From China: Triglyceride-Glucose Index Independently Linked to All-Cause Mortality

The triglyceride-glucose (TyG) index is independently associated with all-cause mortality among patients with heart failure and chronic kidney disease (CKD), according to a study published online June 12 in ESC Heart Failure.

Yang Chen, from the Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, and colleagues examined the association of the TyG index with overall mortality in individuals concurrently experiencing heart failure and CKD. Individuals underwent quartile stratification based on the TyG index using the Medical Information Mart for Intensive Care IV (Version 2.2) repository. Data were included for a cohort of 1,537 heart failure and CKD patients.
