  • The adiponectin levels were only measured in T0 normoglycemic people who became hyperglycemic (IFG/type 2 diabetes) at T3 and sex-, age-, and BMI-matched T3 normoglycemic control subjects.

    * Difference between T3 hyperglycemic and T3 normoglycemic for adiponectin levels: men: P = 0.451 (NS); women: P = 0.015; all subjects: P = 0.020.
