New insights into lipid metabolism in non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus

Ann Med. 1996 Aug;28(4):335-40. doi: 10.3109/07853899608999090.

Abstract

Perturbations of lipid metabolism are common in diabetes. Therefore, an understanding of the underlying mechanism of lipid metabolism and in particular the role of insulin is a critical issue. The review aims to provide evidence that hypertriglyceridaemia is central to many features of diabetic dyslipidaemia.
