    • Especially upper body fat  a male entity
  • 3. Abdominal Fat Topics of Discussion( measure by a waist/hip ratio)…….
    • High lipoprotein lipase for storage efficiency in waist area.
    • Responsive to adrenaline  abdominal fat releases FFAs  Liver which impedes insulin breakdown
  • 4. More Ab. Fat stuff……..
    • As insulin increases, body becomes insulin unresponsive…….and Diabetes
    • Increased Insulin levels promotes certain cancers
    • FFAs  Liver triglycerides

    • Upper body fat cells
    • Cortisol and BP and Diabetes
    • Males (young)-13-17% body fat
    • Females (young)- 20-27% body fat
    • More skeletal muscle in males!
  • 6. Skeletal Muscle
    • Muscle cells (fibers) are huge and have multi nuclei( not one like most cells)
    • Muscle cells increase size of fibers, not # of cells
    • Size and strength of skeletal muscle fibers with resistance exercise and androgen’s influence
  • 7. Other differences
    • Men have more calcium; stronger bones
    • The stimulus of muscle on bone and some continual T muscle strength

    • The disparity in mortality holds at birth and at old age as well
  • 10. Factors in Mortality:effects of Testosterone
    • T  CVD, Stroke, Prostate Cancer
    • More LDL Less HDL
    • Abdominal fat predisposition
    • > Clotting
    • > # RBCs
    • Blood vessel spasm
    • Effects directly on cardiac muscle
  • 11. Multiple Causes for increased male mortality and morbidity Visits, prevention, opening up to medical helpers… Health care More in men  CVD Iron MEN!!!!!!
