On their first admission, the investigators used a hyperinsulinemic/euglycemic clamp to assess in vivo insulin sensitivity
Despite these children's being identical to each other in all important metabolic ways, the white children had significantly higher insulin sensitivity
than the black children.
Effect of sustained physiologic hyperinsulinaemia and hyperglycaemia on insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity
The investigators calculated insulin sensitivity
and area under the curve (AUC) for glucose and insulin.
We hypothesized that insulin sensitivity
would increase as iron stores decreased in nonpathologic conditions.
in Chinese ovo-lacto vegetarians compared with omnivores.
Low insulin sensitivity
means insulin can't do its job properly and the body is more likely to gain weight and even develop diabetes.
Pioglitazone improves insulin sensitivity
by modulating novel biomarkers in impaired glucose tolerance" (Audio poster tour)
Although the effect of a single bout of exercise on insulin sensitivity
is reported to persist only for 2-3 days, effects remain unclear of a 12-week aerobic exercise training on insulin sensitivity
, quality of life (QOL), and depression status over time as exercise training duration increases in patients with T2DM.
Those who ate the recommended protein amount improved insulin sensitivity
up to 30 percent, while those on the high-protein diet saw no improvement.
Research suggests that, for women on a weight-loss diet, eating too much protein may eliminate a common health benefit of weight loss: improved insulin sensitivity
, which can lower the risk of diabetes.
Fasting glucose, pancreatic beta cell function, insulin sensitivity
and resistance, serum zinc, and lipids were measured at the beginning and end of the study.
