In which organs are Leptin and Ghrelin produced?
•Ghrelin is produced by P/D1 cells lining the fundus of the human stomach that stimulate appetite.
•Ghrelin levels increase before meals and decrease after meals.
•It is considered the counterpart of the hormone leptin, produced by adipose tissue (fat), which induces satiation when present at higher levels.
