Increased cardiovascular mortality due to premature atherosclerosis is a clinical feature in the adult-onset GH deficiency (AGHD) syndrome. Inflammation is a key feature in atherogenesis and may be triggered by postprandial lipoprotein remnants. We hypothesized that increased postprandial lipoprotein remnant levels in AGHD may be associated with an inflammatory response. In this case-control study, 10 AGHD patients [6 males and 4 females; age, 48 +/- 9 yr; body mass index (BMI), 26.9 +/- 2.6 kg… CONTINUE READING
