Hypertension treatment guidelines for elderly
Frontiers in Physiology IF4. Several studies have confirmed that obesity OBhyperlipidemia HLor diabetes mellitus DM can increase severity, mortality, and complications in AP.
However, there is no comprehensive information on the independent or joint effect of MetS components on the outcome of AP. Our aims were 1 to understand whether the components of MetS have an independent effect on the outcome of AP and 2 to examine the joint effect of their combinations.
The primary endpoints were mortality, severity, complications of AP, and length of hospital stay.
Results patients The presence of OB was an independent predictive factor for renal failure [OR: 2. HL increased the risk of local complications [OR: 1.
No relation was found between the presence of DM and the outcome of AP. The presence of two, three, or four MetS factors increased the incidence of an unfavorable outcome compared to patients with no MetS factors. HT is an independent risk factor for severity as well. Components of MetS strongly synergize each other's detrimental effect.
It is important to search for and follow up on the components of MetS in AP.
