Authors: Mohammad Salman Sheikh, Kashif Shaikh, Matthew Jay Budoff

Abstract

Ahmad et al. (1) in their study aim to identify the interactions between adiposity and triglyceride associated genetic variants in the apparently healthy women from the Women’s Genome Health Study (WGHS). The purpose of this study was to identify the link between lifestyle-related exposures and an inherent risk for higher triglyceride levels.
