Abstract

Objective: In this study we aimed to investigate the relationship between insulin resistance and pre-diabetic patients' serum resistin levels, inflammatory and oxidative stress parameters that take part in the progress of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Resistin is a newly discovered adipokine which is secreted from adipose tissue that has important roles in the pathogenesis of obesity mediated-insulin resistance.
