Leptin is an adipocyte-derived hormone that is essential for normal body weight regulation. Leptin production is under neuroendocrine control so that serum concentrations vary directly with the amount of triglycerides stored in adipose tissue depots.
No special preparation is needed for Leptin. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Leptin. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
