Louisiana State University Hospital- Based Longitudinal Study (LSUHLS) Gang Hu, MD, MPH, PhD, FAHA Pennington Biomedical Research Center
Louisiana State University Health Care Services Division (LSUHCSD) operates 7 public hospitals and affiliated clinics in different areas in Louisiana which provide quality medical care to residents of Louisiana, regardless of their income or insurance coverage. Overall, LSUHCSD facilities have served about 1.6 million unique patients (35% of the Louisiana population) since 1990, and approximately 300,000 patients annually. About 46% of LSUHCSD patients qualify for free care, about 10% of patients are self-pay, about 20% of patients are covered by Medicaid, about 14% of patients have Medicare, and about 10% of patients are covered by commercial insurance.
The LSU Health Care Services Division, the division responsible for the management of the LSUHCSD clinical facilities, has access to the administrative data, the anthropometric data, the laboratory data, the treatment data, and the clinical diagnosis data of these facilities. All these data are available in electronic form since 1990 for both inpatients and outpatients (the LSUHCSD Disease Management Evaluation Database [DMED]). Using L-DMED, we have established the Louisiana State University Hospital-based Longitudinal Study (LSUHLS) in collaboration LSUHCSD, especially Dr. Horswell and his team.

Kidney function, treatments and risk of CVD among diabetic patients – LSUHLS - Intramural Project 1 The aims of this project are: 1) To determine if there are racial differences in the associations of albuminuria and GFR with the risks of incident CHD, stroke, CVD, and heart failure between white and African American patients with T2D; 2) To determine if different cardiovascular drugs use can reduce the risk and slow the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and further decrease the risks of incident CHD, stroke, CVD, and heart failure among patients with T2D.
LSU ICON Core Services utilized: Medical Information Core – Ron Horswell’s group Design & Analysis Core – Gang Hu’s group Medical Consultants Core – Shannon McNabb/ LSU physicians Project PI and co-investigators: Principal Investigator: Gang Hu, MD, PhD Co-Investigators: Ronald Horswell, Yujie Wang, Wenhui Zhao, Wei Li, Donna Ryan, Peter T. Katzmarzyk Timeline for completion: Year 1: a) update the database; b) analyze the kidney function markers and the risks of CHD, stroke and heart failure; Year 2: a) update the database; b) analyze the treatments to improve kidney function and further decrease later CVD risk.
Racial disparities in the association of gestational diabetes mellitus and risk of CVD - Intramural Project 2 The aims of this project are: 1) To address whether women with prior GDM have increased risks of incident CHD and stroke during follow-up, and whether increased risks of CHD and stroke are indirectly associated with prior GDM-induced increased risks of T2D, HBP, dyslipidemia, and metabolic syndrome during follow-up or directly associated with prior GDM independent of major CHD risk factors; 2) To examine whether women with prior GDM have increased risks of incident T2D, and hypertension during follow-up; 3) To assess whether the association between prior GDM and the risks of CHD, stroke, T2D, and hypertension is different between African American women and white American women.

Future plans and suggestions Assess the association between using different glucose- lowering drugs (oral hypoglycemic agents, Insulin glargine, and other human insulin) among DM patients with the risks of a) CHD, stroke, CVD and heart failure; b) different types of cancers. Assess the association of different treatment goals with the risks of CVD and heart failure among DM patients a) HbA1C <7% b) Blood pressure <130/80 mm Hg c) LDL <100 mg/dl d) Smoking cessation, etc.
Suggestions LSUHLS links to external data sources - LA Tumor Registry - LA/National Death register Validity of several diseases diagnoses in LSU hospitals - Myocardial infarction- Stroke - Heart failure- Dementia - Kidney disease- Parkinson
