Impact of a low fructose, low glycemic index and low glycemic load dietary intervention on liver function, body composition and cardio metabolic risk factors in children and adolescents with nonalcoholic fatty liver diseaseDownload
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common liver disease in obese children. Diets high in added fructose (high fructose corn syrup; HFCS)/glycemic index (GI)/glycemic load (GL) in children with NAFLD are associated with increased inflammation and liver dysfunction. We hypothesized that...

Maternal Essential Fatty Acid Status During Pregnancy and Postpartum in the Alberta Pregnancy Outcomes and Nutrition (APrON) Study and Infant OutcomesDownload

Background Probiotic products that may modify the intestinal microbiota are becoming increasingly available and known to consumers due to their potential to prevent or treat many pediatric health conditions. As scientific knowledge of the health benefits of probiotics increases, it is important...
Adequate adaptation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is important during pregnancy to ensure that the increased metabolic demands by the developing fetus are met. These include changes in surface area mediated by villus hypertrophy and enhanced functional capacity of individual nutrient...
Introduction: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) are increasing at an alarming rate globally. A common feature in these conditions is increased adiposity leading to insulin resistance (IR). Dyslipidemia is a major contributing...
