Correlation Study of Insulin Resistance and Adipocytes Factors in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.382
Synopsis: 
The aim of this study was to investigate the insulin resistance and adipocytes factors in patients with Type 2 diabetes. The results of stepwise regression analysis showed that resistin, TNF-α and FFA were significantly associated with insulin resistance index (IRI).

ABSTRACT

Objective: 30 cases of non-obese patients with type 2 diabetes, 30 cases of obese patients with type 2 diabetes and 30 cases of healthy controls were selected to detect the levels of serum resistin, TNF-α, FFA, fasting blood glucose, fasting insulin, total cholesterol and triglycerides.

The Role of Resistin Level and Genetic Study for Patients with Hypercholesterolemia

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.581
Synopsis: 
This study deal with determination of resistin for patients (33 females and 31 males) who attend Rizgary Teaching Hospital, Erbil, Iraq, between November 2014 and March 2015, the study included biochemistry parameter analysis (ox-LDL), Hcy, TC, HDL-C, MDA) as well as teh antioxidant (GHS, A, C, E), and genetic study MTHFR gene (exon4) for females with (hypercholesterolemia and FH).

ABSTRACT

Objective: The study aimed to investigate the role and level of resistin and correlation some biochemical parameters (ox-LDL, Hcy, LDL-C, TC, HDL, BMI and lipid peroxidation MDA), Antioxidant (GSH, A, C, E), also we studied familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) to investigate the effects of MTHFR gene mutation.

Circulating Adipokine Levels in Non-diabetic Subjects with High Normal Blood Pressure

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.332
Pages: 
260–2
Synopsis: 
Adipokines are adipocyte-secreted peptides that are involved in several pathways that lead to insulin resistance, inflammation, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. Increased levels of resistin and/or decreased levels of adiponectin are associated with cardiovascular mortality and the development of hypertension.

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the levels of the adipokines, resistin and adiponectin in normotensive and high normal blood pressure patients.
