Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with various metabolic disorders, and oxidative stress was suggested to play an important role. In the present study, we aimed to investigate serum adiponectin and oxidative stress markers, especially protein carbonyls, and to evaluate the correlation between these parameters and lipid, insulin and fasting glucose concentrations in OSA patients and controls.
