Relation of resistin to obesity and some cardiovascular risk factors in hypertensive female patients

Gursoy G et al. – The authors showed that in female obese hypertensive patients resistin levels were higher than in the non–obese patients. The authors also think that resistin may be associated to C–reactive protein levels but not to homocysteine or microalbuminuria in both non–obese and obese hypertensive patients.

  • The study population consisted of 42 non–obese and 42 obese hypertensive females.
  • After making comparisons between C–reactive protein, homocysteine, microalbuminuria and resistin in the two groups, the authors also sought correlations between all parameters in non–obese and obese groups.

  • In the obese hypertensive group resistin levels were higher than in the non–obese hypertensive group (p < 0.001), but the authors did not find any difference in other parameters.
  • The authors found a positive correlation between resistin and C–reactive protein in both non–obese and obese hypertensive groups (In non–obese hypertensives p < 0.05 and in obese hypertensives p < 0.001 ).
