Researchers will measure weight, height, hand grip strength and quality of life information of Meals on Wheels (MOW) clients who are considered to have nutrition problems. Participants will randomly be put into a group that receives either typical meals from Meals on Wheels or Ensure Plus supplements with their meals. Three months later the same data will be collected again. The objective of this study is to demonstrate the effectiveness of providing oral nutritional supplemen...
The clinical study's hypothesis is that community dwelling older people receiving meals-on-wheels can have an improvement in health-related quality of life and muscle strength, being involved in their own food and meals compared to not being involved in their own food and meals; that is usual community home-care and meals-on-wheels.
The current epidemic of obesity relates to the transition from traditional to industrialised diets. The present project investigates the effect on body energy of recommending the consumption of traditional "home meals", which may be a useful recommendation against obesity. A randomized controlled trial design is applied assigning participants to a recommendation of consuming during 12 weeks either "home meals" or "healthy meals." Frequency of consumption of energy-dense foods a...
The purpose of this study is to test the relationship between frequency of meals and hepatic fat content and insulin sensitivity. We, the researchers at Rockefeller University, hypothesize that low plasma insulin levels (as achieved by periods of fasting) will prevent insulin resistance and reduce hepatic lipid content. In contrast, frequent, carbohydrate-rich meals will predispose to hepatic steatosis (non-alcoholic) and insulin resistance. This is a 6 week inpatient ...
Meals-on wheels may play a major role in contributing to better nourishment and quality of life in older people, thus delaying costly hospitalisation. Still, dwelling, old adults who receive meals-on-wheels are a population at risk of undernutrition leading to a decreased quality of life and functional status. Hypothesis Offering nutritious ELDORADO meals as meals-on-wheels to nursing home residents in 3 months is an effective way to increase quality of life and functional abi...
Aim of the study is to investigate the impact of orange juice consumption (with meals or between meals) as well as sugar sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption (between meals) on glucose homeostasis and antioxidative status.
This is a randomized clinical trial in which maintenance hemodialysis patients will be provided with salt restricted 'dialysis friendly' meals and compared to a control arm receiving usual care.
Open label, randomized, cross-over clinical study comparing the acute effect of high versus low protein meals during dialysis on intradialytic blood pressure, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure and arterial stiffness indices on maintenance hemodialysis patients.
The purpose of this study is to implement a home-based exercise program, administered through Interfaith Ministries of Greater Houston Meals on Wheels (MOWGH), and evaluate its effects on frailty status and nutritional markers in homebound older adults.
The aim of the project is to assess the beneficial effect of offering frail old people a targeted meals-on-wheels service in 8 weeks in a randomized controlled trial
The main purpose of the study is to investigate the reason for the reduced number of hypoglycaemic attacks in type 1 diabetic patients when, for a period of time, using Insulin Aspart at meals together with NPH insulin mornings and evenings, and when, in another period of time, using human fast-working insulin at meals and NPH insulin mornings and evenings, and when the patients in both periods simultaneously take extra insulin at meals if high blood glucose values are found be...
Meal composition is important for blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes. The aim of our study is to investigate if a meal composition of fat, protein and carbohydrate is important for the hormonal and inflammatory responses Patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and healthy controls will be included in the study. At four different occasions the participants will receive lunch with the same amount of calories but different composition of fat, protein, carbohydrate and f...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of meal size and texture on the levels of incretin hormone, GLP-1, after Gastric Bypass Surgery (GBP). Patterns of food intake change after bariatric surgery and patients often eat multiple small low-calorie meals, a pattern that may affect blood glucose as well as incretin levels. Whether the release of GLP-1 after an oral challenge or a single liquid meal has any physiological relevance in 'real life' setting of multiple sm...
This study examines the effects of carbohydrate type (high- or low-Glycemic Index (GI)) and amount (high- or low-Glycemic Load (GL)) have on blood glucose levels, blood pressure and arterial stiffness in healthy individuals. It will also determine whether subjective ratings such as test meal palatability and hunger are related to changes in blood glucose. The investigators hypothesize that: (1) High-GI meals, regardless of GL, will increase arterial stiffness; low-GI meals, reg...
This study is a 24-week crossover design study in adolescents enrolled in the 6-8th grade within the Center School District in the Kansas City, MO. This school will begin their 'Breakfast in the Classroom' program during the fall 2018 school year. Baseline data will be collected to include anthropometric measures, participant characteristics, and past eating habits. For the first 8 weeks, the students will be provided with breakfast meals containing the USDA nutrition requireme...
The purpose of this study is to assess the pharmacokinetic and safety profile of a single dose of oral treprostinil following four different meals of varying caloric and fat content.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether medically tailored meals (HDTM) can improve quality of life for patients with metastatic cancer.
The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of cooked navy bean powder or rice bran consumption on the stool microbiome and metabolome of colorectal cancer survivors and healthy adults.
This weight loss study will investigate the impact of calorie distribution across a day (large breakfast meals and smaller evening meals versus small breakfast meals and large evening meals) on body weight, and physiological and behavioral mechanisms regulating energy balance. Participants will undergo 2 x 4 week energy restriction protocols in a randomized cross over design; big breakfast (45% of calories in the morning meal, 20% at dinner) and big dinner (45% of calori...
Cancer patients receiving treatment such as chemotherapy experience a variety of symptoms that interfere with their appetite and their ability to eat and enjoy meals. Therefore, adapting meals in a way that responds to these symptoms might be a good strategy to improve patient satisfaction, nutritional status and hence, quality of life. In this vein, the investigators hypothesize that meals from FoodforCare at Home will contribute to the quality of life of advanced abdominal ca...
The hypothesis for this study is that women with different phyiologic subtypes of gestational diabetes (GDM) (insulin secretion deficit vs. insulin sensitivity deficit) will differ in their glycemic responses to meals with different portions of dietary macronutrients. Investigators will determine GDM subtype based on glucose and insulin levels taken at multiple time points during an oral glucose tolerance test. Participants will consume two meals with different macronutrient co...
The investigators evaluate gastric emptying time of common Korean meals (rice, noodles) in healthy volunteers.
This weight loss study will investigate the impact of diet composition and meal size (large breakfast meals and smaller evening meals) on body weight, energy balance and eating behaviour, by altering calorie (meal) distribution.
Many older people experience hyperlipidemia and hypertension, but, to date, there is little information regarding whether or not medical nutrition therapy (MNT) or therapeutic meals have an independent or joint beneficial impact on older people with these diagnoses. This report describes a clinical trial in which the investigators directly examined these issues. Two key clinical outcome measures include changes in diastolic blood pressure and total fasting serum cholesterol. In...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether attenuation/normalization of elevated blood sugar after meals ameliorates vessel wall (endothelial) function in individuals with insulin resistance.
