Authors: Okopień B, Bułdak Ł, Bołdys A Abstract INTRODUCTION: The need to reduce residual cardiovascular risk led to the development of novel therapeutic strategies to improve patients' outcomes. The residual risk in people with atherogenic dyslipidemia, despite LDL reduction obtained mainly by statins, remains high. Fibrates in those patients lead to significant clinical improvements. Those include reduction in the progression of atherosclerosis, which translates into decrease in cardiovascular events and improvements in microvascular diabetic complications. Furthermore there are other clinical and biochemical...

(CBS News) — As American workers approach this year’s open-enrollment season for employer-sponsored health care plans, they can expect the same bad news they’ve been hearing for years: Workers are once again getting hit with more of the costs of their coverage in the form of higher premiums and higher deductibles. Annual family premiums rose 5 percent to an average of $19,616, the eighth year of increases, according to the 2018 Kaiser Family Foundation Health Benefits Survey released earlier this month. On average, workers contribute $5,547 of the cost of family coverage. Premiums for singles increased 3 ...

Publication date: Available online 17 October 2018Source: Life SciencesAuthor(s): Hai-na Zhang, Qiao-qiao Xu, Abhimanyu Thakur, Martin Omondi Alfred, Manas Chakraborty, Arunima Ghosh, Xu-ben YuAbstractThe vascular endothelium acts as a barrier between the blood flow and the inner lining of the vessel wall, and it functions as a filtering machinery to filter out any unwanted transfer of materials from both sides (i.e. the blood and the surrounding tissues). It is evident that diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and hypertension disturb the normal endothelial functions in humans and lead to endothelial dysfunction, which may...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the risk profile, presentation, and outcomes of young adults undergoing coronary angiography. METHODS: A retrospective analysis (2000-2017) of patients aged ≤ 35 years undergoing angiography for evaluation and/or treatment of CAD was conducted. RESULTS: Coronary angiography was performed in 108 patients (88% males): 67 acute coronary syndrome (AC...

This study aims to understand how online communities can contribute to increasing the adherence of chronic patients to the treatment prescribed by the physician in Brazil. For this purpose, we applied the netnography method to analyze the community Diabetes: vivendo e aprendendo – troca de informa ções (free translation: “ Diabetes: living and learning – information exchange ” ), considering the dimensions of adherence proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a theoretical framework. The analysis shows the influence of cyberculture on health and disease processes, resulting i...

This study aimed to identify the incidence and risk factors for the reduced functional capacity of community-dwelling elderly. A prospective, two-stage cohort study was conducted in 2011 and 2014. The study population consisted of 202 initially independent older adults for the basic activities of daily living. The relative risk (RR) and its respective 95% confidence intervals (CI) were used as a measure of association and were estimated by log-binomial regression with robust variance. The incidence of lower functional capacity was 15.3%. The risk factors for the functional decline were unmarried status (RRadj = 2.75; 95%CI...
