Abdominal Fat Linked To Heart Disease – Liposuction Does Not Improve Metabolic Condition – Inflammation Molecule Released By Inner Fat

(Best Syndication) Belly fat may be a promoter of inflammation that can lead to heart disease and other disorders, according to researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. They found that the “fat cells” inside the abdomen secret molecules that increase inflammation.

The researchers say that the apple shaped body, where too much fat surrounds the abdomen, is a defect in the body's response to insulin. In fact, during medical exams some physicians measure waist circumference to identify patients at increased risk for these problems. But it is not the body fat that is the problem per se. Back in 2004 they discovered that removing the body fat with liposuction did not provide the metabolic benefits normally associated with similar amounts of fat loss induced by dieting or exercising.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) affects as many as 10 – 15% of the adult U.S. population. IBS symptoms are disruptions in the digestion tract. Often a person will have bouts of diarrhea followed by constipation. The person can also suffer from abdominal pain and bloating. There is not a clear understand as to the cause of IBS, but researchers found that personality traits might lead a person to have problems more than others. The study will be published in the upcoming issue of journal Gut.

A study of 620 participants that were diagnosed with gastroenteritis caused by a bacterial infection was surveyed about their beliefs and behaviors. The researchers measured the person’s mood, perceived stress levels, perfectionism and illness beliefs. None of the participants were diagnosed with IBS at the start of the study.

British researchers say that people over the age of 50 who take popular heartburn drugs such as Nexium, Prevacid or Prilosec are more prone to broken hips. The exact cause is not known, but it is speculated that these drugs reduce the acid in the stomach and make it more difficult for the body to absorb calcium.

Since hip fractures can lead to life threatening complications, the new findings may prompt doctors to consider other alternatives. These drugs are usually prescribed to people who do not respond sufficiently to common over the counter (OTC) antacids such as Tums, Rolaids and Maalox.

Gut Microbe and Obesity Link - Calorie Absorption Rate Different For People – Friendly Bacteria Help Body Extract Nutrients

Ruth Ley Ph.D

Researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis say that there is a link between microbes living in our guts and obesity. The research suggests that different people will absorb slightly less or more energy from the same food depending on the “collection of gut microbes”.

This means that a bowl of cereal may not yield the same number of calories in different people. But diet is still the biggest factor for obesity. Doctor Jeffrey Gordon says “The amount of calories you consume by eating, and the amount of calories you expend by exercising are key determinants of your tendency to be obese or lean.” Gordon is a medical doctor (MD), lead investigator and director of the Center for Genome Sciences and the Dr. Robert J. Glaser Distinguished University Professor.
