. Determinants of serum leptin levels in healthy postmenopausal women. J Endocrinol Invest. 2003;26:1225-30 pubmed
..Neither endogenous estradiol, nor endogenous testosterone are associated with leptin levels. Further studies are needed to elucidate the role of leptin in determining body weight and composition in postmenopausal women. ..
