The study was to evaluate the influence of particle size and lipid composition of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) on urinary albumin excretion and oxidative susceptibility of LDL, and to define association between LDL particle size and alpha-tocopherol content in LDL from normotensive and normocholesterolemic patients with type 2 diabetes. Twenty-three patients with type 2 diabetes (13 males, 10 females) were studied, and none of these patients had hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and overt… CONTINUE READING
