          Abstract

          Using cross-sectional and longitudinal analysis of data from the San Antonio Heart Study, syndrome X (primary insulin resistance syndrome) has been redefined in terms of hyperinsulinaemia combined with changes in glucose tolerance, lipid pattern, blood pressure and body fat distribution. Syndrome X is itself an atherogenic cardiovascular risk factor, which interacts with environmental and genetic factors to lead to the eventual development of the endpoint of cardiovascular disease.
