BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES Although the benefits of bariatric surgery have been clearly established, it is not known whether they are as important in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Primary aim: to evaluate whether patients with moderate-to-severe OSA (apnoea-hypopnea index (AHI) ≥ 15 events/h) treated by continuous positive airway pressure/non-invasive ventilation (median [IQR] adherence 6.5 h/night [5; 7.9] at baseline) lose the same amount of body weight 1 year after bariatric surger...

BACKGROUND Observational and Mendelian randomization (MR) studies link obesity and cancer, but it remains unclear whether these depend upon related metabolic abnormalities. METHODS We used information from 321,472 participants in the UK biobank, including 30,561 cases of obesity-related cancer. We constructed three genetic instruments reflecting higher adiposity together with either "unfavourable" (82 SNPs), "favourable" (24 SNPs) or "neutral" metabolic profile (25 SNPs). We looked at associatio...

OBJECTIVE To explore the built environment (BE) and weight change relationship by age, sex, and racial/ethnic subgroups in adults. METHODS Weight trajectories were estimated using electronic health records for 115,260 insured Kaiser Permanente Washington members age 18-64 years. Member home addresses were geocoded using ArcGIS. Population, residential, and road intersection densities and counts of area supermarkets and fast food restaurants were measured with SmartMaps (800 and 5000-meter buffer...

BACKGROUND Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been implicated in various important biological processes, however, its role in energy balance and obesity remains largely unknown. METHODS Differentially expressed lncRNAs in the hypothalamus of diet-induced obesity (DIO) mice versus chow-fed mice were identified by RNA sequencing. Lentivirus-mediated overexpression and knockdown of a novel lncRNA, AK044061, were used to assess its role in energy balance and the development of DIO. RNA immunoprecipi...

BACKGROUND One major limitation of prior studies regarding the associations between built environment (BE) and obesity has been the use of anthropometric indices (e.g., body mass index [BMI]) for assessing obesity status, and there has been limited evidence of associations between BE and body fat. This study aimed to explore the longitudinal association between BE and body fat in a cohort of elderly Hong Kong Chinese and examine whether the BE-body fat associations differed by BMI categories. ME...

BACKGROUND The impact of obesity on outcomes in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is not well understood and remains controversial. Recent studies suggest that obesity might be associated with higher morbidity and mortality in respiratory disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 disease). Our objective was to evaluate the association between obesity and hospital mortality in critical COVID-19 patients. METHODS We conducted a retrospective cohort study in a tertiary academic center located...

BACKGROUND Obesity is associated with brain intrinsic functional reorganization. However, little is known about the BMI-related interhemispheric functional connectivity (IHFC) alterations, and their link with executive function in young healthy adults. METHODS We examined voxel-mirrored homotopic connectivity (VMHC) patterns in 417 young adults from the Human Connectome Project. Brain regions with significant association between BMI and VMHC were identified using multiple linear regression. Resu...

BACKGROUND International guidelines recommend children aged 9 months to 2 years consume whole (3.25%) fat cow's milk, and children older than age 2 years consume reduced (0.1-2%) fat cow's milk to prevent obesity. The objective of this study was to evaluate the longitudinal relationship between cow's milk fat (0.1-3.25%) intake and body mass index z-score (zBMI) in childhood. We hypothesized that higher cow's milk fat intake was associated with lower zBMI. METHODS A prospective cohort study of c...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES Alterations in gut microbiota have been linked to obesity and impaired lipid metabolism. Lipoproteins are heterogeneous, and lipoprotein subspecies containing apolipoprotein C-III (apoCIII) have adverse associations with obesity and related cardiometabolic abnormalities. We investigated associations of weight-loss diet-induced decreases in atherogenic gut-microbial metabolites, trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) and L-carnitine, with improvements in atherogenic lipoproteins cont...
