, there are no studies that have reported on HPA-axis activity across pubertal development. HPA-axis activity is determined by the net effect of cortisol production and metabolism. Cortisol is metabolized by various enzymes ( Fig. 1 ). The A

Introduction White adipose tissue (WAT) is a metabolically active tissue that modifies systemic metabolism significantly by regulating the storage and release of lipids. Free fatty acids serve as a major fuel source during times of energy
