[…]

Diabetes Can Independently Lead To Heart Failure

New York: Heart problems are a common development for people with diabetes and now researchers have found that diabetes is an independent risk factor for the development of heart failure in the community-dwelling population. According to health expert in India, if poorly controlled, diabetes leads to cardiomyopathy resulting in progressive deterioration of pumping capacity of […]

Genes Linked To Heart Failure Identified

London: Researchers have found the way for earlier identification of people at risk of heart failure and development of new treatments. The research team applied an artificial intelligence (AI) technique to analyse the heart MRI images of 17,000 healthy UK Biobank volunteers and found that genetic factors accounted for 22-39 per cent of variation in […]

Insomnia linked to increased risk of heart failure

London: People suffering from insomnia might have an increased risk of coronary artery disease, heart failure and stroke, says a study. According to researchers, previous observational studies have found an association between insomnia, which affects up to 30 per cent of the general population and an increased risk of developing heart disease and stroke. “These […]

Diabetic women at greater risk of heart failure than men

New Delhi: While doctors know that diabetes raises the risk of heart failure, a global study of 12 million people has found that this risk is greater for women than men. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), currently 415 million adults world-wide live with diabetes – with approximately 199 million of them being women. […]

HIV infection ups risk of heart failure, stroke

New York: People living with HIV are at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases (CVD), particularly heart failure and stroke, warn researchers. “Our findings reinforce the importance of primary prevention of cardiovascular disease through control of risk factors such as high blood pressure or smoking in persons living with HIV,” said study lead author […]

Exercise helps boost heart failure patients' memory

London: Heart patients who exercise regularly and have better fitness are likely to have less cognitive impairment, says a study. Fitter patients have better memory, it adds. “The message for the patients with heart failure is to do exercises,” said study author Ercole Vellone, Professor at University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy.

Iodised salt not necessarily be good for health

Agra: While universal iodisation of salt helped control iodine deficiency disorders, it could be increasing the risk of high blood pressure — a leading cause of heart ailments — especially in the elderly, says retired Col Rajesh Chauhan, in his latest book. The book, titled “Could universal iodisation of salt be the chief cause of […]

High testosterone levels can raise heart failure risk in men

New York: Men with genetic predisposition to high testosterone levels could be at increased risk of developing blood clots and heart failure, a study has found. The study, led by City University of New York researchers, aimed to determine whether endogenous testosterone has a causal role in blood clots (thromboembolism), heart failure and heart attack […]

Researchers develop device to reduce chemotherapy's harmful side effects

New York: Researchers have developed a new 3D-printed device that could help reduce side effects of chemotherapy such as hair loss, nausea and heart failure. Although chemotherapy can kill cancer cells very effectively, healthy cells also get affected. But if excess chemotherapy drugs could be removed from a patient’s bloodstream after they have worked, they […]

Moderate drinking not harmful for elderly patients with heart failure

New York: Elderly people above 65 who are newly diagnosed with heart failure can continue moderate alcohol drinking without worsening their condition, a new study suggests.

Regular flu shots might save heart failure patients

London: Annual flu vaccination is regarded as a safe and low-cost way to improve survival rate among elderly heart failure patients, according to a new research. The findings, published in the journal Circulation, showed that flu vaccination was associated with an 18 per cent reduced risk of premature death and a 19 per cent reduction […]

Extremely high BP in diabetics linked to severe organ damage

New York: Patients with diabetes suffering from extremely high blood pressure (BP) could be at risk of organ damage due to hypertensive emergencies such as stroke, chest pain and heart failure, finds a study. The study showed that acute or worsening heart failure was the most frequent target organ injury (49.6 per cent) followed by […]

Commonly used chemotherapy drug can lead to heart failure: Study

London: A chemotherapy drug, widely used for treatment of ovarian, bladder, lung, thyroid and stomach cancers, has the potential to cause heart toxicity that can lead to congestive heart failure, a study led by a professor of Indian origin, has found. In the study, conducted on mice, doxorubicin induced fibrosis in the heart, increased the programmed […]

Air pollution may lead to changes in heart structure

London: Researchers have found that people exposed to even low levels of air pollution can have changes in the structure of the heart, similar to those seen in the early stages of heart failure. For every one extra microgram per cubic metre of PM2.5 — small particles of air pollution — and for every 10 […]

Smoking raises lifetime risk of irregular heart rate

New York: Smoking and alcohol consumption increase lifetime risk of a rapid and irregular heart rate, called atrial fibrillation, which can lead to a stroke, dementia, heart failure and other complications, a new study says.

Know the app that monitors advanced heart failure patients

New York: Researchers have developed a clinical decision support application that monitors heart failure patients’ medical tests, health status and promptly notifies clinicians when their conditions have changed or when they require advanced disease therapies.
