Dietary carbohydrate intake and high sensitivity C reactive protein in at-risk women and men 2011 75352 Background— The quality and quantity of dietary carbohydrate intake measured as dietary glycemic load (GL) is associated with a number of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and in healthy young women is related to increased high sensitivity ...
Exercise Training Amount and Intensity Effects on Metabolic Syndrome (From Studies of a Targeted Risk Reduction Intervention through Defined Exercise) 2011 75352 Although exercise improves individual risk factors of the metabolic syndrome (MS) there is little research on the effect of exercise on MS as a whole. The objective of this study was to determine how much exercise is recommended to reduce the prevale...
Increased Secretion and Expression of Myostatin in Skeletal Muscle From Extremely Obese Women 2011 75352 OBJECTIVE- Obesity is associated with endocrine abnormalities that predict the progression of insulin resistance to type 2 diabetes. Because skeletal muscle has been shown to secrete proteins that could be used as biomarkers we characterized the secr...
Intramuscular Lipid Metabolism Insulin Action and Obesity 2011 75352 With the increasing prevalence of obesity research has focused on the molecular mechanism(s) linking obesity and skeletal muscle insulin resistance. Metabolic alterations within muscle such as changes in the cellular location of fatty acid transporte...
Relationships between Adipose Tissue and Cytokine Responses to a Randomized Controlled Exercise Training Intervention 2011 75352 Adipose-derived cytokines play a prominent role in mediating the metabolic consequences of obesity and excess body fat. Given this we hypothesized that alterations in adipose tissue stores incurred with exercise training would be reflected in changes...
A sex-specific relationship between capillary density and anaerobic threshold 2011 75352 Although both capillary density and peak oxygen consumption (VO2) improve with exercise training it is difficult to find a relationship between these two measures. It has been suggested that peak VO2 may be more related to central hemodynamics than t...
