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 ...
Cardiovascular health and the modifiable burden of incident myocardial infarction: The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-03-06)
Background: The American Heart Association has proposed an impact goal for the year 2020 to improve cardiovascular health by 20%. The objectives of the study were to assess the association between the proposed cardiovascular health metric score and incident myocardial infarction (MI) and to estimate the generalized impact fraction (GIF). <p>Methods: The health metric score was derived from ideal ...
Genetic variations in the Vitamin D receptor predict type 2 diabetes and myocardial infarction in a community-based population: The tromsø study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-23)
Background Though the associations between low serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels and health outcomes such as type 2 diabetes (T2D), myocardial infarction (MI), cancer, and mortality are well-studied, the effect of supplementation with vitamin D is uncertain. This may be related to genetic differences. Thus, rs7968585, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of the vitamin D receptor ...
