In this review, we highlight the specific metabolic effects of fructose consumption that are involved in the development of metabolic syndrome non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and its association with obesity. The specifics effects of fructose on the liver are particularly germane to the development of a vicious cycle that starts with liver steatosis driving insulin resistance. These effects include 1) increased de novo lipogenesis, 2) increased liver fat, 3) dyslipidemia 4) increased uric acid production which feeds back on increased fructose metabolism and, 5) increased methylglyoxal and Maillard reaction that may affect adenosyl-monophosphate-dependent kinase Fructose increases cortisol activation especially in visceral fat...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Considerable attention is given nowadays to the presence of cardiovascular diseases risk factors in children. The current blood lipid classification system for Chinese children was based on the United States National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) cutpoints, which did not take the age, gender and race differences into consideration. This study aimed to develop gender- and age-specific lipid cutpoints for dyslipidemia screening in Chinese children and compare the ability of new cutpoints and NCEP pediatric cutpoints to predict obesity and unfavorable blood pressure (BP) levels...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The profile of cholesterol metabolism, i.e., high absorption vs. high synthesis, may have a role in the development of atherosclerosis, the early lesions of which can be present already in childhood. Since there is no information on cholesterol metabolism in children from birth to adolescence, we evaluated cholesterol metabolism in 0-15 year-old children and adolescents without dyslipidemia. METHODS: The study population consisted of 96 children (39 girls, 57 boys) divided into age groups <1 (n = 14), 1-5 (n = 37), 6-10 (n = 24), and 11-15 (n = 21) years...

Pediatric lipid screening and management with the aim of reducing and preventing adult disease is an internationally accepted concept, and guidelines have been published in several countries. However, implementation by the practicing pediatric community in the United States has been less than expected and delays have been attributed to uncertainty among providers. Reduced screening rates have also been reported for conditions contributing to arterial wall pathology such as obesity, hypertension, and prediabetes despite accumulating evidence that detection and intervention can lead to risk reversal...
