Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: The plasma concentration ratio of triglyceride (TG)/high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) is a simple way to estimate insulin resistance. We aimed to evaluate the TG/HDL-C ratio as a simple clinical way to identify apparently healthy individuals with insulin resistance and enhanced risk of future cardiovascular disease (CVD).

METHODS: One thousand seven hundred twenty men, aged 50 years, free from diabetes and CVD when evaluated at baseline in 1970-1974 were followed for 40 years regarding incident CVD (myocardial infarction and/or ischemic stroke, n = 576).

RESULTS: Participants with a high TG/HDL-C ratio (highest quartile >1.8) at baseline were more insulin resistant, with a significantly more adverse cardiometabolic risk profile (P < 0.001) at baseline, compared with those with a lower ratio. This group also showed an increased risk of CVD [hazard ratio, HR 1.47 (95% confidence interval 1.26-1.93) P < 0.001]. Fourteen percent of subjects with metabolic syndrome, in whom insulin resistance is increased, were also at enhanced CVD risk [HR 1.75 (1.42-2.16) P < 0.001].

CONCLUSIONS: Twenty-five percent of apparently healthy 50-year-old men with the highest TG/HDL-C plasma concentration ratio had a significantly more adverse cardiometabolic profile at baseline, and developed more CVD over the next 40 years, compared with those not meeting this cut point. Determining the TG/HDL-C ratio in middle-aged men provided a simple and potentially clinically useful way to identify increased risk of developing CVD in persons free of diabetes or manifest CVD.
