Although cross-sectional studies have associated the Pro12Ala polymorphism of PPARG with type 2 diabetes, prospective studies offer more opportunities to investigate genetic variants. Associations between PPARG polymorphisms with insulin resistance parameters and with the 6-year incidence of impaired fasting glucose or type 2 diabetes were tested in 3,914(More)
BACKGROUND Adiponectin levels are high in cases of diabetic nephropathy, but it remains unclear whether these high levels are a cause or a consequence of the disease. We investigated the possible association of polymorphisms in the adiponectin gene and baseline adiponectin levels with the incidence of renal events in subjects with type 2 diabetes. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE In previous cross-sectional analyses of the Data from an Epidemiological Study on the Insulin Resistance Syndrome (DESIR) cohort, we have found inverse associations between dairy product consumption and metabolic syndrome (MetS) traits. We have now analyzed in a prospective way the influence of dairy product and calcium consumption at inclusion on(More)
OBJECTIVE In the French Data from the Epidemiological Study on the Insulin Resistance Syndrome (DESIR) cohort, cross-sectional analyses have shown that a higher consumption of dairy products and calcium are associated with a lower prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (MetS). We assess the influence of dairy products on 9-year incident MetS and on impaired(More)
OBJECTIVE Type 2 diabetic patients have a high risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and sudden death. This cardiovascular risk can be partly attributed to low levels of HDL cholesterol. The B2 allele of the CETP TaqIB polymorphism has been repeatedly reported to be associated with high HDL cholesterol levels in both healthy and type 2 diabetic subjects, but(More)
