Differential Responses of Visceral and Subcutaneous Fat Depots to Nutrients
Wow. What an insightful approach. Basically, visceral (bad) and subcutaneous fat have a different response in the level of release of hormones after a glucose load. The hormones derived from adipose tissue (resistin, leptin, adinopectin, PAI-1) generally contribute to insulin resistance and obesity. More is released by visceral fat after feeding.
So the authors have planted a seed–might checking blood levels in non-fasting states give us more insight into the balance of visceral vs subcutaneous fat? Interesting, huh?
