High Calorie Diet and the Human Brain Book Review:

The purpose of this monograph is to present readers with a comprehensive and cutting edge description of neurochemical effects of diet (beneficial and harmful effects) in normal human brain and to discuss how present day diet promotes pathogenesis of stroke, AD, PD, and depression in a manner that is useful not only to students and teachers but also to researchers, dietitians, nutritionists and physicians. A diet in sufficient amount and appropriate macronutrients is essential for optimal health of human body tissues. In brain, over-nutrition, particularly with high-calorie diet, not only alters cellular homeostasis, but also results in changes in the intensity of signal transduction processes in reward centers of the brain resulting in food addiction. Over-nutrition produces detrimental effects on human health in general and brain health in particular because it chronically increases the systemic and brain inflammation and oxidative stress along with induction of insulin resistance and leptin resistance in the brain as well as visceral organs. Onset of chronic inflammation and oxidative stress not only leads to obesity and heart disease, but also promotes type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which are risk factors for both acute neural trauma (stroke) and chronic age-related neurodegenerative and neuropsychological disorders, such as Alzheimer disease (AD), Parkinson disease (PD) and depression.

Effect of 12 Weeks Structured Exercise Training on Insulin Resistance in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus a Pre post Study Book Review:

Title: Effect of 12 weeks structured exercise training on Insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes mellitus: A Pre-Post studyAbstract:Background: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is one of fastest growing noncommunicable diseases worldwide, and its prevalence is increasing rapidly around the world parallel to increase in the obesity. According to International Diabetes Federation atlas (7th edition), 415 million adults worldwide have diabetes mellitus, and it is projected to increase to 642 million by the year 2040. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is characterized by elevated glucose levels in circulating blood, caused by impairment in glucose tolerance development of insulin resistance & relative insulin deficiency. Impaired glucose control & Insulin resistance are reported to be a risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases. Insulin resistance is commonly associated with visceral adiposity, glucose intolerance, hypertension, dyslipidemia, endothelial dysfunction and elevated markers of inflammation. In Indian population, Insulin resistance is one of the strong reason for altered glycemic control, even though exercise training is found to be effective in glycemic control along with the standard medical care. There is a dearth of literature in the effectiveness of exercise training on insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes mellitus.Aim: u2022tTo find out the effectiveness of structured exercise program on insulin resistance by using Fasting insulin level and Homa-IR in Type 2 diabetes mellitus.u2022tTo find out the effectiveness of structured exercise program on Glycaemic control by a HbA1c method in Type 2 diabetes mellitus.Method: We conducted a pre-and- post study with no control group. A total of 17 participants were included aged 30-75 years who are with Type 2 diabetes mellitus on oral hypoglycemic agent with or without Insulin therapy and Exclusion criteria was participants with type 1 diabetes mellitus, known case of Respiratory disease, Coronary artery disease, Neurological disorders, Musculoskeletal problems that would interfere with the exercise training . All participants were screened at Diabetic Foot clinic, Department of Physiotherapy, Manipal University, Karnataka, India. All participants were screened clinically & biochemically and given a set of structured exercise program 3 times a week for 12 weeks along with standard medical care. The exercise protocol included warm-up by stretching and flexibility exercises for 10 min. It mainly consisted of aerobic and resistance exercise like-brisk walking for 45 mins, jogging, weights for upper and lower body major muscle groups with maximum intensity 60% increase in heart rate and then stretching in the seated position for 10 min.The baseline data was collected before the intervention and progression of exercise program done after 6 weeks. At 3rd month all the participants were reassessed for fasting insulin level and fasting blood sugar. Resistance to insulin was assessed using Homeostasis Model Assessment of Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR), Fasting insulin level and Fasting blood sugar.Results: The mean age of the participants was 59.23 u00b1 8.38 years, mean duration of diabetes was 10.82 u00b1 7.82 years, mean Body mass index was 26.64 u00b1 4.09. Significant differences have been observed in Insulin resistance, Fasting blood sugar. The current exercise protocol has been effective in lowering fasting glucose (p =0.005), Fasting insulin (p = 0.000) and insulin resistance (p = 0.005). Discussion: There is now suggestive evidence supporting the use of 12 weeks of structured exercise program training three times a week was effective on insulin resistance and glycemic control in T2DM patients. Several factors could affect the exercise outcome on glucose and insulin plasma levels and insulin resistance in T2DM.

Metabolic Syndrome and Psychiatric Illness Interactions Pathophysiology Assessment and Treatment Book Review:

Metabolic syndrome is a set of risk factors that includes: abdominal obesity, a decreased ability to process glucose (insulin resistance), dyslipidemia (unhealthy lipid levels), and hypertension. Patients who have this syndrome have been shown to be at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease and/or type 2 diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is a common condition that goes by many names (dysmetabolic syndrome, syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, obesity syndrome, and Reaven's syndrome). This is the first book to fully explain the relationships between psychiatric illness, Metabolic Syndrome, diet, sleep, exercise, medications, and lifestyle choices. Metabolic Syndrome is a major risk factor in Major Depression, Alzheimer's Disease, Sleep Disorders, Sexual Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia, and several other illnesses of psychiatric significance. Conversely, some psychiatric illnesses tend to predispose patients to Metabolic Syndrome. Of further interest is the fact that some of the medications used in the treatment of psychiatric illnesses have been found to cause or exacerbate Metabolic Syndrome. The author here provides basic information about what genetic predispositions, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices make Metabolic Syndrome more likely to occur. Among the contributing factors that are discussed are genetics, habitual intake of high glycemic index carbohydrates, fructose, saturated fats, trans fatty acids, vitamins, micronutrients, obesity, smoking, and lack of exercise. The author describes the actual mechanisms by which Metabolic Syndrome progresses and causes damage in the body, including the action of insulin and the pathophysiology of insulin resistance. Details are provided on what occurs in the liver, pancreas, muscle, fat cells, and immune system as Metabolic Syndrome progresses. New findings are presented on fat cells, including the fact that they are beginning to be considered as endocrine cells. There is a substantive discussion of leptin, which is one of the important adipocytokines. Also carbohydrate, 'bad fats', inflammation, oxidative damage, over-stimulation of the 'fight or flight' system, and high levels of the stress hormone cortisol can actually cause the manifestations of Metabolic Syndrome. These explanations set the stage for an explanation of the inter-relationships between Metabolic Syndrome, psychiatric illness, dementia and effects of not only diet and life choices, but also the effects of psychiatric medications. Finally, there is an important and unique section on the relationship between Metabolic Syndrome and various psychiatric illnesses, and how they exacerbate each other. The significance of Metabolic Syndrome in Major Depression, Bipolar Affective Disorder, Schizophrenia, fibromyalgia and Polycystic Ovary Disease is vast and it is important to realise the effects of psychiatric medications on Metabolic Syndrome. The author discusses antidepressants, mood stabilizers and the new atypical antipsychotics. There are dramatic differences among medications in the way they affect Metabolic Syndrome and pharmaceutical companies will want to promote patient awareness with this book.

Role of the Mediterranean Diet in the Brain and Neurodegenerative Diseases Book Review:

Role of the Mediterranean Diet in the Brain and Neurodegenerative Disease provides a comprehensive overview of the effects of all components of the Mediterranean diet on the brain, along with its beneficial effects in neurodegenerative diseases. It covers topics on neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer disease (AD), Parkinson disease, (PD) Huntington disease (HD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also providing information on how cardiovascular disease, Type 2 Diabetes, and Metabolic Syndrome become risk factors for neurodegenerative diseases. This book focuses on how the Mediterranean diet suppresses oxidative stress and neuroinflammation in neurodegenerative diseases as well as signal transduction. The Mediterranean diet is characterized by the abundant consumption of olive oil, high consumption of plant foods (fruits, vegetables, pulses, cereals, nuts and seeds); frequent and moderate intake of wine (mainly with meals); moderate consumption of fish, seafood, yogurt, cheese, poultry and eggs; and low consumption of red meat and processed meat products. High consumption of dietary fiber, low glycemic index and glycemic load, anti-inflammatory effects, and antioxidant compounds may act together to produce favorable effects on health status. Collective evidence suggests that Mediterranean diet not only increases longevity by lowering cardiovascular disease, inhibiting cancer growth, but also by protecting the body from age-dependent cognitive decline. Comprehensively provides an overview of the effects of the Mediterranean diet on the brain and its beneficial effects in neurodegenerative diseases Discusses the relationship among Type 2 Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Alzheimer's Disease, and the effect of the Mediterranean diet on normal aging, longevity, and other neurodegenerative diseases Focuses on how the Mediterranean diet suppresses oxidative stress and neuroinflammation in neurodegenerative disease

Evolution of Cardio Metabolic Risk from Birth to Middle Age Book Review:

That precursors of adult coronary artery disease, hypertension, and type II diabetes begin in childhood have been clearly established by the Bogalusa Heart Study. This unique research program has been able to follow a biracial (black/white) population over 35 years from childhood through mid-adulthood to provide perspectives on the natural history of adult heart diseases. Not only do these observations describe trajectories of cardio-metabolic risk variables leading to these diseases but provide a rationale for the need to begin prevention beginning in childhood. The trajectories of the burden of cardio-metabolic risk variables in the context of their fetal origin and chromosome telomere dynamics provide some insight into the metabolic imprinting in utero and aging process. The observed racial contrasts on cardio-metabolic risk variables implicate various biologic pathways interacting with environment contributing to the high morbidity and mortality from related diseases in our population. To address the seriousness of the onset of cardiovascular disease in youth, approaches to primordial prevention are described focussing on childhood health education as an important aspect of Preventive Cardiology.

Obesity and Diabetes Book Review:

Obesity has become the most common chronic disease of the present day, with significant increases in prevalence in populations across the world and all age groups. This has resulted in a dramatic increase in obesity-related metabolic and cardiovascular complications, making it an important public health issue. Type 2 diabetes associated with obesity or 'diabesity' is today the most common form of type 2 diabetes. It is also associated with a number of other cardiovascular risk factors, which constitute the metabolic syndrome. Effective management of 'diabesity' is crucial to the reduction of morbidity and premature mortality due to cardiovascular disease. This book comprises chapters written by leading international experts on various aspects of obesity-related diabetes. As a practical reference guide, it is suitable for all professionals with an interest in this field. Emerging problems such as childhood 'diabesity' and the impact of obesity on polycystic ovary syndrome will be of interest not only to paediatricians and endocrinologists, but also to general practitioners and other healthcare professionals. The contemporary approach to the clinical assessment of obesity and its management in both primary and secondary care settings is also described.
