It has been well documented that adipocytes are actually endocrine organs that secrete a large number of proteins that have a variety of functions and act in an autocrine, paracrine, or endocrine fashion to control various metabolic functions.
Adipokines include powerful inflammatory mediators that can create and perpetuate metabolic abnormalities that lead to obesity.
This presentation will focus on how hormones secreted by adipocytes interact and influence with other endocrine components leading to obesity.
These endocrine components will include sex hormones and immune cells. Leptin, adiponectin and various cytokines such as interleukin 6, interleukin 8 and tumor necrosis factor alpha will be discussed.
*Ultimately, we will attempt to answer the question “Does obesity result from endocrine disorders or does obesity create or at least perpetuate them?”
*Various treatment methods for endocrine obesity will be discussed.
