BACKGROUND The present study tested the hypothesis that simple variables, such as waist circumference and fasting plasma triglyceride (TG) concentrations, could be used as screening tools for the identification of men characterized by a metabolic triad of nontraditional risk factors (elevated insulin and apolipoprotein [apo] B and small, dense LDL particles). METHODS AND RESULTS Results of the metabolic study (study 1) conducted on 185 healthy men indicate that a large proportion (>80%) of… CONTINUE READING
