Background and aims: We evaluated whether hyperinsulinemia and/or insulin resistance are independently associated with plasma lipids, uric acid and blood pressure in non-diabetic subjects. Conclusions: Hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance might contribute with distinct and independent mechanisms to the development of several metabolic and hemodynamic disorders often clustering in the same individual. ln particulr, hypertriglyceridemia, low HDL-cholesterol and hyperuricemia seem to be related to both hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance, whereas hypertension seems to be related only to insulin resistance.
