Background: Low plasma adiponectin concentrations are associated with diabetes mellitus. Resuts from animal studies suggest that adiponectin plays an important role in regulating insulin action. Leptin levels found to be low in patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). The recent studies showed that insulin replacement during DKA increased leptin concentrations. In our study, we aimed to determine the effect of insulin replacement on serum leptin and adiponectin concentration...
