  • Predicted fat mass, lean body mass, and risk of hypertension: results from
           a Chinese male cohort study

    • Abstract: Introduction: Few studies have deciphered whether lean body mass (LBM) or fat mass (FM) is predominantly responsible for the body mass index (BMI)–hypertension association. This study aimed to assess the associations of predicted LBM and FM with hypertension risk among Chinese male adults.Methods: A prospective cohort study was conducted among 2,812 male participants free of hypertension in the Fangchenggang Area Males Health and Examination Survey in 2009. We performed multivariable Cox models and restricted cubic spline (RCS) to examine the associations of predicted LBM and FM, and BMI with hypertension, and to further explore the mediating roles of lipid and glycemic traits in the relationship between predicted FM and blood pressure.Results: Of 1,238 participants included in the cohort study, 306 (24.8%) hypertension cases were identified during a median follow-up of 3.8 years, with an incidence rate of 7.0 per 100 person-years. A positive linear-shaped association was consistently observed between BMI and hypertension (P for trend < 0.001). Multivariable adjusted Cox models including predicted LBM and FM observed a positive association between predicted FM and hypertension. Compared with those in the lowest quartile of predicted FM, men in the highest quartile had a hazard ratio (HR) of 1.83 (95% confidence interval (CI): 1.13 to 2.97) for hypertension. The HR per standard deviation (SD) increase of BMI and predicted FM was 1.11 (95% CI: 1.04 to 1.19) above 23.1 kg/m2 and 1.05 (95% CI: 1.02 to 1.15) above 14.6 kg, respectively. However, predicted LBM was not associated with hypertension. In addition, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c) and fasting blood glucose (FBG) mediated the relationship of predicted FM with systolic blood pressure, with a mediation ratio of 37.1% and 8.2%, respectively. Furthermore, total cholesterol (TC) and triglyceride (TG) positively mediated the association of predicted FM with diastolic blood pressure, with a mediation ratio of 9.5% and 9.9%, respectively. Conclusion: Higher predicted FM might play a central role in the positive linear relationship of the BMI–hypertension association in Chinese male adults, and the link from predicted FM to blood pressure was partially mediated by TC, TG, HDL-c, and FBG.

  • STATUS OF WEIGHT CHANGE, LIFESTYLE BEHAVIORS, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND
           DIABETES MELLITUS IN A COHORT WITH OBESITY DURING THE COVID 19
           LOCKDOWN.TURK-COM STUDY GROUP

    • Abstract: Introduction: The COVID-19 pandemic led to a lockdown period. Confinement periods have been related to unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. Our study aimed to determine weight change, changes in eating and exercise habits, the presence of depression and anxiety, and diabetes mellitus (DM) status in a cohort of patients with obesity.Methods: The study was undertaken in nine centers of Collaborative Obesity Management (COM) of the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) in Turkey. An e-survey about weight change, eating habits, physical activity status, DM status, depression, and anxiety was completed by patients. The International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) score was used to determine physical activity in terms of metabolic equivalents (METs). A healthy nutrition coefficient was calculated from the different categories of food consumption. The Patient Health Questionaire (PHQ-9) and General Anxiety Disorder (GAD-7) were used for determining depression and anxiety, respectively.Results: Four hundred twenty-two patients (age 45±12.7 years, W/M=350/72) were included. The healthy nutrition coefficient before the pandemic was 38.9±6.2 and decreased to 38.1±6.4 during the pandemic (p

  • The Influence of Green Space on Obesity in China: A Systematic Review

    • Abstract: Introduction: This study systematically reviewed scientific evidence concerning the influence of green space on obesity in China.Methods: Keyword and reference search was conducted in PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, EBSCO, and CNKI. Predetermined selection criteria included—study designs: experimental and observational studies; subjects: people of all ages; exposures: green space (i.e., any open land partly or entirely covered with grass, trees, shrubs, or other vegetation); outcomes: body weight status (e.g., body mass index [BMI], overweight, or obesity); and country: China.Results: Ten studies met the selection criteria and were included in the review. All studies adopted a cross-sectional design. Overall greenness measures were found to be inversely associated with BMI, overweight, and obesity in most included studies. Street greenness, which measures the perceived greenness at the eye level on streets, was found to be inversely associated with BMI and obesity. By contrast, mixed results were observed for the relationship between green space accessibility and weight outcomes. Air quality was found to mediate the relationship between greenness and obesity. The influence of green space on obesity tended to vary by residents’ gender, age, and socioeconomic status. Boys, women, older residents, and those with lower education or household income were more likely to benefit from greenness exposure.Conclusion: The literature on green space exposure in relation to obesity in China remains limited. Longitudinal and quasi-experimental studies are warranted to assess the causal link between green space and obesity. Future measures should better capture the self-perception, quality, and attractiveness of green space. The underlying pathways through which green space affects residents’ weight outcomes should be further elucidated.Keywords: Green space; body weight; overweight; obesity; China; Review

  • Characteristics of childhood onset and post-puberty onset obesity and
           weight regain after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in Japanese subjects:
           a subgroup analysis of J-SMART

    • Abstract: Introduction: The psychosocial background of subjects with severe obesity developed from childhood onset obesity (CO) and their outcomes after bariatric surgery have not been fully investigated. Methods: 305 subjects were enrolled in the J-SMART study, which examined the effects of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) in Japan, and categorized into two groups: CO defined as onset up to 13 years of age (CO group) and post-puberty onset obesity defined as onset after 13 years of age (PPO group). The subjects were followed up for at least 2 years and up to 5 years after LSG. Changes in physical parameters and remission of obesity-related comorbidities were assessed at 2 years after LSG. Weight regain (WR) was also assessed by evaluating the nadir weight after LSG and maximum weight thereafter during follow-up period. Results: The mean postoperative follow-up period was 3.0 ± 1.1 years. 40.0% of the subjects had CO and these subjects had higher BMI and HOMA-β, and lower age, HbA1c, HDL cholesterol, and visceral/subcutaneous fat area ratio compared to those with PPO. The CO group was also characterized by having higher rates of mental retardation, developmental disorders and obesity in either parent, and lower rate of marriage compared to the PPO group. Two years after LSG, there were no differences in total weight loss and remission rates of diabetes, dyslipidemia and sleep apnea syndrome between the two groups, although remission rate of hypertension was higher in the CO group. The CO group also had a higher rate of WR after LSG than the PPO group, with CO, BMI, mental disorder and binge eating contributing to WR. Conclusion: This study suggests that CO might be associated with genetic and psychosocial factors. CO and PPO probably differ in pathogenesis and may require different treatment strategies.

  • A Genome-wide association study on abdominal adiposity-related traits in
           adult Korean men

    • Abstract: Introduction: Although previous genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have identified genetic susceptibility loci for abdominal adiposity, GWASs on Asian samples remain scarce. Therefore, we performed a GWAS for abdominal adipose tissue depots in a Korean population.Methods: A total of 1,937 Korean men were included in the study. Areas of abdominal fat were quantified by computed tomography. We performed a GWAS analysis under an additive model, and a replication study was conducted on 480 additional Korean adult men.Results: In the discovery step, we identified a total of 10 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with adiposity indicators (p < 1 × 10–5). The top SNP, rs1028014, for visceral adipose tissue (VAT) was located in the ZMAT4 gene and remained significant after adjustment for body mass index (BMI). Three additional SNPs were also associated with VAT-adj-BMI and located within the SLC26A10, FAM155A, and COL4A1-COL4A2 genes, respectively. In addition, we identified a SNP (rs4668224) of the MYO3B gene for visceral-to-subcutaneous fat ratio. For subcutaneous adipose tissue and total adipose tissue, two (rs6585735 and rs363527) and three SNPs (rs1487892, rs9357565, and rs1985358) were found, respectively. Overall, eight SNPs were used in the replication study; however, none of the SNPs reached our level of significance for replication (p < 0.0063). Nevertheless, rs4773144 of COL4A1-COL4A2 for VAT-adj-BMI was the most interesting SNP identified in previous GWASs for coronary artery disease (based on the same risk allele "G"), along with functional effects. Conclusion: This study suggests for the first time that a SNP (rs4773144) of COL4A1-COL4A2 may contribute to the increase in VAT level, especially in adult Korean men.

  • Changes in alcohol consumption, eating behaviors, and body weight during
           quarantine measures: Analysis of the CoCo-Fakt study

    • Abstract: Introduction: Public health measures enacted to reduce COVID-19 transmission have affected individuals’ lifestyles, mental health and psychological well-being. To date, little is known how stay-at-home orders have influenced the eating behaviors, weight development, and alcohol consumption of quarantined persons. The CoCo-Fakt cohort study analyzed these parameters and their association with psychological distress and coping strategies.Methods: An online survey was conducted of all persons who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 (infected persons = IP) between December 12, 2020, and January 6, 2021, as well as their close contacts (contact persons = CP) registered by the public health department of Cologne. 8,075 of 33,699 individuals were included in the analysis. In addition to demographic data, psychological distress, and coping strategies, information on changes in body weight, eating and drinking behaviors was collected. Results: IP lost 1.2 ± 4.4 kg during the quarantine period, and CP gained 1.6 ± 4.1 kg. The reasons given by IP for weight change were mainly loss of taste and feeling sick, whereas CP were more likely than IP to eat out of boredom. Higher psychological burden and lower coping strategies were associated with both weight gain and loss. Of the 30.8% of participants who changed their alcohol consumption during the quarantine period, CP in particular drank more alcohol (IP 15.2%; CP 47.7%). Significantly less alcohol was consumed by individuals with higher coping scores.Conclusion: In this short but psychologically stressful period of stay-at-home orders, changes in eating and drinking behavior as well as weight development are evident; mainly in high-risk contacts. To avoid possible long-term sequelae, health authorities should take these findings into account during the quarantine period; in particular, general practitioners should consider these findings during follow-up.

  • Supporting Weight Management during COVID-19 (SWiM-C): A randomised
           

    • Abstract: Introduction: Adults with overweight and obesity are vulnerable to weight gain and mental health deterioration during the COVID-19 pandemic. We developed a web-based, guided self-help intervention based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) that aims to support adults with overweight and obesity to prevent weight gain by helping them to manage their eating behaviours, be more physically active and protect their emotional wellbeing (“SWiM-C”). SWiM-C is a guided self-help programme using non-specialist guides to enhance scalability and population reach while minimising cost. This study evaluated the effect of SWiM-C on bodyweight, eating behaviour, physical activity and mental wellbeing in adults with overweight and obesity over 4 months during the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK. Methods: We randomised adults (BMI≥25kg/m2) to SWiM-C or to a wait-list standard advice group. Participants completed outcome assessments online at baseline and 4 months. The primary outcome was self-measured weight; secondary outcomes were eating behaviour, physical activity, experiential avoidance/psychological flexibility, depression, anxiety, stress, and wellbeing. We estimated differences between study groups in change in outcomes from baseline to 4 months using linear regression, adjusted for outcome at baseline and the randomisation stratifiers (BMI, sex). The trial was pre-registered (ISRCTN12107048).Results: 486 participants were assessed for eligibility; 388 participants were randomised (196 standard advice, 192 SWiM-C) and 324 were analysed. The adjusted difference in weight between SWiM-C and standard advice was -0.60kg (-1.67 to 0.47, p=0.27). SWiM-C led to improvements in uncontrolled eating (-3.61 [-5.94 to -1.28]), cognitive restraint (5.28 [2.81 to 7.75]), experiential avoidance (-3.39 [-5.55 to -1.23]), and wellbeing (0.13 [0.07 to 0.18]). Conclusions: SWiM-C improved several psychological determinants of successful weight management and had a protective effect on wellbeing during the pandemic. However, differences in weight and some other outcomes were compatible with no effect of the intervention, suggesting further refinement of the intervention is needed.
