Association between Cyclothymic Affective Temperament and Age of Onset of Hypertension. Int J Hypertens. 2019;2019:9248247 Authors: Körösi B, Vecsey-Nagy M, Kolossváry M, Nemcsik-Bencze Z, Szilveszter B, László A, Batta D, Gonda X, Merkely B, Rihmer Z, Maurovich-Horvat P, Eörsi D, Torzsa P, Nemcsik J Abstract Affective temperaments represent a biologically stable core of emotional reactivity and have previously been associated with hypertension and arterial stiffening. The age, when hypertension is initiated, is influenced by different factors, but the role of personality traits in this regard is not clarified yet. Our aim was to study the association between affective temperaments and the age at onset of hypertension. In this cross-sectional study, 353 patients were included. After the evaluation of history, patients completed the Temperament Evaluation of Memphis, Pisa, Paris and San Diego Autoquestionnaire. We used linear regression analysis to identify predictors of the age of onset of hypertension in the whole cohort and in male and female subpopulations. The independent predictors of the age at onset of hypertension were male sex (B = -4.57 (95% CI = -1.40 to -7.74)), smoking (B = -4.31 (-7.41 to -1.22)), and positive family history (B = -6.84 (-10.22 to -3.45)). In women, cyclothymic temperament score was an independent predictor of the initiation of hyperte...

Authors: Jun SH, Shin WK, Kim Y Abstract BACKGROUND: Soybean food consumption has been considered as a possible way to lower incidence of cardiometabolic syndrome (CMS) among Asians. However, results from studies investigating its efficacy on CMS in Asians have been inconsistent. METHODS: We analyzed the association between soybean intake frequency and prevalence of CMS based on data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2007 to 2011. Data of 9,287 women aged 20 to 64 years were analyzed. Food frequency questionnaire was used to assess soybean food consumption frequency. General linear...
