BACKGROUND: Increasing age predicts ominous prognosis in heart failure. Age influences the success of therapeutic approaches and interacts with other prognostic predictors. We aimed to study the impact of age in long-term survival in different age strata. METHODS: Patients were prospectively included in an acute heart failure registry; those with acute coronary syndromes and those with primary valvular disease were excluded. Outcome studied was all-cause mortality...

BACKGROUND: Metabolic syndrome (Met-S) has a robust concurrent association with depression. A small, methodologically limited literature suggests that Met-S and depression are reciprocally related over time, an association that could contribute to their overlapping influences on morbidity and mortality in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. PURPOSE: Using a refined approach to the measurement of Met-S as a continuous latent variable comprising continuous components, this study tested the prospective associations between Met-S and depression...

Accumulation of visceral fat leads to metabolic syndrome and increases risks of cerebro-cardiovascular diseases, which should be recognized and improved at the early stage in general population. Accurate measurement of visceral fat area (VFA) is commonly performed by the abdominal cross-sectional image measured by computed tomography scan, which is, however, limited due to the radiation exposure. The bioelectrical impedance analysis (OMRON, HDS-2000 DUALSCAN(R)) has been recently developed to measure VFA, which is more easily accessible modality...

INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) ranges from <10% to as much as 84% depending on region and composition of the population studied. The MetS is a growing public health problem in the world. AIM: To evaluate association of hyperuricaemia with components of MetS and insulin resistance. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty patients with MetS were conveniently recruited. MetS was defined as per Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP III) guidelines...

Background: Metabolic syndrome is pandemic; however, the cut-off values for waist circumference (WC) vary widely depending on the ethnic groups studied and the criteria applied for WC measurement. Previous studies for defining optimal WC cut-off points included high-income and urban settings, and did not cover low-income, rural settings, especially for ethnic minorities. This study aimed at defining optimal ethnic-specific WC cut-off points in a low-income, rural population comprising the largest inhabitant minority group residing in far Western China...

OBJECTIVE: The potential of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) to facilitate cholesterol removal from arterial foam cells is a key function of HDL. We studied whether cholesterol efflux to serum and HDL subfractions is impaired in subjects with early coronary heart disease (CHD) or metabolic syndrome (MetS) in families where a low HDL-cholesterol level (HDL-C) predisposes to early CHD. METHODS: HDL subfractions were isolated from plasma by sequential ultracentrifugation...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have assessed the associations between hyperuricemia and lifestyle-related diseases after adjusting for waist circumference (WC) and sex. METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 33,498 Japanese individuals, and was conducted at the Center for Preventive Medicine, NTT Kanto Medical Center, Tokyo, from May 2006 to March 2015. Hyperuricemia was defined as a uric acid level of >7 mg/dl in men; >6 mg/dl in women. Metabolic syndrome (Mets) components were defined using the Japanese criteria for Mets...

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a multisystem disease that can involve the human eyes. Using ophthalmic examination records from January 2006 to November 2015, we retrospectively reviewed all patients who were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in our hospital. The study was performed at a tertiary referral center in southern Taiwan. Data included age, gender, ophthalmic examinations, systemic conditions, CD4 cell counts, course, and treatment. Eleven patients were identified as having AIDS with uveitis as their presenting manifestation...

BACKGROUND: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a worldwide health problem, which is growing in Iranian adults. MetS is associated with risk of type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease (CAD). In this study, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of MetS and its individual components in CAD patients. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was performed on 200 CAD patients who had undergone elective coronary angiography at the cardiology department. Anthropometric indices including waist circumference (WC) and body mass index were measured...

Importance: Coronary artery calcium (CAC) is associated with coronary heart disease (CHD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD); however, prognostic data on CAC are limited in younger adults. Objective: To determine if CAC in adults aged 32 to 46 years is associated with incident clinical CHD, CVD, and all-cause mortality during 12.5 years of follow-up. Design, Setting, and Participants: The Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Study is a prospective community-based study that recruited 5115 black and white participants aged 18 to 30 years from March 25, 1985, to June 7, 1986...

BACKGROUND: Diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-D) is a functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder, which occurs more frequently in women than men. The aim of our study was to determine the role of activation of classical estrogen receptors (ER) and novel membrane receptor, G protein-coupled estrogen receptor (GPER) in human and mouse tissue and to assess the possible cross talk between these receptors in the GI tract. METHODS: Immunohistochemistry was used to determine the expression of GPER in human and mouse intestines...

BACKGROUND: There are very limited data for Iranian populations on the predisposing genetic factors for acute coronary syndrome (ACS). OBJECTIVES: The objective of the present study was to investigate the association of the angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) gene polymorphism and ACS in an Iranian population. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted among 263 subjects (97 men and 166 women). Patients (n = 128) aged 30 - 80 years with chest pain were recruited from the emergency department of Ghaem Hospital (Mashhad, Iran)...

Oncocytic variant of medullary thyroid carcinoma (OV-MTC) is a very unusual entity, up to date only 17 cases have been reported in the literature. MTC is a neuro-endocrine malignancy arising from the para-follicular C cells of the thyroid gland. It generally has a slight female predominance and appears as a single lesion. However in the Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome 2, linked to the point mutation of RET oncogene, multifocal MTCs may also occur. Herein, we report the case of a 75 years old man with a rare form of sporadic multifocal and bilateral OV-MTC expressing wild-type RET gene...

AIM: Metabolic syndrome and chronic conditions are significant predictors of cognition; however, few studies have examined how they work together in predicting cognition in old age. Therefore, the present study examines whether a chronic condition mediates the association between metabolic syndrome and cognition. In addition, it discusses the moderating role of sex in the relationships between metabolic syndrome, chronic conditions and cognition. METHODS: Secondary analysis was carried out of data from the Malaysian national survey that involved 2322 community residents aged 60 years or older in Peninsular Malaysia...

Metabolic health is a cause for concern among those living with HIV, especially those on antiretroviral therapy. Physical activity (PA) is known to benefit metabolic health, however, few studies have objectively measured PA or investigated the relationship between PA and metabolic health among those living with HIV. In this study, PA and indices of metabolic health among twenty men living with HIV and twenty age matched HIV-negative men were measured. PA was measured using Actigraph accelerometers. Components of the metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance were measured using routine laboratory methods...

In Reunion Island, alcohol is the most tried out psychoactive substance. To our knowledge, few indicators measuring the health burden of alcohol use exist on the island. In this context, an exploratory analysis based on syndromic surveillance data was implemented in order to describe the emergency department (ED) visits for alcohol intoxication (AI) and factors associated with their variations.An analysis of anonymized records routinely collected by the syndromic surveillance system was carried out. A daily indicator of ED visits for AI was built from a selection of ICD-10 codes between 2010 and 2012...
