1. In this prospective cohort study from France, consumption of ultra-processed foods (UPF) was linked to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D). 2. The association between UPF and T2D remained significant after accounting for other metabolic comorbidities and weight change. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good)            Study Rundown: Dietary content has...
1. In this retrospective study involving South Koreans with no history of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), persons who developed metabolic syndrome (MetS) within the three-year inclusion period were at significantly increased risk of MACE versus those who remained free of the condition. Persons who had MetS at the...
1. The risk of major cardiovascular events may be further reduced with the addition of fenofibrate therapy to statin treatment in adults with metabolic syndrome. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Metabolic syndrome is associated with an increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease; this risk is partly attributable to accompanying atherogenic dyslipidemia....
Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), the most common chronic liver disease in the United States, puts patients at increased risk of developing cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Patients with NASH are also at an increased risk of experiencing cardiovascular events and overall mortality. Pegbelfermin (BMS-986036) is a PEGylated human fibroblast growth factor...
While obesity has been shown to increase the risk of developing gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and preeclampsia (PE) in pregnancy, the association between metabolic syndrome and adverse pregnancy outcomes has not been investigated. In this multicenter prospective cohort study, 5,530 nulliparous women with singleton pregnancies recruited between November 2004...

While parenteral prophylactic anticoagulation has been shown to reduce the risk of VTE in cancer patients, its use is associated with an increased risk of major bleeding...
1. Investigating a polygenic index of 48 single nucleotide polymorphisms for Waist-Hip Ratio adjusted for BMI, this study showed an association with increased biomarkers for cardiovascular and metabolic risk. 2. The polygenic index for WHR-B was also associated with increased risk of Coronary Heart Disease and Type II Diabetes but...
1. From 1999 to 2012, there was a significant linear trend of decreasing metabolic syndrome severity and of increasing Body Mass Index (BMI) z scores and HDL levels among U.S. adolescents. 2. Over the same time period, there was a significant decrease in overall calorie and carbohydrate consumption, and an...
1. After 1 year, patients with metabolic syndrome who followed the American Heart Association (AHA) diet lost only 0.6 kg more on average than patients who followed a diet high in fiber. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: The metabolic syndrome affects millions of Americans, and it has contributed to...
1. An association between patients with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) was revealed in this study.                                            2. While diabetes mellitus, general obesity, abdominal obesity, and low HDL were all associated with HS, the strongest association was with general obesity. Evidence Rating Level: 3 (Average) Study Rundown: Hidradenitis...
