OBJECTIVE Alterations of hormones involved in food intake can lead to obesity and related-diseases. The aim of the present study was to measure plasma levels of appetite-related hormones: insulin, leptin, adiponectin, acylated ghrelin, and cortisol in connection with eating behaviors among obese and non-obese women. MATERIAL AND METHOD The present study(More)
Recently, neuropeptide Y (NPY) and Y1 receptor (Y1R) were found to be expressed and synthesized in adipose tissue. This study aimed to compare NPY and Y1R mRNA expressions in subcutaneous and visceral fat tissues as well as serum NPY in normal weight and obese humans and their correlations with clinical parameters and peripheral metabolic factors. We(More)
The aim of the present study was to compare serum leptin, kisspeptin, total adiponectin, high molecular weight (HMW) adiponectin and neuropeptide Y (NPY) levels between girls with central precocious puberty (CPP; n=26, 7-9.5 years old) and age-matched controls (n=29) including or excluding obese girls. Leptin and NPY levels were comparable between CPP and(More)

BACKGROUND The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) accompanied with cardiometabolic complications has progressively increased in Thailand. The roles of insulin resistance, leptin, adiponectin, and free testosterone as prognostic indicators of MS among Thai population were evaluated MATERIAL AND METHOD Men and women aged 34 to 89 years (n = 308) having(More)
Adiponectin, visfatin, and omentin are adipokines involved in insulin sensitivity. This study aimed to determine interactions between these adipokines in subcutaneous and visceral fat and in serum, and their associations with clinical factors. Adiponectin was present at the highest levels in subcutaneous and visceral fat and serum. Subcutaneous adiponectin(More)
Effects of glucomannan as a supplementary treatment in type 2 diabetes mellitus were investigated by measuring ghrelin, leptin and insulin responses to OGTT. Glucomannan enhanced prandial ghrelin reduction when given before glucose load and impeded the rise of fasting ghrelin after 4-week supplement. Ghrelin-induced feeding may be attenuated by glucomannan.
BACKGROUND Adiposity is an inflammatory condition contributing to the morbidity and mortality of several disorders, including type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) and cardiovascular disease. OBJECTIVE To compare cardiometabolic risk factors between obese and non-obese Thai patients with T2DM MATERIAL AND METHOD: The cross-sectional study was done in 20 obese(More)
