Effects of electroacupuncture stimulation at different spinal segmental levels in a rat model of diabetes mellitus.

CONCLUSION: EA at Weiwanxiashu and BL15 had differential effects on metabolic markers in the STZ-induced rat model of DM. These effects may be explained neuroanatomically by variations in the segmental innervation of the tissues at these locations. PMID: 28751464 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

There is a growing burden of cardiovascular diseases, given the rising prevalence and incidence of risk factors such as an aging population, abdominal obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidaemia and metabolic syndrome. Primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases is therefore highly relevant for clinicians and government policy makers. Currently, several robust cardiovascular risk assessment tools have been devised using large datasets from Western populations. The American Heart Association (AHA)/American College of Cardiology (ACC) widened their indications for statin prescription [1], whereas the European S...

CONCLUSIONS: Prescribing low-dose statins for primary prevention of CVD is beneficial in patients at high risk and may be detrimental in patients at low CV risk. In patients with intermediate CV risk, our data support current recommendations of individualizing treatment decisions. PMID: 30084572 [PubMed - in process]
