In order to determine whether plasma homocysteine concentrations vary with body-mass index in patients with type II diabetes, we measured plasma homocysteine in lean, normal weight, and overweight subjects living in India. Plasma homocysteine concentrations were significantly lower in the lean persons with diabetes… CONTINUE READING
