OBJECTIVE To evaluate the atherogenicity of lipids in coronary patients with normal fasting glucose (NFG), impaired fasting glucose (IFG), and type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Serum lipid values, the presence of angiographic coronary artery disease (CAD) at baseline, and the incidence of vascular events over 2.3 years were recorded in 750 consecutive patients undergoing coronary angiography. RESULTS Triglycerides significantly (P < 0.001) increased and HDL cholesterol (P < 0.001… CONTINUE READING
