Authors: Li XH, Hu YM, Yin GL, Wu P Abstract Background and objective: Atrial electrical remodelling (AER) was significantly associated with atrial fibrillation (AF) development. Polymorphisms in hyperpolarization activated cyclic nucleotide gated potassium channel 4 (HCN4) gene might be correlated with AER. In the present study, we explored the association of HCN4 polymorphisms (rs498005 and rs7164883) with lone AF risk in a Chinese Han population. Methods: In this case-control study, the Sanger sequencing method was utilized to genotype the HCN4 polymorphisms. Relative risk of AF was assessed by the χ2 test, ...

Introduction: Life expectancy in women with breast cancer (BC) is 80% at 5 years. Age, medications, obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes increase cardiovascular risk. The Mediterranean diet (MeD) and low glycemic index (GI) diets, nevertheless, are protective. Therefore, we evaluated the effect of low-GI Mediterranean diet on cardiovascular risk factors in women treated for BC.

Introduction: Several lines of evidence confirm the role of the Mediterranean Diet (MedD) on primary and secondary prevention of chronic disease, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) includes physical, mental, emotional and social factors. A few studies evaluated the impact of the MedD on HRQOL. Therefore, we investigated the possible effect of adherence to the MedD on HRQOL in the DEDiCa Study (NCT02786875) participants, a study that evaluates the combined effect of diet, physical activity and vitamin D on the risk of recurrence in women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Introduction: To date, the Mediterranean diet is the first therapeutic approach for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Conversation Maps ™ (C-Maps™) are interactive educational tools on diabetes, with a strong visual impact. The “Healthy Eating and Keeping Active” provides for a healthy eating style and physical activity in order to better handle diabetes. The aim of the study has been to evaluate the impact on changing eatin g habits and increasing the knowledge of the disease with the group therapeutic education through the use of C-Maps™ tool.

Conclusion: We studied 81 type 2 diabetic patients, with established cardiovascular disease, consecutively admitted to our outpatient clinic in the Division of Diabetes of La Paz Hospital. We collected clinic and demographic data, ABI and TBI were measured and at the same time a carotid Doppler ultrasound was performed. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to investigate the association of ABI and TBI with carotid disease. We found a negative correlation between TBI and internal carotid artery peak systolic velocity (ICA PSV) (r = -0,300, p= 0,007), common carotid artery resistance index (CCA RI) (r = -0,232, p= 0,...

Authors: Chaturvedi M, Pandey A, Javed M, Baiswar R Abstract India leads the world with largest number of Diabetic subjects earning the dubious distinction of "Diabetic Capital of the world." Every 5th patients visiting a physician is diabetic. Epidemiological data from various parts of country show a rising prevalence of diabetes. India faces a grave health care burden due to high prevalence of Type-2 diabetes and its sequelae. The brunt of disease is that type 2 DM frequently remains undiagnosed until its complications appear. Early detection and prompt treatment may reduce the burden of disease and its...

Authors: Kumar S, Gupta A, Sameja P, Patel I, Gupta S Abstract Diabetes mellitus a disease with various macro and micro vascular complications due to its various metabolic dysregulations, is well known to involve lungs in long run in both type 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus, causing tremendous burden on health care system. Common simple lung function tests alone are likely to underestimate the prevalence and degree of lung dysfunction in diabetes, but newer noninvasive tests of lung mechanical function provide a more sensitive assessment of peripheral airway function, hence by establishing a marker and risk factors for ...

P-IGT (positive IGT on two oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT), T-IGT (IGT in first OGTT and normal glucose tolerance (NGT) in the 2nd OGTT). Methods: The samples were collected from a randomized controlled diabetes prevention study. The p...
