  1. Relative ratios of resistin/MCP-1, resistin/RBP4, visfatin/MCP-1, visfatin/SFRP5, MCP-1/RBP4, leptin/MCP-1 were calculated and correlated with insulin levels, and HOMA-IR, QUICKI and HOMA-β indexes. The correlations were calculated by using Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient. Spearman’s rho (ρ) and P values are presented
