BACKGROUND Obestatin is a recently identified peptide encoded by the same ghrelin gene. It has been reported that obestatin has anorexigenic and antigastroprokinetic activities as opposed to ghrelin. We investigated simultaneously obestatin, acyl ghrelin, and des-acyl ghrelin in the restricting type of anorexia nervosa (AN-R) patients. METHODS Three hormonal responses to the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) were measured in 10 AN-R patients and 10 healthy women. RESULTS Plasma obestatin… CONTINUE READING
