Abstract

Obesity has been growing at an alarm rate worldwide Several evidence highlights the role of obesity in the development cardiovascular risk and ischemic diseases. Visceral fat contributes to a systemic inflammatory state and circulating mediators of inflammation participate in the mechanisms of vascular damage in obese patients. Moreover, these inflammatory proteins cause insulin-resistance leading to FRC appearance and cardiovascular disease

This review shows how the obesity causes inflammatory state and insulin resistance enhancing cardiovascular risk.

Keywords: Obesity; Inflammation; Insulin-Resistance; Cardiovascular Risk
