CONTEXT Low adiponectin levels, by regulating insulin resistance and metabolic profile, may contribute to the markedly increased risk of atherosclerosis in diabetic subjects. OBJECTIVE The complex interrelationships between adiponectin and metabolic abnormalities have not yet been fully assessed in diabetic women. DESIGN/SETTING/PATIENTS We performed a cross-sectional evaluation of the association between circulating adiponectin and glycemia, lipid-lipoprotein levels, and inflammatory… CONTINUE READING
