In order to study the relationships of body fat distribution, insulin sensitivity and cardiovascular risk factors in lean, healthy non-diabetic Thai men and women, 32 healthy, non-diabetic subjects, 16 men and 16 women, with respective mean age 28.4+/-6.6 (S.D.) and 32.8+/-8.9 years, mean BMI 21.0+/-2.8 and 21.2+/-3.7 kg/m(2), were measured for total body fat and abdominal fat by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), anthropometry and insulin sensitivity by euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp… CONTINUE READING
