Importance of high triglycerides levels between novel coronary risk factors
(Sociedad Colombiana de Cardiología y Cirugía Cardiovascular., 2017-11)
Introduction: The analysis of new cardiovascular risk factors is under an extensive debate in the cardiology and metabolic research fields. Objective: To determine the main factors that contribute to the classification of individuals with higher coronary risk in the adult population from Maracaibo, Venezuela. Methods: A descriptive, cross-sectional study with multistage random sampling in 1379 individuals belonging to the Maracaibo City Metabolic Syndrome Prevalence Study (MMSPS) was performed. They were classified according to the coronary ...
Optimal cutoff for the evaluation of insulin resistance through triglyceride-glucose index: A cross-sectional study in a Venezuelan population [version 1; referees: awaiting peer review]
(F1000 Research Ltd., 2017-08-07)
Background: Insulin resistance (IR) evaluation is a fundamental goal in clinical and epidemiological research. However, the most widely used methods are difficult to apply to populations with low incomes. The triglyceride-glucose index (TGI) emerges as an alternative to use in daily clinical practice. Therefore the objective of this study was to determine an optimal cutoff point for the TGI in an adult population from Maracaibo, Venezuela. Methods: This is a sub-study of Maracaibo City Metabolic Syndrome Prevalence Study, a descriptive, ...
Efecto del consumo de alimentos preparados en el hogar y adquiridos en la escuela sobre el perfil lipídico de escolares en Maracaibo, Venezuela
(Cooperativa servicios y suministros 212518 RS, 2018)
Propósito: En décadas recientes, ha aumentado en la población infantil la prevalencia de enfermedades como obesidad y dislipidemias, de manera atribuible a prácticas propias de la sociedad occidentalizada. Esto incluye sobreingesta calórica, incluso en el desayuno, una particularmente importante para ésta demografía. Por lo tanto, el objetivo de este estudio fue analizar efecto del consumo de alimentos preparados en el hogar (APH) o alimentos adquiridos en la institución educativa (AIE) y la ingesta nutricional diaria en el perfil lipídico ...
Biochemical and clinical characterization of metabolic phenotypes: a cross-sectional study from Maracaibo city, Venezuela [version 1; referees: awaiting peer review]
(is published by F1000 Research Ltd, 2018-02)
Background: In 1980, Reuben Andresen observed that in certain individuals, obesity did not increase mortality, introducing an atypical phenotype called “healthy obese”. Other studies reported that 10-15 % of lean individuals presented insulin resistance, hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia. The objective of this study was to evaluate biochemical and clinical characteristics of metabolic phenotypes in Maracaibo city. Methods: A descriptive, cross-sectional study with a randomized multistage sampling was performed including 1226 non diabetic ...
Insulin resistance indices and coronary risk in adults from Maracaibo city, Venezuela: A cross sectional study [version 1; referees: 1 approved with reservations]
(is published by F1000 Research Ltd, 2018-03)
Background: Insulin resistance (IR) is a metabolic disorder related to atherosclerosis. Its measurement is of great importance not only as a marker of diabetes but also for cardiovascular disease. The aim of this research study was to evaluate the relationship between various IR indices and coronary risk in an adult population from Maracaibo city, Venezuela. Methods: The Maracaibo City Metabolic Syndrome Prevalence Study is a descriptive, cross-sectional study with random and multi-stage sampling. In this sub study, 1272 individuals of ...
