Swedish Agency for Health Technology Assessment and Assessment of Social Services The effect of the mandometer method in the treatment of eating disorders and obesity Share: Reading time approx. 1 minute Eating (...) disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are a serious health problem in adolescents, especially for girls. At the same time, the problem of excessive obesity and obesity has grown into a public health problem. The mandometer method was developed as part of the treatment of eating disorders to teach patients to normalize their eating behavior and to recognize their hunger signals using a computer, a Mandometer. This method is now used to treat both eating disorders and obesity

142. The effect of the solution-focused approach on nutrition-exercise attitudes and behaviours of overweight and obese adolescents: Randomised controlled trial (Abstract)

The effect of the solution-focused approach on nutrition-exercise attitudes and behaviours of overweight and obese adolescents: Randomised controlled trial To assess the effect of the solution-focused approach interview technique on overweight/obese adolescents' nutrition-exercise attitudes and behaviours.Obesity is a serious health problem for all age groups, particularly adolescents; therefore, it is important for adolescents to develop healthy nutrition habits and acquire exercise behaviours (...) . Unless healthy nutrition-exercise behaviours are acquired, obesity can develop in adolescence, continue in adulthood. Focusing on solutions can be effective for overweight/obese adolescents to develop healthy nutrition-exercise behaviours.A pretest-post-test randomised controlled trial design was used.The study included 32 overweight/obese adolescents (16 for intervention group, 16 for control group) aged 12-13 years who attended a health centre and met the inclusion criteria.

143. A randomized trial of phenylephrine infusion versus bolus dosing for nausea and vomiting during Cesarean delivery in obese women Full Text available with Trip Pro

A randomized trial of phenylephrine infusion versus bolus dosing for nausea and vomiting during Cesarean delivery in obese women Hypotension is common after spinal anesthesia for Cesarean delivery. It is associated with nausea, vomiting, and fetal acidosis. Previous research on phenylephrine excluded obese subjects. We compared the incidence of intraoperative nausea and vomiting (IONV) in obese patients who received a prophylactic phenylephrine infusion vs those who received bolus dosing (...) for the treatment of spinal-induced hypotension.In this multicentre, double-blinded randomized controlled trial, 160 obese women undergoing elective Cesarean delivery under spinal anesthesia were randomized to receive a prophylactic phenylephrine infusion initiated at 50 μg·min-1 (and titrated according to a predefined algorithm) or 100 μg phenylephrine boluses to treat hypotension. Maternal systolic blood pressure was maintained within 20% of baseline. The primary study outcome was the incidence

144. Whole-genome transcriptomic insights into protective molecular mechanisms in metabolically healthy obese African Americans Full Text available with Trip Pro

Whole-genome transcriptomic insights into protective molecular mechanisms in metabolically healthy obese African Americans Several clinical guidelines have been proposed to distinguish metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) from other subgroups of obesity but the molecular mechanisms by which MHO individuals remain metabolically healthy despite having a high fat mass are yet to be elucidated. We conducted the first whole blood transcriptomic study designed to identify specific sets of genes (...) that might shed novel insights into the molecular mechanisms that protect or delay the occurrence of obesity-related co-morbidities in MHO. The study included 29 African-American obese individuals, 8 MHO and 21 metabolically abnormal obese (MAO). Unbiased transcriptome-wide network analysis was carried out to identify molecular modules of co-expressed genes that are collectively associated with MHO. Network analysis identified a group of 23 co-expressed genes, including ribosomal protein genes (RPs

Logistic regression analyses were used to analyze alleles and genotypes distribution. Anthropometrics and clinical variables among different genotype carriers were compared by univariate analyses. All statistical analysis was performed using SPSS v (...) Genetic association of liver X receptor beta rs2695121 polymorphism with obesity-related traits in a northeastern Iranian population Liver X receptor Beta (LXRβ), located in an obesity susceptible region, has been shown to be involved in the metabolism of lipid and carbohydrates. Previous human genetic studies have suggested genetic variability of LXRβ could be associated with human obesity. Therefore, we hypothesized that LXRβ gene rs2695121 polymorphism may be associated with the risk

Pyrroloquinoline quinone prevents developmental programming of microbial dysbiosis and macrophage polarization to attenuate liver fibrosis in offspring of obese mice Increasingly, evidence suggests that exposure to maternal obesity creates an inflammatory environment in utero, exerting long-lasting postnatal signatures on the juvenile innate immune system and microbiome that may predispose offspring to development of fatty liver disease. We found that exposure to a maternal Western-style diet (...) early weaning may alleviate the sustained proinflammatory environment, preventing the rapid progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis in offspring of obese mothers.

The influence of obesity on operating room time and perioperative complications in cochlear implantation The rising incidence of obesity in the United States is associated with increased healthcare expenditures and resource allocation. Obesity has been associated with prolonged operating times during surgical procedures. The primary objective of this study is to compare body mass index (BMI) to length of surgery during cochlear implantation.A retrospective case control study from a tertiary (...) academic referral center was performed. Patients included were adults who underwent primary, single-sided cochlear implantation with documented BMI and operating room (OR) times from January 2009 to July 2015. The following data were collected: BMI, total operating room time (TORT), surgical operating room time (SORT), ASA status, perioperative and postoperative complications, age, and gender.Two hundreds and thirty-four patients were included and stratified into obese (BMI >30) and non-obese (BMI < 30

Low NT‐proBNP levels in overweight and obese patients do not rule out a diagnosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is a heterogeneous syndrome that presents clinicians with a diagnostic challenge. The use of natriuretic peptides to exclude a diagnosis of HFpEF has been proposed. We sought to compare HFpEF patients with N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) level above and below the proposed cut-off.Stable (...) patients (n = 30) with left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction ≥ 50% were eligible if they had a diagnosis of HF according to the European Society of Cardiology diagnostic criteria. Characteristics of patients with NT-proBNP below (≤125 pg/mL) and above (>125 pg/mL) the diagnostic criterion were compared.There were 19 (66%) women with median age 54 years. Half were African American (16, 53%), and most were obese. There were no significant differences in clinical characteristics or medication use
