Highlights in Cardiology

Statin use associated with decreased mortality in HFPEF

Based on a meta-analysis reported in the American Journal of Cardiology, statin use by patients (n=17985) with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) is associated with a 40% reduction in mortality.

Fructosamine and glycated albumin predict incident diabetes

As reported in The Lancet, fructosamine and glycated albumin > 95th percentile predicted incident diabetes (HR=4.96 and 6.17, respectively) and retinopathy and chronic kidney disease among 958 and 11348 patients with and without diabetes, respectively, followed for 20 years.

Vitamin D supplementation improves ejection fraction

As reported in Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Diseases, vitamin D supplementation (4000 IU/d of cholecalciferol x 6 months) of vitamin D-deficient heart failure patients (n=23) resulted in an increase in the ejection fraction compared to placebo (6.7 vs. -4.3%).
