ABSTRACT
The article reports on a research that was conducted to investigate the efficacy of thiazolidinediones (TZDs) in preventing cushingoid lipodystrophy (CL). It mentions that CL results from differences in insulin resistance between visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and decreased peripheral subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT). It found that TZDs can prevent CL. Several medicals statistics related to the study are also presented.
