Horm Metab Res DOI: 10.1055/a-1133-7255The coexistence of aldosterone oversecretion and obstructive sleep apnea is frequently observed, especially in patients with resistant hypertension, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Since aldosterone excess and sleep apnea are both independently associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, to investigate whether their coexistence might be attributed to common predisposing conditions, such as metabolic disorders, or to an actual pathophysiological interconnection appears of great importance. Fluid overload and metabolic abnormalities relating to aldosterone oversecretio...

Abstract Sleep is essential to and an integral part of life and when lacking or disrupted, a multitude of mental and physical pathologies ensue, including cardiovascular (CV) disease, which increase health care costs. Several prospective studies and meta-analyses show that insomnia, short (9h) sleep and other sleep disorders are associated with an increased risk of hypertension, metabolic syndrome, myocardial infarction, heart failure, arrhythmias, CV disease risk and/or mortality. The mechanisms by which insomnia and other sleep disorders lead to increased CV risk may encompass inflammatory, immunological, neuro-...

This study aimed to investigate the relationship between iodine status and metabolic disorders, such as metabolic syndrome, hypertension, impaired glucose metabolism, central obesity and dyslipidemia. METHODS: 51,795 subjects aged ≥18 years from the TIDE (Thyroid Disorders, Iodine Status and Diabetes, a national epidemiological cross-sectional study) program were included. The prevalence of metabolic disorders and its related diseases were calculated based on the level of urinary iodine concentrations (UICs) using the chi-square method. To further explore whether prevalence was associated with UIC, quadratic and UIC...

CONCLUSIONS: MetS and RAS damage mitochondria in pig renal artery ECs, which may impair EC function. However, coexisting MetS and RAS did not aggravate EC mitochondrial injury and dysfunction in the short time of our in-vivo studies. These findings suggest that mitochondrial injury is associated with impaired renal artery EC function. PMID: 32179886 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Loneliness is common in schizophrenia with prevalence estimates as high as 80% among people with schizophrenia. Recent studies among non-psychiatric samples have indicated deleterious effects of loneliness on physical health and mortality, including increased risk of hypertension, central obesity, metabolic syndrome, coronary heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular disorders. The all-cause mortality risk of loneliness is double that from obesity and equivalent to that from smoking ¾ of a pack of cigarettes per day.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship between MetS (and its components) and SSNHL.MethodsEighty-one SSNHL patients and 243 sex-, aged-matched controls participated from January 2018 to July 2019. The participants included 176 (54.3%) men and 148 (45.7%) women. The correlation between Mets components, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, and the onset of SSNHL was analyzed using used multivariate conditional logistic regression analysis.ResultsA total 12 patients (14.8%) with SSNHL and 27 subjects (11.1%) in control group had MetS (p >  0.05). The rate of low levels of ...

The objectives were to measure the ability of the NIM-MetS test, previously used in the adults, for the early and sustainable detection of the Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) in children and adolescents. Moreover, to determine the economic burden of the children with MetS. Furthermore, finally, to use and implement the NIM-MetS test, via a self-created online software, as a new method to determine the risk of MetS in children. The method used was an observational study using different instruments (NIM-MetS test, International Diabetes Federation (IDF), or Cook) and measures (body mass index). Additionally, the economic burden wa...

In conclusions, HFD-driven adverse chymase/AngII/AT1R/Nox/superoxide signaling in young rats was prevented by inhibition of sEH via at least in part, an EET-mediated stabilization of mast cells, highlighting chymase and sEH as therapeutic targets during treatment of MetS.
