TNF␣ was the most significant independent predictor of insulin resistance irrespective of body fat mass. A change in plasma leptin was the second best predictor but the inverse association between leptin and insulin sensitivity vanished after adjustment for adiposity. In that study cortisol further contributed to a variance in insulin sensitivity in lean and obese pregnant women. Leptin is an adipocyte-derived hormone that could be important in normal and in particular in diabetic pregnancies. It is supposed to regulate body weight through a negative feedback signal between adipose tissue and the hypothalamic center of satiety causing a decrease in food intake and an increase in energy expenditure and body temperature .
Recent studies provide evidence that in addition to estrogens insulin and glucocorticoids are the most important determinants for leptin synthesis and secretion. As an inverse relationship is found between plasma leptin concentrations and insulin sensitivity in many cross-sectional studies, leptin could modulate insulin sensitivity and promote fatty acid oxidation and/or decrease insulin secretion  also during pregnancy. Of note augmented placental leptin mRNA expression and increased maternal plasma leptin concentrations are in particular found in complicated pregnancies such as in preeclampsia or diabetic women.
