Tips for balancing diet with potassium for people with kidney disease

(Natural News) Healthcare professionals usually suggest a sufficient potassium intake to lower an individual’s blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular damage, coronary heart disease, and stroke. But according to a review, for patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) and those with end stage renal disease (ESRD), potassium intake must be carefully controlled to prevent...

AbstractThe 2017 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association hypertension guidelines diagnose hypertension if systolic blood pressure (SBP) is  ≥ 130 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure (DBP) is ≥ 80 mmHg. Increased BP is SBP 120–129 mmHg with DBP

Conclusions—Knowing the patient characteristics predictive of missed opportunities for stroke prevention may help primary care identify and appropriately manage these patients. Improving the management of these groups may reduce their risk and potentially prevent large number of future strokes and TIAs in the population.

Conclusions: Our study suggested that incident CHD was positively associated with plasma levels of titanium and arsenic, and inversely associated with selenium. Additional research is needed to confirm these findings in other populations. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1521 Received: 22 December 2016 Revised: 17 September 2017 Accepted: 19 September 2017 Published: 19 October 2017 Address correspondence to T.

Purpose of review: Adiponectin is an adipokine with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiatherogenic, pro-angiogenic, vasoprotective and insulin-sensitizing properties. Several factors may influence adiponectin levels, such as genetic polymorphisms, obesity / body fat distribution, diet and exercise as well as cardiovascular risk factors such as sleep deprivation and smoking as well as medications. Adiponectin has been proposed as a potential prognostic biomarker and a therapeutic target in patients with cardiometabolic diseases. Recent findings: This narrative review discusses the associations of adiponectin with obesity-...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review discusses the recent evidence for a selection of blood-based emerging risk factors, with particular reference to their relation with coronary heart disease and stroke.Recent FindingsFor lipid-related emerging risk factors, recent findings indicate that increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol is unlikely to reduce cardiovascular risk, whereas reducing triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and lipoprotein(a) may be beneficial. For inflammatory and hemostatic biomarkers, genetic studies suggest that IL-6 (a pro-inflammatory cytokine) and several coagulation factors are causal for cardiova...

Objective: Diabetes is a common among patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, little is known on the impact of diabetes on symptoms, health status, care and outcomes among AF patients. We assessed whether symptoms, health status, care and outcomes differ between AF patients with and without diabetes.Methods: This observational cohort study included 9,749 patients with AF from the Outcomes Registry for Better Informed Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation registry, a prospective, nationwide, multicenter outpatient registry of patients with incident and prevalent AF enrolled at 174 sites between June 2010 and August 2011...

Background: Depressive disorders have been independently associated with increased morbidity and mortality in adults with cardiovascular disease (CVD). We sought to assess the association between depressive disorder and access to care and quality of care among U.S. veterans with CVD.Methods: The 2013 Centers for Disease Control’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey was utilized to identify a cohort of 13,126 veterans with CVD. Presence of CVD was noted with a single affirmative response to the following questions: "Has a health care professional ever told you that you had any of the following:" (1) a...
