Abstract

The relationship between adipose-cell size and plasma levels of immunoreactive insulin (I.R.I.) was studied in 73 normal and obese individuals and in 12 obese patients before and after weight reduction. A strong positive correlation was found between adipose-cell size and fasting I.R.I. in both groups. This relation exists despite the widely differing degrees of obesity (and, therefore, their probable different total carbohydrate intakes). It is suggested that the increased adipose-cell size seen in obesity could sensitise the pancreas to produce more insulin.
