regulation of energy metabolism and insulin action. Disruption of normal hepatic metabolism is associated with excess accumulation of tissue lipid content and is linked to insulin resistance and the metabolic syndrome ( Birkenfeld & Shulman 2014 ). Therefore

findings imply a close relationship between eating habits, food texture, and obesity or obesity-related diseases. Dietary factors such as food texture are thought to affect feeding behavior and energy metabolism. Oka et al . (2003) demonstrated that rats

-described effects of BAs in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, we hypothesized that central effects of BA contribute to the regulation of energy metabolism. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to determine the effects of central bile acid signaling on

The action of different steroid hormones on the oxygen consumption of adrenal cortex slices in vitro was investigated.

Deoxycorticosterone (DOC), testosterone and dehydroisoandrosterone, and 17-hydroxycorticosterone, were found to stimulate the oxygen uptake rate, while cortisone, progesterone, pregnenolone, androsterone and cholesterol were inactive.

Pretreatment of the slices with DOC, testosterone or ACTH inhibited the action of ACTH or DOC added subsequently.

The significance of the direct action of different steroid hormones on the energy metabolism of the adrenal cortex is discussed.

Parity and the development of diabetes


The subject of pregnancy and diabetes can be considered from two main points of view: that of the baby and that of the mother.

There is no doubt that the children born to diabetic mothers (both before and after the development of clinical diabetes) commonly exceed the mean body weight for their gestational age, have a characteristic appearance,
