Increased postprandial nonesterified fatty acid efflux from adipose tissue in prediabetes is offset by enhanced dietary fatty acid adipose trapping.

Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 2021 Apr 19. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Medicine, Endocrinology department, Medicine Division,CHUS Research Center, Sherbrooke University, 3001 12th Avenue North, Sherbrooke, QC, J1H 5N4, Canada.

The mechanism of increased postprandial nonesterified fatty acid (NEFA) appearance in the circulation in impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) is due to increased adipose tissue lipolysis but could also be contributed to by reduced adipose tissue (AT) dietary fatty acid (DFA) trapping and increased 'spillover' into the circulation. Thirty-one subjects with IGT (14 women, 17 men) and 29 with normal glucose tolerance (NGT, 15 women, 14 men) underwent a meal test with oral and intravenous palmitate tracers and the oral [F]-fluoro-thia-heptadecanoic acid positron emission tomography method. Postprandial palmitate appearance (Ra) was higher in IGT vs. Read More
