It is a well-known fact that obesity is one of the leading causes of diabetes. The fat tissues in the body secrete cytokines known as adipokines. There are two types of adipokines, pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory. The pro-inflammatory adipokines are called leptin and can lead to chronic inflammation. Leptin is responsible for controlling body weight. People with a high body mass index and increased insulin resistance had more elevated amounts of leptin in their bodies. The anti-inflammatory adipokines are called adiponectin. Adiponectin has antidiabetic properties and the opposite effect of leptin on the human body. While leptin seems to relate to body fat directly, adiponectin has an inverse association with body fat. When a patient's body fat increases, adiponectin decreases.  


Where does intermittent fasting come into play? Research shows that people who engage in intermittent fasting have increased adiponectin levels and decreased leptin levels in the body, which can help those struggling with insulin resistance....
