BACKGROUND Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). We have shown previously that endothelial function, measured by post-ischaemic flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) of the brachial artery, is impaired in NS. In this study our aim was to assess the potential roles of insulin resistance, plasma non-esterified fatty acids (NEFAs) and inflammation in endothelial dysfunction in NS patients. METHODS FMD was compared between NS patients (n=19) and… CONTINUE READING
