Is Fat Around the Hips Good?
Harvard Medical School

According to a study done at Harvard Medical School in Boston, a fat that collects under the skin, helped to improve sensitivity to the hormone insulin, which regulates blood sugar.

Dr.Ronald Kahn and colleagues conducted a series of experiments on mice where they transplanted subcutaneous fat into their bellies.
After the transplanting procedure, their bellies started to slim down and after several weeks improvement was seen in the blood sugar and insulin levels.

The study found that fat located in different parts of the body seemed to have different risks of metabolic disease such as diabetes.
