Subcutaneous adipose tissue metabolism at menopause: importance of body fatness and regional fat distribution.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to examine the contribution of menopause per se on sc adipose tissue (AT) metabolism in 16 women classified on the basis of their menopausal status: 8 postmenopausal (mean +/- SD age, 57 +/- 6 yr) vs. 8 premenopausal individuals (37 +/- 5 yr).
