  1. 1. Epidemiological aspects of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality among individuals with diabetes: the relative importance of cardiovascular risk factors

    Author : Aidin Rawshani; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diabetes mellitus; Cardiovascular medicine; Epidemiology; Observational studies; Heart failure; Cardiovascular disease; Mortality; Type 1 diabetes mellitus; Type 2 diabetes mellitus; Machine learning;

    Abstract : Background: Long-term trends of cardiovascular complications and death among patients with diabetes have not been studied extensively. In addition, we aimed to examine the effect of multifactorial risk factor control, as well as optimal levels- and relative importance of cardiovascular risk factors, in patients with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the major health issues of our time. The prevalence of CVD is increasing, both in industrialized and in developing countries, and causes suffering and a decreased quality of life for millions of people worldwide. READ MORE

  3. 3. Snus use and mortality : associations, potential mechanisms, and socioeconomic aspects

    Author : Marja Lisa Byhamre; Patrik Wennberg; Marie Eriksson; Jan-Håkan Jansson; Magnus Lundbäck; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; snus; Swedish snuff; smokeless tobacco; mortality; cardiovascular; cancer; risk factor; metabolic syndrome; C-reactive protein; vitamin D; testosterone; family medicine; allmänmedicin; befolkningsstudier; Population studies; epidemiologi; Epidemiology; invärtesmedicin; Internal Medicine; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Snus is a smokeless tobacco product made of a moist powder of ground tobacco. It is used mainly in the Nordic countries, although increasingly popular internationally. The Swedish snus tradition dates back to the seventeenth century, and it is now used daily by about 23% of the male and 6% of the female population. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality : influence of fitness, fatness and genetic factors

    Abstract : BackgroundLow aerobic fitness and obesity are associated with atherosclerosis, and thereforegreatly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and early death. It has long been known that atherosclerosis my begin early in life. READ MORE

  5. 5. Smokeless Tobacco (Snus) and Cardiovascular Disease : Associations with Heart Failure and Prognosis after Myocardial Infarction

    Author : Gabriel Arefalk; Johan Sundström; Martin Holzmann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Snus; smokeless tobacco; nicotine; cardiovascular disease; heart failure; myocardial infarction; mortality; prognosis; epidemiology; Epidemiologi; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : Previous investigations of snus use (oral moist snuff, a Swedish form of smokeless tobacco) and cardiovascular disease have generally focused on atherosclerotic events such as myocardial infarction and stroke, likely because smoking is such a well-established risk factor for atherosclerotic disease. Smokeless administration of tobacco circumvents most of the atherogenic effects of the combusted products from smoked tobacco, but it is possible that the potent autonomic and hemodynamic effects of snus and nicotine per se are detrimental for cardiovascular tissues.
