Association of inflammation markers with epicardial adipose tissue in drug naïve metabolic syndrome
The present study shows that both LMR and MHR may be novel and useful indicators of MetS, and there is an association among epicardial adipose tissue thickness, insulin resistance, lymphocyte to monocyte ratio (LMR) and monocyte count-to-high density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio (MHR) levels in drug naïve patient with metabolic syndrome.

Epicardial Fat: Definition, Measurements and Systematic Review of Main Outcomes
A systematic review of the literature finding associations of EF with metabolic syndrome and coronary artery disease concludes that EF is a visceral fat deposit with potential implications in coronary arteries disease. Expand
Circulating irisin is lower in gestational diabetes mellitus.
The present cross-sectional investigation and meta-analysis is the first to show significant lower circulating irisin in subjects with GDM. Expand
Meta-analysis of the relation of echocardiographic epicardial adipose tissue thickness and the metabolic syndrome.
Echocardiographic EAT thickness is significantly higher in patients with the MS than in those without, but differences exist by ethnicity. Expand
Echocardiographic Epicardial Fat Thickness Is Associated with Carotid Intima‐Media Thickness in Patients with Metabolic Syndrome
EFT is associated with increased CIMT in patients with MetS, and the waist circumference, total and LDL‐cholesterol, fasting glucose, triglycerides, systolics and diastolic blood pressure levels, hs‐CRP, and homeostasis model assessment index for insulin resistance (HOMA‐IR) were significantly increased.

Serum irisin levels were significantly higher in women with ICP compared to healthy pregnant controls, suggesting that Irisin is a newly discovered myokine that is able to regulate glucose and lipid levels, thus improving insulin sensitivity. Expand
Serum irisin levels in new-onset type 2 diabetes.
It is found that serum irisin levels were decreased in T1D patients and inversely associated with newly diagnosed T2D, suggesting that irisin may play a crucial role in glucose intolerance and T2 D. Expand
Epicardial adipose tissue is associated with visceral fat, metabolic syndrome, and insulin resistance in menopausal women.
Echocardiographic assessment of epicardial fat may be a simple and reliable marker of cardiovascular risk in postmenopausal women and was associated with visceral adipose tissue and other obesity parameters. Expand
Exercise-induced irisin secretion is independent of age or fitness level and increased irisin may directly modulate muscle metabolism through AMPK activation.
In vitro experiments showed that irisin facilitates glucose and lipid metabolism in human muscle through AMP kinase phosphorylation, and exercise-induced irisin secretion is independent of age or fitness level. Expand
Epicardial fat from echocardiography: a new method for visceral adipose tissue prediction.
Epicardial adipose tissue showed a strong correlation with anthropometric and imaging measurements of VAT, suggesting transthoracic echocardiography could be an easy and reliable imaging method for VAT prediction. Expand
FNDC5/Irisin Is Not Only a Myokine but Also an Adipokine
This study reveals that rat skeletal muscle secretes a 25 kDa form of FNDC5, while the 12 kDa/irisin theoretical peptide was not detected, and is the first to reveal that white adipose tissue (WAT) also secretes F NDC5; hence, it may also behave as an adipokine. Expand
