The role of different lipid measures for incident hypertension during more than 12 years follow-up: Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study

To examine the associations of different lipid measures and related indices with incident hypertension during a median follow-up of 12.89 years.

The #triglyceride- #glucose index is associated with the severity of hepatic #steatosis and the presence of liver #fibrosis in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: a cross-sectional study in Chinese adults

The triglyceride-glucose index (TyG) is a reliable predictor of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Its association with the severity of hepatic steatosis and liver fibrosis in NAFLD is poorly understood. This study evaluated the relationship between these factors in NAFLD. ..The TyG index was significantly correlated with the severity of hepatic steatosis and the presence …
