The hypertriglyceridemic waist phenotype and metabolic syndrome by differing criteria in type 2 diabetic patients and their relation to lipids and blood glucose control.


BACKGROUND Metabolic syndrome (MetS) describes clustering of obesity, dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia and hypertension and increases risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The 'hypertriglyceridemic waist' phenotype (HTGW) represents a simple approach to identifying individuals with increased risk. The aim of the study was to determine the… (More)
