OBJECTIVE Androgens and oestrogens have opposing effects on some adipocyte functions. Thus, the androgen to oestrogen balance may be as important as the individual hormones in determining the biological interaction between endogenous sex hormones and adipocyte-derived factors such as adiponectin and leptin. We tested this hypothesis by evaluating the sex-specific, cross-sectional association of sex hormones and androgen to oestrogen ratios with serum adiponectin and leptin in older men and… CONTINUE READING
