Not getting enough magnesium? You might be at risk of heart disease, depression

(Natural News) Being deficient in nutrients comes with serious health risks. Having low levels of magnesium, for instance, can increase your risk of cardiovascular diseases and depression. In a study published in the journal Atherosclerosis, researchers found that people with low magnesium levels are at risk of developing peripheral artery disease (PAD). When the participants...

Conclusions: The results of this study demonstrated that more than a half of patients with diabetes had anxiety and/or depression and one third had Type D personality, sustaining that monitoring of emotional state and depression should be included in the therapeutic plan of these patients. New treatment strategies are needed to improve the well-being of diabetic patients with psychological comorbidities. PMID: 31491990 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Embolism associated with asymptomatic carotid stenosis shows circadian variation with highest rates 4–6 h before midday. This corresponds with peak circadian incidence of stroke and other vascular complications. These and ASED Study results show that monitoring frequency, duration, and time of day are important in ES detection. Introduction Transcranial Doppler (TCD) detected microembolism in the ipsilateral middle cerebral artery (MCA) may help stratify the risk of stroke and other arterial disease complications in persons with advanced (≥60%) asymptomatic carotid stenosis. If so, this techniqu...

In this study, we examined the benefits of early-onset, lifelong AET on predictors of health, inflammation, and cancer incidence in a naturally aging mouse model. Lifelong, voluntary wheel-running (O-AET; 26-month-old) prevented age-related declines in aerobic fitness and motor coordination vs. age-matched, sedentary controls (O-SED). AET also provided partial protection against sarcopenia, dynapenia, testicular atrophy, and overall organ pathology, hence augmenting the 'physiologic reserve' of lifelong runners. Systemic inflammation, as evidenced by a chronic elevation in 17 of 18 pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokin...

Poor sleep is bad for your heart AND your brain! An article about poor sleep and the build-up of plaque in the body caught my eye. The study is remarkable in that it is the first study: “to show that objectively measured sleep is independently associated with atherosclerosis throughout the body,” according to José Ordovás, director of nutrition and genomics at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University. More about that in a moment. What really caught my attention was further down in the article: A lab-based research study tied the lack of sleep with severe cog...

The objective of this study is to evaluate the association between health status in outpatients with COPD according to COMCOLD score and the GOLD 2017 groups according to symptoms (B and D vs. A and C) and exacerbations (C and D vs. A and B). 439 patients were included. The average score was 2.4 ± 3. 48% of cases had a COMCOLD score>0. The most symptomatic patients (B and D vs. A and C) had a higher score: 3 ± 3.3 vs. 1.3 ± 2.1 (p

AbstractThe EUROASPIRE surveys (EUROpean Action on Secondary Prevention through Intervention to Reduce Events) demonstrated that most European coronary patients fail to achieve lifestyle, risk factor and therapeutic targets. Here we report on the 2-year incidence of hard cardiovascular (CV) endpoints in the EUROASPIRE IV cohort. EUROASPIRE IV (2012 –2013) was a large cross-sectional study undertaken at 78 centres from selected geographical areas in 24 European countries. Patients were interviewed and examined at least 6 months following hospitalization for a coronary event or procedure. Fatal and non-fatal CV ev...

We describe comorbidity, analytical, functional and radiological data and mortality.Results: We study 31 patients, 11 males, age of 70 ± 9.4 years, 18/31 were former or smokers. RA was diagnosed 7,9 ± 8,6 years before the ILD. ILD was diagnosed before RA in 10%. The BMI was 27 ± 4. Rheumatoid factor (RF) and anti-ccp were positive in 86% (25/29) and 77% (20/26) with median values of 280 ± 376 and 751 ± 821. One patient had both antibodies negative. CRP and the ESR median values were 2.5 ± 6.6 and 42 ± 23, respectively. Concomitant diseases were, 19/31 (61%) hypertension, 5/3...

Abstract People with severe mental illness (SMI) - schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder - appear at risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD), but a comprehensive meta-analysis is lacking. We conducted a large-scale meta-analysis assessing the prevalence and incidence of CVD; coronary heart disease; stroke, transient ischemic attack or cerebrovascular disease; congestive heart failure; peripheral vascular disease; and CVD-related death in SMI patients (N=3,211,768) versus controls (N=113,383,368) (92 studies). The pooled CVD prevalence in SMI patients (mean age 50 years) was 9.9% (95% CI: 7.4-...

Conclusion Current population risk assessment of dietary Cd intake relies on estimates of dietary Cd intake and/or maintenance of threshold levels of urinary Cd that should protect the kidney from Cd-induced damage. Risk assessment using dietary Cd intake estimates has been questioned because they show only a marginal correlation with urinary Cd levels, a well-founded measure of lifetime intakes. Blood Cd levels, however, show a correlation with urinary Cd levels, and they could thus be of value in risk assessment; blood Cd levels ≥ 1 μg/L were associated with CKD, while blood Cd levels above 0.5 μg/L were associa...

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an entity with high morbidity and mortality worldwide. COPD mortality for 2020 is predicted at third place, second only to ischemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease (CVD). COPD patients have a higher risk of morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular causes, such as ischemic heart disease, heart failure, peripheral artery disease, diabetes mellitus, depression, thromboembolism, pulmonary hypertension, renal failure, cardiac arrhythmias and obesity.
