Prevalence and characteristics of tinnitus among US adults.
TLDR
The prevalence of frequent tinnitus is highest among older adults, non-Hispanic whites, former smokers, and adults with hypertension, hearing impairment, loud noise exposure, or generalized anxiety disorder. Expand
Time trends in reported prevalence of kidney stones in the United States: 1976-1994.
TLDR
Prevalence of kidney stone disease history in the United States population increased between 1980 and 1994 and a history of stone disease was strongly associated with race/ethnicity and region of residence. Expand
Inflammatory markers and the risk of coronary heart disease in men and women.
TLDR
Although plasma lipid levels were more strongly associated with an increased risk than were inflammatory markers, the level of C-reactive protein remained a significant contributor to the prediction of coronary heart disease. Expand
Genome-wide association analyses identify 18 new loci associated with serum urate concentrations
TLDR
New candidate genes for serum urate concentration highlight the importance of metabolic control of urate production and excretion, which may have implications for the treatment and prevention of gout. Expand
New loci associated with kidney function and chronic kidney disease
TLDR
The CKDGen consortium performed a meta-analysis of genome-wide association data in 67,093 individuals of European ancestry to identify new susceptibility loci for reduced renal function as estimated by serum creatinine, serum cystatin c and CKD. Expand
Factors influencing serum cystatin C levels other than renal function and the impact on renal function measurement.
TLDR
It is found that older age, male gender, greater weight, greater height, current cigarette smoking, and higher serum C-reactive protein (CRP) levels were independently associated with higher serum cystatin C levels after adjusting for creatinine clearance. Expand
Change in prevalence of hearing loss in US adolescents.
TLDR
The prevalence of hearing loss among a sample of US adolescents aged 12 to 19 years was greater in 2005-2006 compared with 1988-1994, and the cross-sectional relations between several potential risk factors and hearing loss were examined. Expand
Cardiovascular Morbidity and Mortality in Women Diagnosed With Rheumatoid Arthritis
TLDR
In this large prospective cohort study of women participating in the Nurses’ Health Study, participants with rheumatoid arthritis had a significantly increased risk of myocardial infarction but not stroke compared with those without rhearatoid arthritis. Expand
Comparison of Dietary Calcium with Supplemental Calcium and Other Nutrients as Factors Affecting the Risk for Kidney Stones in Women
TLDR
A 12-year prospective analysis among 91 731 women who were participating in the Nurses' Health Study and had no history of kidney stones at study entry found that high intake of dietary calcium was associated with a decreased risk for stone formation. Expand
Purine-rich foods, dairy and protein intake, and the risk of gout in men.
TLDR
Higher levels of meat and seafood consumption are associated with an increased risk of gout, whereas a higher level of consumption of dairy products is associated with a decreased risk. Expand
