Serum levels of adipokines among Yusho patients and normal controls were measured. Compared with normal controls, serum levels of leptin were significantly lower, while those of RBP4 were significantly higher in Yusho patients. Dioxins may impair production of adipokines from adipose tissue, which would increase the risk to develop lifestyle-related diseases, such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension.
