Data suggest women are more sensitive to the lipolytic action of epinephrine compared with men while maintaining similar glucoregulatory effects (Horton et al. J Appl Physiol 107: 200-210, 2009). This study aimed to determine the specific adrenergic receptor(s) that may mediate these sex differences. Lean women (n = 14) and men (n = 16) were studied on 4(More)
BACKGROUND HIV lipodystrophy and other lipodystrophy syndromes are characterized by extensive loss of subcutaneous adipose tissue. Lipodystrophy syndromes are also associated with increased resting energy expenditure (REE). This hypermetabolism may be an adaptive response to an inability to store triacylglycerol fuel in a normal manner. OBJECTIVE This(More)
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute developed the Honoring the Gift of Heart Health (HGHH) curriculum to promote cardiovascular knowledge and heart-healthy lifestyles among American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs). Using data from a small randomized trial designed to reduce diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk among overweight/obese(More)
OBJECTIVE Exercise has been suggested to have cardioprotective benefits due to a lowering of postprandial triglycerides (PPTG). We hypothesized that a morning exercise bout would significantly lower PPTG measured over a full day, in response to moderate fat meals (35% energy) in men more so than women, and in metabolic syndrome (MetS) relative to normal(More)
We have previously shown that resting energy expenditure (REE) is increased in patients with HIV lipodystrophy. This hypermetabolism could be the result of an inadequate storage capacity for lipid fuel secondary to atrophy of the subcutaneous adipose tissue depot. Therefore, energy restriction may be able to alleviate this hypermetabolism. To test this(More)
