Levels of cardiovascular disease risk factors in Singapore following a national intervention programme.
Cutter J, Tan BY, Chew SK. Cutter J, et al. Bull World Health Organ. 2001;79(10):908-15. Epub 2001 Nov 1. Bull World Health Organ. 2001. PMID: 11693972 Free PMC article.
METHODS: The evaluation was carried out in 1998 by the Singapore National Health Survey (NHS). The reference population was 2.2 million multiracial Singapore residents, 18-69 years of age. A population-based survey sample (n = 4723) was selected by disproportionate …

The relationship between insulin resistance and cardiovascular risk factors in overweight/obese non-diabetic Asian adults: the 1992 Singapore National Health Survey.
Lim SC, Tan BY, Chew SK, Tan CE. Lim SC, et al. Int J Obes Relat Metab Disord. 2002 Nov;26(11):1511-6. doi: 10.1038/sj.ijo.0802140. Int J Obes Relat Metab Disord. 2002. PMID: 12439654
We explore this relationship by comparing the cardiovascular risk factors among insulin-sensitive and insulin-resistant overweight/obese non-diabetic Asian adults in the 1992 National Health Survey of Singapore. ...This could not be fully explained by differences in …

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of body mass index (BMI) and body fat distribution as measured by waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) on the cardiovascular risk factor profile of the three major ethnic groups in Singapore (Chinese, Malay and Indian people) and to determine if WH …

Screening for diabetes mellitus--a two-step approach in individuals with impaired fasting glucose improves detection of those at risk of complications.
Tai ES, Lim SC, Tan BY, Chew SK, Heng D, Tan CE. Tai ES, et al. Diabet Med. 2000 Nov;17(11):771-5. doi: 10.1046/j.1464-5491.2000.00382.x. Diabet Med. 2000. PMID: 11131101
The optimal cut-off of FPG for the detection of individuals with 2hPG > or = 11.1 mmol/l was determined by receiver-operating characteristics analysis. RESULTS: The prevalence of diabetes diagnosed by FPG alone was 7.3% compared to 8.4% diagnosed by 2hPG. …

Cardiovascular risk profile in individuals with borderline glycemia: the effect of the 1997 American Diabetes Association diagnostic criteria and the 1998 World Health Organization Provisional Report.
Lim SC, Tai ES, Tan BY, Chew SK, Tan CE. Lim SC, et al. Diabetes Care. 2000 Mar;23(3):278-82. doi: 10.2337/diacare.23.3.278. Diabetes Care. 2000. PMID: 10868851

The following cardiovascular risk factors were higher in subjects with both IFG and IGT compared with those with either IFG or IGT alone: systolic blood pressure (131 +/- 20 vs. 125 +/- 21 and 125 +/- 19 mmHg, respectively; P < 0.05 and P < 0.001, respectively); diastolic b

Isolated low HDL cholesterol: an insulin-resistant state only in the presence of fasting hypertriglyceridemia.
Tai ES, Emmanuel SC, Chew SK, Tan BY, Tan CE. Tai ES, et al. Diabetes. 1999 May;48(5):1088-92. doi: 10.2337/diabetes.48.5.1088. Diabetes. 1999. PMID: 10331414
A total of 3,568 individuals were selected by stratified random sampling. Subjects with low HDL cholesterol (<0.9 mmol/l) and "ideal" total cholesterol (<5.2 mmol/l) were identified. ...Those with fasting triglyceride (TG) >1.7 mmol/l (low HDL/high TG) displayed f …
