Visfatin, a new adipokine, facilitates adipogenesis and has insulin-mimetic properties. There are data that hyperglycemia causes an increase in plasma visfatin levels in people with T2DM this increase gets more prominent as the glucose intolerance worsens. The aim of the study was to investigate plasma visafatin, leptin and adiponectin in obese women with normal and impaired glucose tolerance. Thirteen obese women (age: 34.50±2.57 yrs; BMI 35.05±0.57 kg/m2) with norm...
