We also divided them into those above or below the median weight at five years, thus producing four cells. One group was of relatively low birth weight and remained relatively low-weight at 5 years of age (low– low). Another group was relatively light at birth and relatively heavy at 5 years (low–high), that is, the catch-up group. The remaining two groups were those who had been relatively heavy at birth and remained heavy (high–high) and the so-called ‘catch-down’ group (high–low). First we examined whether 46 Terry Wilkin children of relatively low birth weight who remained relatively light had lower levels of insulin resistance than those who had ‘caught up’.

It is only in the last 15 years, since Reaven first linked insulin resistance with cardiovascular risk in the so-called ‘syndrome X’ or ‘metabolic syndrome’, that these relationships have become clearer (Reaven, 1988). , 1993). The metabolic syndrome can be viewed as a cartwheel, with insulin resistance as the hub. There are six spokes (the sextet), each in its own right an independent risk factor for early cardiovascular death, but in combination responsible for the premature mortality attributable to vascular disease which has characterized the past 50 years in industrialized societies.
