BACKGROUND Dyslipoproteinemia, obesity and insulin resistance are integrative constituents of the metabolic syndrome and are major risk factors for hypertension. The objective of this study was to determine whether hypertension specifically affects the plasma lipidome independently and differently from the effects induced by obesity and insulin resistance.(More)
Patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) manifest significant abnormalities in lipoprotein structure and function. The deleterious impact of oxidative and glycoxidative modifications on HDL-mediated atheroprotective, antiinflammatory, and antioxidative phenomena has been well established. However, the biological effects of modified HDL on adrenal(More)
Lipidomics of human blood plasma is an emerging biomarker discovery approach that compares lipid profiles under pathological and physiologically normal conditions, but how a healthy lipidome varies within the population is poorly understood. By quantifying 281 molecular species from 27 major lipid classes in the plasma of 71 healthy young Caucasians whose(More)
Diabetic dyslipidemia is characterized by increased circulatory very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) levels. Aldosterone, apart from its role in fluid and electrolyte homeostasis, has also been implicated in insulin resistance and myocardial fibrosis. The impact of VLDL as a potential risk factor for aldosterone-mediated cardiovascular injury in diabetes(More)
OBJECTIVE Glucolipotoxicity is a major pathophysiological mechanism in the development of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D). We aimed to detect subtle changes in the circulating lipid profile by shotgun lipidomics analyses and to associate them with four different insulin sensitivity indices. METHODS The cross-sectional study comprised(More)
Hyperglycemia- and oxidative stress-induced modification of circulating lipoproteins is being increasingly recognized as an important pathogenetic factor for diabetic cardiovascular damages. This study was designed to investigate the impact of modified very low-density lipoprotein and high-density lipoprotein on phagocyte adhesion to endothelial cells and(More)
