Clustering of risk factors for coronary heart disease and diabetes is well established, particularly in relation to insulin resistance. To determine whether evaluation of risk factor clustering will contribute to risk assessment, it is first necessary to discriminate co-association between risk...
Both postprandial hyperglycemia and hypertriglyceridemia have been identified as risk markers for cardiovascular disease, but parameters associated with these postprandial responses are largely unknown. The objective was to assess whether usually measured clinical and biochemical parameters can...
The metabolic syndrome (MS) is defined by the clustering of a number of cardiovascular risk factors. The aims of the present study were to estimate the prevalence of MS in Madrid (Spain) by 2 definitions and to investigate its relationship with several sociodemographic factors and C-reactive...
Alcohol may have a beneficial effect on coronary heart disease (CHD) that could be mediated by elevation of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLC). Data on alcohol consumption and blood lipids in coronary patients are scarce. We studied whether total ethanol intake and consumption of...
Visceral obesity and insulin resistance are regarded as risk factors for atherosclerosis. Epidemiologic studies have demonstrated long-term anti-atherosclerotic effects with administration of α -glucosidase inhibitors. α -Glucosidase inhibitors also have been reported to enhance glucagon-like...
Studies have shown that the long chain fatty acid composition of a dietary fat influences whether it will be partitioned for either energy or storage. The objective of this study was to compare the effects of 3 oils differing in fatty acid composition on postprandial energy expenditure and...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible association between serum fatty acid s composition and endothelial dysfunction in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. A cross-sectional study was conducted with 125 normo- or microalbuminuric type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with serum...
Intestinal absorption of plant sterols and stanols is much lower as compared with that of cholesterol; and therefore, serum concentrations are low. Circulating plant sterols and stanols are incorporated into tissues. However, hardly any data are available about tissue distributions of individual...
Increased oxidative stress contributes to the development and progression of both types of diabetes mellitus (DM) and its complications. In the Cohen diabetic (CD) rats, a known genetic model of nutritionally induced type 2 DM, a high-sucrose, low-copper diet (HSD) induces within 4 weeks DM in...
