Asthma inhalers found to make women fat while increasing risk of heart disease

(Natural News) Corticosteroids in asthma inhalers could make women fat and increase the risk of metabolic syndrome, a recent study found. Corticosteroids are widely-used anti-inflammatory agents that come in many forms — such as inhalers, nasal sprays, tablets, injections and cream — and are prescribed to ease symptoms of asthma and other respiratory diseases. Metabolic...

ConclusionsPatients with CMS were more likely to present with increased comorbidities. Patients with CMS undergoing CABG were at risk for worse short ‐term secondary postoperative outcomes and reduced long‐term survival. The data supports the need for further investigation for risk reduction surrounding operative revascularization.

AbstractCardiac troponin I (cTnI) is a regulatory protein with a high sensitivity and specificity for cardiac injury. Preoperative and postoperative elevations of cTnI are usually considered predictors of the mortality and morbidity. However, little is known about the relationship between the cTnI and postoperative course after the congenital heart disease (CHD) operation. Sixty-five consecutive patients who underwent cardiac surgery for CHD at our institution between March 2016 and January 2017 were included. The cTnI was measured after the operation. Also, the association between the cTnI and duration of the catecholamin...

This study examined the effect on PRU in Japanese coronary heart disease patients with long-term DAPT (aspirin  + clopidogrel) when switching from clopidogrel to prasugrel. Ninety-six patients were enrolled in this study. The median DAPT duration at enrollment was 1824.0 days. Twenty-three patients with PRU ≥ 208 at enrollment were randomly assigned into either continuing to receive clopidogrel (C ontinued Group;n = 11) or switching to prasugrel (Switched Group;n = 12). The primary endpoint was the rate of patients who achieved PRU

Authors: Kubota M Abstract Recent evidence suggests that hyperuricemia is an important condition in children and adolescents, particularly in association with noncommunicable diseases. This review aims to summarize our current understanding of this condition in pediatric patients. An analysis of serum uric acid reference values in a healthy population indicates that they increase gradually with age until adolescence, with differences between the sexes arising at about 12 years of age. This information should be taken into consideration when defining hyperuricemia in studies. Gout is extremely rare in childre...

We examined 42 healthy female physique athletes (age 27.5 ± 4.0 years, body mass index 23.4 ± 1.7 kg/m2) volunteered into either a diet group (n = 25) or a control group (n = 17). For the diet group, the energy intake was reduced and exercise levels were increased to induce loss of fat mass that was subsequently regained during a recovery period. The control group was instructed to maintain their typical lifestyle, exercise levels, and energy intake at a constant level. For quantification of systems biology markers, fasting blood samples were drawn at three time points: baseline (PRE), at the end of the weigh...
