Background: The aim was to examine the relationship of fat distributions with adipokines concentrations in HIV-infected patients. Methods: This was a cross-sectional analysis of 36 HIV (free of lipodystrophy) infected patients. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry was used. Results: In the multivariate analysis, basal adiponectin concentration was a dependent variable, whereas waist to hip ratio and abdominal fat mass were independent predictors in the model (F = 5.1; P < 0.05). Adiponectin concentration decreases by 5.541.2 μg/ml (CI 95%: 8,071.9-3,029.1) for each unit of waist to hip ratio and 561.9 ng/ml (CI 95%: 918.2-213.4) for each kilogram of fat mass of abdominal area. In the multivariate analysis, basal leptin concentration was a dependent variable, whereas waist circumference remained an independent predictor in the model (F = 6.3; P < 0.05), with a direct correlation. Leptin concentration increases by 0.067 ng/ml (CI 95%: 0.001-0.12) for each centimeter of waist circumference. Conclusions: Leptin and adiponectin are related with adiposity in HIV-infected patients. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Source
