  1. High plasma insulin level associated with coronary heart disease in the elderly.

    Article - En anglais

    The relation between plasma insulin level and the prevalence of coronary heart disease was studied in a representative nondiabetic population sample of 396 men and 673 women aged 65-74 years in Kuopio, eastern Finland, in 1986-1988.

    No association between plasma insulin levels and the prevalence of previous myocardial infarction was seen, except for a positive relation between 2-hour insulin level and myocardial infarction in women (4.1, 4.1, and 11.9%, p<0.01; insulin quintiles I+II, III+IV, and V, respectively).

    However, the prevalence of ischemic electrocardiographic changes increased by quintiles of fasting plasma insulin (not significant) and 2-hour plasma insulin (39.8, 50.6, and 59.5% in men, p<0.01; 35.9, 39.0, and 53.0% in women, p<0.01).
