Most studies of diet in glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes have focused on intakes of fat, carbohydrate, fibre, fruits and vegetables. Instead, we aimed to compare diets that were available during human evolution with more recently introduced ones. Twenty-nine patients with ischaemic heart disease plus either glucose intolerance or type 2 diabetes were(More)
Manipulation of the blood's oxygen carrying capacity (CaO(2)) through reinfusion of red blood cells, injections of recombinant erythropoietin or by other means results in an increased maximal oxygen uptake and concomitantly enhanced endurance performance. Therefore, there is a need to establish a system--"A Blood Pass"--through which such illegal and(More)
In an open, controlled trial, treatment with a combination of metoprolol and hydralazine was compared with non-pharmacological management of mild and moderate hypertension in pregnancy. One hundred and sixty-one women participated in the study. The drug-treated group showed significantly better blood pressure control than the group not given(More)
Pharmacokinetic studies on the concentration of the beta 1-blocker metoprolol have been performed in maternal plasma, amniotic fluid, breast milk and the plasma of the newborn. The concentration of metoprolol in maternal plasma exceeded that in the amniotic fluid initially , but not later on. The quotient between the metoprolol concentration in the maternal(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to study the effects of isradipine, a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker, on mother and fetus in the treatment of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. STUDY DESIGN The investigation was performed as a two-group, parallel, double-blind multicenter study of isradipine versus placebo. Fifty-four women were randomized to(More)
4997 of 7354 pregnant women had no clinical indication for an elective ultrasound examination at 12 weeks' gestation. 2482 of these women were randomly selected for ultrasound screening at 15 weeks and the remainder received the same standard antenatal care without the scan. Labour was less often induced among screened women both for all reasons (5.9% vs(More)
Primiparas with hypertension first recognized in pregnancy and an age- and parity-matched control group, normotensive throughout pregnancy, were monitored during 5-6 years with blood pressure recordings performed in a standardized way. At the end of the study period, 21 out of 49 women with hypertension in pregnancy had developed hypertension requiring(More)
To investigate whether fear affects the strength with which responses are made, 12 animal-fearful individuals (five snake fearful and seven spider fearful) were instructed to decide as quickly as possible whether an animal target from a deviant category was present in a 3 × 4 item (animal) search array. The animal categories were snakes, spiders, and cats.(More)
