The associations between abdominal visceral fat and the plasma hemostatic system were examined in 38-year-old healthy men (n=52) with a wide range of fatness and fat distribution. Plasma hemostatic factors and metabolic parameters, including glucose tolerance, were measured, and body fatness and adipose tissue distribution were assessed by using computed tomography. The men with more visceral fat (ie, higher than the median value [n=26]) had a less favorable metabolic profile than the men with… CONTINUE READING
