South Asians have a disproportionately high risk of developing abdominal obesity, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Brown adipose tissue (BAT) has been identified as a possible target to fight obesity and protect against metabolic disturbance. We explored whether lower BAT activity in South Asians compared with Europids may contribute to the high risk of metabolic disturbance. We studied 20 healthy men (ten Europids/ten South Asians, BMI 19–25 kg/m2, age 18–32 years). Following 2 h of… CONTINUE READING
