Mean adiponectin levels (ng/ml) in 10 normal weight (solid line) versus 13 severely obese (broken line) women. The postprandial response was significantly different between groups (p = 0.040), and averaged over time, the adiponectin level was significantly higher in the normal weight than in the severely obese (p = 0.015). These levels were significantly higher * (p ≤ 0.05) in normal weight women at baseline (p = 0.001), 15 (p = 0.018), 30 (p = 0.021), and 60 (p = 0.040) minutes.
