Alterations in the mobilization and oxidation of fat may partially account for age-related alterations in body composition. To investigate age-related alterations in fat metabolism, we compared basal rate of appearance of free fatty acids (FFAapp) and total body fat oxidation as measured by infusions of [14C] palmitate and indirect calorimetry, respectively… CONTINUE READING
