In brief: No

High leptin levels signify leptin insensitivity - becomes inflammatory marker. Instead if you have diabetes taking chromium supplements 6000mcg per day -as 2000mcg three times a day helps with weight loss fish rich food helps body respond to leptin again.

In brief: Appears so

Type 1 diabetes treatment trial involving leptin, which is naturally produced by fat cells and involved in body-weight regulation.
Recently ut southwestern researchers will be using metreleptin, a slightly modified form of the hormone that has been well-tolerated in other clinical trials.In rodents, it eliminated the wide swings in glucose that occur with Insulin alone. I hope this helps!
