- association between migraine and obesity - evaluate serum adipokine levels [ Time Frame: 5 years ]The first aim of the proposed research is to evaluate serum adipokine levels in a clinical cohort of obese and non-obese episodic and chronic migraineurs and examine their utility as markers of the presence or absence of migraine and their relationship to headache frequency.
- association between migraine and obesity -evaluate subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) and its ratio to visceral adipose tissue (VAT) [ Time Frame: five years ]The second aim of the proposed research is to evaluate subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) and its ratio to visceral adipose tissue (VAT),in the same clinical cohort of migraineurs to determine if regional adipose tissue differences exist between: (1) episodic migraineurs, (2) chronic migraineurs and (3) controls, thus contributing to the migraine-obesity relationship.
