Özet

Objective: Physiology of gastrointestinal system including its hormones is in strong interaction with the brain. During Ramadan, "intention" to fast may act on this physiology. We aimed to find out if there was a difference between the effects of Ramadan fasting and non-Ramadan fasting on serum levels of some gastrointestinal hormones i.e.; leptin, adiponectin and ghrelin.
