  • adiponectin
  • To investigate the relationship between anthropometric profile, dietary intake, lipid profile and fasting glycemia with serum levels of adipokines (adiponectin and PAI-1) and adhesion molecules (ICAM-1 and VCAM-1) in women without breast cancer undergoing routine mammographic screening. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Parameters were measured using the following: a) Plasma glucose by glucose oxidase method b) CRP by immunoturbidimetric method (Roche/ Hitachi analyser) c) insulin by Medgenix INS-ELISA immunoenzymetric assay by Biosource (Belgium) d) Leptin, Adiponectin by radioimmunoassay kits by Linco Research (St. Charles MO) e) Resistin by immunoassay kits by Phoenix Pharmaceuticals INC (530 Harbor Boulevard, Belmont CA 94002, USA).

  • There was a significant positive relationships between log adiponectin and 2-hr insulin values, p = 0.028 and history of hypertensions and a ischemic heart disease p = 0.008 with R = 0.65. (ebscohost.com)
  • Conclusion: Resistin levels had an inverse correlation with adiponectin levels, indicating an inverse relationship between pro-inflammatory cytokines and adiponectin. (ebscohost.com)
  • Emerging cardiovascular (CV) risk factors such as adiponectin, glycosilated hemoglobin, waist circumference and the high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) level can aid CV risk stratification. (revespcardiol.org)
  • In addition to its antidiabetogenic properties, adiponectin posses an antiatherogenic effect and shows an inverse relationship with other risk factors, such as blood pressure (BP), total cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein concentrations. (revespcardiol.org)
  • 21,22 Because of the existing differences related to geographic location, it is important to determine the relationship between adiponectin concentrations and cardiovascular risk factors specifically for the Spanish population. (revespcardiol.org)
  • lipid
  • Fasting (12 hour) blood samples were drawn to measure lipid profile, glucose, insulin, glycosylated haemoglobin A1c (HBA1c) and C-reactive protein (CRP). (biomedcentral.com)
  • Body composition and fasting plasma lipid levels were measured at the beginning and the end of the dietary intervention. (biology-online.org)
  • Diabetes
  • Aims: First, to conduct a detailed exploration of the prospective relations between four commonly used anthropometric measures with incident diabetes and to examine their consistency across different population subgroups. (diva-portal.org)
  • Second, to compare the ability of each of the measures to predict five-year risk of diabetes. (diva-portal.org)
  • Harrell's concordance statistic was used to test the predictive accuracy of each measure for diabetes risk at five years. (diva-portal.org)
  • Each of the measures had a positive association with incident diabetes. (diva-portal.org)
  • Any of these measures would suffice to assist in primary diabetes prevention efforts. (diva-portal.org)
  • Many studies over the last 30 years have shown that too much abdominal fat (the fat located in your abdomen) increases the risk of diabetes and heart disease whether or not you are obese or normal weight. (cardiometabolic-risk.org)
  • association
  • This study aimed to assess changes in upper airway size and regional facial and abdominal fat with weight loss and their association with OSA improvement. (bmj.com)
  • The present study assesses and compares the association of waist circumference and body mass index with presence and severity of coronary artery calcium in asymptomatic men. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Well-controlled prospective studies are needed to assess these two measures of body fat distribution and its association with the development of PVD in men and women. (umassmed.edu)
