High blood pressure: Drinking this fruit juice could lower your reading
HIGH blood pressure is a common condition which rarely shows any symptoms, but left untreated serious and even life-threatening complications can occur. The condition can be prevented or controlled by some simple lifestyle changes, such as changing what you eat. A certain drink could help lower your reading.
CONCLUSIONS: Refugees had comparable burden of non-communicable diseases, but a greaterleast once during the study period proportion of refugees than of the U.S. population had uncontrolled conditions. Duration of follow-up, obesity, tobacco use, gender, age, and region of origin were risk factors for diagnosis. Culturally-tailored chronic disease management strategies are needed.

DiscussionWe suggest an open gastrectomy with roux-en-Y anastomosis as an alternative to the Nissen fundoplication for patients with connective tissue disease that develop terminal pulmonary consequences and require a lung transplant.

AbstractPulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a serious and often fatal complication of connective tissue disease (CTD). Right atrial (RA) function is essential to maintaining adequate total right heart function in PAH. However, little is known about prognostic utility of RA function in CTD-PAH. RA longitudinal strain (LS) and strain rate (LSR) were evaluated in 53 consecutive patients (51 female, mean age 42 ± 15 years) with CTD-PAH, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) (33.7%), mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) (32.1%), primary Sjögren’s syndrome (pSS) (26.4%), and sy...
ConclusionWe assume that these eleven increased placenta derived factors are responsible for LSEC damage which eventually leads to liver failure. This concept shows a possible design of the complicated pathophysiology in HELLP syndrome. However further research is required.
In this study, we aimed to investigate the predictive value of hyperglycemia on thrombus burden in nondiabetic patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent to primer percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). We enrolled 619 nondiabetic patients with STEMI who received PPCI. Patients were divided two groups according to thrombus burden. Stress hyperglycemia was determined as blood glucose concentration more than 180 mg/dl and angiographic coronary thrombus burden was scored based on thrombolysis in myocardial infarction thrombus grades. Patients with thrombus grades 4 were defined as lar...

HIGH blood pressure is a common condition that can lead to serious and even life-threatening health complications if left untreated. But one way the condition could be prevented or a high reading reduced is drinking a traditional Chinese tea.
