CONCLUSIONS: A notable proportion (34%) of individuals diagnosed with MDD in late-life require secondary psychiatric treatment for extended time periods. We did not find evidence that vascular pathology predicts hospital contact trajectories in secondary-treated late-life MDD. PMID: 28807498 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to evaluate heart rate recovery (HRR) indices and exercise test parameters after CAS. Methods Patients (10 male, 11 female) suitable for CAS, without a history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, severe coronary artery or valvular heart disease, were enrolled in our study. Basal electrocardiography, echocardiography, and treadmill exercise testing were performed in all patients pre- and post-procedure. The HRR index was defined as the reduction in the heart rate from the rate at peak exercise to the rate first minute (HRR1), second minute (HRR2), third minute (HRR3) and fifth minute (HRR5) after the cessat...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a complex metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycaemia and insulin resistance. Diabetes mellitus is well-established as a major risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD). A collaborative meta-analysis of 102 prospective studies revealed that people with diabetes are exposed to two-fold excess risk for coronary heart disease and stroke after adjustment for lipid profiles and inflammatory markers [1]. Moreover, prevention of cardiovascular complications is regularly integrated in the regime of medical care in diabetic patients, as these patients have a similar ri...

“It is natural to ask whether rising gaps in income might be associated with widening gaps in health and longevity between rich and poor Americans,” Jacob Bor and colleagues noted in an article in The Lancet this spring. This association is bidirectional: If someone is poor, they have a greater likelihood of having chronic illnesses such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease and associated complications. Illness also restricts financial security, especially within communities of color. The June issue of Health Affairs, Pursuing Health Equity, draws much needed attention to the need to pursue solutions that add...

Publication date: October 2017 Source:Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, Volume 94 Author(s): Almottesembellah Gaiz, Sapha Mosawy, Natalie Colson, Indu Singh One of the most commonly identified chronic illnesses in many countries is type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). T2DM denotes an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Heart disease is one of the causes of mortality in patients with diabetes, mainly due to the macrovascular complications. One of these macrovascular complications in diabetes is atherosclerosis, which involves a complicated pathophysiological process. Besides hyperglycemia, oxidative stre...

CONCLUSIONS: The ODMDC trial will have implications for nutrition policy in regard to weight control and related cardiometabolic disturbances among otherwise healthy non-obese Chinese. PMID: 28802307 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Although concerns regarding the influence of coffee consumption on human health have accompanied the massive increase in coffee consumption, the effects of coffee intake on the risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) remain controversial. Therefore, we evaluated the association between coffee consumption and CHD risk as estimated using the Framingham risk model in Korean adults. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: This cross-sectional study involved 3,987 participants aged 30-74 years who participated in the fifth Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey conducted in 2010...

Purpose of review: It is widely accepted that sugar sweetened beverages (SSB) are implicated in weight gain and adverse cardiometabolic heath. To make informed recommendations about SSB, new evidence needs to be considered against existing literature. The present review will provide an update on the epidemiological and trial evidence linking intake of SSB to cardiometabolic outcomes. Recent findings: The weight of the evidence from prospective cohort studies supports a strong positive association between intake of SSB and weight gain and risk type 2 diabetes (T2D) and coronary heart disease (CHD) that is independent of ad...

Purpose of review: To provide an update on the management of patients with diabetes mellitus and requiring coronary revascularization. Recent findings: Evidence continues to show that patients with diabetes mellitus and ischemic heart disease represent a very high-risk group of patients. Choice of stent appears important for minimizing target lesion and target vessel adverse events with everolimus eluting stents having the best performance, particularly in patients being treated with insulin. The higher risk of adverse angioplasty results in patients with diabetes appears most related to the disease state per se and not n...

Conclusion This large, valuable study confirms that – as has long been thought – an increased BMI is linked with an increased risk of heart disease. It shows that people with an obese BMI had a higher risk of heart disease, even if they didn't have other risk factors like high cholesterol and high blood pressure, proving that body fat is an independent risk factor. That said, this study does have some limitations. For example, definitions of being metabolically unhealthy aren't entirely consistent with other definitions of metabolic syndrome. This was also only assessed at the start of the study, and risk fac...
