Obesity is increasing in an epidemic manner in most countries and constitutes a public health problem by enhancing the risk for cardiovascular disease and metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes. Owing to the increase in obesity, life expectancy may start to decrease in developed countries for the first time in recent history. The factors determining fat mass in adult humans are not fully understood, but increased lipid storage in already developed fat cells (adipocytes) is thought to be… Expand
Fat cell turnover in humans.
TLDR
This review summarizes what is known about fat cell turnover in humans and the potential clinical implications and suggests that understanding the factors that determine the fat mass is of prime interest and may lead to effective treatments and/or interventions for these disorders. Expand
Adipose cell and lipid turnovers in obesity and insulin resistance

  • 2012
TLDR
The study authors confirmed that adipocyte number in individuals with early onset of obesity is higher than in lean individuals, and demonstrated that 8.4 % of fat cells are renewed annually at all adult ages and levels of body mass index (BMI). Expand
Dynamics of human adipose lipid turnover in health and metabolic disease
TLDR
The data support a mechanism in which adipocyte lipid storage and removal have different roles in health and pathology, and identify adipocytes lipid turnover as a novel target for prevention and treatment of metabolic disease. Expand
Dynamics of Human Adipose Tissue. Regulatory Mechanisms and Consequences for Fat Cells and the Whole Body
TLDR
Adipose hyperplasia is associated with an adverse metabolic profile in large population-based samples, and adipocyte turnover is important for the development of obesity and for the metabolic profile. Expand
Adipocyte biology and obesity-mediated adipose tissue remodeling
TLDR
An overview of white adipocyte biology and obesity-mediated AT remodeling by microbiome changes is intended to serve as an overview of the biology and physiology of adipose tissues, cells specialized in fat storage that all vertebrates possess. Expand
Maintenance of white adipose tissue in man.
TLDR
The focus of this review is human tissue, however in many cases human data are missing and are inferred from animal studies, so reference to animal studies are made where human data is not available. Expand
Modeling Diabetes in the US Adult Population
TLDR
The results of this dissertation support the contention that the BMI may have limited utility for obesity classification and risk stratification, and highlight the heterogeneity of risk across the BMI continuum. Expand
Dynamics of adipose tissue turnover in human metabolic health and disease
TLDR
A brief summary of findings derived from in vitro techniques, as well as an overview of two in vivo methods that are being implemented to assess the turnover of adipose cells and TGs are provided. Expand
Obesity in the Pathophysiology of Diabetes
TLDR
The maintenance of a healthy weight, usually achieved between 18 and 25 years of age, requires a life-long sustained energy equilibrium between energy intake and energy expended, which is affected not only by diet but also age, stage of development, genetic makeup as well as epigenetic, level of nutritional education, and physical and psychosocial interactions. Expand
Waves of Adipose Tissue Growth in the Genetically Obese Zucker Fatty Rat
TLDR
A simple model is proposed for the periodicity, with PPAR signaling driven by a deficit in lipid uptake capacity leading to the periodic recruitment of new adipocytes, and this model predicts that the observed period will be diet-dependent. Expand

TLDR
The subgrouping of obesity according to the cellularity of adipose tissue has given associations with clinical observations such as age at debut of obesity, disturbances of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, and with prognosis for treatment. Expand
Regulation of adipose cell number in man.
TLDR
This review largely focuses on the control of fat cell acquisition and loss and the influence of these processes on adipose tissue mass and regional distribution. Expand
The growth of adipose tissue in children and adolescents. Cross-sectional and longitudinal studies of adipose cell number and size.
TLDR
Obese children display both quantitative and qualitative differences in fat tissue development when compared to nonobese children, indicating that the rate and type of adipose tissue cellular development one encounters in children may play a role in the development of the enlarged fat depots found in obese subjects. Expand
Effect of an energy-reduced dietary regimen in relation to adipose tissue cellularity in obese women.
TLDR
The results suggest that when the fat cell size in different regions of an individual are known, as well as the total fat cell number, the success of an energy-reduced dietary regimen might be approximately predicted both in terms of remaining total body fat and in regional fat depot decrease.

Relationship of childhood obesity to coronary heart disease risk factors in adulthood: the Bogalusa Heart Study.
TLDR
Because normal-weight children who become obese adults have adverse risk factor levels and probably will be at increased risk for adult morbidity, the results emphasize the need for both primary and secondary prevention. Expand
Adipose tissue cellularity in obese school girls before and after dietary treatment.
TLDR
Treatment of childhood obesity may be of importance for the prevention of obesity later in life, according to the results of Mean fat cell size and adipose tissue cellularity studied. Expand
Mechanisms linking obesity to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
TLDR
In obese individuals, adipose tissue releases increased amounts of non-esterified fatty acids, glycerol, hormones, pro-inflammatory cytokines and other factors that are involved in the development of insulin resistance. Expand
Adipose tissue cellularity in human obesity.
All human obesity is characterised by adipocyte hypertrophy and when body weight exceeds 170 per cent of ideal, a maximum cell size of roughly twice normal is achieved. With greater severity,Expand
Long-term prospective and controlled studies demonstrate adipose tissue hypercellularity and relative leptin deficiency in the postobese state.
TLDR
Adipose tissue hyperplasia (too many small fat cells) and low leptin production resulting in relative hypoleptinemia in the fasting (basal) state are common features of the postobese state in women. Expand
Apoptosis of human adipocytes in vitro.
TLDR
It is shown that human adipocytes undergo apoptosis following growth factor deprivation or mild heat injury in vitro, thus demonstrating a cellular mechanism by which normal adipocyte loss could occur in vivo. Expand
