1. Highly prevalent and poorly controlled cardiovascular risk factors among Chinese elderly people living in the rural community.

    European Journal of Preventive Cardiology 21(10):1267 (2014) PMID 23598595

    The epidemiological scenario of cardiovascular risk factors (CRFs) among elderly people in rural China is unclear. We seek to describe the distribution, burden and management of major CRFs among older Chinese people living in the rural community. This cross-sectional study included 1538 particip...

  3. Association between lipid profile and depressive symptoms among Chinese older people: mediation by cardiovascular diseases?

    International Journal of Behavioral Medicine 21(4):590 (2014) PMID 24136399

    The potential mediating effect of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) (e.g., ischemic heart disease and stroke) on the association between abnormal serum lipids and late-life depressive symptoms has not been investigated. We aimed to examine the associations between serum lipids and elevated depressi...

  5. Vascular risk factor burden, atherosclerosis, and functional dependence in old age: a population-based study.

    International Journal of Behavioral Medicine 21(4):597 (2014) PMID 24057410

    Vascular risk factors such as hypertension and obesity have been associated with physical limitations among older adults. The purpose of this study is to examine whether individual and aggregated vascular risk factors (VRFs) are associated with functional dependence and to what extent carotid at...

  7. Metabolic syndrome and subclinical carotid atherosclerosis among Chinese elderly people living in a rural community.

    Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders 12(5):269 (2014) PMID 24588080

    The relationship between the metabolic syndrome and subclinical atherosclerosis among elderly people remains controversial. We seek to investigate the associations of metabolic syndrome and its components with subclinical carotid atherosclerosis in older people living in rural China. This cross-...

  10. Cardiovascular risk factor profiles for peripheral artery disease and carotid atherosclerosis among Chinese older people: a population-based study.

    PLoS ONE 9(1):e85927 (2014) PMID 24465793 PMCID PMC3895010

    Epidemiological data concerning atherosclerotic disease among older people in rural China are sparse. We seek to determine prevalence and cardiovascular risk factor profiles for peripheral artery disease (PAD) and carotid atherosclerosis (CAS) among Chinese older people living in a rural communi...
