Exercise is known to induce the oxidation of blood low-molecular-weight (LMW) thiols such as reduced glutathione (GSH). We previously reported that full-marathon running induced a decrease in human plasma levels of protein-bound sulfhydryl groups (p-SHs). Moderate exercise, a 30-min running at the intensity of the individual ventilatory threshold, performed(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to examine whether, on the basis of the relationship between sensors attached on the upper limbs and energy expenditure (EE) at the time of wheelchair propulsion, there are differences in the measurement of EE depending on the sensor attachment site and whether addition of the angular velocity information to the acceleration value(More)
Physical exercise can induce oxidative stress in humans. We studied the influence of aerobic exercise on the status of plasma protein-bound sulfhydryl groups in seven moderately-trained male college students who participated in a full marathon race. The plasma protein-bound sulfhydryl group values were significantly declined immediately after the race(More)
Ascorbic acid (AA) metabolism in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats was determined by examining urinary excretion, renal reabsorption, reductive regeneration, and biosynthesis of AA at 3 and 14 days after STZ administration. AA concentrations in the plasma, liver, and kidney of the diabetic rats were significantly lower than those of controls on d(More)
Ascorbic acid (AA) is a naturally occurring major antioxidant that is essential for the scavenging of toxic free radicals in both plasma and tissues. AA levels in plasma and tissues have been reported to be significantly lower than normal in diabetic animals and humans, and might contribute to the complications found at the late stages of diabetes. In this(More)
STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional study. OBJECTIVES (1) To examine the association between social participation (SP) and social support (SS) with self-rated health and dietary satisfaction and (2) to explore the joint association and interactions of SP and SS with self-rated health and dietary satisfaction in community-dwelling adult men with spinal cord(More)
BACKGROUND Socioeconomic inequalities as social determinants of health are important issues in public health and health promotion. However, the association between socioeconomic status and eating behaviors has been investigated poorly in Japanese adults. To fill this gap, the present study examines the association of eating behaviors with household income(More)
STUDY DESIGN This is a cross-sectional study. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to ascertain the essential items mediating adequate dietary intake based on the Japanese Food Guide in common among the transtheoretical model (TTM), self-efficacy (SE) and outcome expectancy (OE). SETTING Members of the organization Spinal Injuries Japan. METHODS(More)
STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional. OBJECTIVES To examine the association between health-related quality of life (HRQOL)/dietary satisfaction and perceived food environment in community-dwelling individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). SETTING Members of the Spinal Injuries Japan organization. METHODS Subjects were 2007 Japanese individuals with SCI. A(More)
