Abstract

Objective: To elucidate the link between TSH and obesity, the relationship between TSH and adipocytokines were previously studied. Animal studies demonstrated a possible relationship between vaspin levels and thyroid functions. In this study, we aimed to investigate vaspin levels in hypothyroid states and its relationship with insulin resistance parameters in humans.
