Abstract This study examined weight loss during an extensive 1-year lifestyle programme in primary care in Finland in overweight subjects (n=134, age 18-69 years; BMI >30, or BMI >25 with a comorbidity that would benefit from weight loss) between 2009 and 2013 in a single arm design. The programme included four medical doctor visits, five sessions by a dietitian (advice on diet and on-location shopping behaviour), cooking classes, exercise supervised by personal trainer, and group discussions. A...

Abstract: Essential hypertension is associated with several alterations in arterial function. A wealth of information from animal models is available concerning hypertensive changes in the mesenteric circulation, while only few studies have examined human mesenteric arterial function. The tone of isolated mesenteric arterial segments (outer diameter 0.7–0.9 mm) was examined from individuals with high (n=17) or normal (n=22) blood pressure, grouped using the current definition of elevated blood p...

Experimental hypertension is associated with several functional alterations of vascular endothelium and smooth muscle, but relatively few studies have examined the control of arterial tone in isolated vascular preparations from patients with essential hypertension. Therefore, we compared functional characteristics in vitro of distal ring segments of the mesenteric artery from 17 hypertensive and 22 normotensive humans. Arterial constrictor responses induced by cumulative addition of Ca2+ in the ...
