OBJECTIVES Adiponectin has been implicated in the pathophysiology of metabolic syndrome and coronary artery disease in humans. Whether adiponectin is related to bone mineralization remains unclear in adults as well as in adolescents. In this study, we aimed to determine the relationship between plasma adiponectin, leptin concentrations and bone density, including total-body bone mineral density (BMD) and bone mineral content (BMC) in adolescence. PATIENTS AND MEASUREMENTS We studied 105… CONTINUE READING
