Background: Since the measurement of fasting insulin is cumbersome with no standard assay available, an insulin-free equation for estimating insulin resistance was sought and developed. In 2010, the product of the fasting levels of triglycerides and glucose (TyG), the so-called triglycerides and glucose index (TyG index), was suggested as a useful surrogate measure for insulin resistance in healthy adults. Objective: To calculate TyG related parameters (TyG index, TyG-BMI, TyG-WC) and adiposity indicators (VAI, LAP, BAI) of study subjects. Method: Cross sectional analytical study. Result: Our study recommended TyG-WC, TyG-BMI and TyG index as better predictors of IR in adult individuals.
Keywords: TyG index, TyG-BMI, TyG-WC, VAI, LAP, BAI.
