Heart Trouble Later In The Life For Women With Preterm Delivery
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in every four deaths in the United States is due to cardiovascular disease, a leading cause of death for both men and women. A study by researchers shows the mother of the premature baby is at a greater risk of the development of cardiovascular disease later in her life. Preterm delivery is an early warning signal for mother's heart health in coming years as heart diseases develop over a lifetime, according to the author of the study. Researchers say this premature delivery factor is independent of all other risk factors such as preeclampsia, blood pressure and diabetes. The researchers reviewed information of more than 70,000 women and results are adjusted after considering factors such as age, race, lifestyle etc. The study results show
- Mother to babies born before 37 weeks are at 40 percent increased risk of the development of heart disease compared with mother to babies born after 37 weeks
- Mother to babies born before 32 weeks are at double risk of the development of cardiovascular disease
- Risks will be stronger if the women deliver more than one preterm baby
Researchers say more studies are required to find out the connection between preterm delivery and heart health risks. The first author of the study is Lauren Tanz, an analyst at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and the study findings were published in the American Heart Association journal Circulation.
Preeclampsia : Previously known as toxemia, a dangerous pregnancy complication which develops after 20 weeks of pregnancy marked with the presence of protein in the urine and high blood pressure. This complication may cause serious complications to both mother and baby.
Curing Hepatitis C Reduces The Risk Of Kidney Failure
Hepatitis C infection can cause
A study by researchers from Spain shows
- Risk reduction to cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes (T2D) and kidney failure were resulted by curing hepatitis C infection in an individual with mono-infection.
- Risk reduction to the development of type ii diabetes (T2D) by curing hepatitis C infection in patients with HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infection.
- Hepatitis C infection treatment may not reduce risks to cancer, cardiovascular disease and other non-AIDS events in patients with HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infection.
- Extrahepatic (present outside the liver) effects to cure hepatitis C infection were not established in patients with hepatitis C and HIV co-infection.
Researchers conducted studies with 1625 individuals, 75 percent male, with an average age of 40 years. Researchers have done follow up studies for a median 5.4 years and came to above conclusions. The study findings were published in the journal Hepatology.
Cryoglobulinemia : Cryoglobulinemia is the condition where proteins in the blood found to be above usual count causing a cluster of proteins and protein deposits in the blood vessels. These deposits in blood vessels restrict the flow of blood. This causes damage to kidneys, liver, joints, muscles etc. This condition won't show any symptoms and happens in individuals with over 50 years of age. Studies could not establish reasons for cryoglobulinemia condition.
Renal failure : Renal failure is also known as renal insufficiency or kidney failure. It is a medical condition where kidneys fail to filter wastes from the blood.
