Metabolic medicine?

I read that chemical pathologists can specialize in metabolic medicine. I just stumbled accross this yesterday and found it quite intriguing My questions are: What do you guys treat and do, typical work and patient contact? All I hear its a relatively newer subspecialty and that they can treat any metabolic manifestations and are involved in parenteral nutrition. There's a fair amount of lab and patient contact which sounds cool. Involved in treating diabetes, hypertension, obesity... Metabolic medicine?

This study examines the association between CVD risk factors and nativity/length of US residence. Using cross-sectional data from 15,965 adults in the 2011–2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (analyzed in 2018), prevalence ratios and predicted marginals from logistic regression models are used to estimate associations of CVD risk factors (i.e., hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes, overweight/obesity and smoking) with nativity/length of residence (

In conclusion, high-dose NR induces the onset of WAT dysfunction, which may in part explain the deterioration of metabolic health. Towards a Rigorous Definition of Cellular Senescence The accumulation of lingering senescent cells is a significant cause of aging, disrupting tissue function and generating chronic inflammation throughout the body. Even while the first senolytic drugs capable of selectively destroying these cells already exist, and while a number of biotech companies are working on the productio...

Authors: Chudek A, Owczarek AJ, Ficek J, Almgren-Rachtan A, Chudek J Abstract Background: Home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) became a standard in the management of hypertension. However, there are few data concerning the utilisation of blood pressure (BP) monitors in daily clinical practice.Aim: The aim of this analysis was to show: (1) how frequently hypertensive patients are equipped with BP monitors, (2) how often they perform regular HBPM and running BP diaries, (3) what are the correlates of utilisation of BP monitors, in a large real-life cohort of hypertensives examined for the efficacy of antihypertensiv...

ConclusionWLG group did not have decreased perioperative morbidity, nor improved weight loss and comorbidity resolution 4 years after surgery. While these findings should also be confirmed by multicenter trials, they question the value of mandated WLG prior to bariatric surgery as they seem ineffective and may limit patient access to surgery.

Publication date: Available online 6 November 2019Source: JACC: Heart FailureAuthor(s): Milton PackerAbstractBoth obesity and type 2 diabetes are important risk factors for the development of heart failure with a preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), and both disorders increase the risk of systemic thromboembolic events. Traditionally, the risk of stroke has been explained by the strong association of these disorders with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, adiposity and diabetes are risk factors for systemic thromboembolism, even in the absence of AF, because both can lead to the development of an inflammatory and fibrotic ...

AbstractBackgroundWhile evidence of improved renal function following gastric bypass exists, pre-operative predictors of this improvement are not completely known.ObjectivesTo assess the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) 1  year after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and to identify pre-operative predictors associated with the improvement of renal function.MethodsA historical cohort study, which included 109 obese patients before and 12  months after RYGB, was classified into subgroups according to GFR (normofiltration, hypofiltration (GFR   95th percentile)). The 5th and 95th percentiles were 90 and ...
