Abstract Background and Aims The Great Leap Forward Famine in 1959-1961 was the world’s largest famine, and its adverse long-term effects might be more obvious in the coming decade with the ageing of the exposed populations. The aim of this study was to examine whether the Chinese Famine modified the effect of hyperglycaemia on cardiovascular disease (CVD). Methods and Results We used data from 4337 adults born between 1952 and 1964 from the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS...

abstract Background and Aims The novel nutraceutical combination containing red yeast rice (monacolin K 3.3 mg), Berberis aristata cortex extract (Berberine 531.25 mg) and Morus alba leaves extract (1-deoxynojirimycin 4 mg) is effective in the management of elevated plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of the three components on proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9), a key regulator of LDL receptor ...
Abstract Background and Aims Undernutrition in early life may have a lifelong effect on adult health. The conclusions on the association of exposure to famine with the risk of hypertension were inconsistent. The aim of this study was to examine the association of exposure to the Chinese famine with incident hypertension. Methods and Results Data were obtained from the China Health and Nutrition Survey. All included participants were divided into five birth cohorts: no exposure, born in or after ...

Abstract Background and Aims, Obesity and insulin levels can influence each other by metabolism. However, their temporal sequences and influence on hypertension are generally unknown, especially in Chinese adults. Recently, some scholars have proposed that triglycerides-glucose index (TyG) is an important indicator of insulin resistance. The study aims to describe the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and TyG index and its impact on hypertension. Methods and Results, A total of 4081 adu...

Abstract Aims Some observational studies have found that habitual coffee and caffeine consumption might reduce the risk of atrial fibrillation (AF). We conducted a two-sample Mendelian randomization study to explore the potential association between coffee consumption and AF. Methods This study was based on summary-level data from the Atrial Fibrillation Consortium, including 588 190 individuals (65 446 cases and 522 744 non-cases). Nine single-nucleotide polymorphisms associated with coffee con...

Abstract Objective L-carnitine has an important role in fatty acid metabolism and could therefore act as an adjuvant agent in the improvement of dyslipidemia. The purpose of present systematic review and meta-analysis was to critically assess the efficacy of L-carnitine supplementation on lipid profiles. Methods We performed a systematic search of all available randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in the following databases: Scopus, PubMed, ISI Web of Science, The Cochrane Library. Mean differenc...

Abstract Background Regulatory T cells (Tregs) play an important role in cardiovascular complications with the immune response. However, the role of Tregs in high fat diet (HFD)-induced myocardial fibrosis has not been fully elucidated to date. Therefore, we investigated whether HFD suppresses Tregs activation in the myocardium of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs), which aggregates myocardial fibrosis. Methods and Results Eight-week-old male SHRs were fed to either HFD or control diet (CHO)...
Abstract Objective There is no agreement about which index of adiposity and/or body composition is the most accurate in identifying the metabolic syndrome (METS). The aim of our study was to compare the accuracy of the different indexes in order to recognize the most reliable. Study Design We evaluated 1332 obese children and adolescents (778 females and 554 males), aged 14.4 ± 1.8 yrs., Body Mass Index (BMI) standard deviation scores (SDS) 2.99 ± 0.55, followed at the Istituto Auxologico Italia...

Abstract Background and aims Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is characterized by excessive hepatic fat accumulation. Increased hepatic saturated fats and decreased hepatic polyunsaturated fats may be particularly lipotoxic, contributing to metabolic dysfunction. We compared hepatic lipid subspecies in adults with and without NAFLD, and examined links with hallmark metabolic and clinical characteristics of NAFLD. Methods and results Nineteen adults with NAFLD (total hepatic fat:18.8 ± 0....

Abstract Background and aims The relationship between serum total cholesterol (TC) and mortality remains inconsistent. Additionally, intra-individual variability of cholesterol has been of increasing interest as a new indicator for health outcomes. We aimed to examine the association between TC and its variability and risk of mortality. Methods and results We performed a retrospective cohort study with 122,645 individuals aged over 40 years in Ningbo, China. The intra-individual variability was ...
