Abstract

Objectives: Analyze the difference of salivary leptin in between healthy children with gingivitis and hemodialysis (HD) children with gingivitis. Methods: A total of 20 children, ages 11–16-year-old with gingivitis, were chosen as subjects; 10 were on HD and 10 were healthy children. The level of salivary leptin was measured using the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method. Results: The results showed a significant difference of salivary leptin levels between the children on HD (61,300 ± 4151 pg/ml) and the healthy children (57,200 ± 3173 pg/ml). Conclusions: There is a significant difference in the salivary leptin levels in children on HD with gingivitis and healthy children with gingivitis.
