Higher fat mass and fat mass accretion during the first six months of life in exclusively breastfed infants

BackgroundEarly nutrition influences infant growth and body composition, which may play a role in the infant’s metabolic programming. Breastfed infants appear to have higher fat mass than formula-fed infants, but most comparisons have been cross-sectional, and evidence is scarce. The aim of this study was to describe fat mass and fat mass accretion during the first six months of...

Anthropometric and clinical correlates of fat mass in healthy term infants at 6 months of age

Body composition in infancy plays a central role in the programming of metabolic diseases. Fat mass (FM) is determined by personal and environmental factors. Anthropometric measurements allow for estimations of FM in many age groups; however, correlations of these measurements with FM in early stages of life are scarcely reported. The aim of this study was to evaluate...

Women with endometriosis improved their peripheral antioxidant markers after the application of a high antioxidant diet

Background Oxidative stress has been identified in the peritoneal fluid and peripheral blood of women with endometriosis. However, there is little information on the antioxidant intake for this group of women. The objectives of this work were 1) to compare the antioxidant intake among women with and without endometriosis and 2) to design and apply a high antioxidant diet to...
