L-Carnitine and long-chain acylcarnitines are positively correlated with ambulatory blood pressure in humans: the SABPA study
The prevalence of hypertension in sub-Saharan Africa is increasing rapidly, and treatment remains challenging. Although the use of l-carnitine in treatment has received much attention, studies reporting on physiological ...
The relationship of nitric oxide synthesis capacity, oxidative stress, and albumin-to-creatinine ratio in black and white men: the SABPA study
Inadequate substrate availability and increased nitric oxide synthase inhibitor levels attenuate nitric oxide (NO) synthesis, whereas increased vascular oxidative stress may lead to inactivation of NO. We compared markers ...
Sex hormones associated with subclinical kidney damage and atherosclerosis in South African men: the SABPA study
Background: Hypertension and increased blood glucose are associated with subclinical kidney damage, atherosclerosis and with low testosterone values. Low testosterone in men is often accompanied by increased levels of ...
Cornell product relates to albuminuria in hypertensive black adults independently of blood pressure: the SABPA study
Evidence of the relationship between left ventricular hypertrophy and urinary albumin excretion is contradictory and limited in black adults in whom hypertensive heart disease is common. We aimed to investigate the ...
Testosterone and acute stress are associated with fibrinogen and Von Willebrand factor in African men: the SABPA study
Background: Low testosterone, acute and chronic stress and hypercoagulation are all associated with hypertension and hypertension-related diseases. The interaction between these factors and future risk for coronary ...
Low testosterone and hyperkinetic blood pressure responses in a cohort of South African men: the SABPA study
(Taylor & Francis, 2013)
Hypertension (HT) and the metabolic syndrome are major problems in Africa. The role of sex hormones in the cardiovascular profile of black Africans in South Africa has not been studied. Our objective was to study the ...
