In brief: Men1-5ng/wmen7-13ng

]in healthy individuals, baseline leptin levels are between 1-5 ng/dl in men and 7-13 ng/dl in women.
Human leptin is a protein of 167 amino acids. It is manufactured primarily in the adipocytes of white adipose tissue, and the level of circulating leptin is directly proportional to the total amount of fat in the body.
