Type II Diabetes treatment strategies are horribly flawed, causing serious harm to your health. This book explains why, and what you can do about it. Good news for bad health!
There is a simple way to reverse type 2 diabetes. Infertility, PCOS, irregular periods, and insulin resistance are hypothyroid symptoms. A normal TSH does not rule out thyroid dysfunction. Review From the reviews: Nutrition and Health Paperback: It is very well known that obesity is associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, a known risk factor for heart disease.
However, the fact that the cardiovascular complications of diabetes seem to precede the onset of clinical diabetes, suggests that rather than cardiovascular disease being a consequence of diabetes, both conditions may have a common cause, i. Why does the accumulation of body fat increase the risk of cardiovascular disease? The missing link may be a condition called adiposopathy or sick fat. According to the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, obesity is defined as a chronic, relapsing, multi-factorial, neurobehavioral disease, wherein an increase in body fat promotes adipose tissue dysfunction and abnormal fat mass physical forces, resulting in adverse metabolic, biomechanical, and psychosocial adverse consequences 5.

In this case, adipose tissue dysfunction would be synonymous with adiposopathy. So, let us take a closer look at the role of adipose tissue and the consequences of adiposopathy. Vague defined two different body shapes. Android obesity or apple shape refers to the accumulation of fat in the upper body area. The latter is more common among women than men 7.
Fat cells or adipose cells are called adipocytes. Although their main role is to store fat, mostly triglycerides, they have several other important functions. For example, adipose tissue appears to be a major endocrine organ.
Consequently, the term adiposopathy was defined and used to describe abnormal adipose tissue function that may be promoted and exacerbated by fat accumulation adiposity and sedentary lifestyle in genetically susceptible patients Hence, the term sick fat. Adipose cells are called adipocytes. Adipose tissue is made up of adipocytes, white blood cells, and fibroblasts, surrounded by connective tissue, collagen, nerves and blood vessels.
Regulation of energy balance
Adipose cells constitute the majority of adipose tissue volume. In this tissue sample, adipocytes are easily recognized by the large lipid droplets.
Previously, it was believed that we are born with a certain amount of adipocytes and that the production of new cells ceased early in life. However, although the number of fat cells appears to stay relatively constant throughout life even after marked weight loss , indicating that the number of adipocytes is set during childhood and adolescence, the adipocyte number is continuously determined by the balance between the production of new cells and the removal of older cells. Hypertrophy may lead to adipocyte dysfunction that may provoke abnormal endocrine and immune responses and eventually lead to the metabolic abnormalities typical of sick fat.
In obesity, adipocyte hypertrophy and inflammatory responses are closely associated with the development of insulin resistance in adipose tissue. Recent data shows that lipid-overloaded hypertrophic adipocytes are insulin resistant independent of adipocyte inflammation In obesity, adipose tissue exhibits a major inflammatory response with increased production of inflammation-related proteins called adipokines. It has been proposed that hypoxia may underlie this inflammatory response and evidence that adipose tissue is hypoxic in obesity has been obtained in animal models
