Combination of Fat Distribution and ADPN Levels Affect Diabetes Risk

Nov. 12 - Lake Country Now reports an individual’s distribution of fat and corresponding levels of adiponectin (ADPN), a protein hormone associated with regulating metabolic processes, have been found to affect diabetes and metabolic syndrome risk. A team of metabolic researchers at MCW investigated ADPN levels in both obese and non-obese participants with upper body and lower body fat concentrations. The research findings are published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. Lake Country Now
