Table 3 Effects of insulin resistance on serum PCT and CRP levels.

From: Serum procalcitonin and CRP levels in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: a case control study

  STEATOSIS STEATOHEPATITIS
  Insulin Resistance - Insulin Resistance + P value Insulin Resistance - Insulin Resistance + P value
PCT 0.05 ± 0.01 0.06 ± 0.02 0.71 0.06 ± 0.01 0.04 ± 0.02 0.12
CRP 6.90 ± 2.50 5.60 ± 1.10 0.59 5.90 ± 1.20 5.20 ± 1.10 0.67
  1. NAFLD patients grouped according to presence of insulin resistance. HOMA-IR > 2.5 was considered as insulin resistance. Insulin resistance does not determine the serum PCT or CRP levels.
