Association of serum omentin levels with cardiac autonomic neuropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a hospital-based study


, : Association of serum omentin levels with cardiac autonomic neuropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a hospital-based study. Cardiovascular Diabetology 14(): 140-140

Whereas a few studies have reported associations of serum omentin levels with subclinical atherosclerosis in patients with diabetes, little information is available with respect to the associations of serum omentin levels and diabetic microvascular complications. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships of serum omentin levels and vascular complications including cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). We recruited 97 patients who evaluated complications of diabetes. CAN was assessed by five standard cardiovascular reflex tests according to Ewing's protocol. Diabetic nephropathy (DN), retinopathy (DR), and peripheral neuropathy (DPN) were evaluated. Serum omentin levels were assessed by ELISA. Atherosclerotic burden was evaluated by measuring the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) and ankle brachial index (ABI). The prevalence of CAN increased borderline significantly across the omentin tertiles (p = 0.05) and CAN point increased significantly and progressively across the omentin tertiles (p = 0.013). The prevalence of other microvascular complications (DPN, DN, and DR) did not differ among omentin tertiles. The mean levels of baPWV also increased significantly and progressively across the omentin tertiles (p = 0.002). Serum omentin levels were significantly positively correlated with CAN point (p = 0.004) and borderline significantly correlated with baPWV (p = 0.05) after multivariate adjustment. Regarding linear regression analysis for CAN point, univariate regression analysis demonstrated that CAN point associated with omentin, diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and hsCRP. Multiple regression analysis revealed that omentin levels, together DBP and baPWV correlated with CAN point. This present study suggests that serum omentin levels may be independently associate with CAN in patients with T2DM.
