BACKGROUND/AIMS The metabolic syndrome (MS) is associated with insulin resistance (IR), inappropriate fibrinolysis and high plasma leptin concentrations. The aim of this study was to quantify fibrinolysis and MS-related variables in obese prepubertal children and to evaluate changes in these variables as a result of improved body mass index (BMI), IR and leptin levels following 9 months of treatment. METHODS The homeostasis model assessment for insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), leptin… CONTINUE READING
