The AIM-HIGH Investigators. Niacin in patients with low HDL cholesterol levels receiving intensive statin therapy. N Engl J Med. 2011;365(24):2255-2267. Residual cardiovascular (CV) risk persists among high-risk patients despite achievement of target LDL-C levels. In addition to elevated LDL-C, low HDL-C has been found in epidemiological studies to independently predict coronary heart disease (CHD) risk.

BACKGROUND: Western-style fast food contributes to a dietary pattern portending poor cardiometabolic health in the United States. Western-style fast food contributes to a dietary pattern portending poor cardiometabolic health in the United States. With globalization, this way of eating is becoming more common in developing and recently developed populations.

Trends in the risk for CHD among adults w/ diagnosed diabetes in the U.S.: findings from the national health & nutrition examination survey

Top

Ford ES. Trends in the risk for coronary heart disease among adults with diagnosed diabetes in the u.s.: findings from the national health and nutrition examination survey, 1999-2008. Diabetes Care. 2011 Jun;34(6):1337-43. Epub 2011 Apr 19. Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a major cause of mortality among people with diabetes. The objective of this study was to examine the trend in an estimated 10-year risk for developing CHD among adults with diagnosed diabetes in the U.S.

Physical activity, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, and total and cardiovascular disease mortality in type 2 diabetes

Top

Vepsäläinen T, Soinio M, Marniemi J, Lehto S, Juutilainen A, Laakso M, Rönnemaa T Physical activity, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, and total and cardiovascular disease mortality in type 2 diabetes. Diabetes Care. 2011;34(7):1492-6. Physical activity reduces high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), cardiovascular disease (CVD), and total mortality in type 2 diabetic patients. However, it is not known whether the effects of physical activity on mortality depend on the levels of hs-CRP in patients with type 2 diabetes.
