22 The relationship between adiponectin to leptin ratio, metabolic dysfunction, and diet in the pediatric obeseAdipokines, including adiponectin and leptin, are secreted by adipose tissue. With an increase in fat mass, concentrations of adiponectin decrease and leptin increase, altering the adiponectin/leptin (A/L) ratio. A/L ratio is associated with metabolic dysfunction, as are multiple diet factors includ...Adiponectin; Breakfast; Breastfeeding; Leptin; Nutrition; Obesity2013-08
