Adiposity is inversely related to insulin sensitivity in relatively lean Chinese adolescents: a population-based twin study.

BACKGROUND Adolescence is a critical period for rising adiposity and falling insulin sensitivity (IS), but the independent relation between adiposity and IS remains understudied. OBJECTIVE The objective was to examine which adiposity measures are most strongly associated with IS in nondiabetic adolescents, whether sex-difference exists, and to what degree… (More)
