Serum TSH, 25(OH) D and phosphorus levels predict weight loss in individuals with diabetes/prediabetes and morbid obesity: a single-center retrospective cohort analysis

Abstract Background: The aim of this paper was to investigate the relationship between vitamin D and thyroid-stimulating hormone in patients with diabetes/prediabetes and Class II/III obesity. Patients were stratified by WL% percentages as the majority of obesity management trials define success as u2018at least 10% of WL relative to baselineu2019. Following the message, Group 1 lost 26510% body weight, Group 2 lost 10% body mass, and Group 3 gained weight by the fourth visit, while Group 3 gained weight by the final visit. The serum thyroid hormone and parathyroid hormone levels in groups 1 and 2 decreased, along with increased amounts of free thyroxine, calcium, phosphorus, and 25-hydroxyvitamin D. However, if patients with autoimmune thyroiditis were excluded from the study, the decline in TSH levels was not statistically significant. Greater WL% is associated with greater phosphorus content within the reference range and a high vitamin D status.

Are body weight changes depressogenic? Even intentional weight loss correlates with increased depressive symptomatology among overweight or obese adults in the United States

Methods: As part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in years 2009-2012, community-sampled adults who were overweight or obese completed questionnaires of weight loss goals, weight loss plans, and weight loss strategies over the past year, as well as current depressive symptomatology. Both weight gain and loss were linked to greater depressive symptoms, especially among adults who wanted to lose weight and those who did not. Some weight loss products were associated with reduced depressive symptoms, but others were more correlated with greater depressive symptoms. Limitations: The results from this cross-sectional observational study revealed that weight loss and weight loss techniques with depressive symptoms are linked to depressive symptoms. However, depressive symptoms could exacerbate weight loss.

Effect of Weight Loss on Early Left Atrial Myopathy in People With Obesity But No Established Cardiovascular Disease

Methods and Results Forty-u2010five people with severe obesity without well established cardiovascular disease underwent cardiac magnetic resonance imaging for quantification of LA and left ventricular size and function before and during a median of 373 days following either a low glycemic index diet or bariatric surgery, respectively. At baseline, people with obesity reduced LA reservoir operation, increased mass, and LA maximum volume, but not so much emptying. On average, weight loss led to a significant decrease in LA maximum volume and left ventricular mass, but in those at the upper end of weight loss, significant improvement of the LA reservoir function was only observed. Following weight loss, we found an average rise in left ventricular mass in comparison to controls but there were no apparent differences in LA maximum volume and strain function.

Dead weight loss associated with economic efficiency use of esticides in Indonesian rice production

A health cost and consumer willingness to pay for a kg decrease in pesticide use is estimated using a production function, and the economic value of the adverse effects on human health and the environment are represented by a health cost and consumer willingness to pay for a reduction in pesticide use. The paper uses farm level crosssectional and time series data on rice production to determine the benefit of pesticides.

A representative percentile chart for prediction of weight loss trend after sleeve gastrectomy

Introduction: During the post-surgery process, it may be useful for surgeons and patients to use one chart in various groups and measure weight loss. Methods: This retrospective review used the Iran National Obesity Surgery Database. Patients with clinically elevated obesity aged 18-70 and undergoing sleeve gastrectomy were included in this study. Body mass Index reduction and five other measures recorded during the study period were calculated using the LMS method. BMI reduction is the most appropriate metric according to the lowest bias values and its variability among all the metrics, according to the statistical analysis.

Efficacy and safety of intragastric balloon therapy compared to a multidisciplinary weight loss program (OPTIFAST) in a real-world population – a propensity score matching analysis

Endoscopy and hypocaloric diets are two of many techniques used in patients who are unable to or unwilling to undergo obesity surgery. In this report, we compared the success, safety, and cost-effectiveness of the hypocaloric OPTIFAST program for weight loss with endoscopic intragastric balloon placement for weight loss. Methods: Participants with a BMI of 30-55 kg/m2, aged 18 to 70 years, were exposed to OPT or IGB for 26 weeks, followed by a weight maintenance program. The study findings revealed percentage excess body weight loss, total body weight gain, and percentage total body weight loss. Compared to 12. 0 % for IGB, OPT was 18. 2 % at 52 weeks, versus 19. 0 % for IGB. Compared to the IGB group, the OPT cohort had significantly fewer adverse events than the IGB group.

Fermentation weight loss, fermentation quality, and bacterial community of ensiling of sweet sorghum with lactic acid bacteria at different silo densities

Sweet sorghum is a staple forage in arid and semi-arid climatic zones. This research was designed to reveal the fermentation weight loss, fermentation quality, and bacterial community of ensiling sweet sorghum with lactic acid bacteria LAB at various silo densities. In fresh forage, the total number of Lactiplantibacillus and Lentilactobacillus was less than 1%. In the silage in densities of 700 and 750 kg/m3 based on increasing Lentilactobacillus abundance and decreased Lactiplantibacillus abundance in each silo density and reduced Lactiplantibacillus abundance in inoculated silages, as a result of decreasing silo density and reduced Lactiplantibacillus abundance and reduced Inoculated silages, increasing Lentilactobacillus bacillus Overall, sweet sorghum silage delivered good fermentation quality, with a density of no more than 650 kg/m3 and reduced FWL. In addition, increasing Lentilactobacillus numbers and decreasing Lactibacillus abundance can all be factors that contribute to declining Lactiplantibacillus abundance and increasing Lentilactobacillus numbers.

Novel weight loss diet attenuates dietary-induced obesity in mice and might correlate with altered gut microbiota and metabolite profiles

Although many dietary habits have been tested for weight loss, several limitations have existed, including gluten. We therefore created a novel weight loss diet with carbohydrate, protein, and fat content of 45%, 20%, and 35%, respectively. The saturated fatty acids: monounsaturated fatty acids ratio was 1:2:1, with the insoluble: soluble dietary fiber ratio 2:1. We wanted to investigate the effect of NWLD on weight loss and learn the underlying metabolic pathways. Nine mice were fed ordinary food in a blank control group, and the rest were fed a high-fat diet to develop obese mouse models. Kidney function indicators were also evaluated. The results indicated that the NWLD attenuated HFD-induced weight gain, serum triglycerides, and inflammation factors, as well as other inflammatory factors. NWLD may be a safe nutritional supplement for treating dietary-induced obesity, according to the results of this study.

Metabolomic profiling identifies complex lipid species and amino acid analogues associated with response to weight loss interventions.

We also wanted to find metabolic biomarkers that are associated with healthy weight loss and obesity reduction, as well as individuals with obesity who would benefit from a particular type of intervention. From three separate weight loss experiments: WLM, STRRIDE-PD, and CBD, three different fat loss studies were used to analyze 765 metabolites in baseline plasma. Our findings reveal novel metabolic pathways associated with heterogeneity in reaction to weight loss therapies, as well as related biomarkers that may be used in future studies of personalized weight loss interventions.
