Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCD) is the first cause of morbidity and mortality in insulin resistant states. The typical dyslipidemia that is associated with insulin resistance, which includes a postprandial increase of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRL) with excess of intestinal triglyceride-rich-lipoprotein-apoB-48 (TRL-apoB-48), is felt to play an important role in the accelerated ASCD. Recently, intestinal TRL-apoB-48 overproduction appeared as a newly recognized component of insulin resistance. There is only a limited amount of information in the literature regarding the factors and the mechanisms modulating the metabolism of intestinal TRL-apoB-48 in the setting of insulin resistance

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To measure of Growth hormone [ Time Frame: 3 YEARS ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    that growth hormone modulates directly, or indirectly by the changes of insulin sensitivity

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • to measure the adipocytokines levels (leptin, adiponectin, resistin) the metabolism (production and/or clearance) of the intestinal TRL [ Time Frame: 3 YEARS ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: September 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
