ABSTRACT
Objective: Obesity is an important risk factor of atherosclerosis and its prevalence in humans is increasing. Recent studies suggest that the leptin and adiponectin play important roles in obesity, and they are associated with complications of obesity. However, the mechanism of effects has not been outstandingly established. In this study, we studied leptin and adiponectin levels according to body mass index (BMI) and their relationship with oxidative parameters.Methods: A total of 87 healthy individuals with BMI >35 kg/m2 (n=29, Group 1), BMI=25-35 kg/m2 (n=29, Group 2) and BMI
