Plasma Adiponectin Level and Sleep Structures in Children With Prader-Willi Syndrome
Context: Adiponectin is an adipose tissue-derived hormone with an insulin sensitizing effect, and has been related to obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. In addition, children with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness and the abnormality of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.
Objective: To determine if the sleep stages are related to the plasma levels of adiponectin, resistin, and RBP4 (retinol binding protein-4), and whether these relationships are influenced by age, obesity and insulin resistance.
