Adaptation of human adipose tissue to hypocaloric diet

International Journal of Obesity, 05/30/2012

The endocrine function of adipose tissue (AT), which involves cytokine and adipokine production by adipocytes, as well as by cells of stromavascular fraction, is also regulated by dietary intervention. Related inflammatory status of AT is modulated also as a consequence of the changes in recruitment of immune cells, mainly macrophages, in AT. Here, the authors give an overview of metabolic and endocrine modifications in human AT induced by a variety of hypocaloric diets.
