Featured article: Higher adiponectin concentrations are associated with reduced metabolic syndrome risk independently of weight status in Brazilian adolescents

Higher adiponectin concentrations were independently and inverse associated with MetS risk in Brazilian adolescents, even after adjusting for BMI. These results were similar in normal weight and overweight/obese adolescents, suggesting that adiponectin may play a role in early development of MetS.
