Synopsis: 
Identifying persons who are insulin resistant is important for preventing Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This study assesses the ability of the triglyceride to high density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio to identify Caribbean-born Hispanic black and non-Hispanic black persons with insulin resistance.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The objective of this research was to determine if the triglyceride (TG) to high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (TG/HDL) ratio has similar utility for discriminating insulin resistance in Caribbean-born black persons with and without Hispanic ethnicity.
