Adiposity and human regional body temperature.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Human obesity is associated with increased heat production; however, subcutaneous adipose tissue provides an insulating layer that impedes heat loss. To maintain normothermia, therefore, obese individuals must increase their heat dissipation. OBJECTIVE The objective was to test the hypothesis that temperature in a heat-dissipating region of the… (More)
