  • Eating a healthy lunch improves serum alanine aminotransferase activity.
    Lipids in Health and Disease, 2013
    Co-Authors: Masako Iwamoto, Kaori Yagi, Kayoko Yazumi, Airi Komine, Bungo Shirouchi, Masao Sato

    Abstract:

    Background: Nutritional guidance and diet control play important roles in the treatment of obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver. However, in Japan, nutritional guidance is difficult to provide in practice. Therefore, we evaluated the effects of providing the ‘once-a-day’ intervention of a healthy lunch on various metabolic parameters. Methods: For a 1-month preparatory period, 10 subjects generally consumed the lunches that were provided by the worksite cafeteria. This was followed by a 1-week washout period, after which, the subjects consumed healthy, low-calorie , well-balanced lunches for a 1-month test period. After the preparatory and test periods, blood samples were obtained from all subjects. The serum levels of indices relevant to metabolic syndrome and fatty liver were measured. Results: Serum alanine aminotransferase activity significantly decreased by 20.3% after the healthy intervention. However, the indices of metabolic syndrome did not significantly change. Analysis of the relationship between serum alanine aminotransferase activity and nutrient content indicated that the improvement of serum alanine aminotransferase status was due to the higher vegetable content and lower AnimalSource Protein of the meals provided.

A diet high in vegetables and low in Animal-based Protein is important in maintaining a healthy condition.

  • Epidemiology of obesity and hypertension and related risk factors in Uzbekistan
    European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2006
    Co-Authors: V Mishra, F Arnold, G Semenov, R Hong, A Mukuria

    Abstract:

    Objective: This study examined the prevalence of obesity and hypertension and associated behavioral risk factors in adult men and women in Uzbekistan. The study also examined the association between obesity and hypertension. Method: The analysis used data from the 2002 Uzbekistan Health Examination Survey, which included a nationally representative sample of 2333 men aged 15–59 years and 5463 women aged 15–49 years. The survey measured height, weight and blood pressure and included questions on physical activity, dietary habits, tobacco smoking, alcohol use and other characteristics. The analysis was conducted using binary and multinomial logistic regression methods, separately for men and women. Results: Eating Animal Source Protein and tobacco smoking in the past were positively associated with obesity, but there were no consistent associations with other dietary indicators, physical activity level or alcohol use. Obese men and women were about three times as likely to suffer from hypertension as those with a normal BMI (odds ratio (OR)=3.01; 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.67–5.44; P

  • Epidemiology of Obesity and Hypertension in Uzbekistan

    Abstract:

    This study examines the prevalence of obesity and hypertension and associated behavioral risk factors in adult men and women in Uzbekistan. The study also estimates the effects of overweight and obesity on the risk of hypertension. The analysis used data from the 2002 Uzbekistan Health Examination Survey (UHES) which included a nationally representative sample of 2333 men age 15-59 and 5463 women age 15-49. The survey included questions on physical activity dietary habits tobacco smoking alcohol consumption and other risk factors as well as measurements of height weight and blood pressure for all survey respondents. The analysis was conducted using binary and multinomial logistic regression methods separately for men and women. Thirty-one percent of men age 15-59 and 28% of women age 15-49 in Uzbekistan are overweight or obese. Overweight men and women were more than twice as likely and obese men and women were more than six times as likely to suffer from hypertension as men and women with a normal body mass index (BMI). With various risk factors and background factors statistically controlled obese men and women remained about three times as likely to suffer from hypertension as men and women with a normal BMI (OR=3.01; 95% CI: 1.67-5.44 for men and OR=2.82; 95% CI: 2.05-3.86 for women). The adjusted effects of overweight on hypertension were also smaller than the unadjusted effects but remained positive and significant (OR=1.35 for men and OR=1.54 for women). For men the risk of hypertension was strongly positively associated with BMI only at BMI levels above 25 but for women a positive relationship was observed at all BMI levels. The study found no significant association between physical activity level and the risk of obesity or hypertension. Eating Animal Source Protein and tobacco smoking in the past were positively associated with obesity but there were no consistent associations with other dietary indicators or alcohol use. The study found a strong positive association between obesity and hypertension in adult men and women in Uzbekistan. The shape of the relationship between BMI and hypertension is different for women than for men. A lack of association with physical activity level and generally weak inconsistent associations with diet current smoking and alcohol use may be partly because some men and women may have altered their behavior after becoming obese or after being diagnosed with hypertension. Prospective cohort studies are needed to better understand the relationships between physical activity diet smoking and risks of obesity and hypertension. (authors)
