Strategy for literature search and exclusion criteria. The search strategy for retrieving published articles through the PubMed database is depicted. Thereby, the Pubmed filters “species: human and language: English” were used. The following keyword search terms were included for PubMed search: “atherosclerosis”, “coronary artery disease”, “acute coronary syndrome”, “myocardial infarction”, “heart failure”(which describes cardiovascular conditions), “obesity”, “overweight”, “T2 M”, “Type 2 diabetes”, “insulin resistance”, “hypertension”, “hyperlipidemia”, “dyslipidemia”, “METS” and “Metabolic syndrome” (which describes metabolic conditions) in conjunction to “microRNA” . The literature search yielded 1021 potentially relevant articles. Articles were excluded based on title screening using the exclusion criteria in the left box. The resulting 398 papers were then screened by reading abstract and applying exclusion criteria (right box). The remaining 105 studies were analyzed and data were extracted from each paper into an excel sheet. Diseases were grouped into cardiovascular and metabolic diseases
