Adiponectin is an adipokine exclusively expressed in adipose tissues with potent anti-diabetic, anti-atherogenic and anti-inflammatory functions.
In humans, decreased serum adiponectin levels are associated with increased body mass index (BMI), decreased insulin sensitivity, less favourable plasma lipid profiles, increased inflammation and increased risk for the development of type 2 diabetes, hypertension and coronary heart diseases.
