Study Description
Brief Summary:
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

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease Drug: Growth Hormone Other: interruption of the traitment with growth hormone Phase 3

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To measure of Growth hormone [ Time Frame: 3 YEARS ]
    that growth hormone modulates directly, or indirectly by the changes of insulin sensitivity

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. to measure the adipocytokines levels (leptin, adiponectin, resistin) the metabolism (production and/or clearance) of the intestinal TRL [ Time Frame: 3 YEARS ]
