A Combined Cross-sectional and Longitudinal Study of Predicting Metabolic Syndrome and Cardiovascular Disease by Using Haemoglobin in the Elderly

Synopsis: 
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) has an important implication from a preventive medicine perspective, as early recognition and intervention will reduce associated mortality and morbidity. To better identify patients at risk for developing MetS and cardiovascular disease, we conducted a combined cross-sectional and longitudinal study to shed light on the elevated haemoglobin (Hb) levels in the elderly. Haemoglobin is associated with MetS. Elevated Hb with a cut-off value of 14.6 and 13.7 for males and females respectively; can potentially be used as a marker to stratify the risks of developing MetS for both genders and cardiovascular disease in the female population.

Anthropometry and Blood Pressure Changes in a Caribbean Adolescent Population of African Ancestry. An Evaluation of Longitudinal Data Using a Multilevel Mixed Regression Approach

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.002

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of growth pattern on blood pressure changes in an adolescent population of African ancestry based on longitudinal data and to compare this with estimates derived from cross-sectional data.

Anthropometry and Blood Pressure Changes in a Caribbean Adolescent Population of African Ancestry: An Evaluation of Longitudinal Data Using a Multilevel Mixed Regression Approach

Pages: 
674–83
Synopsis: 
The effect of anthropometry on longitudinal blood pressure changes was evaluated and compared to similar estimates generated from cross-sectional data from the same population. Findings suggest that anthropometry is an important covariate of blood pressure changes during adolescence and that age-related mean blood pressure changes from longitudinal data were similar to those generated by cross-sectional data.

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of growth pattern on blood pressure changes in an adolescent population of African ancestry based on longitudinal data and to compare this with estimates derived from cross-sectional data.
