Measurement of the Combined Levels of Serum Uric Acid and Alanine Aminotransferase and the Risk of Metabolic Syndrome in a Population Aged 60 Years or More in Northeastern China.

This study aimed to investigate the association between the combined levels of SUA and ALT and the risk of metabolic syndrome in residents ≥60 years of age in Northeastern China. MATERIAL AND METHODS A population study included nine communities in Shenyang, Northeast China, and 3,998 participants (1,434 men and 2,564 women) who were ≥60 years old. SUA and ALT measurements (levels 1-3) and clinical parameters were recorded. Metabolic syndrome was diagnosed according to the criteria of the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP ATP III). The association between the combined SUA and ALT levels and metabolic syndrome was determined by multivariate logistic regression analysis in tertiles that included Groups 1-9. RESULTS The prevalence of metabolic syndrome was 43.2% (men), and 61.9% (women), and the prevalence and odds ratio (OR) values increased with increasing SUA and ALT levels. The OR values of metabolic syndrome in the ALT Groups 2-3 were 1.329 (95% CI, 1.137-1.554) and 2.362 (95% CI, 2.006-2.781), and in the SUA Groups 2-3 the OR values were 1.718 (95% CI, 1.466-2.015) and 2.743 (95% CI, 2.310-3.256). The OR of the combined increase in SUA and ALT and metabolic syndrome in Groups 1-9 ranged from 1.494-5.889 (all, p

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...

Authors: Serradilla Martín M, Oliver Guillén JR, Palomares Cano A, Ramia Ángel JM Abstract The term "metabolic syndrome" refers to a group of alterations comprising central obesity reduced high-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations, elevated triglyceride concentrations, arterial hypertension, and hyperglycemia. This syndrome has established itself as one of the epidemics of the 21st century. Among its causative agents are insulin resistance, leptin and adiponectin, changes in microbiota, and epigenetics. Its incidence in the European population is estimated to be around 25%. ...

Eight Constitution Medicine (ECM) is a Korean constitutional medicine system that classifies people into 8 types: Pulmotonia (PUL), Colonotonia (COL), Renotonia (REN), Vesicotonia (VES), Pancreotonia (PAN), Gastrotonia (GAS), Hepatonia (HEP), and Cholecystonia (CHO). Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a major public health problem worldwide. We assessed the prevalence of and associations between ECM and MS. Cross-sectional convenience sample of 245 adults was used at a medical check-up center in Seoul, South Korea, from 2010 to 2015. Adults were classified into 1 of 8 constitutions by an ECM specialist. MS was diagnosed on the bas...

Conclusion: There was a high prevalence of MetS and abnormal ECG among the studied population. Abnormal ECG findings were more common in men with no differential association in people with or without MetS. However, a significant association existed between certain components of MetS and ECG abnormalities in men only. Male gender and HDLc were independent predictors of ECG Abnormalities.Keyword: Electrocardiography, metabolic syndrome, africans.

Abstract Vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) is associated with chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CCH) and memory deficits, and often occurs concurrently with metabolic syndrome (MetS). Despite their common occurrence, it is unknown whether CCH and MetS act synergistically to exacerbate VCI-associated pathology. Here, using male Sprague-Dawley rats, we examined the effects of a clinically relevant model of adolescent-onset MetS and adult-onset CCH on neuro-vascular outcomes, combining a cafeteria diet with a 2-vessel occlusion (2VO) model. Using longitudinal imaging, histology, and behavioural assessments, we identi...
