Hypercortisolaemia increases femoral adipose tissue blood flow but not net fatty acid release in vivo

Manolopoulos Konstantinos , Bujalska Iwona , Luzio Steve , Arlt Wiebke , Tomlinson Jeremy

Hypercortisolaemia (CushingÂ’s Syndrome) is characterised by abdominal fat accumulation and gluteofemoral fat loss. The mechanisms underpinning this fat mass redistribution are unknown. Adipose tissue blood flow (ATBF) and net fatty acid release rate (lipolysis) are important determinants of depot-specific fat mass. We hypothesized that hypercortisolaemia may result in increased femoral ATBF and lipolysis promoting gluteofemoral fat mass loss. We recruited nine healthy mal...

Introduction: Resistant starch (RS) has beneficial effects on postprandial glucose metabolism in both animals and adults. Hitherto, it has not been studied in children. The long-term effects of RS in reducing obesity and improving metabolic profiles need to be investigated in children. Objectives: Our objective was to compare serial plasma glucose, insulin, gut hormone profiles and satiety scores in obese children after meals, containing increasing amoun...
