|Author (year)||Study population||Main findings|
|Doneda et al., 2015 ||15 adult, ERT-treated GD1 patients||No differences in median levels of ghrelin, leptin and adiponectin between patients and controls.|
Lower adiponectin concentrations in patients with splenomegaly vs. subject without splenomegaly.
Inverse correlation between both ghrelin and
adiponectin levels and BMI, waist circumference
and TG. Positive correlation between both ghrelin and
adiponectin levels and HDL-c.
Inverse correlation between leptin and LDL-c and a direct correlation between leptin and BMI, waist circumference, enzyme dosage, TG, insulin, and HOMA-IR.
|Langeveld et al., 2007 ||28 adult GD1 patients (26 on ERT, 2 on SRT), assessed before and after several years of therapy||Significantly lower serum adiponectin concentrations in untreated patients compared with healthy BMI-matched controls.|
Post-ERT adiponectin levels increased significantly, but remained lower vs. those of BMI-matched controls
No correlation between adiponectin level and BMI in untreated GD1 patients
