android fat distribution

Quick Reference

The distribution of adipose tissue mainly within and around the abdominal cavity. When excess fat is distributed in this way it can lead to ‘apple-shaped' obesity. It is far more common in males than females. Regardless of the level of obesity, this type of fat storage is associated with an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease. Compare gynoid fat distribution.
