Objective: Increased abdominal visceral adipose tissue (VAT) deposition is associated with insulin resistance in obese and/or hypertensive patients. We investigated the association of insulin sensitivity with the amount of VAT in young, lean, non-treated males with recently established high normal blood pressure or hypertension grade 1 (HT).Subjects and methods: Twenty-one subjects with HT (age 20.3±0.6 years, BMI 22.4±0.5 kg/m2, sys...

The role of adipokines and inflammatory cytokines of adipose tissue for development of the growth hormone deficiency (GHD)-related metabolic derangements has not yet been completely understood. Therefore, we screened the protein level of 120 adipokines in subcutaneous adipose tissue (ScAT) of patients with GHD in adulthood.Subjects and methods: Sixteen GHD (10M/6F) with BMI 27±1.0 kg/m2, age 30±2 yrs and sixteen controls matched for ...
