kcal/day, Patients undergoing transcutaneous electrical neurostimulation (TENS) of Dermatomes T11-T12 and following a 1200 Kcal diet and those patients following only a 1200 Kcal diet (Group 4). Weight loss, appetite and ghrelin levels at baseline and after treatment are investigated.

Description

The patients were randomized into 4 groups using an Internet randomization module: Patients undergoing PENS of dermatome T6 in conjunction with the implementation of a 1200 Kcal diet (Group 1), Patients undergoing PENS T6 and following a normocaloric diet (2000 Kcal/day) (Group 2), Patients undergoing transcutaneous electrical neurostimulation (TENS) of dermatomes in right iliac fossa (Dermatomes T11-T12) and following a hypocaloric diet (1200 Kcal/day) (Group 3) and those patients following only a 1200 Kcal diet (Group 4).

Weight loss, appetite and ghrelin levels, at baseline and after treatment, are investigated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
