    Study background: Chemerin is one of the recently discovered adipocytokines, a chemoattractant protein consisting of 131 to 137 amino acids expressing mostly in adipocytes. Chemerin affects adipogenesis and glucose homeostasis, have a direct or indirect impact on the inflammatory response. International scientific literature studies the relationship between chemerin and diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome markers. Methods: The study included 159 clinically asymptomatic patients (age 30-45) with an average age of 37.3 ± 4.0 years, in total 79 women. The following anthropometric measurements and biochemical parameters were measured: weight, height, BMI and fasting glucose, insulin, glycated hemoglobin, total cholesterol with its fractions, liver enzymes and immunological marker-serum chemerin. All patients underwent a CT examinatio.. Read More»
