    Postprandial Triglyceride-rich Lipoproteins From Type-2 Diabetics
    Author(s): Ali Adewusi*

    The role of nonfasting triglycerides, carried in VLDL and chylomicrons, as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease and death, has recently been convincingly demonstrated by evidence from prospective epidemiological large-scale studies. The accumulation of apoB-48-containing triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRLs) and the overproduction of large VLDL1 by the liver both occur prior to overt hyperglycemia, emphasizing the role of insulin resistance as an early pathogenic defect. The liver, adipose tissue, muscle, intestine and multiple insulin action site all exhibit insulin resistance. Together, these insulin action disruptions cause an excess of atherogenic VLDL and chylomicron remnant particles to be produced. Therefore, excessive cholesterol influx exposes the vascular wall endothelium, leading to endothelial dysfunction, oxidative stress, and prothrombotic condition over.. View More»
