Prediabetes, Prehypertension- Do We Need Pre-ckd?

Prediabetes, Prehypertension- Do We Need Pre-ckd? Curr Vasc Pharmacol. 2013 Apr 25; Authors: Malyszko J, Banach M Abstract Screening is the systematic use of a test for a health problem or risk factor when no recognized signs or symptoms would indicate the presence of that problem or risk factor. Abnormal glucose metabolism can be documented years before the onset of overt diabetes. Nowadays, prediabetes can be subdivided into impaired fasting glucose or impaired glucose tolerance. Substantial number of subjects with either will progress to overt diabetes within years. Prediabetes bears also the increased risk of cardiovascular complications. Prehypertension is much newer term introduced by the seventh report of the Joint National Committee (JNC 7) published in 2003 as systolic blood pressure from 120 to 139 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure from 80 to 89 mmHg in adults (not receiving blood pressure-lowering treatment). Similarly prehypertension also increased the risk of cardiovascular complications and progression to hypertension. Chronic kidney disease is also highly prevalent mainly in the elderly. It is associated with important adverse outcomes such as cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. Factors associated with higher risk of chronic kidney disease include mainly hypertension, diabetes, obesity and older age. Early detection and diagnosis of chronic kidney disease may prevent the full blown disease and its end-stage requiring renal replacement therap...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Hypertensive urgencies (HypUrg) are define as severe elevation in blood pressure (BP) without acute target organ damage (TOD). In the office setting, treated asymptomatic patients, with severe BP elevation meeting criteria for urgency are often seen. We evaluate incident CV events (fatal and non-fatal stroke or acute myocardial infarction, TIA, coronary or carotid revascularization, atrial fibrillation (n=311)) during follow-up (FU) in patients with HypUrg at first outpatient visit. METHODS: From the Campania Salute Network (CSN) Registry. HypUrg was define by systolic BP ≥180mmHg and/...

Conclusion A great deal of progress is being made in the matter of treating aging: in advocacy, in funding, in the research and development. It can never be enough, and it can never be fast enough, given the enormous cost in suffering and lost lives. The longevity industry is really only just getting started in the grand scheme of things: it looks vast to those of us who followed the slow, halting progress in aging research that was the state of things a decade or two ago. But it is still tiny compared to the rest of the medical industry, and it remains the case that there is a great deal of work yet to be done at all...

Thus, it is difficult to distinguish the role of hyperuricemia from that of other comorbid conditions in CHF. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between hyperuricemia and CHF in elderly patients without comorbidities.MethodsSubjects aged ≥65 years wer...

Despite receiving complete revascularization using multiple arterial conduits, patients who undergo coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are still susceptible to recurrent major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) owing to the progression of atherosclerotic disease in saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) and native, ungrafted coronary vessels. This is more likely to occur in patients who are obese, have diabetes, have hyperlipidemia, have hypertension, have chronic kidney disease, or who are smokers.

Authors: Chen YY, Shen YC, Lai YJ, Wang CY, Lin KH, Feng SC, Liang CY, Wei LC, Chou P Abstract Purpose: This population-based, retrospective cohort study was to investigate whether metformin is associated with a lower risk of subsequent age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods: Using the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database from 2001 to 2013, 68205 subjects with type 2 diabetes were enrolled in the study cohort. Among them, 45524 were metformin users and 22681 were nonusers. The metformin and nonmetformin groups were followed until the end of 2013. Cox regre...
