A systematic evaluation of the insulin resistance syndrome as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease mortality and derivation of a clinical index.


Insulin resistance-related risk factor clustering (the insulin resistance syndrome or IRS) may be a cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factor, but a convincing demonstration of this requires a rigorously derived reference measure and a systematic evaluation of measures and indices that derive from that measure. Using established IRS characteristics, factor… (More)
