    Aim:Biotransformation of blueberry juice by the Serratia vaccinii bacterium gave rise to adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) phosphorylation and glucose uptake in muscle cells and adipocytes, but inhibited adipogenesis. This study investigated the antiobesity and antidiabetic...

    Omentin is an adipokine preferentially produced by visceral adipose tissue with insulin-sensitizing effects. Its expression is reduced in obesity, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Omentin is also positively related with adiponectin, high-density lipoprotein levels and negatively related...

    We evaluated the levels of some inflammatory adipocytokines in 363 obese and 365 non-obese subjects. We measured: body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), fasting plasma glucose, fasting plasma insulin (FPI), homeostasis model assessment (HOMA) index, blood pressure, lipid profile,...

    Summary: In agreement with the results of animal studies, the plasma osteocalcin level is positively associated with improved glucose tolerance and insulin secretion and sensitivity. In addition, the plasma osteocalcin level is inversely associated with the development of diabetes; however, the...

    BACKGROUND: Little is known about the pathophysiology of ghrelin secretion in growth hormone-deficient adults treated with growth hormone, and the relationship between plasma ghrelin and hyperinsulinemia induced by an oral glucose load has not been investigated in these patients. OBJECTIVE: In...
