Low HDL-cholesterol levels in young adults can predict arterial stiffness

By Owner Dec 13, 2022

Based on an extensive study, researchers from the University of Eastern Finland reported that arterial stiffness might play a role in developing dyslipidemia.
The researchers found that arterial stiffness in adolescence may be a causal risk factor for hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance in young adulthood. Likewise, adolescent arterial stiffness appears to temporally precede low HDL-cholesterol in young adults, although with borderline statistical significance. This conclusion is based on a study that involved 3,800 adolescents aged 17 years and was followed up for seven years.
