Insulin requirements in non-critically ill hospitalized diabetic patients with steroid-induced hyperglycemia.

By: Spanakis E, Shah N, Malhotra K, Yeh HC, Golden SH.

Noncritically ill patients with hyperglycemia receiving steroids require a higher percentage of TDD insulin therapy as nutritional insulin to achieve normoglycemia.

Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease: what next?

By: Joseph JJ, Golden SH.

CVD in Type 2 diabetes is multifactorial and requires a multifaceted approach in reducing known cardiovascular risks, at both the individual patient and societal levels.

Insulin requirements in non-critically ill hospitalized patients with diabetes and steroid-induced hyperglycemia.

By: Spanakis EK, Shah N, Malhotra K, Kemmerer T, Yeh HC, Golden SH.

Noncritically ill patients with hyperglycemia receiving steroids require a higher percentage of total daily dose insulin therapy as nutritional insulin to achieve normoglycemia.

Physical environment may modify the association between depressive symptoms and change in waist circumference: the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis.

By: Remigio-Baker RA, Diez Roux AV, Szklo M, Crum RM, Leoutsakos JM, Franco M, Schreiner PJ, Carnethon MR, Nettleton JA, Mujahid MS, Michos ED, Gary-Webb TL, Golden SH.

Elevated depressive symptoms were associated with greater increase in waist circumference among individuals living in poorly rated physical environments than in those in better-rated physical environments.

Impact of a pharmacy-based glucose management program on glycemic control in an inpatient general medicine population.

By: Efird LE, Golden SH, Visram K, Shermock K.
This study found no global benefit of the pharmacy-based glucose management program for improving blood glucose values compared with usual care.

Race/ethnic difference in diabetes and diabetic complications.

By: Spanakis EK, Golden SH.

This study's data provide novel updates on race/ethnic differences in children and adults with type 1 diabetes, children with type 2 diabetes, and in Latino subpopulations.

Association of depressive symptoms and anti-depressants with body mass index and waist circumference in elderly men and women: The ARIC Carotid MRI Study.

By: Golden SH, Hsu H, Astor BC, Malhotra S, Wand GS, Wasserman BA.

Depressive symptoms are associated with obesity, a precursor to type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and might in part explain the association of depressive symptoms with adverse metabolic outcomes. We determined the cross-sectional association between depressive symptoms and body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) in 1,314 elderly men and women age 60 to 83 years in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Carotid MRI Study.

Creating a transdisciplinary research center to reduce cardiovascular health disparities in Baltimore, Maryland: Lessons learned.

By: Cooper LA, Boulware LE, Miller ER, Golden SH, Carson KA, Noronha G, Huizinga MM, Roter DL, Yeh HC, Bone LR, Levine DM, Hill-Briggs F, Charleston J, Kim MT, Wang NY, Aboumatar HJ, Halbert JP, Ephraim PL, Brancati FL.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) disparities continue to have a negative impact on African Americans in the United States, largely because of uncontrolled hypertension. Despite the availability of evidence-based interventions, their use has not been translated into clinical and public health practice. The Johns Hopkins Center to Eliminate Cardiovascular Health Disparities is a new transdisciplinary research program with a stated goal to lower the impact of CVD disparities on vulnerable populations in Baltimore, Maryland. By targeting multiple levels of influence on the core problem of disparities in Baltimore, the center leverages academic, community, and national partnerships and a novel structure to support 3 research studies and to train the next generation of CVD researchers. We also share the early lessons learned in the center's design.

Relationship between the cortisol awakening response and other features of the diurnal cortisol rhythm: the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.

By: Golden SH, Sánchez BN, Wu M, Champaneri S, Diez Roux AV, Seeman T, Wand GS.
Bedtime cortisol showed the strongest correlation with total cortisol area under the curve, suggesting it may be a marker of daily cortisol exposure.
