Net endogenous acid production and circulating leptin are associated with potentially bioactive free glucocorticoids in healthy lean women

Maser-Gluth Christiane , Dimitriou Triantifillia , Remer Thomas

Recent evidence suggests that endogenous glucocorticoids (GC) may be suppressed by adipocyte-derived leptin and elevated by dietary acidity. Therefore we examined whether these factors might be predictors of potentially bioactive free glucocorticoids independently of adrenocortical activity.Body composition, plasma cortisol, plasma leptin, 24-h urinary excretion rates of net acid (NAE) reflecting daily diet-dependent acid load, total nitrogen, urinary fr...
