    Visceral Fat (Active Fat)

    Type 2 diabetes can be caused by storing high amounts of visceral fat

    Visceral fat is body fat that is stored within the abdominal cavity and is therefore stored around a number of important internal organs such as the liver, pancreas and intestines.

    Visceral fat is sometimes referred to as ‘active fat’ because research has shown that this type of fat plays a distinctive and potentially dangerous role affecting how our hormones function.

    Storing higher amounts of visceral fat is associated with increased risks of a number of health problems including type 2 diabetes.
