          Abstract

          It has been shown in animals and in humans that retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) production from adipose tissue leads to generalized insulin resistance (IR). A more sensitive marker of circulating RBP4 is free plasma RBP4 expressed by RBP4 to transthyretin (TTR) ratio, since in circulation RBP4 is bound to TTR.
