Reduced oxygen consumption by fat cells improves metabolic defects, Published online: 19 November 2018; doi:10.1038/d41586-018-07248-6

Low oxygen levels are a hallmark of expanding fat tissue in obesity, and can lead to type 2 diabetes. In addition to a lack of adequate blood supply, increased oxygen demand in fat cells now emerges as being key to this harmful state.
