US adults with metabolic syndrome, as defined by National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP ATP III) criteria, have been shown to be at increased risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD), but there is limited information in other populations. The relationship between metabolic syndrome and CKD (defined as estimated glomerular(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate a risk score to predict people at high risk of diabetes in Thailand. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A Thai cohort of 2,677 individuals, aged 35-55 years, without diabetes at baseline, was resurveyed after 12 years. Logistic regression models were used to identify baseline risk factors that(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine in Thai adults aged >or=35 years the prevalence and management of diabetes and the associations of diabetes with cardiovascular risk factors. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS The International Collaborative Study of Cardiovascular Disease in Asia was a complex sample survey. Data from a structured questionnaire,(More)
End-stage kidney disease has become an increasing burden in all regions of the world. However, limited epidemiologic data on chronic kidney disease in Southeast Asian populations are available. Therefore, a cohort study over a period of 12 yr (1985 to 1997) in 3499 employees of the Electric Generation Authority of Thailand, aged 35 to 55 yr, was conducted(More)
BACKGROUND LDL and hs-CRP are risk factors for vascular events and can be modified by Statin. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the baseline hs-CRP of a certain Thai population who would need Atorvastatin, to evaluate the dose response of Atorvastatin toward LDL and hs-CRP level, and to evaluate the efficacy and safety of different types of Atorvastatin. MATERIAL(More)
AIM There are limited data on the risks of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Southeast Asian populations. Several GFR estimating equations have been developed in diverse Asian populations, but they produce markedly discrepant results. We investigated the impact of Asian equations on the mortality risk of CKD in a Thai cohort during long term follow-up, and(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular mortality is increasing in economically developing countries such as Thailand but reliable data about the determinants of these changes are few. METHODS In 1985, male and female employees of the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand took part in a cardiovascular risk factor survey. In 1997, a follow-up survey was conducted and(More)
OBJECTIVES Increased serum C-reactive protein (CRP) is associated with future risk of coronary heart disease in apparently healthy individuals. Numerous high-sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) methods are available but their comparability in large populations has not been assessed. This study aimed to evaluate the performance of two CRP methods in a large Asian(More)
BACKGROUND Age- and sex- standardized mortality rate of cardiovascular disease (CVD) was high in Bangkok and central Thailand in the year 2000. This may partially be related to differences in risk factors. OBJECTIVE To compare prevalence of CVD risk factors among regions in Thailand in the same period. MATERIAL AND METHOD From a survey in 2000(More)
OBJECTIVES High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) is an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease. Data are lacking on the performance of homogeneous methods using a large number of samples. DESIGN AND METHODS We compared the performance of two HDL-C direct assays, the Dimension RxL (the Dade method) and the COBAS INTEGRA (the Roche(More)
