BACKGROUND: Multimorbidity is increasingly common and is associated with adverse health outcomes, highlighting the need to broaden the single-disease framework that dominates medical research. We examined the role of midlife clinical characteristics, socioeconomic position, and behavioural factors in the development of cardiometabolic multimorbidity (at least 2 of diabetes, coronary heart disease, and stroke), along with how these factors modify risk of mortality. METHODS AND FINDINGS: Data on 8,270 men and women were drawn from the Whitehall II cohort study, with mean follow-up of 23...

The article focuses on current aspects of epidemiology, clinical picture, and diagnostics of patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) associated with preserved left ventricular (LV) systolic function. Heart failure with preserved LV ejection fraction (HFpEF) is shown to be prevalent in a population that accounts for more than a half of all CHF cases. The group at risk for HFpEF consists primarily of older women with arterial hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, and atrial fibrillation. The article presents algorithms for diagnosis of HFpEF based on classic and tissue Doppler echocardiography and measurement of natriuretic peptides...

Intestinal spirochetosis (IS) is an infestation defined by the presence of spirochetes on the surface of the colonic mucosa. The implicated organisms can be Brachyspira aalborgi or Brachyspira pilosicoli . We present the case of a 66-year-old man with a past medical history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, morbid obesity, and gastroesophageal reflux. The patient was sent to the gastroenterology clinic for a screening colonoscopy due to a prior history of colonic polyps. The patient was completely asymptomatic as he denies any abdominal pain, diarrhea, melena, or hematochezia...

Vitamin D deficiency is common in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Vitamin D status may have a causal role in the onset of T2DM and may influence glycaemic control in these patients. However, data on vitamin D status among Bangladeshi T2DM patients are scarce. The present cross-sectional study was done among newly diagnosed 50 T2DM patients attending outpatient department of Comilla Diabetic Hospital, Bangladesh to address this lacuna. Serum 25(OH)D was measured in all and classified as normal (≥30ng/mL), insufficient (>20 to 29...
