When sleep matters for the promotion of heart health, multidisciplinary research is essential. The present dataset is fetched from the National Health And Nutrition Survey (NHANES), with the main consumption of carbohydrates, bedtime and waking hours, and High sensitivity C- Reactive Protein (HSCRP) translating cardiovascular risk. As the outcome variable, HSCRP records from 5,665 participants are available in this dataset for analysis purpose.


These data was used to find out the relationship between Blood pressure, Hypertension Occurence and Dietary Calcum intake in Rural and Urban located populations.

Effects of plants on glucose metabolism have been highlighted and are of particular interest in Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM). Zingiber Officinale (ZO) for instance, is a plant widely used as a spice, known for its hypoglycaemic and hypolipidaemic virtues. However, few studies were conducted in humans, and none have used reference methods for assessing glucose metabolism. The study aims to evaluate the effect of ginger extracts supplementation on diabetes mellitus patients metabolic profile.






Recent researches suggest assessing more ethnic disparities in hypertension (HTN). On the other hand, studies reveal impressive mortality rates due to cardiovascular diseases for some breeds compared to others.
