Failure to increase postprandial blood flow in subcutaneous adipose tissue is associated with tissue resistance to adrenergic stimulation.
AIMS: Adequate adipose tissue blood flow (ATBF) is essential for its metabolic and endocrine functions. From a metabolic point of view, sufficient increases in ATBF after meals permits full storage of excess energy into fat, thus protecting other tissues against the toxic effects of fatty acids and glucose spillover. It was previously shown that postprandial increases in ATBF are blunted in obese and insulin-resistant subjects, and that much of the postprandial ATBF response is the result of...Expand abstract
