Leptin up if obese: Leptin goes up with obesity. Normally, a high leptin means you are full and you are not hungry. With obesity, the patient gradually becomes resistant to the high leptin and still feels hungry even with a high level of leptin. So, there is no need to see a doctor. Best to go on a careful diet and exercise to lose the weight.
