OBJECTIVE It was hypothesized that resistin links obesity with diabetes, but this has not been studied in children and adolescents to date. PATIENTS We determined serum resistin levels of 135 obese (body mass index, 32.0 +/- 6.2 kg/m2; age, 12.6 +/- 3.4 yr) and 201 lean children (body mass index, 18.7 +/- 2.4 kg/m2; age, 12.5 +/- 2.5 yr) by a newly developed and extensively evaluated in-house immunoassay. These results were controlled for their association with markers of puberty, obesity… CONTINUE READING
