The association of alcohol and alcohol metabolizing gene variants with diabetes and coronary heart disease risk factors in a white population
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Epidemiological studies have shown a J- or U-shaped relation between alcohol and type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease (CHD). The underlying mechanisms are not clear. The aim was to examine the association between alcohol intake and diabetes and intermediate CHD risk factors in relation to selected ADH and ALDH gene variants.
