GUATTINI, Veronica Lucas de Olivera; PIOVESAN, Carla Haas; WITTKE, Estefânia  and  MARCADENTI, Aline. Hypertriglyceridemic waist (EWET), glycidic and lipid profile in patients with newly diagnosed heart attack. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.3, pp.1004-1008. ISSN 1699-5198.

Introduction: hypertriglyceridemic waist phenotype (EWET) has been poorly tested in patients with established cardiovascular disease. Objectives: to evaluate a possible association between EWET, glycidic and lipid profile in patients with newly diagnosed heart attack (HA). Methods: cross-sectional study among 45 inpatients with myocardial infarction. Lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL-c, LDL-c, serum triglycerides, TC/HDL-c ratio, non-HDL cholesterol) and glycidic profile (fasting glucose, serum insulin, glycated hemoglobin, HOMA-IR, glucose/insulin ratio) were obtained. Weight, height and waist circumferences (WC) were assessed; BMI and EWET were calculated. Analysis of Covariance Models (ANCOVA) was used to assess the objectives. Results: mean age of participants was 58.75 ± 12.41 years and 55.6% (n = 25) were men. After adjustment for age, gender and BMI, EWET was significantly associated with lower HDL-c (p = 0.02), higher TC/HDL-c ratio (p = 0.003) and a trend toward fasting glucose (p = 0.11). Conclusion: EWET phenotype seems to be associated with a worse lipidic profile in patients with newly diagnosed HA.
