BACKGROUND: Fasting during the month of Ramadan is practiced by over 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide. It remains unclear, however, how this change in lifestyle affects heart failure, a condition that has reached epidemic dimensions. This study examined the effects of fasting in patients with acute heart failure (AHF) using data from a large multi-center heart failure registry. METHODS AND RESULTS: Data were derived from Gulf CARE (Gulf aCute heArt failuRe rEgistry), a prospective multi-center study of consecutive patients hospitalized with AHF during February-November 2012...

BACKGROUND: A U-shaped relationship has been reported between BMI and cardiovascular events among patients with acute heart failure (AHF). We hypothesized that an obesity paradox also governs the relationship between BMI and mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and AHF.

We assessed the frequency and implications of a history of syncope of up to 1 year prior to hospitalization with acute heart failure (AHF) between February and November 2012. Data were collected for 5005 patients hospitalized with AHF and analyzed and compared according to the absence/presence of a history of syncope (group 1 vs group 2). Prior syncope among patients with heart failure was 5.3%. Age, gender, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, bundle branch block, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), and obstructed coronary vessels were comparable in the 2 groups...
