Background: Diabetes is a common endocrine disease in human kind. In most type II diabetic patients, obesity and overweight status account as the serious health problems worldwide and variety of endocrine factors well known that have regulatory role in weight balance and body composition including Leptin and IGF-I factor. The aim of this study was to examine the correlation between Leptin and IGF-I in type II diabetics and controls.
Methods: As a case- control study, 38 type 2 diabetics (20 males and 18 female with mean age 49.22) and 46 healthy controls (16 males and 30 females with mean age 49.52) are recruited. We measured the concentrations of FPG, IGF-I, HbA1C and IGFBP-3 in both groups. FPG was measured by enzymatic glucose oxidase method and Hb Gold analyzer HPLC was used to measure HbA1C. Determination of Leptin, IGF-I, IGFBP-3 and Insulin concentrations were carried out using ELIZA method. P< 0.05 was considered as statistically significant.
Results: The mean of BMI and age were not significantly different in both groups. The mean serum levels of IGF-I, Leptin, Insulin, FPG and HbA1c concentrations in type II diabetics were significantly higher than controls (P< 0.05). In males, the mean serum levels of Leptin were statistically lower than in females in both groups. There was a strong correlation between IGF-I and IGFBP-3, Leptin and insulin, IGF-I and age, and BMI with FPG in both patients and controls (P< 0.05). A reverse correlation was observed between IGF-I and HbA1c in patients and controls (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: It is speculated that based on this findings, Leptin and IGF-I system could have regulatory roles in body composition and fat content particularly in obese and overweight diabetic patients and have significant correlation with Insulin, glucose, BMI and age.
