Objectives: Several metabolic disturbances are seen in acromegaly however, data regarding the contribution of irisin to these disturbances is currently insufficient. In a cohort of patients with acromegaly, we measured serum irisin levels in active and controlled cases and determined independent factors that effect serum irisin including fibronectin type III domain-containing protein 5 (FNDC5) genotyping.
