Özet

Background/aim: Leptin is a hormone that is known to be related to weight gain and obesity. The soluble leptin receptor has been found in plasma as an important determinant of leptin sensitivity. In this study, our goal was to investigate the association between leptin levels and leptin receptor polymorphisms in a Turkish population.
