High intake of insoluble fiber is strongly associated with a reduced incidence of diabetes and cardiovascular events in prospective observation studies. Our primary objective is to compare a life style diabetes prevention program(PRAEDIAS) with and without added insoluble fibers in its effectiveness to prevent incident diabetes type 2 in high risk individuals with impaired glucose tolerance. Subjects with IGT not willing to participate in the intervention ... Read More

This protocol outlines a randomized,open label trial examining the safety, pharmacology and efficacy of Glucagon like peptide 2 (GLP-2) in infants and children with intestinal failure. The investigators hypothesize that GLP-2 given subcutaneously in these patients will be well tolerated, and have similar metabolism to what has been shown in adults. The investigators also expect to show an improvement in the tolerance of enteral nutrition, and a decreased ... Read More

The incidence of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) is in a continuous progression both in adults as in children. The colonoscopy is considered as the gold standard exam for the diagnosis and the follow-up of the patients presenting or suspected to have an IBD. The follow-up and financial management of this kind of pathology is very much dependent on the quality of the endoscopic images. Because colonoscopy is an expensive and invasive technique which assumes ... Read More

Short bowel syndrome (SBS) is a form of disease that results from removal of a significant portion of the intestine leading to poor nutrient absorption. Infants with short bowel syndrome suffer from diarrhea and poor growth. The care of these infants is limited by the lack of effective therapies. Soluble fiber (guar gum) is an indigestible form of sugar that is mostly contained in fruits and vegetables. Soluble fiber can reduce the severity and duration of ... Read More

At the present time, scientific consensus exists on obesity multifactorial etiopatogenia. As well, professionals and researchers agree that the treatment must approach several scopes, such as dietetic, physical activity, pharmacologic and surgical. These two last ones should not be the first election and must be reserved for those cases of morbid obesities or in case the previous ones have failed. The combination of diet and exercise is still not ... Read More

The Colorado Longitudinal Eating And Physical activity (LEAP) Study utilizes a social ecological approach to explore individual, family and environmental factors and their relationship to child weight status over a 3 year timeframe. Our primary research questions are as follows: 1. Are behavior changes (increased willingness to try new foods and gross motor skills) from a preschool nutrition and activity program, The Food Friends®, sustained through ... Read More

The prevalence of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) in Australia is approximately 5%-8%, with up to one third of all parous women who develop type 2 diabetes having a previous history of GDM. Research to determine strategies to delay or prevent the development of or progression to diabetes is vital, particularly in population groups that are at higher risk, such as GDM, and overweight women (BMI>=25). Currently, follow-up or post-partum support for women ... Read More

Meal size is strongly influenced by a number of external features of the food environment which can promote over-consumption, such as the availability of palatable energy dense foods. The current research aimed to investigate whether natural food-based differences in texture could be used to slow down eating rate and reduce intake from large portions and higher energy dense foods. A four-session randomised crossover study assessed the effect of faster vs. ... Read More

An early and efficient enteral nutritional support could improve the clinical outcomes of brain injured critically ill patients. Gastrointestinal feeding intolerance defined as an increased gastric residual volume frequently occurs in these patients. Previous experimental studies have suggested that a small-peptide enteral feeding formula could promote the gastric emptying compared to a whole-protein formula. An improved gastrointestinal tolerance of ... Read More

Malnutrition patients are known to have more postoperative complications and mortality. And most of hepatobiliary-pancreatic cancer surgeries accompany high postoperative morbidity and mortality rate. Therefore for the malnourished patients anticipating major surgery, preoperative nutritional support is recommended according to the ASPEN (American society of parenteral and enteral nutrition) and ESPEN (European society of parenteral and enteral nutrition) ...

The goal of this study is to examine if chronic cherry consumption will decrease lipid peroxidation and serum concentration of inflammatory markers in human subjects with elevated serum C reactive protein (CRP), and to examine the relationship between serum concentrations of CRP and polyphenols. The investigators hypothesize that cherry consumption will reduce serum concentration of inflammatory markers, including CRP, inflammatory cytokines and adhesion ... Read More
