Thesis
GRYKA, A. 2011. Alterations in the macronutrient content of the diet and the effects on body composition, cardiovascular disease risk and the control of energy metabolism in obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Several studies have shown that a low-carbohydrate diet (LCHOD) can improve glycaemic control in people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). The objective of the current study was to compare two ways of administration of a LCHOD - self-prepared mea...

Adipose tissue functions as an endocrine organ by releasing adipokines, which have important roles in the regulation of inflammation and insulin sensitivity. Although there is evidence of improvements in the circulating levels of adipokines with weig... Read More about Effect of weight loss on adipokine levels in obese patients..

Global warming: is weight loss a solution? (2011)
Journal Article
GRYKA, A., BROOM, J., and ROLLAND, C. 2012. Global warming: is weight loss a solution? International journal of obesity [online], 36(3), pages 474-476. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1038/ijo.2011.151

The current climate change has been most likely caused by the increased greenhouse gas emissions. We have looked at the major greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide (CO2), and estimated the reduction in the CO2 emissions that would occur with the theoretical...
