||In this population study we measured 7 markers of insulin
resistance variables, 7 measures of endothelial dysfunction and 4 measures of acute phase
activation among 107 healthy subjects 40-75 years of age. There are correlations not only
between the members of the insulin resistance cluster, of the endothelial markers, and of
acute phase markers, but also similar relationships between the different clusters such as
markers of endothelial dysfunction was associated with those of insulin resistance.
