CONCLUSION: Older adults with non-communicable diseases have high prevalence of cognitive impairment. Physicians should make the patients and their family members aware about the association of non-communicable diseases with cognitive impairments and should encourage these persons to use remedial measures to reduce the risk of future development of dementia.

Resumo Analisaram-se os registros eletr ônicos da atenção primária em saúde na cidade do Rio de Janeiro para duas doenças crônicas: hipertensão e diabetes, em um estudo de base populacional, com desenho epidemiológico transversal que considerou a população carioca que possuía “ Equipes de Sa úde da Família ” . O c álculo da taxa de prevalência foi estratificado por sexo e faixa etária, e a condição da doença foi mensurada pelos médicos de família nas consultas re...

A friend of mine takes a statin medication each day to lower his cholesterol. More than once I’ve heard him say “I ate too much! I’m going to have to take an extra pill.” Never mind that it doesn’t work that way — a single additional statin pill won’t make much difference to his cholesterol or his health. And never mind that you shouldn’t self-adjust the dose of your medications (talk to your doctor before making any changes in medication dosing). But my friend’s overindulging does bring up the question of whether starting medications for conditions like high blood pres...

CONCLUSIONS These results indicate that GDLP against T2DM-induced hepatic steatosis, oxidative stress, and inflammation by improving the Nrf2/HO-1 signaling pathway in db/db mice, suggesting the GDLP may serve as an effective strategy for in fatty liver treatment.

A 77-year-old woman presented with positive fecal occult blood test. Her medical history included non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and spinal cord injury with myelopathy. Physical examination revealed no abdominal distention, local tenderness, or rebounding pain. Patient's cell blood count showed neither leukocytosis nor anemia. Colonoscopy revealed multiple variably sized submucosal cysts from the descending to the ascending colon (Fig. 1A). When they were biopsied after having filled the colon with water, air bubbles leaked through the biopsy orifice (Fig.

ConclusionsOur study demonstrated that hypertension did not independently influence the 24-h urine composition in adults without urolithiasis in China; however, we cannot make such an arbitrary conclusion that hypertension was not a risk factor for urolithiasis.

AbstractMany crucial cardiovascular adaptations occur in the body during pregnancy to ensure successful gestation. Maladaptation of the cardiovascular system during pregnancy can lead to complications that promote cardiac dysfunction and may lead to heart failure (HF). About 12% of pregnancy-related deaths in the USA have been attributed to HF and the detrimental effects of cardiovascular complications on the heart can be long-lasting, pre-disposing the mother to HF later in life. Indeed, cardiovascular complications such as gestational diabetes mellitus, preeclampsia, gestational hypertension, and peripartum cardiomyopath...

AbstractVortex formation time (VFT) is a dimensionless index used to quantify duration of vortex ring formation during diastole. We sought to investigate the effect of pharmaceutical stress on VFT in patients evaluated for ischemia. For this purpose, a standard dobutamine stress echo (DSE) protocol was performed in 50 consecutive patients, and VFT was calculated at rest and at peak. VFT was calculated from echocardiography measurements using a previously developed mathematical equation. VFTi was calculated as the percentage of change of VFTpeak, compared with VFTrest. Mean VFTrest was 2.46 (0.73) and mean VFTpeak 1.67 (0.5...

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...
