While traditional cardiovascular abnormalities are assumed to mediate this risk, recently also, the importance of noncardiovascular factors, such as systemic inflammation and malnutrition has been shown. While both FO and inflammation are independent risk factors for mortality, recent...

Chronic inflammation leads to malnutrition and consequently to vascular endothelial dysfunction and vascular calcification, which is referred to as malnutrition-inflammation-atherosclerosis (MIA) syndrome and acts as a major risk factor for CVD. Anemia also plays a crucial role in CVD...
