How appetite-stimulating brain cells work overtime during fasting

...erplay between local T3 production and UCP2 during fasting and reveals a central thermogenic-like mechanism in the regulation of food intake." While it is as yet unproven, the rise in UCP2 in the brain likely also causes changes in temperature in the same way that UCP1 does in brown fat, Diano said. "...

Phthalates now linked to fat, related health risks

...nd waist circumference. Of these men, 651 also had fasting glucose and insulin levels required to calculate insulin resistance. The analysis found that, as expected, several phthalate metabolites showed a positive correlation with abdominal obesity. Indeed, men with the highest levels of phthalates in the...

High estrogen levels associated with dementia in older men

...f dementia at baseline in 1991-1993, at which time fasting blood samples were drawn. The researchers measured the levels of testosterone and estradiol, the major estrogen in humans, in the samples and the men were reexamined for evidence of cognitive decline or dementia in 1994-1996 and 1997-1999 using the C...

Chewing up a key regulator of fat synthesis keeps mice lean despite a high-fat diet

...ing the TRB3 pathway artificially "on" during both fasting and feeding might melt away fat depots. And that's exactly what happened. Mice genetically engineered to express permanently elevated levels of TRB3 protein in fat tissue were 10-20 percent skinnier than normal mice. "Even when we put them on a high...

One-third of adults with diabetes still don't know they have it

...adults age 20 and older continued to have impaired fasting glucose (IFG), a form of pre-diabetes. IFG, in which blood glucose measured after an overnight fast is high but not yet diagnostic of diabetes, increases the risk of heart disease as well as the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. "It's important...

After fasting overnight, the participants reported to the hospital, where they ate a breakfast of 60 grams of white bread with 40 milliliters of virgin olive oil, a relatively high-fat meal. The meals also included vitamin A supplementation. Over the next four hou...
