fasting insulin oral glucose tolerance test, and fasting lipid profile were done in this children.
insulin resistance in the study population was 31.1% as compared to 6.81% in control group. Applying the chi-square test for the insulin resistance index, the P value obtained was <0.05 (significant). All other parameters were normal in both the study and control group.
born as small for gestational age is a significant risk factor for the development of insulin resistance as evidenced by this study.
