Prevalence of chronic kidney disease in the United States.
TLDR
The prevalence of CKD in the United States in 1999-2004 is higher than it was in 1988-1994 and this increase is partly explained by the increasing prevalence of diabetes and hypertension and raises concerns about future increased incidence of kidney failure and other complications.
Prevalence of and Risk Factors for Peripheral Arterial Disease in the United States: Results From the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1999–2000
TLDR
This study provides nationally representative prevalence estimates of PAD in the United States, revealing that PAD affects more than 5 million adults and disproportionately affects blacks.
Meta-Analysis: Glycosylated Hemoglobin and Cardiovascular Disease in Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
A systematic review of prospective cohort studies of glycosylated hemoglobin and cardiovascular disease in persons with diabetes mellitus found a graded relationship between fasting and postprandial blood glucose levels and subsequent risk for a cardiovascular event.
Systematic Review: Comparative Effectiveness and Safety of Oral Medications for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
A systematic review was commissioned to summarize the comparative benefits and harms of oral agents that are used to treat type 2 diabetes and selected studies that reported on major clinical outcomes or any of the following intermediate end points or adverse events.
Prevalence and risk factors for erectile dysfunction in the US.
TLDR
The high prevalence of erectile dysfunction among men with diabetes and hypertension suggests that screening for erectiles dysfunction in these patients may be warranted and physical activity and other measures for the prevention of cardiovascular disease and diabetes may prevent decrease in erectile function.
Diabetes mellitus, fasting glucose, and risk of cause-specific death.
TLDR
In addition to vascular disease, diabetes is associated with substantial premature death from several cancers, infectious diseases, external causes, intentional self-harm, and degenerative disorders, independent of several major risk factors.
Update on Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease in Adults With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Light of Recent Evidence: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association and the American
TLDR
A synthesis of the recent literature, new guidelines, and clinical targets, including screening for kidney and subclinical cardiovascular disease for the contemporary management of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus are presented.
Breast and cervical cancer screening: sociodemographic predictors among White, Black, and Hispanic women.
TLDR
Regardless of race/ethnicity, most women follow mammography and cervical cancer screening guidelines, and the identification of specific factors associated with adherence to cancer screenings guidelines may help inform screening campaigns.
Prevalence of and risk factors for peripheral arterial disease in the United States: results from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1999-2000.
TLDR
PAD prevalence increases dramatically with age and disproportionately affects blacks, and the vast majority of individuals with PAD have 1 or more cardiovascular disease risk factors that should be targeted for therapy.
Diabetes mellitus, fasting blood glucose concentration, and risk of vascular disease: a collaborative meta-analysis of 102 prospective studies.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of individual records of diabetes, fasting blood glucose concentration, and other risk factors in people without initial vascular disease from studies in the Emerging Risk Factors Collaboration found diabetes confers about a two-fold excess risk for a wide range of vascular diseases, independently from other conventional risk factors.
