INTRODUCTION: Insulin resistance and atherogenic dyslipidemic profile are the main
characteristics of the metabolic syndrome. The aim of this study was to discover the positive
relation between atherogenic dyslipidemic profile and increased insulin resistance determined
through homeostatic model assessment (HOMA) in obese women subjects.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: HOMA (H) was determined as a ratio of the multiplied fasting
glucose (G0) and insulin levels (I0) divided with 22.5 (G0xI0/22.5). According to H the patients
were divided in 3 groups: 1
st gr. H<4 and BMI 28±8kg/m2
, 2nd gr. H=4-8 and BMI 40±73.8kg/m2
and the 3rd gr. H>8 and BMI 41±68kg/m2
. The examinees were 90 women divided in 3 equal
groups not different according to their age. Triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (TC), high
density lipoprotein (HDL-C), low density lipoprotein LDL-C, expressed in mmol/l and indexes
of the atherogenic risk C/HDL-C and LDL/HDL-C were determined.
RESULTS: First group had TG values 1.05±0.48, TC 4.8±0.79, HDL-C 1.19±0.47, LDL-C
3.27±0.76, C/HDL-C 3.05±1.18, LDL/HDL-C 4.45±1.48. In the 2nd group the patients had
higher correspondent values: 1.39±1.01, 4.97±0.88, 1.04±0.33, 3.33±0.48, 3.62±1.42 and
DISCUSSION: Patients in the 3rd gr. had significantly higher TG levels 1.8±0.8 (p<0.001),
significantly lower HDL-C levels 0.88±0.19 (p<0.011), significantly higher C/HDL-C ratio
4.2±1.32 (p<0.015) and LDL/HDL-C had significantly higher level 5.26±1.69 (p<0.003).
HOMA index correlated significantly with TG (p<0.001), LDL-C (p<0.011), C/HDL-C
(p<0.001), LDL/HDL-C (p<0.001) and significantly negatively with HDL-C (p<0.001).
CONCLUSION: HOMA correlated significantly to dyslipidemic profile and was confirmed as a
good indicator of insulin resistance. It was confirmed that insulin resistance determined with
HOMA index was associated with dyslipidemic profile.
