Aims/hypothesis. Information on the association of hyperinsulinaemia with coronary heart disease (CHD) in patients with Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes is limited and controversial. Therefore, we carried out a prospective study to examine the predictive value of fasting plasma insulin and “hyperinsulinaemia cluster” with regard to the risk of CHD mortality.¶Methods. At baseline risk factors for CHD were determined in 902 patients aged 45 to 64 years with Type II diabetes not treated by… CONTINUE READING
