New risk score for cardiovascular mortality in frail elderly people with type 2 diabetes

Vasovic Olga

Background: Cardiovascular mortality is the leading cause of death in elderly people with diabetes. Traditional cardiovascular risk factors are not principal predictors for cardiovascular events in frail elderly.Aim: This prospective study examined biomarkers associated with cardiovascular mortality in 253 community dwelling elderly aged 65 to 99 years. Patients were divided into four main groups: GROUP A-Patients with type 2 diabetes and history of MACE...

Lipid risk factors for cardiovascular mortality and chronic inflammation in functionally dependent elderly persons

Vasovic Olga

Introduction: Many studies have pointed to the importance of chronic inflammation and dyslipidemia in the development of atherosclerosis, but data related to the elderly population are still inconsistent. The aim of the work: To determine the importance of determination of markers of inflammation (C-reactive protein - CRP) and lipid status in elderly (≥65 years), functionally dependent persons.Methods: A prospective study that included 257 patients...

Djurovic Marina , Pereira Alberto , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Vasovic Olga , Pavlovic Dragan , Petakov Milan , Miljic Dragana , Damjanovic Svetozar

Introduction: Thyroid dysfunction may cause various psychiatric symptoms and disturbances. In addition, many factors affect the variable responses to hormone replacement. Many patients treated for Hashimoto thyroiditis(HT) report persistent impairments in general well-being despite long-term L-thyroxine (LT4) replacement and restoration of biochemical euthyroidism.Aim: To investigate the prevalence of depression and anxiety in patients with HT on long-te...

Quality of life in primary hypothyroidism after long-term levothyroxine replacement

Djurovic Marina , Pereira Alberto , Vasovic Olga , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Pavlovic Dragan , Petakov Milan , Salak Biljana , Damjanovic Svetozar

Introduction: There is an increasing awareness for intrinsic imperfections of endocrine replacement therapy affecting general well-being in the long-term. For thyroid hormone, many factors affect the variable responses to hormone replacement, like common genetic variations in deiodinase and thyroid hormone transport proteins, and the inability to provide adequate individual combined T4 and T3 therapy. Despite levothyroxine (L-T4)...

Metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular risk in frail elderly people

Vasovic Olga , Lalic Katarina , Trifunovic Danijela , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Djurovic Marina Nikolic

Introduction: Objective of this study was to examine the importance of metabolic syndrome (MetS) as a predictor of cardiovascular mortality in frail elderly people.Methods: Participants of the study were 253 community dwelling elderly aged 65–99 years. It was a prospective study with 32 months follow-up period. Patients were divided into four main groups according to the presence of MetS and prior major cardiovascular event (MACE): group A – pa...

Cognitive status, anxiety and depression in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus on selective DPP4 inhibitor therapy

Djurovic Marina Nikolic , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Vasovic Olga , Pekic Sandra , Miljic Dragana , Stojanovic Marko , Djokic Biljana Salak , Krljanac Gordana , Petakov Milan

Introduction: Cognitive functions and mood (anxiety and depression) are often impaired in diabetes mellitus (DM). Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor (DPP-4) has been shown to exert beneficial effects on insulin sensitivity and glycoregulation in T2DM patients. Introducing DPP-4 therapy leads to maintaining control of glucose levels which could ameliorate or slow down further cognitive and mood disorders impairment.Aim: To evaluate influence of selective DP...

Cognitive functions in primary hypothyroidism on selenium supplementation

Nikolic-Djurovic Marina , Pereira Alberto , Smit Johannes , Vasovic Olga , Jemuovic Zvezdana , Damjanovic Svetozar , Asanin Milika , Pavlovic Dragan , Jankovic Dragana , Pekic Sandra , Miljic Dragana , Stojanovic Marko , Petakov Milan

Introduction: Selenium (Se) is a trace element that plays key roles in thyroid pathology. In patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT), Se supplementation might reduce antibody levels and may provide additional beneficial effects, such as on cognition.Aim: To evaluate cognitive function (cognitive decline) in patients on long-term levothyroxine replacement for primary hypothyroidism with and without selenium supplementation.Design: ...
