Adipose tissue distribution is an important predictor of obesity-associated morbidity and mortality. A central ('male') fat distribution is associated with increases in intra-abdominal adipose tissue which might be of metabolic importance. Although many recent studies have pointed out significant regional differences in the size and metabolism of subcutaneous fat cells intra-abdominal depots have not been systematically examined. We compared fat cell sizes (FCS) and lipoprotein lipase activity… CONTINUE READING
