Purpose. To investigate the parameters of lipid metabolism in diabetic and non-diabetic subjects carrying different types of M235T polymorphism of ATG with HFpEF.
Methods. One hundred and thirty-three patients (58 males and 75 females; mean age 61,78±9,7 years) with HFpEF were examined. One hundred patients were carriers of 235T allele (MT + TT genotypes), 33 patients were homozygous carriers of 235M allele of M235T polymorphism of ATG. T2DM had 83 patients and 49 were non-diabetic patients. By using of polymerase chain reaction, different genotypes of M235T polymorphism of ATG were determined. The lipid metabolism parameters were performed by using kits of reagents "NUMAN" (Germany). Continuous variables as median (25th, 75th percentile) are expressed. Mann-Whitney U test was used for nonparametric comparisons. All statistical tests were 2-tailed and p<0,05 was considered statistically significant.
Results. In the group of T2DM subjects levels of serum total cholesterol ((6,00 (5,00 : 6,80) vs to 5,10 (4,30 : 5,90) mmol/l), very low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol ((0,92 (0,62 : 1,33) vs 0,69 (0,47 : 0,83) mmol/l) and triglycerides ((2,10 (1,50 : 2,95) vs 1,6 (1,15 : 1,85) mmol/l, respectively) were increased comparing with the group of non-diabetic patients, carrying the 235T allele of M235T polymorphism, (p<0,005). No significant differences in lipids parameters such as levels of serum total cholesterol ((5,85 (4,57 : 7,05) vs to 5,65 (4,7 : 6,77) mmol/l), very low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol ((0,88 (0,67 : 1,15) vs 0,85 (0,55 : 0,98) mmol/l) and triglycerides ((2,05 (1,80 : 2,57) vs 1,9 (1,22 : 2.20) mmol/l) were found in M235M carriers with T2DM and without it, respectively, (p > 0,05).
Conclusions: The most unfavorable lipid parameters profile had diabetic patients with HFpEF and MT + TT genotypes of M2335T polymorphism of ATG.
