The Apolipoprotein B/Apolipoprotein A 1 ratio in relation to metabolic syndrome and its components in a Tunisian population



The Apolipoprotein B/Apolipoprotein A 1 ratio in relation to metabolic syndrome and its components in a Tunisian population







Study was undertaken to investigate the relationship between the Apolipoprotein B/Apolipoprotein A 1 (ApoB/ApoA 1) ratio and various characteristics of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) in a sample of the Tunisian population. The study included 33 adults -aged 35 74 (172 patients with MetS and 158 controls). Waist circumference (WC), blood pressure (BP), HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C), triglycerides (TG), glucose, insulin, and apolipoprotein concentrations were measured. Homeostasis model assessment (HOMA) was used to assess insulin resistance (IR). MetS was defined by NCEP-ATPIII report. The ApoB/ApoA 1 ratio was significantly higher in patients with MetS versus normal control subjects (p<.1). Mean values of ApoB/ApoA 1 ratio.
