Vitamin D insufficiency is highly prevalent in children (up to 40%), particularly in northern climates such as Alberta, due to reduced sunlight exposure and low intake. Although suboptimal vitamin D status and metabolic dysregulation are commonly observed in obesity, little is known about the...
Vaccenic acid (VA) is a ruminant-derived trans-fat and precursor of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). The objective of the present study was to explore the effects of VA on immune function in a model of the metabolic syndrome, JCR:LA-cp rats. Lean (2:1 mix of +/cp and +/+) and obese (cp/cp) rats,...
Background. Tools and resources (TRs) can help to prevent obesity in children, particularly in settings that are accessible to families and well-aligned with chronic disease prevention, such as primary care. To date, little is known about the TRs that primary care providers (PCPs) currently use...

The Relationship (or Lack Thereof) Between Weight Loss and Health-Related Quality of Life in the Severely ObeseDownload
The impact of weight and weight loss on health-related quality of life (HRQL) in obese individuals and, in particular, the severely obese, is poorly understood. We completed a meta-analysis of published weight loss intervention trials; conducted cross-sectional analyses to examine...
The prevalence of obesity worldwide has increased in the last few decades. The risk of obesity comes from its association with various clinical diseases especially cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. In this thesis, we assessed the expression of some drug metabolizing enzymes and transport...
The Effects of Elements of Cardiometabolic Syndrome on Metformin Disposition: Obesity and HyperlipidemiaDownload
The influences of obesity, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass bariatric (RYGB) surgery and hyperlipidemia on metformin pharmacokinetics (PK) were investigated. A sensitive and novel HPLC-UV reverse phase assay method was developed and utilized. Detection and mass characterization for metformin metabolites...
Obesity has become a major issue for healthcare providers as its prevalence continues to increase throughout the world. The literature suggests that increased body mass index (BMI) is associated with the development of certain cancers such as colorectal cancer (CRC). Consequently, CRC surgeons...
