Some recently discovered molecules produced by adipose tissue are involved in obesity complications, the
adipokines. We aimed to determine changes in plasma adiponectin and leptin concentrations, and insulin resistance, after a
4-weeks program of rehabilitation.
Research methods and Procedures:
Clinical (BMI, waist circumference, exercise test with VO
max measurement) and
biological evaluation (plasma adiponectin, leptin and insulin concentration, and HOMA score) before and after rehabilitation on
111 patients with abdominal obesity admitted for a 4-weeks program of rehabilitation because of chronic pain.
Plasma leptin, adiponectin and insulin concentration (p<0.0001) and HOMA score (p=0.0002) had decreased
significantly at the end of the 4 weeks. BMI and waist circumference decreased significantly (p=0.0001). Patients with insulin
resistance had a lower improvement of their aerobic condition at the end of the 4 weeks (p<0.002).
4-weeks rehabilitation program decreases plasma leptin concentration, which is a cardiovascular risk marker, and
improves insulin sensitivity, regardless of weight variations. Patients with insulin resistance have a worse aerobic recovery than
