CONTEXT Patients with diabetes are at a higher risk of pneumonia and pneumonia mortality. Sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2is), the latest class of glucose-lowering agents, were shown to reduce the risk of pneumonia in clinical trials. However, the real-world effectiveness of SGLT2is on the risk of pneumonia is largely unknown. OBJECTIVE To investigate the associations between SGLT2is use and the risk of pneumonia and pneumonia mortality compared to dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibit...

BACKGROUND Emerging evidence showed that bone metabolism and cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are closely related. We previously observed a potential immediate risk of cardiovascular mortality after hip fracture. However, whether there is an immediate risk of cardiovascular events after hip fracture is unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk for major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) between patients having experienced falls with and without hip fracture. METHODS This retrospec...

Previous studies have shown that ticagrelor reduced risk of pneumonia in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) compared to clopidogrel, however, its effect in patients with non-ACS cardiovascular diseases remains uncertain. The aim was to investigate the effect of ticagrelor on pneumonia and pneumonia-specific death compared to clopidogrel in non-ACS patients in Hong Kong. This was a population-based cohort study. We included consecutive patients using ticagrelor or clopidogrel admitted fo...

INTRODUCTION The present study examined the gender-specific prognostic value of blood pressure (BP) and its variability in the prediction of dementia risk and developed a score system for risk stratification. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective, observational population-based cohort study of patients admitted to government-funded family medicine clinics in Hong Kong between January 1, 2000 and March 31, 2002 with at least 3 blood pressure measurements. Gender-specific risk scores for ...

We read the recent articles published in Gut on the relationship between proton pump inhibitor (PPI) use and outcomes in COVID-19 with great interest.1 2 In the meta-analysis, the authors found that current or regular PPI users were more likely to have severe outcomes of COVID-19 than non-users, but no significant association was observed for previous PPI use.2 The reason may be reduced secretion of gastric acid that can neutralise the SARS-CoV-2. By contrast, the use of famotidine, another medi...

Abstract null null Aims null To compare cardio-renal outcomes and incurred direct medical costs of patients initiating sodium glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) versus glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RA). null null null Methods null A population-based cohort of patients with type 2 diabetes was identified from Hong Kong Hospital Authority. Patients who were free from cardiovascular and end-stage renal diseases at baseline, and newly treated with SGLT2i (n = 2,541) or GLP...

Unintentional injuries are major causes of mortality and morbidity. Although generally perceived as accidents, it is possible to identify those at higher risk and implement appropriate prevention measures. This study aims to investigate the common causes of unintentional injuries and their associated risk factors among a large representative sample. Data of 12,022 individuals who completed the Hong Kong Population Health Survey 2014/15 were extracted. The primary outcome was the prevalence of ha...
