Lifestyle-Intervention-Induced Reduction of Abdominal Fat Is Reflected by a Decreased Circulating Glycerol Level and an Increased HDL Diameter

Today Molecular Nutrition and Food Research published the work of Marian Beekman et al showing that the amount of abdominal fat is correlated with metabolic biomarkers in the blood.

Marian Beekman et al. showed that the amount of abdominal fat is correlated with metabolic biomarkers in the blood: large abdominal fat mass associates with high circulating concentrations of glycerol and a small diameter of HDL particles, independent of body mass index. When abdominal fat mass is reduced by a lifestyle intervention, circulating glycerol level is decreased and HDL diameter is increased, independent of general weight loss. Their work has been published in Molecular Nutrition and Food Research in April 2020.
