We investigated whether insulin resistance is associated with impaired cardiac fatty acid metabolism in maintenance hemodialysis patients without coronary artery disease. We studied 55 nondiabetic (63+/-11 years old) and 51 diabetic (61+/-10 years old) hemodialysis patients with normal coronary arteries, using single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with an iodinated fatty acid analogue, iodine-123-beta-methyl iodophenyl-pentadecanoic acid ((123)I-BMIPP), to evaluate cardiac fatty… CONTINUE READING
