The association of hyperuricemia and immediate postpartum hypertension in women without a diagnosis of chronic hypertension.

The association of hyperuricemia and immediate postpartum hypertension in women without a diagnosis of chronic hypertension. Hypertens Pregnancy. 2018 Jul 17;:1-5 Authors: Marrs CC, Rahman M, Dixon L, Olson G Abstract Our objective was to determine if elevated uric acid (UA) is associated with postpartum hypertension (PP HTN) in women without chronic hypertension. This is a secondary analysis of a randomized trial. We compared those with elevated UA to those with normal UA. Logistic regression was conducted to determine the association of elevated UA with PP HTN. Five hundred and fifty-six women met criteria. An UA level ≥ 5.2 mg/dL was associated with immediate PP HTN (adjusted odds ratio 2.44, 95% CI 1.63-3.64). The association was stronger among overweight and obese women. We conclude that hyperuricemia is associated with PP HTN, especially among obese women. PMID: 30014728 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Objectives: Either maternal gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) or hypertensive disorder of pregnancy (HDP) is associated with an increased risk of obesity in the offspring. However, their joint associations with obesity in offspring remain unclear. We investigated the joint associations of maternal GDM and HDP with childhood overweight in offspring.Methods: We performed a large study in 1967 mother-child pairs. Maternal GDM was diagnosed according to the 1999 World Health Organization (WHO) criteria. HDP was defined as self-reported doctor-diagnosed hypertension or treatment of hypertension (including gestational hyperten...

AbstractEmerging evidence suggests that bariatric surgery improves pregnancy outcomes of women with obesity by reducing the rates of gestational diabetes, pregnancy-induced hypertension, and macrosomia. However, it is associated with an increased risk of a small-for-gestational-age fetus and prematurity. Based on the work of a multidisciplinary task force, we propose clinical practice recommendations for pregnancy management following bariatric surgery. They are derived from a comprehensive review of the literature, existing guidelines, and expert opinion covering the preferred type of surgery for women of childbearing age...

ConclusionsHigher inflammatory potential of the diet was positively associated with higher total cholesterol levels in women with SLE. These findings suggest that the inflammatory potential of a person’s diet may play a role in lipid profiles in this population. Future intervention studies are needed to build on these results and explore the effect of anti-inflammatory diets on health outcomes in individuals with SLE.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo review the latest reports of the contributions of the endothelial mineralocorticoid receptor to endothelial dysfunction and hypertension to begin to determine the clinical potential for this pathway for hypertension treatment.Recent FindingsEndothelial mineralocorticoid receptor expression is sex-specifically increased in female mice and humans compared with males. Moreover, the expression of endothelial mineralocorticoid receptors is increased by endothelial progesterone receptor activation and naturally occurring fluctuations in progesterone levels (estrous, pregnancy) predict endothelial mine...

In conclusion, in the absence of obesity, visceral adipose tissue possesses a pronounced anti-inflammatory phenotype during aging which is further enhanced by exercise. Methods of Inducing Cellular Damage are Rarely Relevant to Aging, and the Details Matter https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2019/08/methods-of-inducing-cellular-damage-are-rarely-relevant-to-aging-and-the-details-matter/ One of the major challenges in aging research is determining whether or not models of cellular or organismal damage and its consequences are in any way relevant to the natural processes of aging. One can hit a brick with...

This study explored the appropriate classification of pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) in women of childbearing age in Beijing, China. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Women with singleton pregnancies at more than 28 gestational weeks were retrospectively reviewed. Based on the pre-pregnancy BMI (kg/m2), these patients were divided into 7 groups: =18.5-22.9,>=23-23.9,>=24-24.9,>=25-27.9,>=28-29.9, and>=30. Pregnancy adverse outcomes, including gestational hypertension with or without preeclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus, initial cesarean section, postpartum hemorrhage, macrosomia, large-for-gestation...

Publication date: Available online 20 August 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Amanda Zacharzewski, Ross MacnabAbstractCardiac disease is a significant cause of maternal mortality. In the UK in the last maternal mortality report, it was the leading cause of indirect maternal deaths (2.39 deaths per 100,000 maternities). The overall rate of maternal mortality from cardiac disease has significantly increased over the last three decades, with this increase being mostly attributable to deaths from ischaemic heart disease, myocardial infarction and peripartum cardiomyopathy. Conditions such as pulmo...
