Lipid metabolism in diabetes



Diabetes and lipid metabolism has been the subject of a number of recent reviews1-3. It has been suggested4 that abnormalities in lipoprotein metabolism can be understood by examining four sites of regulation of plasma lipoprotein transport:
  1. (1)

    production of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins,

  2. (2)

    lipoprotein lipase mediated triglyceride removal,

  3. (3)

    remnant catabolism,

  4. (4)

    extra-hepatic cholesterol rich lipoprotein catabolism.
