Molecules secreted by adipose tissue may be involved in developing or triggering migraine.

Adipose tissue, or fatty tissue, secretes a wide range of molecules that could play a role in developing or triggering migraine. Your weight can play a very significant role in developing or triggering migraine, whether it be over or under weight.

Compared to patients of normal weight, the risk of migraine in patients with obesity was increased by 27% , according to research meta-analysis.  Compared to patients of normal weight, the risk of migraine in patients of underweight status was increased by 13%  according to research meta-analysis.

According to study findings, patients with migraine are more likely to underestimate their self-reported BMI according to research cited in a literature review article published online in Neurology Reviews.
