CONTEXT The insulin-mimetic adipocytokine visfatin has been linked to obesity. The influence of weight loss on plasma visfatin concentrations in obese subjects is unknown yet. OBJECTIVES In this study we investigated whether plasma visfatin concentrations are altered by weight loss in patients with obesity. DESIGN AND PATIENTS In a prospective study, fasting plasma visfatin, leptin, and adiponectin concentrations were measured before and 6 months after gastric banding in 31 morbidly obese… CONTINUE READING
