Serum apolipoprotein B48 concentration is high in patients with impaired glucose tolerance and increases after oral glucose ingestion in patients with diabetes mellitus

      Objectives: The postprandial accumulation of chylomicron remnants (CMR) is highly atherogenic and observed in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). We evaluated whether CMR was accumulated in patients with the impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) by measuring a constituent of CMR, apolipoprotein B-48 (apoB-48) concentration, and was increased by the oral glucose load.
