Abstract
This study was designed to investigate the effect of cryolipolysis on insulin resistance in obese postmenopausal women. Forty obese postmenopausal women with insulin resistance participated in this study. They were selected randomly from the outpatient clinic of Kasre El Ainy University Hospital in Cairo. Their ages were ranged from 50 to 60 years old and their body mass index was >30 kg/m. They were diagnosed as having insulin resistance; if they had one or more of the signs of insulin resistance as fatigue, brain fogginess, inability to focus, weight gain, difficulty losing weight, fat storage in and around abdominal organ, elevated blood triglyceride levels, sleepiness especially after meals, acanthosis nigricans and HOMA-IR (measuring insulin resistance equation) was more than (1). They were divided into two equal groups; group A (Control group) consisted of 20 women and treated by moderate restricted diet for 5 months, group B (Study group) consisted of 20 women treated by the same moderate restricted diet in group A and cryolipolysis sessions on abdominal obesity (1 session / 3week, for 5 months). BMI was assessed by using standard weight-height scale, waist circumference was assessed by tape measurement, skin fold thickness was assessed by skin fold caliper, insulin resistance was assessed by Homeostatic Model Assessment (HOMA-IR) for all women in both groups (A, B) before and after treatment. Results of this study found that, there was a statistically significant decrease in BMI, waist circumference, skin fold thickness, fasting glucose, fasting insulin and insulin resistance at post treatment in compare to pre-treatment (P-value < 0. 001*) in both groups A and B. Between groups, there was no statistical significant difference in BMI, waist circumference, skin fold thickness, fasting glucose, fasting insulin and insulin resistance pretreatment, but there was a statistically significant difference in BMI, waist circumference, skin fold thickness, fasting glucose, fasting insulin and insulin resistance post treatment (more decrease in group B). Accordingly, it can be concluded that cryolipolysis is effective in reducing insulin resistance in obese postmenopausal women.

Key words: Cryolipolysis, Insulin resistance, Obese, Menopause.
