Relationship Between Elevated Automatic Blood Pressure Readings and Manual Blood Pressure Readings in Adult Patients With Normal and High Body Mass Index.

Relationship Between Elevated Automatic Blood Pressure Readings and Manual Blood Pressure Readings in Adult Patients With Normal and High Body Mass Index. J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2019 Jun 01;119(6):364-370 Authors: Hussain MM, Solomon IE, Pazdernik V, Bandarpalle S, Navarro I, Shneyder T, LeBeau L Abstract Context: Discrepancies in ambulatory blood mercury sphygmomanometers pressure readings exist between automated blood pressure machines and manual mercury sphygmomanometers. For patients with elevated blood pressure, consistent blood pressure readings between these methods are important across all body mass index (BMI) levels. Objective: To determine the relationship between automated and manual blood pressure readings and the effect of BMI in patients with an elevated automated blood pressure reading. Methods: Automated and manual blood pressure readings (using the same arm) were collected from July 2014 to December 2016 across community-oriented primary care clinics in New York City for a retrospective medical record review. Automated systolic blood pressure (SBP) readings greater than 140 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure (DBP) readings greater than 90 mm Hg were qualifying criteria for a manual blood pressure assessment. The difference in automated blood pressure readings relative to a manual blood pressure reading was assessed overall and for any relationship with BMI using linear regression and analysis of variance. Results: Data from 281...

Discussion Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare disorder. It is usually considered an autosomal recessive disorder but there is significant intra-familial variability. There are multiple genes (~20 currently) involved and it is believed that the phenotypic variability is due to “…differences in the total mutational load across different BBS associated genes….” It is a ciliopathy where mutation changes in proteins in the cilias causes problems in the cilia’s functioning particularly signaling. Cilia are important in signaling to maintain tissue and cellular homeostasis. Obviously screening o...

Publication date: Available online 31 July 2019Source: Life SciencesAuthor(s): Yilan Liu, Jing Yu, Yan-Chuan Shi, Yi Zhang, Shu LinAbstractThe epidemiological investigations and animal model experiments have confirmed the impact of obesity on the brain, behavior, and cognition. However, the mechanism by which obesity affects cognitive function is not fully understood. With the development of an aging society, there is an increase in the economic and social burden caused by the decline in cognitive function. This manuscript reviews the effects of inflammation and endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) on the hypothalamus, hippo...

AbstractBackgroundSleeve gastrectomy (SG) has become the most popular bariatric procedure. Although bariatric surgery is recommended for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Asian patients with BMI 27.5 –32.4 kg/m2, reported evidences, especially following SG, are still lacking.MethodsPatients ’ data from June 2016 to June 2018 that underwent SG as primary surgery at our setting were analyzed. Patients with T2DM, without insulin use and BMI 27.5–30 kg/m2, were our main criteria. Preoperative and postoperative parameters were as such: age, BMI, T2DM duration, anti-diabetic medications, fasting plas...

a Han The current study explores the moderation of the relationship between obesity and labor market outcomes by direct employment efforts such as job hunting and job training of young adults. The study used data provided by the Korean Education and Employment Panel, a longitudinal data survey comprising middle and high school students from 2004 to 2015. Two dependent variables were assessed in this study: employment status and wage. The individual-level fixed effects were controlled. Despite having more direct employment efforts of either or both experience in job hunting and job training, compared to normal-weight co...

ConclusionsThe data collected confirmed the existence of safety concerns on herbal dietary supplements used for body weight control, mainly related to quality of products and their use as self-medication. In this scenario, spontaneous reports represent the only tools available to monitor safety of these products.

AbstractDespite major improvements in combatting metastatic melanoma since the advent of immunotherapy, the overall survival for patients with advanced disease remains low. Recently, there is a growing number of reports supporting an “obesity paradox,” in which patients who are overweight or mildly obese may exhibit a survival benefit in patients who received immune checkpoint inhibitors. We studied the relationship between body mass index and progression-free survival and overall survival in a cohort of 423 metastatic melan oma patients receiving immunotherapy, enrolled and prospectively followed up in the NYU...
