In diabetes, altered lipoprotein metabolism is one of the factors which accelerates the process of atherogenesis. In NIDDM, plasma triglyceride levels are increased and HDL levels are, independently, decreased. In order to increase HDL levels, good metabolic control and prolonged, near perfect, control of lipoprotein metabolism are required. In NIDDM, there is a direct relationship between lipoprotein lipase activity and HDL levels. Optimal insulin therapy gives improved diabetic control, and in the long term will improve the lipoprotein profile in these diabetics.

Abstract

In diabetes, altered lipoprotein metabolism is one of the factors which accelerates the process of atherogenesis. In NIDDM, plasma triglyceride levels are increased and HDL levels are, independently, decreased. In order to increase HDL levels, good metabolic control and prolonged, near perfect, control of lipoprotein metabolism are required. In NIDDM, there is a direct relationship between lipoprotein lipase activity and HDL levels. Optimal insulin therapy gives improved diabetic control, and in the long term will improve the lipoprotein profile in these diabetics. Factors affecting lipid metabolism are discussed, and the importance of improving the lipoprotein profile in diabetics is emphasized
