To determine the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (MS) in an Iranian elderly population and show its association with coronary heart disease (CHD).
Reduction in incidence of type 2 diabetes by lifestyle intervention in a middle eastern community.
Very few studies have used community-based interventions for primary prevention of Type 2 diabetes, and the direct effect of such interventions on diabetes incidence is relatively unknown.
Transportability of the updated diabetes prediction model from Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study to a Middle Eastern adult population: community-based cohort study.
We validated the transportability of the updated diabetes prediction model from Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study, to a Middle Eastern population. We investigated 3,721 participants of the Tehran Lipid and ...
New and known type 2 diabetes as coronary heart disease equivalent: results from 7.6 year follow up in a Middle East population.
To investigate whether the known diabetes mellitus (KDM) or newly diagnosed diabetes mellitus (NDM) could be regarded as a coronary heart disease (CHD) risk equivalent among a relatively young Middle East population with ...
"Predictability of body mass index for diabetes: affected by the presence of metabolic syndrome?".
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) and body mass index (BMI, kg.m(-2)) are established independent risk factors in the development of diabetes; we prospectively examined their relative contributions and joint relationship with ...
Electrocardiography-defined silent CHD and risk of cardiovascular events among diabetic patients in a Middle Eastern population.

Anthropometric predictors of incident type 2 diabetes mellitus in Iranian women.
Studies have shown a strong association between excess weight and risk of incident diabetes in Iranian women. Therefore, we investigated anthropometric indices in the prediction of diabetes in Iranian women.
Lipid measures for prediction of incident cardiovascular disease in diabetic and non-diabetic adults: results of the 8.6 years follow-up of a population based cohort study.
Diabetes is a strong risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD).The relative role of various lipid measures in determining CVD risk in diabetic patients is still a subject of debate. We aimed to compare performance of ...
