Abstract

Recent studies have shown that haemostatic markers act as independent risk factors of cardiovascular disease. Few data are available on the relations between haemostatic markers and plasma apolipoproteins in obese patients; moreover there are contrasting reports concerning the effect of weight loss, induced by hypocaloric diets, on these parameters. We studied in 17 non-diabetic obese patients (1 IF, 6M, age 36, BMI 38, range 33-50) plasma levels of Apolipoproteins, fibrinogen, Factor VII (F-VII), plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) activity, before and 30 days after a moderately hypocaloric (daily caloric intake approx. 70% of REE), lowfat, diet. The mean weight loss of our patients during the study period was 6.8±2.7 Kg. At baseline, we find a significant (p
