Relation between insulin resistance and plasma concentrations of lipid hydroperoxides, carotenoids, and tocopherols.


BACKGROUND It is not known whether total circulating lipid hydroperoxides are increased in insulin-resistant individuals and whether this correlates with depletion of liposoluble antioxidant vitamins that are consumed during lipid peroxidation. OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to define the relation between resistance to insulin-mediated glucose… (More)
