Various cardiovascular risk factors and disease states similar to those present in type 2 diabetic patients also seem to be present in non-diabetic individuals. This cluster of risk factors has been called syndrome X, also known as metabolic cardiovascular syndrome or insulin resistance syndrome. Vascular wall components changes, including endothelial dysfunction and vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) migration and proliferation, could be involved in the cardiovascular alterations associated… CONTINUE READING
