Relationship between serum uric acid concentration and insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.
BACKGROUND Associations between hyperuricemia, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes have been reported, but few of the studies have been conducted in the Korean population. The present study examinedExpand

Resolution of fatty liver and risk of incident diabetes.
CONTEXT Fatty liver is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, but whether an increased risk remains in people in whom fatty liver resolves over time is not known. OBJECTIVE TheExpand

Associations between two single nucleotide polymorphisms of adiponectin gene and coronary artery diseases.
Adiponectin, an adipocyte-secreted protein, is known to have anti-atherogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties and its serum levels are decreased in obesity, type 2 diabetes, andExpand

Combined Influence of Insulin Resistance, Overweight/Obesity, and Fatty Liver as Risk Factors for Type 2 Diabetes
OBJECTIVE There is dissociation between insulin resistance, overweight/obesity, and fatty liver as risk factors for type 2 diabetes, suggesting that different mechanisms are involved. Our aim was toExpand
