patients with obesity: a systematic review 2024-04-26T14:34:46+00:00 Monysa Soares Bonfim [email protected] Carlos Eduardo Fermino Carneiro [email protected] Lara Arosteguy de Oliveira [email protected] Mikaell Alexandre Gouvêa Faria [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Obesity establishes a long-term chronic imbalance between calorie intake and energy expenditure, which causes serious comorbidities. MicroRNAs stand out, which are a class of small non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression. Changes in their expression and functions have been associated with several diseases, including metabolic disorders and obesity. Enteral and parenteral nutrition therapy functions as an important regulator of microRNAs against inflammatory and metabolic processes. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a systematic review of the main approaches to enteral and parenteral nutrition therapy in patients with obesity, to regulate the gene expression of microRNAs to mitigate inflammatory processes and metabolic disorders. <strong>Methods:</strong> The PRISMA Platform systematic review rules were followed. The search was carried out from January to March 2024 in the Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> A total of 117 articles were found. A total of 41 articles were evaluated in full and 30 were included in this systematic review. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 20 studies with a high risk of bias and 24 studies that did not meet GRADE. Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup> =59.2% &gt;50%. It was concluded that studies accumulate evidence that circulating miRNAs are associated with obesity. Some microRNAs have been implicated in the control of body weight gain, glucose homeostasis, insulin resistance, and lipid metabolism. In this sense, enteral feeding is an effective and safe treatment before bariatric surgery, with ketogenic enteral nutrition leading to better clinical results than hypocaloric enteral nutritional protocols in glycemic and lipid profiles. A diverse range of nutritional interventions are effective in treating obesity and its comorbidities, mainly through nutrotherapy triggers on microRNAs.</p> 2024-04-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Monysa Soares Bonfim, Carlos Eduardo Fermino Carneiro, Lara Arosteguy de Oliveira, Mikaell Alexandre Gouvêa Faria https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/355 The weight of obesity: a retrospective analysis of the direct costs of hospitalizations due to obesity between 2011 and 2020 for the unified health system in Brazil 2024-04-16T12:56:45+00:00 Welisson Barbosa Costa [email protected] Luciana Saldenha Ravaglio [email protected] Leonardo de Souza Teixeira [email protected] Arthur Dias Mendoza [email protected] <p><strong>Aim:</strong> This study aimed to analyze the evolution of obesity-related costs over the past 10 years for Brazil's Unified Health System (SUS) and provide insights for guiding and expanding health management and promotion measures. <strong>Methods</strong>: An observational and retrospective study was conducted using secondary data from 2011 to 2020, extracted from DataSUS with the ICD-10 code for obesity. Statistical analysis was performed to assess trends in hospitalizations and costs related to obesity. <strong>Results</strong>: During the analyzed period, there was a substantial increase of 110% in hospitalizations and 167% in obesity-related costs for SUS. Female patients (86%) accounted for the majority of hospitalizations, while males (14%) had lower representation. Predominantly, white individuals (62%) were admitted, whereas indigenous individuals had the lowest representation (0,007%). The Southern region contributed to 46% of total cases, in contrast to the Northern region, which accounted for only 0,9%. <strong>Conclusion</strong>: The findings of this study indicate a significant rise in hospitalizations and associated costs related to obesity for Brazil's Unified Health System. These results underscore the urgency of implementing health promotion and prevention measures, both in the public and private sectors. There is a need for optimized allocation of human resources, including trained professionals for obesity treatment, to mitigate the burden of obesity-related morbidity and mortality and alleviate the strain on the healthcare system.</p> 2024-04-16T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Welisson Barbosa Costa, Luciana Saldenha Ravaglio, Leonardo de Souza Teixeira, Arthur Dias Mendoza https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/354 Major clinical implications of adequate nutrition in children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: a concise systematic review 2024-04-14T15:41:23+00:00 Michelle Silva Rocha [email protected] Lorenna Lemos de Aquino [email protected] Gabriela de Oliveira Gonçalves [email protected] Sonaldo Marcos Vieira Barbosa [email protected] Jorge Luiz de Freitas [email protected] Vinícius Bezerra Lopes [email protected] Weyller Camargo Dias [email protected] Raimundo Nonato de Araújo Soares [email protected] Ana Paula de Cássia Oliveira [email protected] Edinaldo Marinho de Carvalho [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by inappropriate levels of impulsive behavior, hyperactivity, and/or inattention, with a worldwide prevalence estimated at around 7% in childhood and adolescence, and around 3 % in adulthood, with a higher prevalence in boys than in girls. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to present the main clinical implications of adequate nutrition in children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. <strong>Methods:</strong> The PRISMA Platform systematic review rules were followed. The research was carried out from January to March 2024 in the Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> A total of 84 articles were found, 21 articles were evaluated, and 14 were included in this systematic review. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 19 studies with a high risk of bias and 30 studies that did not meet GRADE. Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup>=62.8%&gt;50%. Intake of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) fatty acids daily for 8 weeks is associated with less impulsive behavior in children with ADHD. Dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids reduces ADHD symptoms in both individuals with ADHD and typically developing children. A Mediterranean diet may improve BIS results, although our results are not conclusive in this population. The daily intake of calories and nutrients in patients taking methylphenidate is generally lower than in a healthy population of similar age. Co-supplementation of vitamin D and magnesium over 8 weeks may improve behavioral function and mental health in children with ADHD.</p> 2024-04-14T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Michelle Silva Rocha, Lorenna Lemos de Aquino, Gabriela de Oliveira Gonçalves, Sonaldo Marcos Vieira Barbosa, Jorge Luiz de Freitas, Vinícius Bezerra Lopes, Weyller Camargo Dias, Raimundo Nonato de Araújo Soares, Ana Paula de Cássia Oliveira, Edinaldo Marinho de Carvalho https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/353 Action of cannabidiol in interaction with microRNAs and exosomes in modulation of inflammatory and immune processes in athletes: a systematic review 2024-04-12T13:23:53+00:00 Rafaelle Paes de Barros [email protected] Omar Ahmad Abou Abbas [email protected] Douglas Stélio Lima Martins [email protected] Keila Regina Matos Cantanhede [email protected] Caroline Oliva Carvalho Borges [email protected] Paola Filgueiras David de Souza [email protected] Thiago Pegoretti Nogueira [email protected] Mirela Luna Santana Gomes [email protected] Elisabete Mendonça Rêgo Peixoto [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> The correct interaction between elements of the endocannabinoid system plays an important role in the development of the central nervous system. Clinical and preclinical studies suggest that cannabidiol (CBD) may be useful for athletes due to its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anxiolytic, and neuroprotective properties and its influence on the sleep-wake cycle. In addition, a series of implications for epigenetic processes have also been proven, through changes in the expression of microRNAs responsible for modulating the immune and inflammatory systems. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to develop a systematic review study to highlight the main aspects of cannabidiol in the interaction with microRNAs and exosomes in the modulation of inflammatory and immunological processes in athletes. <strong>Methods:</strong> The systematic review rules of the PRISMA Platform were followed. The research was carried out from February to April 2023 in Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> A total of 228 articles were found, and 84 articles were evaluated in full and 33 were included and developed in this systematic review study. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 20 studies with a high risk of bias and 90 studies that did not meet GRADE. CBD has been reported to exert a range of physiological, biochemical, and psychological effects with the potential to benefit human health. For example, there is preliminary supporting evidence for the anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, analgesic, and anxiolytic actions of CBD and the possibility that it may protect against gastrointestinal damage associated with inflammation and promote the healing of traumatic skeletal injuries. The combination of Δ9-THC and CBD can alter the activity of microRNAs responsible for increasing the biosynthesis of inflammatory mediators, leading to a reduction in the inflammatory profile. However, it is important to recognize that these findings are very preliminary, sometimes inconsistent, and largely derived from preclinical studies. These studies are limited in their generalizability to athletes and often administer high doses of CBD. The central observation is that there is a lack of studies that directly investigate CBD and sports performance.</p> 2024-04-12T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Rafaelle Paes de Barros, Omar Ahmad Abou Abbas, Douglas Stélio Lima Martins, Keila Regina Matos Cantanhede, Caroline Oliva Carvalho Borges, Paola Filgueiras David de Souza, Thiago Pegoretti Nogueira, Mirela Luna Santana Gomes, Elisabete Mendonça Rêgo Peixoto https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/352 Tactile and smell/taste sensitivity and accepted foods according to sensory properties: a cross-sectional study with children from a reference center in feeding difficulties 2024-04-03T21:09:35+00:00 Raquel Ricci [email protected] Priscila Maximino [email protected] Luana Romão Nogueira [email protected] Nathália Gioia de Paula [email protected] Camila Fussi [email protected] Mauro Fisberg [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Children with feeding difficulties are more likely to present sensory sensitivities and detect meaningful changes in the sensory properties of foods and reject new foods. <strong>Objective:</strong> The aims of the study were to identify the top food sources of energy according to children sensitivity profile, and investigate whether there are differences between children sensitivity profile and number of food categories consumed according to their sensory properties. <strong>Methods</strong>: This was a cross-sectional study with 65 children recruited from an outpatient clinic for children with feeding difficulties, Brazil. Socio-demographics and weight status were included to characterize the sample. Sensory processing using the adapted and validated Short Sensory Profile (SSP) and included the tactile and smell/taste processing domains. Parents reported the number and sources of foods/preparations accepted/consumed by their children. Foods accepted were classified according to the adapted “What We Eat in Latin American - WWELA” classification system. Four aspects of sensory properties were subjectively evaluated for all foods accepted in taste, color, consistency, and texture. <strong>Results</strong>: Most of the children with tactile and smell/taste sensitivities were classified as combined probable/definite differences, with 52.3% and 92.3%, respectively. Average number of foods categories accepted was 18.81. Rice, whole milk, and banana were among the top food sources for each of sensory processing domains examined. Only children in smell/taste sensitivity showed significant differences for consuming more fibrous foods, with children under typical performance accepting more foods (28.50 2.12) than combined probable/definite differences (16.86± 5.25). <strong>Conclusion</strong>: Child sensory processing aspects are important when considering the exposure in relation to child acceptance of foods.</p> 2024-04-03T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Raquel Ricci, Priscila Maximino, Luana Romão Nogueira, Nathália Gioia de Paula, Camila Fussi, Mauro Fisberg https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/350 Major considerations of enteral nutritional therapy in patients with congestive heart failure: a systematic review 2024-03-18T23:58:02+00:00 Alexsandro Pereira de Andrade [email protected] Alline Noleto Lima Luna [email protected] Rafael de Andrade Luna [email protected] Luiz Luna Barbosa [email protected] Lyenka Maria do Monte Pinto [email protected] Raimundo Pereira de Oliveira Neto [email protected] Huggo Luan Barros Medeiros [email protected] Ted Igor Praga Xavier de Brito [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Nutrition in the cardiovascular area has focused on improving lifestylerelated diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, obesity, and metabolic syndrome from the point of view of primary and secondary prevention, that is, “nutrition for weight loss ” and nutritional guidance has been required. Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a serious and growing public health problem worldwide. Approximately 25 million people are carriers of this disease and two million new cases are diagnosed each year, and enteral nutrition has been highlighted. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to develop a systematic review of the main clinical outcomes that highlight the importance of enteral nutritional therapy in patients with congestive heart failure. <strong>Methods:</strong> The PRISMA Platform systematic review rules were followed. The research was carried out from October to November 2023 in the Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> 143 articles were found. A total of 45 articles were evaluated and 34 were included in this systematic review. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 21 studies with a high risk of bias and 17 studies that did not meet GRADE and AMSTAR-2. It was concluded enteral nutrition is highly recommended in an attempt to mitigate weight loss in these patients. Enteral diet therapy can be infused continuously or intermittently. Studies have shown that more debilitated and less active patients better accept the diet via continuous tube, slowly and for a long period, even in those with heart disease.</p> 2024-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Alexsandro Pereira de Andrade, Alline Noleto Lima Luna, Rafael de Andrade Luna, Luiz Luna Barbosa, Lyenka Maria do Monte Pinto, Raimundo Pereira de Oliveira Neto, Huggo Luan Barros Medeiros, Ted Igor Praga Xavier de Brito https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/349 Investigation of regenerative nutrology of cells/molecules to the organism: a systematic review 2024-03-18T22:46:23+00:00 Alessandra Leal de Oliveira [email protected] Thuany da Silva Teixeira [email protected] Mariana Carolina Braga [email protected] Lucas Emanuel de Lima Azevedo [email protected] Lara Souza Crepaldi [email protected] Renata Cristina Taveira Azevedo [email protected] Nathalia Galindo Cordeiro [email protected] Rodrigo siqueira de Carvalho [email protected] Cristiana Alvarenga Spadinger Soares [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> In the context of tissue regeneration and nutrology, stem cells from adult tissue mediate homeostasis and regeneration of tissues and organs. These decisions are directly integrated with the body's energy balance and nutritional status. Endogenous metabolites and dietary nutrients can directly influence epigenetic enzymes. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a systematic review of the regenerative nutrology of cells and molecules in the body. <strong>Methods: </strong>The systematic review rules of the PRISMA Platform were followed. The research was carried out from April to June 2023 in Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> A total of 112 articles were found.

Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 18 studies with a high risk of bias and 18 studies that did not meet GRADE. It was evidenced that the metabolism of stem cells was centered on the central metabolism of carbon and the balance between glycolysis versus oxidative phosphorylation in the regulation of cell destiny. Epigenetic modifications to DNA and histones, proteins that alter cellular fate, control chromatin accessibility and downstream gene expression. In addition to the connection between metabolism and epigenetic pathways, nutrients can impact cellular status by modulating signaling pathway activity. A clear example is through the mechanistic targeting of the rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway, and in particular the mTOR 1 complex.

Interest in a personalized approach is increasing in sports to maximize each individual's athletic ability in endurance and strength sports. Polyphenols represent a heterogeneous class of compounds with marked antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The impact of the gut microbiota on the bioavailability and activity of polyphenols is highlighted. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a systematic review to highlight the main relationships between polyphenols, gut microbiota, and sports performance. <strong>Methods:</strong> The systematic review rules of the PRISMA Platform were followed. The research was carried out from May to July 2023 in Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion: </strong>A total of 115 articles were found, and 81 articles were evaluated in full and 76 were included and developed in this systematic review study. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 6 studies with a high risk of bias and 10 studies that did not meet GRADE. As a result and conclusion, it was shown that the metabolic mechanisms favored by polyphenols improve sports performance, improve cardiometabolic functions, reduce recovery times and post-exercise pain, maintain a low degree of oxidative stress, and avoid unregulated inflammatory processes. Thus, polyphenols are able, through their interaction with the gut microbiota, to favor the proliferation of bacterial genera of great importance for metabolic and cognitive functions, such as Akkermansia, Lactobacilli, and Bifidobacteria. Gut microbiota metabolizes polyphenols in the colon to produce small bioactive molecules that exert epigenetic mechanisms on biochemical pathways modulating gene expression. Polyphenols have multiple biological effects, and future exercise studies should be appropriately and specifically designed to determine the physiological interactions between exercise and the selected supplement, rather than just considering performance.</p> 2024-02-16T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Lara Souza Crepaldi, Thuany da Silva Teixeira, Mariana Carolina Braga, Alessandra Leal de Oliveira, Lucas Emanuel de Lima Azevedo, Renata Cristina Taveira Azevedo, Nathalia Galindo Cordeiro, Rodrigo siqueira de Carvalho https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/342 Clinical approaches to the ketogenic diet in the treatment of obesity and other chronic diseases: a systematic review 2024-01-31T18:13:10+00:00 Lorenna Lemos de Aquino [email protected] Michelle Silva Rocha [email protected] Maria Eduarda Teodoro Andrade [email protected] Pamela Crestani Loro [email protected] Fabiana Negreli da Silva Koslinski [email protected] Raimundo Nonato de Araújo Soares [email protected] Laura Belini Soares [email protected] Thais Fernandes Borges [email protected] Vinícius Bezerra Lopes [email protected] Ademilton Maximiano de Paula Júnior [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> The ketogenic diet, a restrictive diet, is mainly characterized by high fat content, low or absent carbohydrate content, and low or normal amounts of protein. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to present the important role of the ketogenic diet in the treatment of obesity and other chronic diseases. <strong>Methods: </strong>The PRISMA Platform systematic review rules were followed.

Cancer cachexia is associated with poor tolerance to antitumor treatments, reduced quality of life, and a negative impact on survival. Unintentional weight loss has been associated with a negative impact on multiple outcomes in cancer patients, including survival and quality of life.<strong> Objective: </strong>It was to present the main evidence of the nutrological and pharmacological treatment of cancer cachexia through a systematic review.<strong> Methods: </strong>The systematic review rules of the PRISMA Platform were followed. The research was carried out from October a December 2023 in Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion: </strong>A total of 127 articles were found. A total of 67 articles were evaluated and 24 were included in this systematic review. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 10 studies with a high risk of bias and 10 studies that did not meet GRADE. Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup>=74.5%&gt;50%. Based on the results, symptoms associated with cancer cachexia are thought to be caused by tumor-induced changes in host metabolism that result in systemic inflammation and abnormal neurohormonal responses. The sarcopenia seen in many patients with cancer cachexia is caused, in part, by increased activation of circulating proteolysis-inducing factor (PIF) and skeletal muscle protein breakdown by the ubiquitin-proteasome pathways. The nutritional consequences of cancer treatments must be identified early with screening and assessment of nutritional status. Nutritional intervention includes screening and appropriate nutritional assessment, which should begin early in the disease course to reduce or delay negative effects on therapy and quality of life. Liquid nutritional supplements may be useful to help increase caloric intake. Numerous investigations have reported orexigenic activity associated with progestational agents such as megestrol acetate and medroxyprogesterone. Megestrol acetate has received the most attention in randomized controlled trials of cancer patients. Also noteworthy was the use of corticosteroids and mirtazapine for weight gain and pain control.</p> 2024-01-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Roberto Claudio Correia Filho, Mariana Britez Mustafá Correia, Vinícius Santos Mustafá, Marcelo José Diesel https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/340 Major clinical outcomes of the regulation of metainflammation in patients with obesity in the light of nutrology: a systematic review 2024-01-26T14:02:09+00:00 Renan Francisco Merloto [email protected] Bruna Rocha Soares [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Obesity stands out as a multifactorial disease that can cause several public health problems. There are 2.0 billion overweight and obese people in the world, and Brazil is in fifth place in the world ranking. A healthy nutritional status promotes immune function and can prevent the onset of a serious inflammatory process and severe infections, especially in times of pandemics such as COVID-19. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to highlight the main clinical outcomes of the regulation of meta-inflammation in patients with obesity in the light of nutrology. <strong>Methods:</strong> The systematic review rules of the PRISMA Platform were followed. The research was carried out from August to September 2023 in Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> A total of 130 articles were found. A total of 42 articles were fully evaluated and 29 were included and developed in the present systematic review study. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 29 studies at high risk of bias and 21 studies that did not meet the GRADE.

Research has shown that unbalanced eating patterns, such as the Western diet, rich in simple sugars, refined carbohydrates, and saturated and trans fatty acids, lead to chronic inflammatory responses, increased adipose deposition, and future comorbidities associated with overweight and obesity. Calorie restriction decreased CRP in obese patients and diet administration over 12 weeks had a beneficial effect. Furthermore, obese patients with antioxidant supplementation had lower values of BMI, waist circumference, fasting blood glucose level, and assessment of the homeostasis model of insulin resistance when compared to the placebo group, as well as having lower levels of total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, malondialdehyde and tumor necrosis factor-alpha. n-3 PUFA supplementation can significantly reduce serum C-reactive protein (CRP), tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα), and interleukin 6 (IL-6) concentrations.</p> 2024-01-26T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Renan Francisco Merloto, Bruna Rocha Soares https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/339 Nutritional modulation of gut microbiota in inflammatory bowel disease: a systematic review 2024-01-18T22:32:21+00:00 Mariana Magalhães Bandeira Gomes [email protected] Gabriela Magalhães Bandeira Gomes [email protected] Mariana Carolina Braga [email protected] Manuelle Gaudêncio de Oliveira [email protected] Douglas Stélio Lima Martins [email protected] Omar Ahmad Abou Abbas [email protected] Roberto Claudio Correia Filho [email protected] Vivian Menezes Irineu [email protected] Keila Regina Matos Cantanhede [email protected] Izabela Augusta de Oliveira Medeiros [email protected] Darwin dos Santos Ribeiro [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) have shown an increase in incidence worldwide. The pathogenesis of IBD is that genetically susceptible individuals develop intolerance to dysregulated gut microbiota (dysbiosis) and chronic inflammation develops as a result of poor dietary triggers. Diet plays an important role in modulating the gut microbiota and can be applied as a therapeutic tool to improve the course of the disease. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a systematic review of the main interactions between nutrology, gut microbiota, and inflammatory bowel disease, to elucidate the main clinical outcomes of the disease after nutrological treatment, analyzing the main macro and micronutrients. <strong>Methods:</strong> The PRISMA Platform systematic review rules were followed. The search was carried out from August to October 2023 in the Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> 144 articles were found.

Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup>=59.9%&gt;50%. With nutritional treatment, several micronutrients have the potential to modulate intestinal inflammation. Immunonutrition has demonstrated its importance through vitamins A, C, E, and D, folic acid, beta-carotene, and trace elements such as zinc, selenium, manganese, and iron. The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyol diet, and the Mediterranean diet also appear to show strong anti-inflammatory properties and promise to improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease. Diet modulation can control IBD by reducing persistent intestinal symptoms, balancing the gut microbiota, and reducing markers of inflammation. Dietary therapy can improve the quality of life of IBD patients.</p> 2024-01-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mariana Magalhães Bandeira Gomes, Gabriela Magalhães Bandeira Gomes, Mariana Carolina Braga, Manuelle Gaudêncio de Oliveira, Douglas Stélio Lima Martins, Omar Ahmad Abou Abbas, Roberto Claudio Correia Filho, Vivian Menezes Irineu, Keila Regina Matos Cantanhede, Izabela Augusta de Oliveira Medeiros, Darwin dos Santos Ribeiro https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/338 Management of enteral/parenteral therapy in patients with obesity in the light of exosomes/microRNAs: a systematic review 2024-01-11T20:53:37+00:00 Lara Suellen Marinho São Mateus [email protected] Barbara Ferreira dos Santos [email protected] Giovana Pissinin Rissi [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Alteration in the homeostasis of the intestinal microbiota is related to the prevalence of obesity, which could reach up to 57.8% of the adult world population by 2030. Likewise, the global incidence rate of type 2 diabetes, which represents 90-95 % of all diabetes cases. Extracellular vesicles (exosomes and microRNAs) have emerged as main vehicles for intercellular and intermolecular communication, including those established between the intestinal microbiota and mammals. Providing adequate nutritional therapy with essential nutrients can help mitigate the consequences of the catabolic response. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to bring together the main considerations of enteral/parenteral nutritional therapy in patients with obesity, highlighting the management of inflammatory and metabolic processes through exosomes and microRNAs. <strong>Methods:</strong> The PRISMA Platform systematic review rules were followed.

Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup>=55.4%&gt;50%. It was concluded that probiotics suppress inflammation by inhibiting several signaling pathways and reducing the global activation of NF-κβ and the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Probiotics influence receptor antagonism, receptor expression, binding and expression of adapter proteins, expression of negative regulatory signal molecules, and mainly the induction of microRNAs. These microRNAs can modulate the gene expression of tumor cells together with regulatory T cells that have important functions in the tumor microenvironment, mainly in inducing immune evasion. Some modulatory effects of probiotics include the production of cytokines by epithelial cells, increased mucin secretion and phagocytosis and NK cell activity, activation of T and NKT cells, stimulation of IgA production, and decreased proliferation of T cells. The gut microbiota has a major impact on the systemic immune system. The specific microbiota controls cell differentiation in which CD4+ T cells (Th17 cells) secrete IL-17. The presence of Th17 cells and regulatory T cells is associated with the gut microbiota.</p> 2024-01-09T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mariana Carolina Braga, Alessandra Leal de Oliveira, Thuany da Silva Teixeira, Lucas Emanuel de Lima Azevedo, Lara Souza Crepaldi, Renata Cristina Taveira Azevedo, Nathalia Galindo Cordeiro, Rodrigo siqueira de Carvalho, Mariana Magalhães Bandeira Gomes, Willdenberg Xavier Lira https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/336 Clinical studies and meta-analysis on the effects of collagen, vitamin, and nutrient supplementation for the rejuvenation of collagenic fibers: a systematic review 2024-01-05T12:58:21+00:00 Michelle Silva Rocha [email protected] Lorenna Lemos de Aquino [email protected] Laís Lyrio Barbosa [email protected] Isabela Lyrio de Souza [email protected] Edinaldo Marinho de Carvalho [email protected] Luís Eduardo Ocáriz Brítez [email protected] Gabriela de Oliveira Gonçalves [email protected] Vinícius Bezerra Lopes [email protected] Jessyca Nauana Fernandes Silva [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Collagen prevails in connective tissues, constituting 80% of the dry weight of human skin. Aging induces a decline in enzymes involved in the post-translational processing of collagen, reducing the number of fibroblasts that synthesize collagen and the vessels that irrigate the skin. Oral ingestion of hydrolyzed collagen together with vitamins and nutrients (especially apple exosomes) increases the levels of collagenderived peptides in the bloodstream and improves skin properties. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a systematic review to elucidate the main results of clinical studies and meta-analyses of clinical studies on the effects of supplementation of types of collagen, vitamins, and nutrients for the rejuvenation of collagen fibers. <strong>Methods: </strong>The search was carried out from October to December 2023 in the Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> A total of 122 articles were found, and 12 articles were evaluated in full, and 07 were included and developed in the present systematic review study. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 20 studies with a high risk of bias and 26 studies that did not meet GRADE and AMSTAR-2. Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup>=62.4%&gt;50%. Oral nutritional supplements containing collagen peptides can reduce skin vulnerability in the elderly and thus prevent conditions such as skin lesions. The direct effects of collagen peptides on fibroblasts, M2-like macrophages, and mechanisms related to oral tolerance are the possible mechanisms for the beneficial effects of collagen supplementation.

By 2030, it is estimated that more than 60% of the world's population will be overweight or obese. The COVID19 pandemic has resulted in the worsening of obesity comorbidities. The primary increase in the inflammatory response in obese patients functions as a predictor for the hyperinflammatory state observed in COVID-19. Therefore, this primary increase can be amplified by SARS-CoV-2 infection, increasing the production of cytokines such as TNF-α, IL-1, and IL-6. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a retrospective longitudinal observational study to quantitatively analyze how cardiovascular comorbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, smoking, and compromised immunity contribute to the increased risk of life of participants affected by COVID-19. <strong>Methods:</strong> This study followed a longitudinal observational retrospective design (STROBE). A total of 45 public and official documents from Brazil (ANVISA), WHO (World Health Organization), Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), EASO (The European Association for the Study of Obesity - The European Commission/ National Information on COVID-19, Lancet Resource Centre) and scientific articles were subjected to eligibility analysis and, after that, 32 documents dated from 2019 to 2022 were selected. <strong>Results:</strong> In total, 3,993,857 participants were found from 32 documents. The highest incidence of deaths occurred in participants who were smokers, had compromised immunity, had diabetes, and were obese. The greatest risk of death was observed among participants who smoke (HR=2.5) and those with compromised immunity (HR=2.1). Despite this, other comorbidities such as diabetes, obesity, and hypertension also presented statistically significant results for the risk of life. It was observed that only the difference between the means of the comorbidities “obesity” and “diabetes” was not statistically significant, with p&lt;0.05, that is, both comorbidities have similar impacts on the worsening and death of participants in the presence of COVID-19. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> Cardiovascular comorbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, smoking, and compromised immunity contributed to the increased risk of life in participants affected by COVID-19, especially in those of an older age. The endothelial dysfunction caused by SARS-CoV-2 explains why participants with comorbidities related to blood vessels such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity are more likely to develop severe COVID-19, even death</p> 2023-12-12T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Marina Ribeiro Coutinho Teixeira de Carvalho Almeida, Caio Augusto Régis Paulo Neto de Almeida, Gabriel Augusto Régis Paulo Neto de Almeida, Aline Queiroga Estrela Maia Paiva, Carina Caroline Barbosa de Lima Fernandes, Ana Gabriela Bezerra Ribeiro Coutinho https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/334 Major approaches and clinical studies of the relationship of inflammatory bowel diseases with nutrients, gut microbiota, and exosomes/microRNAs: a systematic review 2023-11-30T03:34:02+00:00 Maria Eduarda Brianez [email protected] Bárbara Rochani Schena [email protected] Mikaell Alexandre Gouvêa Faria [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are multifactorial diseases characterized by chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Nutrients, gut microbiota, exosomes, and microRNAs play crucial roles in the pathophysiology of IBD. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a systematic review of the main approaches and clinical studies on the relationship between inflammatory bowel diseases and nutrients, intestinal microbiota, and exosomes/microRNAs. <strong>Methods:</strong> The PRISMA Platform systematic review rules were followed. The search was carried out from August to September 2023 in the Web of Science, Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> A total of 177 articles were found, and 58 articles were evaluated in full, and 30 were included and developed in the present systematic review study.

Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup>=67.7%&gt;50%. It was concluded that inflammatory bowel diseases are associated with various gastrointestinal symptoms and, therefore, affect patients' quality of life. Although intestinal bacteria and the host's immune response are considered important factors in its pathogenesis, a sufficient explanation of their role in its pathophysiological mechanism has not been presented. Exosomes and microRNAs, together with nutrients and gut microbiota, participate in the molecular interactions of inflammatory bowel diseases. Recent studies have confirmed the important role of miRNAs in targeting certain molecules in signaling pathways that regulate intestinal barrier homeostasis, inflammatory reactions, and autophagy of the intestinal epithelium. Several studies have identified specific miRNAs associated with inflammatory bowel diseases in colon tissues. The correlation between the gut microbiota and cytokines suggests that exosomes and microRNAs can modulate intestinal immunity by influencing the gut microbiota.</p> 2023-11-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Maria Eduarda Brianez, Bárbara Rochani Schena, Mikaell Alexandre Gouvêa Faria https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/332 Impact on quality of life caused by vitamin D deficiency in bariatric patients: a literature review 2023-10-26T21:09:14+00:00 Aline de Aguiar Dantas Ikoma [email protected] Luana Maciel Ramos de Andrade [email protected] Giovanna de Melo Biceglia [email protected] Maria Eduarda Banach de Sousa [email protected] Fernanda Pataro Marsola Razera [email protected] Renan Canale Peres Montanher [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Bariatric surgery is a procedure performed to control obesity and its associated morbidities. Surgeries with malabsorptive and mixed techniques cause a deficit in the absorption of micronutrients, including vitamin D. <strong>Objective:</strong> The objective of this literature review was to investigate studies that verified the impact of vitamin D deficiency on the preand postoperative quality of life of individuals undergoing bariatric surgery. <strong>Methods:</strong> The search strategy was carried out in the virtual databases PubMed, Scielo, LILACS, Scopus, Web of Science, Embase, and the Virtual Health Library, in addition to gray literature such as Google Scholar, OpenGrey, Ibict/BDTD (Brazilian digital library of theses and dissertations) and ProQuest using the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and Health Sciences Descriptors (DeCS) descriptors with Boolean logical operators (AND, OR and NOT. The studies considered potentially eligible were those that presented in the same article the levels of vitamin D in the pre and postoperative period of the individuals, as well as the effect generated on their quality of life from where the data collection and analysis of the main outcomes found were made. <strong>Results:</strong> The online search resulted in 197 studies located in the virtual bibliographic databases and 115 in the gray literature. After removing the duplicates, 235 articles remained that were read by title and abstract, and 12 articles were chosen for reading the full text, leaving 7 that met the inclusion criteria. In most of the included studies, vitamin D deficiency was higher preoperatively than postoperatively in bariatric individuals. Better levels of 25(OH)D were correlated with reduced body weight, decreased BMI, and improved glycemic profile. <strong>Conclusion: </strong>Combating obesity remains an important issue in Public Health, with bariatric surgery being a safe way to reduce overweight since vitamin D levels are lower in the postoperative period of bariatric individuals, however, it is suggested to choose the appropriate technique to maintain ideal vitamin indices.</p> 2023-10-26T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Aline de Aguiar Dantas Ikoma, Luana Maciel Ramos de Andrade, Giovanna de Melo Biceglia, Maria Eduarda Banach de Sousa, Fernanda Pataro Marsola Razera, Renan Canale Peres Montanher https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/331 Highlight the major clinical outcomes of vitamins and minerals in healthy aging: a systematic review 2023-10-23T13:44:34+00:00 José Joaquim Portilla Ramos [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> In the context of healthy longevity, aging is a natural phenomenon that promotes a senescent phenotype, with the shortening of telomeres. The main ways to increase a healthy life expectancy include lifestyle modifications and pharmacological manipulations. Vitamins, minerals (as micronutrients), essential amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), probiotics, and plant metabolites such as polyphenols and terpenoids are widely recognized for preventing aging. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a systematic review to highlight the main clinical outcomes of vitamins and minerals in healthy aging. <strong>Methods:</strong> The PRISMA Platform systematic review rules were followed. The search was carried out from August to September 2023 in the Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> A total of 122 articles were found, and 40 articles were evaluated in full and 38 were included and developed in the present systematic review study. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 25 studies with a high risk of bias and 21 studies that did not meet GRADE and AMSTAR-2. Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup>=72.4%&gt;50%. Zinc and copper govern many functions that characterize the so-called “oxy-aging”. Selenium (Se) is a fundamental cofactor in many redox functions, vitamin C's role in aging has been investigated particularly for skin health and immunity, particularly in inflammatory and degenerative diseases. Retinoids, which represent a synthetic form of vitamin A, appear effective in preventing skin degeneration due to aging. The role of vitamin E in preventing and reducing ROS-induced injuries has been well described. Supplementation with selenium and coenzyme Q10 influenced the biomarkers analyzed to indicate an anti-aging effect. It was concluded that micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals have anti-oxidant, protective, and regenerative properties to promote healthy aging.</p> 2023-10-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 José Joaquim Portilla Ramos https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/330 Effects of cannabidiol on metabolic modulation and improving sports performance: a systematic review 2023-10-17T00:42:12+00:00 Franciele da Silva Conter [email protected] Vanessa Nishi Ishikawa [email protected] Giovanna Maria Gontijo [email protected] Aline Isabela Tiemi Ichikawa [email protected] Paula Bubna [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> In the sports scenario, cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid that has been accumulating important scientific evidence in various metabolic and metabolomic effects. Δ9 tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) may be responsible for some adverse effects on sports performance and this makes cannabis unattractive for athletes. Extracellular vesicles (exosomes and microRNAs) induced by exercise emerged as potential mediators of tissue crosstalk. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a systematic review study to highlight the main outcomes of cannabidiol in metabolic modulation and microRNA signaling in increasing sports performance. <strong>Methods:</strong> The systematic review rules of the PRISMA Platform were followed. The research was carried out from March to May 2023 in Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion: </strong>A total of 127 articles were found. A total of 87 articles were evaluated in full and 62 were included and developed in this systematic review study. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 5 studies with a high risk of bias and 11 studies that did not meet GRADE. It has been shown that cannabidiol exerts some physiological, biochemical, and psychological effects with the potential to benefit athletes. For example, there is preliminary supporting evidence for the anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, analgesic, and anxiolytic actions of cannabidiol and the possibility that it may protect against gastrointestinal damage associated with inflammation and promote healing of traumatic skeletal injuries. However, it is important to recognize that these findings are very preliminary, sometimes inconsistent, and largely derived from preclinical studies. These studies are limited in their generalizability to athletes and often administer high doses of cannabidiol. The central observation is that there is a lack of studies that directly investigate cannabidiol and sports performance. Furthermore, we identified a specific repertoire of microRNAs that are regulated by cannabinoids, at rest (vigilant), and in microglia activated by lipopolysaccharides. Modulated microRNAs and their target genes are controlled by TLR, Nrf2, and Notch cross-signaling and are involved in the immune response, cell cycle regulation, as well as cellular stress and redox homeostasis.</p> 2023-10-17T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Franciele da Silva Conter, Vanessa Nishi Ishikawa, Giovanna Maria Gontijo, Aline Isabela Tiemi Ichikawa, Paula Bubna https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/328 Anais XXVII Congresso Brasileiro de Nutrologia - n. 27, v. 1, 2023 2023-10-04T22:14:09+00:00 Carlos Alberto Nogueira-de-Almeida [email protected] Durval Ribas-Filho [email protected] <p>O Congresso Nacional de Nutrologia, maior evento da área na América Latina, está na sua 27ª edição.<br>O CBN 2023 tem como missão prover articulação entre os mais renomados palestrantes nacionais e internacionais, juntamente com os profissionais da saúde - acadêmicos, médicos, nutricionistas, psicólogos - com o objetivo de transmitir conhecimento e atualização sobre os mais variados temas que envolvem nossa especialidade.<br>Nesse contexto, é de grande valia que os novos conhecimentos científicos que estão sendo gerados pela comunidade acadêmica, envolvidos pela Nutrologia em todo o país, sejam compartilhados.<br>Dessa forma, além das conferências e palestras, foram selecionados 381 trabalhos, que estão publicados nesses Anais, e 13 foram escolhidos para serem apresentados oralmente durante o evento.

Treatment options for obesity have expanded significantly and include lifestyle changes, pharmacotherapy, endoscopic bariatric therapies, and bariatric surgery. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to carry out a systematic review to present the main considerations regarding the use of the intragastric balloon as bariatric endoscopic therapy and nutritional therapy in an attempt to achieve successful weight loss in patients with obesity. <strong>Methods:</strong> The PRISMA Platform systematic review rules were followed. The search was carried out from June to August 2023 in the Web of Science, Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> 129 articles were found. A total of 34 articles were evaluated in full and 24 were included in this systematic review. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 26 studies with a high risk of bias and 12 studies that did not meet GRADE. Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup> =74.7% &gt;50%. In the challenges against super obesity and comorbidities, the use of endoscopic devices has been reported for many years, with the majority of positive results for patients. These devices are gaining increasing acceptance, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved three endoscopic devices for use. Patients should be carefully assessed nutritionally and medication-wise and advised on the most appropriate route. To promote long-term adherence, any dietary intervention must take into account patients' dietary preferences, cultural context, and food availability. Ideally, use a combination of Mediterranean and high-protein diets to promote weight loss based on the patient's preference.</p> 2023-09-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Cleanne Martins Silva, Idiberto José Zotarelli Filho https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/324 A review of the role of vitamin d in autoimmunity 2023-08-11T17:12:54+00:00 Danilo Chiaradia Finamor [email protected] Cristiane Fadel Bearzi [email protected] Giovana Marim [email protected] Fausto Rohnelt Durante [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> The main function of vitamin D is to increase the intestinal absorption of calcium, participating in the stimulation of active transport of this ion in enterocytes. Extra-renal hydroxylation of vitamin D also occurs, originating the vitamin that would act in an autocrine and paracrine manner, with functions of inhibiting cell proliferation, promoting cell differentiation, and immune regulation. <strong>Objective:</strong> It was to review the scientific literature on the role of vitamin D in autoimmunity. <strong>Methods:</strong> A search was carried out on scientific articles centered on the proposed theme: “Role of vitamin D in autoimmunity”. Several search engines that carried scientific information in the health area were used to carry out this study, such as Google Scholar and the Medical Publications database (PubMed), and Scientific Electronic Library Online (SCIELO). In collecting the information, the descriptors used to carry out this research were: vitamin D; vitamin D in preventing diseases; vitamin D and autoimmune diseases; vitamin D; autoimmune diseases. The inclusion criteria used in this study were publications of scientific articles available in full and with free electronic access, limited to a period between 2011 and 2022, and selected articles in Portuguese and English. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> Based on this methodology, it was possible to analyze a population of 58 articles that were selected for the study and constituted the sample used in this review. Several studies point to the effects of vitamin D not related to calcium metabolism, such as antineoplastic activity (particularly concerning breast, colon, and prostate cancers, and lymphoproliferative diseases), antihypertensive and immunomodulatory. Vitamin D deficiency and its use for treatment have been described in various autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, inflammatory bowel disease, myasthenia gravis, scleroderma, alopecia areata, psoriasis, vitiligo, autoimmune hepatitis, type 1 diabetes mellitus, autoimmune thyroiditis, etc. The effects of vitamin D on the immune system are related to the tolerance of self-antigens, exerting an inhibitory effect on the Th1 and Th17 type lymphocyte pattern, and a promoting effect on the expression of the Th2 and Treg pattern through the action of vitamin D in all cells of the system through the vitamin D receptor. More studies are needed to establish safe and effective doses in the management of these properties of vitamin D.</p> 2023-08-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Danilo Chiaradia Finamor, Cristiane Fadel Bearzi, Giovana Marim, Fausto Rohnelt Durante https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/323 Vitamin D deficiency and preterm birth: a comprehensive review 2023-08-10T17:58:16+00:00 Cristiane Fadel Bearzi [email protected] Danilo Chiaradia Finamor [email protected] Giovana Marim [email protected] Fausto Rohnelt Durante [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Pregnancy and its prognosis are highly influenced by maternal nutritional status before and during pregnancy. We know the importance of adequate macronutrient intake and micronutrient supplementation in the preconception period, during pregnancy and in the puerperium. <strong>Objective:</strong> This literature review aimed to study the relationship between preterm birth and hypovitaminosis D. <strong>Methods</strong>: Literature review carried out in the Google Scholar, Virtual Health Library (VHL), SciELO and PubMed databases in period of last 5 year- 2017-2022 (june). <strong>Results and</strong> <strong>Conclusion</strong>: recent evidence supports that vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of preterm birth. It is known that hypovitaminosis D during pregnancy can be a risk factor for preterm birth and all its complications for the newborn. But its isolated supplementation during pregnancy is still not a preventive action with statistically significant benefits in preterm birth. Researchers and physicians should be made aware of this issue to improve prenatal care. Strategies adopted to prevent preterm birth are scarce, and it is hoped that in the posterity the evidence mentioned in this article on the role of vitamin D may help to reduce its incidence and, consequently, mortality and, as such, improve the health of women pregnant women and their respective descendants.</p> 2023-08-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Cristiane Fadel Bearzi, Danilo Chiaradia Finamor, Giovana Marim, Fausto Rohnelt Durante https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/321 Healthy longevity: a systematic review of nutrological and lifestyle aspects 2023-08-03T12:00:07+00:00 Rodrigo Augusto Carvalho Junqueira [email protected] Alexandre Carli Pinto [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> In the context of healthy longevity, quality of life, genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors can determine the life expectancy of human beings. Nutrition is a key component affecting our health, and several studies show that nutrition also has the potential to increase lifespan. <strong>Objective: </strong>It was to carry out a systematic review of the impacts of nutrology and lifestyle on the longevity of human beings, as well as to point out the main dietary and lifestyle care based on the results of clinical studies. <strong>Methods:</strong> The systematic review rules of the PRISMA Platform were followed. The research was carried out from April to July 2023 in Scopus, PubMed, Science Direct, Scielo, and Google Scholar databases. The quality of the studies was based on the GRADE instrument and the risk of bias was analyzed according to the Cochrane instrument. <strong>Results and Conclusion:</strong> A total of 311 articles were found, and 147 articles were evaluated and 47 were included in this systematic review. Considering the Cochrane tool for risk of bias, the overall assessment resulted in 29 studies with a high risk of bias and 51 studies that did not meet GRADE. Most studies showed homogeneity in their results, with X<sup>2</sup> =87.3%&gt;50%. There is scientific evidence that nutrients and natural substances of human physiology and biochemistry such as melatonin and coenzyme Q10 control the functions of the immune system. Many metabolic or chronic diseases have been implicated with poor diet and lifestyle. Improved diet quality is associated with reduced all-cause mortality, whereas multivitamins and multimineral supplements can improve life expectancy. Overall well-being is improved when sedentary but sufficiently physically active adults reduce sedentary time and increase physical activity levels. The results of the pandemic indicate there have been a variety of lifestyle changes, physical inactivity, and psychological issues. Still, adults over 40 years old, with children, unemployed, and those living in a macroeconomic region were shown to be more exposed to unhealthy behaviors. The maintenance of dietary intervention through telemedicine can reduce the negative impact of eating habits and physical activity patterns.</p> 2023-08-03T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Rodrigo Augusto Carvalho Junqueira, Alexandre Carli Pinto https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/320 Pmma body injection and hypercalcemia correlation: a cross-sectional observational study on the comprehensive analysis of variables 2023-07-27T21:13:52+00:00 Fernanda Bortolozo [email protected] Carlos Eigi Koga [email protected] Ângela Schütz Paschoal [email protected] Mariana Rinaldi [email protected] Honório Sampaio Menezes [email protected] Ana Cecília Corcini [email protected] Priscila de Souza [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Hypercalcemia related to aesthetic intramuscular implants exclusively made of PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) is a very rare condition. Late complications of these implants are related to poorly understood inflammatory triggers, which may reactivate stabilized implants, increase calcitriol production, and lead to hypercalcemia. <strong>Methods:</strong> Records of patients seen between 2022 and 2023 with a PMMA microsphere body implant and a subsequent diagnosis of hypercalcemia were searched. Medical history, medication use, data on PMMA implantation, and laboratory tests related to calcium metabolism were described and subjected to variable correlation analysis. The instituted treatments were described. <strong>Results:</strong> A total of 17 female patients with exclusive body PMMA implants confirmed by ultrasonography or MRI (Magnetic Resonance Image) developed hypercalcemia between 2017 and 2022. Prior renal disease, COVID-19 infection, vitamin D use, and anabolic steroid use correlated with laboratory changes in hypercalcemia. Larger PMMA implant volumes led to parathyroid hormone suppression. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> Patients with PMMA body implants may rarely present with hypercalcemia when variables such as renal disease before implantation, high doses of vitamin D or anabolic steroids are present. Based on the data presented and the available scientific literature, recommendations for patient investigation, implant volume limit, and patient follow-up after the procedure were made.</p> 2023-07-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Fernanda Bortolozo, Carlos Eigi Koga, Ângela Schütz Paschoal, Mariana Rinaldi, Honório Sampaio Menezes, Ana Cecília Corcini, Priscila de Souza https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/319 Prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in patients with COVID-19 admitted to a tertiary hospital in Rio Grande do Sul 2023-07-21T21:04:46+00:00 Maria Julia de Diniz Jacob [email protected] Juliana Cardozo Fernandes [email protected] Paloma Dias da Cruz [email protected] Carolina Garcia Soares Leães Rech [email protected] <p><strong>Background: </strong>Increasing data suggests a connection between vitamin D (vitD) and COVID-19. VitD may impact COVID-19 by affecting innate cellular immunity and exacerbating cytokine storms linked to severe respiratory syndrome from the virus. <strong>Objective: </strong>To assess the prevalence of vitD deficiency in COVID-19 patients hospitalized at Hospital Ernesto Dornelles and examine its links to in-hospital mortality, the need for Intensive Care Unit (ICU), patient demographics, and hospital stay duration. <strong>Methods: </strong>A cross-sectional study was performed, in which 3518 hospitalized patients with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 were evaluated to obtain the prevalence of vitD deficiency, from March 2020 to August 2022. Data collection was performed using electronic medical records, excluding patients without serum levels of vitD measured during hospitalization, and including those with the exam in their medical records, which were later placed for statistical analysis. <strong>Results: </strong>486 patients had their serum level of vitD measured, with a mean age of 68.3 years, 57.2% female, and 42.8% male. The prevalence of vitD deficiency was 60.1% (292 patients). There was no difference between the groups with and without vitD deficiency when comparing age, gender, and comorbidities. The median length of hospital stay, the need for ICU admission, and the outcome of death were significantly higher in the group with vitD deficiency (p&lt;0.001; p=0.005; p=0.03). After adjusting for confounding factors, only the risk of ICU admission remained 1.38x higher in the group with vitD deficiency than in the group without (p=0.015), as well as age and CRF were factors with a higher risk for ICU admission. <strong>Conclusions: </strong>The prevalence of vitD deficiency in patients with COVID-19 was 60%, being associated with a higher risk of ICU admission, possibly presenting or not an association with higher mortality rates and length of stay. Therefore, further studies are needed to establish a cause-and-effect association.</p> 2024-01-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Maria Julia de Diniz Jacob, Juliana Cardozo Fernandes, Paloma Dias da Cruz, Carolina Garcia Soares Leães Rech https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/318 The use of assistance dogs in the detection of hypoglycemic episodes in type 1 diabetes: a descriptive and comprehensive review 2023-07-13T20:20:17+00:00 Anna Luiza Alves Boldrin de Siqueira [email protected] Gisleide Tristão Franco de Alcântara [email protected] Julia Maria Mendes Peloi [email protected] Guilherme Eugênio Gil [email protected] Jesselina Francisco dos Santos Haber [email protected] <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a disease of autoimmune and polygenic origin, characterized by the destruction of the beta cells of the pancreatic islets and, consequently, the absence of insulin production. The treatment aims at imitating the physiological secretion of insulin in individuals without comorbidity, using insulin therapy. Hypoglycemia is defined as any event of abnormally low blood glucose, putting the person at potential risk. Tachycardia, tremors, pallor, cold sweating, lingual paresthesia, and blurred vision, possibly leading to coma, are its main signs and symptoms. The recognition of serious clinical conditions transmitted by both visual and olfactory signals can be understood and elaborated by the dog's cognitive system, allowing the rapid detection of a hypoglycemic episode and, thus, allowing adequate conduct before a serious episode. <strong>Objective:</strong> To analyze the advances, both in studies and in professional practices, in the use of assistance dogs to identify hypoglycemia in diabetics 1, as well as to seek to understand the consequences of unidentified and untreated hypoglycemia. <strong>Methods:</strong> The most relevant studies searched using the keywords "hypoglycemia AND diabetes", in addition to "diabetes alert dogs" in Google Scholar, were analyzed, with 4 corresponding to the objectives of the current research. Finally, pathology books and official documents from the Ministry of Health and the Brazilian Society of Diabetes were used to build a theoretical explanation. <strong>Results and Discussion:</strong> Dogs are conditioned to respond with specific alert behaviors, such as barking or licking, when levels of their owner's blood sugar levels are below the ideal range, as identified by the amount of isoprene released in the individual's breath. This attitude causes the patient to measure his plasma glucose level, helping him to carry out the appropriate measures to keep the levels back to normal. The hesitation of the occurrence of hypoglycemia causes some type 1 diabetic to contain their lifestyle to try to reduce the probability of the occurrence of a hypoglycemic episode, negatively affecting their quality of life and psychological well-being. In addition, they can intentionally maintain hyperglycemia to avoid a sudden drop in glucose, however, this practice results in late problems such as nephropathy, neuropathy, and cardiopathy. Conclusions: Hypoglycemia is one of the main threats for people with diabetes, as it results in severe symptoms that can lead to coma if not treated quickly. Possibly, dogs perceive plasma glycemic variations using, in addition to the olfactory apparatus, perceptions captured through other senses, mainly vision, but the scarcity of studies carried out with dogs trained to support people with diabetes problems, mainly in Brazil, makes the efficiency of these animals to detect alterations of glucose in the blood remains debatable.</p> 2023-07-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Anna Luiza Alves Boldrin de Siqueira, Gisleide Tristão Franco de Alcântara, Julia Maria Mendes Peloi, Guilherme Eugênio Gil, Jesselina Francisco dos Santos Haber https://ijn.zotarellifilhoscientificworks.com/index.php/ijn/article/view/315 Colostro bovino e suas aplicações na saúde humana: uma revisão narrativa 2023-07-10T21:49:50+00:00 Carlos Alberto Nogueira-de-Almeida [email protected] <p><strong>Introdução</strong>: o colostro bovino é a secreção produzida pela glândula mamária da vaca nos primeiros dias após o parto. Trata-se de um alimento rico em proteínas, lipídios, além de enzimas, vitaminas, minerais, fatores de crescimento, oligossacarídeos, nucleotídeos e citocinas. <strong>Objetivo:</strong> Foi revisar a literatura em relação aos benefícios do consumo de colostro bovino para a saúde humana. <strong>Métodos</strong>: Revisão narrativa, conduzida por meio de busca nas bases de dados Pubmed, Medline, Scielo, Cochrane, Lilacs e Crossref, usando como palavra-chave “colostro bovino”. <strong>Resultados</strong>: foram encontrados estudos que envolvem potenciais benefícios para imunidade, desempenhos físico e muscular e saúde gastrointestinal. <strong>Conclusão</strong>: O colostro bovino é um produto alimentar e nutricional. Seu uso pode ser feito diretamente como alimento ou como componente de alguns alimentos, mas, atualmente, tem sido mais utilizado como suplemento. Os conhecimentos científicos relativos à segurança de uso e também aos benefícios à saúde de seus componentes, individuais ou associados, têm se acumulado nos últimos anos, permitindo graus crescentes de evidências que podem embasar sua utilização clínica.</p> 2023-07-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Carlos Alberto Nogueira-de-Almeida
