The article examines the response of circulating ghrelin and leptin to carbohydrate intake. Serum and saliva were obtained from the patients before they underwent oral fructose or lactose tolerance tests. The Wilcoxon signed rank test is used to calculate the differences between the collected samples. It was found that leptin was not affected by carbohydrate intake, while ghrelin was decreased after sugar load.

    Cigarette smoking is commonly associated with weight loss and mechanisms for these weight changes are still elusive. Ghrelin is a peptide hormone that works in a neuroendocrine fashion to stimulate hunger and the desire for food intake. Ghrelin is also secreted in saliva, probably to enhance...

    A method is described for the measurement of dietary fibre, including resistant starch (RS), non-digestible oligosaccharides (NDO) and available carbohydrates. Basically, the sample is incubated with pancreatic α-amylase and amyloglucosidase under conditions very similar to those described in...

    Background: The gut hormone, ghrelin, is involved in the neuroendocrine and metabolic responses to hunger. In monogastric species, circulating ghrelin levels show clear meal-related and body weight-related changes. The pattern of secretion and its role in ruminant species is less clear. Ghrelin...

    Background. Plasma ghrelin exerts widespread bioactivities. Although it is effectively removed from the blood by a single course of haemodialysis, peritoneal clearance of ghrelin is uncertain. Our study aimed to determine (i) whether there is a correlation between plasma ghrelin levels and...
