Gender-sensitive Enhancement of Common Weight Loss Strategies for Overweight and Obesity

2019-09-12 02:34:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The major aim of the proposed study is to develop a gender-sensitive individually tailored add-on intervention that focusses on improving individual gender-specific SIRs (subjective illness representations) in obese or overweight individuals. We will investigate whether this will improve compliance with and long-term success of common weight loss interventions. The effectiveness of this intervention in every-day-life with regard to weight-related behavioral changes and weight loss will be evaluated within a randomized controlled setting.To enhance the applicability of the intervention in every-day-life and its dissemination we plan to develop a smart-phone-based intervention.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A status with BODY WEIGHT that is above certain standard of acceptable or desirable weight. In the scale of BODY MASS INDEX, overweight is defined as having a BMI of 25.0-29.9 kg/m2. Overweight may or may not be due to increases in body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE), hence overweight does not equal "over fat".

Clinical study in which a prospectively planned opportunity is included to modify trial designs and hypotheses based on analysis of data from subjects in the study.

Minimally invasive procedures, diagnostic or therapeutic, performed within the BLOOD VESSELS. They may be perfomed via ANGIOSCOPY; INTERVENTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; INTERVENTIONAL RADIOGRAPHY; or INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

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.

Trial that aims to show a new treatment is no better and no worse than the standard treatment.
