High blood pressure: Can you drink alcohol if you want to lower your reading?
HIGH blood pressure affects around one in four people in the UK, which is around 12.5 million people, and left untreated serious complications can occur. Diet can affect a person's reading, and with the holiday season fast approaching, what are the best alcoholic drinks and which, if not all, should be avoided?

Conclusions: Even low doses of alcohol can lead to the development of hypertension, particularly in Asian men. Our findings could serve as additional evidence for developing an appropriate preventive strategy in each region. PMID: 31795024 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
DiscussionThis overview will assess current evidence from systematic reviews for the association between cadmium exposure and risk of T2DM and other metabolic morbidities. This overview may be helpful for policy-makers and healthcare teams aiming to mitigate T2DM risk in populations at risk of cadmium exposure.Systematic review registrationPROSPERO CRD42019125956
Director's Seminar Series Alcohol and substance use disorders represent the leading causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide. There is a crucial need to develop novel effective treatments for patients struggling with addiction. Dr. Leggio's laboratory conducts preclinical and human studies to identify possible novel medications for addiction. His group uses a combination of state of the art, innovative bio behavioral, neuroimaging and pharmacological procedures performed under well-controlled human laboratory conditions. Collaborative bed-to-bench approaches are also employed using behavioral, pharmacological, and trans...
Drinking alcohol causes damage to your health in both the short term and long term, even for moderate drinkers. For individuals who suffer from addiction to alcohol and frequently drink in excess, these risks become higher. Knowing the risks of drinking alcohol is important to help avoid drinking to excess and reduce the likelihood of these risks. Short-Term Risks of Drinking Alcohol There are many short-term risks that occur when drinking alcohol. These risks can happen to anyone, including individuals suffering from alcohol use disorder, or individuals who are drinking for the very first time. Injuries When you drink al...
ConclusionIn this nationally representative study, 4 modifiable risk factors (BMI, the DASH diet, alcohol use, and diuretic use) could be used to individually account for a notable proportion of hyperuricemia cases. However, the corresponding serum urate variance explained by these risk factors was very small and paradoxically masked their high prevalences, providing real ‐life empirical evidence for its limitations in assessing common risk factors.
Conclusion: Prevalence of hypertension for the study cohort was lower than general population which may be the healthy worker effect. Obesity, alcohol use, and smoking rates however, were slightly higher in the study cohort. Reducing the prevalence of risk factors will require significant resources.
Conclusions: Disparities in hypertension control among regions and ethnic groups suggested inadequate screening and treatment, especially in stock-raising regions and Kazakh populations. Control of alcohol intake, smoking, and obesity should be at high priority of health promotion. PMID: 31781382 [PubMed]
Conclusion: We found that serum carbohydrate antigen 19-9 level was positively and independently associated with arterial stiffness and coronary artery calcification.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of repeated binge drinking and moderate alcohol consumption in young adults on arterial stiffness and sympathetic activity. Methods: We enrolled 49 healthy young adults, free of cardiovascular diseases (25 men; age: 23.5 ± 0.4 years; BMI: 23.4 ± 0.4 kg/m2; mean ± S.E). Individuals included were those with a history of repeated binge drinking (>2 years duration; n = 20), drank at moderate levels (MODs,>5 years duration; n = 16) and abstained from alcohol (last 2–3 years; n = 13). Arterial stiffness...
