In a study done by chen xiang, the CIMT in patients with postprandial hypertriglyceridemia was significantly greater than that in patients with normal PPTG levels (0.
So in their study, it was observed that CIMT was increased in patients with postprandial hypertriglyceridemia despite normal FTG levels, and the PPTG levels showed the strongest influence on CIMT.
Hence, evaluating not only FTG level but also PPTG level during clinical assessment of patients with type 2 diabetes is important.
001) and those with CAD groups had significantly higher PPTG increase than controls (F=6.
Levels of fasting and PPTG are highly variable depending in part on the content of the last meal and on the duration from the last meal taken.
Most of the data supporting the correlation of elevated PPTG levels and CAD come from cohort studies or subgroup analysis of large -scale trials (9-16).
Case-control studies that evaluated the relationship between PPTG levels and CAD used different fat loading protocols in different patient groups and different results were found (17-21).
The difference between the PPTG levels at the 5th hour was significant in one of these studies (19), however in the other small scale study all PPTG levels were higher in the CAD group (21).
The main limitation of this study is the plasma remnant protein levels which are important in the effect of PPTG in atherosclerosis were not measured.
