DHA Supplements to Improve Insulin Sensitivity in Obese Pregnant Women (The Omega-3 Pregnancy Study)

The effects of overweight and obesity during pregnancy on maternal and child health can be serious and long lasting. Overweight and obese women are more likely to develop gestational diabetes or pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure and proteinuria) during pregnancy and type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease after pregnancy. Also, children ...

Mechanisms of the Relaxation Response in Elderly Hypertensives

Systolic Hypertension is a disorder which is characterized by significant elevations in systolic blood pressure in association with normal diastolic blood pressure. Typically, this develops in individuals >50 years of age and is associated with an increased risk of stroke and myocardial infarction. While there are many effective therapies for ...

St. Vincent's Screening To Prevent Heart Failure Study

A large proportion of the population has substantial left ventricular dysfunction (LVD) and do not have symptoms (Stage B heart failure). For many of these patients, if identified and treated appropriately, it is possible to prevent the subsequent development of heart failure (HF). Although the current gold standard for detection ...

Effect of Electro-Acupuncture on Blood Pressure

The purpose of this study is to prove: (1) Myocardial ischemia, cardiac arrhythmias and hypertensive response at rest and provoked by stress are decreased by EA; (2) The mechanism of the ischemic response is an imbalance between myocardial oxygen supply and demand originating as an increase in autonomic nervous system ...

Type 2 Diabetes After Sleeve Gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: A Randomised Single Centre Study

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass operation combines restrictive and malabsorptive principles. It is the most commonly performed bariatric procedure worldwide (~ 50 %). Vertical (sleeve) gastrectomy on the other hand, is a purely restrictive procedure and has gained popularity and is now accepted as a valid procedure accounting for approximately five ...

Effectiveness of Avapro in Obese Normotensive/Hypertensive African Americans

Using a crossover design, we will compare the effects of a placebo to an angiotensin II receptor antagonist on the urinary sodium excretion response in obese normotensive subjects and untreated hypertensive African-Americans subjects. We expect that the urinary sodium excretion response to angiotensin II receptor antagonist therapy will be less ...

Health Education Using Text Messaging Prevents Hypertension in High Risk People

Prehypertension is a predisposing condition for morbidity in hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. This has been defined as a systolic pressure from 120 to 139 mmHg or a diastolic pressure of 80-89 mm hg. The prevalence of this condition estimated to be at least 2 times higher than hypertension and those ...
