OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of different classes of antihypertensive treatments, including monotherapy and combination therapy, on survival and major renal outcomes in patients with diabetes. DESIGN Systematic review and bayesian network meta-analysis of randomised clinical trials. DATA SOURCES Electronic literature search of PubMed, Medline,(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to construct a prediction model to identify subjects with high glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels by incorporating anthropometric, lifestyle, clinical, and biochemical information in a large cross-sectional ethnic Chinese population in Taiwan from a health checkup center. METHODS The prediction model was derived from(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence of predictive power of various fatty acids on the risk of metabolic syndrome was scanty. We evaluated the role of various fatty acids, including saturated fat, monounsaturated fat, transfat, n-6 fatty acid, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), for the risk of the metabolic syndrome in Taiwan. RESULTS A nested(More)
OBJECTIVE With increasing evidence about the cardiovascular risk associated with postprandial nonfasting glucose and lipid dysmetabolism, it remains uncertain whether the postprandial glucose concentration increases the ability of metabolic syndrome to predict cardiovascular events. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This was an observational study of 15,145(More)
Evidence of the genetic association between CD36 candidate gene and the risk of metabolic syndrome and its components has been inconsistent. This case–control study assessed the haplotype-tagged SNPs from CD36 on the risk of metabolic syndrome and components. We recruited 1,000 cases and age, gender-matched controls were randomly selected from the(More)
The role of post-prandial glucose on cardiovascular risk among Chinese adults without diabetes was investigated. In a median follow-up of 3.5 years on 16,590 participants, 95 cardiovascular deaths were found. The relative risk in the highest quintile post-prandial glucose was 1.61 (P for trend, 0.05) for cardiovascular death.
BACKGROUND Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is independently associated with QT prolongation among patients with diabetes. It has not yet been determined whether this association remains valid in the general population. We designed an observational study to explore this association. METHODS AND RESULTS We conducted a cross-sectional analysis of 31(More)
Emerging evidences have shown that diabetes mellitus not only raises risk but also heightens mortality rate of cancer. It is not clear, however, whether antitumor CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) response is down-modulated in diabetic hosts. We investigated the impact of hyperglycemia on CTLs' acquisition of tumor-killing capability by utilizing(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of baseline and changes in blood pressure and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol on the carotid intima media thickness (IMT) have not been well documented. METHODS A total of 2572 adults (mean age 53.8 years, 54.6% women) in a Taiwanese community undertook three blood pressure and LDL cholesterol examinations over 6 years.(More)
