β-hydroxybutyrate decreases visceral adipocyte volume: a Rats had a decreased percentage of visceral fat (−16%) and b, c and image [control in left, treatment on right]) a small adipocyte volume (−30%) after 4 weeks of treatment. d A negative correlation between cell volume and mean of ketonemia were found (p > 0,01). n = 9-10. Student’s t test *p < 0.05. Data represent as mean (SEM)
