Exercise to mitigate cardiometabolic disorders after spinal cord injury

Curr Opin Pharmacol. 2021 Dec 2;62:4-11. doi: 10.1016/j.coph.2021.10.004. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe cardiometabolic disorder (CMD) is a syndrome caused by coalescing of cardiovascular, endocrine, pro-thrombotic, and inflammatory health risks. Together, these risks confer a hazard as health-threatening as coronary artery disease or type2 diabetes, whether an individual has a diagnosis of coronary disease or diabetes, or not. CMD is most often defined by three or more of five clinically assessed risk components, notably obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, and depressed high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. Evidence currently suggests that worldwide CMD is expanding at a pandemic rate, and it is known that people living with spinal cord injuries (SCI) qualify for the diagnosis at more than 50% of the prevalence of a non-disabled cohort. A recent evidence-based guideline warned of the current state of CMD following SCI and recommended early lifestyle intervention incorporating exercise and prudent nutrition as a first-line disease countermeasure. This monograph will define the CMD following SCI, explore its underlying pathophysiology, and provide evidence that recommends exercise for CMD health hazards after SCI.PMID:34864560 | DOI:10.1016/j.coph.2021.10.004

This study used data from 2 cross-sectional studies conducted in the neurology departments of 3 hospitals in Guangzhou, China. In total, 110 hypertensive stroke patients were recruited in stage I (2008-2009), and 119 hypertensive stroke patients were recruited in stage II (2018-2019). Patients' stroke knowledge was measured by the Stroke Knowledge Questionnaire. Patients' prestroke health behavior was measured by the Health Behavior Scale for Stroke Patients. RESULTS: The total score of prestroke health behaviors significantly increased over the decade (P
