The evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD) concerning the metabolic status and body mass index (BMI) is poorly studied. This study was designed to observe the relationship between insulin resistance (IR) and the severity of CAD on the basis of the metabolic and phenotypic status in stable-angina patients. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 532 patients with stable angina and coronary angiogram was done to diagnose the CAD for all. Determination of metabolic obesity was done using the…

Correlation between Severity of Coronary Artery Disease and Insulin Resistance in Diabetic Patients

Fasting insulin level is a simple test for insulin resistance and significantly correlated with severe CAD so it may have a value as a predictor of severity of CAD and risk stratification of diabetic patients.

Correlation of Severity of Coronary Artery Disease with Insulin Resistance

Homeostasis model assessment-IR (HOMA-IR) was correlated with severity of CAD, which was measured by modified Gensini Score, and indicates that the results of this study indicate that it might able to predict the severity of the CAD by measure of IR.

Insulin resistance as predictor of the angiographic severity and extent of coronary artery disease

Patients with more severe degree ofIR have a more severe, extensive, and distal type of CAD than patients with lower degree of IR, and the association between IR and severity and extent of CAD is examined.

Diabetes, but not the metabolic syndrome, predicts the severity and extent of coronary artery disease in women.

Diabetes, fasting plasma glucose and hypertension, but not the metabolic syndrome, were associated with severity of coronary angiographic findings in these women.

Differential associations of angiographic extent and severity of coronary artery disease with asymmetric dimethylarginine but not insulin resistance in non-diabetic men with stable angina: a cross-sectional study

ADMA is associated with diffuse but not focal coronary atherosclerosis in non-diabetic men with stable CAD irrespectively of the degree of IR, and may contribute to the well-recognized prognostic effect of ADMA in CAD.

Prevalence of a metabolic syndrome phenotype in adolescents: findings from the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-1994.

Perhaps 4% of adolescents and nearly 30% of overweight adolescents in the United States meet these criteria for a metabolic syndrome, a constellation of metabolic derangements associated with obesity, which may have significant implications for both public health and clinical interventions directed at this high-risk group of mostly overweight young people.

Role of Insulin Resistance in Human Disease

The possibility is raised that resistance to insulin-stimulated glucose uptake and hyperinsulinemia are involved in the etiology and clinical course of three major related diseases— NIDDM, hypertension, and CAD.

Use and abuse of HOMA modeling.

The HOMA model has become a widely used clinical and epidemiological tool and, when used appropriately, it can yield valuable data, however, as with all models, the primary input data needs to be robust, and the data need to be interpreted carefully.

Body mass index as an indicator of obesity

Working in collaboration with the International Dietary Energy Consultative Group (IDECG), FAO began to examine both appropriate cut-off points of the body mass index (BMI) at the lower end of the spectrum and the functional consequences of low BMI.
