Study of Changes in Skeletal Muscle After Caloric Restriction

2014-08-27 03:18:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Research has shown that fat stored within muscles affects the muscle's sensitivity to insulin and ability to handle blood glucose. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of short-term and long-term caloric restriction on the accumulation and types of fats within skeletal muscle, as well as the effects of such caloric restriction on insulin sensitivity and inflammatory responses in skeletal muscle. The investigator proposes that caloric restriction will result in decreases in diacylglycerols enriched with saturated fat and increases in diacylglycerols enriched with monounsaturated fats.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.

A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.

Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.

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 36-amino acid pancreatic hormone that is secreted mainly by endocrine cells found at the periphery of the ISLETS OF LANGERHANS and adjacent to cells containing SOMATOSTATIN and GLUCAGON. Pancreatic polypeptide (PP), when administered peripherally, can suppress gastric secretion, gastric emptying, pancreatic enzyme secretion, and appetite. A lack of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) has been associated with OBESITY in rats and mice.
