Oxidative modification of low-density lipoproteins has been implicated in impaired lipid metabolism and its deposition in the arterial wall, and atherosclerosis. This study was carried out to determine the relationship between the in vitro oxidizability of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and the cholesterol,(More)
Abnormalities in the lipid composition of erythrocytes can alter blood rheology and viscosity. These alterations have been implicated in the pathogenesis of microvascular disease in diabetic patients. The present study was undertaken to examine whether or not long-term glycemic control or duration of diabetes has any role in the altered membrane cholesterol(More)
Among many factors, elevated lipids and lipid peroxide levels in blood are major risk factors in the development of cardiovascular disease in diabetic patients.
