AIM The present study aimed to clarify the clinical impact of modified NCEP-ATP III criteria for metabolic syndrome (MS) and Framingham Risk Score (FRS) on carotid atherosclerosis in 615 Japanese adults (319 men and 296 women) including 307 with type 2 diabetes. METHODS Waist circumference was the only component from the original NCEP-ATP III criteria based on Japanese criteria. The intima-medial thickness (IMT) and stiffness parameter beta of the carotid artery were measured by ultrasound… CONTINUE READING
