Per Björntorp spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Adipose tissue, Obesity and Abdominal obesity. Internal medicine is closely attributed to Diabetes mellitus in his work. Endocrinology is a component of his Insulin, Insulin resistance, Lipolysis, Testosterone and Androgen studies.
His Adipose tissue research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Triglyceride and Abdomen. Per Björntorp interconnects Anthropometry, Gerontology, Blood pressure and Physiology in the investigation of issues within Obesity. The concepts of his Abdominal obesity study are interwoven with issues in Non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, Dexamethasone suppression test, Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis and Insulin metabolism, Insulin secretion.
Per Björntorp mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Adipose tissue, Obesity and Insulin. His study brings together the fields of Diabetes mellitus and Internal medicine. His Adipose tissue research includes elements of Glycerol and Metabolism.
His Obesity research integrates issues from Physical therapy, Classification of obesity, Disease and Physiology. His Abdominal obesity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cortisol secretion and Hydrocortisone. His work deals with themes such as Anthropometry and Risk factor, which intersect with Body mass index.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Obesity, Insulin and Adipose tissue. His Internal medicine research incorporates themes from Diabetes mellitus and Allele. Abdominal obesity, Glucocorticoid, Cortisol secretion, Body mass index and Leptin are subfields of Endocrinology in which his conducts study.
In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Obesity, Stroke is strongly linked to Disease. In his research on the topic of Insulin, Blood lipids is strongly related with Genotype. His Adipose tissue research focuses on Biopsy and how it connects with Lipogenesis.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Obesity, Glucocorticoid and Abdominal obesity. His studies in Hydrocortisone, Cortisol secretion, Insulin, Body mass index and Adipose tissue are all subfields of Internal medicine research. His Adipose tissue research includes themes of Decreased glucose tolerance, Blood lipids, Basal rate and Forskolin.
As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Obesity, focusing on Hormone and, on occasion, Maternal effect and Pregnancy. In Abdominal obesity, he works on issues like Type 2 diabetes, which are connected to Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Dexamethasone suppression test. As part of one scientific family, Per Björntorp deals mainly with the area of Blood pressure, narrowing it down to issues related to the Diabetes mellitus, and often Disease.
