Aims/hypothesisPlasma levels of adiponectin are inversely associated with body mass. We hypothesised that adipose tissue distribution and body composition influences adiponectin levels.MethodsWe assessed plasma adiponectin concentrations and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) measurements of body composition among 2,820 participants from the Dallas Heart Study.ResultsAmong both women and men, adiponectin levels were higher in whites than in either Hispanics or African-Americans (for women… CONTINUE READING
