Gut Adipose Interaction

Gut hormones have been shown to interact with long-term signals from adipose tissue. GLP-1 is known to improving insulin sensitivity and, thereby, glycemic control. In rodents, peripheral administration of PYY3-36 for 4 wk resulted in improved glycemic control; reduce body weight and visceral fat (33). Recently, Wynne et al. (77) showed a significant reduction in leptin and an increment in adiponectin, markers of adiposity, associated with reduced body weight in 14 patients who had subcutaneous OXM injections for 4 wk.
