The role of dietary patterns, in cardiovascular diseases has been challenged. The role of breakfast as an element of balance energy intake has gained research interest. However, the effects of dietary patterns related to breakfast consumption on vascular function are unknown. We explored the association of breakfast consumption habits with arterial wall elastic properties and carotid atherosclerosis.In this cross-sectional study we enrolled 2043 inhabitants of the Corinthia region in Greece. Car...

Background: Arterial stiffness is a well-established surrogate marker of vascular properties in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). We aimed to investigate whether optimization of DM2 therapy with novel antiglycemic agents additional to metformin, may improve arterial wall properties. Methods: We enrolled 99 consecutive patients (male gender=63.3%) receiving metformin and still not achieving the therapeutic targets. Subjects were assigned to age and sex matched equal groups (n=33/group...

Background: Arterial stiffness is a prominent macrovascular complication in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). Antiplatelet therapy is the cornerstone of CVD therapy. There is little evidence about the influence of antiglycemic agents on arterial wall properties and prothrombotic state. Methods: We enrolled 80 consecutive patients (males=64.4%), aged 64.19 ± 8.82 years receiving either metformin plus another antiglycemic agent such as sulphonylureas, DPP-4i, GLP-1 agonists, insulin, o...

Background: Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) exert a higher risk for thrombotic events. Platelet reactivity may be used to assess prothrombotic state in patients with cardiovascular disease. We aimed to investigate whether the administration of novel antiglycemic agents may influence platelet reactivity in these patients. Methods: We enrolled 99 patients (male=63.3%) receiving metformin for DM2 who did not achieve therapeutic targets under current treatment. Subjects were assigned to...

Introduction: Arterial stiffness significantly contributes to atherosclerosis progression and adversely affect cardiovascular prognosis Hypothesis: Increased physical activity (PA) may attenuate the impact of several risk factors on arterial stiffness. Methods: In the context of the ongoing Corinthia study 772 subjects (407 males, aged 30-98 years) were assessed. We evaluated PA using the self-reported International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) and we calculated totals METS for each pa...
