CEU Course Description

Visceral fat-type obesity induces type-2 diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.  Subcutaneous fat-type obesity is associated with excessive weight gain, and is thought to be the main risk factor for osteoarthritis of the knee, sleep apnea, and menstrual abnormalities.  Due to the numerous consequences of increased fat mass, this CEU course evaluates the anti-obesity effect of glucosyl hesperidin plus caffeine on body fat and serum triglyceride in healthy subjects with moderately high body mass index and serum triglyceride.
