Lap Band Surgery Benefits Very Obese Adolescents

Lap band surgery has significant benefits for severely obese teenagers and, despite its controversial nature, should still be considered as a first option to manage obesity during adolescence, a new study has found.

Exercise … It Does a Body Good: 20 Minutes Can Act as Anti-Inflammatory

physiotherapy.jpg

It’s well known that regular physical activity has health benefits, including weight control, strengthening the heart, bones and muscles and reducing the risk of certain diseases. Recently, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine found how just one session of moderate exercise can also act as an anti-inflammatory. The findings have encouraging implications for chronic diseases like arthritis, fibromyalgia and for more pervasive conditions, such as obesity.

Diet Helps Shed Pounds, Release Toxins and Reduce Oxidative Stress

Research by Skidmore College exercise scientist Paul Arciero has found that a balanced, protein-pacing, low-calorie diet that includes intermittent fasting not only achieves long-term weight loss, but also helps release toxins in the form of PCBs from the body fat stores, in addition to enhancing heart health and reducing oxidative stress.

Karla Kerlikowske, MD, and team recently published a paper in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute that examined the role of common risk factors in the development of ER-positive and ER-negative breast cancers. The study sheds new light on how a woman’s age, weight, and menopausal status affect her risk for breast cancer. Dr. Kerlikowske discusses the findings below.

Time-Restricted Feeding Study Shows Promise in Helping People Shed Body Fat

For the first time in humans, it has been reported that eating early in the day lessens daily swings in hunger and changes the 24-hour pattern of fat oxidation and energy metabolism, which may aid in weight loss

The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology: Gastric Bypass Helps Severely Obese Teenagers Maintain Weight Loss Over Long Term

Gastric bypass surgery helps severely obese teenagers lose weight and keep it off, according to the first long-term follow-up studies of teenagers who had undergone the procedure 5-12 years earlier. However, the two studies, published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, show some patients will likely need further surgery to deal with the complications of rapid weight loss or may develop vitamin deficiencies later in life.

Weight Loss and Its Cardiovascular Benefits Continue for Five Years in Real-World Clinical Practice

Participants in Joslin's Why WAIT (Weight Achievement and Intensive Management) program lost substantial amounts of weight, and even those who maintained relatively little loss of weight after five years demonstrated reduced risks of cardiovascular disease.

Research Examines Brain Locations That Control Diabetes Drugs’ Weight Loss Effects

Certain type 2 diabetes drugs promote weight loss, but how they do this remains poorly understood. Insight into how these drugs work in the body—and especially the brain—could help create new drugs that effectively control body weight. In an important advance on that front, a new study from Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) shows that these drugs, called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs), reduce body mass by targeting a different part of the brain than previously thought.

Sustainable eating Meals based on legumes such as beans and peas are more satiating than pork and veal-based meals according to a recent study by the University of Copenhagen's Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports. Results suggest that sustainable eating may also help with weight loss.

Insurance Coverage of Obesity, Lack of Formal Diagnosis Emerge as Top Barriers to Getting Professional Weight Loss Help

InsuranceCoverageBarrierInfoGraphicFINAL-01.jpg

Improving health insurance coverage for weight loss services could help people struggling with obesity lose weight, according to a new survey of non-physician health professionals (HPs). A second study found that three out of four patients are affected by obesity or overweight, yet less than half (48%) of these patients with a BMI higher than 30 received a formal diagnosis of obesity.

A Functioning Circadian Clock May Help Maximize Weight Loss Following Bariatric Surgery

A newly released basic science study of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) suggests that a functioning circadian clock, or sleeping at night and being awake during the day, can help patients achieve a higher amount of weight loss following the surgery. The study conducted in a mouse model is one of the first to shed light on how researchers and clinicians might continue to improve the outcomes following RYGB by correcting disruptions to the circadian clock.

Childhood Obesity Increases During Summer Breaks

Children are at greater risk of gaining unhealthy amounts of weight during summer vacation than during the school year, according to a new study published in the Obesity journal and presented at ObesityWeek 2016. Researchers studied more than 18,000 kindergartners over two years and found that obesity increased only during the two summer vacations, and not at all during the school years.

10-Year Data Shows Gastric Bypass Patients Significantly Reduce Risk of Dying From Obesity and Other Diseases, New Study Suggests

Patients with severe obesity who have gastric bypass surgery reduce their risk of dying from obesity and other diseases by 48 percent up to 10 years after surgery, compared to similar patients who do not undergo the procedure, according to new research* presented today at ObesityWeek 2016, the largest international event focused on the basic science, clinical application and prevention and treatment of obesity.
