Studied Parameter Overweight healthy subjects (n=27) Overweight T2DM patients (n=34) Obese healthy subjects (n4=40) Obese T2DM patients (n=42)
Irisin (ng/ml) 45.97 ± 6.03▲ 37.06 ± 10.89 NS 49.58 ± 7.55 NS 47.56 ± 10.49 ▲
HbA1c %   8.32 ± 2.09   6.84 ± 1.11▲
Duration of DM (month)   87.21 ± 68.10   27.21 ± 24.82▲
ANOVA and t-test revealed ▲ significant differences between obese T2DM patients and overweight T2DM patients, between overweight healthy subjects and overweight T2DM patients (P=0.001). NS: No significant differences between each of the obese healthy and overweight healthy subjects.
