Correlation of Serum Vaspin, Omentin-1, and adiponectin with metabolic phenotypes in Type-2 diabetes mellitus patients
Adipocytokines and T2DM
Objectives: To investigate adipocytokines’ (vaspin, omentin-1, and adiponectin) correlation with metabolic phenotypes in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients.
Methods: This case-control research was done at the Diabetic Clinic in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), from November 2018 to March 2019. Seventy-five T2DM patients and 75 gender, age, and BMI-matched healthy subjects were recruited for this research.
Results: In DM patients, the concentrations of serum vaspin and omentin-1 were substantially lower (p<0.001) than in the control group. A significant positive relationship between vaspin concentration and DBP (p<0.001), BMI (p<0.001), and waist circumference (p<0.001) was found in patients and control subjects, while FPG (p<0.016), serum insulin (p<0.001), HOMA-IR (p<0.001), TC (p<0.001), TG (p<0.001), and LDLc (p<0.001) were significantly interrelated among patients. Serum concentrations of omentin-1 and ADN were significantly negatively correlated with serum insulin, HOMA-IR, and TG among the DM group. Serum vaspin and ADN levels were significantly higher in the cases and control groups with BMI>25, and no gender-wise variance was observed in adipocytokines levels. Binary logistic regression analysis showed a significantly negative predictive relationship of vaspin and omentin-1 with DM.
Conclusion: The DM group displayed substantially lower serum vaspin and omentin-1 levels. However, there was no consistent relationship observed between these adipocytokines and metabolic phenotypes.
