Medical visualization of visceral and subcutaneous fat. Subcutaneous fat forms just under the skin, while visceral fat is stored around the organs. Visceral fat, the kind deep inside the abdomen, releases inflammatory chemicals into the liver and creates long-term, system-wide inflammation. Chronic inflammation can cause a variety of illnesses, including asthma, autoimmune diseases, atherosclerosis, and cancer.
