The acute effects of ethanol on plasma atrial natriuretic peptide levels were investigated in 4 clinically healthy males, aged 24-26 years, consumed either 750 ml of water as a control study, or the same beverage with 1 ml/kg alcohol added, which increased the plasma alcohol concentration to 99.12 +/- 15.10 mg/dl at 60 min. Plasma atrial natriuretic peptide(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the distribution of fatty liver-nonalcoholic (NAFL) and alcoholic (AFL)-and its association with metabolic syndrome and its components in a population sample from a Mediterranean area. METHODS A sample of 2974 subjects (1679 males, 1295 females, age range 30-89 years) was randomly drawn from the population(More)
BACKGROUND Glycated hemoglobin (HbA(1c)), a marker of glycemia in the previous 3 months, was found to be associated with dietary saturated, fat but not with carbohydrates, in recent population surveys. Another nonenzymatically glycated substance in the blood, fructosamine, a marker of glycemia in the previous 3 weeks, is poorly correlated with HbA(1c) in(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate in non diabetic subjects the association of dietary carbohydrates with fructosamine, a measure of total non enzymatic glycated proteins in the blood associated with mortality, particularly from cardiovascular diseases. METHODS A population sample of 252 subjects (137 men and 115 women, mean age 57) without diabetes and with fasting(More)
Glycated apolipoprotein B (ApoB-G), a non enzymatically glycated protein, has recently been associated with myocardial infarction. Our aim is to evaluate, in diabetic and non diabetic subjects, the relationship of ApoB-G with serum fasting glucose, fructosamine, stable and labile fractions of glycated hemoglobin ((S)HbA(1c), (L)HbA(1c), respectively) and(More)
