The adiponectin blood test determines the levels of adiponectin in blood. It is used to diagnose metabolic disorders such as Type 2 diabetes. Adiponectin is a hormone that is released from fat cells and will help to control the inflammation of tissue. The hormone will also boost insulin sensitivity and increases the breakdown of fatty acid in the liver. This process will, in turn, decrease the manufacturing of glucose by the liver. A low result might suggest Type 2 diabetes mellitus or metabolic syndrome. 

Symptoms that warrant ordering the adiponectin test may include: 

  • increased thirst
  • blurry vision
  • fatigue
  • history of cardiovascular disease
  • rapid weight loss
  • frequent urination
  • obesity
  • tingling or numbing in extremities
