Plasma adiponectin concentrations in children: relationships with obesity and insulinemia.


Adiponectin, a novel adipokine with anti-inflammatory and insulin-sensitizing properties, has been found to have independent negative associations with obesity and hyperinsulinemia/insulin resistance in adults. We measured fasting plasma adiponectin and insulin concentrations and body composition (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry or doubly labeled water) in… (More)
