Strong Heart Study Analyses Obesity and Lipoproteins

2014-08-27 03:57:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To examine the relationship of obesity and body fat distribution to lipoprotein concentrations in members of the Strong Heart Study.

Description

BACKGROUND:

The Strong Heart Study is a longitudinal cohort study of several American Indian groups in three participating centers. The overall aim of the main study is to determine the role of various risk factors in the development of cardiovascular disease in this native American population.

DESIGN NARRATIVE:

Data from the first and second clinical exams of the Strong Heart Study were analyzed to determine if body fat distribution as measured by waist-to-hip circumference was a better correlate of lipoproteins than was body mass index. In addition, change in body mass index (BMI) and waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) were correlated with change in lipoproteins.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pathological conditions involving the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM including the HEART; the BLOOD VESSELS; or the PERICARDIUM.

Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases or dysfunction of the cardiovascular system or its organs or demonstration of their physiological processes.

Diseases of long duration and generally slow progression. The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (e.g., heart attacks and stroke), CANCER, chronic respiratory diseases (e.g., CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and ASTHMA) and DIABETES MELLITUS.

Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)

Dental care for patients with chronic diseases. These diseases include chronic cardiovascular, endocrinologic, hematologic, immunologic, neoplastic, and renal diseases. The concept does not include dental care for the mentally or physically disabled which is DENTAL CARE FOR DISABLED.
