Abstract

We evaluated the ratio of adiponectin level to homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (A/H ratio) as a risk marker for metabolic syndrome (MetS) and each of its components. The A/H ratio may prove to be a powerful index for evaluation of risk for MetS and each of its components.
