Changes in visfatin levels after oral glucose tolerance test in women with gestational diabetes mellitus
Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice, 06/26/2012
Zhaoxia L et al. – Visfatin levels increased following an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in normal pregnancy, and this increase correlated with metabolic indexes such as blood glucose, blood fat, and insulin resistance. Conversely, visfatin levels in women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) increased to lesser extent than in normal pregnancy, which suggests a disorder in the relationship between visfatin, blood glucose and insulin.
