Obese HIV-positive women with Metabolic Syndrome (HIV-MS) and obese HIV-negative women with Metabolic Syndrome will be studied before and after achieving moderate (6%-8%) diet-induced weight loss. The investigators hypothesize that health markers will improve in both groups but that the improvement will be blunted in the women with HIV-MS. Read More

Respiratory failure is a common consequence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A concurrent metabolic alkalosis may worsen the respiratory failure, as a higher pH in blood (and thus in cerebrospinal fluid) results in a weaker respiratory drive. Use of diuretics is the most common cause of metabolic alkalosis. When a patient with an acute exacerbation of a respiratory failure is also alkalotic, there are (at least theoretical) reasons to lower ... Read More

The incidence of nephrolithiasis in children has been reported to increase by approximately 6-10% annually, and the incidence is currently 50 per 100,000 children with high recurrent rate. Investigators aimed to determine the metabolic risk factors in Chinese children through metabolic evaluation. In order to identify diagnostic criteria of hypocitraturia and hyperoxaluria in western country wether adapt to Chinese children, investigators aim to determine ... Read More

The aim of the study is to evaluate the effect of metformin on myocardial function, insulin resistance and selected metabolic markers in patients with type 2 diabetes and heart failure (HF+DM+) in a cross-over, randomized, placebo controlled trial. Hypothesis: Metformin treatment in HF+DM+ group will lead to better myocardial function and load tolerance in comparison to placebo. The degree of improvement will be linked to selected metabolic ...

: Although intervention or prevention with young children with T1DM may help ameliorate problems or forestall later problems in metabolic control, a number of potential barriers to research have constrained the development of such interventions. To assess the feasibility of intervening with young children and their families, we propose to conduct an exploratory pilot study of a behavioral intervention for young children (ages 7 to 11) newly diagnosed with ...

The primary objective of the study is to compare in a real-world setting the efficacy of traditional training (today's guideline, vigorously or moderate exercise) and amount of aerobic interval training (1-AIT) in reduction of risk factors constituting metabolic syndrome. The secondary objective is to compare the efficacy of traditional moderate training (today's guideline) and amount of aerobic interval training (1-AIT vs. 4-AIT) in improving aerobic ... Read More

The purpose of this study is determine the incidence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in people of high risk, of 40 or more years and attended in the Primary Care. Evaluating the association between anxiety, depression, quality of life and the vital stressful events, and the development of the metabolic syndrome in general population. Our hypothesis is that population of the cohort with bigger degree of stress will develop earlier the metabolic syndrome. ... Read More

Follow-up of two hospital-based patient cohorts (heart failure, metabolic comorbidities in CVD), recruited at baseline by the GANI_MED-project (Greifswald Approach to Individualized Medicine). Standardized protocols will be used for the assessment of medical history, laboratory biomarkers, and the collection of various biosamples for bio-banking purposes. Comparisons with the general background population will be performed. Read More

We are testing the safety and efficacy of a 16-wk yoga lifestyle intervention on oral glucose tolerance, fasting lipid/lipoprotein levels, body composition, cardiovascular function, quality of life, CD4+ T-cell counts and viral load in HIV-infected men and women with components of The Metabolic Syndrome. We hypothesize that a yoga lifestyle intervention will improve metabolic, anthropometric, cardiovascular disease parameters, and quality of life domains ... Read More
