AIM To investigate changes in maternal serum resistin levels during pregnancy and postpartum and clarify their relationship to insulin resistance. METHODS Thirty normal pregnant women were compared to 30 women diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). Serum resistin levels were collected at the time of glucose challenge test (26-28 weeks), at 38 gestational weeks and at the third postpartum day and measured with enzyme immunoassay. Correlation of resistin to the homeostatic model… CONTINUE READING
