Özet

Aims: Insulin resistance is a very prevalent disturbance in clinical practice and associated with morbidity and mortality. Homeostasis Model Assessment (HOMA) and Quantitative insulin sensitivity check index (QUICKI) are two practical insulin resistance estimating methods. We compared these two methods in different disorders including type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and chronic hepatitis C.
