BACKGROUND Alterations in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) subfractions, especially in the HDL2b subfraction, have been reported in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). However, new methods for convenient and reliable quantitation of HDL2b are yet to be developed. METHODS Thirty-eight patients with T2DM were enrolled and age-, sex- and body mass index (BMI… CONTINUE READING
