Adiposopathy: The Disease that Affects Fat Cells

Adiposopathy commonly referred to as “sick fat”, is a disease that many professionals consider to be a cardiovascular disease. Adiposopathy causes an anatomical change to the body’s fat cells which can directly lead to an increased risk of developing any other cardiovascular diseases as well as possibly lead to metabolic syndrome. 

Metabolic syndrome is the term to describe the most common consequences caused by adiposopathy, these consequences can include hypertension, dyslipidemia, and type 2 diabetes. This article will dive into the mentioned diseases caused by Adiposopathy and how you can prevent/treat adiposopathy. 

Common Diseases Caused by Adiposopathy

  • Type 2 Diabetes 

Type 2 diabetes is described as a malfunction in the way the body controls and utilises sugar (glucose) as a fuel. This long-term disorder causes an excess of sugar to circulate in the body. High blood sugar levels can eventually cause cardiovascular, neurological, and immunological system problems.

Although not all patients suffering from type 2 diabetes are overweight, the majority are. A combination of adiposity, genetic predispositions, as well as lifestyle factors leads to an individual developing Adiposopathy which then leads to type 2 diabetes. 

  • Hypertension

Hypertension, in simple terms, is high blood pressure and the leading cause of cardiovascular illnesses, including strokes, heart attacks, heart failure, and aneurysms. Blood pressure control is critical for maintaining health and lowering the risk of certain disorders. While extra body fat certainly raises the risk of hypertension, excess body fat alone does not cause hypertension to occur. It’s usually caused by a combination of different factors, but unhealthy diet habits have been directly linked to hypertension. 

  • Dyslipidemia 

Dyslipidemia is defined as an increase in plasma cholesterol, triglycerides (TGs), or both; or a low amount of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol that leads to atherosclerosis. The causes might be either primary (genetic) or secondary (lifestyle habits and weight).

How to Treat Adiposopathy
