P-leptin (a) and p-adiponectin (b) levels before and after 36 h fasting in LBW and NBW subjects. N = 21 LBW, 18 NBW. Data are means ± SEM. p-leptin levels were significantly higher among LBW subjects after 12 h of fasting (overnight fast) (p = 0.05). A threefold decrease of p-leptin levels (p < 0.0001) was observed after fasting, with LBW subjects still characterized with non-significant higher p-leptin compared to the NBW subjects. p-leptin levels were also significantly different regarding the slope of the curve between the two groups (p = 0.05)
