    Abstract

    Atherosclerosis is the combination of pathological changes that not only affect cells deposited along the walls of the arteries, but also the inflammatory ones. Stimulus implied in the cause of atherosclerosis, which include LDL, mechanical forces followed by high blood pressure, and inflammatory response induced by metabolic and hemodynamic aspects as risk factors, are diverse. Resistance to insulin, followed by visceral obesity and diabetes mellitus type 2 represent equally chronic and complex systemic alterations. Thus, it is not strange that the intersection of these disorders and their final outcomes cause atherosclerotic diabetes. This article reviews the endocrine, metabolic and genetic aspects of endothelial dysfunction and its relation with visceral obesity.
