More than two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese, with many attempting to lose weight to avoid adverse health outcomes and improve well-being. Achieving long-term weight loss (LTWL) success, defined as reaching at least a 5% to 10% weight loss goal, is challenging, yet important for overall metabolic health. It is currently unclear whether achieving higher thresholds of LTWL is associated with improved health. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the association between LTWL thresholds (5%-9...

Hereditary amyloidosis represents a group of diseases in which mutant proteins are deposited in various organs leading to their dysfunction. Correct identification of the amyloid-causing protein is critical because this will determine the optimal therapy for the patient. The most common type of hereditary amyloidosis is due to mutant transthyretin (ATTRm) deposition and often presents with heart failure or peripheral neuropathy. We report the first known case of a patient who had amyloidosis both due to a mutant transthyretin (p...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the readmission rate in patients with acute heart failure (AHF) discharged against medical advice (AMA). METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis using the 2014 National Readmission Database. Patients admitted with a primary diagnosis of AHF were selected. Only those discharged to home and who left AMA were included in the study. The primary outcome was 30-day readmission. We compared the readmission rates among those discharged AMA vs routinely discharged patients using propensity score matching (PSM) to address imbalance in variables between the 2 groups...
