Correlation of hyperinsulinemia with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and the level of electrolytes in blood serum




insulin, hyperinsulinemia, gastrointestinal tract, Zn


The aim of our research is to determine the correlation of insulin resistance with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and the level of trace elements in blood serum. Metods: The study cohort included a total of 413 patients aged 20–75 years (mean age 37.3 ± 11.4 years) referred to the National Institute of Endocrinology from 2017 to 2019The cohort included 120 men and 293 women . A retrospective selection of the study population was made based on patient history, where hyperinsulinemia was diagnosed. We considered fasting hyperinsulinemia in blood serum as compensatory hyperinsulinemia during insulin resistance. On the basis of which, we included individuals with hyperinsulinemia in the study group of insulin resistance, while the control group consisted of 161 subjects with normoinsulinemia.
