Relationships of Serum Leptin With Nutrition Status and Insulin Resistance in Non-Diabetic Hemodialysis Patients
Leptin is known as an adipose-derived peptide hormone that has various physiological effects on energy intake and expenditure, glucose homeostasis, the reproductive and circulatory systems, and weight balance. This cross-sectional study included 44 patients with end-stage renal failure on HD for more than 6 months who had not been diagnosed with diabetes mellitus. Insulin resistance was assessed using the homeostasis model assessment method of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR). The serum leptin levels were measured using radioimmunometric assay.
