Effects of Pioglitazone Treatment on Sympathetic Nervous System Function in Metabolic Syndrome Obesity

The rapidly growing burden of obesity together with a population that is becoming older raises the importance of effective strategies for the primary prevention and treatment of the metabolic syndrome in order to combat the epidemic of type 2 diabetes and to reduce the increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. Increased ...

Collaborative Care for Heart Failure Patients With the Metabolic Syndrome

A striking feature of the Harris County Hospital District heart failure population is that the prevalence of obesity (50.8%) and the metabolic syndrome (48.9%) exceeds that of the general U.S. population.

Phase N/A

Regression of Fatty Heart by Valsartan Therapy

Basic science in animal models of genetic obesity have demonstrated that obese, insulin resistant animals have fatty hearts with reduced functional ability. More importantly, insulin sensitizing treatment of prediabetic rats delayed development of diabetes and improved heart function. A primary aim of our laboratory is to translate basic animal research, ...
