Triglycerides cross the blood–brain barrier and induce central leptin and insulin receptor resistance

Resistance at the brain receptors for leptin and insulin has been associated with increased feeding, obesity and cognitive impairments. The causal agent for central resistance is unknown but could be derived from the blood. Here we postulate whether hypertriglyceridemia, the major dyslipidemia of the metabolic syndrome, could underlie central leptin and insulin resistance. We used […]

Oxidative Stress Inhibits Healthy Adipose Expansion

Recent studies have emphasized the association of adipose oxidative stress (Fat ROS) with the pathogenesis of metabolic disorders in obesity. However, the causal roles of Fat ROS in metabolic disturbances in vivoremain unclear because no mouse model has been available in which oxidative stress is manipulated targeting adipocytes. In this research, we generated two models of […]

Trends in Obesity and Severe Obesity Prevalence in US Youth and Adults by Sex and Age, 2007-2008 to 2015-2016

Obesity prevalence has been increasing since the 1980s among adults, but among youth, prevalence plateaued between 2005-2006 and 2013-2014.1,2 We analyzed trends in obesity prevalence among US youth and adults between 2007-2008 and 2015-2016 in order to determine recent changes.
