OBJECTIVE The aim is to study the relationship between insulin resistance and serum adiponectin and resistin in obese children. METHODS A total 113 obese and 37 nonobese children were enrolled and serum adiponectin and resistin were measured. RESULTS Compared with controls, higher insulin resistance by homeostasis model (HOMA-IR) and lower whole body insulin resistance index (WBISI)were found in obese children (all P <0.05). The adiponectin levels in obese children and controls were 3.63… CONTINUE READING
