- Eating disorders among bariatric surgery patients: The chicken or the egg?by Marissa A Parsons on October 26, 2023
Postoperative eating behaviors and unhealthy weight control measures are leading causes of bariatric surgery complications. Candidates for bariatric surgery and individuals with eating disorders may share common risk factors, such as a history of dieting, and/or being bullied or teased for their weight. Binge-eating disorder, night eating syndrome, and bulimia nervosa are the most common eating disorders among candidates for bariatric surgery before the operation. Malnutrition, stress, and...
- Chronotype preference, sleep quality, and night-eating behaviors in patients with metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease: Assessing the relationship with disease severity and fibrosisby Ayse Sakalli Kani on October 12, 2023
CONCLUSION: Despite the non-morningness chronotype demonstrating poorer sleep quality and a higher prevalence of night-eating behavior, our findings revealed no statistically significant differences in terms of sleep quality, nocturnal eating habits, or chronotype preferences among patients with varying degrees of MASLD severity. On the other hand, advanced fibrosis was significantly impacted by poor sleep quality.
- Slc12a2 loss in insulin-secreting β-cells links development of overweight and metabolic dysregulation to impaired satiation control of feedingby Yakshkumar Dilipbhai Rathod on October 11, 2023
Male mice lacking the Na^(+)-K^(+)-2Cl^(-) cotransporter Slc12a2 (Nkcc1) specifically in insulin-secreting β-cells (Slc12a2^(βKO)) have reduced β-cell mass and mild β-cell secretory dysfunction associated with overweight, glucose intolerance, insulin resistance, and metabolic abnormalities. Here, we confirmed and extended previous results to female Slc12a2^(βKO) mice, which developed a similar metabolic syndrome-like phenotype as males, albeit milder. Notably, male and female Slc12a2^(βKO) mice...
- Association of participants who screened positive for night eating syndrome with physical health, sleep problems, and weight status in an Australian adult populationby Sai Janani Sakthivel on September 20, 2023
CONCLUSIONS: Several physical health problems were found to be significantly associated with the spNES group including sleep problems, increased BMI, increased levels of pain and lower self-reported physical health-related quality of life. Consequently, future research exploring the complex interaction between NES and these medical conditions may provide further insight into the diagnosis, screening tools and management of NES. Additionally, this study highlights the need for future studies...
