This study focused on low-income rural and nomadic minority people residing in China's far west and investigated their relationship between inflammatory markers (IL-6, hsCRP, FFA, and adiponectin) and MS and ethnic differences. And it found that improving behavioral lifestyle by education or using drugs to control inflammation may prevent MS. These(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) in Kazakh population, using the NCEP-ATPIII, CDS, IDF MS standards. METHODS Questionnaire-based survey, physical examination and blood testing were conducted according to cluster random samplings in Kazakh residents in Xinjiang. 2745 samples were collected and diagnosed by NCEP-ATPIII, CDS,(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the screening ability of various anthropometric and atherogenic indices for Metabolic syndrome (MetS) using three common criteria and to evaluate the validity of suitable parameters in combination for the screening of MetS among a Kazakh population in Xinjiang. METHODS A total of 3752 individuals were selected using the stratified(More)
Most previous studies on metabolic syndrome (MetS) examined urban and high income settings. We thus investigated the prevalence of MetS among a multi-ethnic population living in a low income rural area and explored the use of visceral adiposity and anthropometric indicators to identify men and women with MetS. We recruited 10,029 individuals of nomadic(More)
This study investigated the prevalence and distribution of dyslipidemia in adults of Uygur, Kazak, and Han ethnicity in Xinjiang, China. A questionnaire including general data, physical examination (blood pressure, body height, and body weight) and blood lipid [total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the association between three FTO polymorphisms (rs9939609, rs8057044, and rs1421085) and metabolic syndrome (MS)-related outcomes in the low-income, rural, nomadic minority Khazakh population in far western China. A total of 489 subjects (245 MS patients, 244 controls) were included in the study and DNA samples were(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between the polymorphisms and haplotypes in the CETP gene and dyslipidemia among Xinjiang Kazak and Uygur residents. METHODS A population status survey was performed from 2010 to 2011 in Kashgar Xinjiang Uygur and Kazak residents, stratified cluster sampling method was used to select Uygur, Kazak residents with(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate whether free fatty acid (FFA) levels in hypertensive patients result from increased blood pressure or the accompanying condition of insulin resistance (IR). Furthermore, we aimed to study the role of IR in the onset and development of hypertension and then provide a basis for the prevention and treatment of hypertension and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of lipoprotein lipase gene Hind III and S447X polymorphisms with metabolic syndrome among Kazakh and Han ethnicities in Xinjiang. METHODS PCR-RFLP was used to detect 802 subjects' lipoprotein lipase Hind III and S447X genotypes (including 201 controls and 200 metabolic syndrome patients in Kazakh and Han(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the potential association between apolipoprotein A1 (APOA1) gene rs670, rs5069, and rs2070665 polymorphisms and dyslipidemia in the Kazakh population of Xinjiang, China. Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS) was used to identify APOA1 (rs670, rs5069, and(More)
