Evaluation of serum #calcium differences in #hypertensive crises and control patients: A randomly matched case-control study

The role of calcium in blood pressure has been widely studied among hypertensive patients; however, no study has explored the role of calcium in hypertensive crises. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the differences in serum calcium levels between hypertensive crises patients and a 1:1 random matched controls (age-, sex-, race-, diabetes, …

#Calcium Intake Is Inversely Related to Risk of #Obesity among American Young Adults over a 30-Year Follow-Up

Calcium (Ca) is an essential nutrient that may play an important role in weight maintenance through its involvement in energy or lipid metabolism. However, little is known about the long-term associations of Ca intake with obesity risk. ObjectivesWe aimed to prospectively examine the association between cumulative Ca intake and the incidence of obesity among American …

#Hypocalcaemia predicts 12‐month re‐hospitalization in heart #failure

Potential pathophysiology of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) has not been fully explored. The aim of the study was to reveal the association of serum calcium concentration at baseline with 12‐month clinical outcome in the disease.. ..Multivariate COX regression analysis revealed that baseline hypocalcaemia was associated with the increased risk of cardiac re‐hospitalization …

Comparison of #fracture risk using different supplemental doses of #vitamin D, #calcium or their combination: a network meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials

Inconsistent findings in regard to association between different concentrations of vitamin D, calcium or their combination and the risk of fracture have been reported during the past decade in community-dwelling older people A total of 25 randomised controlled trials involving 43 510 participants fulfilled the inclusion criteria. There was no evidence that the risk of …
