The objective of present paper was to review the therapeutic options for metabolic syndrome and its components, the available evidence related to their cardiovascular benefits, and to evaluate the extent to which they should influence the guidelines for clinical practice. Areas covered: A Medline literature search was performed to identify clinical trials and meta-analyses related to the therapy of dyslipidemia, arterial hypertension, glucose metabolism and obesity published in the past decade. Expert commentary: Our recommendation for first-line pharmacological are statins for dyslipidemia, renin-angiotensin-aldosteron sy...

AbstractHydrogen sulfide (H2S) is involved in diverse physiological functions, such as anti-hypertension, anti-proliferation, regulating ATP synthesis, and reactive oxygen species production. Sirtuin 3 (SIRT3) is a NAD+-dependent deacetylase that regulates mitochondrial energy metabolism. The role of H2S in energy metabolism in diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) may be related to regulate SIRT3 expression; however, this role remains to be elucidated. We hypothesized that exogenous H2S could switch cardiac energy metabolic substrate preference by lysine acetylation through promoting the expression of SIRT3 in cardiac tissue of d...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWe sought to review currently available data on the safety and efficacy of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with hypertension.Recent FindingsInhibition of SGLT2 in the renal proximal tubule results in increased urinary glucose excretion and modest improvements of hemoglobin A1C. Treatment with any of the three currently FDA-approved SGLT2 inhibitors (canagliflozin, dapagliflozin, empagliflozin) results in sustained systolic and diastolic blood pressure reduction, in part via minimal natriuresis and possible reductions in sympathetic tone. Recent...

Summary Anthropometric measures are simple, inexpensive, noninvasive tools to assess the risk of morbidity and mortality. This systematic review assessed the performance of A Body Shape Index (ABSI) in predicting hypertension, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and all‐cause mortality and compared the differential predictability between ABSI and two other common anthropometric measures – body mass index and waist circumference. A keyword and reference search were conducted in the PubMed and Web of Science for articles published until 1 November 2017. Thirty‐eight studies were included in the review, includin...

hi folks. had a patient with gestational hypertension (no evidence of proteinuria) who had Mg running as per OB service. pt was brought to the OR for fetal intolerance/decels. spinal was placed and by this time i had stopped the Mg infusion since i didn't think pt had preeclampsia and there was no need for seizure prophylaxis. anyways the OB was not happy i had stopped the infusion and told me that the patient was still high risk for seizures. i know this is true for pre-eclamptics but...

AbstractAccelerated coronary atherosclerosis is common in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). To examine coronary artery calcification (CAC) frequency and severity, its correlation with traditional risk factors (TRF) of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and inflammatory markers in patients with early RA prior to anti-rheumatic therapy. RA adult patients (ACR/EULAR criteria, 2010, duration ≤ 12 months, without prior administration of disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, glucocorticoids) underwent 32-row scanning for CAC scoring. Agatston, volume and mass calcium scores were calculated. Additionally, we used...
