• primary
  • A holistic strategy focused on population with high risk CVD and based on the current China public health reform is suggested in the context of primary care. (www.gov.uk)
  • Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia in pediatric patients Homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia Hypertriglyceridemia (Fredrickson Type IV) Primary dysbetalipoproteinemia (Fredrickson Type III) Combined hyperlipidemia Primary prevention of heart attack, stroke, and need for revascularization procedures in patients who have risk factors such as age, smoking, high blood pressure, low HDL-C, and a family history of early heart disease, but have not yet developed clinically evident coronary heart disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • The primary advantage of duodenal switch (DS) surgery is that its combination of moderate intake restriction with substantial calorie malabsorption results in a higher percentage of excess weight loss versus a purely restrictive gastric bypass for all individuals In a Systemic Meta Analysis of the weight loss surgical procedures Buckwald et al. (wikipedia.org)
  • Phosphorus
  • The minerals and trace elements (DOM) present in DOW have three important functions: Provide the structure to our organs, tissues and bones - calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, fluorine and sulfur. (wikipedia.org)
  • sodium
  • The electrolyte form facilitates body fluid activity in tissues to maintain fluid balance, acid-base balance, membrane permeability, tissue irritability (including nerve transmission and muscle contraction) - sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium in blood, all present in DOMs. (wikipedia.org)
  • norepinephrine
  • The mechanism of this effect is uncertain but it may involve effects on 'whole body' or renal autoregulation, or direct vasodilator actions either through inhibition of carbonic anhydrase or by desensitizing the vascular smooth muscle cells to the rise in intracellular calcium induced by norepinephrine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment
  • This study aims to describe the characters of the rural population with high CVD risk regarding their clinical indicators, disease patterns, drug treatment and adherence. (www.gov.uk)
  • Those who were identified with a CVD risk of 20% or higher were selected for a face-to-face questionnaire survey regarding their diagnosed disease and drug treatment. (www.gov.uk)
  • For high blood pressure it is often recommended as a first line treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • This effect is associated with positive calcium balance and is associated with an increase in bone mineral density and reductions in fracture rates attributable to osteoporosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • density
  • The high mineral density is attributed to the depth related pressure and the change in temperature from 20 °C+ at the surface to 8 °C at 600 meters depth generates the movement of this layer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nutrients
  • DOW contains over 70 mineral nutrients and trace elements including magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca) and potassium (K) in their bio ionic form. (wikipedia.org)
  • doses
  • Dose increases of statins in turn may result in decreased tolerability and potential safety concerns which contribute to the high discontinuation rates of statins and their prescription at low, and often ineffective, doses. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • blood pressure
  • High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. (mayoclinic.org)
  • 453 individuals were identified as high risk of CVD, with an average age of 53 years, 62% males, 50% smoking rate and average systolic blood pressure of 161 mmHg. (www.gov.uk)
  • Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ or HCT) is a diuretic medication often used to treat high blood pressure and swelling due to fluid build up. (wikipedia.org)
  • concentrations
  • Gender: Plasma concentrations are generally higher in women than in men, but there is no clinically significant difference in the extent of LDL reduction between men and women. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • V-BID generally refers to health insurers' efforts to structure enrollee cost-sharing and other health plan design elements to encourage enrollees to consume high-value clinical services - those that have the greatest potential to positively impact enrollee health. (wikipedia.org)
  • Much like VBBD and benefit-based copays, V-BID is built on the principle of lowering or removing financial barriers to essential, high-value clinical services. (wikipedia.org)
  • Condition
  • Other systemic conditions may be associated, such as Schnyder crystalline corneal dystrophy, an autosomal dominant condition frequently reported with hyperlipidemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Weight loss and substitution of high-impact for low-impact exercise can help slow progression of the condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • prevent
  • Conclusion The majority of the high risk population in our setting of rural China had already been diagnosed with a CVD related disease, but very few took any drugs, and less still took highly effective drugs to prevent CVD. (www.gov.uk)
  • A Mayo Clinic review from 2011 showed that a high-fiber diet can prevent diverticular disease. (wikipedia.org)
