Little is known about the acute regulation of adiponectin in humans. In animal studies, adiponectin increases the clearance of free fatty acids (FFA) from the circulation by increasing skeletal uptake and oxidation of lipid, thereby regulating the FFA concentration. However, it is unknown if FFA regulate adiponectin. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of an acute reduction in free fatty acids on adiponectin concentration in healthy subjects. Ten normal male subjects were… CONTINUE READING
