Insulin resistance-related lipoproteins linked to diabetes risk

January 28, 2015

Lipoprotein-based insulin resistance, very low density lipoprotein concentration and size, triglycerides and their ratio with HDL cholesterol were associated with incident diabetes across a range of ages and ethnicities, according to research published in Diabetes Care.

These relationships demonstrated in participants from the prospective Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis were independent of established risk factors, glucose, insulin or homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), or the use of lipid-lowering medications or hormone therapy.
