To examine the trends in chronic conditions after accounting for temporal differences in body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC). Pooled cycles (1999-2014) of the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) were analysed (n = 36 959). The models were adjusted for caloric intake, smoking, medications use and physical activity. The prevalence of diabetes increased in women with general or abdominal obesity (BMI*time; WC*time, P .05), whereas for a given WC, there was ...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the leading causes of death in Canada. CVD risk factors and outcome data are used to determine trends of disease risk to inform public health program planning for prevention and control of disease and risk reduction or elimination. Recent efforts to map CVD and its associated risk factors at the health region level have provided further insights into variation in determinants across populations. In this chapter, geographic information system (GIS) and spati...

Abstract Background Reactive hyperemia peripheral arterial tonometry and flow-mediated dilation are common non-invasive measures of peripheral vascular function. However, their relationship with the coronary circulation, particularly in coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD), is unclear. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to compare these non-invasive measurements to coronary microvascular function following endothelial independent, endothelial-dependent, and sympathetically-mediated phar...

Summary Background & Aims Previous studies assessing the prognosis of metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) have been limited by a lack of a harmonized definition of MHO phenotype. Furthermore, obesity is a risk factor for vitamin D deficiency and low vitamin D status has been associated with a higher risk of mortality; however, few studies have evaluated the joint association between vitamin D, metabolic health phenotype, and mortality risk. Using a harmonized definition, we investigated whether ...

OBJECTIVE: The age at natural menopause has subsequent health implications. Earlier age at natural menopause is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, and stroke. Despite extensive study, no clear and conclusive association between anthropometric measures and age at natural menopause has emerged. This study aims to assess whether baseline and/or longitudinal changes in adiposity are associated with age at natural menopause. METHODS: In all, 2,030 premenopausal women from the ...

Abstract The predictive value of total 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D, a biomarker of vitamin D status) in relation to lifetime risk of cardiometabolic mortality is not known. The purpose of this study was to determine the association between standardized and annualized total 25(OH)D levels and lifetime risk for cardiometabolic mortality in middle- to older-aged adults. In this study, we followed up 7958 participants in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 1988 to 1994 (...

Abstract The importance of sleep for the maintenance of a healthy body weight and cardiometabolic health is increasingly recognized. However, the extent to which sleep affects abdominal obesity and metabolic syndrome, and how much these relationships vary in subpopulations are less well known. The relationship between sleep and cardiometabolic health is also affected by the clustering of both movement and nonmovement behaviors, and other lifestyle factors, such as diet. This chapter provides a r...
