Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Obesity is associated with increase in mortality and morbidity due to renal dysfunction. Adipocyte cells are able to secrete different protein named adipokines. In obese subjects, the production and secretion of adipokines alter and these may affect renal homeostasis. More study in the effect of adipokines in progression of chronic kidney disease can help us to understand the pathophysiology and better management of kidney disease in obese patients.
