Air pollution, diabetes and hypertension.
|Air pollution particularly with particulate matter has been linked to development of cardiovascular disease. The mechanism for these adverse effects is the oxidative stress and inflammation leading to plaque progression, endothelial dysfunction, impaired fibrinolysis and platelet hyper reactivity. Similarly particulate matter leads to development of cardiometabolic disorders like diabetes and hypertension.|
|Air pollution in 65 nonsmoking adults with metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance living in the Beijing metropolitan area. Cumulative fine particulate matter exposure were significantly associated with systolic blood pressure elevations, whereas cumulative black carbon exposure were significantly associated with ranges in elevations in diastolic blood pressure. Both black carbon and fine particulate matter were significantly associated with worsening insulin resistance. This data can be helpful in issuing public health warnings about adverse impact on cardiometabolic health and plan preventive strategies.|
|> Air pollution had been linked to respiratory disease and malignancy. Now data is coming about its possible role in cardiovascular diseases.|
|> Air pollution also has been linked to development of cardiometabolic disorder like hypertension and diabetes.|
|> In susceptible individuals, air pollution can cause elevation in blood pressure and increase insulin resistance causing dysglycemia.|
|> Future strategies can be planned to prevent adverse impact of air pollution.|
