DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082012000400004

Objective:To analyze quality of life and observe the prevalence of musculoskeletal pain in patients submitted to bariatric surgery.METHODS:A prospective, observational and comparative study with 26 individuals aged 18 to 60 years, 25 women, which included two evaluations, one preoperative and the other approximately 42 months after surgery. The Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) and the Human Body Diagram with Visual Analogue Scale were employed.RESULTS:The individual samples showed grade III obesity, with a predominance of postoperative overweight, […]

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082012000100010

Objective:To identify the nutritional status and food intake of individuals with systemic psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis associated.METHODS:This is an exploratory and cross-sectional study with 34 men aged between 19 and 60 years seen at a Psoriasis Center. Participants were divided into systemic psoriasis group and arthritic-systemic psoriasis associated group. For nutritional assessment we used anthropometry, bioelectrical impedance analysis and whole-body plethysmography. Clinical and nutritional information were assessed using the clinical and nutritional history-taking, and the 24-hour dietary recall. For statistics […]

Ary Serpa Neto, Felipe Martin Bianco Rossi, Rodrigo Dal Moro Amarante, Marçal Rossi

DOI: 10.1590/s1679-45082011ao2042

ABSTRACTObjectives:To evaluate the relations between liver markers (GGT, ALT and AST) and the metabolic syndrome (and its components) in morbidly obese subjects, and to determine the response of these metabolic factors and hepatic enzymes after weight loss induced by Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.Methods:This study was carried out at a university hospital, in Santo André (SP), Brazil. We evaluated 140 morbidly obese subjects aged from 18 to 60 years submitted to a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, who were followed for a mean period […]

Predictive performance of 12 equations for estimating glomerular filtration rate in severely obese patients

Ary Serpa Neto, Felipe Martin Bianco Rossi, Rodrigo Dal Moro Amarante, Marçal Rossi

DOI: 10.1590/s1679-45082011ao1922

ABSTRACTObjective:Considering that the Cockcroft-Gault formula and the equation of diet modification in renal disease are amply used in clinical practice to estimate the glomerular filtration rate, although they seem to have low accuracy in obese patients, the present study intends to evaluate the predictive performance of 12 equations used to estimate the glomerular filtration rate in obese patients.Methods:This is a cross-sectional retrospective study, conducted between 2007 and 2008 and carried out at a university, of 140 patients with severe obesity […]

Effects of dietary fiber intake on inflammation in chronic diseases

Ana Maria Pita Lottenberg, Patricia Luriko Tomita Fan, Vivian Buonacorso

DOI: 10.1590/s1679-45082010md1310

ABSTRACTChronic diseases such as obesity, type-2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular diseases are associated with inflammation due the increase of TNF-α, IL-6 and C-reactive protein concentrations. Occidental life style, specially related to the changes in food habits as observed in the past years, have an important role in the development of these diseases. Among the life style changes identified as having an impact in the development of diseases, is the decrease in dietary fiber consumption. Some studies have shown the […]
