Obesity 2019

October 01, 2019

an Endocrine Society Thematic Issue

Read our special collection of journal articles focused on obesity. Curation of the collection, based on articles published in 2019, was guided by Altmetric Attention Scores and Featured Article designations.

Clinical studies included in the collection demonstrate that bone loss following bariatric surgery can be ameliorated by exercise, indicate that obesity has disparate effects on reproductive hormones in girls versus boys during puberty, identify rare MC4R mutations in African American and Latino children with early-onset obesity, and more.

Basic science studies demonstrate that pancreatic ARNT/HIF1β expression affects lipid signaling in vivo, suggest that increased obesity risk associated with the N221D mutation is due to PC1/3-induced loss of stress resilience, and show that maternal diet-induced obesity causes intrauterine growth restriction during gestation.

Additional studies provide insight into how mindfulness may facilitate healthier eating behavior, suggest that BPA-like chemicals are correlated with obesity in children, and demonstrate that fish oil supplements reduce the expression of adipose inflammatory genes.

Review articles examine the latest glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) science and its translational implications, the benefits of bariatric surgery beyond treating morbid obesity, and the impact of gene-environment interactions on obesity and cardiovascular outcomes. Additional reviews examine the association between lipotoxic conditions and obesity and diabetes, the link between obesity-associated neuroinflammation and reproductive function, and explore the theory that evolutionary factors associated with climate may have shaped today’s obesity epidemic.
