A comparison of serum leptin concentrations in obese and normal weight Japanese women with regular menstrual cycle


Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology 47(1): 87-89
A comparison of serum leptin concentrations in obese and normal weight Japanese women with regular menstrual cycle
Leptin is a protein that is synthesized and secreted from adipose tissue. We examined the changes in serum leptin level during menstrual cycle in 5 normal and 5 obese Japanese women, and compared the data with those of serum estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4) concentrations. Serum leptin levels were highly correlated with body mass index and percent body fat, being higher in the obese group than in the normal group.
