Role of Dietary Fatty Acids in Fatty Liver and Insulin Resistance

2014-07-23 21:11:18 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether substituting saturated fats with polyunsaturated fats reduces fatty liver and improves insulin action and other metabolic variables in abdominally obese subjects

Description

Specific goals:

1. Investigate if substituting saturated fats with polyunsaturated fats reduces steatosis and improves hepatic and/or peripheral insulin action in abdominally obese subjects with type 2 diabetes

2. Investigate if changes of lipogenic enzymes in response to dietary fat intervention are associated with changes in hepatic/peripheral insulin sensitivity or liver fat content

3. Investigate potential mechanism of the effects of dietary fatty acids; e.g. gene expression and lipogenic enzyme activity

Ghrelin Regulation and Structure: Effect of Diet Composition on Ghrelin

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how diet affects the hormone ghrelin. Ghrelin is made in the stomach and causes appetite to increase. Learning about ghrelin will help the...

To test the effects of a modified Atkins high fat diet on endothelial function, insulin resistance and energy balance.

Low Carbohydrate Diet Compared to Calorie and Fat Restricted Diet in Patients With Obesity and Type II Diabetes

This study is designed to address the hypothesis that in obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), a low carbohydrate diet not specifically restricted in calories compared to low ...

Effectiveness of a Low Carbohydrate Diet Versus a High Carbohydrate Diet in Promoting Weight Loss and Improved Health

This study will examine the effects of a low carbohydrate diet versus a high carbohydrate diet on weight loss.

Effects of a Standard American Diet and an Anti-inflammatory Diet in Male and Female Mice.

Obesity may increase susceptibility to chronic pain often due to poor diet. Diet has potential to be used as treatment for pain. The current study investigates the use of a novel translatable diet to ...

Maternal high-fat diet associated with altered gene expression, DNA methylation, and obesity risk in mouse offspring.

We investigated maternal obesity in inbred SM/J mice by assigning females to a high-fat diet or a low-fat diet at weaning, mating them to low-fat-fed males, cross-fostering the offspring to low-fat-fe...

Dietary Uncoupling of Gut Microbiota and Energy Harvesting from Obesity and Glucose Tolerance in Mice.

Evidence suggests that altered gut microbiota composition may be involved in the development of obesity. Studies using mice made obese with refined high-fat diets have supported this; however, these h...

Modulation of the endogenous omega-3 fatty acid and oxylipin profile in vivo-A comparison of the fat-1 transgenic mouse with C57BL/6 wildtype mice on an omega-3 fatty acid enriched diet.

Dietary intervention and genetic fat-1 mice are two models for the investigation of effects associated with omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n3-PUFA). In order to assess their power to modulate th...

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.
