Doctor Says…About Abdominal Fat

There are two types of body fat: subcutaneous (under the skin) and visceral (which lies deep within the abdomen, under muscle and around organs). Some people may seem otherwise thin but have a lot of visceral fat. That’s dangerous. “Visceral fat cells secrete hormones, much like other endocrine organs in the body such as your thyroid or pancreas,” says Spencer Kroll, MD, Ph.D., FNLA, a New Jersey-based internal medicine physician.
