A surge to increase the production via usage of chemicals at both industrial and agricultural arena has forced humans to be routinely and imprudently exposed to a wide variety of endocrine disrupting chemicals. The overall aim of the study was to evaluate possible relation that might exist between bisphenol-A (BPA) and the adipose tissue hormones, and further impact on adiposopathy. In the present study, the role of BPA, an"endocrine disruptor"with respect to adiposopathy was evaluated in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. For the study, 150 healthy control subjects and 150 newly diagnosed diabetes patients were recruited. Fasting venous blood samples was analyzed for several biochemical parameters such as serum glucose, lipid profile, insulin, adiponectin, leptin, TNF-α, IL-6, IL-1, free fatty acid. Concentrations of BPA were also measured both in control and diabetic subjects. Serum BPA concentration was found to be significantly higher in diabetic subjects in comparison to the control subjects. Levels of BPA were found to be positively correlated with BMI andWC in diabetic subjects. Also, it was found to be positively correlated with leptin and negatively correlated with adiponectin in diabetic subjects. Therefore, the current study suggested more deleterious effect of BPA on diabetes and its pathophysiology.
