Around 30 to 50% of obese subjects are “metabolically normal” (MHO) whereas numerous nonobese subjects are “metabolically abnormal”. The distribution and function of adipose deposits seem to play a crucial role in explaining this apparent paradox. The aim of this first article is to describe the clinical and biological characteristics that lead to the diagnosis of MHO, attempt to discover the etiopathogenesis of this syndrome and analyze the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms and, finally, to assess the prevalence of the MHO phenotype, which may vary according to the definition used and the population studied.

Metabolically obese normal-weight (MONW) individuals are frequently not detected because of a falsely reassuring body weight. However, they have most of the metabolic syndrome markers known to be associated with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and mortality. The present review paper aims to describe the clinical consequences to which MONW people are exposed and the main principles of managing this syndrome [less ▲]

Obesity, particularly abdominal obesity, is the main risk factor for metabolic syndrome. However, some non-obese individuals are metabolically abnormal and therefore probably have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The present review paper aims to describe the main characteristics of the metabolically obese normal-weight (MONW) syndrome, analyse its etiopathogenesis and pathophysiology and, finally, assess its prevalence in various populations.
