Lifestyle-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidemia are a prominent cause of mortality in Japan, and there is a strong requirement for elucidation of detailed molecular mechanisms and effective therapeutic strategies. Obesity-induced adipose tissue inflammation leads to dysregulation of adipokine production, which can cause lifestyle-related diseases. The interaction of organ systems via endocrine or neural networks is recognized as an important factor in the pathogenesis and promotion of lifestyle-related diseases. Therefore, further investigation for the interaction between adipose tissues and bones can provide new treatment strategies of metabolic bone disorders.
