Central Obesity is the Key Component in the Association of Metabolic Syndrome With Left Ventricular Global Longitudinal Strain Impairment

Conclusions Metabolic syndrome is independently associated with impaired GLS. Among the MS criteria, central obesity best depicted the link between metabolic derangement and cardiac function.

Abstract Green tea (Camellia sinensis, Theaceace), has been extensively studied for its putative effects in prevention of age related diseases. Here, we discuss the increasing evidence that consumption of green tea has preventative effects in obesity, hypertension, insulin resistance, type II diabetes, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease and Metabolic Syndrome (MetS). The catechins in green tea has been found to be beneficial in obesity induced by a high-fat diet. These effects are mainly attributable to the gallate esters of catechins, (-)-epicatechin gallate (ECG) and (-)-epigallocatechin-3- gallate (EGCG). ...

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) affects 10% of adolescents and is associated with development of diabetes and heart disease. Abdominal obesity, representing excess visceral fat, is the most prevalent component of MetS. Sagittal abdominal diameter (SAD) is highly correlated with visceral fat, yet its use in the clinical setting is largely nonexistent. We aimed to determine MetS prevalence and association between MetS severity and SAD in adolescents undergoing bariatric surgery.

This study, as well as other research on the connection between diet and sugary beverages and health risks, is observational and cannot show cause and effect. That’s a major limitation, researchers say, as it’s impossible to determine whether the association is due to a specific artificial sweetener, a type of beverage, obesity or another hidden health issue. “The cause behind these associations isn’t clear,” said Bergquist. “Other potential biological causes could be attributed to experimental evidence linking consumption of artificial sweeteners to sugar cravings, appetite stimulation ...

Metabolic syndrome is an increasingly prevalent constellation of disease processes among the global population. Hypertension and obesity are among the contributing etiologies, and obesity increases the likelihood of hypertensive heart disease by creating a proinflammatory state, as well as increasing sympathetic tone and formation of reactive oxygen species. Hypertensive heart disease is characterized by myocardial fibrosis, which portends higher risk of developing reduced ejection fraction, diastolic dysfunction, ischemia, and arrhythmias, making early diagnosis and treatment essential to the prevention of cardiac events.

In a Finnish study that included researchers from UCLA, the DNA from nearly 20,000 people was harnessed to identify genetic mutations that may increase the risk of diabetes, high cholesterol and other diseases and conditions.The findings, published in the journal Nature, suggest the potential for using genomic sequencing to uncover variations that may increase the risk for several common health problems, including heart disease, obesity and metabolic syndrome. The researchers also identified genetic differences that may result in below-average height and weight.The study authors — from UCLA, Washington University, th...

Authors: Niwa K Abstract In adult congenital heart disease (ACHD), residua and sequellae after initial repair develop late complications such as cardiac failure, arrhythmias, thrombosis, aortopathy, pulmonary hypertension and others. Acquired lesions with aging such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity can be negative influence on original cardiovascular disease (CVD). Also, atherosclerosis may pose an additional health problem to ACHD when they grow older and reach the age at which atherosclerosis becomes clinically relevant. In spite of the theoretical risk of atherosclerosis in ACHD due to above mentioned...

The objectives of this work are to describe the presentation of the disease and to identify the risk factors of the coronary woman in comparison with the man.MethodologyA prospective study with dual aim, descriptive and analytical spread over the year about 160 cases of women admitted for SCA at the CHU Ibn Sina ANNABA; compared to 390 men also hospitalized for SCA during the same period.ResultsThe overall hospital prevalence of SCA is 0.49%, its frequency in the cardiology department is 27%, of which 29% are women: the SCA in women is essentially in the form of NSTEMI (60% of cases). The risk profile is higher for women, ...

Conclusion: The risk factors like high TG, low HDL, high BP, and high fasting glucose were found higher particularly in younger population which may lead to diagnosis &complications of diabetes, hypertension and lipid abnormality. Due to changing physiology in young and middle age population these individuals are moving towards metabolic syndrome easily and needs frequent monitoring, preventive checkups, and lifestyle changes to prevent complications.
