#Proteinuria as a Significant Predictive Factor for the Progression of Carotid Artery #Atherosclerosis in Non-Albuminuric Type 2 #Diabetes

The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the urine protein to creatinine ratio (uPCR) has have clinical significance in relation to cardiovascular risk associated with carotid artery intima-media thickness (cIMT) progression, in subjects with type 2 diabetes and normoalbuminuria. MethodsIn this retrospective longitudinal study on T2D, we recruited 927 subjects with normoalbuminuria (urine …

Effect of Long-Term Marine #Omega-3 Fatty Acids Supplementation on the Risk of Atrial #Fibrillation in Randomized Controlled Trials of Cardiovascular Outcomes: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Some, but not all, large-scale randomized controlled trials (RCTs) investigating the effects of marine omega-3 fatty acids supplementation on cardiovascular outcomes have reported increased risks of atrial fibrillation (AF). The potential reasons for disparate findings may be dose related. Methods: The MEDLINE and Embase databases were searched for articles and abstracts published between January 1, …
