    The article reports on the link between the stress pathway of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to obesity-related chronic inflammation underlying insulin resistance. One of the characteristic feature of type 2 diabetes is the insulin resistance and the pathophysiological defect in the metabolic...

    Objective:Gut-derived hormone peptide YY (PYY) is low in subjects with obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, it is unknown whether this is a primary defect or a consequence of metabolic disturbances. In this study, we aimed to assess whether low fasting and postprandial PYY secretion is an...

    The article presents a discussion on metabolic disorders. The metabolic syndrome comprises of: diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance, abdominal obesity, dyslipidaemia and hypertension. Insulin resistance remains the core defect of type-2 diabetes. Although intense management to normoglycaemia...

    Increased visceral adiposity is a risk factor for metabolic disorders such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, whereas peripheral (subcutaneous) obesity is not. Though the specific mechanisms which contribute to these adipose depot differences are unknown,...

    In healthy subjects some tissues in the human body display metabolic flexibility, by this we mean the ability for the tissue to switch its fuel source between predominantly carbohydrates in the postprandial state and predominantly fats in the fasted state. Many of the pathways involved with...

    The article focuses on the link of obesity to inflammation. It states that inflammation has substantial role in the pathogenesis of disorders varying from insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes to fatty liver and cardiovascular disease. Overviews of various studies conducted that relates obesity...

    OBJECTIVE-Obesity, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes form a tightly correlated cluster of metabolic disorders in which adipose is one of the rst affected tissues. The role of hypoxia and hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF1) in the development of high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity and insulin...

    OBJECTIVE--Some obese youth with a clinical diagnosis of type 2 diabetes have evidence of islet cell autoimmunity with positive autoantibodies. In this study, we investigated the differences in insulin sensitivity and secretion between autoantibody-negative (Ab-) and -positive (Ab+) youth with...

    The combination of obesity and type 2 diabetes is a serious health problem, which is projected to afflict 300 million people worldwide by 2020. Both clinical and translational laboratory studies have demonstrated that chronic inflammation is associated with obesity and obesity-related conditions...
