Adiponectin


Maria Duran
 


I have been struggling with this concept, if I understood correctly, adiponectin is a hormone secreted by adipose tissue and it's blood levels are lower in EMS what impairs insulin sensitivity even more.

What I don't understand is, if it is secreted by adipocytes and usually IR horses are fat so hence more adipose tissue, why are adiponectin levels lower? Would not be adipose tissue secreting more?

Can anyone throw some light to this please?

Thank you.
