Quantitative Evaluation of Bitter Taste in Obesity

2017-05-12 13:38:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Although taste influences food choices and favours diseases like obesity, there is no consensus about the existence of correlations between bitterness and anthropometric variables. Also, an electronic-based method for data collection could provide a more appropriate way for the evaluation of taste perception and save time.

The objective is to search for correlations between bitterness and anthropometric variables.

Description

A cross-sectional study evaluating correlations between the bitterness rates given on a generalized Labeled Magnitude Scale, anthropometrics and other variables. Bitterness perceptions at the tip of the tongue (TOTp) and at the whole mouth (WMp) were recorded using a locally developed novel cloud-based software (Cloud-gLMS). The ANCOVA test was adjusted using TOTp and WMp as dependent variables and age, height, weight, BMI, gender, waist circumference, alcohol intake, comorbidities, and use of medications as independent variables.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.

The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.

A sub-PHENOTYPE of obese individuals who have a risk for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES between that of healthy individuals with normal weight and unhealthy individuals with obesity.

BODY MASS INDEX in children (ages 2-12) and in adolescents (ages 13-18) that is grossly above the recommended cut-off for a specific age and sex. For infants less than 2 years of age, obesity is determined based on standard weight-for-length percentile measures.

Agents that increase energy expenditure and weight loss by neural and chemical regulation. Beta-adrenergic agents and serotoninergic drugs have been experimentally used in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) to treat obesity.
