Abstract—Increased levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) have been discussed as a part of the insulin resistance syndrome. However, it is not clear whether the relationship between PAI-1 and insulin resistance is independent of or mediated by increased triglycerides levels. The aim of this study was to investigate whether PAI-1 activity is associated with insulin sensitivity independently of serum triglycerides (sTG) and of other potential confounders. Seventy-year-old men (n=871… CONTINUE READING
