Effect of abdominal obesity on insulin resistance and the components of the metabolic syndrome: Evidence supporting obesity as the central feature
(F D-Communications Inc., 2003)
Background: Metabolic syndrome includes abdominal obesity diabetes type 2 hypertension dyslipidemia derangements of fibrinolysis and atherosclerosis. Since abdominal obesity is one of the major components of the insulin ...
Apolipoprotein B gene variants are involved in the determination of blood glucose and lipid levels in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus
We have examined the frequency of the EcoRI XbaI and MspI RFLPs of the apolipoprotein B (apo 13) gene in I 10 type 2 diabetic patients and 9 1 healthy control subjects in order to ascertain whether variation in this gene ...
Genetic variations of the apolipoprotein B gene in Turkish patients with coronary artery disease
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2005)
Background: The results of studies that clarify the association of genetic markers at the apolipoprotein B (apo B) gene (EcoRI and XbaI polymorphisms) with coronary artery disease (CAD) are not consistent and suggest that ...
DNA polymorphism of Pvu II site in the lipoprotein lipase gene in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus
We studied the effect of variation at the lipoprotein lipase (LPL) gene locus on the susceptibility of individuals with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) in a population of 110 NIDDM patients and 91 controls. ...
The interrelationship between insulin secretion and action in Type 2 diabetes mellitus with different degrees of obesity: Evidence supporting central obesity
(Editrice Kurtis S R L, 2003)
This paper investigates the relative role of the impairment of insulin secretion and action in the pathogenesis of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The parameters indicating insulin secretion and action were calculated ...
