Effect of Oral Administration of Weissella confusa on Fecal and Plasma Ethanol Concentrations, Lipids and Glucose Metabolism in Wistar Rats Fed High Fructose and Fat Diet
This is the first in vivo trial demonstrating that heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria lacking the mannitol pathway (like W. confusa) can increase fecal and blood ethanol concentrations in mammals on a high fructose-high fat diet. Expand


Fructose overconsumption causes dyslipidemia and ectopic lipid deposition in healthy subjects with and without a family history of type 2 diabetes.
A 7-d high-fructose diet increased ectopic lipid deposition in liver and muscle and fasting VLDL-triacylglycerols and decreased hepatic insulin sensitivity in healthy offspring of patients with type 2 diabetes, suggesting that these individuals may be more prone to developing dyslipidemia when challenged by high fructose intakes.

Orlistat, a New Lipase Inhibitor for the Management of Obesity
The potential for severe gastrointestinal discomfort and the modest degree of weight loss may limit the agent's clinical utility, while its long‐term safety and effectiveness for weight maintenance, cost‐effectiveness of treatment, and overall reduction in obesity‐related morbidity and mortality remain to be determined.

Postprandial Hypertriglyceridemia and Insulin Resistance in Normoglycemic First-Degree Relatives of Patients with Type 2 Diabetes
This study assessed insulin sensitivity and postprandial triglyceride response in healthy first-degree male relatives of patients with type 2 diabetes and a group of carefully matched controls who had no known genetic predisposition for diabetes. Expand
Preliminary hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic activities of the aqueousseed extract of Carica papaya Linn. in Wistar rats
It is shown that CPE has nephroprotective effect on CCl4 renal injured rats, an effect which could be mediated by any of the phytocomponents present in it via either antioxidant and/or free radicalscavenging mechanism(s). Expand
Lapacho Tea (Tabebuia impetiginosa) Extract Inhibits Pancreatic Lipase and Delays Postprandial Triglyceride Increase in Rats
The results showed that out of all the extracts, the bark of Tabebuia impetiginosa led to a significant delay in the postprandial increase of plasma triglycerides, and lapachol, which is contained in the bark and soluble in ethanol, had no lipase inhibitory effect in vitro and hence this substance did not seem to mediate the pertinent effect.

Pioglitazone reduces atherogenic index of plasma in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Pioglitazone reduced AIP when used as monotherapy or in combination therapy with sulfonylurea, metformin, or insulin, and was inversely correlated with measures of insulin sensitivity. Expand
Myopathy and rhabdomyolysis with lipid-lowering drugs.
Though interactions on metabolism and ensuing high plasma levels can partially explain myopathy as intoxication, there are strong indications that other (endocrine, metabolic, genetic) factors might play a role in the pathophysiology. Expand
Insulin Resistance: A Multifaceted Syndrome Responsible for NIDDM, Obesity, Hypertension, Dyslipidemia, and Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease
In summary, insulin resistance appears to be a syndrome that is associated with a clustering of metabolic disorders, including non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, obesity, hypertension, lipid abnormalities, and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Expand
Consumption of high-fructose corn syrup in beverages may play a role in the epidemic of obesity.
The increase in consumption of HFCS has a temporal relation to the epidemic of obesity, and the overconsumption of H FCS in calorically sweetened beverages may play a role in the epidemic. Expand
Orlistat-Associated Adverse Effects and Drug Interactions
The use of orlistat has been associated with several mild-to-moderate gastrointestinal adverse effects, such as oily stools, diarrhoea, abdominal pain and faecal spotting, and the clinical relevance and pathogenesis of these effects is discussed. Expand
