ADMA/SDMA

Cleveland HeartLab A, Inflammation, New Tests, Test

One of the earliest manifestations of endothelial dysfunction is nitric oxide (NO) deficiency, which promotes atherosclerosis. ADMA (asymmetric dimethylarginine) and SDMA (symmetric dimethylarginine), its structural isomer, are metabolites of L-arginine, an amino acid that is catalyzed to L-citrulline and NO by nitric oxide synthase (NOS).

Both ADMA and SDMA have distinct pathophysiologies and manifestations. ADMA is a competitive inhibitor of NOS thereby reducing NO production and promoting endothelial dysfunction. SDMA also interferes with NO production, but does so indirectly by reducing the cellular availability of arginine. ADMA is primarily cleared through enzymatic degradation in the bloodstream and identifies subclinical cardiovascular disease. Conversely, SDMA is primarily excreted in the urine and identifies reduced renal function.

Adiponectin

Cleveland HeartLab A, Metabolic, New Tests, Test

Adiponectin is an abundant hormone released by adipocytes (or fat cells), commonly referred to as an adipokine. Adiponectin plays a large metabolic role in the body, participating in the regulation of glucose levels, insulin sensitivity and lipid catabolism. Adiponectin also helps support proper endothelial functioning and has multiple anti-inflammatory properties, including inhibiting the transformation of macrophages to foam cells, one of the first steps of atherosclerosis.

Unlike other adipokines, adiponectin levels are lower in obese individuals. As adipocytes become larger with weight gain, they release less adiponectin. Among healthy individuals, women typically have higher adiponectin levels than men, and adiponectin levels tend to decrease as a person ages.
