Conclusion: A high prevalence of cardiovascular and metabolic disease and a high cardiovascular risk were evidenced in patients with NFPMA, especially in men. Risk factors such as the personal history of hypertension and dyslipidemia could explain the foregoing, so the control and treatment of metabolic parameters and cardiovascular risk should be an integral part of the follow-up of these patients.

AbstractIntroductionBased on existing data regarding the durability of liraglutide in type 2 diabetes, this study aimed to assess its long-term effectiveness at 5  years and its overall impact on cardiovascular (CV) risk.MethodsThis was a multicenter retrospective observational study. Liraglutide was used under routine clinical practice conditions. Changes from baseline to 60  months in HbA1c, fasting plasma glucose (FPG), body weight, blood pressure, and lipid profile were assessed. United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS) scores were calculated at baseline and after 60 months to assess changes in ...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of baked psyllium supplementation versus those who received a placebo on constipation symptoms, body weight, glycemic and lipids control in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and chronic constipation. METHODS: In a single-blinded, randomized controlled trial, 51 patients with T2D and chronic constipation with body mass index (BMI) 20-47 kg/m2 received either 10 g of psyllium pre-mixed in cookies twice per day or placebo cookies for 12 weeks. Constipation symptoms, body mass index (BMI), fasting plasma glucose (FPG), glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), and lipid pro...

gren Yi Depression has become a major global public health problem. Many studies have shown the positive effects of physical exercise on depression. However, few studies have examined the relationship between frequency of leisure time physical exercise and depression without considering the time and intensity of exercise among middle-aged and elderly people of urban communities in northern China. We conducted a cross-sectional survey that included 1604 participants among urban residents aged 50 years or older in China to evaluate how the frequency of physical exercise was related to depression. Our study showed that th...
