Abstract

The objective of this study was to assess relationships between adiponectin and the status of glucose metabolism and to investigate whether low adiponectin levels were independently associated with the risk of impaired glucose metabolism and type 2 diabetes in Korean population. A total of 3,508 participants (mean age 56. 3±8. 0 years; BMI 24. 7±3. 2 kg/ m2; 41. 0% male) were enrolled. Participants with normal glucose metabolism (NGM), impaired glucose metabolism (IGM), and type 2 diabetes were 58. 0%, 28. 9%, and 13. 1%. Adiponectin levels in both men and women were significantly lower in participants with IGM and type 2 diabetes than participants with NGM. Low adiponectin levels in both men and women were strongly associated with the risk of IGM and type 2 diabetes in large population-based cohort of rural adult Koreans.
