  • Metabolically Obese Normal-Weight Phenotype as a Risk Factor for High Blood Pressure: A Five-Year Cohort

    The metabolically obese normal-weight (MONW) phenotype has been considered a risk factor for different chronic diseases, but its role in high blood pressure (HBP) is still unclear. The aim of the study is to determine if the MONW phenotype constitutes a risk factor for hypertension in Peruvian adults belonging to a 5-year cohort.

  • Combination of a Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Analog and a Sodium-Glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitor Improves Lipid Metabolism Compared to the Monotherapies in Experimental Metabolic Syndrome

    Here we evaluated the association of the glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) analog, liraglutide, and the sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor, canagliflozin, on the improvement of metabolic syndrome symptoms in a high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity rat model.

  • Bone Mineral Density as a Predictor of Cardiovascular Disease in Women: A Real-World Retrospective Study

    Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in women remains understudied, under-diagnosed, and under-treated. Traditional risk factors affect men’s and women’s hearts differently. However, the current risk stratification tools do not consider such sex-specific factors.

  • Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone and Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate

    The retrospective study investigated thyroid function and CKD, and assessed the relationship between thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and urine albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR), and the slope of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), stratified by CKD grades.

  • Sedentary Lifestyle Attenuates Positive Metabolic Effect of Regular Physical Exercise

    The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of the duration of sedentary time on blood lipids and anthropometric parameters in people practicing resistance training in leisure time. Our study included 213 subjects without any history of cardiovascular disease. The target group (169 subjects) had at least two 90-min sessions of resistance training per week for at least 12 months prior to study commencing.







Protective Effect of Metformin on Venous Thrombosis in Diabetic Patients: Findings From a Systematic Review
Despite the effects of metformin on cardiovascular diseases, there is limited evidence supporting its beneficial effects on venous thrombosis, and such evidence is not qualitatively synthesized both from observational and intervention studies, thereby limiting our understanding of the role of metformin in preventing venous thromboembolism (VTE).

Predictors of Perioperative Hypertensive Crisis in Patients With Pheochromocytoma: A Retrospective Study
Pheochromocytoma is a rare adrenal gland tumor. The definitive treatment is an adrenalectomy. Because of its secretory nature, appropriate preoperative treatment is essential to prevent hypertensive crisis (HTC) during surgery. Despite this management, HTC is common and can cause life-threatening complications. Full Text

Sheehan’s Syndrome in a Fifty-Six-Year-Old Woman Presenting With a Retroperitoneal Mass: Perioperative Management During a Major Surgery
Patients with Sheehan’s syndrome (SS) can present with adrenal crisis, myxedema coma, hypoglycemia, and hyponatremia, which could be triggered by an infection or surgery. For the endocrinologist, a patient with SS who is scheduled for surgery presents a significant challenge as more likely to experience delayed emergence from anesthesia, hypotension that does not respond to the standard regimen, a decrease in core body temperature, and a decreased need for anesthetic drugs due to reduced metabolism.
