  • Serum levels of WISP1/CCN4 in subjects with type 2 diabetes: the relationships with body fat distribution and adipose tissue dysfunction

    The aim: to assess the relationships between the circulating Wnt1-inducible signaling pathway protein 1 (WISP1) and the levels of other adipokines, inflammatory markers, fat mass and fat distribution, and parameters of glycemic control in type 2 diabetic subjects. Materials and Methods: We observed 156 patients, 45 M/111 F, including 102 subjects with obesity. The levels of WISP1, hsCRP, alpha1-acid glycoprotein (AGP), and macrophage inflammatory protein 1alpha (MIP-1alpha) were measured in the fasting serum by ELISA. Serum concentrations of leptin, resistin, visfatin, adipsin, adiponectin, IL-6, IL-8, IL-18 and TNF-alpha were determined by Multiplex analysis. Twenty four non-obese non-diabetic subjects, matched by age and sex, were acted as control. The fat mass and distribution was assessed by DEXA. The mean diameter of adipocytes was estimated in the samples of subcutaneous AT in 25 patients. Glucose variability (GV) parameters were derived from continuous glucose monitoring. Results: Patients with diabetes, as compared to control, had significantly higher levels of WISP1 (p=0.02), leptin (p=0.005), resistin (p<;0.0001), adipsin (p<;0.0001), visfatin (p=0.0003), hsCRP (p<;0.0001), AGP (p<;0.0001), MIP-1alpha (p=0.006) and IL-6 (p=0.01). Serum WISP1 levels demonstrated positive correlations with percentage of android fat mass (r=0.46, p<;0.001), resistin, visfatin and MIP-1alpha levels (r=0.36, r=0.28 and r=0.47 respectively, all p<;0.01), but it did not correlated with HbA1c and GV parameters. In a multiple regression analysis android fat mass was the only reliable predictor of serum WISP1 levels. Conclusions: In subjects with type 2 diabetes serum levels of circulating WISP1 are associated with adiposity and adipose tissue dysfunction.

  • Health management based on history of personalized physiological data using linear regression analysis

    Personalized healthcare methods are attracting attention due to the extended life expectancy. A general definition of health is explained by the opposite concept of disease. To maintain a healthy state of the individual, a health management protocol based on user's own physiological data is required for individual. In this paper, we propose a protocol for predicting and managing health information of users based on personal physiological history data using linear regression analysis. Subjects were selected for obesity based on BMI, and linear regression analysis was performed between exercise parameters and obesity index according to personal training exercise. Exercise parameters are cumulative exercise distance and exercise days, and obesity parameters are BMI, body fat rate, and body muscle rate. The user can receive feedback on the predicted date that can reach the health information result and actively participate through the gamification function that visually feedbacks the changing health information through the avatar function of the smart device respectively. These protocols will be applied to a personalized health management platform that will prevent disease and maintain a healthy state in the future.

  • County-level geographic distributions of diabetes in relation to multiple factors in the united states

    The increasing prevalence of diagnosed diabetes has drawn attention of researchers in recent years. In this study, a feature selection method based on linear regression has been used to identify the most relevant factors that are associated with diabetes prevalence from the national county health ranking data sets. Then, Expectation-Maximization clustering algorithm has been used to identify the geo-clusters of counties based on the factors and their relations to the diabetes prevalence for years from 2014 to 2017. The results have identified the unique county-level geographic disparities and trends in diabetes and the related factors over the past four years.

  • Mini-review: Human Microbiome project — Recent trends and future challenges

    Each human body hosts, on the surface and inside its body, trillions of microorganisms, which are essential in the functioning of the human organisms. The importance of these communities of microorganisms in our lives is major since researchers all over the world consider them a "second human genome". Understanding how these organisms interact with their human hosts could explain different aspects of many complex diseases, from obesity and metabolic diseases to infections susceptibility or the occurrence of several chronic diseases (neurological, cardiovascular), immunological and autoimmune diseases, or even behavioral changes (depression, anxiety), autism and the ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders) in children. In this short review are presented the main challenges and recent discoveries in biotechnological approaches worldwide applied, especially within Human Microbiome Project.

  • Assessment of the ventricular-arterial coupling in obese patients with normal ejection fraction

    Obesity is a major health problem worldwide, with important economic and social effects. Obesity affects cardiovascular and respiratory systems directly. In this paper, after presenting a noninvasive indicator of contractility, based on the clinical echocardiografic measurements, a computer model (implemented in Simulink) based on the simplified circuit of the cardiovascular model is used, taking into account the ventriculo-arterial coupling. The simulation results, and clinical tests expresses of a good correlation of the chosen noninvasive indicator of contractility with body mass index and the single-beat elastance in obese patients.

  • The Future of Fat: As Obesity Grows to Epidemic Proportions, Researchers Are Trying to Halt the Trend

    At first, Ahmed El-Sohemy was puzzled by his data-they were the complete opposite of what they should have been. It was supposed to be a straightforward study of cholesterol metabolism in rats and merely replicate the protocol from another, previously published study. El-Sohemy initially assumed the discrepancy had something to do with the rat chow; but, no, he had fed the rats the very same high-cholesterol feed as in the previous study, and the blood levels of cholesterol reflected that. Had he skipped a step? Taken the wrong measurement? He leafed through his lab notes, but, again, no, he had followed the previous study precisely.

  • SDSS: Proposal on feeding support application software which enables the user to create a state of “mental alertness”

    This paper focuses on the relationship between diet and mental alertness, and proposes the feeding support smartphone application software which enables the user to control a state of mental alertness. This system enables the user to enter an alert state intentionally by maintaining a fasting a little state. Therefore, this system can have an effect on both the diet; dietary control, and work efficiency by purposely creating an alert state. Based on our hypothesis, which states that by managing meal intake size and meal time, we can control state of being alert intentionally, we have devised SDSS (Smart Diet Support System). We have also conducted a study to check the validity of our hypothesis and the proposed system.

  • Comparison of CNN Tolerances to Intra Class Variety in Food Recognition

    Intra-class variation defines image variations occur between different images of one class. The similarity between samples within the same class is typically measured by the Intra-class Correlation coefficient. A high Intra- class Correlation Coefficient close to 1 indicates high similarity between samples from the same class where a low ICC close to zero means opposite. This paper deals with intra-class variety problem of Kegels Foodl0l dataset. 21 classes that have high ICC values were chosen. We have applied well known convolutional neural networks including ResNet, GoogleNet, MobileNet and VGG- Net with different train and test percentages in order to compare the recognition rates for the classes. Although the samples in Food101 dataset vary widely, GoogleNet (Inception V3) has the highest validation accuracy value with the lowest number of epochs.
