A prospective study of epicardial adipose tissue and incident metabolic syndrome: the ARIRANG study.

Increased epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) may be closely associated with the development of metabolic abnormalities. We investigated whether EAT predi...

A Prospective Study of Fatty Liver Index and Incident Hypertension: The KoGES-ARIRANG Study.
Although non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome, its influence on hypertension development is poorly understood. We investigated whether fatty liver disease, as assessed by the fatty liver index, could pr

Incremental Predictive Value of Serum AST-to-ALT Ratio for Incident Metabolic Syndrome: The ARIRANG Study.
The ratio of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) to alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is of great interest as a possible novel marker of metabolic syndrome. However, longitudinal studies emphasizing the incremental predictive value of the AST-to-ALT ratio

Combined Effect of Initial and Longitudinal Increases in γ-Glutamyltransferase on Incident Metabolic Syndrome: ARIRANG Study.
Although γ-glutamyltransferase (GGT) is well known to be associated with metabolic syndrome (MS), prospective data on baseline and longitudinal changes in GGT levels and incident cases of MS are limited. We aimed to examine prospective associations b

Prospective study of serum uric acid levels and incident metabolic syndrome in a Korean rural cohort.
Recent studies have demonstrated an association between serum uric acid (SUA) levels and metabolic syndrome (MetS). However, paucity of available data regarding the cause and effect relationship between SUA and MetS in healthy adults is still a big c

Epicardial adipose tissue thickness and plasma homocysteine in patients with metabolic syndrome and normal coronary arteries.
Increased epicardial adipose tissue thickness and plasma homocysteine levels are associated with Metabolic Syndrome (MS) and coronary artery disease. The majority of patients with MS have subclinical or manifest coronary artery disease. The aim of th

Relationship between epicardial adipose tissue thickness and vitamin D in patients with metabolic syndrome.
Metabolic syndrome is a systemic disorder and manifests as a group of conditions including abdominal obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension and coronary artery disease. The importance of epicardial adipose tissue has been proven through recognition of i

Epicardial adipose tissue is associated with visceral fat, metabolic syndrome, and insulin resistance in menopausal women.
Epicardial adipose tissue has been associated with several obesity-related parameters and with insulin resistance. Echocardiographic assessment of this tissue is an easy and reliable marker of cardiometabolic risk. However, there are insufficient stu

The Association between the Epicardial Adipose Tissue Thickness and Oxidative Stress Parameters in Isolated Metabolic Syndrome Patients: A Multimarker Approach.
The risk for cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes mellitus significantly increases in the patient population with metabolic syndrome (MeS). The present study aimed to investigate the association between the epicardial adipose tissue thickness

Relationship between deep subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue and metabolic syndrome: a case control study.
The deep subcutaneous adipose tissue (dSAT) is closely related to the obesity-associated complications similarly to the characteristics of visceral adipose tissue (VAT). However, the association between dSAT and metabolic syndrome (MS) is unclear. Th

Fatty liver index as a simple predictor of incident diabetes from the KoGES-ARIRANG study.
The fatty liver index (FLI), calculated from serum triglyceride, body mass index, waist circumference, and gamma-glutamyltransferase, is considered a surrogate marker of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). We investigated whether FLI predicts t
