The link between abdominal obesity, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease

The link between abdominal obesity, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease Aim The prevalence of metabolic syndrome has increased dramatically in recent years, and the cluster of metabolic abnormalities it encompasses results in increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The role of abdominal (visceral) obesity and the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms central to this association have been the subject of intensive research in recent times. The aim of this review is to correlate data in this area, highlighting the central role of excess visceral fat and its secreted adipokines, and to review existing and emerging therapies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases Elsevier

Abstract

Aim The prevalence of metabolic syndrome has increased dramatically in recent years, and the cluster of metabolic abnormalities it encompasses results in increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The role of abdominal (visceral) obesity and the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms central to this association have been the subject of intensive research in recent times. The aim of this review is to correlate data in this area, highlighting the central role of excess visceral fat and its secreted adipokines, and to review existing and emerging therapies.
