The aim of this study was to evaluate the alterations of the lipoprotein composition and their relation with the insulin-resistance and/or hyperinsulinemia in non diabetic obese patients. Twenty-two no obese(13 women and 9 men) and 30 obese patients (BMI > 30) were studied, who were divided into two groups according to the total lipid levels.
