Earlier menopause puts women at greater risk of heart failure, study shows

A US-based study revealed that women who have never given birth have more than a two-fold increase in the risk of a common type of the condition known as diastolic heart failure, compared with women who have children. The authors say the new study flags up the importance of looking at how factors such as pregnancy and reproductive periods are related to cardiovascular health

Non communicable diseases

An emerging strategy to tackle chronic disease

In many countries around the globe, both developed and developing, tertiary hospitals in city centers are overwhelmed by an influx of patients who might be better served with preventative or primary medical care. The mismatch is symptomatic of a growing shift in global health, away from infectious diseases and toward non-communicable diseases such as cancer and heart disease. NCDs are likely to be the key challenge of the future, and for now they are being treated in a system that wasn’t built to address them. Experts and practitioners are beginning to piece together a strategy involving stronger and more integrated health systems

Study: Low iron levels may increase heart disease risk

A recent study at University College London found low iron levels may increase a person`s risk of developing heart disease. Previous research has shown that iron status, the amount of iron in the body, is linked to cardiovascular disease risk. Researchers have struggled in the past to show a direct link and have often had conflicting results. The current study, published in the journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, used genetic variations as a proxy for iron status showing that having a high iron status can reduce the risk of CVD and, conversely, low iron status can increase the risk

Scottish study strengthens link between high BMI, cardiometabolic disease risk

New research adds to existing evidence that there’s an association between high body mass index and an increased risk of cardiometabolic diseases like hypertension, coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes. The study, published in JAMA Cardiology, was randomized using the mendelian method. Results showed that when adjusted for age, sex, alcohol intake and smoking history, higher BMI was linked to an increased risk of coronary heart disease, hypertension and type 2 diabetes, as well as increased systolic and diastolic blood pressure

Resistance exercise may help stave off heart, diabetes risks

Middle aged adults who do even a small amount of regular strength training exercise may be lowering their risk of so-called metabolic syndrome - itself a risk factor for both heart disease and diabetes, a recent study suggests. People with at least three unfavourable health stats from a list that includes large waist size, high blood pressure or triglycerides, high blood sugar or low “good” cholesterol are said to have metabolic syndrome, and are at increased risk of going on to develop diabetes, heart disease or both

Fewer admissions for heart failure, but blacks still fare worse than whites

Between 2002 and 2013, hospital admissions for heart failure fell by nearly a third in the U.S., but blacks are still more than twice as likely as whites to be hospitalized for the condition, researchers say. “These findings are impressive and suggest that efforts to prevent heart failure and improve the outpatient treatment of heart failure have had overall success in reducing the number of heart failure patients needing hospitalizations,” senior study author Dr. Gregg C. Fonarow said. “However, the improvements were not equally distributed across race/ethnicities and genders, and additional efforts are needed.”

Heart healthy lifestyle tied to lower drug costs

People with heart disease spend a lot less on medications when they take steps to lower their risk of complications by doing things like getting enough exercise, avoiding cigarettes and keeping their blood pressure in check, a U.S. study suggests. For the study, researchers focused on adults diagnosed with the most common type of heart disease, atherosclerosis. When these patients did as much as they could to avoid so-called modifiable risk factors for heart disease - inactivity, obesity, smoking, high cholesterol, elevated blood pressure and diabetes - their total average annual pharmaceutical expenditures were $1,400, the study found. But patients who did little to modify these risk factors had total average annual pharmaceutical expenditures of $4,516

Pre-eclampsia linked to heart disease risk

Women who suffer from gestational hypertension or pre-eclampsia are significantly at greater risk of future heart disease and should have their heart health monitored post-pregnancy, urge experts. The Heart Foundation says pregnancy is the `ultimate cardiac stress test` and pre-eclampsia, in particular, provides a window into the future heart complications a woman may face in the next decade. In Australia, 30,000 women each year will develop high blood pressure in pregnancy and 10,000 of these will have pre-eclampsia

Early-life exposure to famine increases risk of dyslipidemia in women, but not men

Exposure to severe famine as a foetus, or as an infant, significantly increases the chance of having dyslipidemia in adulthood, according to research published in the journal BMC Public Health. Analysis of the prevalence of dyslipidemia in 2,752 people who were exposed to the Chinese famine between 1959 and 1961, revealed that those who were in utero, or an infant during this period, were over 50% more likely to have dyslipidemia in adulthood. Taking gender into account, this association remained true for women, but not for men

Will AstraZeneca's SGLT2-favoring data win the class a shot at front-line diabetes use?

A real-world analysis showed that SGLT2 diabetes meds from AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and the Eli Lilly-Boehringer Ingelheim team could dramatically cut down on heart failure hospitalizations and deaths. Now, new analyses have confirmed those findings—and may make a case for using the class earlier in treatment, AZ’s execs suggest. Researchers separated patients into two groups, one with existing CV disease and the other without. They saw “the same signal, just as robust, in those two different patient populations in terms of the SGLT2 class lowering the risk of hospitalizations for heart failure and death as well,” Jim McDermott, AstraZeneca’s Medical Affairs lead for diabetes, said

How low to push blood sugar, and how to do it?

Growing evidence suggests that the method by which blood sugar is lowered may make a big difference in heart risk. That has raised a medical dilemma affecting tens of millions of people with type 2 diabetes — and for the doctors who treat them. At identical A1C levels, some drugs lowered risk, some did not change it — and some actually increased the chances of heart disease. Older and much cheaper diabetes medications, like metformin, have not been subjected to such tests, although they do have long and well established safety records. But whether they actually prevent heart problems is unknown

Study counters claims that alcohol consumption may provide health benefit

A new analysis of 45 studies and nearly 3m people on the potential protective effects of moderate drinking on the heart has exposed flaws in the research design. For example, when non-drinkers are compared with moderate drinkers, the moderate drinkers have reduced risk of heart disease. But many of these studies failed to account for non-drinkers who stopped because of alcohol-related health problems (75% of the studies). Former drinkers should not be included in the abstainer reference group because it artificially supresses the heart disease risks
