This study aimed to determine the prevalence of hypertension, the recommended anti-hypertensive therapy and the percentage of hypertensive patients who had achieved the blood pressure (BP) target according to 2017 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) versus JNC7 and 8 guidelines, among Iranian population. Data of participants aged ≥20 years from the fifth phase (2012–2015) of the Tehran lipid and glucose study (N = 10,576) were analyzed, using survey analysis. The ...

We estimated the average numbers of years lived with and without cardiovascular disease (CVD) in normal weight, overweight, and obese individuals, aged ≥30 years. A total of 7529 participants were recruited. The multi-state Markov model was used to obtain hazard ratios (HRs) for three transitions (CVD free to nonfatal CVD, CVD free to all-cause death, and nonfatal CVD to all-cause death) stratified by body mass index (BMI) categories at baseline and adjusted for confounders including sex, age, s...

Abstract Background Diabetes is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, especially among middle and low income nations. Many diabetic complications and comorbidities are attributable to poor glycemic control. The aim of this study was to update and extend the national diabetes reports on the status of comorbidities, diabetes care and complications in Iran. Moreover, we investigated the risk factors of poor glycemic control in the Iranian population. Methods National datab...

Abstract Aim Smoking is among the top leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. To date, studies on the association between smoking and diabetic complications and metabolic control have shown conflicting results. In this study we aimed to assess the association of smoking with micro and macro-vascular complication of diabetes, lipid and glycemic indices. Methods We used NPPCD database of 99,575 adult patients with diabetes across Iran. Multiple Logistic regression models were used to ...

Abstract Background Primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease is of utmost importance in the management of patients with diabetes. Objectives We studied a group of Iranian patients with type2 diabetes to provide an overview of the current status of secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease in the Middle East. Methods This is a cross-sectional study of 2029 Patients with type2 diabetes including 323 patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) were recruited. Achievement of g...

Abstract Background Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with an oxidative milieu that leads to increased lipid peroxidation. Main focus of this study was to understand levels and correlations of two oxidative stress indices, malondialdehyde (MDA) and oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) levels, in diabetes associated oxidative stress. Moreover we examined the impact of different HDL-C levels on this correlation. Material and methods A total of 151 patients with T2DM and 45 healthy...

Background: We investigated the association of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) with Framingham risk score (FRS), and actual cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). We also assessed improvement in FRS for prediction of CVD after inclusion of eGFR and albuminuria. Methods: A total of 571 patients with T2DM and mean age 55 were divided into 2 groups based on the presence of CVD. Participants without CVD were then divided into three groups according to FRS. ...

Despite few studies on intracellular heat shock protein70, the clinical association between insulin resistance and extracellular heat shock protein70 (eHSP70) is not well studied. In the current study, we examined the association between homeostatic model assessment-insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) and eHSP70 in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and healthy controls. A total of 145 patients with T2DM and 41 matched healthy controls were selected. Patients and controls were divided based on waist ...
