Atherogenic Index of Plasma (AIP) a Tool to Assess Changes in Cardiovascular Disease Risk Post Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Baseline data calculation of (a) Atherogenic index of plasma (AIP) score in all study groups. Participants with morbid obesity and T2D () show a significantly higher AIP (,), compared to morbid obesity alone (,). In participants with normal-weight and T2D (), the calculated AIP () reflecting a lower CVD risk was compared to participants with morbid obesity and T2D. Black, light gray, dark gray, and white bars represent calculated baseline AIP of morbid obese + T2D, morbid obese, normal weight + T2D, and normal weight groups, respectively. (b) The estimated vascular age (Framingham score) has a significant rise in participants with T2D from both weight groups morbid obese ( year), and normal weight ( year, ) compared to their actual age. Participants with morbid obesity showed a significant difference between the vascular age ( year, ) and chronological age. There was no significant difference between the vascular age and the actual age of people with normal weight. Black and white bars represent actual age and estimated vascular age, respectively, in each group. , and .
