Advanced research to investigate possible methods of treatment in patients with metabolic syndrome is required. Adipocytokines are secreted by the adipose tissue. These polypeptides and their functions are also known last few years.
Adipocytokines are also anti-inflammatory and antiatherogenic, and they increase insulin sensitivity. As result of these skills, adipocytokines should be useful for diagnosis and treatment for metabolic syndrome. In this study we investigated the relationship between metabolic syndrome and adipocytokines levels.
In our study, 40 patients (22 males, 18 females) were divided into three groups according to the number of metabolic syndrome diagnostic criteria. Serum adiponectin, resistin, leptin, EGF, TNF-α levels and abdominal fat tissue thicknesses were compared.
At the end of this study there was no significant relationship between abdominal adipose tissue thickness, serum TNF-α, adiponectin, resistin levels and the number of diagnostic criteria for metabolic syndrome.
