Serum brain-derived neurotrophic factor level is increased and associated with obesity in newly diagnosed female patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus


, : Serum brain-derived neurotrophic factor level is increased and associated with obesity in newly diagnosed female patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Metabolism: Clinical and Experimental 55(7): 852-857

Previous studies have demonstrated that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) played a role in the eating behaviour and glucose and lipid metabolism. In this study, we measured the serum BDNF levels in newly diagnosed female patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (n=24, aged 34-59 years) and female subjects with normal glucose tolerance (n=7, aged 34-56 years) from Japan.
