Obesity is considered to be accompanied by a chronic low-grade inflammatory state that contributes to the occurrence of many chronic diseases. Our previous study has demonstrated that histidine supplementation significantly ameliorates inflammation and oxidative stress in obese women. However, the in vivo potential mechanisms are not known. The present(More)
OBJECTIVE Vitamin D may have protective effects against type 1 diabetes (T1D). However, the results of current cross-sectional studies have been inconsistent. We aimed to examine the association of serum vitamin D and T1D by conducting a meta-analysis. METHODS Multiple databases were searched until April 2014 to identify relevant studies. The search term(More)
As consumption of tea has been confirmed as a protective factor for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), it would be interesting to know if T2DM patients could benefit from tea. Because of small sample sizes and inconsistent results of previous studies, we performed this meta-analysis to reevaluate the effects of tea or tea extract on all available outcomes in(More)
AIMS Visceral adipose tissue-derived serpin (vaspin) was identified as a new adipocytokine. Many studies reported vaspin concentrations in obese subjects and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients. However, large variation in levels of vaspin seen in different studies may be attributable to differences of sample size. The aim of this study is to establish(More)
This paper was designed to study metabolomic characters of the high-fat diet (HFD)-induced hyperlipidemia and the intervention effects of Mangiferin (MG). In this study, we aimed to investigate the intervention of MG on rats with hyperlipidemia induced by HFD and explore the possible mechanisms of hyperlipidemia. Urine metabolic profiles were analyzed using(More)
AIM Body weight gain adds risk for metabolic disorders and there are different metabolic changes in earlier and later adulthood. However, its impact on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) was indeterminate. The aim of current study was to evaluate the impact of body weight gain on NAFLD and metabolic syndrome (MetS) during overall, earlier (25-40y)(More)
Dietary habits are crucial in the progression of hepatic lipid accumulation and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, there are limited studies using ¹H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (¹H-MRS) and dual-echo in-phase and out-phase magnetic resonance spectroscopy imaging (dual-echo MRI) to assess the effects of dietary nutrient intakes on(More)
AIM To evaluate circulating amino acids (AA) profiles in obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2D) and metabolic syndrome (MetS). METHODS Serum AA were profiled among 200; healthy, obese, T2D and MetS subjects matched by sex, age and BMI using ultra-high performance liquid chromatography tandem quadruple mass spectrometry (UPLC-TQ-MS). A meta-analysis, including 47(More)
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) given its association with obesity and diabetes may perhaps exert distinct free fatty acids (FFA) pattern, but the understanding of this phenomenon is limited. To this effect, we evaluated FFA profiles among healthy subjects and NAFLD patients stratified by body weight, to identify FFA valuable for early diagnosis(More)
As a clean energy source and industrial material, hydrogen is very valuable. Electrolysis of water and chemical methods are well-known for producing hydrogen, however, all of these methods need additional energy supply. Besides highly energy cost, the chemical methods will lead to serious environment pollution. Compared with traditional methods, biological(More)
