The ability to increase β-cell function in the face of reduced insulin sensitivity is essential for normal glucose tolerance. Because high-fat feeding reduces both insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance, we hypothesized that it also reduces β-cell compensation. To test this hypothesis, we used intravenous glucose tolerance testing with minimal model analysis to measure glucose tolerance (K g), insulin sensitivity (SI), and the acute insulin response to glucose (AIRg) in nine dogs fed a chow diet and again after 7 wk of high-fat feeding. Additionally, we measured the effect of consuming each diet on 24-h profiles of insulin and glucose. After high-fat feeding, SI decreased by 57% (P = 0.003) but AIRg was unchanged. This absence of β-cell compensation to insulin resistance contributed to a 41% reduction of K g(P = 0.003) and abolished the normal hyperbolic relationship between AIRg and SI observed at baseline. High-fat feeding also elicited a 44% lower 24-h insulin level (P = 0.004) in association with a...

Studies have shown that a high plasma non-esterified fatty acid concentration may inhibit glucose induced insulin secretion in vitro and in vivo. The effect of lowering the fatty acid concentration on the acute insulin response was investigated in first degree relatives of people with Type II diabetes in a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled trial. Fifty first degree relatives of people with Type II diabetes volunteered for the study. Twenty five were given acipimox (250 mg/day, four ti...

Over 30 years after the original description of Randle’s cycle, the mechanisms by which elevated circulating non-esterified fatty acids might be causally related to glucose intolerance in Type 2 diabetes mellitus remain uncertain. This review examines the evidence that elevated plasma NEFA can inhibit glucose-stimulated insulin secretion by pancreatic beta-cells and impair glucose- and insulin-stimulated glucose disposal by peripheral tissues. Experimental evidence beginning to examine the mecha...

The pancreatic beta cell normally maintains a stable balance among insulin secretion, insulin production, and insulin degradation to keep optimal intracellular stores of the hormone. Elevated levels of FFA markedly enhance insulin secretion; however, the effects of FFA on insulin production and intracellular stores remain unclear. In this study, twofold elevation in total circulating FFA effected by infusion of lard oil and heparin into rats for 6 h under normoglycemic conditions resulted in a m...

Plasma glucose and insulin responses to a graded iv infusion of glucose were compared in two groups of glucose-tolerant women divided on the basis of their insulin sensitivity. Resistance to insulin-mediated glucose disposal was measured using the insulin suppression test, and the women studied were chosen to represent the highest and lowest quartiles of insulin resistance seen in the normal population. The sensitivity of the pancreatic β-cell to glucose was assessed by measuring the glucose, in...

To examine whether the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway might play a role in fat-induced insulin resistance, we monitored the effects of prolonged elevations in FFA availability both on skeletal muscle levels of UDP-N-acetyl-hexosamines and on peripheral glucose disposal during 7-h euglycemic-hyperinsulinemic (approximately 500 microU/ml) clamp studies. When the insulin-induced decrease in the plasma FFA levels (to approximately 0.3 mM) was prevented by infusion of a lipid emulsion in 15 consciou...

The current study evaluated both the time course of insulin resistance associated with feeding dogs a high-fat diet and the relationship between the development of insulin resistance and the increase in blood pressure that also occurs. Twelve adult mongrel dogs were chronically instrumented and randomly assigned to either a control diet group (n = 4) or a high-fat diet group (n = 8). Insulin resistance was assessed by a weekly, single-dose (2 euglycemic-hyperinsulinemic clamp on a...

Evidence is reviewed that free fatty acids (FFAs) are one important link between obesity and insulin resistance and NIDDM. First, plasma FFA levels are elevated in most obese subjects. Second, physiological elevations in plasma FFA concentrations inhibit insulin stimulated peripheral glucose uptake in a dose-dependent manner in normal controls and in patients with NIDDM. Two possible mechanisms are identified: 1 ) a fat-related inhibition of glucose transport or phosphorylation, which appears af...

From the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study (IRAS), 1173 men and women of African-American, non-Hispanic white, and Hispanic ethnicity with no history of diabetes were included in an evaluation of the cross-sectional relation of habitual dietary fat intake with insulin sensitivity (S I ) as assessed by minimal-model analysis of a 12-sample, insulin-modified frequently sampled intravenous-glucose-tolerance test. Dietary intake was measured by a food-frequency interview modified to enhance s...

To study the islet adaptation to reduced insulin sensitivity in normal and glucose intolerant post-menopausal women, we performed a euglycaemic, hyperinsulinaemic clamp in 108 randomly selected women, aged 58–59 years. Of the 20 women with the lowest insulin sensitivity, 11 had impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) whereas 9 had normal glucose tolerance (NGT). These women together with 15 women with medium insulin sensitivity and 16 women with high insulin sensitivity and NGT were further examined wi...

Abstract Background Epidemiological studies proposed a linear connection between developing dementia including Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and obesity. Adiposity, insulin resistance and dementia indicated probable mechanistic links in this process. Indeed, it has been known that optimum insulin action in the brain plays critical role in cognitive function; whereas, insulin resistance in obese individuals finally leads to insulin deficiency in central nervous system (CNS) and down regulation of the ...

Excess free fatty acid accumulation from abnormal lipid metabolism results in the insulin resistance in peripheral cells, subsequently causing hyperinsulinemia, hyperglycemia and/or hyperlipidemia in diabetes mellitus (DM) patients. Herein, we investigated the effect of phenolic acids on glucose uptake in an insulin-resistant cell-culture model and on hepatic insulin resistance and inflammation in rats fed a high-fat diet (HFD). The results show that vanillic acid (VA) demonstrated the highest g...

The maintenance of blood glucose homeostasis is complex and involves several key tissues. Most of these tissues are not easily accessible, making direct measurement of the physiological parameters involved in glucose metabolism difficult. The use of isotope tracer methodology and mathematical modeling allows indirect estimates of in vivo glucose metabolism through relatively noninvasive means. The purpose of this paper was to provide a mathematical synthesis of the models developed for describin...

Consumption of energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods has contributed to the rising incidence of obesity and may underlie insulin resistance and β-cell dysfunction. Macronutrient intake patterns were examined in relation to anthropometric and metabolic traits in participants of BetaGene, a family-based study of obesity, insulin resistance, and β-cell dysfunction in Mexican Americans. Dietary intake, body composition, insulin sensitivity (SI), and β-cell function [Disposition Index (DI)] were assessed...

Diabetes mellitus is considered as a common metabolic disease diagnosed frequently in canine and feline pathology. On the other hand, clinical syndrome of diabetes is described rarely in other domestic species (cattle, small ruminants, swine and horses) [1-3]. Many similarities with human counterpart are clearly emphasized in the literature, considering the mechanism of this disease. This is the reason why the animals are frequently used in many research studies with respect to etiopathogenesis ...
