EPIGENETICS: NATURE VIA NURTURE

Featured

Science has historically been riddled with the nature vs nurture conundrum as it relates to human development. Perhaps this riddle has been solved with the emergence of the field of epigenetics. Epigenetics suggests that it is not nature vs nurture but rather nature via nurture that shapes human development.

Epigenetics recognizes that we all are born with a heritable genetic “blue print” that predisposes our development. Like father, like son; like mother, like daughter.  Developmental conditions like height and weight are more heritable then almost any other human condition studied. However, some of these inherited genes (nature) are malleable by outside influences (nurture) that can shape or reshape these predisposition potentials and affect our development.

Having tall parentage would likely predispose for tallness. But that predisposition potential cannot be realized unless weight baring activity and optimal nutrition (calcium, protein, Vitamin D etc.) is available. Continue reading

Avoidance Syndrome and  Dysregulated Eating Behaviors 

Featured

Bariatric clinicians at The American Association of Bariatric Counselors have identified a frequently undiagnosed shame based dysfunctional psychological disorder that is pervasive amongst many obese patients that can help explain relapses: AVOIDANT PERSONALITY DISORDER DSM-5 30

As the diagnosis suggests, the main coping mechanism of those with avoidant personality disorder is avoidance. This chronic disorder is so deeply rooted, that shame riddled obese patients will avoid the pain of confronting anything that conjures up their obesity shame.

Feelings of shame triggers avoidant behaviors; interruption of self-monitoring, scale use, exercise, mindful eating, weight gain and especially not keeping appointments at your office/clinic This can explain how a minor weight gain can become a full blown relapse.

How Avoidant Personality Disorder Leads To Avoidance Syndrome and  Dysregulated Eating Behaviors

The best way we can explain how the Avoidance Syndrome leads to dysregulated eating behaviors and weight gain is by telling by a real story. There are many ways that this story can begin but this is the version that most patients identify with and how the story was told to me by a patient.

Metabolic Obesity vs Hedonic Obesity

Featured

 

Some years ago Connecticut College undergrad students and a professor of psychology found that “America’s favorite cookie” is just as addictive as cocaine – at least for lab rats. And just like most humans, rats go for the middle first. (See video above)

Their study found that that Oreos caused a higher level of activation than cocaine or morphine in the same brain pathways related to drug addiction. This supports the hypothesis that processed foods like Oreos that synthesize flour, sugar and fat are contributors to the obesity pandemic and comparable to drug addiction. Continue reading

Does Obesity cause Diabetes, or does Diabetes cause Obesity?

Featured

Even those of us in the bariatric science community can become prejudice to the familiar and can and be blinded by the science of public consensus.

Perhaps it is because we often recognize overweight/ obesity prior to a diagnosis of type II diabetes that we leap to a cause and effect relationship and thus conclude that obesity causes diabetes?  Maybe we are wrong. What we know now about Type 2 Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome is that insulin resistance prevents glucose from entering our cells and results in elevated blood glucose. The elevated glucose is then converted in fatty acids and with the aid of insulin gets stored as fat in adipose tissue, resulting in obesity. Continue reading

Asprosin hormone: Extreme Thinness Hormone May Prevent Obesity and Diabetes

Asprosin hormone the Thin Gene

The gut and brain have a multitude of very powerful chemical messengers that regulates eating behavior and weight.

In recent years bariatric scientists have been able to finally identify some of the messengers that can start and stop a meal. Being able mediate these messengers may offer the “the silver bullet” cure for diabesity treatment.

Current science thinking is that these gut brain cross-talking chemical messengers may be very different between the thin and thick. Continue reading
