  1. Type A behavior and metabolic syndrome precursors in young adults.

    Article - En anglais

    The association between type A behavior and a cluster of parameters of the metabolic syndrome was studied in 919 randomly selected healthy young adults.

    Type A behavior was measured using the Type A Behavior Questionnaire for the Finnish Multicenter Study and the Hunter Wolf A-B Rating Scale.

    The results showed that type A men scored higher on the « Metabolic Syndrome Precursors Factor, » representing a metabolic entity, than did non-type A men.

    In addition, type A behavior had a moderating effect on the relationship between parameters of the metabolic syndrome, that is, interdependence of these somatic factors was stronger in type A men than in non-type A men.

    These findings were not true of women.

    It is discussed whether type A behavior might affect bodily functions through increased activity along the pituitary-adrenal system resulting in insulin resistance, compensatory hyperinsulinemia, and other characteristics of the metabolic syndrome.
