Insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome are contributors to atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Insulin resistance is also responsible in pathogenesis of type II diabetes. Several studies previously evaluated the role of H. pylori infection in coronary heart disease and type II diabetes. Recently published data have described the association between H. pylori infection with insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome. However, this is still a controversial subject. Here in, we reviewed current status and present data toward this topic.
