Exercise And Insulin Resistance In Youth: A Meta-analysis

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The prevalence of obesity and diabetes is increasing among children, adolescents, and adults. Although estimates of the efficacy of exercise training on fasting insulin and insulin resistance have been provided, for adults similar estimates have not been provided for youth. This systematic review and meta-analysis provides a quantitative estimate of the effectiveness of exercise training on fasting insulin and insulin resistance in children and adolescents. METHODS: Potential sources were limited to peer-reviewed articles published before June 25, 2013, and gathered from the PubMed, SPORTDiscus, Physical Education Index, and Web of Science online databases. Analysis was limited to randomized controlled trials by using combinations of the terms adolescent, child, pediatric, youth, exercise training, physical activity, diabetes, insulin, randomized trial, and randomized controlled trial. The authors assessed 546 sources, of which 4.4% (24 studies) were eligible for inclusion. Thirty-two effects were used to estimate the effect of exercise training on fasting insulin, with 15 effects measuring the effect on insulin resistance. Estimated effects were Continue reading >>

    Insulin syringes for Testosterone - What size is best?

    Will be injecting Test C, sub Q, with insulin syringes. I've got plenty of 29 gauge, 1/2, 1cc that I use for my hCG . Crisler recommends a slightly larger gauge - 25 gauge. He explains on his You Tube that injecting with too thin a needle - too small a gauge - can damage tissue. What do you use? What has been your experience?

    over a year of pinning SQ with that needle, gotta catch that vid, am not aware of any tissue destruction, quite the opposite actually. I use the the 31 gauge 5/16 for HCG , hope I'm not destroying even more tissue!

  • How Does Exercise Affect Insulin Sensitivity?

    Our genes have been programmed to thrive on physical movement. This is the fundamental reason that exercise is so important. The necessity for motion has been hardwired into the very function of our cells, which means that leading a sedentary life is not congruent with our innate genetic requirements. Let me clarify that nutrition and exercise are not treatments for disease. They are the means by which we unlock our potential for optimal function ...

  • Exercise Insulin Sensitivity

    What is insulin sensitivity? Definitions Insulin sensitivity is a general phenomena in the body, and can be measured a few ways through studies. The pancreas (an organ that regulates blood sugar) secretes insulin in response to high blood sugar, and cells (like muscle or fat cells) can absorb blood sugar when stimulated by insulin. Insulin sensitivity is the relationship between how much insulin needs to be produced in order to deposit a certain ...

  • Insulin Sensitivity Vs Insulin Resistance

    Insulin resistance (IR) is a pathological condition in which cells fail to respond normally to the hormone insulin. The body produces insulin when glucose starts to be released into the bloodstream from the digestion of carbohydrates in the diet. Normally this insulin response triggers glucose being taken into body cells, to be used for energy, and inhibits the body from using fat for energy. The concentration of glucose in the blood decreases as ...

  • What Is Insulin Sensitivity And Resistance?

    Insulin resistance is a syndrome at the center of many chronic and serious health problems, including diabetes, obesity, heart disease and polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS. Insulin is one of the “major” hormones and it has a cascading effect on the rest of your hormones, including the “minor” hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Insulin resistance occurs because, for many of us, most of our calories come in the form of simpl ...

  • Estrogen And Insulin Sensitivity

    Abstract Both insulin resistance and estrogen deficiency result in complex metabolic disorder based mainly on defective cellular glucose uptake and on an atherogenic serum lipid profile. These alterations may be regarded as high risks for several life-threatening human diseases, such as type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular lesions and malignancies. Insulin resistance and estrogen deficiency are concomitant disorders with mutual interrelationship. Insu ...
