- Plasma cholesteryl ester transfer (CET) is elevated in T2DM and hypothyroidism.
- We tested whether CET is related to thyroid function in euthyroid T2DM subjects.
- CET was correlated positively with TSH in T2DM but not in non-diabetic subjects.
- Plasma triglycerides also interacted positively with TSH on plasma CET in T2DM.
- Low normal thyroid function confers increased CET in the context of hyperglycemia.
BackgroundPlasma cholesteryl ester transfer (CET), reflecting endogenous transfer of cholesteryl esters from HDL to very low and low density lipoproteins, is elevated in Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and may predict (subclinical) cardiovascular disease. Low normal thyroid function may adversely affect lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerosis development. We tested whether plasma CET is related to thyroid function in euthyroid T2DM and non-diabetic subjects.Subjects and methodsPlasma CET was measured in 74 T2DM and 82 non-diabetic subjects with thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine levels within the reference range.ResultsPlasma CET was 20% higher in T2DM (PÂ =Â 0.003) coinciding higher cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) mass (PÂ =Â 0.009) and triglycerides (PÂ =Â 0.02). In univariate analysis, plasma CET was correlated positively with TSH in T2DM only (rÂ =Â 0.330, PÂ =Â 0.004). Multiple linear regression analysis revealed a positive interaction between the presence of T2DM and TSH on plasma CET after controlling for age, sex, body mass index, non-HDL cholesterol, triglycerides and CETP mass (Î²Â =Â 0.167, PÂ =Â 0.030). The relationship of plasma CET with TSH was also positively modified by plasma glucose and HbA1c (interaction terms: Î²Â =Â 0.119, PÂ =Â 0.036, Î²Â =Â 0.170, PÂ =Â 0.001, respectively). Additionally, plasma triglycerides interacted positively with TSH on plasma CET in T2DM (Î²Â =Â 0.198, PÂ =Â 0.011).ConclusionsLow normal thyroid function, as inferred from higher TSH, confers increased plasma CET in the context of chronic hyperglycemia. Effects of thyroid function on plasma CET may be particularly relevant in hypertriglyceridemic T2DM. Low normal thyroid function could influence atherosclerosis susceptibility in T2DM by affecting the plasma cholesteryl ester transfer process.
