Three easy measures to predict metabolic syndrome in elderly
(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) A new study found a surprisingly high rate of metabolic syndrome among individuals aged 60-100 years.
In this study we investigated the relationship between culprit atherosclerotic plaque phenotype assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) in young patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS We investigated the OCT imaging and HHcy of 123 lesions in 123 young patients (≤45 years of age). According to OCT images, culprit lesions were classified as thin-cap fiber atheroma (TCFA), thrombus, and other. The 123 patients were grouped as: HHcy group (53 cases, HHcy ≥15.5 µmol/l) and control group (70 cases, HHcy

Gaudry, Michaela Keuper, Martin JastrochAbstractIn eutherian mammals, brown adipose tissue (BAT) permits non-shivering thermogenesis (NST) through high metabolic rates catalyzed by the unique mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1). The tissue has recently gained remarkable attention due its discovery in adult humans. Approaching BAT and UCP1 as therapeutic targets to combust surplus energy bares high potential to combat the epidemic of the metabolic syndrome that has precipitated in our society as a result of our mo...
Conclusion: The blood pressure, sr. triglycerides, sr. high density lipids, fasting blood sugar were significant in cases as compared to controls satisfying the criteria of Adult Panel Treatment III (ATP III) of Metabolic Disorders. PMID: 31309797 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: Hyperhomocystienemia in psoriasis patients with or without comorbidities versus healthy controls suggests its possible dysregulation in psoriasis. The significance of hyperhomocystienemia as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular or other comorbidities in psoriasis patients remains tenuous at best. Well-designed studies will perhaps resolve this issue. PMID: 31309792 [PubMed - in process]
In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effect of 2 years' CKD-follow-up project regarding renal function and CKD risks. Patients and methods: Those who received a health checkup by the national health insurance in Okayama city in 2011 were recruited. The patients with lifestyle-related diseases or metabolic syndrome were excluded. Subjects who had an estimated glomerular filtration rate
CONCLUSION: Adults with excess body fat present lower glucose and diastolic BP during a day with breaks in sitting time compared with a prolonged sitting day with or without an LV-HIIE session. PMID: 31310990 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Our meta-analysis results revealed higher cardiovascular risk in OA patients. This highlights the importance of cardiovascular risk factor management in OA.

ConclusionOverall, it seems that given its ease of measurement, the WC index is preferred to other indices for predicting the incidence of MetS and its components in clinical screening.
