Adiponectin is hormone that is released by the fat cells. It helps to improve tissue inflammation and responsiveness to insulin. Insulin is made by beta cells of the pancreas. Adiponectin is released in the blood after a rise in blood glucose level to help lower it to the normal levels. Insulin performs this task by stimulating cells to ‘take in’ glucose and other nutrients.

Adiponectin raises insulin sensitivity. It increases the breakdown of fatty acids and decreases the production of glucose by the liver. Individuals with obesity, type II diabetes, and other metabolic disorders often have low adiponectin levels in blood The Adiponectin Blood Test determines the levels of adiponectin in blood.
