Abstract
Objective— The association between insulin resistance (IR) and coronary artery calcification (CAC) has been uncertain after adjustment for metabolic syndrome components. We aimed to evaluate whether IR is associated with CAC prevalence or progression independently of metabolic syndrome components. Approach and Results— We conducted a population-based study in a random sample of Japanese men aged 40 to 79 years and determined IR using the...
