Abstract

Obesity and Type 2 diabetes (T2D) are a growing pandemic associated with
metabolic dysregulation and chronic inflammation. Adipose tissue and skeletal muscles are key endocrine organs known to be involved in maintaining glucose homeostasis. Dysregulation in the adipomyokines secreted by these organs has
been suggested to play a role in the etiology of obesity-induced complications. Studies have shown that obesity, T2D and bone metabolism are interrelated. T2D and obesity have also been linked to osteoporosis. Our objective was to study the expression of two adipomyokines Irisin and Meteorin-like protein (METRNL) in individuals with obesity and T2D. Knowing that Irisin is involved in bone
remodeling, we also wanted to understand the association of these adipomyokines with various bone markers in our population.
