Hypertriglyceridemia, which represents the main lipid disorder in patients with type2 diabetes mellitus [8], is supposed to be one of the factors contributing to the increased prevalence of atherosclerosis in these patients. In the Paris Prospective Study, hypertriglyceridemia was found to be an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease in normocholesterolemic diabetic patients [3]. More recently, these epidemiological data were confirmed by Bergstrom et al. [1]. They described an independent association of coronary heart disease with elevated fasting total triglycerides and with an impaired glucose tolerance in 219 second-generation Japanese-American men.
