• primary
  • This study confirms that primary preventive interventions should be based on assessment of global CVD risk rather than on individual risk factors and that existing cardiovascular conditions are a clear indication for instituting preventive measures, regardless of risk factor status. (acpjc.org)
  • vascular
  • Since then, other classes of drugs for other risk factors have been tested and found to be valuable for preventing the occurrence or delaying progress of a wide variety of vascular diseases. (acpjc.org)
  • 1 In the presence of vascular risk factors, endothelial cells undergo phenotypic changes resulting in decreased nitric oxide bioactivity, thereby promoting vasoconstriction, inflammation, and thrombosis. (ahajournals.org)
  • 2 In human studies, risk factors for vascular disease have been associated with impaired vasomotor function, and individuals with abnormal vasodilator function have increased cardiovascular event rates. (ahajournals.org)
  • Evacetrapib evaluation for treatment of high-risk vascular disease was discontinued due to lack of efficacy, as had already happened in the past with two other CETP inhibitors (torcetrapib and dalcetrapib) due to increased deaths and little identifiable cardiovascular benefit (despite substantial increases in HDL). (wikipedia.org)
  • acute
  • The incidence of mechanical complications of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has gone down to less than 1% since the advent of percutaneous coronary intervention, but although mortality resulting from AMI has gone down in recent years, the burden remains high. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • Obese animals as well as animals fed a diet high in fat may be more prone to developing acute and chronic pancreatitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The breed which appears to be at risk for the acute form of pancreatitis is the Yorkshire Terrier, while Labrador Retrievers and miniature Poodles seem to have a decreased risk for the acute form of the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • adults
  • Conclusions The singularity of this study is that evacuation following the Fukushima disaster was found to be associated with a small increase in long-term hyperlipidaemia risk in adults. (bmj.com)
  • conditions
  • Those with other types of gastrointestinal conditions and dogs who have had previous pancreatitis attacks are also at increased risk for the disorder. (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • Methods Disease risks, measured in terms of pre-incident and post-incident relative risks, were examined and compared between evacuees and non-evacuees/temporary-evacuees. (bmj.com)
  • We also constructed logistic regression models to assess the impact of evacuation on the disease risks adjusted for covariates. (bmj.com)
  • However, its implementation for the analysis of otherwise healthy individuals for estimation of disease risk and medical interpretation is less clear. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Who is at Risk for Developing this Disease? (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • Background Recently, we reported a relation between plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) in children and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in their male relatives, suggesting that tHcy may partly explain the increased risk related to a family history of CVD. (ahajournals.org)
  • Other research focusing on young South Asians has shown that they have a higher risk of Diabetes and associated heart disease compared to other ethnic groups. (wikipedia.org)
  • Native American men have a high prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • factor
  • In general, a body fat of over 30% starts to be a health risk, whereas one over 40% becomes a severe risk factor that needs to be appropriately addressed. (health24.com)
  • M. Gupta and S. Brister, "Is South Asian ethnicity an independent cardiovascular risk factor? (hindawi.com)
  • Recent studies have shown that moderate elevation of plasma tHcy is an independent risk factor for CVD. (ahajournals.org)
  • It is suggested that genetics may play a part in the risk factor. (wikipedia.org)
  • women
  • Contemporary management of hyperlipidemia in women. (nih.gov)
  • Women who are at high risk should not use birth-control pills. (health24.com)
  • Women with values above 0.86 and men with values above 0.95 are at a very high risk of these diseases. (health24.com)
  • Or to make it even simpler: men with a waist circumference of greater than 102cm and women, greater than 88cm are placing their health at risk. (health24.com)
  • 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)
  • Prior to gender confirmation surgery, dosages of estrogen for transgender people are often higher than replacement dosages used for cisgender women. (wikipedia.org)
  • disorders
  • Radiation exposure is a public health issue, associated with long-term risks of disorders including, for example, eye cataracts and tumours. (bmj.com)
  • concentrations
  • Soft drinks have been linked to NAFLD due to high concentrations of fructose, which may be present either in high-fructose corn syrup or, in similar quantities, as a metabolite of sucrose. (wikipedia.org)
  • findings
  • Conclusions These findings suggest that a moderately elevated tHcy level may partly account for the contribution of the family history to risk of CVD in FH. (ahajournals.org)
  • management
  • Retrospective analysis of hyperlipidemia management in a transplant population. (nih.gov)
  • A hierarchy of steps for the management of high blood sugar control using an approach that balances age and comorbidities while minimizing the adverse effects of hypoglycemia and weight gain. (diabetesincontrol.com)
  • greatly
  • By creating "selective" NSAIDs that inhibit COX-2, but not COX-1, the same pain relief as traditional NSAIDs is offered, but with greatly reduced risk of fatal or debilitating peptic ulcers. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • Myricetin reduces the risk of skin tumorigenicity that is caused by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons like benzo(a)pyrene, a highly carcinogenic compound. (wikipedia.org)
