Metabolomic Profiling of Long-Term Weight Change: Role of Oxidative Stress and Urate Levels in Weight Gain

Menni et al. Obesity 2017;25(9):1618–24

This paper investigates the association between long‐term weight change and blood metabolites.

Thirty metabolites were significantly associated with change in BMI per year in TwinsUK using Bonferroni correction. Metabolites linked to higher oxidative stress were concluded to associate with increased long‐term weight gain.
