Leptin is derived from the Greek word 'leptos' meaning thin. Leptin is one
of the key hormones involved in hunger, metabolism, and how fats and
carbohydrates get stored and utilized. Leptin tells your hypothalamus that
you have eaten enough and need to start burning fat. The hypothalamus is
the control center of the brain for fullness and fat storage. The rate of
production of leptin directly correlates with weight loss or weight gain.
Women have significantly higher circulating leptin than men.

The person who experiences this perpetual state of exhaustion may be suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and because there are no definitive
tests for diagnosis, over half a million people in America may have this condition and not know it.
