N-Acetyl-β-D-Glucosaminidase Does Not Enhance Prediction of Cardiovascular or All-Cause Mortality by Albuminuria in a Low-Risk Population
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-06-05)
Albuminuria is a well known risk factor for cardiovascular disease and mortality, but focus on renal tubular dysfunction as a potential risk factor is growing also. The association between the urinary activity of N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) and cardiovascular risk has been assessed mostly in cross-sectional studies. We studied the cross-sectional associations between urinary NAG and cardiovascular ...

(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-01-31)
Aims: To investigate whether serum uric acid predicts adverse outcomes in persons with indices of diastolic dysfunction in a general population. <br>Methods and results: We performed a prospective cohort study among 1460 women and 1480 men from 1994 to 2013. End- points were all-cause mortality, incident myocardial infarction, and incident ischaemic stroke. We strati fi ed the analyses ...
