Distinct infant feeding type-specific plasma metabolites at age 3 months associate with body composition at 2 years

7 monthes ago   |   By Clinical Nutrition

Early life is a critical window for adiposity programming and metabolic profile may affect this programming. We investigated if plasma metabolites at age 3 months were associated with fat mass, fat free mass and abdominal subcutaneous and visceral fat outcomes at age 2 years in a cohort of healthy infants and if these associations were different between infants receiving exclusive breastfeeding and those with exclusive formula feeding .

In a cohort of patients with type 2 diabetes treated with simvastatin, fenofibrate decreased the composite of heart failure hospitalizations or cardiovascular mortality, according to an analysis of the ACCORD Lipid trial.
This effect was predominantly observed in patients with standard background glucose-lowering therapy.
João Pedro Ferreira, MD, PhD, a researcher at the Université de Lorraine in Nancy, France, and colleagues conducted the secondary analysis to assess the effect of fenofibrate compared with placebo in heart failure outcomes among patients with type 2 diabetes

COVID-19 led to unprecedented decline in global life expectancy

The COVID-19 pandemic reduced the world's life expectancy by about 2 years, according to recent estimates published in Population and Development Review.
“Since 1950, annual declines of that magnitude had only been observed on rare occasions, such as Cambodia in the 1970s, Rwanda in the 1990s, and possibly some sub-Saharan African nations at the peak of the AIDS pandemic,” wrote Patrick Heuveline, a professor of sociology and the associate director of the California Center for Population Research at UCLA.
Life expectancy declined from 2019 to 2020 and again from 2020 to 2021
