The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of long-term high level physical exertion on plasma lipids and lipoproteins. Ninety-one young athletes, 70 men and 21 women, who practiced sports such as running, swimming, rowing, boxing and soccer, were studied. The control group included 101 healthy subjects, 77 men and 24 women, with sedentary(More)
The postprandial (PP) elevations in triglyceride rich lipoproteins are potentially atherogenic. To describe the characteristics of PP lipemia after a fat load in non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and evaluate the response to a fibric acid derivative, seven males with NIDDM were studied for 12 hours after the ingestion of a fat load (65 g of(More)
The results of lipoprotein studies performed in 67 members of 10 kindreds with familial hypoalphalipoproteinemia are presented. Probands were ten patients referred to the Lipid Clinic of the National Institute of Cardiology for evaluation of their lipid profile, all of whom had history of a definite myocardial infarction occurring before they had reached(More)
Clinical trials have demonstrated that reduction of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) reduces the incidence of major cardiac events in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). Recently, two major secondary prevention trials that evaluated the impact of increasing low serum levels of high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and decreasing(More)
The postprandial (PP) elevations in triglyceride rich lipoproteins (TRL) are potentially atherogenic. We compared PP lipemia in non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) with hypoalphalipoproteinemia (HA) and patients with primary HA. Eight males in each group, mean age +/- SD 54 +/- 10 years, were studied for 12 hours after the ingestion of a fat(More)
Renin Activity (PRA), Aldosterone (PA), Sodium (PNa) and Potassium (PK) in plasma and Aldosterone (UA), Sodium (UNa) and Potassium (UK) in 24 hrs urine were measured in 11 cases of heart failure compensated with treatment (HFCT) consisting in digoxin 0.25 mg daily, furosemide 40 to 80 mg daily, potassium chloride 1.5 g daily and low salt diet and in 12(More)
Diabetic cardiomyopathy apparently has an important role in the increased cardiovascular morbi-mortality of diabetic patients and its cause is likely to be secondary to small vessel disease. We undertook the present study to compare small and large vessel disease in hearts of patients who died with coronary disease, and determine how diabetes and/or(More)
The hypocholesterolemic effect of psyllium plantago (PP) was evaluated in 14 individuals with polygenic hypercholesterolemia. Subjects with secondary dyslipidemias were excluded. Since their admission until the end of the study all the patients had to follow an isocaloric diet, with less than 10% of the calories provided as saturated fats, P/S relation(More)
