English to Portuguese: The Influence of a Meal Replacement Formula on Leptin Regulation in Obese Adults
General field: Medical
Detailed field: Nutrition
Source text - English
Obesity levels have dramatically increased in the United States (US) and in the majority of European countries during the past few decades [1-3]. A study in 2001 [4] revealed increases in obesity among US adults for both sexes and across all ages, ethnic backgrounds, educational levels and smoking levels. A chronic imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure appears to play a role in the development of obesity [5, 6]. Serum leptin levels may have a potential role in the prediction of weight loss and weight-loss maintenance [7]. Serum leptin levels may influence weight loss and weight-loss maintenance through lifestyle changes in overweight adults [8, 9]. Leptin, as a circulating adipokine, is a regulatory factor for food intake, energy expenditure and body fat distribution. Leptin also participates in a signalling system regulating the amount of adipose energy stored in the brain [5]. In addition, leptin resistance may be responsible, in part, for the development of obesity among the aging population [10].

Os índices de obesidade aumentaram de forma dramática nos Estados Unidos (EUA) e na maioria dos países europeus nas últimas décadas [1-3]. Um estudo realizado em 2001 [4] revelou o aumento da obesidade entre americanos adultos de ambos os gêneros e de todas as faixas etárias, origens étnicas, níveis de escolaridade e níveis de tabagismo. O desequilíbrio crônico entre o aporte calórico e o gasto energético parece contribuir para desenvolvimento da obesidade [5, 6]. Os níveis de leptina sérica podem ter um papel potencial no prognóstico de perda de peso e de manutenção da perda de peso [7]. Os níveis de leptina sérica podem influenciar a perda de peso e a manutenção da perda de peso por meio de mudanças no estilo de vida em adultos com sobrepeso [8, 9]. A leptina, uma adipocina circulante, é um fator regulatório de ingestão de alimentos, gasto energético e distribuição de gordura corporal. A leptina também participa de um sistema de sinalização, regulando o volume de energia adiposa armazenada no cérebro [5]. Além disso, a resistência à leptina pode ser, em parte, responsável pelo desenvolvimento da obesidade na população de idade avançada [10].
