PRIMO, David et al. Effect of a Mediterranean-pattern diet on the metabolic response secondary to weight loss; role of the single nucleotide polymorphism (rs16147) of neuropeptide Y. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2020, vol.37, n.4, pp.742-749.  Epub 14-Dez-2020. ISSN 1699-5198.

Background and aims:

intervention studies that evaluate the effect of rs16147 on metabolic response and weight change after dietary intervention are scarce. We propose to evaluate the role of the rs16147 genetic variant in the metabolic effects produced by a hypocaloric Mediterranean-pattern diet with high content of omega-9.

Material and methods:

a sample of 363 obese subjects was recruited. At the baseline visit the patients were randomly assigned to one of two hypocaloric diets for 12 weeks (diet M, Mediterranean pattern; diet C, standard hypocaloric). All patients, at baseline and at 12 weeks, had biochemical and anthropometric variables measured, and genotyping performed for the rs16147 variant.


in all subjects, and with both diets, the parameters of adiposity, blood pressure, and circulating leptin improved. In obese subjects with allele (A) insulin levels (GG vs. GA + AA) (-0.9 ± 1.1 IU/L vs. -4.4 ± 1.0 IU/L; p = 0.01) and HOMA-IR (-0.3 ± 0.1 units vs. -1.2 ± 0.3 units; p = 0.02) decreased significantly with diet M. Subjects carrying the minor allele showed a significant decrease in basal insulin levels (GG vs. GA + AA) (0.7 ± 0.3 IU/L vs. -2.2 ± 0.9 IU/L: p = 0.02) and HOMA-IR (-0.3 ± 0.2 units vs. -0.7 ± 0.1 units: p = 0.01) after diet C. This decrease in circulating insulin and HOMA-IR levels in patients with allele A was significantly higher with diet M than with diet C.


the A allele of the rs16147 variant produces a better metabolic response in terms of insulin resistance and basal insulin secondary to weight loss with two different hypocaloric diets in obese subjects, with improvement being higher with the Mediterranean diet.
