In non-diabetic subjects, the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol level is increased by alcohol and decreased by smoking. The biallelic B1B2 polymorphism of the cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) gene is a genetic determinant of HDL cholesterol. We evaluated the effect of moderate alcohol consumption, the CETP gene polymorphism and clinical variables on HDL cholesterol and other lipoprotein parameters in insulin-dependent diabetic (IDDM) men. Thirteen moderate alcohol using IDDM… CONTINUE READING
