Diabetes and Fat Tissues

For so many years, it has been believed that the fat tissues are passive parts of the body. They were thought to simply serve as storage for energy.

However, scientists have noted recently that the fat tissues are actually actively performing bodily functions. They behave like an organ, producing compounds that can affect the functions of other organs, such as responding to insulin and absorption of glucose. They also release certain chemicals that change the body’s regulation of metabolism and energy.
