Serum lipoproteins and apolipoproteins in children during the first five years of diabetes
1997 (English)In: Acta Paediatrica. Supplement, ISSN 0803-5326, Vol. 418, 11-14 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Serum lipoproteins and apolipoproteins were followed in 34 children during a period of 5 years from the onset of diabetes. The group did not differ in these respects from a healthy control group after 5 years of disease. The variation in serum triglycerides and very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) triglycerides was more pronounced, some patients having high values. Serum triglycerides and VLDL lipids were significantly correlated to subcutaneous fat, measured as triceps and subscapular skinfolds. None of the patients had albuminuria, so lipid levels could not be related to renal albumin excretion. There was no significant correlation between any serum lipid and haemoglobin A1c.
