BACKGROUND Accumulating evidence suggests a cross-sectional association between oxidative stress and type 2 diabetes (T2D). Systemic oxidative stress, as measured by oxidized LDL (oxLDL), has been correlated with visceral fat. We examined the relationship between oxLDL, and T2D- and obesity-related traits in a bi-racial sample of 2985 subjects at baseline and after 7 years of follow-up. METHODS We examined six T2D-related traits (T2D status, HbA(1c), fasting glucose, insulin, adiponectin and… CONTINUE READING
