AIM The enlargement of visceral adipose tissue (VAT) is considered to mediate the close relationship between obesity and insulin resistance. We aimed to determine whether a stronger association of VAT compared to subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) with insulin resistance could be confirmed and generalized in non-diabetic Japanese men and women. METHODS Participants were 912 non-diabetic Japanese (636 men and 276 women, mean age 52.4±7.0 years, and mean BMI 24.9±3.1 kg/m(2)). VAT and SAT were… CONTINUE READING
