Fats and carbohydrates provide energy to the body. So our genes adapted to survive long periods of drought by consuming fats and carbohydrates slowly to make them last longerNow our bodies get adequate supplies of food, but these genes are still in action as they take a long time to adapt, so our food continues to be metabolised slowly resulting in the dysfunctional biochemical profile that constitutes Syndrome X..*Misra & Vikram ,Nutrition May;20(5):482-91** Talwar & Misra,J Assoc Physicians India 2002;50:1521^Misra et al, J Assoc Physicians India 2004;52:137-42
9 Besides, body composition of Asian Indians makes them more vulnerable 07/09/13Besides, body composition of Asian Indians makes them more vulnerableShorter height*Lower body mass index*Excess body fat in relation to body mass index †Abdominal adiposityHigh waist-to-hip ratio ‡Normal waist circumference*§High intra-abdominal fat*Truncal adiposityThick subscapular skinfold thickness*More abdominal subcutaneous fat*IILess lean body mass*¶Misra in Nutrition 2004 points out that Asian Indians have a high prevalence of insulin resistance syndrome that may underlie their greater than normal tendency to develop diabetes mellitus and early atherosclerosis. Important reasons could be their excess body fat and adverse body fat patterning including abdominal adiposity even when the body mass index is within the currently defined normal limits. Some of these features have been reported at birth and childhood. Whether Asian Indians also have tendency to develop insulin resistance de novo, independent of total or regional adiposity, needs further investigation. Underlying genetic tendency or early-life adverse events may contribute to such a phenotype, but lifestyle factors alone or modulated by inherited factors appear to play an important role because obesity and dyslipidemia become worse with urbanization and migration. Systemic stress may contribute to insulin resistance syndrome in the intra-country and inter-country migrant Asian Indians.High prevalence of excess body fat, adverse body fat patterning, hypertriglyceridemia, and insulin resistance beginning at a young age have been consistently recorded in Asian Indians irrespective of their geographic locations. These data suggest that primary prevention strategies should be initiated early in this ethnic group.* As compared with whites or blacks.† High body fat per unit of body mass index.II As estimated by skinfold thicknessmeasurements or imaging techniques.¶ Particularly in the lower extremities.‡ This may be due to less lean mass atthe hips resulting in a smaller hip circumference.§ Average value of waist circumference usuallydoes not exceed the currently accepted cutoffvalues for abdominal obesity.*Misra, Nutrition May;20(5):482-91

In the United States, 43% of Asian Indian males and 24% of Asian Indian females have levels that exceed 150 mg/dL. Lipoprotein(a) is still considered an emerging risk factor in the US population at large, but appears to be a major risk factor in Asian Indians.5,26-29A high level of Lp(a) is the most prevalent dislipidemia in patients with premature CHD. Lp(a) levels are governed almost exclusively by race, ethnicity, and genetics, unlike other lipids, where the levels are influenced by age, gender, diet, and other environmental factors.30-33Although Lp(a) levels >30 mg/dL are generally considered the threshold at which high risk of premature CHD increases rapidly, levels below 20 mg/dL are considered optimum, particularly in Asian Indians.14,28 Studies of Asian Indians in North America found that 25% to 50% of sampled populations have levels >30 mg/dL.Lp(a) – binds to plasminogen receptors and prevents activation of Plasminogen (which is fibrinolytic on activation to plasmin)Indians living in the US - 54% of men and 68% of women had low HDL levels.

13 Why diabetics are more prone to ADD? 07/09/13Why diabetics are more prone to ADD?↑HSLInsulin resistance in Type 2 diabetes mellitus leads to increased lipolysis in the fat cells in adipose tissue, because the inhibitory effect of insulin on hormone-sensitive lipase is removed, which leads to increased delivery of free fatty acids (FFAs) to the liver.Type II Diabetes is characterized by insulin resistanceIR: Insulin Resistance CE, cholesteryl esters; FFA, free fatty acids; TG, triglycerides.CETP: Cholesterol Ester Transport Protein HN Ginsberg,J Clin Invest. 2000;106:453–458.
14 Why diabetics are more prone to ADD? 07/09/13Why diabetics are more prone to ADD?↑HSLIncreased Delivery of FFA to liver increases VLDL formation (insulin resistance also increase Apo B formation in the Liver). So plasma VLDL (hence TG level) is increased.IR: Insulin Resistance CE, cholesteryl esters; FFA, free fatty acids; TG, triglycerides.CETP: Cholesterol Ester Transport Protein HN Ginsberg,J Clin Invest. 2000;106:453–458.

16 Why diabetics are more prone to ADD? 07/09/13Why diabetics are more prone to ADD?↑HSLPathophysiology of Diabetic Dyslipidemia - HN Ginsberg in J Clin Invest 2000, explains the mechanism of dyslipidemia in Diabetics - Insulin resistance in Type 2 diabetes mellitus leads to increased lipolysis in the fat cells in adipose tissue, because the inhibitory effect of insulin on hormone-sensitive lipase is removed, which leads to increased delivery of free fatty acids (FFAs) to the liver. Increased Delivery of FFA to liver increases VLDL formation (insulin resistance also increase Apo B formation in the Liver). So plasma VLDL (hence TG level) is increased. VLDL exchanges its TGs with HDL via Cholesterol ester transfer protein (VLDL gives away TG and accepts cholesterol ester from HDL)By the same mechanism it exchanges its TG for CE from LDL as well. The TGs now acquired by HDL and LDL are digested by lipoprotein lipase and/or hepatic lipase. LDL thus gets converted to the more atherogenic small-dense LDL and HDL loses its Apo A – 1 which gets excreted through kidneys – lowering HDL levels.IR: Insulin Resistance CE, cholesteryl esters; FFA, free fatty acids; TG, triglycerides.CETP: Cholesterol Ester Transport Protein HN Ginsberg,J Clin Invest. 2000;106:453–458.

A combined analysis of the 29 studies yielded an adjusted odds ratio of 1.72 (95% CI, ) in a comparison of extreme thirds of usual triglyceride values (ie, individuals with usual log-triglyceride values in the top third of the population compared with those in the bottom third). This odds ratio was adjusted in all but one study for at least age, sex, smoking status, lipid concentrations, and most studies also adjusted for blood pressure. The above figure shows the CHD risk ratio adjusted for several established risk factors and grouped according to several study characteristics (ie, duration of follow-up, sex, fasting status, and adjusted for HDL-cholesterol). The data indicate that the impact of triglycerides on CHD risk is similar in women and men and also regardless of duration of follow up. The data suggest no important differences in the strength of associations between triglycerides and CHD in studies of fasting participants compared with studies of nonfasting participants. Finally, adjustment for HDL-cholesterol attenuated the magnitude of the association between triglyceride level and CHD risk. The conclusion of the study is that there is a strong and highly significant association between triglyceride value and CHD risk.Reference1. Sarwar N, et al.

25 Hazard Ratio for CHD is directly related to TG concentration CHD risk is directly proportional to serum triglycerides in a large study of > 3,00,000 patients. The odds ratio for coronary heart disease was 1.18 (95% CI ; p=2.6x10(-7)) per C allele, which was concordant with the hazard ratio of 1.10 (95% CI ) per 16% higher triglyceride concentration recorded in prospective studies T>C was significantly associated with higher VLDL particle concentration (mean difference per C allele 12.2 nmol/L [95% CI ]; p=9.3x10(-8)) and smaller HDL particle size (0.14 nm [ ]; p=7.0x10(-5)), factors that could mediate the effects of triglyceride. These data are consistent with a causal association between triglyceride-mediated pathways and coronary heart diseaseThe Emerging Risk Factors CollaborationJAMA November 11; 302(18): 1993–2000

28 Relevance of TG<100 mg/dL - lower the TG lower the sd-LDL-C 07/09/13Relevance of TG<100 mg/dL - lower the TG lower the sd-LDL-CAt fasting TG<100 mg/dL, 85% population has predominant large buoyant LDL particles while if fasting TG>250 mg/dL 85% of population has predominant sd-LDL-C particles. sd-LDL is known to be more atherogenic, keeping TG at mg/dL may not be optimal to reduce atherosclerosisPattern B: a predominance of small, dense LDL particlesPattern A: large, more buoyant LDL particles predominateMost doctors believe that TG lowering drugs (PPAR Alpha agonists) are not required except when TG > 250 mg/dl. A following reference suggests that 85 % of total LDL will be Small Dense LDL(sdLDL). when TG is 250. so to reduce the sdLDL, TG should be reduced to 100 mg/dl (when sdLDL is just 15%). As sdLDL is known to be more atherogenic, keeping TG at may not reduce atherosclerosis completely. and target of TG < 100 mg/dl may be considered.ALP – Atherogenic Lipoprotein Phenotype"A threshold appears to exist for a fasting TG concentration above which there will be a predominance of small, dense LDL particles(pattern B) and below which large, more buoyant particles will predominate (pattern A). The TG concentration that produces a shift from one subclass pattern to another varies with each patient. At a fasting TG concentration ,100 mg/dL, 85% of the population has pattern A, whereas at a fasting TG concentration .250 mg/dL, 85% will have pattern B 17. Thus, lowering the TG concentration from 600 mg/dL to 260 mg/dL is unlikely to change a patient’s LDL particle size because most patients have a threshold for shifting LDL subclass pattern within the range of 100 to 250 mg/dL"Austin et al, Circulation. 1990; 82:

31 07/09/13Myth:There is a widespread myth that PPARalpha agonists do not reduce CV events in diabetics (e.g. primary analysis if FIELD and ACCORD)FACT : Sub-analysis of the above two trials show benefit in high TG and low HDL

It did reduce total cardiovascular events, mainly due to fewer non-fatal myocardial infarctions and revascularisations. The higher rate of starting statin therapy in patients allocated placebo might have masked a moderately larger treatment benefit.Thru this study they were also trying to find out if fenofibrate had a pleiotropic benefit like statins.EndpointsPrimary - Composite of CHD death or non-fatal MI at 5 year follow-upSecondary - Composite of total CV events, CV mortality, total mortality, stroke, coronary revascularization and all revascularization at 5 year follow-upKeech A et al, Lancet 2005; 366: 1849–61

Fibrate therapy produced a 10% RR reduction (95% CI 0-18) for major cardiovascular events (p=0.048) and a 13% RR reduction (7-19) for coronary events (p<0.0001), but had no benefit on stroke (-3%, -16 to 9; p=0.69). We noted no effect of fibrate therapy on the risk of all-cause mortality (0%, -8 to 7; p=0.92), cardiovascular mortality (3%, -7 to 12; p=0.59), sudden death (11%, -6 to 26; p=0.19), or non-vascular mortality (-10%, -21 to 0.5; p=0.063).

71 The importance of controlling both glucose and lipid levels in Diabetic dyslipidemia gave rise dual agonistsPPARα is found in the liver, kidney, heart, skeletal muscle and vasculature, is implicated in the uptake and oxidation of fatty acids and lipoprotein metabolism. PPARgamma is mainly expressed in adipose tissue with lower expression detected in a wide range of differing tissues like spleen, intestine, pancreas, colon, kidney, skeletal muscle and macrophages. PPARγ agonists have beneficial effects on glucose homeostasis by increasing insulin sensitivity and glucose disposal and prevent the loss of beta cell mass in the pancreas. Fibrates are PPARα agonist used for triglyceride lowering in clinics and PPAR gamma agonists, Rosiglitazone and Pioglitazone are proven to be efficacious as insulin sensitizing agents for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.Diabetes Aug;54(8):
