Thyroid and Heart Failure

Giorgio Iervasi, Alessandro Pingitore

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 287

Both thyroid dysfunction and heart failure show a high prevalence in the adult population. Frequently, in clinical practice, a multidisciplinary approach is useful to optimize the management of patients with these conditions. Although there is no doubt regarding the close link between cardiovascular pathophysiology and thyroid homeostasis, our understanding of this association is far from being exhaustive. Thyroid hormone regulates the expression of cardiac-specific functional contractile and structural proteins and plays a pivotal role in modulating both diastolic and systolic function as well as peripheral vascular resistance. The close relationship between thyroid and heart dysfunction is strongly supported by recent evidence demonstrating that an altered thyroid profile is a negative prognostic predictor in patients with heart failure. The treatment of chronic heart failure, especially in advanced stages of the disease, continues to be an open and challenging field. The potential of novel thyroid hormone therapies that address the molecular biology of thyroid dysfunction and heart failure thus represents an attractive area of multidisciplinary scientific interest. This book is a readable, integrated, and highly up to date presentation of the clinical, pathophysiological, and basic science aspects of thyroid - heart failure interactions. It addresses a complex subject in an approach that targets a large audience of readers.

Lipid Disorders

Ian D. Young, Paul Nicholls

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 104

Over the past 20 years, effective treatments for lipid disorders have become available. With the high incidence of coronary artery disease in the developed world, interest in this area has greatly increased, and 10% of the UK population now qualify for lipid lowering treatment. It is therefore important that the rational use of lipid-lowering treatment is based on an understanding of the underlying metabolic problem. This comprehensive but concise guide makes basic lipid metabolism understandable to the reader without over-simplification. The often confusing classification of lipid disorders is explained clearly, and this book will appeal to cardiologists, trainees and all related healthcare professionals who are involved in prescribing lipid-lowering medications on a daily basis.

Obesity and Diabetes

Sudhesh Kumar, Tony Barnett

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 344

Type 2 diabetes, associated with obesity, is today the most common form of diabetes. It is also associated with a number of other cardiovascular risk factors which constitute the metabolic syndrome. Effective management of 'diabesity' is crucial to the reduction of morbidity and premature morbidity due to cardiovascular disease. Part of the successful 'Diabetes in Practice' series, Obesity and Diabetes Second Edition focuses on the link between diabetes and obesity, two of the most pressing health problems in the developed world. It covers topics ranging from the changing epidemiology of type 2 diabetes to an analysis of the principal causes of the metabolic syndrome.* Includes new chapters on obesity management in ethnic minorities and obesity issues in the workplace* Features many suggestions of practical value* Describes a contemporary approach to the clinical assessment of obesity and its management in both primary and secondary care settings* Covers emerging problems such as childhood "diabesity" and the impact of obesity on polycystic ovary syndrome* All chapters have been updated Obesity and Diabetes Second Edition addresses the management of obesity and diabetes in practical terms useful to clinicians with an interest in diabetes, both in primary and secondary care, general practitioners, paediatricians, endocrinologists and nutritionists, as well as to students and researchers interested in obesity.

Heart Disease and Diabetes

Miles Fisher

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 160

Cardiovascular disease is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in people with diabetes, and the routine management of patients with diabetes now includes close attention to the methods of controlling hyperglycaemia that bring about the maximum reduction in cardiovascular events. Once patients with diabetes develop cardiovascular disease there are specific considerations on the most appropriate cardiological treatment. Staff working in coronary care units and acute stroke units need to be familiar with the investigation and treatment of diabetes. This book details the complications that diabetes presents in relation to heart disease and discusses the possible treatments that can be explored.

L'obesità

Walter Milano

editore: Giovanni Fioriti Editore

Nelle prime fasi della vita alimentarsi non è un problema, basta affidarsi al seno materno. Poi, quando dobbiamo scegliere da soli, per sapere cosa mangiare dobbiamo affidarci alla cultura. Siamo costretti a fidarci della gastronomia che si è evoluta insieme alla nostra capacità di procurarci il cibo e di prepararlo, alle disponibilità presenti nelle nostre regioni, di quello che ci preparava la mamma da bambini o delle suggestioni della pubblicità. A complicarci ulteriormente le cose ci sono poi gli odori, i colori, i sapori dei cibi ma anche tutti gli altri infiniti significati di cui li abbiamo rivestiti e che poco o nulla hanno a che vedere con le loro caratteristiche nutrizionali. Pensare il cibo, nella nostra evoluzione, ci è stato di grande utilità ma oggi, a tavola, sicuramente non è un vantaggio.

Diabete e malattie cardiovascolari

Francesco Panemi, Francesco Cosentino

editore: Il Pensiero Scientifico

pagine: 108

L'aumento della prevalenza del diabete mellito è ormai esponenziale e il suo impatto sulle malattie cardiovascolari risulta sempre più evidente. Il paziente affetto da diabete presenta infatti un rischio notevolmente aumentato di sviluppare eventi cardiovascolari maggiori. Ciò è dovuto alla particolare aggressività della malattia aterosclerotica a livello dei vasi, favorita dalla disfunzione endoteliale legata allo stato iperglicemico. Inoltre, tali alterazioni patologiche risultano proporzionali ai livelli di glicemia e si manifestano quindi anche nel paziente non ancora diabetico, secondo un "continuum" tra glicemia ed eventi cardiovascolari. L'opera illustra, in quest'ottica, gli aspetti fisiopatologici e clinici della malattia cardiovascolare nel paziente con diabete mellito e sindrome metabolica, fornendo un approccio trasversale alla trattazione degli argomenti, dai meccanismi fisiopatologici fino ai risultati dei più recenti trial clinici. Ne deriva una comprensione globale del fenomeno che non include soltanto l'interpretazione del dato clinico ma è frutto di un'attenta analisi dei risultati della ricerca cardiovascolare nel diabete.

Agopuntura e obesità. Nuove tecniche per prevenirla e curarla

Bao Tian Fu

editore: Bracciali

pagine: 205

L'obesità è una malattia della società moderna e può portare rischi non solo per la bellezza ma anche per la salute. La dieta occidentale è innegabilmente funzionale ma spesso una volta finita la dieta il paziente ingrassa di nuovo. La medicina cinese invece può risolvere il problema definitivamente: sia dal punto di vista del metabolismo lento, sia della fame nervosa. Secondo la filosofia cinese per l'obesità non è importante il calcolo delle calorie giornaliere ma la distribuzione dei pasti durante la giornata: abbondanti dovrebbero essere colazione e pranzo mentre più scarsa la cena. Un antico proverbio cinese recita: alla mattina mangia come un Re, a pranzo come il figlio del Re ed a cena come un povero. Durante il processo di dimagrimento è utile inoltre unire la terapia dietologica con la giusta attività fisica e con il Qi gong (ci gun: ginnastica cinese). Lo scopo del libro è quello di diffondere sia a livello professionale che divulgativo la conoscenza di questo complesso campo utilizzando una terminologia accessibile a tutti e unendo le conoscenze in materia della medicina cinese ed occidentale per avere una visione totale del problema.

Management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

A Practical Guide

Richard Donnelly, Steven Levene

editore: Butterworth-Heinemann Ltd

pagine: 312

In the 21st Century, the management of type 2 diabetes has become even more important both in the primary health care setting and in the government's health policy. With the publication of the "National Service Framework" and the allied "National Clinical Guidelines", both patients and the government expect practices to deliver appropriate and effective care to a high standard. This book is aimed at all members of the primary health care team and concentrates on providing practical advice. Greater knowledge and skills will promote the delivery of high quality care to patients with type 2 diabetes in the community and, hopefully, reduce the impact of cardiovascular disease in this high risk group.This handbook addresses many concepts important in the day-to-day management of these patients. In addition to the discussion of specific medical management of type 2 diabetes (including the improvement of cardiovascular risk factors), the book explores the use of self-management techniques, the consultation process, and the use of psychological techniques to influence health-related behavior. All aspects of the text are linked, when appropriate, to the GMS contract.
