Discussion, and change it from "Although we used lower sex-specific cut-off limits to define microalbuminuria, the prevalence of microalbuminuria in our study population was slightly lower than several previous population studies in Chinese..." to "The prevalence of microalbuminuria in our study population was slightly lower than several previous population studies in Chinese..." 5. In the paragraph B.8.3 of the Discussion, remove the last sentence entirely: "Nonetheless, as exemplified in the present study, in subjects without established cardiovascular disease, such as treated hypertension might also be a significant correlate of microalbuminuria."

Authors: Dutra JDM, Lisboa QC, Ferolla SM, Carvalho CMML, Mendes CCM, Ferrari TCA, Couto CA Abstract Some epidemiological evidence suggests an inverse correlation between non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) frequency and vitamin D levels. Likewise, a beneficial effect of vitamin D on diabetes mellitus (DM) and insulin resistance has been observed, but this is an unsolved issue. Thus, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of hypovitaminosis D in a NAFLD Brazilian population and its association with disease severity and presence of comorbidities. In a cross-sectional study, the clinical, biochemical and histo...

CONCLUSIONS: The most frequent risk factors for cardiovascular disease in persons deprived of their liberty were those classified as modifiable. In the prison setting, these factors are enhanced due to an environment with little modification of these opportunities. PMID: 32555958 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: γGT may be considered as a marker of systemic inflammation and CV risk in RA patients. Based on these findings, we herein propose an original index, the DAS28-γGT, able to evaluate both joint disease activity and CV risk. This index will deserve further validation in prospective cohorts. PMID: 32541072 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study provides direct evidence for the contribution of gut microbiota to the cognitive decline during normal aging and suggests that restoring microbiota homeostasis in the elderly may improve cognitive function. On Nutraceutical Senolytics Nutraceuticals are compounds derived from foods, usually plants. In principle one can find useful therapies in the natural world, taking the approach of identifying interesting molecules and refining them to a greater potency than naturally occurs in order to produce a usefully large therape...

We live in a world in which most people do not undertake anywhere near the level of physical activity that is optimal. Thus adding greater physical activity as a lifestyle choice appears very beneficial. There is a great deficiency, one that has serious consequences to health, and fixing that deficiency is touted as a successful intervention. But in reality, the situation is one in which most people harm their long term health through a form of self-neglect. This era of cheap calories and comfort is a time of vast benefits for humanity - but it has a few downsides, and this is one of them. This meta-analysis showe...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common cause of liver disease in the United States, and is estimated to affect up to a quarter of adults in the world. It is defined by excess fat accumulating in the liver and usually occurs in people with obesity, high blood sugars (diabetes), abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels, or high blood pressure. These disorders often run together and as a group are called metabolic syndrome. The “non-alcoholic” part of “non-alcoholic fatty liver disease” is important to distinguish it from alcohol-related liver disease, which can also cause excess liver...

The dysmetabolic iron overload syndrome (DIOS) is characterized by producing hyperferritinemia (HF) with slight elevation of the hepatic iron concentration, usually a normal transferrin saturation (TS), together with one or more diagnostic factors of metabolic syndrome (MtS) [1,2]: obesity, arterial hypertension, dyslipidaemia, and/or abnormal metabolism of glucose or BMI> 25  kg/m². It is associated up to 50% with NAFLD / NASH [3]. The diagnosis is made discarding the usual causes of hepatic iron overload (hereditary hemochromatosis, alcohol, secondary hemosiderosis, etc.).

ConclusionThe findings suggest that there is a predominant relationship between men withPNPLA3 I148M variant with NAFLD in women. Patients with NAFLD carryingPNPLA3 rs738409 G>C variant are at higher risk of NAFLD.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are worldwide public health problems, affecting up to 25 –30% (NAFLD), and up to 10–15% (CKD) of the general population. Recently, it has also been established that there is a strong association between NAFLD and CKD, regardless of the presence of potential confounding diseases such as obesity, hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Since NAFLD and CKD are both common diseases that often occur alongside other metabolic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome, elucidating the relative impact of NAFLD on the risk of incident C...

Abstract Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a combination of cardiovascular risk factors including obesity, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, insulin resistance, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and diastolic heart failure. This syndrome has been identified as one of the greatest global health challenges of the 21st century. Herein, we examine in a porcine model of diet-induced MetS whether cardiovascular, metabolic, gut microbiota and functional metataxonomic changes mimic those observed in human studies. Landrace pigs with mineralocorticoid-induced hypertension fed a high-fat, salt and sugar diet (HFD) over 12 weeks were...
