Although adipose tissue serves a crucial function in energy storage, excess adipose tissue--that is, obesity--is often associated with diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A common thread in the weave of complications is increased plasma concentrations of fatty acids. In the present review, we have focused on two specific points that relate to obesity: (i) What are the metabolic consequences of increased free fatty acid concentrations? and (ii) What are the physiological factors that are… CONTINUE READING
