Table 1 Correlation between serum vaspin levels and age, glycemia, body fat distribution, indices for insulin secretion and insulin resistance (HOMA-β, HOMA-IR) and hsCRP in the groups according to glucose tolerance [normal glucose tolerance (NGT), impaired fasting glucose (IFG), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and newly-diagnosed type 2 diabetes (NDT2D)] and the presence of Metabolic syndrome (MetS)

From: Is vaspin related to cardio-metabolic status and autonomic function in early stages of glucose intolerance and in metabolic syndrome?
