In reply to Gürdoğan and Altay


We would like to thank you for this letter that gives us an opportunity to further comment on the results of our study (1). In the article, we emphasized the importance of the adipokine profile, as a whole and not a single biomarker, as the main conclusion of our research. In view of the present data, the leptin to adiponectin ratio is a strong and affordable candidate, but we cannot disregard the potential of the large number of adipokines secreted by unhealthy adipocytes to be better markers. Moreover, we are aware that gender differences have been reported with respect to adipokine secretion; therefore, the correlations that we reported were checked for gender influence. The correlation was maintained, regardless of gender.
