Dyslipidemia is a disruption in the amount of lipids in the blood.
Those with a normal body mass index (BMI) with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are more likely to have cardiovascular disease than those who are overweight or living with obesity, according to research selected for presentation at Digestive Disease Week 2022.
Researchers assessed the efficacy and safety of using lithium for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) treatment.
A team of Italian scientists has presented case reports of five coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients undergoing emergency surgery for intestinal ischemia.
Based on data for 3,587 adolescents aged 12-19 who took part in the 2011-16 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) in the United States, researchers at the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil have calculated the impact of consuming ultra-processed foods on the risk of obesity.
Researchers investigate if a decline in exercise capabilities is due to deconditioning during infection or long-term reductions in ability due to COVID-19.
In a new study, researchers demonstrated that they can significantly lower cardiovascular risk for patients with severe mental illness (SMI) by using a clinical decision support system that prompts doctors to provide individualized informational handouts about a patient's cardiovascular risk and treatment recommendations.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has become an epidemic, similar to the non-communicable diseases cancer, obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
In a new study, researchers have been investigating the effects of megadoses of corticosteroids on hospitalized COVID-19 patients.
Patients with metabolic syndrome have significantly worse hospitalization and mortality rates due to COVID-19.
Metabolic-associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) is a growing global health challenge and poses a substantial economic burden. A large-scale epidemiologic study in China has identified links between long-term exposure to ambient air pollution and MAFLD.
Researchers from Japan have found that lifestyle habits play an important role in predicting the risk of developing metabolic syndrome in non-obese individuals, not only obese individuals.
Adolescence is a critical period for the evolution of cardiometabolic risk factors that are largely influenced by diet and lifestyle. Understanding these risk factors is essential to developing effective dietary guidance for disease prevention targeting this critical age period.
Women’s heart health has been the focus of a recent study by Monash University, with researchers finding that proportional carbohydrate intake and not saturated fat was significantly associated with cardiovascular disease benefit in Australian women.
A team of international scientists has recently determined the association between gout and risk of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) related death in a large cohort of patients. Their findings reveal that gout can significantly increase the risk of COVID-19 and related mortality, with women having a higher risk than men. The study is currently available on the medRxiv* preprint server.
Researchers explored the possible risk factors for the development and persistence of longer post-COVID-19 sequelae.
The Biopsychosocial Health lab from Wayne State University has been awarded $3,590,488 from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health to conduct a project titled "Stress and Cardiovascular Risk Among Urban African American adults: A Multilevel, Mixed Methods Approach."
A new study presents the benefits of licorice, an age-old herbal remedy, to treat COVID-19 at all stages.
People with type 2 diabetes diagnosed during youth have a high risk of developing complications at early ages and have a greater chance of multiple complications within 15 years after diagnosis.
It's long been known that a high-fat diet can lead to clogged arteries, but we have only recently begun to learn in detail how the process works. A new study in experimental mice could go a long way to finding treatments to keep arteries open and flowing.
Thyroid hormones are amino acid-based molecules produced by the thyroid gland. Involved in direct or indirect regulation of key metabolic pathways, these molecules play critical roles in the development and normal functioning of the body.
