BACKGROUND Leptin and adiponectin are secreted from adipose tissue and exert opposing effects on C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and insulin resistance. As hypertrophic adipocytes secrete more leptin and less adiponectin, the leptin-to adiponectin ratio (LAR) has been proposed as a useful measure of insulin resistance and vascular risk. We investigated whether LAR may serve as a better predictor than either leptin or adiponectin alone for low-grade inflammation and insulin resistance… CONTINUE READING
