Drinking coffee and risk of CVD and IHD mortality

2018-04-12T11:38:43+00:00

Coffee associated with lower chance of ischemic heart disease Consumption of coffee, one of the most popular beverages around the world, has been associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in population-based studies. However, little is known about these associations in patient populations. This prospective study aimed to examine the consumption of caffeinated and [...]

Dietary fatty acid intake and theoretical substitution

2018-04-12T11:38:51+00:00

Dietary fatty acid substitution theoretically associated with lower risk of ischemic heart disease The replacement of saturated fatty acids (SFAs) with unsaturated fatty acids (UFAs), especially polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), has been associated with a lower risk of ischemic heart disease (IHD). Whether this replacement is beneficial for drug-treated patients with cardiac disease is [...]

Kidney function and specific mortality

2018-04-12T11:38:54+00:00

Reduced kidney function associated with higher mortality Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is highly prevalent among older post-myocardial infarction (MI) patients, but it was not yet known whether CKD is an independent risk factor for mortality in older post-MI patients with optimal cardiovascular drug-treatment. Therefore, we studied the relationship between kidney function and all-cause and [...]

Healthy eating and lower mortality risk

2018-04-12T11:38:56+00:00

Healthy eating associated with lower mortality risk We aimed to assess whether healthy eating lowers the risk of CVD and all-cause mortality in cardiac patients, since little is known about dietary scores and mortality risk in cardiac patients who are treated well with drugs (with a relatively low risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs)). For [...]
