Introduction Although cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality of Filipino–Americans, conventional CVD risk calculators may not be accurate for this population. CVD risk scores of a group of Filipino–American women (FAW) were measured using the major risk calculators. Secondly, the sensitivity of the various calculators to obesity was determined.

Abstract Objective Although few studies have examined cardiovascular disease in Asian-American subgroups separately, limited data in Asian Americans strongly suggest that some subgroups are at increased risk. The present study examined modifiable cardiovascular risk factor profiles as a function of Asian ethnicity. Methods This descriptive cross-sectional pilot study recruited Asian-American women ( N =147) in northeast Florida including Cambodians ( n =39), Chinese ( n =36), Filipinos ( n =49),...

Objective:Although elevated body mass index (BMI) increases the risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes universally, the BMI associated with increased risk for these two diseases needs to be established for Filipino American women (FAW). The relationship of BMI with diabetes and other CVD risk factors in FAW wasinvestigatedto determine if BMI levels less than the conventional 25 kg/m 2 are associated with increased CVD risk factors. Methods:In a cross-sectional study conducted in four...

The Trp719Arg allele of KIF6 rs20455, a putative risk factor for CHD especially in those with elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), was investigated in Filipino-American women (FAW, ) participating in health screenings in four cities. The rs20455 genotype of each subject was determined by a multiplex assay using a Luminex-OLA procedure. The risk allele Trp719Arg was present in 77% of the subjects. The genotype distribution was 23% Trp/Trp, 51% Arg/Trp, and 26% Arg/Arg. Genotype d...

OBJECTIVE: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in women of Filipino ethnicity. The objective of our work was to determine if metabolic syndrome (MetS), a modifiable CVD risk factor, differs in women as a function of country of residency and to determine if, CVD prevention strategies need to differ for these groups of Filipino women. DESIGN: Data were collected in community-based health screenings for this cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS: PARTICIPANT...

Healthcare providers should be concerned with improving the quality of life (QOL) of patients with heart failure (HF) because disease-specific QOL is linked to disease progression. The present study investigated the significance of elevated b-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), NYHA classification and depression to HF-related QOL to develop better management strategies. Outpatient subjects with left ventricular systolic dysfunction (n=108; mean age=64.9±12) completed the self-administered Minnesota ...
