Weight change and lipoprotein particle concentration and particle size: a cohort study with 65-year follow-up
Mäntyselkä et al. Atherosclerosis 2012;223(1):239-43
This paper demonstrates the relation between weight change and lipoprotein particle concentrations and sizes in a general population cohort in a longitudinal setting.
Moderate weight loss is related to favourable and weight gain to unfavourable changes in lipoprotein subclass profiles. The population level findings underline the importance of weight control as a modifier of cardiovascular risk factors.
