Obesity and Vitamin D Deficiency: Trends to Promote a More Proatherogenic Cardiometabolic Risk Profile
Vitamin D deficiency is associated with cardiometabolic risk factors (eg, hypertension, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, and dyslipidemia). We studied 50 obese patients (body mass index [BMI]: 43.5 ...
High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein and Statin Initiation
The assessment of cardiovascular risk and treatment of cardiovascular diseases are major public health issues worldwide. Inflammation is now recognized as a key regulatory process that links multiple risk factors for ...
Vitamin D and Dysfunctional Adipose Tissue in Obesity
Vitamin D deficiency and dysfunctional adipose tissue are involved in the development of cardiometabolic disturbances (eg, hypertension, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, and dyslipidemia). We evaluated ...
Chronic Venous Disease and Comorbidities
We report the relations between comorbidities and chronic venous disease. In this cross-sectional study, information was gathered from 1679 Serbian patients. The majority (65.0%) of patients were women. Mild forms of chronic ...
Correlation of Carotid Artery Disease Severity and Vasomotor Response of Cerebral Blood Vessels
We assessed reactivity of cerebral vessels on hypercapnia in patients with carotid occlusive disease. The effects of vascular risk factors on carotid atherosclerosis and vasomotor reactivity (VMR) of cerebral arterioles ...
Estradiol In Vivo Induces Changes in Cardiomyocytes Size in Obese Rats
We studied the in vivo effects of estradiol on size and biochemical parameters of cardiomyocytes in pathophysiological conditions such as obesity and insulin resistance. Male Wistar rats were normally fed (controls, n = ...
