Abstract null null Objective: Oxidative stress is considered to be one of the etiologic factors involved in ulcerative colitis (UC), yet there is limited epidemiological information regarding the relationship between antioxidant intake and the risk of UC. The aim of the present case–control study in Japan was to examine the association between intake of green and yellow vegetables, other vegetables, fruit, vitamin C, vitamin E, retinol, α-carotene, β-carotene, and cryptoxanthin and UC risk. null...

OBJECTIVE Serum albumin is used as a marker of acute inflammation. Several studies have addressed the association between serum albumin and clinical outcome in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). While mucosal healing (MH) has been indicated as the therapeutic goal for UC, the association between serum albumin and MH remains unclear. We evaluated this issue in patients with UC overall and explored whether duration of UC affected this association. DESIGN This cross-sectional study recruited co...

BACKGROUND Functional dyspepsia (FD) has a high prevalence worldwide and reduces patients' quality of life. The etiology of FD is likely multifactorial. Although two studies showed an inverse association between exercise habits and FD, evidence regarding the association between exercise habits and FD remains scarce. AIMS This study aimed to investigate the association between exercise habits and FD among the young Japanese population, taking the presence or absence of an exercise partner as an a...

BACKGROUND Causes of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and its progression include visceral fat accumulation and loss of muscle mass; however, which of the two phenomena is more critical is unclear. Therefore, we intended to examine the relationship between body composition and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease progression as indicated by fibrosis and the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease activity score. METHODS This cross-sectional study comprised 149 patients (55 men; age, 20-76 years) treated...

BACKGROUND Although the association between eating habits which can be modified and digestive diseases has been reported, to date, no research has evaluated the association between eating habits and ulcerative colitis (UC). Thus, we investigate the association between eating behavior and clinical outcome in Japanese patients with UC. METHODS Eating quickly, eating until full, and skipping breakfast data was obtained from a self-administered questionnaire. Information on clinical outcome was coll...

INTRODUCTION Fatty liver disease (FLD) is a surrogate condition for glucose intolerance development. FLD may involve normal or abnormal liver enzyme levels. Whether FLD is a risk factor for glucose intolerance, regardless of liver enzyme levels, remains unknown. We assessed relationships between the development of impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and FLD, liver enzyme abnormalities, and alcohol consumption. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated 8,664 participants with more than two an...

Background Serum globulin is an inflammation marker. To date, no evidence regarding the association between serum globulin and disease activity in patients with ulcerative colitis has been reported. Aims We evaluated the association between serum globulin and endoscopic activity in patients with ulcerative colitis. Methods Serum globulin was divided into tertiles based on the distribution of study subjects (low globulin, ≤ 2.7 g/dl (reference); moderate globulin, 2.7-3.1 g/dl; and high globulin,...

PURPOSE Bilirubin is known to have antioxidant effects. Several pieces of evidence regarding association between serum bilirubin and UC exist. Three studies found that serum bilirubin was inversely associated with severity of ulcerative colitis (UC), but no evidence regarding an association between serum bilirubin and mucosal healing (MH) has yet been shown. Thus, we evaluated this issue among Japanese patients with UC. METHODS The study subjects consisted of 304 Japanese patients with UC. Serum...
