the Risk of atherosclerosis depends on the location of fat deposition in the body

the Risk of atherosclerosis depends on the location of fat deposition in the bodyAmong women older than 60 years of excess fat deposition in the abdominal area increases the risk of atherosclerosis in a greater degree than the General or peripheral obesity. More details about this can be found in the release Circulation for April 1. "A lot depends on the nature of the distribution of adipose tissue", says the President of the American heart Association, Dr. Robert Bonow. As recalled by Dr. Laszlo B. Tanko and his colleagues (Center for Clinical and basic Research, Ballerup, Denmark), has already been proven that people of middle age, abdominal obesity increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes type 2 diabetes and stroke. Danish scientists decided to compare the importance of the Central and peripheral obesity as risk factors of atherosclerosis. They examined 1356 women 60-85 years, estimating the fat content in the body and the degree of aortic calcification (using lateral radiographs). It turned out that when most severe calcification of the walls of the aorta abdominal obesity is also most pronounced. Interestingly, aortic calcification rarely observed in women with peripheral obesity. "This study demonstrates that older women localization of excess fat is more important in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis than itself obesity", the authors write. "The main and rather unexpected conclusion - perhaps peripheral obesity "offset" the negative effects of visceral fat in adipose tissue". Compared with participants without cardiac pathology, abdominal obesity is more prevalent in women with myocardial infarction in anamnesis, regardless of the fat deposits in other areas of the body.
