Given the extreme increase in prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, and the potential for metabolic syndrome in obese youth, identifying simplified indexes for assessing stimulated insulin sensitivity is critical. The purpose of this study was validation of two surrogate indexes of insulin sensitivity determined from the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT): the composite whole body insulin sensitivity index (WBISI) and the insulin sensitivity index (ISI). An obese population (aged 8–18 yr) of normal and impaired glucose tolerance individuals was studied. One group (n = 38) performed both the euglycemic-hyperinsulinemic clamp and OGTT for comparison of insulin sensitivity measurements as well as 1H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy estimates of intramyocellular lipid content. Another larger (n = 368) cohort participated only in an OGTT. Both the WBISI and ISI represented good estimates (r = 0.78 and 0.74; P < 0.0005) for clamp-derived insulin sensitivity (glucose disposed, M-value), respectively. In the large cohort,...

Summary Background Impaired glucose tolerance is common among obese adolescents, but the changes in insulin sensitivity and secretion that lead to this prediabetic state are unknown. We investigated whether altered partitioning of myocellular and abdominal fat relates to abnormalities in glucose homoeostasis in obese adolescents with prediabetes. Methods We studied 14 obese children with impaired glucose tolerance and 14 with normal glucose tolerance, of similar ages, sex distribution, and degre...

The euglycemic hyperglycemic clamp is generally regarded as a reference method for assessing insulin sensitivity. However, this method is laborious and expensive. The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), the most commonly used method for evaluating whole body glucose tolerance, has often been used to assess insulin sensitivity. In the previous studies the correlation between the insulin sensitivity index (ISI) obtained from the OGTT (ISIOGTT) and those obtained from the glucose clamp (ISIClamp) m...

The relative contributions of insulin resistance and beta-cell dysfunction to the pathophysiology of Type 2 diabetes have been debated extensively. The concept that a feedback loop governs the interaction of the insulin-sensitive tissues and the beta cell as well as the elucidation of the hyperbolic relationship between insulin sensitivity and insulin secretion explains why insulin-resistant subjects exhibit markedly increased insulin responses while those who are insulin-sensitive have low resp...

Abstract Recent studies have demonstrated that fatty acids induce insulin resistance in skeletal muscle by blocking insulin activation of insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1)-associated phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-kinase). To examine the mechanism by which fatty acids mediate this effect, rats were infused with either a lipid emulsion (consisting mostly of 18:2 fatty acids) or glycerol. Intracellular C18:2 CoA increased in a time-dependent fashion, reaching an ∼6-fold elevation by 5 h, wh...

▪ Abstract Skeletal muscle contains the majority of the body's glycogen stores and a similar amount of readily accessible energy as intramyocellular triglyceride (imTG). While a number of factors have been considered to contribute to the pathogenesis of insulin resistance (IR) in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), this review will focus on the potential role of skeletal muscle triglyceride content. In obesity and type 2 DM, there is an increased content of lipid within and around muscle ...

Background Insulin resistance exists when a normal concentration of insulin produces a less than normal biological response. The ability to measure insulin resistance is important in order to understand the aetiopathology of Type 2 diabetes, to examine the epidemiology and to assess the effects of intervention. Methods We assess and compare methods of measurement and have undertaken a literature review from 1966 to 2001. Results Quantitative estimates of insulin resistance can be obtained using ...

The metabolism and composition of skeletal muscle tissue is of special interest because it is a primary site of insulin action and plays a key role in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance. Intramyocellular (IMCL) triglyceride stores are an accessible form of energy that may decrease skeletal muscle glucose utilization, thereby contributing to impaired glucose metabolism. Because of the invasive nature of muscle biopsies, there is limited, if any, information about intramuscular lipid stores in...

Summary Recent evidence from the United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study convincingly demonstrates that good glycaemic control is difficult to achieve and, despite its positive impact on microvascular complications, is not sufficient to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). Syndrome X—a cluster of abnormalities associated with resistance to insulin-mediated glucose uptake that have been implicated in accelerating atherogenesis—provides a useful clinical concept to prevent CHD in pat...

BACKGROUND: With increased rates of obesity and insulin resistance in youth, development of postprandial dyslipidemia, an important cardiovascular disease risk factor, is a concern. Glucagon-like peptides (ie, GLP-1 and GLP-2) and bile acids have been shown to regulate dietary fat absorption and postprandial lipids in animal models and humans. We hypothesize that the physiological response of GLPs and bile acids to dietary fat ingestion is impaired in adolescents with obesity and this associates...

Background: Excess gestational weight gain (GWG) in pregnant adolescents is a major public health concern. Excess GWG increases risk of pregnancy complications as well as postpartum and offspring obesity and cardiometabolic disease. Prevention interventions for pregnant adults that target lifestyle modification (i.e., healthy eating/physical activity) show insufficient effectiveness. Pregnant adolescents have distinct social-emotional needs, which may contribute to excess GWG. From an interperso...

Objective Impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) may convey disparate risks of metabolic consequences. Fasting plasma glucose (FPG), while an expedient screening procedure, may not adequately assess metabolic risk, particularly among youths. In order to inform a strategy for screening Chinese youth for pre-diabetes, we examined the relative value of IFG versus IGT to define metabolic risk by assessing their association with insulin resistance, beta-cell dysfunction, ...

The whole-body insulin sensitivity index (WBISI) is a widely used surrogate of insulin sensitivity estimated from glucose and insulin concentrations during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). The original WBISI uses five timepoints but reduced sampling models have been proposed. These reduced models have not been applied to the paediatric population. The purpose of this study is to compare cross-sectional agreement and changes in response to lifestyle intervention between the original WBISI a...

In recent years, pediatricians have been increasingly treating insulin resistance with drugs such as metformin to improve cardiovascular risk. However, some randomized controlled trials in adolescents reported that metformin has no effect on insulin resistance and its associated cardiovascular risk factors. This raises questions about the concept of insulin resistance as a treatment target. Furthermore, some shortcomings of the definition and measurement of insulin resistance in children and ado...

Insulin resistance is a central component to several important metabolic disorders and pathological conditions. Various methods are used to assess insulin sensitivity on both an individual level and epidemiological level. Several factors, such as validity, cost, and reproducibility, are important to the clinician and researcher in determining the most appropriate method. The insulin-clamp technique is considered the “gold standard” and provides the purest assessment of in vivo insulin sensitivit...

We examined the relationship between insulin clearance, insulin sensitivity, and β-cell function and the longitudinal effect of insulin clearance on β-cell function in lean and obese insulin-sensitive and insulin-resistant adolescents. A hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic and a hyperglycemic clamp were performed in 110 youths to quantify hepatic and peripheral clearance, insulin sensitivity, and β-cell function (disposition index, DIh-clamp). Participants underwent an oral glucose tolerance test at bas...

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common chronic liver disease in children, but diagnosis is challenging due to limited availability of noninvasive biomarkers. Machine learning applied to high‐resolution metabolomics and clinical phenotype data offers a novel framework for developing a NAFLD screening panel in youth. Here, untargeted metabolomics by liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry was performed on plasma samples from a combined cross‐sectional sample of children and ad...

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with an increased risk of kidney disease in adults and children. However, it is uncertain whether this association is influenced by major NAFLD susceptibility genes. In a sample of 230 overweight/obese children, 105 with NAFLD (hepatic fat fraction ≥5% by magnetic resonance imaging) and 125 without NAFLD, rs738409 in PNPLA3, rs58542926 in TM6SF2, rs1260326 in GCKR, and rs641738 in MBOAT7 were genotyped. Abnormal kidney function was defined a...
