  • subcutaneous fat
  • Visceral fat , also known as organ fat or intra-abdominal fat , is located inside the peritoneal cavity , packed in between internal organs and torso, as opposed to subcutaneous fat , which is found underneath the skin , and intramuscular fat , which is found interspersed in skeletal muscle . (wikipedia.org)
  • Intra-abdominal fat (IAF) and subcutaneous fat (SQF) were measured in normal (n=4) and heart disease (n=4) dogs at the levels of lumbar 4 and 5, using computed tomography. (vin.com)
  • visceral obesity
  • Nevertheless, a comparison of insulin sensitivity and concomitant characterization of total and visceral obesity and mid-thigh low-density lean tissue (a marker of intra-muscular fat) in women taking estrogen, taking estrogen plus progesterone, and not taking hormone therapy has not been conducted.

  • diseases
  • Abdominal obesity has been linked to Alzheimer's disease as well as other metabolic and vascular diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • Studies link obesity to the accumulation of abdominal fat and fat in the liver, making non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) one of the most prevalent diseases of the liver. (redorbit.com)
  • Congress organizers hope to raise awareness of abdominal obesity as a new risk factor that, along with traditional risk factors, can be modified to reduce the risk of serious diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and stroke. (medindia.net)
  • Nutritionists, dieticians and healthcare providers seeking to address the abdominal obesity epidemic will find this book to be a valuable resource in their long-term goal of preventing chronic diseases, especially heart, vascular and diabetic diseases. (researchandmarkets.com)
  • The rising incidence of chronic diseases associated with obesity does not spare developing countries (DCs) even low-income ones [ 5 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • The prohibitive cost of treatment of obesity-related diseases, both for the patient and the health system, mainly in developing countries, requires that increased attention be paid to CMR assessment. (hindawi.com)
  • consequences
  • These findings suggest the need for lifestyle and dietary change education programs among this new and vulnerable group to reduce the prevalence of excess body weight and abdominal obesity and their health consequences. (mdpi.com)
  • Diabetes
  • Abdominal obesity increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes and high blood cholesterol and interferes with the body's ability to use insulin effectively, a condition known as insulin resistance . (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • Objective We wanted to determine whether obesity, abdominal fat distribution, and physical inactivity act similarly and independently as risk factors for noninsulin- dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) in Hindu and Muslim Asian Indians, African-origin Creoles, and Chinese Mauritians. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Because these problems may be related to treatment with total body irradiation and a stem cell transplant, the investigators will compare the rates of obesity, cholesterol problems, and diabetes between women who were treated with total body irradiation and a stem cell transplant and women who were not. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • accumulation
  • The investigators will assess arterial wall thickness, plaque morphology, and atherosclerotic inflammation, and the investigators will determine associations between these variables and regional fat accumulation, with particular attention to abdominal fat. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • epidemic
  • With an aging population and burgeoning obesity rates among children, the stage is being set for an epidemic of cardiometabolic disease among future generations," said Dr. Libby. (medindia.net)
  • baseline
  • The purpose of our study was to assess changes in CMR factors in sub-Saharan Africans according to baseline obesity status and taking account of diet and lifestyle. (hindawi.com)
  • anthropometric
  • We hypothesized that obesity as currently defined by standard anthropometric criteria is weakly associated with unfavourable changes of other CMR factors. (hindawi.com)
  • arterial
  • In addition, by using a medication called growth hormone releasing hormone, which is a strategy to reduce abdominal fat, the investigators will test the hypothesis that abdominal fat contributes uniquely to increased arterial inflammation. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In that part of the study, the investigators will test the effects of a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) analogue to reduce abdominal fat and, consequently, reduce arterial inflammation. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The investigators hypothesize that abdominal fat reduction, independent of changes in growth hormone, will reduce arterial inflammation and arterial wall thickness. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Liver
  • Once dyslipidemia becomes a severe problem, an individual's abdominal cavity would generate elevated free fatty acid flux to the liver. (wikipedia.org)
  • Researchers from The Netherlands found that snacking on high-fat and high-sugar foods was independently associated with abdominal fat and fatty liver (hepatic steatosis). (redorbit.com)
  • study
  • Our study examines if high meal frequency, with snacking, compared to large meal consumption contributes to increased intrahepatic and abdominal fat. (redorbit.com)
