Abstract

Background: Obesity is a serious public health concern that has reached epidemic proportions; the prevalence, aswell as the severity of obesity in adolescents is increasing at an alarming rate. A close relationship was foundbetween weight status and dental caries. Thus this research aimed to assess the prevalence and severity of dentalcaries among overweight adolescent females in relation to physicochemical characteristics of stimulated wholesaliva in comparison with normal weight adolescent females.Materials and methods: The total sample involved for nutritional status assessment is composed of 2678 females aged13-15 years. This was performed using Body Mass Index specific for age and gender according to CDC growth chart(2000). The diagnosis and recording of dental caries was by using Decay, Missing, Filled surface index (DMFs); andaccording to the criteria of Manji et al (1989). Salivary samples were collected from 30 overweight females and theircontrol under standardized conditions and then analyzed for measuring salivary flow rate and viscosity, in addition toestimation essential elements (zinc, copper, calcium, iron, and total protein).Results: The caries experience among the overweight females was lower than that among the normal weight withnon significant difference. Salivary analysis demonstrated that the salivary flow rate was non significantly higheramong overweight females. The viscosity of saliva was having an equal value among both groups. The data analysisof salivary elements found that the zinc and copper concentrations were highly significant higher among theoverweight females than that among the normal weight. The opposite result found concerning salivary calcium levelwith also highly significant difference; while the iron and total protein were non significantly lower among theoverweight females. DMFs and its grades correlated negatively weak with salivary flow rate among overweightfemales; while concerning salivary viscosity, the correlation was direct weak with DMFs. Salivary copper, calcium andtotal protein showed an inverse correlation with dental caries.Conclusion: The results of the current research revealed that overweight affect the caries experience. Several ofsalivary factors that found to be higher among the overweight females might play a role in protection of teeth fromdental caries

Abstract

Caries is an infectious disease that is induced by the diet. Despite its decline in all age group on a worldwide basis, it is still a serious public health problem in children and its control should be a priority. It has demonstrated that dental caries can gradual reduce children's weight gain, which may be reversed after complete oral rehabilitation. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between age-specific body mass index (BMI-for-age) and dental caries among school children 7-12 years in Tikrit city.Material and method: A random sample of 390 school going healthy children aged 7-12 years were selected from different schools located in the Tikrit city. Height and weight for each child was recorded to obtain BMI-for- age. Dental caries was recorded (dmft, dmfs, DMFT and DMFS) according to WHO criteria. The data obtained was subjected to statistical analysis.The results showed that the underweight children were more likely to have caries experience than normal and overweight children for primary dentition (dmft 6.75 ± 0.56 and dmfs 17.21± 1.37) and for permanent dentition (DMFT 4.00 ± 0.58 and DMFS 6.48 ±1.23) with statistically no significant differences between the three groups.

Abstract

Metabolic syndrome is one of the serious problems that facing children all over the word, as it can lead to multiple health problems including psychological, cardiovascular, endocrinology and school performance.The aim of this study is to estimate the frequency of Metabolic Syndrome among overweight and obese children, and to detect the relation of age and gender,A cross sectional study conducted on 49 children in Central teaching hospital for children in Baghdad for one year (from 1/1/2013– 1/12/2013). Weight, height, blood pressure, waist circumference were taken. Blood glucose and lipid profile (triglyceride, high density lipoprotein, and cholesterol) were done for all children.Children mean ages were 8.28 ± 2.5 year. Percentage of Metabolic Syndrome among the study group was 28.6%.There was a high significant association of obesity, blood pressure, high density lipoprotein and cholesterol with Metabolic Syndrome (p-value<0.005), and only significant association with hyperglycemia, cholesterol and waist circumference (p-value <0.05), but no association with triglyceride.The difference in distribution of overweight and obese children by risk factors categories was highly significant and there was no significant association between the numbers of risk factors with gender.The prevelance of Metabolic Syndrome was 28.6%. Both age, gender and triglyceride have no significant association. The obesity, hypertension, high density lipoprotein were found to be highly significant association, while hyperglycemia and hypercholesterolemia were just significant association.

Abstract
Introduction:
High sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is one of new inflammatory markers which has been
proposed as independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and it is positively associated with
body weight. Little is known, however, about the utility of (hs-CRP) and other biomarkers in obese
hypertensive Iraqi patients.
Objectives:
To examine the hypothesis that there is a relation between obesity, hypertension and a chronic
low-grade inflammatory status (represented by high hs-CRP).
Patients and Method:
A total number of 99 patients stratified according to hypertension and obesity into two groups:
1. Obese hypertensive: Body mass index (BMI > 30 kg/m2 and blood pressure (BP) >140/90 mmHg
± history of taking anti hypertensive medications), n = 65, Age = (56.02 ± 4.379) years,
BMI = (35.68 ± 4.78) kg/m².
2. Over weight normotensive: (BMI > 25 kg/m² and < 30 kg/m2, BP < 140/90 mmHg), n = 34,
Age = (56.44 ± 3.17) years, BMI = (26.06 ± 3.05) kg/m².
Assessment of (hs-CRP) and lipid profile (total serum cholesterol (s.chol), serum triglyceride
(s.TG), low density lipoprotein (LDL), and high density lipoprotein (HDL) was done.
Results:
The (Mean ± SD) of (hs-CRP) in the patients and controls were (5.74 ±2.15) mg/l and
(2.14 ± 0.85) mg/1 respectively, (P < 0.001). The (Mean ± SD) of cholesterol for cases and control
were (215.17 ± 33.3) mg/dl and (197.81 ± 27.3) mg/dl respectively, (P < 0.05). For HDL were (51.31 ±
7.45) mg/dl and (54.63 ± 5.091) mg/dl respectively, (P < 0.05). For LDL were (136.9 ± 32.87) mg/dl and
(117.81 ± 24.73) mg/dl respectively, (P < 0.005). For BMI were (35.68 ± 4.78) kg/m2 and
(26.06 ± 3.05) kg/m2 respectively, (P < 0.001).
Conclusions:
There is an elevation of serum level of (hs-CRP) in hypertensive obese subject in comparison with low
levels in control group

Abstract

Background: Type 1 diabetes mellitus is a multifactorial syndrome due to a body's inability to synthesis insulin. In patients with type 1 DM, the beta cells are attacked by the immune system (specifically by macrophages and T lymphocytes) and killed, so insulin can no longer be synthesised. Resistin is a newly identified adipocyte secreted hormone belonging to a cysteine-rich protein family. Human resistin gene is expressed in pancreatic islets , pre- adipocytes and bone marrow. It is of relevance for inflammation processes as well as for lipid metabolism. The body mass index BMI a measured of relative weight, adjusted for height. Resistin serum levels were found to be related to body mass index (BMI) in human subjects. Waist circumference is minimally related to height, so correction for height (as in waist to height ratio) dose not improve its relation with intra- abdominal fat or ill healthObjective: The aim is to determin the role of Resistin in lean and overweight .Subjects and methods: sixty diabetic children ( 33 males and 27 females), aged (1.3-13) years (mean± SD) (5.6±2.8) years , were enrolled in this study. All had T1DM with no serious long- term complications and C-reactive protein for all patients was negative. All patients used short- and intermediate-acting subcutaneous insulin injections (two daily injections) and no other medication. Duration of disease varied from ( 0.13- 84) months . A matching group of thirty healthy volunteer children with age range of (1.3-13 ) years, (18 females ,12 males) were included as a control without any family history of diabetes. Serum Rresistin was measured by( enzyme linked immunosorbant assay , ELISA) . Anthropometric determined are measured as BMI and WHR. BMI (weight in kg divided by the square of the height in meters), Waist and hip circumferences were measured to determine waist-hip ratio (WHR) following standardized procedures .Results: Resistin values showed no significant difference when comparing both groups (patients and controls). A significant decrease in the level of fasting serum Resistin was found in overweight patients when compared to control, while no such significance was shown for serum Resistin in lean patients when compared to controls. However a significant correlation was found when comparing serum Resistin and BMI in controls but the correlation was not significant in patients.Conclusion : Resistin levels was found to be highly associated with obesity in healthy controls with a significant elevation in overweight when compared to lean sunjects. However the opposite was found in patients under treatment with insulin. The latter was found to have a depleting effect on Resistin gene expression.

Abstract

Background: Despite its clinical use as a sensitive measure of left ventricular performance, little is known about whether MPI is influenced by increasing BMI or WHR. Aim: The present study is targeted at investigating the impact of different grades of BMI and WHR on left ventricular myocardial performance index in normal men. Method: 82 normal male subjects were involved in this study. The subjects were divided as per BMI groups into group Ia (BMI= 20-24.9, n=34, mean age 32.315±10.179 as a control group) and group IIa (BMI= >24.9, n=44, mean age 38.181±11.501); as well as, by dividing the subjects in to two groups according to Waist-Hip ratio, group Ib (WHR <0.8-0.9, n=45, mean age 31.8±8.91) and group IIb (WHR >0.9, n=37, age 39.918±12.239). MPI was determined in all these subjects using the formula proposed by Tie as MPI=IVCT+IVRT/ET. Results: There were statistically no significant variations in MPI with increased BMI (p>0.05) or WHR (p>0.05). There was no linear correlation between MPI and BMI (r= 0.0023), and MPI and WHR (r=0.0007). Conclusion: MPI is a simple and accurate tool for quantitative assessment of left ventricular functions and because of easy application, cost effectiveness, and reproducibility; it could be regarded as an important measurement in a comprehensive hemodynamic study, especially in those with increased BMI or WHR, in whom the increased BMI or WHR was found to have no effect on MPI.

خلفية الدراسة: على الرغم من استعمال مؤشر كفاءة البطين الأيسر كقياس حساس لمعرفة كفاءة البطين الأيسر,القليل من المعلومات متوفرة فيما إذا كان هذا المؤشر يتأثر بزيادة مؤشر كتلة الجسم أو زيادة نسبة الخصر إلى الورك.الهدف من الدراسة: تحرّت الدراسة الحالية عن تأثير الدرجات المختلفة لمؤشر كتلة الجسم ونسبة الخصر إلى الورك على مؤشر كفاءة البطين الأيسر في الرجال الطبيعيين.الطريقة: الدراسة تضمنت 82 متبرع من الذكور الطبيعيين, قسّموا حسب دليل كتلة الجسم إلى مجموعتين, مجموعة 1أ (مؤشر كتلة الجسم 20-24,9, العدد=34, متوسط العمر=32,315±10,179) ومجموعة 2أ (مؤشر كتلة الجسم أكثر من 24,9, العدد= 44, متوسط العمر=38,181±11,501). كذلك قسموا إلى مجموعتين حسب نسبة الخصر إلى الورك, مجموعة 1ب (نسبة الخصر إلى الورك= اقل من 0,8 إلى 0,9, العدد=45, متوسط العمر=31,8±8,91 ) و مجموعة 2ب (نسبة الخصر إلى الورك= اكثرمن0,9, العدد=37, متوسط العمر=39,918±12,239).النتائج: إحصائيا لا توجد هناك اختلافات معنوية بين مؤشر كفاءة البطين الأيسر مع زيادة مؤشر كتلة الجسم أو نسبة الورك إلى الخصر. كذلك لاتوجد هناك علاقة خطية بين مؤشر كفاءة البطين الأيسر مع مؤشر كتلة الجسم أو نسبة الورك إلى الخصر. الاستنتاج: مؤشر كفاءة القلب أداة بسيطة ودقيقة للتقييم الكمي لوظائف البطين الأيسر,وبسبب التطبيق السهل لهذا المؤشر لذا يمكن استخدامه في دراسات جهاز الدوران الشاملة خصوصا أولئك الذين لديهم زيادة في مؤشر كتلة الجسم أو نسبة الورك إلى الخصر حيث إن هذه الزيادة لا تؤثر بشكل ملحوظ عليه.
