This is one of the conclusions shown in the research of Alberto Cordero of the School of Medicine, and the University Hospital, published in the American Journal of Hypertension, the Revista Española de Cardiología [Spanish Journal of Cardiology] and Medicina Clínica [Clinical Medicine].
The research group MESYAS (Metabolic Syndrome in Active Subjects), conducted a study of 19,041 active workers throughout Spain. Through these subjects, the project analyzed the incidence of metabolic syndrome, in conjunction with cardiovascular risk factors which tend to appear in the same individual, in order to obtain a common related physiopathology. Within the mutual periodic revisions, it was discovered that 12% presented this problem. The major impact of cardiovascular illness is the reduction of productivity and the elevation of mortality.
On the other hand, it was demonstrated that arterial hypertension, the alterations of the glucose metabolism, hypertriglyceridemia (excess of triglycerides in the blood) and metabolic syndrome, are the cardiovascular risk factors most associated with excessive weight and obesity. Furthermore, pre-hypertension, involving sustained blood pressure levels between 120-139 mmHg and 80-89 mmHg, affects 47% of active workers. He therefore concludes, according to his analysis, that there is a connection between metabolic syndrome and minor degrees of renal dysfunction.
Metabolic Syndrome and cardiovascular illness
The metabolic syndrome has acquired increasing interest in the area of prevention. In the first place, this syndrome is associated with the development of diabetes, closely linked to arterial thrombosis; and in the second place, it is a self-generating spur for acute myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular incidents, and peripheral arteriopathy.
Diverse research groups from the department of Cardiology at the University Hospital are working to fight against these illnesses, which have become the primary cause of death in the world. From their results, it can be ascertained that metabolic syndrome constitutes the principal risk factor for cardiopathic blood clots in certain groups of patients, such as those suffering from obesity, or mellitus diabetes.

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
