The metabolic syndrome encapsulates visceral obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidaemia. Dyslipidaemia is a cardinal feature of the metabolic syndrome that accelerates the risk of cardiovascular disease. It is usually characterized by high plasma concentrations of triacylglycerol (triglyceride)-rich and apoB (apolipoprotein B)-containing lipoproteins, with depressed concentrations of HDL (high-density lipoprotein). However, lipoprotein metabolism is complex and… CONTINUE READING
