Zinc Finger 259 Gene Polymorphism rs964184 is Associated with
Serum Triglyceride Levels and Metabolic Syndrome
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is characterized by a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors that include: abdominal
obesity, dyslipidaemia, hypertension, insulin resistance and impaired glucose tolerance. Recent genome wide
association studies have identified several susceptibility regions involved in lipid metabolism that are also
associated with MetS. We have explored the association of 9 genetic polymorphisms involved in lipid
metabolism and hypertension, including: MTHFR C677T, ...

The Relationship between Diet Quality and Acculturation of Immigrated South Asian American Adults and Their Association with Metabolic Syndrome
Even though the total SA American population is increasing rapidly, there is a paucity of
information on the relationship between diet quality, acculturation and health outcomes
such as Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) in the low-income South Asian (SA) sub-population.
Our goal was to examine diet quality, degree of acculturation and their potential influence
on MetS in a diverse sample of SA Americans. A convenience sample of 401 adult SA ...

Postmenopausal Women Have Higher HDL and Decreased Incidence of Low HDL than Premenopausal Women with Metabolic Syndrome
Abstract: It is well known that plasma lipids, waist circumference (WC) and blood pressure (BP)
increase following menopause. In addition, there is a perceived notion that plasma high-density
lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) concentrations also decrease in postmenopausal women. In this
cross-sectional study, we evaluated plasma lipids, fasting glucose, anthropometrics and BP in 88 post
and 100 pre-menopausal women diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. No differences were ...

Major components of metabolic syndrome and nutritional intakes in different genotype of UCP2 −866G/A gene
polymorphisms in patients with NAFLD
Background: It has been suggested that dietary modifications in combination with genetic predisposition play an
important role in the pathogenesis of NAFLD. In the current study we aimed to investigate the major components of
metabolic syndrome in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nutritional intakes according to
different genotype of uncoupling protein-2 (UCP2) −866G/A gene polymorphism in these patients.
