Abstract

Adiponectin is an inflammatory cytokine produced by adipose tissue and its protective role has been recognized in the pathogenesis of obesity. A lower concentration in obesity patients is noted, in conditions of resistance to insulin, diabetes mellitus, and CKD. Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus have a potential risk of atherosclerosis, while low concentrations of adiponectin are considered as predictor for the occurrence of complications in patients with type 2 diabetes. The aim of this study was to investigate in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with and without diabetic nephropathy the correlation of adiponectin levels and CKD stage or degree of albuminuria. We studied 119 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with different stage of renal function, the levels of plasma adiponectin, and the BMI. A statistically significant difference of plasma adiponectin levels was noted between the initial and end stages of CKD, the highest levels seen in ESKD patients. Also, the levels of adiponectin were elevated in patients with greater albuminuria (statistically significant difference between groups 1 and 3, p=0.05). The levels of adiponectin were found to decrease with increasing the stage of obesity (ANOVA, p<0.05). Finally, the group of patients receiving glitazones had higher plasma adiponectin levels compared to those not receiving. It concluded that the levels of adiponectin increase with the deterioration of renal function and with enhancement of albuminuria, while decreasing as the stage of obesity worsens. The administration of glitazones was associated with increased plasma levels of adiponectin.
