BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE With the increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease in Taiwan, the understanding of metabolic syndrome (MetS) becomes more important. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clustering patterns of the risk variables of the MetS with factor analysis (FacAn). METHODS A total of 564 Chinese individuals with normal glucose tolerance (N, n=345), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT, n=164) or diabetes mellitus (DM, n=55) were enrolled. Insulin… CONTINUE READING
