Large waistline, high triglyceride levels up coronary heart disease riskJuly 20th, 2010 - 3:16 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, July 20 (ANI): People with a larger waistline and high triglyceride levels are at increased risk of coronary heart disease, according to a new research.
“Among individuals classified at low coronary heart disease risk based on the absence of traditional risk factors, the presence of the hyper-triglyceridemic waist is predictive of a substantially increased risk of coronary heart disease,” said Drs. Benoit Arsenault and Jean-Pierre Després, Laval University, Quebec City.
A point to be noted is that men and women with increased waist circumference (even without higher triglyceride levels) and increased triglyceride levels (even without higher waist circumference) show high risk of CAD.
However, both factors combined showed the highest risk of CAD.
The study is published in Canadian Medical Association Journal. (ANI)
