Background:Themetabolicsyndromeisadisorderthat includes dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, and hypertension and is associated with an increased risk of diabetes andcardiovasculardisease.Wedeterminedwhetherpatterns of regional fat deposition are associated with metabolic syndrome in older adults. Methods: A cross-sectional study was performed that included a random, population-based, volunteer sample of Medicare-eligible adults within the general communities of Pittsburgh, Pa, and Memphis, Tenn. The subjects consisted of 3035 men and women aged 70 to 79 years, of whom 41.7% were black. Metabolic syndrome was defined by Adult Treatment Panel III criteria, including serum triglyceride level, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level, glucose level, blood pressure, and waist circumference. Visceral, subcutaneous abdominal, intermuscular, and subcutaneous thigh adipose tissue was measured by computed tomography. Results:Visceral adipose tissue was associated with the metabolic syndrome in men who were of normal weight (odds ratio, 95% confidence interval: 2.1, 1.6-2.9), overweight (1.8, 1.5-2.1), and obese (1.2, 1.0-1.5), and in women who were of normal weight (3.3, 2.4-4.6), overweight (2.4, 2.0-3.0), and obese (1.7, 1.4-2.1), adjustingforrace.Subcutaneousabdominaladiposetissuewas associated with the metabolic syndrome only in normalweight men (1.3, 1.1-1.7). Intermuscular adipose tissue was associated with the metabolic syndrome in normalweight (2.3, 1.6-3.5) and overweight (1.2, 1.1-1.4) men. In contrast, subcutaneous thigh adipose tissue was inversely associated with the metabolic syndrome in obese men (0.9, 0.8-1.0) and women (0.9, 0.9-1.0). Conclusion: In addition to general obesity, the distribution of body fat is independently associated with the metabolic syndrome in older men and women, particularly among those of normal body weight.

Abstract Insulin resistance is associated with a plethora of chronic illnesses, including Type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, clotting dysfunction, and colon cancer. The relationship between obesity and insulin resistance is well established, and an increase in obesity in Western countries is implicated in increased incidence of diabetes and other diseases. Central, or visceral, adiposity has been part...

All the world loves to mock obese Americans, but weightier issues lurk in Asia, where diabetes and heart disease run rampant. The first hurdle may be a Western measure that is blind to the expanding fat in Asians' deceptively thin bodies.

The aim of this study was to determine whether trunk fat mass, measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), is predictive of insulin resistance and dyslipidemia, independently of arm and leg fat mass, in postmenopausal women. Total and regional body composition was measured by DEXA in 166 healthy, postmenopausal women (66 ± 4 yr). Four primary markers of insulin resistance and dyslipidemia...

Studies have shown that insulin resistance increases with age, independent of changes in total adiposity. However, there is growing evidence that the development of insulin resistance may be more closely related to abdominal adiposity. To evaluate the independent effects of aging and regional and total adiposity on insulin resistance, we performed hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamps on 17 young (21...

The purpose of this study was to determine whether human adipocytes from different depots of obese subjects produce interleukin-6 (IL-6) and whether IL-6 release is regulated by glucocorticoids. Fragments of omental and abdominal sc adipose tissue released immunodetectable IL-6 into the medium during acute incubations. Omental adipose tissue released 2–3 times more IL-6 than did sc adipose tissue....

ABSTRACTThe explanation for reduced mortality among older persons with overweight or class I obesity compared to those of desirable weight remains unclear. Our objective was to investigate the joint effects of body mass index (BMI) and metabolic health status on all-cause mortality in a cohort of advanced age. Adults aged 74 ± 4.7 (mean ± SD) years at baseline (n = 4551) were categorized according...
