Session Type: ACR Poster Session A
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Background/Purpose: SLE patients present a higher prevalence of insulin resistance (IR) and metabolic syndrome (
Methods: SLE patients were consecutively enrolled in a cross-sectional study. A metabolomic approach using ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled with high-resolution mass spectrometry (UHPLC-HRMS) was developed in serum samples from non-diabetic SLE women. Activity (SLEDAI-2K) and damage (SLICC) index scores, as well as carotid intima-media thickness (IMT), were determined in SLE patients. Patients with a Quantose IR score of ≥ 63 were defined as IR.
Results: We enrolled 70 SLE patients with a mean ± SD age of 39.3±10.6 years and median disease duration of 11 years (IQR: 8-14).
Conclusion: In non-diabetic SLE women, the prevalence of IR based on Quantose IR was 64.2% using UHPLC-HRMS.
