    • Balakumar, M., Raji, L., Prabhu, D., Sathishkumar, C., Prabu, P., Mohan, V., & Balasubramanyam, M. (2016). High-fructose diet is as detrimental as high-fat diet in the induction of insulin resistance and diabetes mediated by hepatic/pancreatic endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. The authority of this scholarly journal is proven by the mere fact that it was approved by the Biology-Cytology and Histology Council and has been included in Carroll’s very own research database. Currency of the journal

  • The Effect Of Exercise On Insulin Resistance

    2009 Words  | 9 Pages

    Insulin Resistance and Exercise in Adolescents Amy Fish & Cyler Matlock ESS 5336 11/25/14 Abstract Objective: To examine studies on the effects of exercise on insulin resistance in the adolescent population. Insulin resistance is a common trait in obese and overweight individuals. When the cell resists insulin, glucose is unable to be converted into energy. This causes an excess of glucose in the blood and is then stored as fat. Exercise has been found to decrease insulin resistance and

  • Diabetes Mellitus And Insulin Resistance

    3121 Words  | 13 Pages

    1.1 Diabetes mellitus and Insulin resistance Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes, is a metabolic disorder that is marked by hyperglycemia, high blood glucose. In 2014, 29.1 million individuals in the United States, which is about 9.3% of the population, have diabetes . Among all cases of diabetes, about 90% to 95% are Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), the diabetes form generally results from defects in insulin action . Furthermore, other related complications of diabetes will afflict patients with their cardinal

  • How Does The Undergo Muscle Insulin Resistance?

    1292 Words  | 6 Pages

    Abstract Insulin resistance is directly linked to insulin signaling in target tissues, including skeletal muscle. The purpose of this study is to determine if acylcarnitines undergo muscle insulin resistance. This research establishes a connection between incomplete β-oxidation of muscle fatty acids to development of insulin resistance and oxidative stress. C2C12 cells, primary mice muscle and human myotubes were isolated to test insulin, inflammatory and antioxidant response. Acylcarnitine treatment

  • Insulin Resistance and Exercise Essay

    2322 Words  | 10 Pages

    a general resistance to insulin. The physiological stress that is associated with damaged muscle impairs how insulin stimulates IRS-1, PI 3-kinase, and Akt-kinase. This presumably leads to less glucose absorption. Previous studies have shown that there has been temporary insulin resistance due to the physiological stress associated with muscle damage. However, the molecular mechanisms by which physiological stress induces insulin resistance is not known. The many effects that insulin has on metabolism

  • Studies of Arizona Insulin Resistance (AIR) Registry

    Arizona Insulin Resistance (AIR) Registry All study participants were Mexican American from the Arizona Insulin Resistance (AIR) registry. A description of the registry has been discussed elsewhere [25]. Briefly, of the 667 participants enrolled in the study, 353 were distributed across 92 families from the AIR registry. The remaining 314 participants were found to be represented by single individuals. These 314 single, unrelated individuals were considered for the analysis because they contribute

    years without it being detected (Lewis et al., 2014, p. 1222). With type 2, insulin is still being made by the body and it is either just not enough to support the individual 's needs or not being processed effectively (Lewis et al., 2014, p. 1221). There are four main ways that insulin problems are seen to have and effect, the first of which being insulin resistance. Insulin resistance occurs when there is plenty of insulin but it is not responded to by the body tissues that have built up an immunity

  • Pregnancy Institutes A State Of Insulin Resistance And Hyperinsulinemia Essay

    1691 Words  | 7 Pages

    Pregnancy institutes a state of insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia, a condition involving the increase of insulin circulating in the blood(Association, 2004). This altered state predisposes some women to form a degree of glucose intolerance with onset that was otherwise not recognized preceding pregnancy (Association, 2004; Gilmartin, Ural, & Repke, 2008; Kaaja & Rönnemaa, 2008). This form of intolerance is referred to as Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM). GDM stems from a variety of factors

    The Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Insulin Resistance and Type 2 Diabetes A Meta-Analysis Dalal Mazraeh Saint James School of Medicine Preceptor: Maja Delibasic, M.D. ABSTRACT Sleep deprivation and sleep restriction leads to insulin resistance and the development of type 2 diabetes. To study whether shortened sleep and sleep deprivation affects insulin resistance and glucose intolerance, we developed a meta-analysis of 7 studies that research this topic. The studies included had

  • Relationship between Exposure to PAH's and Insulin Resistance

    induce insulin resistance.16-21 Since air pollution as well as smoking and red meat consumption were consistently linked to cardiometabolic diseases such as diabetes,22,23 and all of them are important exposure sources of PAHs, it’s biologically plausible that PAHs may play important roles in the relationship between cigarette smoking, ambient air pollution and cardiometabolic diseases. Insulin resistance is a state where there is reduced biological effect for any given concentration of insulin.24,25
