Abstract The results of 15 yr of follow-up of white males at risk in the Los Angeles Heart Study are reported. The total number of new cases of coronary heart disease is divided into 2 groups: (i) persons who were diagnosed myocardial infarction, or sudden death (MI), and (ii) persons who were diagnosed as angina pectoris (AP). The risk factors studied were age, serum cholesterol level, blood pressure and wt. index. Two techniques of analysis, the classical method and discriminant function analysis, are used and compared. In both methods of data analysis high serum cholesterol is clearly associated with the development of MI. None of the 3 factors studied had an appreciable influence on AP.

In some inivestigationls, comparison of the means of a variate y in two study g;roups may be biased because y is related to a variable x whose distribution differs in the two groups. A frequently used device for trying to remove this bias is adjustment by subclassification. The range of x is divided into c subclasses. Weighted means of the subclass means of y are compared, using the same weights for each study group. The effectiveness of this procedure in removing bias depends on several factors...

Abstract Higher systolic blood pressures were found among similar age groups measured in 1962 compared to those found in 1950 in the Los Angeles Heart Study. Analyses were performed to insure that these differences were real and not due to measurement differences or to self selection. Covariance analyses indicated that higher blood pressures occurred among subjects who reported that they had not eaten for 2 hr or more or for 5 hr or more prior to examination as well as among non-smokers, alcohol...

Using Monte Carlo methods, the relationship is investigated between the actual probability of correct classification using the calculated linear discriminant function and the estimate of this probability which can be easily obtained by estimating the Miahalanobis distance between the two populations. Graphs are given for obtaining conservative confidence intervals for the probabilities of correct classification, given the estimated probability. For a given number of variates used to calculate th...

Abstract Results during more than ten years' follow-up of the Los Angeles Heart Study population reveal differences in factors associated with risk of myocardial infarction or sudden death compared to factors associated with angina pectoris. High incidence of myocardial infarction was related primarily to high serum cholesterol levels, and angina pectoris to hypertension. Relative weight had little or no effect on these risks other than accounted for by the association of weight with serum chole...

Background: Physical stress echocardiography is an established methodology for diagnosis and risk stratification of coronary artery disease in patients with physical capacity. In obese (body mass index ≥ 30 kg/m2) the usefulness of pharmacological stress echocardiography has been demonstrated; however, has not been reported the use of physical stress echocardiography in this growing population group. Objective: To assess the frequency of myocardial ischemia in obese and non-obese patients underg...

. The incidence of myocardial infarction and symptoms of coronary heart disease (CHD) were investigated in a prospective Finnish population study. Drawn from four geographical areas in Finland the study population comprised 5 438 men and 4 924 women aged 30–59 at entry. The results are based on a re-examination of the study population after a mean follow-up time of six years. The average annual incidence of coronary death was 3.8/1 000, and that of non-fatal infarction 6.5/1000 in men and 0.4/10...

Obesity increases the risk of disease and death. With now one-third of Americans classified as obese (1,2), and the prevalence increasing, it is evident that obesity and its consequences have become one of the country’s most urgent health care concerns. As we move into the 21 st century, obesity-induced diseases will claim an increasing percentage of health care resources, as well as medical efforts.

Purpose: The evidence with regard to the relationship of obesity with medical comorbidities was assessed and priority research issues identified. Methods: The existing literature in English was surveyed. Results: The evidence is overwhelming on the association of obesity to a number of medical conditions. These include: insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia, sleep apnea, arthritis, hyperuricemia, gall bladder disease, and certain types of cancer. ...

Obesity increases the risk of morbidity and mortality and the magnitude of risk for each can only be measured through population studies. By morbidity is meant the onset and severity of disease associated with obesity and by mortality the death rate that can be directly attributed to obesity. This chapter describes the epidemiologic studies that have helped to define the risks of obesity on morbidity and mortality (Table 1).

Abstract Findings of the Nationale Verzehrstudie and Verbundstudie, Ernahrungserhebung und Risikofaktorenanalytik studies are discussed in light of their clinical significance. Obesity increases the statistical risk of developing a number of diseases, of which the most important are cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Obesity causes insulin resistance and plays a part in the development of the metabolic syndrome. The Verbundstudie, Ernahrungserhebung und Risikofaktorenanalytik survey shows t...

The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of two hypocaloric (800-kcal) diets on body weight reduction and composition, insulin sensitivity, and proteolysis in 25 normal glucose-tolerant obese women. The two diets had the following composition: 45% protein, 35% carbohydrate (CHO), and 20% fat (HP diet, 10 subjects), and 60% CHO, 20% protein, and 20% fat (HC diet, 15 subjects); both lasted 21 days. A euglycemic hyperinsulinemic (25 mU/kg/h) clamp lasting 150 minutes combined with indire...
