  1. Sex and ethnic group differences in fat distribution in young United Kingdom South Asians and Europids.

    Article - En anglais

    South Asians (Asians) have a high prevalence of non-insulin-dependent diabetes (NIDDM) and a high incidence of ischaemic heart disease (IHD).

    To investigate whether this predisposition can be detected in young adult life, metabolic risk factors for these diseases were compared in U.K. Europid and Asian students.

    Among the 80 Europid and 80 Asian students aged between 20 and 23 years and well matched for body mass index (BMI), Asians were found to be relatively hyperglycaemic [5.1 (5.0-5.2) vs 4.6 (95% CI : 4.5-4.7) mmol/l] and hypercholesterolaemic [5.3 (5.2-5.4) vs 4,9 (4.8-5.0) mmol/l] and to have a higher waist/hip and subscapular/triceps ratio.
