Insulin resistance and LDL/HDL

Post by biology_06er » Tue Jun 15, 2010 12:35 am

Hi there,

I'm currently reading about how diabetes leads to CVD via increase LDL/lowered HDL but everywhere I look it doesn't excatly say HOW insulin resistance leads to this....one point I can think of is that ppl with diabetes esp type 2 tend to be overweight thus contributing to LDL/low HDL but are there other ways actually invovling insulin etc...?

Pleassee help,
Thanks
