Abstract

Objective Insulin resistance (IR) has been described in adults with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), though its mechanism has not been fully clarified. In this study, it was aimed to investigate insulin sensitivity for the first time in children with juvenile SLE (jSLE) by considering the effect of the already known contributing factors of IR.
