A time for food: Improving glycaemic control in individuals with Type 2 Diabetes through time-restricted eating.

Dr Brooke Devlin

Erratic eating patterns, minimal fasting and poor-quality diets disrupt circadian rhythms and are a major contributing factor of chronic diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2D). Evidence is growing to support the effectiveness of diet interventions that focus on timing of dietary intake (i.e., chrono-nutrition) for weight loss and metabolic health outcomes. This can be achieved through time-restricted eating (TRE) which is becoming an increasingly popular dietary strategy in practice. This seminar will introduce the concept of chrono-nutrition and present recent work investigating the impact of adjusting timing of eating via TRE on metabolic health and well-being of individuals diagnosed with and at risk of T2D

Is exercise for the heart also good for the brain? Influence of exercise training on cerebral blood flow regulation and cognitive function in patientes with cardiovascular disease.

Dr Jenna Taylor

Patients with cardiovascular disease are at higher risk of cognitive decline, which is accelerated after a cardiac event. Cerebral hypoperfusion appears to be a significant contributor to cognitive decline, which can occur from vascular dysfunction. In contrast, higher cardiorespiratory fitness shows protection against cognitive decline. This seminar will outline the links between cardiovascular dysfunction, cerebral blood flow, and cognitive function, and how exercise training may help to mitigate cognitive decline in patients with cardiovascular disease.
