SUMMARY AIM To compare regional lipid deposition and insulin sensitivity after differing weight loss strategies: very low calorie diet (VLCD) and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB). METHOD Thirty-nine obese women underwent anthropometry, proton magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy for assessment of liver fat (LFAT) and MR imaging for visceral (VAT) and subcutaneous abdominal fat volume (SAT) determination. Fasting blood was taken for insulin, glucose and free fatty acid (FFA… CONTINUE READING
