Title Triacylglycerol And Cardiovascular Risk
Description Triacylglycerol And Cardiovascular Risk. The modulatory effects of dietary fatty acids
Creation Date 01 December 1999
Doc type Article
Document Abstract:
There is a wealth of evidence linking raised triacylglycerol (TAG) levels with the generation of pro-atherogenic changes in serum lipoproteins, especially the formation of small dense low density lipoprotein (LDL) and a reduced level of cardio protective high density lipoproteins (HDL) causing a subsequently increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The underlying mechanisms for this are discussed here along with the modulatory effect of dietary fatty acids
