Hypercholesterolemia is an important atherogenic risk factor in type II diabetes, and although coronary artery disease (CAD) is frequent in these patients, it is not known whether cholesterol and lipoprotein metabolism differ in patients with (CAD+) and without CAD (CAD-). Our aim was to study cholesterol metabolism and lipoprotein kinetics in mildly hypercholesterolemic type II diabetic men with and without CAD under similar dietary conditions. Despite similar serum and lipoprotein cholesterol… CONTINUE READING
