Leptin appears to be the missing link between fat and fertility [2]. When controlled for body weight, no difference is seen between women with and without PCO, however leptin is still involved, and as insulin sensitizing agents may decrease leptin gene transcription [3]. Leptin stimulates all levels of the reproductive axis, i.e… Expand
