Ghrelin is a gastric hormone circulating in acylated (AG) and unacylated (UG) forms, and higher plasma total ghrelin (TG) and UG may be cross-sectionally associated with lower insulin resistance in metabolic syndrome patients. The potential value of ghrelin forms in predicting insulin resistance and its time-related changes in community-based population cohorts remains unknown.

Abstract

Ghrelin is a gastric hormone circulating in acylated (AG) and unacylated (UG) forms, and higher plasma total ghrelin (TG) and UG may be cross-sectionally associated with lower insulin resistance in metabolic syndrome patients. The potential value of ghrelin forms in predicting insulin resistance and its time-related changes in community-based population cohorts remains unknown.
