The associations of longitudinal changes in consumption of total and types of #dairy products and markers of metabolic risk and #adiposity: findings from the European Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)–Norfolk study, United Kingdom

..For adiposity, an increase in fermented dairy products [yogurt (total or low-fat) or low-fat cheese] consumption was associated with a lower increase in body weight and body mass index (BMI). For example, over 3.7 y, increasing yogurt consumption by 1 serving/d was associated with a smaller increase in body weight by 0.23 kg (95% CI: −0.46, −0.01 kg). An increase in full-fat milk, high-fat cheese, … Continue reading The associations of longitudinal changes in consumption of total and types of #dairy products and markers of metabolic risk and #adiposity: findings from the European Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)–Norfolk study, United Kingdom

A 2-year Double-Blind RCT Follow-up Study with Fermented #Papaya Preparation (FPP) Modulating Key Markers in Middle-Age Subjects with Clustered #Neurodegenerative Disease-Risk Factors

In recent years a number of studies have reported the significant relationship between metabolic syndrome and neurodegenerative disease. There is accumulating evidence that the interplay of combined genetic and environmental risk factors (from diet to life style to pollutants) to intrinsic age-related oxi-inflammatory changes may be advocated for to explain the pandemic of neurodegenerative diseases. In recent years a specific Fermented Papaya Preparation (FPP) has … Continue reading A 2-year Double-Blind RCT Follow-up Study with Fermented #Papaya Preparation (FPP) Modulating Key Markers in Middle-Age Subjects with Clustered #Neurodegenerative Disease-Risk Factors

#Shift Workers at Risk for #Metabolic Syndrome

In this highly digitalized era, sleep disorders are becoming more common and are associated with an increased burden of chronic disease. Shift workers are at an increased risk for both sleep disorders and metabolic syndrome. In this article, the authors outline the connection between circadian discordance, hormonal imbalance, and the development of metabolic syndrome in shift workers. Based on a literature review of animal model … Continue reading #Shift Workers at Risk for #Metabolic Syndrome

Ten-Hour Time-Restricted Eating Reduces Weight, Blood Pressure, and Atherogenic Lipids in Patients with #Metabolic Syndrome

In animal models, time-restricted feeding (TRF) can prevent and reverse aspects of metabolic diseases. Time-restricted eating (TRE) in human pilot studies reduces the risks of metabolic diseases in otherwise healthy individuals… ..In a single-arm, paired-sample trial, 19 participants with metabolic syndrome and a baseline mean daily eating window of ≥14 h, the majority of whom were on a statin and/or antihypertensive therapy, underwent 10 h … Continue reading Ten-Hour Time-Restricted Eating Reduces Weight, Blood Pressure, and Atherogenic Lipids in Patients with #Metabolic Syndrome

Association between #dairy product consumption and #hyperuricemia in an elderly population with metabolic syndrome

The prevalence of hyperuricemia has increased substantially in recent decades. It has been suggested that it is an independent risk factor for weight gain, hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, metabolic syndrome (#MetS), and cardiovascular disease.. ..Participants in the upper quartile of the consumption of total dairy products (multiadjusted prevalence ratio (PR) = 0.84; 95% CI: 0.75–0.94; P-trend 0.02), low-fat dairy products (PR = 0.79; 95% CI: 0.70–0.89; P-trend … Continue reading Association between #dairy product consumption and #hyperuricemia in an elderly population with metabolic syndrome

Altered Risk for #cardiovascular Events With Changes in the #Metabolic Syndrome Status: A Nationwide Population-Based Study of Approximately 10 Million Persons

Population-scale evidence for the association between dynamic changes in metabolic syndrome (MetS) status and alterations in the risk for major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) is lacking ..At a median follow-up of 3.54 years, the MetS-recovery group (incidence rate, 4.55 per 1000 person-years) had a significantly lower MACE risk (adjusted IRR, 0.85 [95% CI, 0.83 to 0.87]) than that of the MetS-chronic group (incidence rate, 8.52 … Continue reading Altered Risk for #cardiovascular Events With Changes in the #Metabolic Syndrome Status: A Nationwide Population-Based Study of Approximately 10 Million Persons
