Low serum adiponectin levels in subjects born small for gestational age: impact on insulin sensitivity

Abstract

Objective:Increasing evidence point to the role of the adipose tissue on the insulin resistance associated with reduced fetal growth. Since adiponectin, exclusively produced by the adipose tissue, exerts an important insulin-sensitizing activity, it appears critical to investigate the effect of being born small for gestational age (SGA) on adiponectin… (More)
