Leptin is a hormone made by fat cells. His job is to control appetite and hunger. Leptin signals the brain to let you know when the stomach feels full.
In a part of the brain called the hypothalamus, there are receptors or special substances that receive signals from the hormone leptin, which will be active if the level of leptin in the body is too high.
The hormone leptin will increase if you are full and will then give signals to the receptors. Special receptors in the hypothalamus will receive a message that your stomach is full and reduces hunger and appetite.
