Physical Training Per se

2014-08-27 03:15:04 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators aimed to evaluate the health benefits of physical training per se, weight loss per se and exercise-induced weight loss in young, overweight men. The investigators hypothesized that physical training would have independent effects on various health parameters (insulin sensitivity, fasting glucose and insulin, total and abdominal fat mass, waist circumference, blood pressure and key muscle proteins), and that a concomitant weight loss from physical activity would increase the effect.

Description

At baseline, during the intervention and in the week following the intervention participants underwent a panel of tests:

- Cardio respiratory fitness

- blood pressure

- anthropometric measures

At baseline and after the intervention a hyperinsulinemic, euglycemic clamp were performed to asses insulin sensitivity.

Tissue and blood samples were also collected for further analysis:

- Total-protein analysis of selected proteins

- Fasting plasma glucose, insulin and free fatty acids

Lifestyle Intervention to Improve Insulin Sensitivity and Markers of Cardiovascular Risk in Prostate Cancer Survivors

The purpose of this study is to discover if intensive lifestyle changes (such as diet and increased physical activity) improve the body's sensitivity to insulin, and therefore help prevent...

The overall objectives of this study are to examine the relationships between circulating vitamin D, insulin sensitivity, and multiple indices of vascular function and to examine whether v...

The Effect of Blueberries on Enhancing Insulin Sensitivity in Humans

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of blueberry powder on insulin sensitivity in obese, non-diabetic, and insulin resistant subjects. The investigators hypothesized that s...

Effect of Dietary Polyphenols on Insulin Sensitivity

Tofogliflozin decreases body fat mass and improves peripheral insulin resistance.

The impact of tofogliflozin, a sodium glucose transporter 2 inhibitor, on peripheral glucose uptake in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) was investigated by the hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic...

Serum insulin bioassay reflects insulin sensitivity and requirements in type 1 diabetes.

Alternative translation initiation of Caveolin-2 desensitizes insulin signaling through dephosphorylation of insulin receptor by PTP1B and causes insulin resistance.

Insulin resistance, defined as attenuated sensitivity responding to insulin, impairs insulin action. Direct causes and molecular mechanisms of insulin resistance have thus far remained elusive. Here w...

Acute exercise alters skeletal muscle mitochondrial respiration and H2O2 emission in response to hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp in middle-aged obese men.

Obesity, sedentary lifestyle and aging are associated with mitochondrial dysfunction and impaired insulin sensitivity. Acute exercise increases insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle; however, whether...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A biguanide hypoglycemic agent used in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to dietary modification. Metformin improves glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p289)

A syndrome with excessively high INSULIN levels in the BLOOD. It may cause HYPOGLYCEMIA. Etiology of hyperinsulinism varies, including hypersecretion of a beta cell tumor (INSULINOMA); autoantibodies against insulin (INSULIN ANTIBODIES); defective insulin receptor (INSULIN RESISTANCE); or overuse of exogenous insulin or HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENTS.

Diminished effectiveness of INSULIN in lowering blood sugar levels: requiring the use of 200 units or more of insulin per day to prevent HYPERGLYCEMIA or KETOSIS. It can be caused by the presence of INSULIN ANTIBODIES or the abnormalities in insulin receptors (RECEPTOR, INSULIN) on target cell surfaces. It is often associated with OBESITY; DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS; INFECTION; and certain rare conditions. (from Stedman, 25th ed)

An insulin preparation that is designed to provide immediate and long term glycemic control in a single dosage. Biphasic insulin typically contains a mixture of REGULAR INSULIN or SHORT-ACTING INSULIN combined with a LONG-ACTING INSULIN.

Insulin formulation containing substance which delays or retards time period of the absorption of insulin.
