Serum Triglyceride and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease, Stroke, and Total Mortality in Japanese‐American Men

Serum Triglyceride and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease, Stroke, and Total Mortality in... The role of serum triglyceride as a risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, and total mortality was examined in men of Japanese ancestry who were 45 to 78 years old. During the first 10 years following a baseline nonfasting triglyceride determination, there were 490 incidence cases of CHD in 7615 men at risk. Average annual incidence rates were 2.1 times higher in men with nonfasting values above the 75th percentile (279 mg/dl) than in those under the 25th percentile (129 mg/dl, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Arteriosclerosis Wolters Kluwer Health

Abstract

The role of serum triglyceride as a risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, and total mortality was examined in men of Japanese ancestry who were 45 to 78 years old. During the first 10 years following a baseline nonfasting triglyceride determination, there were 490 incidence cases of CHD in 7615 men at risk. Average annual incidence rates were 2.1 times higher in men with nonfasting values above the 75th percentile (279 mg/dl) than in those under the 25th percentile (129 mg/dl,
