Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) impairs hepatic clearance of atherogenic postprandial triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRLs). It is possible that increased atherogenecity of LDL during diabetes is associated with a preponderance of small dense (sd)-LDL subpopulation, that is more prone to oxidative modification than large buoyant (lb)-LDL. In addition free fatty acids promote diabetic dyslipidemia through increasing VLDL synthesis in the liver, and by virtue of cholesterylester transfer protein, modifying LDL to increase small-dense LDL subfractions and to decrease HDL cholesterol. In addition to hypercholesterolemia, other lipid and lipoprotein abnormalities collectively referred to as diabetic dyslipidemia are likely to contribute to vascular risk. Appl. Recent trials have suggested the need for more aggressive treatment of dyslipidemia in this subpopulation than the current recommendations by the NCEP-ATP III.

If you ask me, it really comes down to something like 30% educating yourself and making smart choices, and 70% pure dumb luck! I was induced in my first pregnancy at 39 weeks. In the 38th week of pregnancy, I complained about uber-itchy feet to the doctor. You can read about his name and backstory here, and here goes the rest…
