Background: Metabolic syndrome (Met-S) and Locomotive syndrome (Loc-S) have been in focus for years. Authors have reduced weight of patients with Met-S and Loc-S by exercise and Low Carbohydrate Diet (LCD). Moreover, we continued clinical research and enlightening activity about LCD through Japan LCD Promoting Association (JLCDPA).
Intervention Program: Enrolled subjects were obese patients with 715 men and 2058 women with 62.2 ± 12.1 years. They attended the intervention of weight reduction program by LCD and exercise. The advisers were registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) and physical/exercise therapists, and they regularly interviewed the cases for 6-12 months. LCD included 33% of carbohydrate, and exercise included aerobic and anaerobic exercises with 10 kinds of machines.
Results and Discussion: The pre-weight vs post-weight is 63.7 ± 11.6 kg vs 59.4±10.8 kg in average, and 61.8 kg vs 57.5 kg in median. Further, quartiles values on 25%-75% were 55.5 kg-69.9 kg vs 51.5 kg-65.3 kg, respectively. The weight reduction was 6.6% in average, and 2.6%-9.8% in quartiles 25%-75%. The distribution shape of both pre- and post-weight in the figure showed slight shift to left direction by 4.3 kg in average. These results suggest that combined therapy would be successful in the presence of advisers, and that data would become basal data for future research.
