Beige Fat, Energy, and the Natriuretic Peptide SystemDXA

Good Fat vs. Bad Fat: Can certain fat profiles be healthy?

Study Overview: Obese individuals experience an increased risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Evidence from genetic studies indicate that the natriuretic peptide (NP) system may protect against these diseases. NP levels differ by obesity status and race has not been established in humans. Thus, the investigators propose a study in which will quantify adipose tissue gene expression and energy expenditure in states of NP deficiency in humans.
