Influence of total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides on risk of cerebrovascular disease: the Copenhagen city heart study
TLDR
The pattern of the association between plasma cholesterol and risk of ischaemic cerebrovascular disease was not log linear, and the increased risk was confined to the upper 5% of the cholesterol distribution. Expand
Diabetes mellitus, plasma glucose and lung function in a cross-sectional population study.
TLDR
Even in subjects without known DM, there was a significant association between reduction in lung function and raised plasma glucose concentration, and FVC (and FEV1) was reduced in diabetic subjects treated with insulin, and in diabetic Subjects treated with hypoglycaemic agents and/or diet compared to control subjects. Expand
Relation of ventilatory impairment and of chronic mucus hypersecretion to mortality from obstructive lung disease and from all causes.
TLDR
This study shows that impaired lung function is very strongly related to total mortality, obstructive lung disease related mortality, and obstructives lung disease mortality and suggests that chronic mucus hypersecretion, in those with impaired ventilatory function, is also a significant risk factor for death from obstructive Lung disease. Expand
Diabetes mellitus and ventilatory capacity: a five year follow-up study.
TLDR
It is found that the subjects who developed DM during the observation period had the steepest declines of ventilatory function and these declines were significantly greater than the declines observed among the nondiabetic subjects. Expand
Risk factors for death and hospitalization from pneumonia. A prospective study of a general population.
TLDR
Reduced FEV1 is the most important risk indicator for severe pneumonia, in addition to age, and other significant risk indicators for hospitalization were: self-reported asthma, mucus hypersecretion, history of stroke, and smoking. Expand
Pulmonary function is influenced by heavy alcohol consumption.
TLDR
Multiple regression analysis showed that alcohol consumption significantly accelerated the loss of FEV1 and the Loss of FVC with time, and consumption of 350 g of alcohol/wk had an effect on FEVs comparable to the effect of smoking 15 g of tobacco/day. Expand
Relationship of the type of tobacco and inhalation pattern to pulmonary and total mortality.
TLDR
The present study substantiates the view that tobacco smoking increases pulmonary and total mortality and small differences between the various types of tobacco are probably caused by different inhalation patterns. Expand
Eight hundred and seventy-five cases of bacterial meningitis. Part I of a three-part series: clinical data, prognosis, and the role of specialised hospital departments.
TLDR
Between 1966 and 1976, 875 patients with bacterial meningitis were treated at the Department of Infectious Diseases, Rigshospitalet, and the total fatality rate was 3.8 per cent, and 4.0 per cent had sequelae on discharge. Expand
Stroke incidence and risk factors for stroke in Copenhagen, Denmark.
TLDR
Among the 16 potential risk factors for stroke in Copenhagen, Denmark, significant effects were found for age, sex, household income, smoking habits, systolic blood pressure, diabetes, plasma cholesterol concentration, ischemic heart disease, and atrial fibrillation. Expand
Ventilatory function and chronic mucus hypersecretion as predictors of death from lung cancer.
TLDR
It is concluded that lowered ventilatory function and chronic mucus hypersecretion are both significant predictors of death from lung cancer, even after standardization for smoking. Expand
