  • The prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and atherosclerosis varies among several minority ethnic groups in the United States. Recently, small, dense low density lipoprotein (LDL) particle size has been recognized as a risk factor for CVD. We examined LDL size as a possible explanation for differences in CVD rates in 1571 subjects from the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study (IRAS), a multiethnic study of insulin resistance and cardiovascular risk factors. LDL size (A) was… CONTINUE READING
