Metabolic syndrome consists of a group of co-occuring conditions that increase an individual's risk of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the short-term effectiveness of chloroquine, a protein-activation medication, at improving metabolic syndrome. Read More

The metabolic syndrome is a collection of related risk factors that predispose to the development of type 2 diabetes Mellitus and cardiovascular disease. The investigators will examine the hypothesis that the metabolic and genomic characteristics of patients with metabolic syndrome and/or diabetes that are at risk for developing complications differ from each other and can be detected using specific biomarkers in blood or in the exhaled breath. Early ... Read More

Aims - assessment of renal artery stenosis incidence in consecutive AMI patients included in the Romanian National Programme of Primary Percutaneous Revascularisation; - generating a cardio-renal-metabolic profile in patients with renal atherosclerotic disease; - creating a local registry (based on European CARDS percutaneous interventional registries) which also includes renal, metabolic and vascular data; - ...

An educational intervention in the General Medicine Clinic aimed at both primary care providers (PCPs) and their patients with metabolic syndrome/pre-diabetes (MetSyn/PDM). Improving PCPs ability to detect and manage MetSyn/PDM, as measured by the increased incorporation of MetSyn/PDM into PCPs care plan, and increasing patients' awareness of healthy lifestyle behaviors results in positive patient health behaviors and outcomes.

The purpose of this research study is to examine whether sugar-replacement sweeteners that are currently on the market (ex. Sucralose, which is in Splenda) change how well the body works to control blood sugar. Read More

Five factor consisting of Metabolic syndrome is closely linked by insulin resistance. Until now, several studies have been performed about effects of Korea red ginseng on hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia, but not metabolic syndrome. The investigators hypothesize that Korean red ginseng could improve each constituents of metabolic syndrome, arterial stiffness, and inflammatory markers. The aim of this study is to determine effects of Korean red ... Read More

The objective is to develop a new metabolic flexibility biomarker, which has application in the study of changes diet and exercise on fuel management in humans. The new biomarker involves the characterization of an individual's metabolic flexibility utilizing room calorimeters rather than the current method, which is based on glucose clamp data. It is hypothesized that this new metabolic flexibility method will be a useful and noninvasive biomarker for ... Read More

The metabolic syndrome is a highly prevalent disorder, which causes atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and is closely associated with insulin resistance. The alteration of the secretion of adipocytokines from accumulated visceral adipose tissue in the obese induces insulin resistance. The purpose of this study is to identify gene polymorphisms that confer susceptibility to the metabolic syndrome and to make up a new health guidance program based on ... Read More

This is a randomized controlled Trial to evaluate effect of a culturally and linguistically tailored, telephone-delivered behavioral intervention on adherence to recommended assessment and treatment of sleep apnea in Blacks with Metabolic Syndrome. The investigators believe low awareness of Sleep Apnea and the risk it imposes to an individual health plays an important role in underdiagnosis and low adherence to treatment among Blacks. Hence, culturally and ... Read More

The aim of this study is to assess the frequency of metabolic syndrome in Down syndrome patients because the prevalence of diabetes mellitus and obesity is higher in individuals with Down syndrome than in the general population. Read More

A growing number of people in this country are overweight or obese. This is concerning as increasing weight has been shown to increase the risk of developing heart failure. However, there is also research to suggest that in people who already have heart failure, heavier people live longer. So, how does being overweight put a person at risk for heart failure, but once they have heart failure, protect them? There is no clear explanation for this dilemma. ... Read More

Heart failure is a condition where the heart does not pump enough blood to the rest of the body. People with heart failure may have another condition called the "metabolic syndrome"( having excess fat in the belly, high blood pressure, high fat in the blood, low level of good cholesterol and high blood sugar). People who have both heart failure and the metabolic syndrome often see many doctors. A new clinic has been formed at Ben Taub General Hospital that ... Read More

Chloride-rich isotonic crystalloid solutions have been shown to exert electrolyte imbalance and metabolic acidosis in critically ill patients. The aim of this investigation is to compare the influence of 0.9% saline and plasmalyte solution on acid-base balance and electrolytes in healthy patients undergoing major spine surgeries. Read More

We, the investigators at National Taiwan University Hospital, want to compare patients' islet cell function, insulin sensitivity and risk of chronic complications with normal subjects. Moreover, we want to examine whether they are at a higher risk of having metabolic syndrome and to answer whether we should screen the phenotypes of metabolic syndrome in impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) patients. Then, we want to examine the ... Read More
