Abstract

This study was designed to assess the relationship between plasma lipid levels and endothelial function in Asian Indians without cardiovascular risk factors living in the United States. While traditional risk factors do not account for the increased incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) in Asian Indians, low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, elevated lipoprotein (a), and insulin resistance are consistently found in Asian Indians with CHD. Endothelial function was measured in 86 healthy Asian Indians (mean age 33 years) free of cardiac risk factors with LDL levels
