A simple coronary disease prediction algorithm was developed using categorical variables, which allows physicians to predict multivariate CHD risk in patients without overt CHD.
Kidney disease as a risk factor for development of cardiovascular disease: a statement from the American Heart Association Councils on Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure Research,…
There was a high prevalence of CVD in CKD and that mortality due to CVD was 10 to 30 times higher in dialysis patients than in the general population, and the task force recommended that patients with CKD be considered in the “highest risk group” for subsequent CVD events.
Obesity and the risk of heart failure.

The metabolic syndrome accounts for up to one third of CVD in men and approximately half of new T2DM over 8 years of follow-up, and is associated with an increased risk for CVD and T2 DM in both sexes.
Cardiovascular disease risk profiles.
Plasma Homocysteine as a Risk Factor for Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease
Dementia developed in 111 subjects, including 83 given a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, over a median follow-up period of eight years, and plasma levels of folate and vitamins B12 and B6 increased.

The overweight category is associated with increased relative and population attributable risk for hypertension and cardiovascular sequelae and interventions to reduce adiposity and avoid excess weight may have large effects on the development of risk factors and cardiovascular disease at an individual and population level.
An updated coronary risk profile. A statement for health professionals.
Using a simple worksheet, a patient's 5- and 10-year CHD risks can be estimated. The components of the profile were selected because they are objective and strongly and independently related to CHD…
Vitamin status and intake as primary determinants of homocysteinemia in an elderly population.
A strong association between homocysteine concentration and folate, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6 status, as well as age is indicated, suggesting that a substantial majority of the cases of high homocy steine in this older population can be attributed to vitamin status.
