High triglyceride/HDL cholesterol ratio is associated with silent brain infarcts in a healthy population
Triglycerides (TG)/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ratio is a marker of small/dense low-density lipoprotein particles, which are closely associated with various metabolic and vascular diseases. However, the role of TG/HDL cholesterol ratio in cerebrovascular diseases has not been well studied. In this study, we evaluated the relationship between TG/HDL cholesterol ratio and the presence of silent brain infarct (SBI) in a neurologically healthy population.
The TG/HDL cholesterol ratio was positively associated with the prevalence of SBI in a neurologically healthy population.
