Metabolic syndrome is a clustering of abnormalities that includes obesity, hyperglycemia, high blood pressure, and atherogenic dyslipidemia. Advances in scientific knowledge, the increasing prevalence of obesity, and the disorder's role in contributing to cardiovascular disease and diabetes are fueling interest in metabolic syndrome.
Neanderthals' gut microbiota already included some beneficial micro-organisms that are also found in our own intestine.
A Brazilian study published in the journal Molecular Human Reproduction helps understand why obese mothers tend to have children with a propensity to develop the metabolic disease during their lifetime, as suggested by previous research.
Metabolites are essentially organic molecules that are formed or participate during the biochemical reactions that continuously occur in an organism.
Researchers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus have discovered that fructose stimulates the release of vasopressin, a hormone linked to obesity and diabetes.
Researchers from Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) identify a novel mechanism by which periodontal disease may cause diabetes
A clinical study with 1002 patients with heart disease shows the advantages of a Mediterranean diet compared to a low-fat diet.
A research team from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona - Spain) has observed that following a diet rich in fats and sugars from ultra-processed foods (such as sweet rolls and pastries) for a six-week period increases the number of inflammatory molecules in the organism, which increases the excitability of the muscle nerves.
Diabetes, obesity and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are all common diseases that can lead to serious health implications.
Adopting a plant-based diet can help promote healthful aging and mitigate the global burden of disease, according to an editorial published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.
Obesity is usually categorized into metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) and also into an unhealthy version of obesity.
A team of researchers has developed an accurate blood test to track individual fat intake, a tool that could guide public health policy on healthy eating.
McMaster University researchers have developed a precise and reliable blood test to monitor the intake of fats by individuals. This blood test may serve as a tool to guide public health policy related to healthy eating.
Researchers in Pennsylvania and Texas have discovered a novel protein sensor that limits the amounts of fat and sugar that are converted into energy by human cells, during the starvation periods.
Researchers have confirmed that Orujo olive oil produces a significant reduction in obesity and inflammatory complications in obese mice.
Researchers have successfully identified novel compounds to prolong the period of the circadian clock and have also explained their mechanisms of action.
An animal study has found that obese females who consumed a small amount of coconut oil every day, in spite of having a high-fat diet, exhibited reduced metabolic syndrome—several risk factors that increase the possibilities of developing heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
Scientists have established a lipidomic method that proved successful in the analysis of human subcutaneous adipose biopsies.
