Emerging evidence suggests that leptin, an adipocyte-derived hormone, may have independent direct effects on both insulin secretion and action, in addition to its well documented effects on appetite and energy expenditure. The aim of this study was to evaluate fasting serum leptin concentration and its association to insulin resistance in women with gestat...
