Research Shows Type 2s Often Have Increased Triglyceride Levels and Decreased Amounts of

Mar 1, 1995

Research recently conducted at the Institute of Biochemistry in Glasgow, Scotland studied the blood lipid abnormalities associated with non insulin-dependent diabetes.

The researchers confirmed what many doctors had known for years when they found that increased triglyceride levels and decreased high density lipoprotein ("good" cholesterol) levels are often found in people with type 2 diabetes. These conditions can lead to an increased risk of coronary heart disease.

Like many other complications of diabetes, the researchers found that good glycemic control and dietary habits greatly decrease the risk of developing this condition. If necessary, treatment with fibrates may help correct or partially reverse the increase. The results of the study were published in Schweizerische Medizinische Wochenschrifp Nov., 1994.
