Physiol. 3 l(3) : 345-347. 1971 .-Free fatty acid (FFA) levels were measured at 15-set intervals in 14 children, including 11 with obesity. The FFA level was found to fluctuate over a wide range (165-680 pEq/liter) about the mean. The period of oscillation was of the order of 2 min. Changes in glycerol level approximately paralleled those of FFA. It is suggested that this oscillation in FFA values represents a change in FFA release from adipose stores. Some differences between obese and nonobese children were noted. [I300 childhood obesity; glycerol energy source in the fasting in blood is markedly insuch stimuli as exercise, emotional stress, insulin, and glucose (2, 6, 7, 9). While obtaining base-line free fatty acid (FFA) values in fasting obese children we had found that marked fluctuations occurred over short periods of time. This led us to investigate the
