Although ceramides are involved in the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease and other inflammation-associated disorders, there is a paucity of data on the association between plasma ceramides and inflammatory biomarkers in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Therefore, we explored whether there was an association between plasma leucine-rich α-2 glycoprotein 1 (LRG1) concentrations (i.e., a novel proinflammatory signaling molecule) and specific plasma ceramides in postmenopausal women with T2DM.

Abstract

Although ceramides are involved in the pathophysiology of cardiovascular disease and other inflammation-associated disorders, there is a paucity of data on the association between plasma ceramides and inflammatory biomarkers in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Therefore, we explored whether there was an association between plasma leucine-rich α-2 glycoprotein 1 (LRG1) concentrations (i.e., a novel proinflammatory signaling molecule) and specific plasma ceramides in postmenopausal women with T2DM.
