Fatty tissue derived adipocytokines regulate appetite, but also impair systemic metabolic homeostasis and make the patients prone to inflammatory related disorders. We examined whether weight loss in patients after implementation of a gastric balloon is reflected in the concentration of leptin and adiponectin in blood. The study group included 18 obese patients (BMI >39.9, mean age 39.5±12.1 years, 12 men, 6 women), undergoing implementation of a gastric balloon. The control group consisted of 18 healthy volunteers. The adiponectin and leptin concentrations in the sera as well as the calculated % body fat and indicators: BMI, WHR, VAI, BAI, WHtR were determined prior to implementation and after the balloon removal. Afterwards, further parameters were calculated: % excessive weight loss, % weight loss. All the parameters in the tested group as well as leptin concentration were noticeably upregulated and adiponectin concentration was significantly lower compared to controls. After the treatment we observed the amelioration of the anthropometric parameters with no significant changes in the adiponectin level. The leptin concentration both in the whole group and in men’s group correlated positively with chosen parameters reduction. Lack of the adiponectin upregulation appropriate to the anthropometric changes after the treatment suggests no long-lasting benefit to the obese patients’ metabolism.
