Abstract

A dipose tissue actively participates in regulation of food intake, energy expenditure, fuel metabolism, and a variety of other physiologic processes through its endocrine, paracrine, and autocrine secretory products (Table 4). Abnormal synthesis of these secretory products may be related to the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and its complications in patients who have adipose tissue disorders, such as obesity and lipodystrophies.
