Subcutaneous fat cell volume influenced insulin sensitivity more than fat mass

August 21, 2014

Decreases in the volume of subcutaneous fat cells following bariatric surgery in women with obesity improved insulin sensitivity more than reductions in fat mass, according to research published in Diabetes Care.

Changes in the relationship between adipocyte size and fat mass could therefore improve insulin sensitivity after weight loss, and reducing the size of fat cells might constitute a target, according to the researchers from Sweden.
