From the article:

Using samples of adipose tissue from both visceral fat and subcutaneous fat from 18 people who underwent gastric bypass surgery, researchers found that subcutaneous fat has an intrinsic circadian rhythm in insulin sensitivity. Insulin sensitivity reached its maximum around noon, and was more than 50 percent higher than at midnight. Interestingly, the rhythm was not observed in visceral fat.


“Our study demonstrates that subcutaneous human fat tissue has an internal clock that is able to regulate insulin sensitivity even when outside of the body. This tissue rhythm matches well with what has been observed in humans overall when examining how people cope with a meal or sugar load,”
