Stability and predictors of change in salivary cortisol measures over six years: The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
All features of the daily cortisol curve changed significantly over the approximately six year follow-up period—the wakeup cortisol became higher; the cortisol awakening response became smaller; both the early and late decline became flatter and the area under the curve became larger.Read on Pubmed
Lower adiponectin is associated with subclinical cardiovascular disease among HIV-infected men.
Adiponectin levels were lower in HIV-infected men and related to the severity of subclinical atherosclerosis, independent of traditional CVD risk factors.Read on Pubmed
Relationship between the cortisol awakening response and other features of the diurnal cortisol rhythm: the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
Bedtime cortisol showed the strongest correlation with total cortisol area under the curve, suggesting it may be a marker of daily cortisol exposure.Read on Pubmed
25-Hydroxyvitamin D and parathyroid hormone are not associated with carotid intima-media thickness or plaque in the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis.
The consistent lack of association of vitamin D and parathyroid hormone with carotid intima-media thickness and plaque suggests that these hormones may influence cardiovascular risk through pathways not reflected by carotid atherosclerosis.
Relationship between the cortisol awakening response and other features of the diurnal cortisol rhythm: The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
Researchers for this study conclude that bedtime cortisol showed the strongest correlation with total cortisol area under the curve, suggesting it may be a marker of daily cortisol exposure.Read on Pubmed
Sex steroid levels and response to weight loss interventions among postmenopausal women in the Diabetes Prevention Program.
This study found that, among nonestrogen users, baseline sex steroids were not associated with reductions in weight or waistline circumference.
The association of elective hormone therapy with changes in lipids among glucose intolerant postmenopausal women in the diabetes prevention program.
It is unclear how lipids change in response to lifestyle modification or metformin among postmenopausal glucose intolerant women using and not using hormone therapy (HT). We examined the one-year changes in lipids among postmenopausal, prediabetic women in the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), and whether changes were mediated by sex hormones. The beneficial effects of ILS and metformin on lowering LDL-C and raising HDL-C differ depending upon concurrent HT use.
Thyroid hormones and electrocardiographic parameters: findings from the third national health and nutrition examination survey.
Variation in thyroid hormone levels in the general population, even within the normal range, was associated with various changes in electrocardiograms.
Diurnal salivary cortisol is associated with body mass index and waist circumference: the multiethnic study of atherosclerosis.
Researchers showed that higher body mass index and waistline circumference are associated with neuroendocrine dysregulation, which is present in a large population sample, and only partially explained by other covariates.Read on Pubmed
Racial/ethnic differences in sex hormone levels among postmenopausal women in the diabetes prevention program.
This study found that, among postmenopausal women, there were significant race/ethnicity differences in baseline sex hormones and changes in sex hormones.
