Background: Obesity is followed by insulin resistance (IR) and low grade inflammation. In patients with metabolic syndrome (MS) and clinicaly evident vascular complications homocystein values are higher. Hyperhomocysteinemia correlates with hyperinsulinemia and IR, resulting in oxidative stress, which causes endothelial lesions and dysfunction, promoting atherosclerosis and hypertension.Objectives: To examine homocystein levels in patients with and witho...

Introduction: Central obesity is the source of inflammatory factors, causing endothelial dysfunction. In central nervous system, inflammatory factors mediate neurotransmitter metabolism promoting excitotoxicity and increase oxidative stress, and a major clinical symptom is depression. Mediterranean diet (MD) resulted as a good prevention method for depression.Aim: To examine the relationship of depression with abdominal obesity and metabolic syndrome (MS...

Background: Abdominal obesity, which in fact is a metabolic syndrome (MS), is related to decreased testosterone, insulin resistance (IR), increased inflammatory factors, non-alcoholic fat liver disease (NAFLD) and risk of early atherosclerosis. Elevated inflammatory markers (CRP) may interfere with insulin signal transduction at the neuronal level inducing hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.Objective: To examine testosterone relationship with abdominal obesit...
