Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with increased plasma triglyceride (TG) concentrations, but African Americans (AA) have lower plasma TG than Caucasians (CC). We evaluated the hypothesis that obese AA women have lower plasma TG than obese CC women do because of differences in lipid kinetics. Eleven AA and 11 CC obese women with T2DM, matched on body mass index (BMI) (AA = 37 ± 1, CC = 37 ± 1 kg/m(2)), age, duration of diabetes, percentage body fat, and insulin sensitivity (S(I… CONTINUE READING
