AIMS Resistin is an adipocyte-derived factor implicated in obesity-associated type 2 diabetes (T2DM). This study examines the association between human serum resistin, T2DM and coronary heart disease. METHODS One hundred and fourteen Saudi Arabian patients (male: female ratio 46:68; age 51.4 (mean +/- SD)11.7 years; median and range: 45.59 (11.7) years and BMI: 27.1 (mean +/- SD) 8.1 Kgm2 median and range: 30.3 (6.3) were studied. Serum resistin and C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of… CONTINUE READING
