Two Metabolic Factors Linked to Liver Disease

Via Peters

The presence of two or more metabolic risk factors was associated with greater odds of steatosis and fibrosis, a cohort study found. Among over 4,000 participants, those who had at least two metabolic factors based on metabolic-associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) criteria were at significantly higher risk of developing steatosis […]

A simple risk model for predicting Metabolic Syndrome

Via Peters

Introduction Worldwide, the prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) – “a clustering of risk factors which includes hypertension, central obesity, impaired glucose metabolism with insulin resistance, and dyslipidemia”1 is high and rising, with nearly one in four adults affected.2 The diagnosis of MetS increases an individual’s risk of developing CVD by […]

Data-driven subgroups of type 2 diabetes, metabolic response, and renal risk profile after bariatric surgery: a retrospective cohort study

Via Peters

Background A novel data-driven classification of type 2 diabetes has been proposed to personalise anti-diabetic treatment according to phenotype. One subgroup, severe insulin-resistant diabetes (SIRD), is characterised by mild hyperglycaemia but marked hyperinsulinaemia, and presents an increased risk of diabetic nephropathy. We hypothesised that patients with SIRD could particularly benefit […]

ROCHESTER, Minn. ― Patients hospitalized with COVID-19 who had a combination of high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, or other conditions associated with metabolic syndrome were at much higher risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome and death, according to an international study published in JAMA Network Open. The risk for developing acute respiratory distress syndrome, a […]
