Apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5) -1131C allele is associated with higher triglyceride, an independent cardiovascular risk factor and a commonly recognized lipid abnormality in diabetes mellitus (DM). We investigated the association of APOA5 -1131T>C or S19W with DM. Study subjects were all women and categorized into metabolically healthy controls (n = 2033) and DM(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the relationship between fatty acid desaturase (FADS) gene polymorphisms and insulin resistance (IR) in association with serum phospholipid polyunsaturated fatty acid (FA) composition in healthy Korean men. METHODS Healthy men (n = 576, 30 ~ 79 years old) were genotyped for rs174537 near FADS1 (FEN1-10154G>T), FADS2(More)
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is known to inversely correlate with antioxidant status. Recently, it has been reported that MetS is associated with arterial stiffness, a composite risk factor for early atherosclerosis. In addition, our recent study for healthy women showed an inverse relationship between arterial stiffness and circulating lycopene. Therefore,(More)
We hypothesized that triglyceride-raising apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5)-1131T > C may contribute to the increased risk of obesity associated with dietary intake in Korean premenopausal women whose minor allele frequency is higher than that in Western people. Genetically unrelated Korean premenopausal women (approximately 20-59 years, n = 1128) were genotyped(More)
This study aimed to investigate the association of Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) with the risk of diabetes in Koreans. Korean men (n = 790, 40-79 years) who had been never diagnosed for diabetes before participating were enrolled. Subjects were categorized into normal fasting glucose (NFG, n = 519), impaired fasting glucose (IFG, n = 188) and newly-onset diabetes(More)
AIMS To investigate the association of plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) with arterial stiffness, measured as brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV), LDL atherogenicity, and inflammation profile in healthy men. METHODS AND RESULTS In this cross-sectional study, 612 healthy men aged 31-79 years were classified into quartiles according to plasma tHcy(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the effects of nattokinase supplementation on blood pressure in subjects with pre-hypertension or stage 1 hypertension. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 86 participants ranging from 20 to 80 years of age with an initial untreated systolic blood pressure (SBP) of 130 to 159 mmHg received(More)
