In the present study we estimated the IMCL content in soleus muscle in 30 healthy Asian Indian males using 1H MR spectroscopy and correlated it with body mass index, measures of abdominal obesity, percentage of body fat, serum lipoproteins, fasting and post-oral glucose load serum insulin levels and other surrogate markers of insulin resistance. Soleus muscle IMCL content correlated significantly with measure of generalized and abdominal obesity but not with insulin sensitivity or CRP levels in healthy Asian Indian males
