Özet

Background: Serum levels of adipocytokines such as leptin and adiponectin are significantly elevated in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). The effect of such adipocytokines on malnutrition in the CRF population has been of substantial interest. We sought to determine the relationship between plasma leptin and adiponectin levels and malnutrition-inflammation status in end-stage renal disease patients.
