The remnants of absorbed fat particles which circulate after a meal might cause atherosclerosis, but such a causal role is still unproven. High levels of such lipoprotein remnants are often found in patients with the metabolic syndrome. Increased activity and weight loss will diminish the cardiovascular risk factors caused by this syndrome including elevations of postprandial remnants.
