Vascular Impairments Caused by Endothelial Dysfunction Caused by Belly Fat.

Extra belly fat (visceral obesity) causes endothelial dysfunction, which impairs blood vessel lining function. This malfunction can cause vascular deficits and cardiovascular disorders.

Inflammatory Substances: Excess belly fat, especially visceral fat, releases adipokines due to metabolic activity. These inflammatory chemicals cause chronic low-grade inflammation in blood vessels and elsewhere.

Insulin Resistance: Visceral obesity is typically linked to insulin resistance, a condition where cells become less insulin-responsive. 

Oxidative Stress: Belly fat can cause oxidative stress, a condition caused by an imbalance between free radical production and the body's ability to counteract them. 

 Adipokines and Endothelial Dysfunction: Adipose tissue hormones regulate vascular function. Belly fat adipokines can cause endothelial dysfunction, inflammation, and vasoconstriction.

Reduced Nitric Oxide Production: Endothelial cells create NO, a vital chemical that regulates blood flow and dilates blood arteries. Endothelial dysfunction reduces NO bioavailability, causing vasoconstriction and blood vessel malfunction.

Blood Pressure Dysregulation: Impaired endothelial function can cause blood pressure dysregulation. The endothelium maintains vascular tone, and malfunction can cause hypertension.

Reduced Vasodilation: Healthy endothelial function promotes blood vessel widening. Endothelial dysfunction reduces vasodilation, raising blood pressure and reducing blood flow.
