    Abstract : During recent decades, lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) has become the most common indication for spine surgery, a change that coincides with a higher worldwide prevalence of overweight and obesity. Thus, surgical treatment of LSS in the overweight and obese population is common and increasing in scope. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diet and/or exercise treatment for weight loss in overweight and obese women after childbirth

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Bertz; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; weight loss; overweight; postpartum; lactation; diet; exercise; behavior modification; DLW; body composition; RCT; Grounded Theory;

    Abstract : AIM: The aim of the research presented in this thesis was to evaluate whether, dietary behavior modification treatment (D), or physical exercise behavior modification treatment (E), or the combination of both (DE), provide short and long-term weight loss compared to control (C) among overweight and obese lactating women, and if so how. METHODS: At 10-14 weeks postpartum, 68 lactating Swedish women with a pre-pregnancy body mass index of 25-35 were randomized to 12 weeks of treatment or control. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiovascular structure and function in obesity. The impact of body composition, sleep apnea and sustained weight loss

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Dimitris Kardassis; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obesity; weight loss; cardiac function; cardiac structure; inflammation; intima-media thickness; obstructive sleep apnoea;

    Abstract : Background: Obesity is associated with disturbances in cardiovascular structure and function varying along with the degree of fatness, but the mechanisms underlying this co-variation are unclear. Short-term weight loss appears to have favourable effects on the cardiovascular system, but whether such improvements are maintained in the long run is unknown. READ MORE
