Consumption of dairy products is beneficial to human health, with a recent study reporting that high intake levels are associated with reduced risks of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) among women.
Persistent high residual inflammatory risk (RIR) is frequent in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with baseline low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) ≤70 mg/dl and appears to increase the risk of major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular event (MACCE; ie, death, myocardial infarction or stroke), a recent study has shown.
Increased consumption of salt appears to reduce sublingual microvascular density following administration of nitroglycerin (NTG), according to a recent study, adding that larger changes in body weight following high salt intake coincide with a larger decrease in microvascular density.
Patients at a more advanced stage of chronic kidney disease (CKD) are highly likely to discontinue treatment with commonly used blood pressure-lowering drugs, such as angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), a study has found.
The risk factors and outcomes associated with an increased risk of permanent pacing include atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation, multivalve surgery and New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class III/IV, a recent study has found.
