A prospective study on risk factors associated with the development of isthmocele after caesarean section
23-06-2024CONCLUSION: Our research has shown that women who have undergone multiple caesarean deliveries, have a higher maternal body mass index (BMI), and experienced longer surgery duration are at a significantly higher risk of developing isthmocele. To prevent its development, it is recommended to promote vaginal birth after caesarean delivery whenever feasible, manage maternal obesity early on, and provide adequate surgical training to medical professionals. Additionally, transvaginal ultrasound (TVS)...

Association of noise exposure with lipid metabolism among Chinese adults: mediation role of obesity indices
23-06-2024CONCLUSIONS: Our study demonstrates a positive association between occupational noise and abnormal lipid metabolism, and obesity may partly mediate the association. Our findings reinforce the need to take practical steps to reduce or even eliminate the health risks associated with occupational noise.

7-MEGA inhibits adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and suppresses obesity in high-fat-diet-induced obese C57BL/6 mice
22-06-2024CONCLUSION: In summary, this study uncovered that 7MEGA™ demonstrates anti-adipogenic and anti-obesity effects, suggesting its potential in combating obesity.

Feasibility of a laboratory-based protocol for measuring energy expenditure and accelerometer calibration in adults with intellectual disabilities
22-06-2024Adults with intellectual disabilities experience numerous health inequalities. Targeting unhealthy lifestyle behaviours, such as high levels of sedentary behaviour and overweight/obesity, is a priority area for improving the health and adults with intellectual disabilities and reducing inequalities. Energy expenditure is a fundamental component of numerous health behaviours and an essential component of various free-living behaviour measurements, e.g. accelerometry. However, little is known...

Relationship between body mass index and residential segregation in large cities of Latin America
22-06-2024CONCLUSIONS: While individual-level factors cannot fully explain differences among people in the same city, segregation indices may help. However, we found that in some cases, the relationship between BMI and segregation indices is opposite to what is expected based on prior literature. This should be considered in examining the phenomenon. Further research on obesogenic environments in segregated neighborhoods could provide valuable evidence.
