ConclusionBoth smoking and BMI are strong risk factors for ED and affect response to ICI and penile duplex parameters (PSV, EDV, RI). Smoking and BMI together cause more deterioration of penile duplex parameters and response to ICI. The effect of smoking on EDV and RI was more than BMI. The effect of BMI on PSV, response to ICI and testosterone levels was more than smoking.

ConclusionsPatients with CMS were more likely to present with increased comorbidities. Patients with CMS undergoing CABG were at risk for worse short ‐term secondary postoperative outcomes and reduced long‐term survival. The data supports the need for further investigation for risk reduction surrounding operative revascularization.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo discuss new findings on the heterogeneity of obesity and associated risks.Recent FindingsObesity is a public health problem of immense importance on a global scale. However, epidemiological findings and clinical studies have revealed that obesity is a heterogeneous phenotype and that not all obese subjects run the same risk for complications. Current research has tried to describe so-called metabolically healthy obesity (MHO), defined by lack of risk factors included in the metabolic syndrome. These subjects will not escape long-term complications, but mortality risk is not increased. However, a...

We investigated the association between FGF-23 concentration and peripheral AS in renal transplantation (RT) recipients.MethodsThe fasting blood samples of RT recipients (n=66) were collected and analyzed.ResultsA total of 29 (43.9%) RT recipients were classified under the peripheral AS group. The RT recipients in this group had a hig...

In conclusion, current evidences indicate the need to monitor UPF intake in global population. However, more studies are necessary to interpret better these associations with similar methodologies used in the studies. As well as longitudinal analyses can help to improve comparisons between outcomes and establish cause-effect relationship between UPF intake and cardiometabolic risk.

HallAbstractHyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance were proposed more than 30 years ago to be important contributors to elevated blood pressure (BP) associated with obesity and the metabolic syndrome, also called syndrome X. Support for this concept initially came from clinical and population studies showing correlations among hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance and elevated BP in individuals with metabolic syndrome. Short-term studies ...

Authors: Rüfer F Abstract Glaucoma therapy usually includes lowering IOP, but a healthy lifestyle may also be recommended. We discuss how this can be defined and the underlying secondary neuroprotective mechanisms. One neuroprotective measure is to avoid common neurotoxic pollution like cigarette smoking, ethanol, methanol or lead. Nutrition should be rich in variety and prevent vitamin B12 and folate deficiency. Supernutrition may lead to the metabolic syndrome and increase IOP, arterial hypertension and serum steroid levels. The metabolic syndrome can also lead to decreased renal function, which can cause ac...
