Abstract: The capacity to correctly assess insulin resistance and its role in further obesity-associated metabolic derangement in children is under debate, and its determinants remain largely unknown. We investigated the association of the insulin secretion profile with other metabolic derangements and anthropometric features in children and adolescents with obesity, exploring the role of ethnicity. Growth and metabolic features, including fasting insulin levels and insulin secretory profile in an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), were analyzed according to ethnicity in 1300 patients with obesity (75.8% Caucasians/19.0% Latinos). Height and bone age were influenced by sex, ethnicity, and insulinemia. Latino patients had higher insulin (P  Obesity-associated hyperglycemia is unusual in our environment whereas fasting and late postprandial hyperinsulinemia are highly prevalent, with this being influenced by race and closely related with lipid metabolism impairment.
