Serum amino acid profiles in childhood predict triglyceride level in adulthood: A 7-year longitudinal study in girls

Wiklund et al. The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism 2016;101(5):2047-55

In this study, researchers aimed to examine whether serum amino acid profiles associate with triglyceride concentrations during pubertal growth and predict hypertriglyceridemia in early adulthood.

Results found that Serum leucine and isoleucine were associated with future serum triglyceride levels in girls during pubertal growth and predicted hypertriglyceridemia in early adulthood.
