High levels of very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) triglycerides (TGs) and low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol have been found to be associated with insulin resistance. However, direct evidence that patients with isolated low HDL cholesterol are insulin resistant is still lacking. Therefore, we investigated the degree of insulin resistance and intracellular metabolism of glucose by the euglycemic glucose clamp technique and indirect calorimetry in three groups of subjects… CONTINUE READING
