CONTEXT Fibroblast growth factor-21 (FGF21) is an important metabolic regulator suggested to improve glucose metabolism and prevent dyslipidemia. An FGF21-resistant state that increases circulating FGF21 has been reported in obese patients. Although regular exercise prevents metabolic disease, the relationship of the fitness level to serum FGF21 level and body fat distribution in humans remains poorly understood. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to determine the relationship among the… CONTINUE READING
