Active brown adipose tissue protects against ‘pre-prediabetes’

In a prospective study of young, lean adults, PET/CT imaging revealed that higher levels of active brown adipose tissue (also known as ‘brown fat’) are more prevalent in individuals who exhibit very early indications of metabolic disorders. The study suggests that active brown fat is recruited to counteract ‘pre-prediabetic’ states, potentially serving as a first-line protective mechanism against very early metabolic or hormonal abnormalities.
