Prevalence of Hypertension among Urban Poor with and without Diabetes - A Study from South India.

Conclusion: Prevalence of hypertension was found to be higher among the diabetic group compared to the non- diabetic group (44.8% vs 42.6%), though the difference between the two was not very substantial. We therefore conclude that half of the urban poor are hypertensive even if they are not diabetic. PMID: 31793268 [PubMed - in process]

elsen Heglum Hammer Skogstad There is a plausible association between shift work and cardiovascular disease (CVD), which may be due to disruption of the circadian rhythm causing hormonal changes and metabolic disturbances, resulting in high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, diabetes, and being overweight. However, few studies have investigated the association between several consecutive long work shifts, including night shifts, and risk factors for developing CVD. Moreover, knowledge is lacking on factors that may modify or enhance this suggested relationship. The study period is planned from the third quarter ...

This study aimed to investigate the irisin levels in elderly patients with hypertension, diabetes mellitus type 2, and overweight and obesity, to investigate the possible association between irisin levels and anthropometric and biochemical parameters, and also to assess the irisin levels associated with a risk of hypertension, diabetes mellitus type 2, and overweight and obesity.MethodsA nested case-control study was conducted, with hypertension, diabetes mellitus type 2, and overweight and obesity being set as the case group; 71 elderly patients from the cohort were enrolled in each case group, and 71 healthy elderly from...

This study aims to understand the progression of two chronic diseases in the Australian health context. It specifically focuses on the comorbidity progression of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), as the prevalence of these chronic diseases in Australians is high. A research framework is proposed to understand and represent the progression of CVD in patients with T2DM using graph theory and social network analysis techniques. Two study cohorts (i.e., patients with both T2DM and CVD and patients with only T2DM) were selected from an administrative dataset obtained from an Australi...

Orgah, Yajun Duan, Buchang Zhao, Boli Zhang, Jihong Han, Yan ZhuAbstractMetabolic syndrome, such as diabetes mellitus, obesity, atherosclerosis, and high blood pressure (HBP), are closely linked pathophysiologically. However, current monotherapies for metabolic syndrome fail to target the multifactorial pathology via multiple mechanisms, as well as resolving the dysfunctionality of the cells and organs of the body. We aimed to provide a comprehensive and ...

ConclusionsResults revealed expert consensus and literature review agreement on a number of common modifiable risk factors for T2DM and dementia, as well as agreement on brain-related complications of diabetes. A number of other proposed shared risk factors did not reach consensus agreement suggesting a need for more high-quality studies to add to the evidence base.

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: Regional anthropometric indices are more closely correlated with PWV than BMI in hypertensive patients. WHtR presents the highest correlation with PWV beyond BMI. Registration: The study was registered in the French National Agency for Medicines and Health Products Safety (No. 2013-A00227-38) and was approved by the Advisory Committee for Protection of Persons in Biomedical Research.
