Anti-inflammatory effect of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPAR-γ) on non-obese diabetic mice with Sjogren's syndrome.
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 07:50:05 +0100 | International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Pathology
CONCLUSION: PPAR-γ ameliorates Sjogren's syndrome on NOD mice effectively. The mechanism may be related to the reduction of Th1 cytokines and change of T helper cell balance from Th1 to Th2.

Pregnancy obesity is associated with increased rates of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular hospital admissions in adult offspring
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Evidence-Based Nursing
Commentary on: Reynolds RM, Allan KM, Raja EA, et al.. Maternal obesity during pregnancy and premature mortality from cardiovascular event in adult offspring: follow-up of 1 323 275 person years. BMJ 2013;347:f4539 Implications for practice and research Maternal obesity during pregnancy is associated with higher rates of all-cause mortality and hospital admissions for cardiovascular events among adult offspring. Women should be supported to maintain healthy weight before, during and after pregnancy. Comparisons of the associations of maternal and paternal obesity with offspring mortality and cardiovascular health is required to help elucidate explanations of these associations. Strategies to reduce overweight and obesity in family units earlier in life may have lifelong benefits....

Parental-adolescent conversations that focus on weight are more likely to be associated with unhealthy weight-control behaviours in adolescents than conversations that focus on healthy eating
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Evidence-Based Nursing
Commentary on: Berge JM, Maclehose R, Loth KA, et al.. Parent conversations about healthful eating and weight: associations with adolescent disordered eating behaviors. JAMA Pediatr 2013;167:746–53. Implications for practice and research Conversations between parents and adolescents about healthy eating are associated with a reduction in adolescent-reported unhealthy weight-control behaviour. In contrast, talking to adolescents directly about the need to diet or lose weight is associated with more adolescent-reported unhealthy weight-control behaviour. Practitioners should advise parents that discussions with adolescents that promote healthy eating are more useful in changing health behaviours than discussions focusing on dieting or losing weight. Context Although the obesity epidemi...

Overweight or obese young people are not at increased risk of depression, but young people with depression are at increased risk of obesity
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Evidence-Based Nursing
Commentary on: Roberts RE, Duong HT. Obese youths are not more likely to become depressed, but depressed youths are more likely to become obese. Psychol Med 2013;43:2143–51. Implications for practice and research Health professionals working with young people who have major depression should be aware that they may be at increased risk for developing obesity over time, particularly boys. Public health promotion or prevention efforts directed towards youths experiencing clinical depression may help to reduce future weight issues. Context Obesity and depression have both been associated with adverse health outcomes in young people.1 A growing body of evidence has investigated whether a link exists between these two conditions, suggesting that one may act as a risk factor for the other. ...
