Hypertension is a frequent chronic cardiovascular disease with the prevalence between 20 and 40%. The prevalence of hypertension among women is lower than in men. Osteoporosis (OP) is characterized by decreased bone density with damages of bone tissue microarchitecture. The aim of this study was to examine the association between hypertension and(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of regular aerobic execise on glycaemic control, insulin resistance, cardiovascular risk and oxidative stress-defense parameters in overweight and obese type 2 diabetic patients. METHODS Changes from baseline to 3 and 6 months of aerobic exercise in total of 30 type 2 diabetics were assessed for(More)
AIM The aim of the present study was to investigate the prevalence of the PC-1 121Q allele and to test its association to cardiovascular risk factors in type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) patients. METHODS A total of 103 unrelated Caucasians from Serbia, including 71 DM patients without CHD (aged 59.4 +/- 8.9 years, with a mean body mass index (BMI) of 33.3(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency, some characteristics and prognostic significance of silent myocardial ischemia during early exercise testing in patients after myocardial infarction. In the group of 210 patients within three months after myocardial infarction submaximal or symptom-limited exercise test were performed. Out of 210 patients(More)
There is a well-known relationship between obesity and hypertensive left ventricular hypertrophy. However, little is known about the relationship between obesity decrease and regression of hypertensive left ventricular hypertrophy. The aim of the study is assessment of relationship between obesity decrease and regression of hypertensive left ventricular(More)
Our aim was to compare left ventricular (LV) deformation in subjects with masked hypertension (MH) to normotensive and sustained hypertensive patients. This cross-sectional study included 185 untreated subjects who underwent 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring and complete two-dimensional echocardiographic (2DE) examination including(More)
INTRODUCTION Left atrial size is increased in patients with arterial hypertension. Left atrial enlargement represents a risk factor of atrial fibrillation and stroke. Left atrial size depends on the effect of many other etiological factors, predominantly by body mass and the left ventricular mass. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to investigate(More)
INTRODUCTION The cardiovascular changes (vascular structure changes, hypertrophy of the left ventricle) contribute to both the increased cardiovascular morbidity and the mortality of essential hypertension. Therefore, modern treatment strategies should not only target blood pressure (BP) reduction but also normalize cardiovascular structure and function. (More)
Hypertension has  a central role in cardiometabolic disease and is usually associated with  metabolic disorders, such as insulin resistance, obesity, and dyslipidemia. Hyperinsulinemia may increase cardiovascular (CV) risk through its promotion of hypertension, which is possibly a result of chronic enhancement of sympathetic nervous system activity,(More)
