The hidden belly fat

In this episode of "Gesundheit" from the Bayerischer Rundfunk the problem of hidden belly fat in normal weight persons is addressed. It can affect lean and thicker people alike: the visceral belly fat sits inside the abdomen and encloses important organs. The consequences can be serious: fatty liver, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The problem is that you can not see it from the outside and it only can be made visible with imaging tools like magnetic resonance spectroscopy or computed tomography. "Gesundheit" accompanies patients who got the surprising diagnosis and now do something against their belly fat.
