1. Advanced fibrosis associates with atherosclerosis in subjects with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

    Atherosclerosis 241(1):145 (2015) PMID 25988358

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD) with advanced fibrosis usually has a deteriorated prognosis, which was mainly attributed to cardiovascular cause. We investigated whether advanced fibrosis assessed by noninvasive fibrosis markers was associated with subclinical atherosclerosis in NAFLD patients....

  3. Serum lipoprotein (a) concentrations are inversely associated with T2D, prediabetes, and insulin resistance in a middle-aged and elderly Chinese population.

    Journal of Lipid Research 56(4):920 (2015) PMID 25649924 PMCID PMC4373748

    Lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)], an LDL-like particle, has been proposed as a causal risk factor for CVD among general populations. Meanwhile, both serum Lp(a) and diabetes increase the risk of CVD. However, the relationship between serum Lp(a) and T2D is poorly characterized, especially in the Asian po...

  6. Nesfatin-1 correlates with hypertension in overweight or obese Han Chinese population.

    Clinical and Experimental Hypertension 37(1):51 (2015) PMID 24678977

    Abstract We investigated blood nesfatin-1 levels in hypertension patients. We found that fasting plasma nesfatin-1 levels were significantly higher in hypertension patients than in control groups, especially in overweight/obese hypertension patients (4.5 ± 2.1 versus 3.3 ± 1.1 ng/ml, p < 0.01). ...

  11. Awareness, treatment and control of cardiometabolic disorders in Chinese adults with diabetes: a national representative population study.

    Cardiovascular Diabetology 14(1):28 (2015) PMID 25848699 PMCID PMC4356058

    The diagnosis of diabetes has important clinic implications for the prevention and management of cardiometabolic disorders. We aimed to investigate the awareness, treatment and control of hypertension and dyslipidemia in previously-diagnosed and newly-diagnosed diabetes in Chinese adult populati...

  14. Plasma ghrelin concentrations are negatively correlated with urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes.

    American Journal of the Medical Sciences 348(5):382 (2014) PMID 24875659

    Aging is associated with a decrease in appetite, energy intake and glucose tolerance. Experimental studies have suggested that ghrelin and obestatin play a role in glucose homeostasis and in the regulation of energy metabolism. However, few studies have been performed on the role of ghrelin and ...
