This study will compare short-term post-exercise muscle glycogen synthesis following combined galactose-glucose, glucose alone or galactose alone ingestion.
This study is a proof-of-concept clinical study designed to test the hypothesis that oral administration of galactose can lower the level of a circulating factor that increases glomerular ...
The elimination of the carbohydrate galactose is used in daily clinical work with liver patients as a quantitative measure of metabolic liver function, as the liver test "The Galactose Eli...
Cardiovascular diseases remain the main cause of mortality in Canada. While effective interventions are available for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease,there continue to be gaps ...
The goal of this study is to better characterize the metabolic alterations and sugar structure alterations (glycosylation abnormalities) in patients diagnosed with Congenital Disorders of ...
Background The 1-hour glucose challenge test (GCT) is routinely performed in pregnancy to screen for gestational diabetes mellitus. Remarkably, it has recently emerged that the GCT can also predict a ...
It is widely accepted that a possible etiopathogenic factor associated with IgA nephropathy is the glycosylation of IgA1 molecule O-glycans. The present study aimed to determine if galactose-deficient...
There is an inverse, graded relationship between worsening chronic kidney disease (CKD) and increasing cardiovascular risk independent of traditional cardiovascular risk factors. Increasing arterial s...
Although we previously reported the fasting C-glucose breath test (FGBT) was useful for the diagnosis of hepatic insulin resistance (IR), there has been no report in an actual clinical setting. We the...
Thyroid dysfunction is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Whether thyroid function within the normal range is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease remains uncertain. The aim of this study i...
Neutral glycosphingolipids that contain a monosaccharide, normally glucose or galactose, in 1-ortho-beta-glycosidic linkage with the primary alcohol of an N-acyl sphingoid (ceramide). In plants the monosaccharide is normally glucose and the sphingoid usually phytosphingosine. In animals, the monosaccharide is usually galactose, though this may vary with the tissue and the sphingoid is usually sphingosine or dihydrosphingosine. (From Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1st ed)
Glycosphingolipids which contain as their polar head group a trisaccharide (galactose-galactose-glucose) moiety bound in glycosidic linkage to the hydroxyl group of ceramide. Their accumulation in tissue, due to a defect in ceramide trihexosidase, is the cause of angiokeratoma corporis diffusum (FABRY DISEASE).
A specialty concerned with the nursing care of patients suffering from disorders of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM as well as those identified as at risk for adverse cardiac or vascular events.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE. It also includes cardiac conditioning and SECONDARY PREVENTION in patients with elevated cardiovascular risk profile.
An aldohexose that occurs naturally in the D-form in lactose, cerebrosides, gangliosides, and mucoproteins. Deficiency of galactosyl-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALACTOSE-1-PHOSPHATE URIDYL-TRANSFERASE DEFICIENCY DISEASE) causes an error in galactose metabolism called GALACTOSEMIA, resulting in elevations of galactose in the blood.
