ConclusionSGLT2 inhibitors have relatively safe profiles and can efficiently decrease HbA1c as well as fasting and postprandial glucose levels. Furthermore, SGLT2 inhibitors administrations are not associated with significant hypoglycemic episodes or weight gain. Thus, combination of SGLT2 inhibitors and other less harmful anti-diabetic medicines could be considered if there is no any contraindication.

CONCLUSIONS: ET-1 overexpression in the pulmonary artery preceded development of PH, but it was clearly and unexpectedly downregulated in the lungs of monocrotaline-treated rats and showed no correlation to disease progression markers. We speculate that endothelin-1 may play opposing roles in the lungs vs pulmonary artery in monocrotaline-induced PH. PMID: 31012341 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Over the past decade, our field has observed rapidly rising rates of mental illness in children and adolescents. The numbers are sobering. Nearly 50% of teens 13 to 18 years of age meet DSM criteria for at least 1 disorder and 27.6% meet criteria for a “severe disorder.”1 Adverse childhood experiences affect more than 50% of children and predispose these individuals to not only academic and behavioral problems throughout their youth, but also future physical disability, such as obesity, hypertension, and diabetes, as adults.2 By 14 years of ag e, accidents, suicide, and homicide assert themselves as the leading...

Fadouloglou, Abdul Rauf Siddiqi, Yang ZhangAbstractThe human soluble Guanylate Cyclase (hsGC) is a heterodimeric heme-containing enzyme which regulates many important physiological processes. In eukaryotes, hsGC is the only known receptor for nitric oxide (NO) signaling. Improper NO signaling results in various disease conditions such as neurodegeneration, hypertension, stroke and erectile dysfunction. To understand the mechanisms of these diseases, structure determinat...

BellHypertension is a growing problem in children and adolescents, with primary hypertension becoming the most common etiology. In addition to demonstrating that high blood pressure in children and young adults is likely to remain elevated into adulthood, this review (1) addresses important aspects of measuring blood pressure in children and adolescents, (2) defines elevated blood pressure and hypertension in this age group, (3) describes the initial evaluatio...

The overall strategies of defining and managing these conditions are aimed at preventing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications in the mother without jeopardizing fetal well-being. Our understanding of the origin of these disorders is evolving. Women with chronic hypertension should undergo a prepregnancy evaluation and close monitoring during and after pregnancy to ensure medication safety and ...

This article reviews relationships between mild to moderate essential hypertension and chronic kidney disease with a focus on the role of APOL1 in development of hypertension. Available evidence strongly supports that APOL1 renal-risk variants associate with glomerulosclerosis in African Americans, which then causes secondary hypertension, not with essential hypertension per se.

RajHypertension is considered as the most common risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Inflammatory processes link hypertension and cardiovascular disease, and participate in their pathophysiology. In recent years, there has been an increase in research focused on unraveling the role of inflammation and immune activation in development and maintenance of hypertension. Although inflammation is known to be associated with hypertension, whether inflammation is a cause or effect of hyp...

TownsendEarly reports of renal denervation as a therapy for hypertension generated intense interest in this approach to management of elevated blood pressures despite ongoing treatment. The publication of the large, sham-controlled randomized clinical trial of renal denervation, Symplicity HTN-3, failed to show superiority of renal denervation by radiofrequency energy ablation compared with a sham procedure similar to the procedure used for denervation but without the application of energy to the renal artery. Th...

Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Anna Burgner, Julia B. LewisHypertension is frequently both a cause and complication of CKD. The optimal blood pressure target in CKD has been of hot debate over the decades with little data to inform the goals. Here, we review the data from the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT), Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD), African American Study of Kidney Disease and Hypertension (AASK), Ramipril Efficacy in Nephropathy-2 (REIN-2), and Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD) trials to ...
