Cross-sectional association between blood pressure, in vivo insulin sensitivity and adiponectin in overweight adolescents.

Abstract

AIMS To examine the cross-sectional relationship between blood pressure (BP) and (1) in vivo insulin sensitivity (IS) and (2) circulating adiponectin levels in overweight adolescents, and to determine if these relationships are driven by adiposity. METHODS Sixty-five white pubertal overweight adolescents underwent a hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp to… (More)
