Özet

Objective Adiponectin, an adipose tissue-derived hormone, has been reported to have anti-inflammatory and anti-atherogenic effects. The physiological effect of adiponectin on the metabolic changes and its relation with cardiovascular risk factors in thyroid dysfunction states is still not clear. The aim of the study was to evaluate plasma adiponectin level and its relation to cardiovascular risk factors in patients with thyroid dysfunction.
