    Running head: METABOLIC SYNDROME Metabolic Syndrome James Doucette College of Western Idaho Abstract Metabolic syndrome is an emerging diagnosis in the medical field that has effects on patient care. Becoming familiar with it and having it become a common part of patient care will, if used appropriately will increase the lives of those who have become affected with or are at risk of becoming diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a constellation of risks

  • Is Withaferin A, A Magic Bullet For Metabolic Syndrome?

    1435 Words  | 6 Pages

    Is Withaferin A, a magic bullet for metabolic syndrome? A recent and exciting new study shows that withaferin A, a steroidal lactone isolated from Withania somnifera plant, which is very commonly known as Ashwagandha or Indian ginseng or Indian winter cherry, can exert profound therapeutic beneficial effect on metabolic syndrome (increased body weight, hepatic steatosis, insulin resistance and hypertension) in mice. A recent article which was published in nature medicine by Lee and colleagues1 on

  • Health Implications Of An Individual Under Metabolic Stress

    implications present for an individual under metabolic stress. The type of metabolic stress that will be the focus of this report is the metabolic disease of hypertension and cardio-vascular disease. Key areas that will be focused on throughout this report include, the study of an individual’s dietary intake and the body’s reserves of macro and micro nutrients, which will be related to possible health implications for this individual due to metabolic stress. Furthermore this study will then go on

  • Resistance Training And Its Effect On Resting Metabolic Rate

    comorbidities can be prevented and modified with the identification of certain risk factors such as low levels of physical activity and decreased energy expenditure that predispose an individual to obesity. The following research addresses resting metabolic rate (RMR), its effects on caloric balance, and the effects of physical activity. This review of

  • Resting Metabolic Rate And Progressive Submaximal Exercise Test

    1862 Words  | 8 Pages

    EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY LAB APK4110L - Section # 008 Carissa Insinga 9/22/16 LAB REPORT #2 Resting Metabolic Rate & Progressive Submaximal Exercise Test Mike Haischer Introduction In these experiments we talked about the Resting Metabolic Rate and Progressive Submaximal Exercise Testing to determine a subjects’ carbon dioxide production to oxygen consumption. This was done by having examples provided for us to calculate the RMR by using a formula, (X ml/kg/min x weight in kg) / 1000 mL= # L/min, to

  • Does Body Size Affect Endotherms Metabolic Rates?

    1402 Words  | 6 Pages

    higher metabolic rate than endotherms with large bodies. We tested this by making 6 clay cubes (different sizes) and placed them in ice for 10 minutes and measured them in 2-minute intervals. Our results supported our hypothesis because the larger clay with the smallest SA/V had the slowest cooling rate while the smallest cube with the higher SA/V had the fastest cooling rate. Introduction In this lab, we are going to try to answer the question, Does body size affect endotherms metabolic rates

  • How Sleep Plays a Role in Regulating Body Temperature and Metabolic Rates in Primates

    850 Words  | 3 Pages

    This study aims at identifying if and how sleep plays a role in regulating body temperature and metabolic-rate in primates. Further, a hibernating primate, the lemuriform Cheirogaleus medius(Fat-tailed dwarf lemur) in specific, will be examined because hibernation has a direct correlation with hypothermia and reduced metabolic-rate. This primate was used because it is known to experience lengthy periods of hibernation and lives in a temperate climate of Madagascar. It is hypothesized that hibernation

  • Metabolic Oppression

    Neuroscience is the real problem. “Metabolic suppression...that the brain uses to keep the body within a certain weight range, called the set point...When dieters’ weight drops below it, they not only burn fewer calories but also produce more hunger-inducing hormones and find eating more rewarding. (Sandra Aamodt)” After dieters gain the hormones and end in starvation,

    expenditure that affect health. Obesity and its comorbidities is an emerging health risk with only a handful of successful treatment procedures that have been developed by surgeons observing several outcomes within the clinic (Arble et al, 2015). Metabolic surgery also termed as bariatric surgery is the most commonly used and successful treatment for weight loss and type-2 diabetes till date. Bariatric surgery basically includes manipulations of the hindgut and foregut. Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is a
