Fall and Balance Outcomes After an Intervention to Promote Leg Strength, Balance, And Walking in People with Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy: “Feet First” Randomized Controlled Trial (Research Report) (Report)

In patients with diabetes, regular participation in physical activity can improve glycemic control and reduce cardiovascular mortality. (1,2) Exercise that improves lower-extremity balance and strength (force-generating capacity) has been shown to be effective in reducing falls in older adults. (3-7) However, people who are sedentary and people with insensate feet (8) have an increased risk […]

Association of Changes in Oxidative and Proinflammatory States with Changes in Vascular Function After a Lifestyle Modification Trial Among Obese Children (Lipids, Lipoproteins, And Cardiovascular Risk Factors)

Association of Changes in Oxidative and Proinflammatory States with Changes in Vascular Function After a Lifestyle Modification Trial Among Obese Children (Lipids, Lipoproteins, And Cardiovascular Risk Factors)

The prevalence of childhood obesity and its consequences are increasing rapidly in low- and middle-income countries (1). It is well documented that childhood obesity tracks into adulthood. Of special concern are the cardiometabolic consequences of obesity, especially hypertension, dyslipidemia, and impaired glucose metabolism, that are already present in young children of different ethnicities (2, 3).
