  1. Sex differences in fasting glycemia as a risk factor for ischemic heart disease death.

    Article - En anglais

    The relation between fasting plasma glucose and mortality from ischemic heart disease was examined in a population of 3,458 nondiabetics (aged 40-79 years) in Rancho Bernardo, California, who were free of heart disease at baseline and were followed for an average of 14 years, from 1972 to 1987.

    On the basis of Cox proportional hazards analysis, the observed sex differential in the association between plasma glucose and ischemic heart disease mortality proved to be statistically significant and independent of the effects of age, systolic blood pressure, body mass index, plasma cholesterol, plasma triglyceride, and, in women, estrogen use.
