CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that increasing the number of breaks in sitting and increasing standing time are beneficially associated with cardiometabolic risk and should be considered in health promotion interventions in children. PMID: 31330500 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

When insurance companies refuse to cover cholesterol-lowering drugs, it puts patients at risk for stroke and heart ailments, a new study says.
Authors: Kasumi E, Kuzumaki Y, Sadakata M, Kuzuoka H, Sato N Abstract Enteral nutrition is beneficial support administered as oral supplements or via tube feeding for patients with long-term inability to meet nutritional requirements orally. However, because of the high volumes administered, vomiting and gastroesophageal reflux are often encountered in patients receiving enteral nutrition. EN-P05 is a novel, highly concentrated enteral nutrition formula that was developed to reduce dosing volume and that satisfies the Japanese recommended daily allowance for most vitamins and trace elements, even in patients who re...
This study aimed to clarify the association between the frequency of dining out and the risk of obesity, diabetes mellitus, and dyslipidemia among Korean adults. This cross-sectional study surveyed 640 participants aged 20-69 years in Korea. Daily intake of energy, fat, protein, and cholesterol significantly increased as the frequency of dining out increased (P
Conclusion: Inpatient statin use was associated with lower stroke recurrence in non-diabetic patients after acute ischaemic stroke, but no definite association between inpatient statin use and stroke recurrence in patients with diabetes mellitus was found.

Receiving statin treatment for five years or more is associated with a 21% reduced risk of primary glaucoma, research has shown.
Fibroblasts from patients with Tangier disease carrying ATP-binding cassette A1 (ABCA1) loss-of-function mutations are characterized by cardiolipin accumulation, a mitochondrial-specific phospholipid. Suppression of ABCA1 expression occurs in glomeruli from patients with diabetic kidney disease (DKD) and in human podocytes exposed to DKD sera collected prior to the development of DKD. We demonstrated that siRNA ABCA1 knockdown in podocytes led to reduced oxygen consumption capabilities associated with alterations in the oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) complexes and with cardiolipin accumulation. Podocyte-specific deleti...
Conclusions: The prevalence of active commuting in the sample studied is low and it was shown to have a crude association with glucose and LDL cholesterol levels in students. However, sociodemographic factors seem to influence these associations.RESUMO Objetivo: Verificar se existe associa ção entre fatores de risco cardiometabólicos e deslocamento ativo à escola em crianças e adolescentes. Métodos: Foram avaliados 1.743 escolares, de sete a 17 anos, do município de Santa Cruz do Sul (RS). A forma de deslocamento até a escola foi investigada por meio de question&aacut...
