Recent studies indicate that abdominal fat accumulation is related to impaired endothelial function in young healthy volunteers. The aim of this study was to determine the acute effect of gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor on brachial flow-mediated vasodilatation and hemodynamic parameters in young obese women. The study population was composed of 42 female obese patients (mean age 29 +/- 4 years, age range between 18 and 34 years). Flow-mediated endothelial-dependent vasodilatation was assessed… CONTINUE READING
